“I just made it up,” the confessed of her now infamous Instagram comment.
In case you missed it, the Australian singer-songwriter shared a photo with the Duchess of Sussex, writing: "She was such a sweetheart. I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant! What a trooper."
Speaking on The Project she revealed: “I read somewhere that people had worked out that she was three-to-four months pregnant because she said she was due in the Spring.
“So I just wrote that without even thinking, because I thought, ‘everyone knows she’s about four months’ pregnant,’ and then it was all over newspapers in England and France. Yeah no, we weren’t hanging out like best buds and she wasn’t telling me her deepest secrets.”
Despite the slip-up, Higgins was clearly impressed by the royals.
“She was just asking about Luna and how it’s all going and you know, she was super sweet,” she recalled.
“And then we met Harry afterwards and he squeezed Luna’s little chubby legs and said ‘who’s this little cutie’ and he made some joke about never having being seen in the same room as Ed Sheeran because they’re both redheads — he was charming!”
