Meghan Markle’s body language towards Prince Harry, while they are in South Africa, seems to suggest that she may be pregnant with their second child.

While speaking with Express, body language expert Judi James said that it was noticeable how touchy and flirty the royal couple was with each other during their royal engagements.

Meghan’s touch and affection rituals with Harry seem to have increased rather than diminished now they are technically out of the honeymoon phase, while he appears even more openly besotted. Her glances at her husband suggest approval and open admiration for the man he appears to have become… The couple ‘stroke’ one another verbally as well as non-verbally in public too, with each pouring praise on the other’s parenting skills,” she said.

James also said that Markle’s first pregnancy was announced while she and Prince Harry were on their first overseas royal tour as a married couple. The Duchess of Sussex just arrived in Australia when Kensington Palace released a statement that she’s expecting.

“As well as this mutual admiration and love there are also some rituals and gestures that could easily prompt rumors that baby number two is on the way, especially as Meghan’s first pregnancy was announced on their last tour. It would be easy to imagine that the couple would be keen to have their second baby quite quickly, thanks to Meghan’s age and the fact that both she and Harry appear almost champing at the bit to get on with their global campaigns as an A-list power couple,” she said.

But it is important to note that Markle’s first pregnancy was announced shortly after she set foot on the continent. The former actress is already half-way through her tour of South Africa and no announcement has been made.

James said that Markle’s non-verbal cues may also suggest that she’s just acting like a very new mom and not as someone who is pregnant again.
