Could it be True? Is Meghan Markle Pregnant?

There is quite a buzz about the newest member of the Royal Family, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. The 37-year old who married Prince Harry, 33, on May 19, 2018, appeared side-by-side at the 100 Days of Peace concert in London on Thursday, September 6. The concert commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Meghan, always glamorous, wore a sleeveless royal blue Jason Wu sheath dress that had pleats in the front where she could easily hide a baby bump. Of course, the rest of her looked absolutely radiant. With her shiny black hair parted on the side and worn long and flowing, the Duchess wore gorgeous matching royal blue sparkly heels and carried a diminutive black clutch.

With the handsome Prince Harry by her side, wearing a dashing bespoke navy suit, the couple held hands and Harry was spotted sweetly putting his hand on Meghan’s lower back throughout the evening.

The Duke and Duchess have always been very open about wanting kids. During various interviews when he was a bachelor, Harry expressed his desire for a family but often said he was just waiting for the right person to do the job!

The former actress and Suits star also openly talked with the press about having children. In 2015, she reported that she would love to have a daughter someday.

Since their fabulous wedding in May, Meghan and Harry have been seen traveling quite a bit. They are about to embark on their first royal tour, which will start in Sydney, Australia toward the end of October to open the Invictus Games. From there, the couple plans to visit other Commonwealth nations, including New Zealand, Fiji, and the Kingdom of Tonga.

With this extensive travel schedule, there are sure to be many photo opportunities for the couple and perhaps all of us will be able to see Meghan’s growing bump! We certainly hope so!

Kate Middleton: “It Takes A Whole Community To Help Raise A Child”

Expectant mum Kate Middleton looked simply radiant in a plum colored dress by Goat accessorized with a poppy brooch on Wednesday (November 8). The Duchess of Cambridge, 35, spoke at the opening of the annual School Leaders Forum run by one of her charity’s Place2Be in London, England. During her speech, she said that “it takes a whole community to help raise a child.”

After Kate’s speech, Kensington Palace shared a snapshot and quote via Instagram.

“The Duchess of Cambridge opened the Place2Be School School Leaders Forum, saying: ‘As a mother just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child. Whether we are school leaders, teachers, support staff or parents – we’re all in this together. We are all working to give children the emotional strength they need to face their futures and thrive.’ ” read the caption.

The night before, the mum-to-be stepped out for a charity gala held at Kensington Palace donning a black lace gown by Diane von Furstenburg.

After her appearance, Kensington Palace posted a photo and message via Instagram.

“This evening The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) attended the charity’s Gala Dinner held at the Orangery in Kensington Palace. AFNCCF campaigns for a step change in children’s mental health and believes in the importance of early intervention and working with whole families, which can make a huge difference for those in vulnerable situations. The Gala Dinner was also an opportunity for AFNCCF to update guests on the building of their new Centre of Excellence,” read the caption.

Last month, Kate joined husband Prince William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry at the Coach Core graduation ceremony for more than 150 Coach Core apprentices at The London Stadium. At the event, the Duchess looked beautiful in a blue double-breasted Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini blazer, paired with a pair of black pants, black suede booties with chunky heels and Kiki McDonough laurel leaf earrings.

Kate Middleton On Maternal Mental Health

Ahead of Mother’s Day in the U.K., Kate Middleton – who is mum to Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 22 months, with Prince William – delivered a powerful speech at the launch of the Out of the Blue film series in London on Thursday (March 23). The films raise awareness of maternal mental health conditions such as postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety.

“Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience. However, at times it has also been a huge challenge — even for me who has support at home that most mothers do not,” the Duchess of Cambridge, 35, said.

“Nothing can really prepare you for you the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother,” she continued. “It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love and worry, all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost.”

The mum-of-two went on to say there is no “rule book” or “right or wrong” when it comes to motherhood.

“You just have to make it up and do the very best you can to care for your family. For many mothers, myself included, this can, at times lead to lack of confidence and feelings of ignorance,” she shared. “Sadly, for some mothers, this experience can be made so much harder due to challenges with their own mental health.”

The Duchess of Cambridge encouraged mothers to shatter the shame and reach out for support.

“[It] should not be seen as a sign of weakness,” the Duchess said of seeking help. “Mothers take on an overwhelming responsibility of caring for their families. Their role is vital in providing unconditional love, care and support at home, particularly in the early years of a child’s development. We therefore should do everything we can to support and value their hard work.”
