Meghan Markle and her new husband Harry have already revealed plans to start a family, so it's no wonder royal fans are eagerly expecting an announcement...
After just a few months of married life, the couple are often hit with rumours that they’re expecting their first child.
However, when Meghan was seen sipping on champagne during an official engagement recently, baby rumours were instantly put to bed. But turns out that royals fans should be looking elsewhere for signs that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a little one – and it’s all down to her hair.
A few years ago, Meghan, who’s half African-American, revealed that she frequently has Brazilian blow dries to straighten out her curly hair.
She said: ‘My mum is black and my dad is Dutch and Irish, so the texture of my hair is densely curly. I’ve been getting Brazilian blowouts for a couple of years.’
Brazilian blow dry hair treatments use a mix of keratin and formaldehyde, which pregnant women usually cannot have done as the chemicals could harm the baby.
So if Meghan, who already said she wants to start a family with Harry, gets pregnant, she will potentially have to avoid these treatments and hair will become noticeably curlier.
Myka Meier, who runs the Plaza Hotel’s Duchess Effect etiquette courses, spoke to Fabulous about how Meghan’s could be an indication of a pregnancy.
She said: ‘The one thing that might be interesting is her hair. We don’t know what she does now, but it is likely she uses a keratin or a Brazilian treatment to straighten it.
‘As soon as she gets pregnant she will no longer be able to use those same products which could be very interesting. I use the same products and have very curly, frizzy hair and when I got pregnant I had to stop using all of those.’
If that happens, Myka says the Duchess might start wearing her hair up rather her usual look of having her hair down: ‘I think we’ll see her wearing more of a bun when that happens, which could be a tell tale sign she is pregnant as she’ll no longer be able to use those stringent chemicals that are often used or that beautiful glossy look.’
