Heavily pregnant Duchess Meghan recently got named the Royal patron of the National Theatre. For her outing on Wednesday, she chose to stun in peachy pink.
The new Royal patron for the National Theatre, Duchess Markle, appeared at the engagement without her husband Prince Harry. She wore her $1,895 Brandon Maxwell V-neck mini dress, which has sold out on Moda Operandi, with a blazer and the same Aquazzura Matilde shoes she wore for her engagement announcement in November 2017.
The former actress found a perfect fit in her new patronage as she’s worked in the arts. Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan had become the patron of the National Theater because she's a "believer in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together."
At the theater, she learned more about the work that is done there and she got the pleasure of meeting some of the staff and apprentices who work behind the scenes. As usual, Meghan was welcomed by a crowd that cheered for her after waiting to catch a glimpse of the Royal.
Rufus Norris, the director of the theater greeted her. For her tour, she also got to meet the carpenters and welders who prepare sets.
The Duchess mingled with the members of the Pericles company. The company is the National Theatre's first Public Acts production in 2018.
It was responsible for bringing together people of all ages to put on a musical version of the Shakespeare play. Last year, Meghan took over the role as the theater’s patron from the Queen.
The Duchess also met children who were studying at the theater and shared a joke with them about remembering their lines when reading for their roles. Meghan has a background in stage acting and she studied theater and international relations at Northwestern University, Illinois.
Hypnobirthing expert Katharine Graves revealed that Meghan’s love for cradling her baby bump was biological. She shared that it was natural for the Royal from a “biological perspective.”
“Placing your hands on your bump comforts the baby, comforts you, and helps create the optimum conditions for labour.”
