Now that Meghan Markle’s announced her pregnancy, eagle-eyed royalty fans are keen to find out as much about hers and Prince Harry’s incoming child as humanly possible.
Save from rifling round Kensington Palace with a long-lens camera for a picture of the sonogram scan of the foetus inside the Duchess of Sussex’s womb, or simply running up to her and doing one through her lovely clothes, because really, there are limits, people are poring over her every public move.

April matches with the ‘Spring 2019’ of the official statement, so perhaps Megan is due to give birth in April. We’ll have to wait and see. What’s for sure, though, is Megan’s shown how to do bling in a very ethical way. Perhaps we can match her efforts by not prying too much into this special time in Megan and Harry’s lives. That is, until Megan, who loves to tell a story with clothes, gives us all a massive hint…
