Meghan Markle's outfit at the royal wedding has sparked speculation on Twitter that the Duchess of Sussex could be pregnant.

Royal watchers suggested that Meghan wore a wide-fitting coat to Princess Eugenie's wedding to cover up the beginnings of a baby bump.

Meghan's coat and matching dress were created by favourite label Givenchy, who also designed the Duchess's own wedding dress.

One Twitter user said: 'Judging by the fact that she’s wearing a heavy coat indoors; Meghan Markle is either pregnant or the type to get chilly easily.'

Do understated elegance like Meghan in Givenchy

The Duchess of Sussex seems to be quite enamored with all things Givenchy! From her unforgettable wedding dress to her first solo royal engagement, Meghan has enlisted the talents of the French fashion house on numerous occasions.

It's unsurprising then that she opted for a chic custom Givenchy coat when attending the nuptials of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

With its funnel neck and straight silhouette, Meghan's coat is an understated and effortless alternative to a dress and perfect for an autumn wedding! Keeping to her colour palette, she finished off her look with a pair of navy Manolo Blahnik heels and a hat by Noel Stewart.

Another wrote: 'I'm telling you now Meghan Markle is pregnant.'

'Something about Meghan's outfit choice makes me think she's pregnant and hiding a baby bump. It's so conservative,' another said.

A fourth commenter wrote: 'I guess Meghan’s pregnant. She didn’t take off her wide coat at any point do the wedding. You couldn’t even see her dress.

'Would be so nice for Harry and Meghan to have a baby.'

However one factor making a pregnancy less likely is that Meghan will shortly be visiting Tonga and Fiji which pose a risk of infection by the Zika virus.

Medics advise that Zika virus is not harmful to most people but can be more serious for pregnant women as it could cause birth defects such as abnormally small heads.

Pregnant women should 'consider postponing non-essential travel to areas at moderate risk of Zika virus transmission until after pregnancy', NHS advice says.
