The Queen Has Apparently Banned Meghan Markle From Doing This

When Meghan Markle married into the British royal family, it should have been the start of a happy new life for the former actress. But it’s rumored that the Suits star’s behavior since becoming the Duchess of Sussex hasn’t sat well with other family members. It’s been said that her conduct may have even created a rift between Princes William and Harry. And the Queen has allegedly taken drastic action against Meghan: according to reports, the monarch has banned her from wearing her jewelry.

But as the royal family is built on rank, tradition and protocol, it’s perhaps not surprising that the Queen would make such a choice. In any case, rules are followed to the letter when the monarch is around; whenever she comes into or leaves a room, for example, everyone else in the vicinity is expected to stand up. And while this may all sound a little archaic, it’s broadly what life as a royal is like.

That’s not all, either. In fact, there are lots of rules that have been laid down both by the Queen and by those monarchs who came before her. For example, not only do potential marriages in the family need the nod from Her Majesty, but also apparently the proposed wedding dresses of any royal brides. It’s said, too, that the Queen must be the first person to be informed of the delivery of a new baby within the clan.

Needless to say, the prospect of all these strictures sounds daunting – and perhaps Meghan started to feel that way after marrying Harry. Then, of course, there are the duchess’ own expectations. In November 2018 an alleged royal source told The Sun, “Meghan can be difficult. She has very high standards and is used to working in a Hollywood environment.”

Plus, a rift between Meghan Markle and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton is believed to have arisen in the run-up to Meghan’s marriage to Harry in May 2018. It’s alleged that during a wedding dress fitting for Princess Charlotte, relations reportedly became so fraught that Kate ultimately left weeping.

Yes, according to a source within the palace, Meghan had become so frustrated on that occasion that Kate had started to cry. The insider pointed out, though, that at the time Kate had only recently delivered her youngest child – and any mother will know how stressful that post-partum period can be.

Then, of course, Meghan herself became pregnant not long after the wedding. In October 2018 – just before Harry and Meghan embarked on a tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga – Kensington Palace announced that the duchess was with child. And the rest of the royals, the statement read, were “delighted” at the prospect of the new arrival.

ADVERTISEMENT

Off the back of this wonderful news, though, were rumors that William and Harry had fallen out. And according to an individual who spoke to Vanity Fair in November 2018, the blame lay firmly with the two princes rather than with their spouses. The source said, “Kate and Meghan are very different people, and they don’t have a lot in common, but they have made an effort to get along. Any issues are between the brothers.”

ADVERTISEMENT

This may have been saddening news to many people – especially given everything that the princes had been through together. In 1997, when William and Harry were 15 and 12 years old, respectively, they had lost their mother, Princess Diana. And the brothers famously followed behind her coffin in the lead-up to the funeral – an event that was watched by hundreds of millions globally.

ADVERTISEMENT

According to the Vanity Fair source, however, the relationship that Harry had with Meghan – along with the couple’s decision to move house – had changed things between the brothers. The anonymous individual said, “Two years ago, the idea of Harry leaving Kensington Palace was unthinkable, but a lot has changed. He wants to be his own person – not in William’s shadow.”

ADVERTISEMENT

And in December 2018, an palace insider spoke to The Sun to claim that Kate and Meghan had fought after the Duchess of Sussex had been impolite towards royal staffers. Nevertheless, that person added, “It’s a tricky situation, but it was a one-off. And [Kate and Meghan] are determined to maintain a positive relationship – even though they are obviously very different in their approach.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Still, in April 2019 there was yet another twist to the tale – and it apparently involved the royal jewels. Naturally, the British royal family owns many important and incredibly expensive pieces of jewelry. Some of these had once belonged to the late Princess Diana, and she had specifically left certain items for the future wives of her sons.

ADVERTISEMENT

In fact, Kate’s engagement ring had actually once belonged to Diana. After their mother’s sudden death, you see, William and Harry were told that they could pick out pieces from their mother’s collection. And while Harry initially took the ring and William had Diana’s watch, ultimately the two princes switched their choices – leaving William free to give the ring to Kate.

ADVERTISEMENT

Plus, as it happens, Meghan’s engagement ring also contains a link to Diana. While the central diamond set within the piece of jewelry is an ethically sourced gem from Botswana – the country where Meghan and Harry had their first vacation together – the others alongside it were both taken from a brooch from Diana’s collection.

