Is Meghan Markle pregnant? On Wednesday evening, Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry hosted a theatre charity event. While many were preoccupied with her tuxedo minidress, others remarked that she looked like she was sporting a baby bump. Are Meghan and Harry already expecting their first royal baby? Here’s what we know.
Meghan Markle In A Tuxedo Dress
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were out of the public eye for over a month now. Traditionally, the royals spend August in Balmoral, Scotland. Meghan and Harry left their vacation early for a VIP event for Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale. This charity focuses on working with young people who are living in southern Africa and affected by HIV.
A beaming Meghan surprised and wowed in a short, black Judith & Charles tuxedo dress. The $425 garment designed by the charitable Canadian label showcased the former actress’s yoga-trimmed legs. Could she have been trying to distract onlookers from noticing a baby bump by breaking royal protocol and donning a short dress?
A pregnant Meghan Markle would be even more exciting than her daring (for a royal) dress.
Already Twitter is rife with speculation. Her month-long disappearance and her theatre appearance has royal watchers wondering whether Meghan Markle pregnant will be trending soon. If you check out the photo above or the event video below, you might notice the svelte Duchess looks a little thicker around the waist. Then again, it might just be the camera angle.
Prince Harry Wants To Be A Father
Even before Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan walked down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, Harry was ready to breed. According to ET, who spoke to royal expert and author Penny Nicholl, Prince Harry was ready for fatherhood. Nicholl was quoted as saying that her sources revealed he wants to be a father as soon as the couple married. If he got Meghan Markle pregnant, then he’s doing an excellent job as a new husband and future father!
Prince Harry lives right next to his brother Prince William and Duchess Catherine and spends a lot of time with his nephew and niece, George and Charlotte. It is reported that from the time William and Kate had Prince George, Prince Harry was eager to move forward and have his own family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex married over three months ago, so it is not so crazy to believe that they could be expecting a baby soon. Meghan is now 37, so the couple may decide that now is the best time to start a family. While Hollywood leading ladies often have babies later in life, royals tend to start families younger.

Meghan Loves Children
While it is no secret that Prince Harry wants children as soon as possible, Meghan clearly wants a family as well. She is quite devoted to the children in her life. After first meeting Kate Middleton and Prince William, Meghan was keen to meet Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
After Christmas at Sandringham, Prince Harry revealed that the couple stayed with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. He shared that he and Meghan Markle had a blast running around and playing with his nephew and niece. Meghan’s closest friend is Jessica Mulroney who has three children of her own.
The Mulroney secretly hosted the prince when Harry and Meghan Markle first began to date. He treated the kids with special fun gifts from home and often, the couple would play with them. Therefore it is no surprise that all three Mulroney children, twins Brian and John, and daughter Ivy, were in Harry and Meghan’s May wedding party.

Royal Pregnancy Style
Whether Meghan is pregnant now, or if she should become pregnant in the future, don’t expect her to appear at official functions in more comfy or loose clothing. All royal women wear the same sort of formal attire, whether pregnant or not.
Should Meghan Markle be pregnant, royal protocol decrees that she cannot wear loose fitting warmup pants. Nor can she sport tennis shoes at official events. Instead, a pregnant Meghan will continue to wear fitted dresses, often with jackets. Whether Meghan is pregnant or not, she will be expected to look professional, from hairstyle to heels.
The Duchess of Sussex will be expected to continue to wear tailored designer garments no matter how big her baby bump gets. Come back to Soap Dirt for the latest in all the royal family news.
