Why Is Everyone Convinced that Meghan Markle Is Pregnant?

While most of the world's eyes were on Princess Eugenie during her wedding, there was a contingent of die-hard royal fans who had their focus elsewhere: Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex arrived at the ceremony in a dark blue Givenchy dress and matching coat, which made the collective internet come to the only possible solution: she's pregnant.

E! News reports that Markle kept her coat on and buttoned-up the for the entire wedding. While some fashion fans just let the fact slide because of the event's somewhat-modest dress code (no skin-tight bandage dresses allowed, apparently). Nobody actually got to see the Givenchy dress underneath the coat, E! adds, so it's unclear what it even looked like.

But there's one more detail that adds to the pregnancy speculation. Markle and Prince Harry are set to embark on their very first royal tour soon, which previously included a stop in Fiji. According to the Australian magazine New Idea, a local tour guide casually mentioned that only Harry would be making an appearance in the island nation.

Meghan could be avoiding Fiji because of an apparent outbreak of Zika, a disease known to affect pregnant women and their unborn babies. If that's the case, it's a big clue as to whether or not the duchess could be carrying a tiny royal. Coats and travel changes: what could be more obvious?
