“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” the statement from the palace read on October 15. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
The newly minted royal showed off her growing baby bump in this floor-length gown for the State dinner on October 23, 2018, in Suva, Fiji. At the time, the duke and duchess were on their 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
Meghan held hands with her man, 34, while walking over to participate in the Unveiling of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy at Tupou College on October 26, 2018, in Nuku’alofa, Tonga. Even Harry got in on the alleged hinting and wore a blue shirt!
Smiling from ear to ear. How could you not be when you’re married to a prince, amirite? Meg got cheeky in this lil number on October 31. Seriously, her tush was actually exposed in the custom Givenchy skirt. Scandalous!
Fast forward to January and baby Sussex is more prominent than ever! Meghan was absolutely glowing in this gorgeous sequined dress at the Cirque du Soleil Premiere of “TOTEM” at Royal Albert Hall on January 16, 2019, in London, England.
One day later, on February 25, Meghan and Harry met with King Mohammed VI of Morocco. Kensington Palace wrote on Instagram at the time, “In their final engagement during #RoyalVisitMorocco, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended an audience with The King of Morocco at a Royal Residence. Before the audience, Their Royal Highnesses presented letters from Her Majesty The Queen to The King.”
As for her pink looks? Well, it appears she only wore the color twice during her pregnancy. Here, Meghan visited the Royal Variety Charity’s at Brinsworth House on December 18, 2018, in Twickenham, England.
And on January 30, 2019, the former actress made an appearance at The National Theatre on in London, England.
In other words, take this with a grain of salt. But TBH, we’re pretty convinced the couple knew the gender ahead of time! After all, Us Weekly revealed in February that Meghan confessed to her closest pals that she was having a boy. Not to mention, her BFF Abigail Spencer was spotted with two separate gifts, both wrapped in blue. We see you, Meg!
