Another big royal reunion is coming sooner than you think, and we’ll get a glimpse of Meghan Markle’s nearly eight-month bump (probably covered in some designer sheath, of course).
Kensington Palace revealed (per royal correspondent Rebecca English) that Queen Elizabeth, as head of the Commonwealth, will hold services at Westminster Abbey on March 11, 2019. Prince Harry, Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton will all attend. The second Fab Four sighting in one week, after not seeing them together since Christmas?! Best. Week. Ever.
The Duchess of Sussex is due to give birth in “late April or early May,” she told well-wishers back in January, meaning she’ll be only about a month (or up to seven weeks) from giving birth to Baby Sussex. The craziest part? Middleton was also about eight months pregnant on Commonwealth Day last year, and had Prince Louis about a month later on April 23, 2018.
Kensington Palace also revealed that Prince Harry and Markle will attend a special Commonwealth Day event at Canada House on March 11, and we’re betting the mama-to-be is thrilled. Considering she used to live in Toronto, Canada holds a special place in the duchess's heart.
“The event will showcase and celebrate the diverse community of young Canadians living in London and around the UK,” the palace wrote on Twitter. Sounds right up Meg’s alley, no?
Last year, during Commonwealth Day services, cameras famously caught Markle singing “God Save the Queen” in her white Amanda Wakeley coat (the same one she wore today at Prince Charles’s 50th Investiture Anniversary celebrations).
We’re sure to see the same heartfelt singing this year from the duchess (as long as Baby Sussex doesn’t kick the breath out of her, that is).
