MEGHAN Markle is expecting her first royal baby and the Duchess of Sussex has drawn attention for proudly holding her blossoming bump in public.

Meghan revealed her growing baby bump on Monday night as she stepped out for the British Fashion Awards. The mother-to-be cradled her baby bump with both hands as she took to the stage to present an award to her wedding dress designer Clare Waight Keller.

But the move prompted some negative comments on social media questioning why Meghan is always holding her bump.

However an expert has revealed that Meghan’s loving pose could be because she is feeling protective of her unborn baby.

Speaking to Femail, Liz Halliday, deputy head of midwifery at Private Midwives, said: “At public events, Meghan may feel more protective of her baby and thus cradle her bump more than usual.

“Mothers may feel that stroking their bump calms the baby in some situations and during public events Meghan may be either consciously or sub-consciously attempting to do this.”

And another expert added that the move could be positive for the baby.

Katherine Graves, founder of KG Hypnobirthing, said: “Meghan is practicing responsive natural parenting and touching, speaking and cradling her bump will be very beneficial for the baby.”

At the glitzy Royal Albert Hall event Meghan presented the womenswear designer of the year award to Ms Waight Keller, artistic director at Givenchy.

The 37-year-old wore a one-shouldered black Givenchy gown which showed off her prominent bump.

Taking centre stage at the event, the Duchess held one or both hands on her stomach as she presented the award.

In a speech Meghan said: “It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers, in my new home in the UK.”

It comes after Meghan revealed her pregnancy in October as she landed in Sydney for a Commonwealth tour with Prince Harry, just five months after the pair married.

The parents-to-be visited Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, with Meghan already starting to cradle her baby bump.

And Meghan only has a few more months to go before her little one is due in spring 2019.

Ahead of the birth, Meghan and Harry are moving from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
