Is Meghan Markle Giving us a Clue She’s Pregnant? It’s All in the Hair

There has been much speculation in recent weeks that Meghan Markle is expecting. Royal watchers are predicting that the Duchess of Sussex is with child and the telltale sign is the way she has been styling her hair at recent functions.

The 37-year-old Duchess has always opted for her favored styles of a low bun or glossy waves. These two styles’s have been coined as her signature styles but Markle gave royal followers fuel to speculate in recent weeks when she attended multiple events wearing her hair down and straight.

This theory may seem ludicrous but in royal history, this theory hold’s up as true. The Duchess of Sussex sister-in-law Kate Middleton, 36, has a history of changing up her look shortly before making an announcement she is expecting.

Back in September 2017 reporter, Kate Proctor brought light to this theory shortly after Prince William and Kate Middleton announced they were expecting their third child.

Pattern is Duchess of Cambridge changes her hairstyle, people concentrate on her head, then announces pregnancy. My gfs called this wks ago!” the journalist tweeted at the time.

Kate debuted a new do in July 2017, two month before announcing her third pregnancy. The Duchess of Cambridge sported a shorter bob style that was marked the ‘Kob’ a combination of ‘Kate’ and ‘Bob.’

Back in 2012 before announcing her first pregnancy Kate made an extreme hair change when she debuted bangs that made headlines around the world.

Many ask what is the thought process behind this theory? Royal analysts suggest that by making a noticeable hair change takes the focus away from her body and brings all attention to the Duchess’ face. It’s less likely to bring attention to a growing bump before the palace is ready to make the official announcement.

Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle have not made an official announcement that they are expecting but the pair has been transparent that they do want children. In an interview in November, Harry said when asked about children, “Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future.”

Prince William Reveals Princess Charlotte and Prince George’s Favorite Bedtime Story

Ever wonder what Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince George‘s beloved bedtime story are? The Duke of Cambridge, 36, revealed that The Gruffalo is a “big hit” with his two eldest kids.

While meeting the book’s author at a conservation event held at Kensington Palace on Monday Prince William told the writer, “I know who you are.”

The Duke told the children’s book author Julia Donaldson and illustrator for the book Axel Scheffler that it’s one of George’s and Charlotte’s most-liked stories.

Prince William also joked that his son George, 5, would be “keeping an eye” on the model rhino the author and illustrator decorated as part of an art installation to raise awareness for the dissipating rhino population that has occurred over the years due to poaching.

After meeting Donaldson, 69, and Scheffler, 61, William admitted to them, “I know who you are. It’s a big hit in our household.”

The book that was first published in 1999 tells the story of a mouse who takes a stroll in the enchanted forest and comes across several creatures that want to eat him. Along the way, the mouse meets a Gruffalo, a hybrid of a bear and buffalo.

William spoke about the duo’s decorated rhino they created giving praise, “‘It’s amazing, I love it. You can tell it’s you guys. It’s the eyes of the animals I think, you can always tell the eyes.’

Donaldson and Scheffler were asked to decorate 1 of 21 model rhino’s that were displayed at the event on behalf of the conservation organization Tusk. William has been a royal patron of the conservation group since 2005, and it was one of the first charities that he adopted.

Tusk works with Africa’s conservations to protect their endangered wildlife and fight against poaching. This has been a topic near and dear to William who has commissioned to stop illegal wildlife trade under the umbrella of his United for Wildlife coalition.

William was grateful to Donaldson and Scheffler for taking part in bringing awareness to the world’s endangered animals that are suffering. He thanked them for helping teach the younger generations about the importance of keeping our wildlife safe. “We need the young generations to really understand,” William said.
