A source close to Prince Harry's wife said to HollywoodLife:

She's been spending most of her time at home in recent months because of the pandemic, but also to avoid the news of her pregnancy breaking/

The source added:

And when she went out, she always wore overcoats to hide her bump.

This insider continued:

She has a very small circle of friends and people who trust her team, but apart from a few of them, nobody knew about it.

It's obvious that in the midst of a health crisis, where social distancing is key, it's easier to hide a pregnancy. Moreover, living in Los Angeles helped the couple keep this secret for as long as possible. The source finally concluded:

With such a huge property and the magic of videoconferencing, she hardly saw anyone, so it was easy to hide her second pregnancy.

The royal family is growing. On February 9th, a few days before the announcement of Meghan Markle's pregnancy, Princess Eugenie also gave birth to her first child. On Saturday, February 20th, Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter even unveiled the name of her little boy, paying a beautiful tribute to her grandfather Prince Philip, who is currently hospitalised in London:

We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

To lift the veil on this mystery, Princess Eugenie shared a series of adorable photos of her new family.
