    Kensington Palace announced this morning that Meghan Markle is pregnant with her and Prince Harry’s first child.

    The baby, who will arrive in the spring, will be seventh in line to the throne and first cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

    At the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on Friday, there was some speculation that Meghan’s outfit, a navy coat, was concealing a baby bump. And when she arrived in Sydney a few days later for the start of her and Harry’s royal tour, her outfit choice only added fuel to the fire.

    Upon her arrival, the Duchess of Sussex was seen carrying two purple folders that matched the trim of her coat. It’s well known that Meghan likes to do her homework and be well prepared for royal engagements, let alone a jam-packed royal tour full of them.

    However, some people pointed out that folders are a pretty unusual thing to be carrying after a long haul flight – and could potentially be disguising a baby bump.

    We guess it no longer matters now that the cat is well and truly out of the bag. In other news, we reckon sales of purple folders are about to skyrocket. Next big AW18 accessory, anyone?

    Congratulations again to Meghan and Harry on their lovely news!
