Ever since Meghan Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry earlier this year, royal fans have been eagerly awaiting news that the Duchess of Sussex is pregnant with the couple’s first child. But when 37-year-old Meghan stepped out with Harry, 33, at the 100 Days of Peace Concert in London on Sept. 6, pregnancy rumors hit an all-time high — and this time, it was because of Meg’s outfit!
For the outing, Meghan looked gorgeous in a royal blue Jason Wu dress, a pair of blue satin pumps, and a chic black clutch and, as she walked into the event, the Duchess’ frock billowed a bit around her midsection prompting people to speculate that she may be expecting. “I have a feeling Meghan Markle is pregnant,” one person wrote on Twitter with another similarly adding, “Sooo pregnant or not?”
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time that Meghan possibly being pregnant has made headlines. Just last month, baby rumors swirled when Harry sold his sports car. Yes, seriously!
At the time, people wondered if the royal was selling his fancy smaller vehicle because the duo was planning on expanding their family (how cute would they look in a minivan?). Harry’s 2017 Audi RS6 Avant — which he’d had for just a year — was previously listed on Auto Trader by the dealership Overton Prestige in the UK.
The dealership released a statement about the vehicle, which was listed for close to $9,500. “Due to data protection we can’t confirm who sold the vehicle but we are completely satisfied that this car was used personally by Prince Harry over the course of the last year,” they said.
Erin Baker, the editorial director at Auto Trader, also opened up about the matter. “This is a smashing car perfectly suited to any aspiring royal. The Audi RS6 Avant is one of the fastest estate cars on the market doing 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, and it has a roaring exhaust to excite any petrol head. The car boasts a 17 reg and low mileage, so it begs the questions why is the Prince selling so soon?” she asked.
Baker added, “Maybe he’s on the market for a bigger family car, in which case we’d recommend a Skoda Superb, which won the best family car in our recent New Car Awards, or maybe he’s after an electric car, having driven Meghan away after their wedding in an electric Jag?” She joked, “No corgi hairs have been found on the honeycomb-stitched valcona leather interiors!”
Harry selling his car isn’t the only pregnancy clue the royal couple has given fans. Photos of the brunette beauty before the royal wedding at the UK trials for the Invictus Games featured what appeared to be a growing belly outside of her forest green coat, but perhaps those pics were taken after lunch (yes, Meghan likely gets a “food belly” just like us!). Better yet, maybe the wind just blew her shirt in the wrong direction because at Harry and Meghan’s nuptials, there was no baby bump to be found on the new Duchess of Sussex.

That said, Meghan sadly has yet to confirm she’s expecting, but now that she and Harry are officially husband and wife, we’d like to think they will soon have a big announcement for us.
Luckily for us, though, they’ve allegedly already been trying for baby No. 1! “They actually stopped using protection over a month ago, although they abstained from sex in the weeks leading up to the wedding,” a source previously told Hollywood Life. “They are both excited about having children as soon as possible.”
But don’t worry, Harry and Meghan will be parents before we know it, apparently. Sources previously said that Harry, particularly, was “very keen to start a family pretty soon after the royal wedding,” royal expert Katie Nicholl, who wrote Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “He’s made no secret about wanting children.” Well, it’s now “pretty soon” after the royal wedding, Harry!
Harry previously opened up about wanting kids before he even met Meghan. “I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” he said in 2012. “I’m waiting to find the right person. Someone who is willing to take on the job.”
Fortunately for the red-headed royal, he found Meghan, who also loves kids. “Meghan is very doting with children,” Nicholl added. “She is very maternal and she was thrilled to meet George and Charlotte. I think one of the lovely things, anecdotes that I discovered [while writing] the book was, it was actually a moment involving children when Meghan really fell for Prince Harry.”
Meghan’s former friend and agent, Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, also revealed that Meghan once told her she wants to be a mom someday. “She said to me, ‘I would absolutely love to have children, and I can’t wait to be a mother,'” Gina said of their 2016 conversation in the Cayman Islands, which took place before Meghan was with Harry.
Harry and Meghan have even admitted to the public before that they want to have kids during their official interview after getting engaged. “Children?” the interviewer asked Meghan and Harry (they couldn’t contain their smiles after). Harry then jokingly replied, “Not currently, no,” before getting more serious. “No, of course, you know, I think one step at a time,” he continued. “Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future.” They proved their love for children even more when they made their entire bridal party consist of all the little kids who mean the most to them. We just can’t wait for them to announce their pregnancy one day!
