Pregnant Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, looked radiant as she visited a women’s charity this week. However, eagle-eyed royal fans couldn’t help but notice the Duchess of Sussex’s belly button has popped, and this could be an indication of her due date.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes a number of changes, and the transformation from an “innie” to an “outie” is something many mums-to-be experience. It typically happens when the baby grows to take up the spare space in her body, and the uterus puts pressure on the mum’s abdomen.
This can cause the belly button to “pop”, typically in the second or third trimester, and is nothing to worry about. The third trimester of pregnancy lasts from the 29th to the 40th week. Meghan’s “outie” was visible as she wore a figure-hugging black dress from Hatch and a tan coat by Oscar de la Renta at the Smart Works charity.
All the Palace has confirmed is that the baby is “due in spring”, with many experts predicting a March, which would put Meghan in her third trimester.
