Harry and Meghan’s ex­cit­ing baby news

New Idea - - Contents -

Meghan Markle has sparked a fresh wave of preg­nancy talk at The In­vic­tus Games in Toronto, thanks to her bizarre food cravings, baggy out­fits and a very ‘clucky’ Prince Harry. Sea­soned palace re­porters have told New Idea that royal cir­cles are abuzz with whis­pers that the love­birds are ex­pect­ing their first child, point­ing to the var­i­ous key signs as proof. The pair’s sur­prise guest of hon­our at the Games’ Clos­ing Cer­e­mony – Meghan’s mother Do­ria Ragland – also raised eye­brows, lead­ing many to won­der if she was there for a spe­cial fam­ily event. ‘It’s in­cred­i­bly un­usual for Harry to in­vite Meghan’s mother to an of­fi­cial func­tion, cer­tainly a big step out­side royal pro­to­col,’ one palace watcher told New Idea.

‘With all the baby talk swirling around for Harry and Meghan, we couldn’t help but won­der whether this was the mo­ment they told her mum about their baby news.

‘Harry and Do­ria were locked in con­ver­sa­tion for much of the night, and they seemed to be in­cred­i­bly happy. When Harry wasn’t talk­ing to Do­ria, he was kiss­ing and cud­dling Meghan – there was cer­tainly a hint of cel­e­bra­tion in the air.’

New preg­nancy whis­pers were first sparked when it was re­vealed that Meghan had de­vel­oped cravings for a spe­cific pizza in re­cent weeks. The star’s des­per­a­tion for the sig­na­ture fig, honey and pro­sciutto pizza at Toronto’s Il For­nello had be­come so in­tense, that she was de­mand­ing her driver make the two-hour round trip to pick it


up while she was film­ing scenes for Suits last week.

‘Meghan of­ten sends her driver and body­guard for din­ner,’ a source tells New Idea. ‘There is or­ganic lo­cal food pro­vided by cater­ers on set, but she only wants the best.

‘She sends for a Pizza Fichi from Il For­nello, which is all the way down­town. It’s a two-hour round trip. They took her own in­su­lated pizza bag with them so it didn’t get cold.

‘She’s al­ready liv­ing like a royal on set, se­cu­rity has re­ally amped up and she has spe­cial fenc­ing around her trailer.’

Adds Karen Mccall, a server at Il For­nello: ‘ We are known for our piz­zas, which are cooked in a wood-burn­ing oven. It’s great that Meghan is a fan of our food, we’ve been here 25 years and had quite a few celebri­ties in.’

Meghan’s wardrobe choices dur­ing her ap­pear­ances by Harry’s side at the In­vic­tus Games has also got the baby ru­mour mill churn­ing – her baggy clothes a huge de­par­ture from the form-fit­ting styles she usu­ally wears.

The 36-year-old ac­tress has re­vealed her love of de­sign­ers Vic­to­ria Beck­ham and Lan­vin – both known for their knock­out, slinky dresses – in the past, and usu­ally wears clothes that show off her killer curves to big events.

‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen Meghan Markle turn up to an event in jeans and a baggy shirt be­fore – much less a loose cardi­gan and baggy T-shirt,’ says one Hol­ly­wood fash­ion com­men­ta­tor. ‘She’s usu­ally wear­ing beau­ti­ful, fit­ted clothes straight from the run­way.

‘It’s no sur­prise that ev­ery­one is won­der­ing whether she’s hid­ing a bump un­der there.’

Mean­while, ‘clucky’ Prince Harry did noth­ing to quell the preg­nancy ru­mours af­ter his adorable an­tics with ba­bies and tod­dlers at the Games, which at­tracted head­lines world­wide.

In par­tic­u­lar, the 33-yearold’s en­dear­ing games with two-year-old Emily Henson – the daugh­ter of ath­lete Dave Henson, who’s a close friend of Harry’s – over a packet of pop­corn caused so­cial me­dia to go into melt­down.

In the gor­geous video, Emily can be seen cheek­ily steal­ing pop­corn from Harry – lead­ing the lov­able prince to play­fully tease the gor­geous tod­dler when she’s caught red-handed.

Adds a palace cor­re­spon­dent: ‘We’ve seen Prince Harry send hearts soar­ing by en­ter­tain­ing lit­tle kids in the past, but he and Emily stole the show!

‘Harry took his cute in­ter­ac­tions with kids at the Games to the next level, and we’re all won­der­ing if he’s ex­tra clucky at the mo­ment for a rea­son. Time will tell!’
