Pregnant Meghan Markle Stuns On First Visit As Royal Patron Of London National Theater
On Wednesday, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle stunned in a light peach babydoll dress as she attended the Royal Theater of London for the first time since becoming the theater’s royal patron. The actress paired the snug dress dress with a suit jacket of the same color and topped off the look with a pair of dainty $800 Aquazzura heels. Her look would not be complete without drawing the star’s enormous baby bump.
In December 2016, Queen Elizabeth II followed in the footsteps of the Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh and resigned from a number of royal Patronages on her 90th birthday. During her reign the Queen has held patronage over 600 institutions and over the last couple years distributing responsibility among other members of the royal family.
With Meghan’s passed history in the arts, it’s no wonder the Queen would appoint her as Patron of the National Theatre.
Markle, though a former television actress was formerly trained in the theater and graduated from Northwestern University with a double major in theater and international relationship.
The Duchess decided to use her acting skills to bring people together which is something she believes strongly in. The former actress attended a showing of War Horse put on by primary school children though the theater’s primary age program and even participated in an acting workshop with attendees.
After Markle’s visit to the Theatre the Royal Palace tweeted a series of videos and photos thanking the children for their performances.

However, a photo caught the eyes (and apparently hearts) of the Twitter sphere and and the gaze of a particularly infatuated school boy has gone viral.
