Meghan Markle’s dress designer has hinted he knew about the royal baby before the rest of the world did.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a striking floor-length white dress to attend a reception and dinner with the King and Queen of Tonga.
The incredible dress is by New York based fashion label THEIA under Irish creative director Don O’Neill.
Don, 52, has been speaking about his experience with the dress after he was reportedly contacted by Meghan’s stylist last month.

The designer said he sent the dress to the palace within two days, but was asked for it to be remade with ‘extra seam allowance’.
"We knew immediately why this extra allowance was required, but Mum’s the word," he told FEMAIL.
It wasn’t until several weeks later that the news of the couple’s pregnancy was announced to the world, so it would appear the dress designer had to keep the secret to himself.
The brand is inspired by the Greek Goddess Theia and the dress itself featured cap sleeves and beaded detailing on the shoulders.
The website states: "Inspired by the Greek Goddess THEIA, this evening wear, bridal and day dress collection was created to bring out every woman’s inner goddess.
"One of the original Titans, THEIA who ruled during the Greek Golden Age, possessed the incredible power of light which radiated from her sparkling eyes.
"All that she gazed upon glittered, becoming luminous and radiant.
"She imbued gold and silver with their shine. She gave diamonds their fire and rubies and emeralds their sparkle.
"Her three children; Helios the sun, Celene the moon, and Eos the dawn, all continue to bring light in to the world everyday.
"The woman who wears THEIA will be filled with confidence knowing her dress fits wonderfully and looks beautiful on her, thus naturally allowing her inner goddess to shine."
