    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days, by now you’ll have heard that Meghan Markle is pregnant with her first child.

    Before the news had even been announced, royal fans thought this outfit detail confirmed Meghan’s pregnancy when she and Harry first arrived in Sydney.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have carried out their first day of official engagements, with Meghan’s small but growing baby bump already clearly visible.

    Harry and Meghan reportedly shared their exciting news with the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, while attending the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

    But apparently it’s thought that Meghan actually shared her news with someone else a couple of months ago, before the royal family.

    Us Weekly reports that the duchess shared news of her pregnancy with her best friend Jessica Mulroney when she visited Toronto in August earlier this year.

    Jessica and her husband Ben have in fact just arrived in Australia, as they’ll be joining Meghan and Harry for part of their tour in an unofficial capacity.

    It’s not clear whether their three children Brian, John and Ivy – who were page boys and bridesmaid at the royal wedding – have joined them for the trip.
