Bookies predict Meghan and Harry will announce second pregnancy in coming weeks

She has been re-wearing her maternity clothes…

They became first-time parents to baby Archie Harrison back in May.

But bookmakers have this week slashed the odds of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announcing a second pregnancy by the end of the year.

According to Bookmakers.tv, the odds of the pair revealing they're expecting a second baby before the end of 2019 have fallen from 4/6 to 1/5.

That means if you place a £5 bet, you'll win just £1, which could indicate that those in the betting know think it's highly likely to happen soon.

When betting odds drop, it's usually because of a sharp spike in confidence that an event – be it the winner of a horse race or a royal baby announcement – is going to happen.

Experts say the sudden surge in betting on an imminent baby announcement could have been brought on by the fact that Meghan has recently been re-wearing some of her maternity outfits.

During their recent African tour, Meghan recycled a shirt dress that she first wore in Tonga when three months pregnant.

She also re-wore her striped Martin Grant maxi dress, that she debuted while pregnant during her royal tour of Australia.
