Pregnant Meghan Markle shows growing bump in classic black at BBC Remembrance Festival

MEGHAN Markle displayed her ever-growing baby bump in an elegant black dress as she and husband Prince Harry attended the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance to mark 100 years since the end of World War 1.


With her due date drawing closer, the pregnant American looked elegant at her first Remembrance Day event as a member of the royal family. Dressed in a stunning black coat which had a fitted black ribbon she tied around her growing bump, she looked glowing with natural make-up for the emotional event. The Duchess of Sussex, 37, paid her respects with her husband and other royals including the Queen, who stoically led the clan into the event, as well as Prince Charles who will celebrate his 70th birthday in four days. The Prince of Wales was joined by wife Camilla and his older son Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

Their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis did not attend.

The Festival of Remembrance is an annual event but this year marks 100 years since the end of WW1.
