Pregnant Meghan Markle called a 'fat lady' by doting pensioner

Leave it to Meghan Markle to make a budget buy look like a million bucks.

In fact, earlier this week Meghan revealed how far along in her pregnancy she is (6 months!) and which means she'll be due around the end of April/beginning of May!

Described on H&M's website as the MAMA Fine-knit dress, the light colour worn by Markle's already sold out following its appearance in public.

Duchess Meghan Markle made an official royal visit today (January 16) to an animal rescue organization and met with lots of volunteers and workers at the organization.

When the woman said, "Lovely lady, you are!"

Meghan was visiting the animal welfare charity Mayhew in London when she was introduced to an elderly lady called Peggy, who gets visits from their Therapaws therapy dogs at the care home where she lives. It's hard to make out exactly what the woman is saying, but it sounds like, "May the good Lord only bless you".


Last week the animal charity Mayhew was announced as one of four charity patronages that Meghan has taken on that reflect her passions and interests.

Luckily, Meghan Markle was gracious about the comment and simply responded, "I'll take it".

What do you think of Meghan's outfit?

"She asked about Minnie's story, what she's like and if she's up for adoption?"

The dress also didn't stop Markle from petting the dogs in the animal shelter while she visited.
