The royal Duchess’ bump seems to have popped overnight!

Is Duchess Meghan actually 4-5mths pregnant and just hiding it well? Some fans think YES while others say the first pregnancy is always hard to pick.

What do you think? Is it just her outfit that showed off the bump more than usual? Some are even hinting at a shot gun wedding!

With Missy Higgins revealing the Duchess is actually four months pregnant we are all beginning to wonder how far along she really is…. Or did Meghan just POP like often happens in pregnancy.

One explanation however according to an expert is that baby bumps are often bigger at night.

Birth doula Susannah Birch, explains that ab muscles also play a role.

‘[A]t night time, your abdominal muscles are tired from holding your bump [and they] loosen as they grow more tired, which allows your bump to sit out further and appear larger,’ Birch told Trimester Talk.

‘When you go to sleep, your muscles get a chance to rest and recuperate so they’re refreshed and ready to maintain your bump’s position when you wake.’

Comments include:

“I had to announce my pregnancy at 8 weeks I was that big (first baby)! Some people just show earlier. And if it was a shotgun wedding who cares – it’s 2018 people!”

“The outfit she has on makes her look bigger, why so many negative opinions all the time.”

“She’s only tiny so she will obviously show soon enough. Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different and this is very possible with her tiny frame. They were married many months ago…”

“All her other outfits obviously did a good job of hiding her bump. Coats and patterns but what do you expect, she’s pregnant and now it shows. I’m sure they waited for quite a while before telling family to get past the first few months as she’s older.”

  • Who cares, it will arrive in due course.


  • People should be more thoughtful of other peoples’ feelings and less critical in public


  • The royals are renowned for not letting the public know exact dates for babies births. To avoid the media scrum and unwanted attention from the public. Only ones who need to know exact dates are Meghan and Harry


  • It’s nice that they have been able to come out and share the news whilst visiting Australia.


  • Hi Megan,
    here is a baby life hack for you!
    When you are feeding your boobs will get very sore pop a couple of newborn nappies in the freezer the gel freezes and you can use them to soothe sore feeding boobs they will stay cool for ages and they are water proof so if you need to pop them in your bra they wont leak! and they are re freezable if you need!
    forget cabbage leaves this trick really helps and comes from a mum of 3 that also works in Adelaide’s biggest birthing hospital! Deb


  • Some show more than others. Anyway what does it matter how far along she is. The public will know as soon as the new Prince or Princess arrives.


  • Not everyone shows for my first pregnancy I was still able to wear and do up my jeans, they were the same one I worn when I found out I was pregnant…she may have just popped…..and we now know she is due April/May next year.


  • maybe bub spends most time sitting to her back, my last pregnancy I didn’t show much at all


  • Showing not showing everybody is different in how they hold the baby. With number three people were shocked to see me holding a baby and that it was mine after I had him. I was not showing much. Megan is small and would look more along, Who really cares how far she is, as long as it is healthy.


  • Meghan has a very small frame so she will show early. Every pregnancy is different & we all carry differently, each of mine were different so we shouldn’t judge without having the truth. I doubt that the Royals would risk another scandal by having a baby outside of marriage, they have already had so much drama in the past & it damages their image.
    Who cares anyway, only the gossips with too much time to waste on it. I am glad Meghan & Harry will have the chance to create a family, I think they will make great parents & raise their children with a lot of love.


  • It always changes, often the clothes you wear and even the position that the baby is in can make you look bigger


  • who cares if Megan is further on or not. Think it is wonderful time for the couple andthey are delighting lots of us.Thank goodness times have change for the better in the Royal Family, who were bred to be stuffy and remote. A new era and a new family of Royals. It took me back to Fergie and Diana who put the wheels in motion for change. Theres were at a cost never want to see again.. I am happy for Harry and Megan and who knos it might be twins I just had that feeling


  • Who cares how far along she is and if she’s trying to hide it. I knew someone who didn’t show until she was about 8 months pregnant. As long as she’s healthy and happy (which we can see in the photo) that’s all that matters.

    • Exactly! Every pregnancy is different and it just does not matter!!


  • She looks amazing, just glowing!


  • jackiew like most pregnancies im sure they are going to wait till she is over the danger zone before announcing, hence why she looks bigger than we thought.
