Meghan Markle Reacts to Fat-Shaming for Pregnancy

Kate Middleton

Meghan Markle has been the subject of a lot of criticism over the past several months, but one woman's comment made on Wednesday may be the most freaky yet.

Meghan Markle couldn't help but laugh when a woman told her she's looking plump as she visited an animal charity Wednesday. "And you're a fat lady", she blurted out.

The woman, who was not identified, gestured toward the Duchess of Sussex's belly as she shook the royal's hand. "May the good lord always bless you.And you're a fat lady!"

Meghan Markle, who is due to give birth in April, showed all the graciousness of a royal when she expertly responded to a comment about her growing body.

And there is reportedly no record of his one-on-one, two-hour discussion with Mr Putin in Helsinki past year . Trump denied on Fox News that he was keeping anything under wraps on his face-to-face meetings with Putin.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: "The Duchess is delighted to become Patron of both national and grassroots organisations that are part of the fabric of the United Kingdom, and is very much looking forward to working with them to bring wider public attention to their causes".

"But you don't expect to see someone connected to the English royal family wandering down the aisles". "The Duchess has long understood the connection between animals and community welfare and has supported various animal rescue centers in Los Angeles". Browse them all below.

The Duchess of Sussex just further cemented her status as a global style muse on her first solo engagement of 2019. The Jack Russell puppy was rescued from a suspected puppy farm in October previous year. It is a fitting choice for the duchess, who is a rescue pet owner.
