Meghan Markle pregnant: Duchess could be further along than we all thought
Meghan Markle announced news of her pregnancy last week, but a major slip up has revealed the Duchess could be four months pregnant.
Meghan and Harry are now on their official 16-day visit to Australia, and will visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand as part of their royal tour.
On Tuesday, the royals stopped by Sydney’s Admiralty House for a royal engagement where Meghan met Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins.
Ms Higgins posted a photo of her and Meghan on Instagram, and spoke about how “beautiful” the Duchess looked, and how it was an “honour” to meet Meghan and Harry.
However, her post raised eyebrows after she said Meghan was four months pregnant.
Ms Hissings said on Instagram: “What an honour to meet the beautiful Duchess today! She was such a sweetheart.
“I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant! What a trooper.
“Prince Harry was gorgeous too, a real charmer. He squeezed Luna’s legs and said ‘who’s this little cutie?’ Looking forward to telling Luna she slept through it all one day.”
On Monday, Kensington Palace announced Meghan and Harry will be expecting a baby by spring next year, however, it is unclear which month the royal baby will be born
In a statement, the Palace said: “Their Royal Highnesses are very pleased to announce the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in Spring 2019.
“Their Royal Highnesses very much appreciate all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share their happy news.”
If Meghan is 4 months pregnant, the baby is likely to be born in April, sharing the same birth month as Prince Louis and the Queen.
On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed at the regional city Dubbo in New South Wales as part of their 16-day tour of the region.
The royals toured the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which provides vital health services to rural and remote communities in Australia.
Meghan and Harry were greeted by hundreds of excited school children, who were filled with joy upon seeing the royals descended from their Royal Australian Airforce aeroplane.
The royal couple were caught in the rain, but Meghan saved the day after she offered Harry an umbrella while he gave his speech to members of the public.
As Meghan stood by his side, Harry joked: “I’ve got my wife” as the Duchess hovered over him with shelter.
Speaking at Dubbo’s Victoria Park, Harry said: Sixty-four-years-ago my grandparents, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were right here visiting all of you. It’s a great pleasure to be able to visit this area now and be able to report back how much life has changed in the Great Western plains region since then.”
“Coming here brings back memories of 2003 when I spent some time on a small 16,000 hectare property in Roma in Queensland chasing cows through the bush… and it was great – I perfected the great Aussie salute. The greatest part about visiting country Australia is the people.
“You are the salt to of the earth, honest, hardworking and as tough as they come. That resilience, sense of humour and commitment to the land are what make you unique.
“You are the backbone of this country.”
Meghan and Harry will attend several royal engagements over the next few days, with plans to visit a local community initiative and travel on an iconic Melbourne tram to South Melbourne beach on Thursday.
