Meghan Markle, Nearing Her Third Trimester, Steps Out for Sweet Last Appearance Before Christmas

Meghan Markle enjoyed a special Christmas celebration among fellow actors in London on Tuesday.

The former star of Suits helped brighten the morning for nearly 40 residents of Brinsworth House, a nursing and care home for British entertainers run by the Royal Variety Charity. Last month, Meghan and husband Prince Harry took in the Royal Variety Performance to benefit the charity, which helps hundreds of British entertainers in need of assistance as a result of old age, ill-health or hard times.

Meghan, 37, continued to put her collection of cold weather coats on display in a grey number by Canadian brand Soia & Kyo that she wore unbelted to show off her white Brock Collection dress, which featured grey florals and hugged her growing baby bump. The royal mom-to-be wore her hair in a low bun for the occasion.

Inside the home on Tuesday, Meghan was given a tour of the facilities and then took part in the festive fun, including craft-making.

When asked how she’s doing by a resident, Meghan responded, “Very good.” She then paused, put her hands on her stomach and added with a laugh, “Very pregnant.”

It is Meghan’s last public engagement before the Christmas break. She and Harry, 34, will soon head off to Norfolk to join the other royals at Sandringham — but first, the couple will celebrate with Queen Elizabeth and the extended family at an annual  lunch party at Buckingham Palace. The Queen usually heads up to her rural retreat the following day.
