Meghan Markle Was Shown a Baby Crib During Her Birkenhead Visit, and Her Reaction Was Priceless

While at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first joint public engagement of 2019, in Birkenhead, the duchess of Sussex donned a violet purple dress and cherry red coat and heels while cradling her six-months' pregnant baby bump. And, yep, Meghan Markle just schooled us all in bright, bold color-mixing. But she was also caught a bit off-guard when her and Harry's visit included checking out a baby crib (perhaps they even took it home since they're obviously in the market for one).

The expecting parents visited the town, located over a four hour drive northwest of London in Merseyside, England, on Monday. Their visit included meeting local organizations that support veterans and work to alleviate hunger in the community.

One of the couple's stops included a non-profit supermarket, called Number 7, where a wicker baby crib was on display. The duchess presented another expecting mother with the basket, which was full of baby goods. Judging by the photos, Markle is way more thrilled about the cute little basket than the recipient. (Although, we know this is her photogenic secret, of course).

Who are we kidding, though?! Markle's baby crib will be fit for a (literal) king...or queen.
