    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first baby within a few months. While some joined the Meghan-mania following the royal wedding in May 2018 and the happy announcements, trying to guess whether the child will be a boy or a girl, others went on the offensive and accused the Duchess of lying.

    Twitter users are scrutinizing US actress-turned-royal Meghan Markle’s recent photos, striving to prove that she is faking her pregnancy. Conspiracy theorists who are sure that her baby bump is nothing but a lie, as well as apparent haters, are sharing their reasoning or just trashing the Duchess of Sussex with a new hashtag derived from Brexit: #Megxit.

    ​Some suspected that it was nothing but a pillow under her designer dresses in an attempt to fool the world.

    ​There were those who slammed Markle for “her fake PR” and playing the victim card.

    ​Even her clothing choice and feet incurred criticism.

    ​However, the claims were not left without a response from other Twitter users, who stood up for the duchess, slamming online haters and the gossiping press.

    ​Some even suggested that legal action should be taken.

    ​Kensington Palace, the official royal residence in London, made an official announcement about a new royal baby in October 2018 following speculation prompted by Meghan Markle’s loose-fitting, buttoned-up designer coat at Princess Eugenie's wedding on 12 October.

    "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the spring of 2019", the palace said in a statement.

    However, speculation about a royal rift between Meghan Markle and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton emerged at the end of last year have cast a shadow over the happy expectations and given the royals some unwanted media attention.

    Numerous reports in UK tabloids have claimed that the royal family has been torn apart by a family feud. One suggested that American actress-turned-duchess Markle left Kate Middleton in tears over her demanding nature during a dress fitting for Middleton's daughter, Princess Charlotte.

    It has also been rumoured that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace, where they have been living alongside Prince William's family since they became engaged in 2017, to Frogmore Cottage at the Windsor Estate. In early December, The Sun also reported that Meghan and Harry turned down an invitation to spend Christmas with Kate and William; instead staying at the Queen's Norfolk estate in Sandringham. However, they still joined Prince William and his wife for a Christmas Day service.
