Meghan and Harry announced in October 2018 they were expecting their first child, much to the delight of royal fans across the globe. With their announcement came the revelation their baby was due to be born in the Spring. However, as Meghan’s baby bump grows Kensington Palace has released no further information on when the newest royal arrival will enter the world.
Could THIS reveal the pregnant Duchess’ due date?
On Thursday, January 10, Meghan visited Smart Works, a charity the Duchess has just become a patron of.
The charity provides interview preparation skills and clothing to help women who are long-term unemployed, something which Meghan is passionate about.
However, there was something about Meghan on this visit which has sparked speculation as to her due date.
Wearing a tight black dress from Hatch as she made her solo outing, Meghan’s belly button could clearly be seen.
This could be an indicator that Meghan is in her third trimester according to The Sun.
Doctor Dr Carol Cooper told The Sun: “It’s absolutely normal for the belly button to become more prominent in pregnancy.
“This happens because the pressure inside the abdomen rises as the pregnancy progresses.
“A woman who’s got an ‘innie’ often finds this becomes an “outie” sometime after mid-pregnancy, often between 26 and 36 weeks.
“The timing isn’t reliable enough to make any predictions as to when the baby will arrive. Obviously, though, it does suggest the baby is growing.
“The belly button normally goes back to the shape it was before, but, like the rest of the body, it can take time.
“It doesn’t always look quite as neat as before the pregnancy. Think of a sock that’s no longer straight from the shop.”
The third trimester is from the 29h week of pregnancy to the 40th week.
According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, it is 5/6 that Meghan gives birth in March, 2/1 in April.
That is followed by 4/1 that the royal addition is born as early as February and 10/1 that Meghan will have her first child as late as May.
Meghan and Harry wed in a lavish ceremony at St George’s Chapel in May 2018.
Ahead of the birth of their firstborn, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be moving into Frogmore House, Windsor which is currently under renovation to be transformed into a family home.
