We’re always on the lookout for Meghan Markle news, just because the new member of the royal family slays on every front. And our wishes have come true!

Just five months after the most expensive royal wedding, Kensington Palace confirms that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is pregnant!

The Huge Givenchy Coat Was To Hide The Pregnancy!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were just seen last on Friday at Princess Eugenie’s wedding. The Duchess of Sussex was seen in a Givenchy navy blue coat, hiding any signs of her pregnancy. 

In fact, the newly-minted Duchess also reportedly wore jewellery worth S$10,868 (£6,000). She wore the Herkimer diamonds (clear quartz), in her bracelet, rings and earrings. 

The bracelet was 18-carat gold with diamonds and was worth S$3112 (£1,782). While the rings were worth S$6,731 (£3,720) and the earrings were worth S$941 (£520).

But even the bling and the haute couture coat couldn't hide the excitement and glow on Markle's face. And as many speculated, the Palace announced the 'good news' hours after the couple landed in Sydney, Australia, for their first oversees trip.
