Mama Markle attended the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie of York on Oct. 12 and many proclaimed she stole the thunder with pregnancy rumors.  Markle refused to take off her jacket throughout the ceremony and looked a little heavier.

“I’m telling you now Meghan Markle is pregnant,” Twitter user @rebekkaarnold wrote.

I stayed up just to see what Meghan Markle is wearing and if she looks pregnant. She’s wore a long blue jacket that she didn’t take off in the Church. Could she be hiding something? 😳#RoyalWedding
