When the world was let in on the joyful news of a new Royal baby on its way, we were led to believe that it would be in April or May. The Palace said the Duchess [Meghan] had already completed her 12-week scan so many of us assumed that meant that she was just three months pregnant.
But now, less than one month after the official announcement of ‘Baby Sussex’ we have good reason to question what we were led to believe at the time.
During Harry and Meghan’s historic 16-day journey to the Land Down Under, each passing day seemed to reveal a little bit more growth in Meghan’s baby bump. It caused many of us to wonder how in the world she could have gone from flat tummy to a burgeoning belly in just a matter of days.
Now that the couple is back home, and making their first official appearance since the trip, we catch a glimpse of the adorable momma-to-be and we can’t help but wonder how far along she REALLY is!
"Matching in navy blue, the parents-to-be joined Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and other members of the royal family for the ceremony marking 100 years since the end of World War l. The Royal Fab Four also reunited, as Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton returned to the venue where they married in 2011." (People)
Most first time moms, and ones who are as fit as the Duchess is, usually manage to retain their figures for several months. Without actually ‘showing until the fifth or sixth month. One look at Meghan’s expanding waistline tells the story of a much farther along pregnancy that we were led to believe.
Especially standing next to the newly-svelte mother of three, Kate Middleton. Meghan’s high-waisted, belted, ebony-colored suit did nothing to hide the true dimensions of the growing prince or princess.
In fact, I would venture a guess that the Duchess of Sussex may be closer to six months pregnant than the three-to-four months we first thought.
If so, then that means she and Harry would have conceived right about the time of their wedding on May 19th. And if the baby ends up arriving in February, instead of the widely-believed April, then we know that the couple was VERY successful in starting their family right away.
Either way, we wish the happy couple all the best in the upcoming addition to their royal family. And we can't wait to meet this much-wanted and highly-anticipated little prince or princess.
