What this photo actually tells us about Meghan Markle

Watch the full episode 10 of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box,‘ here from Friday 26 October.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are more than halfway through their tour of Australia, which started with a bang when the couple announced they’re expecting their first child.

Meghan had already sparked rumours she was pregnant hours before the news broke, when she stepped off the plane carrying purple folders in front of her stomach – something many had assumed was designed to hide her bump.

But according to one royal expert, the photo reveals more about the Duchess and how seriously she is taking life as a royal.

Meghan really likes to get things right, I think she’s really conscientious about it’, Victoria Murphy tells Yahoo UK’s The Royal Box.

“We see her with those folders, we know she really likes to read her briefs and she wants to go in there and not be winging it.”

The Duchess, who is around four months pregnant, has cut back her schedule slightly in order to pace herself throughout the busy 16-day tour.

Murphy adds that Meghan might be putting pressure on herself to be so brilliant at knowing everything.

PR guru Nick Ede says that Meghan’s acting training has helped her.

He says: “With Suits they got a script that night and they had to do the show the next day.

“She really knows how to absorb all that information very well.”
