Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Meghan Markle is just like us. In fact, all the royals are. Everybody puts their pants on one leg at a time, right? Well, this Meghan Markle baby kicking video really reminds us of how—despite the cameras and royal events—Duchess of Sussex is really just an excited a mom-to-be.
Markle is due in Spring 2019, and though she’s nearing the end of her pregnancy, she hasn’t stopped making public appearances beside her husband, Prince Harry. The other day, a fan posted a video of Markle beside her prince in Bristol on Friday. In the video, Markle can be seen taking in a quick breath as—we think—baby Sussex kicked! The popular fan account @harry_meghan_updates wrote, “WOW! Look at this! The precious moment Baby Sussex kicked Meghan’s lungs out of her 😍 He/she really wants to come out to meet us people! No wonder mummy needs to hold to calm 😊”
It really is a short but sweet moment. Amid the chaos and excitement of the press conference, Markle delights in a reminder of her little baby girl or boy. Warning: If you watch the video too many times, it might make you choke up. We can absolutely see why it took the Duchess’s breath away momentarily. She’s just a mom who’s enjoying her first pregnancy.
Markle also looked stunning in the patterned bold print she was wearing. Though she normally sticks to a warm, neutral palette, the 37-year-old sported a more modern look in deep-green to-the-knee boots and a black “enchanted forrest” Oscar de la Renta midi dress. The black flowy dress has flowers and wild animals all over it, including deer, birds and a goat. Talk about a statement piece! Of course, the Duchess looked as chic as ever, but it was also a refreshing, youthful outfit.
She wasn’t afraid to let her hair down and loose, too.
And, of course, she and Prince Charming greeted their fans warmly, despite the snow!
