You have to see the make-up bag Meghan took on the royal tour

It’s GENIUS

Meghan Markle’s first royal tour with Prince Harry might be over, but that doesn’t mean we’re done talking about the outfits/cute moments/baby news. (In case you missed it, here’s why they chose to announce the pregnancy in Australia.)

When you’re packing for a trip as big as, say, an official tour of four countries, your luggage is a huge part of the organisation when it comes to managing clothes, hair, make-up, etc.

We’ve snuck a peek at the make-up bag Meghan took with her and boy, it is GOOD. But first, a little backstory.

By now we’re all aware that Meghan’s good friend and MUA Daniel Martin was behind her make-up look for the royal wedding back in May.

Martin has recently launched his own (dreamy) vanity case with fashion label Cuyana, and it’ll have you questioning everything you thought you knew about make-up storage. Spoiler alert: ‘I actually gave Meghan and Harry this bag before their trip,’ he revealed in a recent interview.

So, why do we keep wanging on about how great these bags are? We’ll let Martin explain in his own words.

‘A lot of girls I know carry bags that don’t fit their foundation. Or if it does, it’s laying on its side or it’s in a flimsy kind of case,’ he explained to Allure. ‘So I took my Dior Undercover Foundation, which is a pretty standard height for foundation, and measured it from that.

‘If the bottle could stand tall, then you could fit a lot more things into the bag. I wanted to create a bag that you could put your full face in, that’s foundation, concealer, bronzer or blush, a small eyeshadow quad, and lipsticks.’

The bags have a larger base to make sure things can stand up properly, a removable inside wallet and come in five different colours. But they’re not just great for make-up, they’re perfect for skincare and grooming products, too (hence why Harry also has one).

‘For guys, our stuff tends to be a bit bigger, whether it’s a deodorant stick or a cleanser. So I really thought about how versatile this bag could be, regardless of what you want to put in it.

‘The most important thing, though, was that whatever you had inside could stand up.’ See what I mean? Genius.

The Vanity Sets retail for $ 110 but, good news, they ship to the UK. We’ll take ten, please.

Meghan Markle’s Stylist Wants to Gut Your Wardrobe. Resist!

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Reporting live from underneath a pile of feathered skirts, it’s me, a woman who owns far too many clothes. Please don’t tell Jessica Mulroney.

The Canadian stylist, who is known for her close working relationship and friendship with Meghan Markle, landed a fashion correspondent gig on Good Morning America this week. For her first segment, Mulroney broke down the concept of a “Capsule Collection” and why every woman should have one.

Mulroney, who dressed the duchess in a $ 1,495 Brandon Maxwell sheath and $ 2,454 Givenchy pantsuit, has one simple sartorial wish for all us non-royals. “A capsule collection is finding those six pieces you can mix and match, do day to night,” Mulroney said in her seven-minute segment. “[Clothes that] you actually wear; they don’t just hang in your closet.”

By wearing these jeans, Meghan changed the life of 30 women

While some people might think the cost of Meghan Markle’s Australian wardrobe might have been high, you can’t deny that the Duchess is great at showing her support for emerging brands and designers.

Plus, Meghan is an advocate of sustainable and ethical fashion, which she proved by wearing one particular pair of jeans more than five times on the tour.

Said jeans are by Australian brand Outland Denim, who use organic cotton and natural vegetable dyes to make their jeans.

View this post on Instagram

What a week for Outland Denim! Never could we have imagined the overwhelming support shown to our brand, our team and our mission since the Duchess of Sussex wore our Harriet jean not once but multiple times during her stay in Australia for the Invictus Games. This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment thanks to the "Markle Effect"! Meghan's modelling of positive change through the power of fashion sets a precedent for all other people with a public profile. Now to enjoy watching the Royal couple in New Zealand along with the rest of the world! 🌎 #madedifferent #zeroexploitation . . . . . 📸 Annette Dew/Newspix, Samir Hussein/Getty images

A post shared by Outland Denim (@outlanddenim) on

But more importantly, by wearing them, Meghan changed the life of 30 women. You see Outland Denim employ women in Cambodia who have been enslaved or sexually exploited.

