During her last public appearance for the year – a visit to a London nursing home – the 37-year-old could be heard saying that she felt, "very good... very pregnant."
Some pundits have taken this to mean that Markle is further along in pregnancy than many thought.
Kensington Palace publicly confirmed the happy news on October 15, before the royal couple official kicked off their royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand. It's safely assumed that Markle had already had her 12 week scan before the announcment was made, but some speculate that she might have been as far along as 14 or 15 weeks. This would put her at around five to six months pregnant with a due date in March or April.
According to Vanity Fair, Markle will be working well into her pregnancy.
"Meghan has told aides she wants to work as close to her due date next spring as possible," a source said.
