While visiting an animal welfare organisation recently, Meghan Markle’s reply to being called fat is sure to grab your attention.
The Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to staff, volunteers and beneficiaries at one of her four new patronages, Mayhew, an animal welfare organisation that works towards improving the lives of dogs, cats and people locally and internationally.
During her visit, Meghan, who herself is an animal lover, saw a number of projects run by the charity to improve the lives of animals and people and to help communities both in London and internationally.
Meghan even got to hold one of the rescue’s pups.
Before moving to London, Meghan had two rescue pups at her home in Toronto. Harry and Meghan have also gotten their own dog together.
Meghan met with the volunteers there and those impacted by Mayhew’s work, however, one bold compliment caught her attention.
One woman named McEachrom said, “What a lovely lady you are. May God bless you.”
“And you’re a fat lady!” added McEachrom, referring to the Duchess of Sussex’s growing baby bump.
Meghan responded with a big laugh, “I’ll take it!”
McEachrom also guessed the gender of Meghan and Prince Harry’s baby according to a report.
“Glad to see you so well. You’ll soon be having a little baby boy!” McEachrom said.
“Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy? It’s a surprise. We don’t know what we’re having. I ask everyone what they think, and everyone has a very strong opinion about it,” Meghan said.
Meghan at the event wore a chic monochromatic look of a cashmere coat layered over a maternity beige knit dress coupled with nude heels and a beige tote.
The couple is expecting their first child due in April this year and Meghan is six months pregnant.
