Meghan Markle flaunts pregnancy glow in Calvin Klein turtleneck dress while out with Prince Harry
Meghan Markle is one radiant mother-to-be, gracing every event that she and Prince Harry go to with such elegance and style. This week, the couple set out to attend The Wider Earth's charity performance in London, where the Duchess of Sussex showed off her growing baby bump in a white Calvin Klein dress.
MEGHAN'S MOST RECENT EVENT APPEARANCE
Meghan Markle was an effortless beauty at the gala's red carpet that night, dressed in a white Calvin Klein turtleneck that hugged her large baby bump. She topped this off with an Amanda Wakeley coat and a pair of high heels. Beside her, Harry wore his signature sharp suit as they greeted other event-goers as they entered the venue.
The Wider Earth gala aims to support the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, and its other charitable partner called "the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy." The gala is the royal couple's second philanthropic theater event this year, as they previously attended the Cirque du Soleil's "Totem" premiere back in January. That performance supported Sentebale's work with children and the youth affected by HIV, which is patronized by Prince Harry.
MEGHAN'S CONTRIBUTIONS TO EVENTS
Prince Harry and Meghan have been busy attending charity events and foundation galas ever since they got married, and it is something that the Duchess of Sussex seems to have adjusted to quite quickly. In fact, she does not only stand by Prince Harry's side during these events but she also occasionally gives speeches at some events.
When they visited the Government House in Wellington late last year, the Duchess gave an empowering speech to the indigenous groups of New Zealand. She and Prince Harry were at the House to celebrate New Zealand's 125th anniversary of women's suffrage, and they were joined by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Governor Dame Patsy Reddy.
In her speech, she first welcomed the assembled dignitaries and opened with a formal greeting in their native language, Māori.
“Tēnā koutou katoa [greetings to all].”
This greeting made her receive warm applause from the audience, who was impressed by her greeting.
“The achievements of the women of New Zealand who campaigned for their right to vote, and were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired.”
Speaking about the importance of women being given equal opportunities and equal rights, she said:
“Because yes, women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness. Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents: the basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community, the involvement and voice that allows you to be a part of the very world that you are a part of.”

With her empowering speeches touching the hearts of thousands of people around the world, the Duchess of Sussex has shown that when needed, she is ready to speak up about advocacies that she feels are of great importance and that she can help her husband in advocating issues that they feel need to be given attention to.
