The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and Harry are expecting their first child this year. The couple is said to be expecting their little one in late April or early May.
Apparently, the soon-to-be royal mother’s ‘thumbs’ may reveal a lot about the birth of her first child. Namely, that she will have an “early and quick labour”.
Confusing? Well, pictures from the 37-year-old’s visit to the National Theatre last month appear to show that she has double-jointed fingers. This means that her joints are “hyper-mobile”. In other words, Meghan is able to move her fingers beyond the normal range of movement without it hurtling.
Strange, isn’t it?
Dr Adam Taylor, an expert in anatomy at Lancaster Medical School, told The Royal UK that hyper-mobility can help people do yoga. An, yoga is one thing the Duchess of Sussex is a massive fan of. In fact, yoga is something that may make it easier for her to give birth to her baby.

Dr Adam Taylor explained, saying: “The ligaments of the pelvis, which help hold the pelvis together, are believed to loosen over pregnancy. So, any more mobility within these from having hyper-mobility may help a mother deliver her baby easily. If you’re already hyper-mobile, then pregnancy can take more of a toll on you and your body”.
Dr Adam Taylor added, saying:-
“It’s not uncommon to have issues with pelvic girdle pain. And in more extreme cases it could cause premature labour. Due to how fragile the connective tissue can be, hyper-mobility has shown that there can be a connection with early labour”.
“If the Duchess of Sussex suffers from hyper-mobility, then it’s likely her care providers will have talked to her about it and looked at all the options. This could mean anything. It can go from extra joint support like a pelvic belt to planning for an earlier arrival”.
Well, there is more to the story.

The UK’s top scientific hand and fingerprint analyst, Helen Elizabeth Evans, said she also believes Meghan’s flexible thumbs may lead to her having a shorter labour. She added, saying:-
“If she is hyper-flexible, it may make giving birth easier than it would be for someone who is naturally quite tense. But, there are too many factors that could impact her birth experience that is not at all indicated in the hands”.
Well, when the time comes for the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan’s delivery, we hope and pray that all goes well with the mother-to-be and the new royal baby.
