Naturally, for a long time, the fans have watched Meghan’s styles. Since she has been engaged and shot with Prince Harry for celebration, yes, people have kept a close eye on her wardrobe. And during the planning for Meghan’s wedding, bookmakers took bets about what designer she would wear on the big day.

The Wedding Day

This long-awaited wedding dress was, of course, beautiful and straightforward. Meghan picked a large-scale amount from the British artistic director Clare Waight Keller of the French Givenchy company. The outfit was, of course, costly. Yet quite soon, people trying to imitate the king’s wife were overwhelmed with cheaper calls.

The Meghan Markle Effect

The media sensation dubbed ‘ the Meghan Markle effect ‘ just got stronger after the wedding. For starters, in May 2018, the Duchess became the first to participate as a royal family at a party to celebrate the 70th birthday of Prince Charles. She was wearing a pink dress from Goat Fashion’s London label, and the company’s website crashed the same day.

Meet The Parents

And when Meghan was only a few weeks into her first royal wedding, royal enthusiasts realized it would be a thrilling fashion-oriented day. Celia McCorquodale’s marriage to George Woodhouse was honored. Princess Diana, the Duchess, and her new groom were on the Guest List, as the bride is Prince Harry’s cousin and his late mother’s niece. And the pair showed up holding hands, of course.

The Internet was Divided

Meghan was wrapped in a white and blue cover with a flower print and light-colored accessories. The dress came from Oscar de la Renta, a designer who had previously designed Meghan’s wedding dress, Doria Ragland. And clearly, this specific outfit was pretty, but the way the Duchess fit, the Internet was divided.

The Internet was Divided

Fashion Preference

Indeed, some people were very snarky. “Why does Meghan Markle feel like a potato sack? “One Twitter user said. One widely commented that Meghan “seems to reinvent the Gone with the Wind sequence in which Scarlett wears an outdated curtains dress. [But] Meghan also needed to deal for the sofa at Marks & Spencer.

Fashion Preference

Off the Peg

However, some demanded a British royal rule to condemn fashion preference. “It’s not meant to suit the ‘ off the peg ‘ Oscar de la Renta top. But this dress is not fit for a British wedding in high society. It’s just too informal, “an irritated Twitter user said. “British high society has certain mores, including a wedding look,”

Off the Peg

Follow the Rules

But if you wait for Meghan to stick to the norm of beauty, you search in the wrong place. The Duchess just wants to follow the rules. Indeed, she carried a photograph of her engagement – gasp! – a sheer dress. Of course, there was a knot inside to protect the integrity of Meghan, but the traditional part of the universe of royal style was surprised.

Follow the Rules

Preferred by Many

Meghan dress, though, was preferred by many. For starters, in June 2018, Harper’s journal, Bazaar, wrote that “while the gown looked slightly baggy on the Duchess, the floaty fabric, and her matching fascinator, created the perfect outfit for the summer nuptials.” And the website Fashionista stated that Meghan had looked “ethereal and angel-like.”

Is Meghan Pregnant?

But there’s one significant issue aside from the conversation of fashion: Meghan was wearing such a loose dress when she was pregnant? Predictably, people had asked when the two of them were going to launch the family after Meghan married Prince Harry. So, even before their wedding did the couple begin to conceive?

Is Meghan Pregnant?

False Rumors

Keep in mind, nearly every day, the papers appeared to have a different article on “Meghan is pregnant.” The National Enquirers, for example, revealed in June 2018 that the couple would have twins, were in a clinic covertly concerned about the fertility of the pair and that the Queen was “appalled.”

False Rumors

Debunking Rumors

However, a month after wearing the maxi dress, Meghan shut those reports herself down. She engaged in a party at the British Ambassador’s Dublin Residence in Ireland on July 10, 2018, and drank champagne. While one glass may not harm a baby, the Duchess’ drink when pregnant is still highly unlikely.

Debunking Rumors

Starting a Family Soon

Everyone believed, though, that a Royal baby will be with her at some stage as the first child for Harry and Meghan. For starters, in an interview in November 2017 announcing the couple’s engagement, Harry told the BBC that, “eventually, one step at a time, [we’ll] start a family soon.”

