MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have announced they are expecting their second child.

In the sweet snap, the couple were sat under a tree, with Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she lay in his lap cradling her burgeoning bump.

"We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child," a spokesperson for the couple said.

It's unknown how far along the Duchess is, however, the news has, no doubt, shocked many, particularly because, to date, Meghan's shown no obvious signs she's expecting.

Here, we reveal how the expectant mum has kept her pregnancy a secret.

Loose clothing and limited appearances

The past year has seen a drastic shift in our social lives with less public outings and more hibernating at home.

More so for the royal couple – Meghan and Prince Harry – who've been isolating at home in their LA mansion with their son Archie.

The couple have only been spotted on a number of occasions out and about, and each time Meghan's donned a cool and casual loose-fitting look.

The relaxed look is a far cry from her normally polished attire worn at royal engagements, but the look has also been expected since returning to a far more relaxed LA lifestyle since stepping down as senior members of the royal family..

This new way of living has no doubt allowed Meghan to conceal her growing belly, without suspecting royal fans questioning her outfit choice.

The couple volunteered at a Baby2Baby event in LA late last year with the mum-of-one donning a casual loose white shirt tucked into a pair of green shorts.

Similarly, their Remembrance Day appearance in November saw Meghan dress in a sharp tailored black dress, with its pleat design keeping suspicions at bay.

Zoom chats

For the most part, Meghan has been seen on Zoom calls, as her and Harry regularly take part in video chats with charities and other organisations – most recently joining a poetry class honouring Black History Month.

This has meant the lower half of her body – including her bump – has been easily out of sight, with only her faces in full view.

No social media

The couple's offical Sussex Royal Instagram page was deactivated last year after the coulpleformally gave up their royal duties.

They've since spoken out about not wanting to use social media at all, which has allowed them to fly under the radar for quite some time.

This has meant no insight into the couple's lives and no current photo of Meghan.
