Pregnant Duchess Meghan Markle's Growing Baby Bump Visible During Christmas Carol Event

Palace Makes Statement On Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton's 'Feud' Michelle Obama offers advice to Meghan Duchess of Sussex

It was back to school for Meghan Markle! Meghan visited King's College London on Wednesday to address important issues including human trafficking and modern slavery, gender equality and inclusion, peace and reconciliation, and climate change and resilience.

The royal mom-to-be wore a dark outfit for the occasion, while styling her dark tresses down.

The badge features an image of the Queen and Kate's one is made of glass, not the traditional ivory - paying homage to her husband Prince William's continuous conservation campaigning.

The duchess chose the Lover's Knot, a diamond and pearl encrusted piece that dates back to 1914, previously preferred by her late mother-in-law Princess Diana.

While the Fab Four weren't together for this event, they will spend time together over the Christmas holiday, as the group is scheduled to spend Christmas in Norfolk with the Queen at Sandringham.

Her reading was about the importance of "letting our own light shine" containing the lines: "There's nothing enlightened about shrinking / So that other people won't feel insecure around you". Providing them with access to education is the key to economic and social development.

The couple haven't been seen for a couple of weeks, so fans were keen to catch a glimpse of Meghan's pregnancy bump as she stepped out in a royal blue dress from Serephina maternity.

The Duchess of Sussex has had a busy few days packed with secret engagements, from meeting with former First Lady Michelle Obama to attending a private carol service with her husband and his closest friends, where her baby bump was the talk of the town. "Because when girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures, not only for themselves but also for those around them".

The charity aims to fight poverty in Uganda and it was set up in memory of Henry van Straubenzee, a close friend of Prince Harry who died at the age of 18 in a auto crash.