ADVERTISEMENT

And it seems that Kate has been given access to other pieces that had previously belonged to Diana. For instance, the duchess has been seen sporting the magnificent diamond and pearl-encrusted Lover’s Knot Tiara on more than one occasion. Diana also wore this famous heirloom fairly frequently, although its sheer weight is said to have caused her discomfort.

ADVERTISEMENT

Then there are a pair of earrings that have been crafted to complement the Lover’s Knot Tiara. Diana wore these frequently, and now Kate does too. The duchess sported the earrings at a state banquet in 2017, at the Passchendaele Centenary commemorations in the same year and then at a palace garden party in 2019. They seem to be a favorite of hers, in fact.

ADVERTISEMENT

Plus, Kate seems to borrow jewelry directly from the Queen herself. A brooch shaped to resemble a fern that the duchess often dons doesn’t actually belong to her; instead, the Queen was given it as a gift while touring New Zealand in 1953. It seems, then, that the monarch lends the item to Kate when the occasion calls for it.

ADVERTISEMENT

Even Kate’s wedding tiara was a borrowed piece. On the day of the young woman’s marriage to Prince William, the Queen lent the bride the Cartier Halo Tiara, which is made of nearly 900 diamonds – and it complemented Kate’s wedding dress perfectly.

ADVERTISEMENT

It should be known, too, that the Cartier Halo Tiara has personal significance to the monarch, as the then-Princess Elizabeth was given the headwear as a gift from her parents when she turned 18. Originally, her father, the future King George VI, had had the tiara created for Elizabeth’s mother, who was the Duchess of York at the time.

ADVERTISEMENT

But Kate isn’t the only one to benefit from borrowing the Queen’s jewels. The monarch’s famous Bahrain earrings – which were given to her by the ruler of the Middle Eastern nation as a wedding present – have been lent to Diana and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, as well as Kate. And for Princess Eugenie’s wedding, the Queen let her granddaughter wear the beautiful Greville Tiara.

ADVERTISEMENT

Considering the significance and value of these jewels, then, it’s perhaps not surprising that rumors occasionally surround them. And according to The Sun’s source, there was once apparently a big falling-out over who received which piece. The story in question first appeared in November 2018, and it involved Meghan, Kate and the Queen herself.

ADVERTISEMENT

Reportedly, Meghan was set on a tiara that is embellished with emeralds to wear during her wedding day. The piece she wanted was allegedly off-limits, however, and instead the bride-to-be was said to have been offered an alternative. Yet Harry was apparently none too pleased with this turn of events, and he supposedly insisted, “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Even so, the Queen wouldn’t let Meghan use the jewels. And according to a person whom The Sun called “a well-placed royal insider,” Harry “hit the roof” after hearing the news. The individual claimed, “There was a very heated exchange that prompted the Queen to speak to Harry. She said, ‘Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she’s given by me.’”

ADVERTISEMENT

Now, it’s been said that the Queen has restricted Meghan’s access to the royal jewels. The Sun reported this information in April 2019, with a source telling the newspaper, “It is at the discretion of the Queen and trusted advisors which items in the royal collection she chooses to loan out and to whom.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The person quoted within the Sun article went on to say, “Aspects of Meghan’s behavior, including before the royal wedding, caused resentment with forces within Buckingham Palace. To be perfectly honest, the Queen herself was not impressed with some of Meghan’s demands – especially as a new member of the family.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The source added, “As a result, Buckingham Palace has decided that not all items from the Queen’s royal collection will be opened up to Meghan… The Queen informed Prince William that the items from the Royal Collection worn by Princess Diana would not immediately be made available to Meghan.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Perhaps adding to tensions within the family is the fact that Kate has access to the jewels. As the wife of the second in line to the throne, Kate is afforded a higher status in the family than Meghan. And if, as expected, William becomes king, Kate will almost certainly gain the title of “queen consort.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The apparent insider added, moreover, that the reason for the Queen’s decision was partly down to a matter of “rank.” They told The Sun, “The Queen likes Meghan personally, but this is about the hierarchy. She is showing that maintaining the correct order and precedence within the family is important. Even if Meghan is the most popular woman in the world, she is of a lower rank than Kate.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Nevertheless, the Queen does indeed seem to like Meghan as a person – as far as anyone outside the royal circle knows, anyway. Reportedly, the two have bonded over their shared love of dogs. And in 2017 – so, before Harry and Meghan’s wedding – the Queen even bent the rules a little so that the prince’s then-fiancée could attend Christmas celebrations with the royal family.

