EVERYONE got up in arms after Meghan Markle wore a dress yesterday with a white tag sticking out of the hem.
But a real expert has just revealed something much more interesting about the garment.
The duchess shone with the bold red dress of AU626 from the British label Self Portrait during her visit to Tonga yesterday, but the eagle-eyed fans noticed that a white label peeked out from the edge of her custom red dress:
But here is something more interesting: according to Hello! The magazine's actual editor, Emily Nash, asked for the dress to have a flexible seam when it was designed in April, suggesting they knew well in advance that a real baby might have been on the way.
"(Meghan) had a little entourage of people who were taking care of her, and the label was a very unfortunate mistake," Nash said. dawn this morning.
"For me, the most interesting thing about all this was that the Creative Director was asked to design it in April with a flexible seam, suggesting that they knew that a Baby Sussex could be in process."

Kensington Palace announced Meghan's pregnancy on October 15, ending days of speculation. They are expecting a baby in the spring of the United Kingdom, which begins on March 20 and will continue until June 21.
ROYALS DON TRADITIONAL GARLANDS FOR VISIT TO THE MARKET
The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex dressed in beautiful garlands of red flowers and red skirts and cream at the Fa'onelua Convention Center in the second of their tour of Tonga.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited a display of handicrafts, mats and cover fabrics from Tonga.
The royal couple walked hand in hand to see the crafts on the last day of their visit to Tonga.
Just before this, they saw a beautiful solo dance, known as Ta'ulunga, at a YOuth National Event at the Fa'oemlua Convention Center.
Early in the morning, Meghan and Harry arrived at the San Jorge government building to meet with the Prime Minister of Tonga, Akilisi Pohiva and other cabinet ministers.
The Duchess was shining in a forest-and-white $ 1600 striped Martin Grant dress, the second time she has worn the Australian designer on her 16-day tour of the South Pacific.
She combined the dress with the green Manolo Blahnik shoes and the beige Prada clutch. The duchess also wore Pave Cubiz Zirconia earrings and had her hair pulled back in an elegant ponytail.
Prince Harry looked as smart as ever for the reunion in a gray-blue suit with navy blue suede boots and a light blue tie.
Later today, Prince Harry will present the Commonwealth Canopy at Tupou College, give a speech and tour the forest. Reportedly, Meghan will not join him here, presumably as a preliminary measure against mosquitoes.
Then, the couple will join again to bid farewell to King Tupou VI together.
Later tonight, Meghan and Harry will return to Sydney to open the Australian Geographic Society Awards.
THE SENCIAL TRIBUTE FROM MEGHAN TO DIANA
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised royalty fans during a night reception and dinner at the Royal Palace of Tonga the night before.
The couple seemed ready to walk down the aisle again, with Meghan Markle in a long dress down to the floor and ornaments of silver beads by the nightwear label Theia, and Prince Harry in a black suit.

But you may have missed the second call back to her glamorous royal wedding: an aquamarine ring from Princess Diana's jewelry collection, which Meghan wore as a tribute to her mother-in-law.
The ring, believed to have been a gift from Prince Harry, was created in 1997 by Asprey. It has an aquamarine of emerald cut and small solitaire diamonds, and is set in 24 carat yellow gold.
The duchess used the ring for the first time during the reception of her royal wedding, so it only seemed appropriate to use it for another event similar to a marriage.
The royal couple met King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau'u for the special dinner.
