What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
Of course, Meghan and Kate are completely different ladies despite both managed to marry Windsor men. The Duchess of Cambridge grew up in the English high society, and she will probably become Queen consort in the future. On the other hand, Meghan is a former Hollywood actress who was raised in America in a humble home with her mother, Doria Ragland.
On October 15, 2018, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child, and Meghan was already three months pregnant by then. The day the statement was posted on social media, Prince Harry and the former actress were in Australia during the first part of their Royal Tour.
They received hundreds of congratulatory messages from those nearby as well as from back home. Typically, the Queen does not allow pregnant women in the family to travel because the heirs have to be protected. However, Meghan was already scheduled for their first global tour, so it seems like she broke that rule. On the other hand, Kate Middleton stayed home for her three pregnancies.
She only traveled to Norway during her third pregnancy with Prince Louis, but most of the time, she stayed in the UK. Understandably, Kate might have wanted to go for a safer route because her children are currently the direct heirs to the throne. Meghan’s child is seventh in line, and it’s not likely that he will ever wear the crown.