ADVERTISEMENT

That said, The Sun dropped another interesting tidbit about royal relations in 2018. Their anonymous source alleged that, in the midst of the “heated exchange” over the wedding tiara, “the Queen [had] also questioned why Meghan needed a veil for the wedding given [that] it was to be her second marriage.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Yes, before the wedding, much was made of the fact that Meghan had been divorced before starting a relationship with Harry. Back in 2011, she’d wed producer Trevor Engelson, with the union ending only a couple of years later. And it should be noted that the Church of England – of which the Queen is head – is largely against the dissolution of marriage if at all possible.

ADVERTISEMENT

Owing to that stance, then, the Queen has faced difficult decisions when it comes to her own family members. For one, she didn’t attend the civil marriage ceremony of Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles – both of whom had previously divorced their respective spouses – because of her adherence to her role in the Church of England. According to The Daily Telegraph, she had told a friend beforehand that she felt her position outweighed her responsibilities as a mother in that instance.

ADVERTISEMENT

Yet the Queen did attend Meghan and Harry’s wedding, and it went off without a hitch in the end. Meghan wore a white Clare Waight Keller dress complete with a veil – a 16-foot-long one, to be exact. And the tiara upon her head was a beautiful one – even if it may not have been her first choice.

ADVERTISEMENT

Meanwhile, there’s been some discussion in the media about who – if anyone – was actually to blame for the alleged tiara crisis. In 2019, for example, Yahoo! News interviewed royal specialist Robert Jobson for its Royal Box series. And while Jobson opined that the story was likely true, he also claimed that the whole affair may not have been Meghan’s fault.

ADVERTISEMENT

Jobson said, “I don’t think Meghan was being difficult when she was picking out a tiara. I think Harry was probably being overly defensive and overly protective.” He did suspect, though, that something had happened between Meghan and Kate, adding, “Whether or not there were reports Kate cried [at the dress fitting]… I don’t know if that’s true or not, but there’s clearly been some confrontation.”

ADVERTISEMENT

And in 2019 Vanity Fair’s royal correspondent Katie Nicholl also spoke to Royal Box Friday, with Nicholl suggesting that there had been yet another dispute between Meghan and the Queen before the royal wedding. This time, however, it had apparently involved the food options that Meghan had wanted for her guests.

ADVERTISEMENT

Nicholl claimed that Meghan, who is said to follow a principally vegan diet, had asked for a “macrobiotic alternative” to the wedding meal. She went on, “[Meghan] got very upset when she felt that she could taste egg in a dish when she was told there was no egg in there, and she said, ‘No, I can taste it. I can taste [that] there’s egg in this dish.’”

ADVERTISEMENT

As a result of the food mishap, then, the situation allegedly became fraught. The royal expert went on, “I think there was a bit of an upset when suddenly the Queen walked in, because, of course, this was Windsor Castle – this is her home. And [the Queen] just quietly took Meghan to the side and said, ‘Meghan, in this family, we don’t speak to people like that.’”

ADVERTISEMENT

But while the information that has allegedly come from palace sources doesn’t generally reflect all that well on Meghan, it appears that she has nevertheless managed to win people around. In October 2019, for instance, an insider told Us Weekly that the Queen had been “really impressed” with Meghan’s conduct during the duchess and her husband’s tour of Africa.

ADVERTISEMENT

The source added that the monarch was particularly pleased “with how Meghan’s upped her game” in public. And as for the relationship between the younger generation of royals? Well, William, Kate, Meghan and Harry all attended a Remembrance Day ceremony together in 2019. So, who knows? Meghan fans may see the duchess in the Lover’s Knot Tiara yet.

ADVERTISEMENT

But perhaps unsurprisingly, this tiara isn’t the first fashion accessory to have seemingly made matters complicated for Meghan. Even something as simple as a dress – of which the duchess has surely been spotted in hundreds – is enough to cause a royal stir, in fact. When Meghan donned a particular frock to a wedding, you see, one detail set in motion some wild rumors.

