The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is absolutely blessed with gorgeous hair.
And over the years her hairstyle and texture have changed, most prominently after her pregnancy.
Meghan Markle gave birth to her second child with Prince Harry on 4th June 2021 and named their daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. The name is a tribute to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II and mother, Princess Diana.
Whether it’s up in her favourite hairstyle – the bun – or whether it’s down, her hair always looks picture perfect. And considering she was the most Googled person at least 3 times in the past decade, it’s a good job because she’s one of the most photographed royals around the world.

The Schwarzkopf ambassador, who has tended to the tresses of Emma Louise Connolly, Poppy Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse, told us Meghan noticed that her “hair felt thicker during pregnancy,” and it’s “not because you’re growing more but you have more oestrogen in your systems so the growing phase is longer, and you shed less.”
With this in mind, Jack told us that Meghan loved this period because while you’re pregnant, you don’t lose much hair” but it’s not necessarily long-lasting. “Post breastfeeding a lot of women lose their hair again and Meghan Markle experienced the same. This phenomenon is perfectly normal but because she was not used to it, she worried about her hair loss initially.”
Hair can go through other changes, Jack tells us. “Sometimes curly hair goes straight and vice versa. If you’re taking pre-natal vitamins with iron, your hair can go darker (it was not a problem for Meghan but a bit scary for blondes!)”
