Meghan Markle wore a very demure, navy, coat dress by Givenchy for Princess Eugenie‘s wedding to Jack Brooksbank today.

As the trusted label behind the Duchess’ wedding dress, Givenchy was not a surprising choice for the 37-year-old.

The Duchess of Cambridge also opted to wear a look by her wedding dress designer, Alexander McQueen.

Twitter users were quick to notice Meghan didn’t remove her coat throughout the service, leading to the expected rumours that she could be pregnant.

Talking to Kate Thornton on Yahoo UK’s special live episode of The Royal Box,’ broadcaster Vanessa Feltz says:  “That shape of coat when she normally wears a tightly belted coat, she’s doing the opposite of that, she’s keeping it done up.”

It’s worth noting that when the Duchess was last photographed, during a day of engagements in Sussex on 3 October, she removed her coat to reveal a fitted pencil skirt – and no bump in sight.

But Meghan and Harry are due to fly out to Australia for their royal tour next week, which also includes travelling to Fiji and Tonga, countries which have a moderate risk of Zika virus transmission.

The NHS advise pregnant women not to travel to countries with high or moderate risk of the virus and also recommend that those trying to conceive should avoid doing so for up to eight weeks after they return home.

Feltz adds: “I’m thinking she is the age she is, we know she wants a family because her father keeps splurging out all the details.

“We know that he says that she wants a baby urgently and I reckon they’re probably trying, and I think that coat is certainly alluding to the prospect, even if it doesn’t necessarily signify.”

For her wedding look, Meghan paired her coat with a matching hat by milliner Noel Stewart, which rested atop the Duchess’ sleek chignon.

The Duchess kept her make-up minimal and her accessories equally subtle.

She wore a pair of Birks diamond stud earrings, accessorised with several gold rings on her hands and carried a navy clutch bag with a pop of electric blue.

A pair of black, leather Prada gloves, carried in her hand, and navy heels finished the look.

Today marked the first time that Meghan and Harry have returned to St. George’s Chapel, where they famously tied the knot in May this year.

But as a mere guest at this wedding, Meghan clearly wanted to remain out of the limelight to give Eugenie her moment in the sun.

The Duchess walked swiftly from her car into the chapel, alongside Harry, and didn’t linger to pose for photos after the service either.
