Do Meghan Markle's Rings Hint At When The New Royal Baby Will Be Born?

If theories are correct, we might already know when the Duchess of Sussex is due!

Any follower of the British royal family knows that their jewels often hold a lot of meaning, which is why fans are constantly trying to suss out the significance behind each royal's accessory choices. Most recently, fans have zeroed in on the stacked Meghan Markle rings from the Canadian brand Ecksand, which she wore during the Invictus Games in Australia.

Why? They believe that this hints at when the Duchess of Sussex is expecting her first child.

Just last week, Kensington Palace confirmed that the former Suits actress is pregnant, and that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be expecting their first child in the spring. And if the eagle-eyed fans are correct, Meghan's stacked rings could be indicating the specific month.

Meghan Markle Rings: What Are Their Significance?

Royal fun @DuchyofSuccess tweeted: "I'm hoping Meghan's stacked rings represent their birthstones and Baby Sussex is an April baby."

Born in September, Harry's birthstone is the sapphire. And being born in August, Meghan's birthstone is the peridot. However, the green gem the Meghan wore isn't a peridot, but an emerald — but that might be because Ecksand doesn't stock peridot.

The specific rings that Meghan wore are the Ecksand Showcase collection of stackable ethical gemstone rings in blue sapphire, emerald, and marquise diamond, all set in 18K sustainable, recycled gold.

This theory is in line with the buzz around the pregnancy. Aussie singer Missy Higgins recently claimed that Meghan is already four months pregnant. "She was such a sweetheart," Higgins wrote in her Instagram caption. "I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months old! what a trooper."

If Higgins is correct, that means Meghan is around 17 or 18 weeks pregnant, so an April due date does seem to check out.

Of course, Meghan might not be due in April, but if these theories behind the stacked Meghan Markle rings are correct, wouldn't that be too cute?
