The Duchess of Sussex has shown off her baby bump whilst taking part in a Vax Live charity concert over the weekend.

Meghan Markle made her first television appearance since her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in March, in which she detailed race claims against the royal family.

The former Suits star—who is currently pregnant with her second child—filmed the Vax Live cameo in the back garden of the couple's US mansion and spoke freely about the impact the global Covid-19 pandemic has had on women across the world.

She said, "As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it's critical that our recovery prioritizes the health, safety, and success of everyone, but particularly women who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.

"Women, and especially women of color, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out."

Making a sweet gesture to her blossoming baby bump, Meghan went on to say, "My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter. It's a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world. 

"When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward."

The couple are both supporting Vax Live - a global initiative, part of the Global Citizen's Recovery Plan to put on a series of events to help end covid-19 for everyone.  

They are campaigning for vaccinations to be equally distributed around the world and at a fair price so they are accessible for all. 

It is the first time royal watchers have seen Meghan in public since she opted to stay at home when Prince Harry flew back to the UK for his grandfather's funeral. During his time back in the UK, Harry is reported to have stayed at the couple's former home, Frogmore Cottage

Doctors advised heavily pregnant Meghan not to make the flight and it was a decision the Queen reportedly fully supported. 

The Duchess, did, however, pay her respects to Prince Philip privately. Meghan sent a thoughtful wreath after Prince Philip passed away, with a handwritten note to mark the Prince's passing. 

During the service, we saw many of the wonderful wreaths that family and friends sent to honor the late Prince.

Among the wreaths, which lay just below Prince Philip's coffin was the beautiful handmade wreath that Meghan and Harry sent - made up of purple and blue locally sourced flowers, by Willow Crossley - one of the Duke and Duchesses favorite florists. 

Some of the flowers included also had a meaning - acanthus mollis (bear's breeches) is the national flower of Greece, which is where the Duke was born, while the flowers eryngium (sea holly) were also included, which gave a nod to his time in the Royal Marines. The wreath also had a handwritten note from the Duchess.
