Expert reveals tell-tale pregnancy sign from Meghan Markle

Forget the oversized handbag over the belly or baggy dress to hide her shape, an expert claims there’s one unmissable sign we’ll see when Meghan Markle falls pregnant.

As speculation grows that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are trying for a baby now that the fuss surrounding their May wedding is behind them, the Duchess of Sussex’s appearance could be the dead giveaway – but not in the way you expect.

According to etiquette expert Myka Meier, what Meghan does with her hair could be the real sign she and Harry are expecting.

The 37-year-old has spoken out in the past about getting Brazilian blowouts to smooth her naturally curly hair, a result of her mixed-race heritage.

“My mum is black and my dad is Dutch and Irish, so the texture of my hair is densely curly. I’ve been getting Brazilian blowouts for a couple of years,” she said in an interview with Marie Claire in 2011.

Myka reveals eager royal watchers should keep a close eye on Meghan’s locks as a sign a baby could be on the way.

“As soon as she gets pregnant she will no longer be able to use those same products, which could be very interesting,” Myka told Fabulous.

“I use the same products because I am quarter African and have very curly, frizzy hair and when I got pregnant I had to stop using all of those.”

Once fond of wearing her hair long and loose, the duchess has been showing off a much more slicked back look of buns and ponytails lately.

It’s been speculated Meghan will be forced to give up her beloved chemical treatments if she does fall pregnant.

“I think we’ll see her 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 stringent chemicals that are often used for that beautiful glossy look,” says Myka.

On various occasions, both Harry and Meghan have expressed their wish to start a family soon. However the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly put any baby plans on hold for one simple reason: travel.

The newlyweds are set to embark on a lengthy royal tour in October to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand.

As noted by The Express, the duchess will very likely want to “avoid all the side affects that come with travelling while pregnant” on the upcoming royal tour.
