Meghan Markle got a tattoo to celebrate her pregnancy journey during her visit to Asni in the Atlas Mountains region of Morocco.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in a bid to visit a foundation in Morocco paid a visit to Asni despite Meghan's protruded stomach. The royal couple's chopper touched down in the region to honor the efforts of a British entrepreneur, Michael McHugo who founded the Moroccan NGO Education For All.


The foundation is committed to the grooming of young women through secondary education. Students left their dorm to welcome the expecting parents with a traditional song cheerfully.

Later on, 17-year-old Samira Ouaadi showed her love for the pregnant Meghan by drawing a beautiful Henna flower tattoo on the Duchess' right hand. The tattoo which is said to celebrate the health of both mother and child according to Moroccan tradition added grace to Meghan's already beautiful skin. It is sure that the duchess loved the tattoo which she patiently sat for minutes before it was completed.


She later whispered to her husband that the henna adorning her hand is "really lovely."

"It is a traditional practice for pregnant women in Morocco. It is to bring luck for the baby," Samira said.

For one of the occasions, the couple had on casual wears. Meghan who recently had an intimate baby shower in New York wore a navy jacket, pair of black trousers and black pumps rather than an elaborate costume.


Prince Harry on his part wore a pink shirt over a trouser and pair of tan boots.They also paid a visit to the girls' classroom where Meghan conversed with some of the students in the more familiar French. She asked questions related to schooling and future ambitions, and surprisingly, many of the girls enjoyed sciences and have goals to become teachers, engineers, and doctors.

“It’s so impressive that so many of the girls are studying maths and physics and the sciences," the Duchess said to Harry.


Markle also paid a visit to the girls' bedroom and then, in the company of her husband, they greeted and exchanged pleasantries with some fans waiting for them around the school premise. The main reason for the visit was to learn about the foundation which has helped to reduce the illiteracy of Moroccan women. The institution's founder, Mr. McHugo will be awarded an MBE for his humanitarian activities. McHugo was also named in the New Year's Honours list for his impact in Moroccan education.

This visit will be the third royal visit to the region. The first was in 1980 when the Queen visited and the second was in 2011 when Harry's father, Prince Charles toured the area. To conclude their trip, the couple visited Rabat. They tasted their various delicious recipes after watching children make dishes from the Grenfell cookbook championed by Meghan.
