Meghan and Harry have seen tumultuous changes in their lives in the past year. In May they left the Royal Family as working royals, having their last public duties in the UK. They moved to Canada and then later to Los Angeles, USA. Now they are living in Santa Barbara.
What, according to a body language expert, are the clues the public might see that would hint at another Sussex baby?
Is Meghan Markle pregnant again?
Judi James spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk. She said: “Having spirited her husband away to a life of lock-down in LA, Meghan might well see herself perfectly positioned to be considering a second baby.
“She and Harry have been gushing ecstatically about how lock-down has given them more time to spend with Archie and with, sadly, no end in sight to the restrictions they would clearly have enough time on their hands to raise two children in their spacious mansion.
“With their often-quoted plans being to dedicate themselves in guru mode to making the world a better place, this post-pandemic workload might just look Herculean enough for them to consider timing baby number two while they are still living in a work-from-home lull.

“Meghan began her first pregnancy in full celebrity mode, appearing in South Africa clutching huge folders of paperwork to dramatically conceal her barely-visible bump from the press,” Judi said.
“Royals normally tend to use clever tailoring to hide the first signs of pregnancy pre-announcement, but Meghan opted for the kind of props that soap stars often use when the actor is pregnant but the character they’re playing is not.
“This one coy, prop-based ‘tell’ from Meghan could be repeated.
“Of course she could always raise the camera level during her video appearances but as she seemed to enjoy dropping this huge hint the first time around it’s likely she’ll be doing it again.
Who is Meghan Markle? A profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