ADVERTISEMENT

When you’re a royal, dressing up is hard. After all, every outfit you wear in public will be photographed, analyzed and written about, so you have to get it right. This is something that Meghan undoubtedly knows all too well – although getting to live in a palace may help her come to terms with it. Nevertheless, when the Duchess of Sussex wore a long-sleeved maxi dress to a wedding, it sent the royal-watchers of the internet into a frenzy.

ADVERTISEMENT

Of course, fans have been eagerly following Meghan’s fashion choices for quite a while. Ever since she got engaged to Prince Harry and was photographed with him to celebrate, in fact, people have kept a sharp eye on her wardrobe. And in the run-up to Meghan’s wedding, bookmakers even took bets on what designer she might wear on the big day, such was the public interest.

ADVERTISEMENT

That much-anticipated wedding dress turned out to be simple and stunning, naturally. Meghan chose a wide-necked number from Clare Waight Keller, the British artistic director of French label Givenchy. Unsurprisingly, the dress was very expensive. Yet the market very quickly became saturated with cheaper knock-offs for people wishing to emulate the royal bride.

ADVERTISEMENT

After the wedding, the fashion frenzy nicknamed “the Meghan Markle effect” only became bigger. In May 2018, for instance, the duchess made her first public appearance as a royal at a party celebrating Prince Charles’ 70th birthday. She wore a pink dress from the London label Goat Fashion, and interest in it was such that the company’s website crashed that same day.

ADVERTISEMENT

So when Meghan attended another royal wedding just a few weeks after her own, royal fans knew that it would be an exciting occasion fashion-wise. The ceremony was for Celia McCorquodale’s marriage to George Woodhouse. As the bride is Harry’s cousin and niece of his late mother, Princess Diana, the duchess and her new husband were on the guest list. And, of course, the pair showed up holding hands.

ADVERTISEMENT

Meghan wore a white and blue wrap dress with a floral pattern and light-colored accessories to match. The dress came from designer Oscar de la Renta, who’d previously created the dress that Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, had worn to Meghan’s wedding. So this particular dress was obviously beautiful, but the way that it fit the duchess divided the internet.

ADVERTISEMENT

In fact, some people were downright snarky about it. “How does Meghan Markle manage to look like a sack of potatoes?” one Twitter user said. Another joked that Meghan “looks like she re-enacted the Gone with the Wind scene where Scarlett makes a dress from old curtains. [But] Meghan only had a Marks & Spencer duvet to work with.”

ADVERTISEMENT

In addition, others called upon British royal protocol to condemn the choice of dress. “This ‘off the peg’ Oscar de la Renta dress is not supposed to be form fitting. But with this stated, this dress is not appropriate for a high society British wedding. It is much too casual,” a disgruntled observer wrote on Twitter. “British high society has certain mores, including [a] wedding look.”

ADVERTISEMENT

However, if you’re looking to Meghan for adherence to fashion protocol, you’re searching in the wrong place. The duchess apparently loves to break the rules, in fact. In one of her engagement photos, for example, she wore – gasp! – a sheer dress. And while there was a nude lining to the garment to protect Meghan’s modesty, the conservative side of the royal fashion world may have raised a few eyebrows at the choice.

ADVERTISEMENT

Other people liked Meghan’s style, though. For example, Harper’s Bazaar magazine wrote in June 2018 that “while the gown looked slightly baggy on the duchess, the floaty fabric and her matching fascinator created the perfect outfit for the summer nuptials.” And the website Fashionista stated that Meghan had looked “ethereal and angel-like.”

ADVERTISEMENT

But aside from all the fashion discussion, there was one important question: was Meghan wearing such a loose dress because she was pregnant? Predictably, ever since Meghan married Harry, people had wondered when the two of them would begin a family. So had the couple started out even before their wedding?

ADVERTISEMENT

Mind you, at that point the media seemed to have a new “Meghan is pregnant” story almost every day. In June 2018, for instance, the National Enquirer announced that the couple would be having twins, that they’d been covertly attending a clinic that deals with fertility and that the Queen was “horrified.” The Palace tends not to even bother denying such rumors.