Once the Duchess was spotted wearing the black Harriet jeans, these sold out within 48 hours, resulting in a massive 640% increase in sales.

Outland Denim has said that as a result, it can employ up to 30 more women.

In an Instagram post, it said, ‘Thanks to the Duchess’ choice in denim, we’re pleased to announce that it will be possible to employ a further 15 to 30 seamstresses in our Cambodian production house in the coming weeks, and the recruitment process has already begun’.

Another one read, ‘This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment.’

Excellent news indeed.

The View’s Meghan McCain Tried To Come For Stacey Abrams On Gun Laws, Promptly Gathered

2018 Essence Festival New Orleans

Source: Derrick Salters/WENN.com / WENN

Meghan McCain didn’t know who she was dealing with. The View host questioned Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams about her stance on gun control and the Spelman and Yale grad swiftly and eloquently shut down the late Sen. McCain’s daughter. 

McCain asked Abrams, who is proud to have an F-rating from the NRA, if she was in favor of banning at infamous AR-15 assault rifle in the wake of the synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Abrams ably answered the leading question.

“So let’s be clear, I am not anti-gun. My great-grandmother taught me how to shoot when I was growing up in Mississippi,” said Abrams. “I like trap shooting, I like target shooting. I don’t hunt because I mostly eat chicken and that just seems mean.”

That latter portion of her answer elicited laughs, and McCain, who was trying to give the impression that Abrams wants to storm in and take everyone’s guns away, just wasn’t ready.

She added, “However, I know that the most responsible gun owners understand that they have the responsibility for the firearms, and making sure that only responsible people have those firearms. That’s I why I believe in a background check.”

She also got cheers when she said she believed weapons of mass destruction, like the AR-15, should not be in civilian hands.

Watch Abrams’ gathering, and her assertion that she believes in the 2nd amendment, in the clip below.

Meghan Markle Cradles Baby Bump as She Meets Members of the Public with Prince Harry in Auckland

The weather finally cleared up for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they greeted fans in Auckland, New Zealand.

After a busy day that included dedicating an area of native bush to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, participating in “welly wanging” contest with local children and visiting a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison, the royal couple met members of the public.

As they interacted with fans, the royal parents-to-be received several gifts from the crowd including an All Blacks — the country’s football team — onesie, a tui bird soft toy and even a rain boot, or a Wellington as locals call the footwear, stuffed with roses.

Meghan, 37, stepped out in a beige Brandon Maxwell dress with matching Stuart Weitzman pumps and a beige Burberry Bishop trench coat.

The dress clung to her baby bump which she cradled as she walked along with Harry, 34,  by her side. For their meet and greet, the prince wore a navy suit with a white button-down shirt underneath.

The duo made sure to talk to as many royal fans as possible — especially the younger members of the crowd.

Meghan invited a little girl through the crowd control fence and was rewarded with a sweet stuffed toy of a native tui bird.

Harry was particularly enamored with a little baby and reached out and gave the child what appeared to be a little tickle.

“Walkabouts,” as the royal meet and greets are commonly referred to, have provided some of Meghan and Harry’s most candid moments of the royal tour. Shortly after arriving to New Zealand, Meghan comforted a sobbing teenage fan by holding her hands.

One young royal fan who was wearing a shirt that read “Girls Can Do Anything” caught Harry’s eye in Sydney — so much that he just had to call his wife over to meet her.

“We feel she looks a bit like you,” a person in the crowd is heard telling Meghan in a video posted by Harry Meghan Updates on Instagram.

The Duchess of Sussex replied, “I was literally about to say the same thing!”

Harry then took a fan’s phone to snap a photo of Meghan with her mini-me —  a rare move for the prince, who usually adheres to the royal protocol of no autographs or selfies.

Earlier in the day, the royal couple bonded with local children from the environmental education group, “Trees of Survival,” and joined the kids for a “welly wanging” contest.

The objective of the game was to throw a Wellington boot — which New Zealanders refer to as “Wellies” — as far as possible. (Wellingtons are equivalent to what Americans call rainboots, Bean Boots, or duck boots.)

