It’s hard to believe that Duchess Meghan Markle’s pregnancy has almost reached its conclusion!
According to People, Markle was mingling with guests at a special reception at Buckingham Palace this past Tuesday. Many of the guests who attended this particular party were part of different charity organizations that the royals work with. There were a few familiar faces in the crowd that Markle struck up a conversation with.
“I look different than when you saw me last!” she told one guest, whom she recognized.
When the guest — who is from Cardiff, Wales — asked Meghan how she is doing in her pregnancy, she replied to him by saying that she thinks it’s very nice that everyone has been checking up on her. She seemed appreciative that so many seem concerned with her health and the pregnancy.
“No, it’s actually very sweet,” Meghan told the guest. “It’s a very sweet, nurturing thing to ask. We’re nearly there!”
Right now, Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, are working on putting the final touches on their house in Windsor. They are gearing up for the royal baby, one who is expected to be born sometime in April. However, Markle and Prince Harry have not publicly revealed their due date.

Their Royal Highnesses see more of the vibrant Moroccan culture – joining a cooking demonstration with Chef Moha and children, who were cooking traditional dishes. Many of the children are from underprivileged backgrounds, and are part of a scheme to help open up the restaurant industry to young people. Children were also making Cherine Mallah’s Moroccan Pancakes from ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ – the charity cookbook, supported by The Duchess, which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. #RoyalVisitMorocco #CookTogether. ????image 2 PA / image 1 +3 @kensingtonroyal
But while she may be preparing for a new addition to the family, The Inquisitr recently shared that Meghan and her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, were spotted together for the first time since they attended Christmas Day service at Sandringham. The ladies both attended an event at Buckingham Palace this week. The swanky shindig was hosted by Queen Elizabeth, and the celebration marked Prince Charles’ 50th anniversary of his investiture as the Prince of Wales.
Both Meghan and Kate dressed to the nines for the occasion, and the ladies were seen chatting with one another. It appeared as though they were on good terms. An insider at the event also pointed out that the girls seem to be pros at being royals, and that they conducted themselves very well at the event.
“An ordinary woman is not going to get to become a princess,” the insider shared. “There is a necessary strength of character and ambition and single-mindedness. It takes someone really strong. That is Kate and Meghan.”
As many know, there has been a rumored feud between the ladies ever since Meghan and Harry’s wedding. Though Kensington Palace has denied that there is any beef between Markle and Middleton, many insiders say otherwise.
Middleton did not attend Markle’s star-studded baby shower that was thrown for her in New York City — and in turn, Harry and Meghan didn’t attend Kate’s 37th birthday bash, adding more fuel to the rumors that the two women are at odds.