ADVERTISEMENT

Nonetheless, Meghan herself shut down those stories, possibly by accident, the month after she wore the maxi dress. On July 10, 2018, she attended a party at the Dublin residence of the British Ambassador to Ireland and drank champagne. And although one glass possibly wouldn’t hurt a baby, it’s nonetheless highly unlikely that the duchess would drink while pregnant.

ADVERTISEMENT

Still, it was assumed that a royal baby – the first child for Harry and Meghan – would be along at some point. During an interview celebrating the couple’s engagement in November 2017, for instance, Harry told the BBC, “Eventually, one step at a time, [we’ll] start a family in the near future.”

ADVERTISEMENT

And the millions of people who watched the royal wedding noticed that a look passed between Harry and Meghan at a particular moment. Certainly, when the reverend spoke about how marriage “is given as the foundation of family life in which children are born and nurtured,” Harry grinned happily at Meghan, and she grinned right back.

ADVERTISEMENT

Then there was also the matter of Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, and what he had to say about the subject. Thomas, who’s been a lightning rod for controversy, told breakfast TV show Good Morning Britain in June 2018 that Meghan had “wanted children for a long time.” He added, “When she met Harry and she spoke about how much she loves him… There’s got to be a child in the making there soon.”

ADVERTISEMENT

As the media both in Britain and worldwide eagerly waited for news of a pregnancy, The Sun published some rules that Meghan would have to follow if she did fall pregnant. These included not revealing the gender of the baby until it was born, informing the Queen first about the birth and not leaving the country unless absolutely necessary.

ADVERTISEMENT

Such strictures are merely a way to uphold years of tradition, however. Indeed, British royals seemingly don’t believe in revealing a new baby’s gender to the public ahead of time; after all, the family has been around for longer than sonograms. And, allegedly, Prince William and Kate Middleton opted not to know the genders of any of their children in advance.

ADVERTISEMENT

What’s more, the Queen has to be told first about the birth because, as the monarch, she outranks everybody else. So, when Prince George was born, William apparently contacted his grandmother on an encrypted phone to let her know before the rest of the world. Kate’s parents were informed only after that duty had been fulfilled.

ADVERTISEMENT

And by August 2018, royal baby rumors had reached a fever pitch. The Sun apparently spoke to an expert about something that could point to Meghan being pregnant. “The one thing that might be interesting is her hair,” etiquette expert Myka Meier told the publication’s Fabulous section. “We don’t know what she does to treat her hair now, but it is likely she uses a keratin or a Brazilian treatment to straighten it.”

ADVERTISEMENT

In fact, in 2011 Meghan actually revealed that she does use the Brazilian treatment. “My mom is black and my dad is Dutch and Irish, so the texture of my hair is densely curly,” she explained. “I’ve been getting Brazilian blowouts for a couple of years.” But how could this be a giveaway when it comes to the possibility of a pregnancy?

ADVERTISEMENT

Well, these treatments often involve formaldehyde, which is a big no-no if you happen to be carrying a child. “I think we’ll see [Meghan] wearing more of a bun when that happens, which could be a tell-tale sign she is pregnant as she’ll no longer be able to use those chemicals that are often used for that glossy look,” Meier said.

ADVERTISEMENT

Then, on October 15, 2018, the long-awaited announcement finally came: Meghan was pregnant. Kensington Palace posted the news on social media, revealing, “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the spring of 2019.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The statement continued, “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.” Politicians and public figures subsequently sent their congratulations to the couple via social media.

ADVERTISEMENT

Meghan’s maternity style quickly became a talking point, too. The mom-to-be unveiled some of her arguably most iconic looks during that period of her life, with blue seeming to feature particularly prominently. While expecting, Meghan was seen out and about sporting a navy Antonio Berardi gown, a gorgeous bespoke Givenchy ensemble and a brightly colored creation called the Veronica Beard Cary Dress.

ADVERTISEMENT

And there was more blue on show when the royal baby came into the world on May 6, 2019. The new arrival was a boy, and his parents bestowed upon him the name Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Landmarks in both Britain and America were also lit up to celebrate: the London Eye was bathed in red, white and blue, while Niagara Falls simply turned blue.