The children cheered as Meghan showed off her strength and won the competition, throwing her red-and-white polka-dotted boot approximately a meter away from Harry’s blue boot. For the win, the Duchess was rewarded with a rainboot-shaped trophy.

Adding to the couple’s growing list of baby gifts, Meghan and Harry were also given a small pair of green and white boots for their newest family member.

Later on in the day, the Royals joined New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in Auckland for a visit to Pillars, a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison by providing special mentoring programs.

Meghan and Harry already had a special connection to the charity: as a wedding present to the couple, the government of New Zealand gifted $ 5,000 to Pillars. During Tuesday’s visit, they met some of the children who directly benefited from the funding.

The royal couple started their whirlwind 16-day tour Down Under in Sydney, with a number of day trips to other areas of the country, and kicked off the 2018 Invictus Games before spending a few days in Fiji and Tonga.

They returned to Sydney for the end of the Invictus Games before heading to New Zealand to wrap their tour.

Meghan and Harry will wrap up their busy day at a reception hosted by the Prime Minister at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke away from tour for a mini moon

These two!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off on their royal tour this month, with the couple currently on the New Zealand leg of their trip, having already visited Australia, Fiji and the kingdom of Tonga.

But with a jam-packed schedule of official events and appearances, it’s hardly surprising that Harry and Meghan haven’t had much downtime – something they surely need, especially following the news of their future baby, expected in Spring 2019.

It has recently emerged however that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex did actually escape for a mini moon on their tour and we didn’t even notice.

The royal couple reportedly took some time away during their royal tour of Fiji, escaping for a ‘mini moon’ at the Vatuvara Private Islands Resort on Kaibu Island, before returning to royal duties in Tonga.

Meghan has opened about her pregnancy during the tour, explaining how it has made her feel jet lagged, so here’s hoping she managed to catch up on some sleep!

Luckily, it looks like the mini moon did the trick, with the royal couple seeming relaxed and restored when they arrived in Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New Zealand – and people are talking about them more than ever, especially after Harry let his nickname for his future baby slip!

These two!

Here’s hoping they get to have another mini moon soon!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently undertaking their first official long royal tour, journeying through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga together.

To say that they have been a hit would be a huge understatement, with the royal newlyweds making viral news every day, from their sweet comments about their future arrival to their warm greetings with members of the public.

From Meghan staying up late to bake banana bread for their host family to Prince Harry having his beard stroked by a very young fan, these two might have accomplished one of the most successful (and friendly) royal tours ever.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that there is a high demand for the royal couple to visit other countries too, with many questioning when a tour around the United States would take place.

Well, according to TMZ, a royal tour of the USA was supposed to take place in Spring 2019. It has now however been postponed.

But why the push back? Well, for their baby!

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan Are Good Sports at Wheelchair Basketball Game in Australia

A vision of good sportsmanship! Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan looked fresh-faced and game ready on Saturday, October 27, during day 12 of their first international tour together.

The pair — who kicked off the royal adventure on October 15 just hours prior to the news that Meghan, 37, is pregnant and expecting her first child with Harry, 34 — got into the spirit of the Invictus Games during a wheelchair basketball game in Sydney, Australia.

The former actress wore a belted maroon peplum top by Scanian Theodore, black Outland pants and black Sarah Flint heels for the occasion. Meanwhile, the prince sported a black Invictus Games shirt and gray pants.

The couple presented each member of the winning Team USA with gold medals after the final match, with the Netherlands coming in second place and England finishing third.

While the duke and duchess sat alongside Prime Minster Scott Morrison and Defense Minister Christopher Pyne at the game, David Beckham, an Invictus Games ambassador, was also spotted taking in the match with his 16-year-old son Romeo. The former soccer pro and Victoria Beckham attended the royals’ May 19 nuptials.

Boy Who Made Meghan Markle a Macaroni Necklace Now Taking Jewelry Orders from Around the World

Meghan Markle is known for being a style icon, even when it comes to the homemade accessories she wears.