Starting a Family Soon

A New Life

As to the millions who saw the wedding, it was indeed a happy moment for Harry and Meghan. Harry smiled at Meghan happily as she thought of how marriage “is given as the foundation of family life in which children are born and nurtured.”

Father of the Bride

Then there was an issue, Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father. And what he has to tell. “When she met Harry and spoke about how much she loves him… there’s got to be a child in the making there soon,” Thomas, who was a lightning rod for criticism, said on the Good Morning Britain show in June 2018 that Meghan “wanted children for a long time.”

Rules for Giving Birth

The Sun released some rules that Meghan should follow. If she has been pregnant in the media, both in Britain and internationally, the baby must not be revealed until he was born. They must inform the Queen about his birth before they leave the country, except if necessary.

Rules for Giving Birth

Years of Tradition

Such rules are simply the continuation of years of tradition. Royals also don’t want to tell the public about the identity of the incoming baby in advance. After all, the royal family has been around longer than sonograms. Prince William and Kate Middleton allegedly opted not to learn their children’s gender beforehand.

Years of Tradition

The Queen First

It is always the Queen who will know first when they got pregnant. She outranks everybody as the monarch, anyway. When Prince George was conceived, Prince William reportedly called for her on an encrypted phone, but the public will soon be hearing the story. After the duty was fulfilled, Kate’s parents will be informed.

The Queen First

The Royal Baby

Royal baby reports hit a fever peak before August 2018. The Sun appeared to speak like an expert on what Meghan was pregnant with. “The one thing that might be interesting is her hair,” said etiquette specialist Myka Meier in the Fabulous Section of the paper. “We don’t know what she does to treat her hair now, but she likely uses a keratin or a Brazilian treatment to straighten it.”

The Royal Baby

A Brazilian Treatment

Likewise, Meghan announced in 2011 that she is using Brazilian treatment.“My mom is black, and my dad is Dutch and Irish, so the texture of my hair is densely curly,” she clarified. “I’ve been getting Brazilian blowouts for a couple of years.” So how would that be a blessing when it comes to pregnancy?

A Brazilian Treatment

No More Treatments

Well, formaldehyde, which is a major no, also implies these treatments if you have a baby. “I think we’ll see [Meghan] wearing more of a bun when that happens, which could be a tell-tale sign she is pregnant as she’ll no longer be able to use those chemicals that are often used for that glossy look,” Meier said.

No More Treatments

Meghan is Pregnant!

And the long-awaited news arrived on October 15, 2018, one month later: “Meghan became pregnant. “The Royal Alights The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are happy to reveal to Kensington Palace that Sussex The Duchess expected a baby in Spring 2019.” The announcement is released on the social media platform.

Meghan is Pregnant!

It is Confirmed!

The statement continued, “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated 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 this happy news with the public.” Afterward, other politicians and public figures in the mainstream media submitted their congratulations.

It is Confirmed!

Maternity Style

Also, the maternity style of Meghan quickly became the town’s talk. In reality, during that time of her life, she revealed some of her most famous looks. A particular preference seemed to be blue dresses. This included a navy gown named Antonio Berardi, a glamorous Givenchy pattern dress, and a brightly colored style called the Beard Cary Dress.

A Royal Baby Boy

Then on May 6, 2019, the royal baby became bluer in showing. This was a boy, and the name Archie Harrison Mounttatten-Windsor was granted to him by his mother. In both Britain and America, landmarks were enlightened to celebrate: the London Eye bathed in red, white, and blue, while Niagara Falls only turned blue.

Bi-Racial

A few days after the birth, Meghan and Harry had a photoshoot of their baby out for the world. Meghan, of course, consciously selected her outfit for the event. She modeled a Grace Wales-Bonner dress, and Oprah magazine reported, “For her first official photo as a new mom, Markle chose a designer who – just like her and now, the royal baby – is also bi-racial.”

Bi-Racial

Fashion to Connect

In reality, Meghan seems quite sure that she uses fashion to relay messages to the world. For starters, it is assumed that the outfit she wore during her Africa tour was a tribute to the idea of sustainable fashion and her host continent. It was a “Dalisto” May Miko dress with local fabrics, made in Malawi.

