Looking every bit the Hollywood princess, Meghan wore a glittering $6,100 gown by Roland Mouret, which she paired with strappy heels and a slick bun.

Meghan revealed earlier this week she is six months pregnant with her baby due around the end of April beginning of May.

Her fine-knit dress from the fast fashion brand's Mama maternity range is priced at $34.99 and still available in a full size run, from XS through XL - though likely not for long.

The woman, who was not identified, gestured toward the Duchess of Sussex's belly as she shook the royal's hand.

Duchess Meghan Markle made an official royal visit today (January 16) to an animal rescue organization and met with lots of volunteers and workers at the organization.

Overnight, the Duchess of Sussex visited Mayhew animal shelter for the first time since being named patron. "And you're a fat lady", she blurted out.

In addition to Mayhew, the Duchess of Sussex is also the patron of Smart Works, a charity that helps women get back on their feet, the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

One doubtful social media user said: "Think you need to go to Specsavers".

"She asked about Minnie's story, what she's like and if she's up for adoption?"

Animal charity Mayhew works with cats and dogs - including family pets or companions for the homeless - to support local communities through welfare projects, reflecting the Duchess' love for animals.
