Meghan Markle’s baby bump blossoms in $1,000 floral midi-dress as she visits a nursing home
Meghan Markle looked stunning for a solo engagement at the Royal Variety Charity's residential nursing and care home on Tuesday.
The Duchess of Sussex stepped out with her baby bump looking like it had grown considerably from the last time the public saw her.
Additionally, her gorgeous dress added to the beauty of the expecting mother. She and Harry hope to become parents in Spring 2019.

Markle wore a £834 floral dress and a £550 coat by LA label Brock Collection and Canada's Soai & Kyo respectively, according to the Daily Mail. The short-sleeved dress was a tight fit on the 37-year-old.
It was even more reflective of just how quickly she's coming along in her pregnancy. She styled her hair in a low bun for the event and accessorized with very little.
The event was held in Brinsworth House in Twickenham, south west London. The nursing home works to support former entertainers who now need assistance thanks to older age, sickness, or otherwise.
During her visit, Markle also sat down in a dining area and listened to a performance of "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas."
She took part in other Christmas-themed activities with the elders. At one point, she revealed she was "feeling very pregnant" for the day.
Indeed, many are espousing the idea of twins from the duchess. Lexi Rudolph of NBC had twins herself. She said that "the way [Markle] is carrying - her belly sort of popped just like mine did."

The chairman of the charity, Giles Cooper, spoke on the Duchess' appearance:
"The timing of the visit is fantastic as it comes a few weeks after the Royal Variety performance which she attended with Prince Harry."
This will be the last engagement for Markle before Christmas arrives. On Christmas day, she is set to stay at Sandringham with other members of the royal family.

While the media previously suspect that Markle's mother would be with her, PEOPLE confirmed this is not the case.
Doria Ragland, the only direct family member who attended the duchess' wedding, will spend Christmas away from her daughter.
The magazine implied the Ragland politely declined the Queen's invitation to be in the Norfolk estate. It would have been quite unusual to have an extended family member at the occasion.

The belief that Ragland might also be moving in with her daughter when they move to Frogmore cottage next year was also debunked.
However, it is still believed that space has been made for the grandmother to visit regularly. She and Markle are looking forward to the new baby (or babies).
Last week, Markle's anticipation for her first child was seen when she cradled her tummy on stage at the British Fashion Awards.
Wearing a stunning floor-length black gown, the Duchess held her hands to her stomach throughout the ceremony. So much so, some took issue with her actions.
Negative comments reflected a belief that Markle was showing off and looking for attention. However, most persons saw the act as a loving precious thing from the expecting mother.
Yesterday's appearance was not without negativity either. It followed a plea from Markle's father on the show "Good Morning Britain."
In his fifth interview, Thomas Markle urged his daughter to "reach out, send [him] a text, anything."
For the time being, it looks like Markle is carrying on with her royal arrangements. She doesn't appear to be paying any mind to her father or her sister.
We wish her a successful pregnancy whether it's twins or just one.