While greeting fans in Melbourne during the Royal Tour last week, Meghan was approached by 6-year-old Gavin Hazelwood, who gifted the Duchess a homemade pasta necklace. The royal, 37, instantly put the adorable necklace on, and now Gavin is becoming just as well-known with jewelry order requests coming in from around the world.

“We had a lot of people saying to Gavin, you should make more, you’ll make lots of money from this, everybody will want to buy her necklace,” his mom, Rowan Hazelwood, told Network 10, as reported by CBS News.

The family decided to create a website for Gavin, where fans can purchase the dinosaur-shaped pasta with gold paint necklaces for $ 20. The kindergartener has since received orders from Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Gavin intends on donating all of his profits to a stillborn research charity, CBS reported, as his mother previously lost a baby girl.

“She’s a part of our lives still, even for the kids, and they talk to her every day,” she told Network 10.

The Melbourne native, who was adorably dressed as a Qantas pilot, crafted the ribbon and gold-painted pasta necklace earlier that morning after telling his mom he was feeling sick so he could skip school and make the necklace for Meghan.

“I did the pasta with gold paint. Mum helped me thread through the necklace,” he told Fairfax Media.

After receiving the gift, Meghan immediately put it on over her navy Dion Lee dress. The royal mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, proudly wore the gift during the rest of the outing until she arrived at a formal reception inside Government House.

Meghan often wears jewelry that has sentimental meaning.

Earlier in the tour, she wore butterfly earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. And when Prince Harry and Meghan first began dating, she was spotted wearing a gold, personalized necklace with the letters M and H on it.

Why Meghan Markle’s bump appears to be bigger in the evening

Oh…

All eyes are currently on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they prepare to welcome their first child together in the Spring.

The couple announced that they are expecting via Kensington Palace’s Twitter account earlier this month, and have since gone on to discuss their happy news – from Meghan’s pregnancy symptoms to the gender that Prince Harry is hoping for.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down in Tonga today as part of their 16-day royal tour, having visited Australia and Fiji over the last couple of weeks.

But during their time in Fiji, many noticed that Meghan’s baby bump suddenly appeared noticeably bigger.

At a reception dinner hosted by the President of Fiji, Meghan wore a gorgeous blue Safiyaa Ginkgo cape dress and was photographed cradling her bump.

It left those on Twitter questioning whether the more visible bump was the result of her choice of clothing – but experts have revealed that there is something more to it.

Doula Susannah Birch explained to Trimester Talk that this could be down to tired abdominal muscles.

She said: ‘At night time, your abdominal muscles are tired from holding your bump [and they] loosen as they grow more tired, which allows your bump to sit out further and appear larger.’

A second expert has also offered their opinion. Obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Joseph Sgroi told Mamamia: ‘A lot of women will say that towards the end of the night they do feel a lot more bloated, and that bloating sensation is a combination of them obviously having eaten over the course of the day.

‘One of the things progesterone does, which is the primary hormone that’s secreted from the placenta, is it actually slows down gut motility, so it slows down the transit time from when you eat something to when it comes out the other end.’

So now you know.

Meghan Mania Sweeps Australia

SYDNEY — At the halfway point of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, the duchess momentarily hit the pause button — leaving Prince Harry to fly solo for several engagements on Sunday and Monday, citing his wife’s fatigue as she juggles their hectic schedule with the first trimester of her pregnancy.
The duchess isn’t the only one catching her breath.
A number of Australian designers are still reeling from the “Meghan effect,” after she showcased as many as five local labels in her tour wardrobe last week, alongside international brands such as Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Roksanda Ilincic, Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and Birks.
On Saturday, the duchess wore a black coat dress by London-based New Zealander Emilia Wickstead, to lay a wreath at the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park. She then changed into a white Altuzarra jacket, black Mother Denim jeans and black Invictus Games-branded shirt, to watch the first competition of Prince Harry’s international sporting competition — in which 500 injured military veterans from 18 countries will compete this week in Sydney.
For the Games opening ceremony on Saturday evening, she changed into a navy Stella McCartney dress and matching coat by Gillian Anderson

Prince Harry just made a very public speech about Meghan Markle and their baby

And it’s too much!

Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old Prince to become a father himself.

And now it seems the time is here.

