Meghan Markle and Harry 'blocked' from UK return says expert
The Duchess announced she is pregnant earlier this month. Prince Harry and Meghan made a surprise appearance at a Spotify live event to promote Archewell Audio, their podcast.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this was made via video from their home in Santa Barbara.
During the event, Meghan was spotted wearing a bright pink sapphire ring made by Ecksand.
The jewellery, which features a rose-cut pink sapphire, currently retails for $1,339 (£945).
Royal fans posted their reactions to the ring on Instagram.

A third posted: “Was that her subtle way of saying I’d having a GIRL?”
One other Instagram user simply posted “IT’S A GIRL!!!!” followed by a number of pink love hearts.

Royal fans suggested Meghan's pink sapphire ring was a hint
The Sussexes’ have not publicly revealed their baby’s gender and there is no suggestion from royal insiders that the ring was intended as a hint.
In May 2019, Meghan gave birth to Archie Mountbatten-Harrison, her first son.
Tragically she went on to suffer a miscarriage last July.
Announcing the news on February 14 a spokesperson for the couple said: “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother.
