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.”