Yes, after tying the knot in May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced last week that they were expecting a baby, arriving in Spring 2019.

The news broke soon after the royal couple’s arrival in Australia for their royal tour, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly telling the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton at Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

Following the official statement by Kensington Palace, the future parents have spoken out about their excitement.

‘Thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,’ Prince Harry announced in his speech at the Invictus Games opening ceremony. ‘I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.

Unsurprisingly the comments have set the internet alight with excitement, and it’s not the first comments the couple have made about their future arrival, while on tour.

While visiting a family in Dubbo, New South Wales, Meghan is said to have opened up about her pregnancy with mother Emily Carroll, who has 13-month-old daughter Ruby.

‘Meghan told me that she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she’s running on adrenalin,’ Emily explained. ‘She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle.

Emily continued: ‘She’s made for this royal business, isn’t she? They’re both great with kids.’

‘We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby,’ Prince Harry said during a speech last week. ‘Whether it’s a boy or a girl. So thank you very, very much.’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Make a Quick Outfit Change to Hit the Beach in Australia

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping the beach clean — and looking stylish while doing it!

The couple, who announced Monday that they are expecting their first child, continued the third day of their royal tour by visiting Albert Park Primary School and also the beach in Melbourne, Australia.

Before their final outings of the day, the pair made quick outfit changes from their earlier looks. They did not, however, choose the most practical beach attire.

Meghan, 37, ditched her navy dress and matching suede heels for a black Club Monaco “Miguelina” dress with her trusty black Rothy’s flats — a shoe she has previously switched into during their tour.

She did, however, kept on her Martin Grant trench coat which has been a fashion staple for her during their royal tour.

Meanwhile, Harry, 34, — who matched his wife at their prior events in a navy suit with a white button-down shirt — switched into a pair of black pants and a gray jacket.

The royal ditched his tie and opted to leave his shirt collar buttoned.

RELATED: Royals Mania! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Treated Like Pop Stars as They Arrive in Melbourne

The couple first met with student Sustainability Leaders and Waste Warriors at Albert Park Primary School and learned how the sustainability programs are integrated into the curriculum, before being greeted by many of the school’s younger students.

At one stop along the school’s pathway, Harry sweetly asked a group of students — who were lined up outside excitedly squealing, waving, and yelling their names — if this is where they went to school. One child ignored the question and instead, simply told the prince that he resembled their uncle.

Keeping with their sustainable theme, the pair rode public transport to their next stop, hopping on one of Melbourne’s iconic trams for a short ride from the school to South Melbourne Beach.

As they left, onlookers waved from the crowd, while some even stood on top of their roofs across the street to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.

Onboard the tram, the royals interacted with more schoolchildren during the quick ride. A few minutes later, they arrived at the beach where they were welcomed by another large set of excited onlookers.

As they made their way onto the sand, the couple was greeted by volunteers from BeachPatrol and local children from the area for a beach cleanup. The organization dedicates itself to keeping Melbourne’s shores free of litter to reduce the negative impact of litter on the marine environment and food chain as well as provide a safe environment for the public to enjoy their local beach.

During the outing, Harry and Meghan were also introduced to four lifeguards from the beach.

But the couple didn’t stay much longer after that and finally headed back towards land.

After their departure, one teen — who introduced himself as 15-year-old Milo Thompson — said he was especially impressed with the royal couple’s demeanor during his interaction with them on the sand.

“I was expecting to introduce myself and be real proper,” he said of meeting Prince Harry. “But he came and introduced himself and was calm and collected, and paying a lot of attention to us… they’re down-to-earth and fun to be around.”

Earlier in the day, Meghan and Harry met fans in Melbourne, gathered on the grounds of the city’s Royal Botanic Gardens. One lucky young woman even got a giant hug from the prince, causing her to break down in (very happy!) tears.

After greeting fans, Meghan and Harry headed to a reception with local government.

While there, the royal couple was shown several sporting demonstrations, including a student-designed Formula 1 racing project, which gave Meghan a fright during its incredibly loud launch.

“I did not expect that!” she exclaimed of their speedy takeoff while laughing at her own jumpy reaction.

