After the couple announced they are expecting another child together, they appeared in a pre-recorded video for Spotify's Stream On event, marking the first time they had been seen publicly since their baby news. In the footage, the parents sat side by side on a couch, the former actress donning a $3,490 Oscar de la Renta dress embellished with a leafy flower and citrus print.
However, it was not just the pricy designer garment that grabbed fans' attention. The expectant California native also accessorized with her sleeveless ensemble, sporting her engagement ring, wedding band, a Cartier love bracelet and watch on her left hand and a pink ring prominently displayed on her right-hand middle finger. The bauble—a design from conscious and sustainable Canadian jewelry brand Ecksand—features a pink sapphire which naturally spurred some chatter from eagle-eyed fans on social media.
One Instagram comment read, "Meghan PINK sapphire cocktail ring ….. clue….. pink for a girl." Another echoed, "Let me be the second to say they are having a BABY GIRL." A third mused, "Maybe she's having a baby girl."
However, as someone else pointed out, pink was not the only color Markle incorporated in her look. "Pink ring," another comment read, "blue dress." Whatever the case, the royals are certainly no strangers to speculation surrounding nearly every aspect of their life.
As for this pair—who Queen Elizabeth II recently announced will not be returning as working members of the royal family—Prince Harry weighed in on the announcement during a pre-taped interview segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden that aired Thursday, Feb. 25.
"It was never walking away—it was stepping back, rather than stepping down," Harry clarified to James Corden. "It was a really difficult environment, as I think a lot of people saw. We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health. I was like, This is toxic. So I did what any husband and what any father would do, is like, I need to get my family out of here."
"But we never walked away," he reiterated. "And as far as I'm concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing, but my life is public service, so wherever I am in the world, it's going to be the same thing."
