Today, the royal family broke the amazing news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child. The craziest part, though, is that Meghan actually gave a major pregnancy clue three weeks ago that you might have missed.
On September 24, Meghan and Harry made an appearance at the Coach Core Awards at Loughborough University. Meghan's hair, which she usually wears curly or in a bun, was pin straight, with (it looks like) some v fresh layers. Take a look.
After combing through 60+ pages of the latest pictures of Meghan (because I am a journalist and I care about these things), I found out that she hasn't worn her hair straight like that since at least before her wedding to Prince Harry. This is her usual style:
You may be thinking... what's the big deal about this? So the girl changed her hair.... But, there's something important to note here.
When Kate Middleton announced her third pregnancy, one reporter noticed a very subtle pattern.
Pattern is Duchess of Cambridge changes her hairstyle, people concentrate on her head, then announces pregnancy. My gfs called this wks ago!

And the internet latched on, using pictures as evidence. Here's Kate about two months before her most recent pregnancy reveal, looking totally normal.
Then, here she is one month before the reveal, sporting a new chop.
Taking it back a little further, here she was in the summer of 2014 two months before the news of baby Charlotte was announced. Totally normal hair. The signature style.
But here's a photo of her just one month before the Charlotte news hit, and media pointed out that she was "embracing her roots" more than ever.
I mean, it's possible she just skipped a colorist appointment and this was totally unintentional, but it could still be part of a pattern. Here's the most compelling evidence of all. One month before the Prince George news, Kate was wearing her perfectly blown out brown curls as per usual.
But then, only a week or two before they announced the pregnancy, she shocked the world by getting BANGS. BANGS ARE NOT SUBTLE.
People were so preoccupied that the announcement of Prince George's existence on Dec. 3 was a slight shock to the masses.
Technically this is all just a fun internet theory and no one from the palace has confirmed this in regards to Kate or Meghan. But, Meghan did in fact announce her pregnancy just three weeks after sporting a new style. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.
