Meghan Markle has come a long way since starring on Suits.

The former actress, 37, who welcomed her first child, a boy, with Prince Harry this May 6, stunned the world with her pregnancy style for a full nine months!

One fan-favorite was a glittery $5,600 party maternity gown which she wore on a royal outing.

Eagle-eyed royal watchers suspected she was expecting before the Palace announced Meghan's pregnancy in October, and it didn't take long for Kensington Palace to confirm the news. In their initial statement, they said Meghan would welcome her royal baby in late April, but RadarOnline.com readers know she was overdue, and almost had to have an induced pregnancy!

As Radar previously reported, Meghan has not had the easiest time since her entrance into the royal family. Apart from continuously feuding with sister-in-law Kate Middleton, she's been deemed a "diva Duchess," by royal insiders. Though family members have not spoken of the rumors, at least four of their employees have quit since Meghan married Harry, 34, last May.

Meghan has broken royal protocol various times with her style. The former Hollywood star was caught wearing black nail polish on a royal outing, and has various times stepped out in black dresses and pants. Fans know the royals often opt for pastel skirts and nude, barely-there makeup.

Despite the controversies surrounding her fashion, it's clear she wore pregnancy quite well.

Scroll through Radar's gallery for more on the evolution of Meghan's baby bump and style throughout the months.