Meanwhile, Harry looked as happy as a child in a toy store, beaming at the cars and laughed at his wife’s startled reaction. “Wasn’t quite expecting that,” he joked to her. Harry even fist-pumped when they were first invited to try the cars.

While the boys showed off their car project, outside the girls showed off their sporting skills. Meghan met with ambassadors from This Girl Can, which is an organization focused on encouraging women to take up sports.

During the outing, Meghan demonstrated her athleticism, tossing around an AFL football and showing off her best hand-passing skills.

They were then treated to a cooking demonstration showcasing native Australian food at a social enterprise restaurant which provides guidance and opportunity to young Aboriginal people who are in need of a fresh start in life.

During the demo led by Executive Chef Greg Hampton, Meghan and Harry were able to taste some fresh herbs from the area.

Tomorrow, the couple will head back to Sydney for the weekend, before making a stop at Frasier Island on Monday.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have received their first baby gift, and it’s very appropriate

You’ll never guess what it is…

Less than 48 hours after the announcement that Meghan Markle is pregnant and the couple have already received a gift for their first child.

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the baby is due in spring 2019 – although people already reckon they’ve worked out Meghan’s due date.

While the royal family found out the news on Friday, it’s thought that Meghan shared her pregnancy with this person a couple of months before.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a jam-packed first day of their royal tour in Sydney, meeting Invictus games representatives as well as visiting a zoo and the Royal Opera House.

At the beginning of the day the pair were presented with a cuddly kangaroo by Australia’s Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to which Meghan exclaimed, ‘Our first baby gift!’

Later they also received a tiny pair of Ugg boots that we’re sure will come in handy – although Meghan already has a gift for her future daughter, which she’s had for years.

At Taronga Zoo the couple also met a pair of baby koalas that had been named after them in honour of their nuptials, according to The Sun. We’re jealous.

‘We genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, be it a boy or a girl,’ Harry said of the baby news.

Duchess Meghan Just Sparked Pregnancy Rumors … Again

Royal watchers are buzzing with speculation that Duchess Meghan is pregnant.

The Suits alum, 37, sparked rumors with the outfit she selected to wear for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding at Windsor Castle in England on Friday, October 12. Meghan stepped out in a navy dress by Clare Waight Keller (the same Givenchy designer who created her wedding gown), but she covered it up with a long, loose-fitting coat that she kept buttoned even while inside the church.

“Judging by the fact that she’s wearing a heavy coat indoors, Meghan Markle is either pregnant or the type to get chilly easily,” one Twitter user remarked. Another tweeted, “Something about Meghan’s outfit choice makes me think she’s pregnant and hiding a baby bump. It’s so conservative.”

This is not the first time in recent weeks that fans have wondered about a potential pregnancy. While attending the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London on September 6, Meghan wore a royal blue Jason Wu dress with ruffles over the stomach area. A Kensington Palace source blamed the rumors on “an unflattering dress and wind” at the time, telling Us that the former actress and her husband, Prince Harry, are focusing on “their official work … before starting a family.”

That said, Meghan and Harry, 34, do have children on their brains. A source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly that the couple are “trying for a baby,” and both want “at least three kids.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who wed in May, are scheduled to arrive in Sydney, Australia, early next week for their first royal tour as husband and wife.

Sexy, Classic, Surprising: Inside Meghan Markle’s Royal Wardrobe

It took Meghan Markle only two seconds to close her own car door on Wednesday. But the moment of relatability left many Markle stans clutching their imitation Aquazzura pumps in celebration. Deal or No Deal-briefcase-girl-turned-royalty… they’re just like us! Except for, you know, the million-dollar wardrobe.

Before closing her own door, Markle had exited the her car in a long-sleeved, black Givenchy number that would come off a bit too Wednesday Addams save for a strategically placed skirt slit. For her first solo outing as a royal, Markle oozed the breezy confidence she’s known for.

Even before joining the royal family, Markle projected self-assuredness. She ran a site called The Tig, where she blogged about independence and living alone. In 2015, she penned an essay for Darling detailing how she found self-confidence as a young actress when a casting director told you, “You need to know that you’re enough.”
