In October, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they would be parents down the road. And it seems like everything has changed in their lives since then. 

The Duchess's hairdo

On September 24, the Duke & Duchess paid a visit to the Coach Core Awards at Loughborough University, where Meghan surprised everyone with her new hairstyle. Usually, she prefers curls or a bun or something more royal on formal occasions, but that day, she decided to make her hair straight with some fresh layers.

You may be sitting and thinking 'Why am I reading about Meghan's sudden hair change?' Well, it has a special meaning. It was a pregnancy clue!

The same subtle pattern was apparent in Kate Middleton a week before Kensington Palace announced her pregnancy with a baby Charlotte.

Although this is all just a fun internet theory, and no one from the palace has confirmed this in regards to Kate or Meghan, Meghan showed up with a new hairstyle some weeks before the pregnancy news. Coincidence? Well, it's up to you!

One expert's opinion

September 24 wasn't the only time the Duchess of Sussex left her hair straight, but recently she has been spotted with similar hairdos, as on Remembrance Sunday's evening with the whole Royal family. 

A celebrity hair expert, James Johnson, shared his theory:

I think the reason Meghan has cut layers into her hair is that she's pregnant. Your hair cycle stops when you're pregnant which means the hair you would usually lose on a daily basis doesn't shed until you give birth - when you lose it all in one go.

Moreover, James suggested the high possibility of Meghan following Kate's footsteps about changing hairstyle to the core after the baby arrives.

I wonder if she may even follow in Kate's footsteps, who cut her hair quite dramatically shorter after giving birth to Louis this year. Meghan may do the same for quick and easy maintenance when she gives birth.

The majority of women want to feel free, comfortable and empowered during pregnancy and after childbirth. Hence, it's just a matter of time until Meghan does something unusual in 2019. 

Wait, another reason?

Meghan sometimes prefers to make a messy bun while in public. Though it's deemed to be 'sloppy' by the rules of Royal protocol, it has inspired lots of feelings. It's even become the Duchess's signature style. 

Dr. Anna Akbari, a sociologist, image consultant, and personal style guru, reflected on a special reason behind the no-fuss hairstyle. 

There’s a sort of knowingness that you have to have as an audience member to appreciate that. The way we communicate is a full-spectrum, multi-sensory communication. Bottom line —[Markle is] aware she's sending signals. I don't think anything that she's doing is haphazard.

Meghan knows her duties and understands the expectations within the Royal family, but at the same time, she wants to show her own identity and uniqueness. 

I would believe that this may be Markle's way of saying, 'If I'm not going to beat her at her own game, I might as well win in my own.

Meghan Markle has diverged a bit from all royal rules and traditions and is seemingly creating her own principles and rules, which still don't go too far beyond the pale. But let's admit that her hairstyles are never messy or weird, even if it's a simple bun.