Fashion to Connect

Modified Herself

So others may think that Meghan should have delivered that more intimate message in Africa in another outfit. Meghan modified herself to the crowd she had already seen on the first day of the show, her blue Veronica Beard top, which she wore when with Archie while pregnant.

Modified Herself

A Second Child?

The hype didn’t take long to continue to grow. Royal viewers were personally convinced that Meghan hinted at a second child. “I’m gonna call it now, Meghan Markle is pregnant again and due around May next year again,” an observation posted on Twitter. And they weren’t the first ones to play the social network speculation position.

A Second Child?

Elegant Blue Dress

The dress itself was seen as the right choice for Meghan to take on tour. On the What Meghan Wore website, which monitors fashion choices from the Duchess, a commenter wrote “I loved the Veronica Beard dress when she first wore it, and I like it again now. I think it is casually elegant, and the blue with Meghan’s coloring is just gorgeous!”

Baby Number 2?

The next day, when Meghan again sported a dress she had previously used as maternity wear, rumors that Meghan was pregnant for the second time spiked further. This time, the outfit was an elegant maxi striped brown and olive dress, styled by Australian couturier Martin Grant.

Baby Number 2?

Rumors have it.

She’d just announced her pregnancy to the public the last time the world had seen Meghan in the maxi dress and was embarking on a tour of Australia. She was then observed carrying in her dress her new baby bump while walking. In the latest images, however, there was no baby bump – so was there any chance she’d just discovered a new pregnancy?

Rumors have it.

Re-wearing Clothes

Tamara Abraham, The Daily Telegraph’s fashion editor, wrote in the newspaper that she did not think this was the case, and that Meghan was just recycling. “The Duchess is re-wearing clothes that she last wore while expecting son Archie and in doing so, she’s showing us that shopping for ‘maternity wear’ isn’t what was,” Abraham said.

Re-wearing Clothes

Maternity Clothes in Style

“It’s no longer a question of buying specially made or XXL garments that serve no purpose once the baby is born,” continued Abraham. “Instead, Meghan is proving it’s possible to find looks that both accommodate a growing bump and later be a working mum’s wardrobe heroes.”

Adding another Family Member

And yet people still seem convinced that Meghan will have another baby sooner rather than later, despite setting the dresses aside for the moment. Yes, bookmaker Alex Apati from Ladbrokes told the Daily Mail in September 2019 that Meghan will give birth to a second baby in a few years, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex making it no secret they’re keen to add to their family.”

Adding another Family Member

2020 Baby

Apati continued, “Meghan might have another baby by the end of 2020, but a flurry of bets around the country has forced us to cut odds to 8/11 now, with punters convinced a second baby announcement would come sooner.” And Meghan’s fashion choices indeed lead to that assumption.

2020 Baby

No Baby Plans Yet

Although Meghan and Harry may not be out of character soon to expand their family, royal fans will rely on outside sources to know more about the intentions of the couple. Journalist and royal-scoop-getter champion Katie Nicholl spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the future of the Sussexes in July 2019 for instance.

No Baby Plans Yet

It’s all for Archie

Nicholl said the Duke and Duchess “absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement – a second pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry – sometime next year. But, for the moment, the focus is obviously on Archie.”After all, the new baby is only less than a year old.

It’s all for Archie

A little Older

“I think at the moment, they’re focusing on Archie,” Nicholl said. “But I know they plan to have more than one child.” So when Archie is a little older, take a closer look at the dresses of his mother – you never know what the Duchess could cleverly suggest through her choices of fashion.

A little Older

The Second Wedding Dress

The Duchess has had more statement pieces over her period as a royal but one we simply cannot forget and is not often discussed is her second wedding dress. The first had opinions flowing but may forget the second Stella McCartney bateau neckline piece which was absolutely breathtaking. The backless, halterneck gown was just lovely and different from the usual royal attire which again provokes the freshness she has brought.

Joining With Givenchy

Markle joined with Givenchy and has since displayed an array of breathtaking looks. This Audrey Hepburn inspired dress was worn for the Royal Air Force’s 100th-anniversary celebration. The navy fit-and-flare, boatneck neckline is similar to that of the one Hepburn wore in Sabrina.
