A glowing Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has shown off her growing baby bump for a night out alongside husband Prince Harry.
The 37-year-old, who first announced made the announcement that she was expecting while in Australia last month, made her debut at the Royal Variety Performance 2018 at The London Palladium on Monday evening.
The former actress was all smiles as she arrived at the star-studded event and happily waved and interacted with fans who had been waiting for her arrival. The Royal Variety Performance takes place every year in aid of the Royal Variety charity, of which the Queen is a Patron.
Money raised at the event helps entertainers throughout the United Kingdom in need of help and assistance as the result of old age, ill-health, or hard times in general.
For the outing, Meghan opted for a sparkly black and white dress that showed off her growing baby bump. The sleeveless sequined frock was complete with a complimentary halter neck neckline and featured a long train for the elegant event. As always, she accessorised perfectly with a black bag, matching stilettos and a sparkly pair of earrings.
Meanwhile, a handsome Harry opted for a smart tuxedo and matching black tie and he walked arm in arm with his loving wife. In a video shared on the Kensington Palace Twitter page, Meghan could be seen walking the red carpet with Harry and receiving a stunning bunch of flowers from an adoring fan.
The Royal Variety Performance 2018 is televised across the United Kingdom and other countries around the world and is always attended by a senior member of the royal family. Prince Harry made his debut in 2015, while it was his wife’s very first time at the event.
Royalists will recall the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the guests of honour last year, while Queen Elizabeth has attended the show 39 times in the past. This year’s event is hosted by actor Greg Davies, while there will be an array of performances by Andrea Bocelli and his son Matteo, Take That, George Ezra, Rick Astley, and this year’s Britain’s Got Talent winner, The Lost Voice Guy.
Meghan and Harry’s last public appearance was last week when they joined their other family members at the Armistice Day commemorations in London. Joined by brother-in-law Prince William, sister-in-law Catherine as well as Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Edward and Prince Michael, Meghan was there to witness Queen Elizabeth lay flowers on the grave of the unknown warrior.
Armistice Day 2018 marked 100 years since the Armistice was signed, ending the First World War. Mum-to-be Meghan showed off her growing baby bump in a striking long-sleeved blue top, complete with a boatneck neckline and chunky buttons. It matched perfectly with her skirt and hat and even complimented the blue suit 34-year-old Prince Harry wore for the evening.
