Meghan Markle took part in remembering husband Prince Harry's late friend last night. She also displayed new life with her growing bump.

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Sussex joined Prince Harry at a memorial fund for Henry van Straubenzee. According to Mirror, he was a friend of Harry's who died at just 18 in a car accident in 2002.

Markle, ever elegant, wore a dark ensemble which matched Harry's suit. The two were pictured leaving the St. Luke's Church on King's Road in Chelsea.

The 37-year-old wore a navy blue dress that goes for £295 and was designed by Kate Spade. It highlighted her baby bump as the two made their way to their car after the event.

Markle chose a messy bun to go with the look. During the service, she read a Marianne Williamson poem in commemoration. Harry, who had been in the same class as Henry, also gave a speech.

His brother, Prince William, was friends with Henry's older brother when the boys were in school. William was unable to attend as he was at the Diplomatic Reception in Buckingham Palace.

However, he left a letter that was placed on the first page of the order of the service. The piece commended the charity for its work over the last decade.

It said:

"This year marks the tenth annual carol service and, thanks to the support given each year by many of you here tonight, the tickets have sold out every year within two weeks of going on sale."

It continued:

"That is an impressive achievement by any measure and it means an enormous amount to the charity, as each service raises a huge amount for the work of Henry’s fund in Uganda."

Also in attendance were James and Pippa Middleton, who came in some time before Harry and Markle. So far, the foundation has assisted over 28,000 schoolchildren in Uganda.

Meanwhile, royal fans continue to watch as Markle's growing bump graces several events.

In Mid-November, we saw her in a dazzling halter-neck top to London's Royal Variety Performance. And in October, Markle adorably clasped her hands over her tummy during a state dinner.

It was just last week that the Duchess of Sussex was spotted cradling the bump during a visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen.

As she chatted to the ladies who helped to put together her book, "Together," Markle looked relaxed in a loose burgundy sweater. She is expected to give birth sometime in Spring next year.
