Kensington Palace has told us the baby is expected in spring, but have remained tight-lipped about the exact arrival date.
But one beauty expert has shared she believes there is a way we can predict the due date… and it’s down to Meghan’s hair.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Jane Mayhead, Senior Trichology Consultant at The Private Clinic of Harley Street, said: “In a number of recent images of Meghan, her hair certainly appears much fuller than before pregnancy and it’s possible that this is due to changing hormone levels.
“The increased levels of hormones during pregnancy can cause the growth cycle of the hair to increase, meaning the hair is less frequently renewed and replaced at the site of the follicle and women will experience thicker and shiner hair.”
Jane advised that lots of pregnant women find their hair becomes more volumes two thirds of the way through their pregnancy.
Jane added: “I tend to find that most women will experience some level of increased volume by around the six month mark.”
She also said that hair grows around 1cm a month, and this increases marginally during pregnancy, when the growth cycle changes and there is reduced hair fall.
Pregnancy isn’t the only thing that could be affecting Meghan’s hair, however.
The Duchess of Sussex could have altered her hair care products to protect her unborn baby.
Jane explained: “There are, of course, other possibilities to consider. It is highly likely that Meghan may also be avoiding putting harsh chemicals in her hair.”
The hair consultant also explained that Meghan may have changed her calorie intake and diet, especially as many mums increase their intake of folic acid, which can also stabilise hair growth patterns.

If Jane’s prediction is correct, Meghan could have her baby in very late February or early March.
The palace may have confirmed the baby is “due in spring”, but many royal experts are predicting a March or April birth date.
Some have now been speculating the baby could be born on March 29, the date the UK is due to formally leave the EU.
Currently Ladbrokes has the odds for a Brexit Day baby at 20/1.
March is currently the bookies’ favourite month, with odds for an April birth being evens, and a May baby being 10/1.
The increased levels of hormones during pregnancy can cause the growth cycle of the hair to increase, meaning the hair is less frequently renewed and replaced at the site of the follicle and women will experience thicker and shiner hair.
The Sun’s Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews speculated that we could see the royal baby being born in “March or early April”.
She said: “All we know for sure is that Meghan is due in the spring. When Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess was pregnant, their official announcement said she was expecting a baby in the spring of 2019.
“At the time many royal watchers assumed she was only just 12 weeks pregnant, meaning she was due the end of April/start of May next year.
“But I was told she was much further along than everyone thought, putting her about three weeks earlier at the start of April.
“The recent pictures of Meghan with a blooming baby bump have left many speculating that she’s due as early as February.
“In the flesh Meghan is very petite and every woman carries babies differently, so I’d expect her to have a large bump quite early on.
“If I were a betting woman, I’d still stay early April. But as we all know babies can come at any time.”
Since Meghan announced she was pregnant at the start of the Royal Tour Down Under, fans have been on baby watch ever since.
The happy news came nearly five months to the day after the pair were married in a lavish ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor.
It was pointed out on the tour that the bump looked noticeably larger in the evenings than in the day, and there might be a reason for this.
And eagle-eyed fans claim Meghan’s new diamond ring could be proof she is having a baby in April.
