Meghan Markle May Have Been Dropping Hints About Her Baby Boy For Months

Secret's out — the whole wide world is smitten with Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex is effortlessly charming, living a real life fairytale and doling out a never-ending supply of adorable couple photos for us to swoon over. But honestly, we're mostly interested in the 114 clothing items the new mom schlepped with her on her first royal tour – and all the outfits we've seen before and after that trek. Fan or not, it's impossible to deny that the former Suits actress has got one hell of a wardrobe. From the crisp white dress she wore to at last reveal her baby bump to all the blue Givenchy coat she donned to hide it, Prince Harry's beloved has officially become an international style icon.

To welcome the royal baby boy, we went ahead and rounded up every notable outfit, maternity and otherwise, that Meghan Markle has sported throughout her ascension into Britain's top family — and trust us when we say, there are a lot. But in doing so, we couldn't help but notice a certain Twitter theory: have all the blue looks that Meghan's been sporting throughout her pregnancy been a subtle hint to her new baby's sex? Though some may argue that associating blue with the male sex is pretty archaic, tons of people think Meghan was using fashion to send a message about her new baby boy.
Not convinced? Us either. But Twitter is right about one thing, blue is definitely Meghan Markle's color. Check out all her maternity looks (& beyond) below and see just how many something blues she wore through it all.
