When is Meghan due? Body language expert’s signs to that show the baby is IMMINENT

Meghan Markle is an actress who worked for a decade before she left her career is TV and film behind her for royal life.

However, signs of her life in Hollywood stay with her in her poised behaviour during public duties as a royal.

The star is expecting her royal baby soon, but how can we know when the Duchess is due?

According to one body language expert, the Duchess of Sussex’s body language is so poised that she will not be the one to give away the due date.

Meghan Markle news: When is the baby due? These are the signs to look out for according to a body language expert

Sweetly, the body language expert claims it will be the excited new dad Prince Harry who won’t be able to help to but let the cat out of the bag.

Body language expert Judi James told Express.co.uk: “So far Meghan’s pregnancy body language has been pitch-perfect.

“Her facial expressions have revealed her genuine and ongoing delight and excitement; she’s not skipped a beat in terms of an energetic approach to her royal duties, and her bump-cradling trait has revealed her impatience to have her baby in her arms for real.

“From the killer heels she’s still wearing to the lack of any cues to hint at an aching back or lack of sleep or hidden anxiety, it’s been business as usual so far and I’m guessing that will be the non-verbal narrative right up until the moment we see her and Harry emerging from the hospital with their royal baby in their arms.

“I’m betting it will be Harry who will be the first to crack when it comes to showing the kind of extra levels of anxiety and excitement that might let us know when the baby’s due.”

However, Judi revealed the things we should be looking out for “just in case Meghan feels like dropping her fans some hints.”

Signs that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby is due

Arms and hands

To date Meghan has been using the kind of elegant arm and hand gestures of a ballerina, cradling or holding her bump with enviable poise.

Women can begin to show ‘I don’t know what to do with my hands any more’ traits close to the birth though as the bump feels too big to arrange yourself around easily.

Watch for arms held awkwardly at the sides or hand resting on the top of the bump, again looking less than comfortable.

Chair lowering

Backing into a chair rather than ducking down normally can be a sign of the last stages of pregnancy.

It can be a much slower process and involve some puffing when you finally do get there.

…and the chair launch

Getting up again can require help, too. Harry might need to be on hand to help re-launch his wife when she wants to stand up again.

Signs of back ache

I’m guessing that with Meghan any signals of aches or tiredness will be well hidden but any small back-holding gestures or winces when sitting or standing for a period of time could suggest the kind of back aches and twinges women can suffer from in the third trimester.

Emotional displays

Meghan is known for her congruent, happy-looking smiles and although I’m pretty sure we won’t see public displays of the kind of fluctuating emotions that some women can suffer from near the birth we might catch glimpses of moments when the teeth look slightly clenched or the smile appears rather stretched as though she’s putting on a social mask.

Harry tends to be a less adept masker though and we’ve already seen signs of anxiety from the dad-to-be. He’s been reasonably subtle so far with his protective alpha male displays but expect his eyes to be on his wife more frequently as he monitors her well-being leading up to the birth, and his self-comfort anxiety rituals like hand-rubbing, jacket-holding and fiddling gestures increase.

It was revealed recently that Meghan Markle’s maternity wear cost a shocking sum of money. 

While Kate Middleton, wife of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, is a stickler for relatively inexpensive British high street brands like the now-folded L.K. Bennet and Whistles, Meghan as a penchant for high end designer goods.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick 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.

Meghan’s heritage

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.
