The Duchess of Sussex chose to share the intimate snap as the Pacific royal tour came to an end.

In the picture, the Duchess of Sussex is at first barely noticeable beneath enormous redwood trees and massive ferns that tower above the forest floor.

But sunlight streaming through the canopy leads your eye to the tiny figure of Meghan, cradling her baby bump and smiling wistfully toward the camera.

The moment is made all the more touching by the fact that her husband himself took the picture.

It was posted to Kensington Palace’s official Instagram account with the caption “The rain the refreshes the parched ground, is made up of single drops,” a quote by Kate Sheppard—born in Liverpool in 1848, she went on to become the leader of the female suffrage movement in New Zealand.

Taken on the final day of the duke and duchess’ time in the southern hemisphere, the photo marked the end of a whirlwind 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand that was kicked off with the shock announcement that Meghan is expecting the couple’s first baby.

The message accompanying the picture read, “Thank you New Zealand for the most wonderful last week of our tour. It has been a privilege to meet so many friendly Kiwis.

“Australia, Fiji, Tonga and NZ—we leave feeling inspired and reminded of how every single one of us can make a difference.”

Royal reporter Omid Scobie gave some background on the intimate snap, tweeting, “At the end of our last tour engagement, Harry and Meghan walked ahead of their team, security and myself (who was the pool reporter). We were in the beautiful Whakarewarewa Forest and they wanted a moment to themselves.

“This photo, taken by Harry, was the result of that moment.”

Their baby is due in spring 2019—and what a lovely snapshot of his or her mother to treasure in future.
