ICYMI: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child! And while we can't say we're that surprised (they said they wanted a family "in the near future" during their engagement interview, remember?), we can't help but wonder how Meghan Markle did such a good job hiding her growing baby bump from the constant photographers, royal engagements and public events. Considering the duchess is now over 12 weeks pregnant (say unnamed sources via People), it wasn't easy. Here, all the baby clues from Markle's many outings over the past three months.
Princess Eugenie's Wedding
Markle donned a long navy dress coat by Givenchy for Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday, October 12, when she announced her pregnancy to the royal family (way to steal the bride's thunder, you guys). Since the duchess often wears sheath dresses that flaunt her gorgeous figure, we should've known she was preggers when she covered up in the conservative (and figure-hiding) frock.

Wearing a Givenchy dress with sheer sleeves on September 25, the Duchess stepped out for her first solo royal engagement (no Harry!) and stunned in this belted number with velvet detailing. Often holding her clutch in front of her tummy, she also was given a bouquet of flowers during the event (a well-placed prop works wonders for hiding baby bumps).

Lately, Markle's opted for waist-belted styles, like this belted peplum top by Oscar de La Renta worn on September 24 at the We Are Coach Core awards in England.

The little blue dress heard 'round the world... This Jason Wu number had the baby rumors swirling like crazy due to the suggestive front-ruffle placement, and boy, were they onto somethin' (blue...boy...just a guess?).
