Meghan Markle stepped out this week without her stunning engagement ring as the Duchess of Sussex’s due date grows closer.
With the due date only around the corner, the Duchess if Sussex has been spotted only wearing her wedding band during royal engagements.
Kate Middleton’s sister-in-law usually wears her wedding band alongside her stunning engagement ring, which contains diamonds for the late Princess Diana’s jewellery collection.
Royal experts have speculated this is probably down to the Duchess’ fingers swelling due to her pregnancy.
Swollen ankles, feet and fingers are very common in pregnancy.
It often gets worse towards the end of the day and further into a pregnancy, the NHS explain.
Many fans of the Duchess think this is a sign Meghan’s due date is closer than first suspected.
However, Meghan’s due date is of course only known to the royal family.
When Meghan and Harry announced their pregnancy in October 2018, they revealed the baby was due in Spring 2019.
The Duchess of Sussex however gave the public more of an idea of the due date when she revealed in January this year she was six months along.