ADVERTISEMENT

Then, a few days after the birth, Meghan and Harry took their baby out into the world for a photo shoot. And for the momentous occasion, the duchess wore an outfit by Grace Wales Bonner that itself seemed to have its own significance. At the time, Oprah magazine noted, “For her first official photo as a new mom, [Meghan] chose a designer who – just like her and, now, the royal baby – is also bi-racial.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Indeed, Meghan very much appears to believe in using fashion to send messages to the world. For example, it’s thought that the outfit she wore while beginning a September 2019 tour of Africa was a tribute to both her host continent and the concept of sustainable fashion. The monochrome May Miko “Dalisto” dress had been created in Malawi with locally sourced materials.

ADVERTISEMENT

Yet Meghan could have been sending a different, more personal message through another dress that she wore in Africa. On the first day of the tour, Meghan changed into an outfit that people had seen before: her blue Veronica Beard dress, which she’d of course worn while pregnant with Archie.

ADVERTISEMENT

And owing to that choice, it didn’t take long for speculation on a second pregnancy to begin. “I’m gonna call it now: Meghan Markle is pregnant again and due around May next year again,” an observer wrote on Twitter. They were far from the only one playing the guessing game on social media, either.

ADVERTISEMENT

The dress itself, meanwhile, was considered a good one for Meghan to have taken on tour. On the website What Meghan Wore, which tracks the duchess’ fashion picks, a commenter wrote, “I… loved the Veronica Beard dress when [Meghan] first wore it, and I like it again now. I think it is casually elegant, and the blue with Meghan’s coloring is just gorgeous!”

ADVERTISEMENT

And rumors that Meghan was pregnant for the second time may have been given further credence the following day, when she once again sported a gown that she’d previously used as maternity wear. This time, the item in question was an attractive brown striped maxi dress – a design by Australian couturier Martin Grant.

ADVERTISEMENT

Furthermore, on the last occasion that the public had seen Meghan in the maxi dress, she’d just revealed her pregnancy to the public and had been embarking on a tour of Australia. Back then, the duchess had also been observed holding her new baby bump while walking about in the garment. But while there appeared to be no bump in the new pictures, that still left one lingering question: was there a chance that Meghan had just discovered a new pregnancy?

ADVERTISEMENT

Well, Tamara Abraham, fashion editor for The Daily Telegraph, wrote in the newspaper that she didn’t believe that was the case; instead, she claimed, Meghan was simply recycling. “The duchess is re-wearing clothes that she last wore while expecting son Archie. And in doing so, she’s showing us that shopping for ‘maternity wear’ isn’t what was,” Abraham stated.

ADVERTISEMENT

“It’s no longer a question of buying specially made or XXL garments that serve no purpose once the baby is born,” Abraham continued. “Instead, Meghan is proving it’s possible to find looks that both accommodate a growing bump and later be a working mum’s wardrobe heroes.”

ADVERTISEMENT

And yet, even putting the dresses aside for the moment, people still seem convinced that Meghan will have another baby sooner rather than later. Indeed, in September 2019 Alex Apati from British bookmaker Ladbrokes told the Daily Mail, “8/11 says Meghan gives birth to a second baby in as many years, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex making it no secret they’re keen to add to their family.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Apati added, “Meghan was 2/1 to have another baby by end of 2020 last month, but a flurry of bets around the country has forced us to cut odds to 8/11 now, with punters convinced an announcement for a second baby will come sooner.” And Meghan’s fashion choices are definitely contributing to that belief.

ADVERTISEMENT

But while it perhaps wouldn’t be out of character for Meghan and Harry to grow their family in the near future, royal fans have to rely on outside sources to hear anything about the couple’s plans. For example, in July 2019 journalist and champion royal-scoop-getter Katie Nicholl talked to Entertainment Tonight about the future of the Sussexes.

ADVERTISEMENT

At that time, Nicholl said that the duke and duchess “absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement – a second pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry – sometime next year.” Nicholl added, however, “But, for the moment, the focus is obviously on Archie.” After all, the young royal is still less than a year old.

ADVERTISEMENT

“I think at the moment, they’re focusing on Archie,” Nicholl continued of the royal couple. “But I know it’s their plan to have more than one child.” So, when Archie is a little older, start looking closely at his mother’s dresses. You never know what the duchess may be cleverly indicating through her fashion choices.
