It all makes sense!
Meghan Markle’s day was about as ‘Princessy’ as they come yesterday, attending multiple royal events, with multiple designer outfit changes.
From the Commonwealth Day service with the rest of the Fab Four to her visit to London Embassy, she was one busy Duchess.
Yes, Meghan had clearly opted out of wearing her sparkler of a rock, instead wearing only her simple Welsh gold wedding ring.
Judging by the fact that her engagement ring hasn’t been missing since Harry got down on one knee, the internet unsurprisingly started to speculate, with multiple people jumping to the Duchess of Sussex’s defence.
‘Like many women in their third trimester, (myself included) sometimes towards the end that engagement ring and wedding band just won’t fit!’ A fan posted to Twitter, explaining how fingers often swell up during pregnancy. ‘It was such a pleasure being able to get them on again about a month postpartum!’
Other fans were quick to point out that Kate Middleton also took her engagement ring off during the final stages of pregnancy, so it’s nothing out of the ordinary.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be expecting their royal baby in April.
