The internet broke again as soon as the photos of the much-awaited debut of Meghan Markle’s baby bump.
Cosmopolitan said the world has been aggressively on #bumpwatch since the royal couple, Markle and husband Prince Harry, announced that they are expecting their first child. In a royal tour today, the magazine reported that the Duchess of Sussex “stepped out during their royal tour in an outfit that definitely shows it off.”
Sources said she is on her 12th week into the pregnancy and is reportedly feeling well.
“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 Kensington Palace said in their announcement.
People reported that “Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are “delighted” for the couple — as are Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall,” adding that they were congratulated in person by those attending the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie last week.
Reports that Markle may be pregnant surfaced when people noticed her outfit choice for the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie. Cosmopolitan noted that Markle kept her coat on the entire time.
The suspicion, too, heightened when it was accidentally revealed that Markle will not be joining the royal tour in Fiji, where there are worries over the spread of Zika virus, which is very harmful to pregnant women and their unborn child.
The royal couple is currently in Australia now for a royal tour.
