Meghan Markle’s growing baby bump raises speculation that she might be expecting twins
With the release of the recent photograph of the Duchess of Sussex showing her baby bump, several parents came forward to speculate about the possibility of royal twins on the way.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended a Christmas carol service at St. Luke’s Church in London when a camera captured Markle’s growing pregnancy bump. Now parents of twin children are placing their bets on the possibility of Markle expecting twins.
Keir Simmons, the News Correspondent for NBC News, is one of the first people to have made the prediction. “As a father of twins, I’m going out on a limb here guys,” he said, “I’m saying it’s twins.”
Another journalist, Lexi Rudolph, the vice president of booking for NBC News, compared Markle’s bump to one that she had during her own pregnancy.

“It just makes sense. Given her extensive royal duties, it would be much more efficient to have two at once. Plus the way she’s carrying – her belly sort of popped just like mine did.”

Rudolph further speculated that Markle might have been getting tips about expecting twins from one of her closest friends of recent times, Amal Clooney.
Both Markle and Harry have been close with the Clooneys in the past, with the royal couple even spending a vacation with them over the summer. So, Rudolph explained that there is a possibility that Markle might be getting some advice from the twin mom, Amal.
Minah Kathuria, the supervising producer for Today, also explained that having twins is a lot different from having a single child, and it would become more apparent in the later part of Markle’s pregnancy.

Meanwhile, Today noted that during the official announcement of Markle’s pregnancy, Kensington Palace declared that Markle was pregnant with “a baby,” rather than “babies.”
Previously, Markle allegedly had been making quite an effort to hide her growing baby bump by making intelligent choices in her wardrobe.
