Though all eyes were on beautiful bride Princess Eugenie and her teary-eyed husband Jack Brooksbank, fans tuning into their nuptials couldn’t help but notice the delightful chatter happening between Meghan Markle and Princess Anne. The hand gestures and laughter were a mystery at the time – but now, after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy announcement, they seem to make a lot more sense.

On Friday (Oct. 12), Meghan took her seat beside Prince Harry’s aunt Anne. The pair had an animated conversation, showing off their megawatt smiles and charming personalities. Because it’s believed that Harry and Meghan revealed the news to the family that day, just before taking off for Australia, it’s thought that this could have been the moment that the couple told Prince Charles’s sister – and the 68-year-old may have bestowed some parenting advice on Meghan. And she would know – after all, she has two incredible children herself, Zara Tindalland Peter Phillips, and watched her grandchildren Savannah, Isla and Mia walk down the aisle as bridesmaids.
I didn't want to say anything at the time because I know how annoying the rumour mill is, but Meghan's conversation with Princess Anne suddenly makes a lot more sense now.— Charlie Proctor (@MonarchyUK) October 15, 2018

Meghan in her elegant navy-blue Givenchycoat and Princess Anne donning a gorgeous emerald hued ensemble, the two clearly had a lot to talk about. Charlie Proctor, the editor-in-chief of Royal Central, retweeted a clip he originally posted on the royal wedding day with the additional caption pointing to the exciting baby news: “I didn’t want to say anything at the time because I know how annoying the rumour mill is, but Meghan’s conversation with Princess Anne suddenly makes a lot more sense now. Anne looking at her stomach, the hand movements etc #RoyalBaby”.
It’s been quite the whirlwind weekend for the Sussexes, who made it safely to the first destination of their 16-day royal tour. The couple arrived together holding hands, with glowing Meghan holding a stack of binders in front of her stomach. Many are piecing the past few months together, finding hints in Meghan’s wardrobe choices, posture and pregnancy glow. In their first photo on the Australian tarmac, the former actress and her beau showed off their megawatt smiles – which seem cheeky now, as they anticipated the release of today’s news!
