Meghan Markle cradles her growing baby bump at Royal Variety Performance

After a busy few weeks on their first ever royal tour abroad, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been taking some time out, enjoying a slightly less hectic schedule since their return home at the end of October.

But yesterday, on the six month anniversary of their wedding, the pair attended one of the most glamorous events of the royal calendar – the Royal Variety Performance in London.

It was the Duchess of Sussexes first time at the popular event, which is attended by members of the royal family every year.

And for fans, it meant another rare look at Meghan’s growing baby bump, which was noticeably bigger than the last time she was seen out in public last week, for two Remembrance Day services.

Throughout the course of the evening, Meghan was pictured continually placing a protective hand over her stomach, highlighting how much it has grown over the last few weeks.

It’s thought that the Duchess is around five months pregnant now, with she and husband Prince Harry expecting their new arrival in the spring of 2018.

Meghan’s exact due date hasn’t yet been announced, and likely won’t be – so fans will probably be standing by in spring for any official announcement from the palace.

At the Royal Variety Performance, Meghan also met with some of the world’s biggest stars for the very first time, including Take That, who opened and closed the show, Andrea Bocelli, and the cast of the musical Hamilton – a show she and Harry have seen twice now, together.

The Duchess of Sussex chose to wear one of her go-to designers, Safiyaa, for the glamorous night of performances – opting for a bespoke monochrome strapless top and black skirt.

And although the Duke and Duchess celebrated their six month wedding anniversary together at the Royal Variety, it was recently revealed that they won’t be together to mark one whole year since they announced their engagement.

Prince Harry will be heading to Zambia on Monday 26th for a whirlwind, two-day trip to celebrate UK-Zambia relations, at the request of the Foreign Office.

Meghan will not be joining her husband – hopefully leaving her some time to relax and unwind as she nears the last few months of her pregnancy.
