Harry and Meghan were pictured cradling Meghan’s bump at the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at Drapers’ Hall.
The Duke of Sussex revealed that he and the Duchess of Sussex are expecting a “heavy baby”. Harry joked about the weight of his unborn child and joined Meghan in celebrating the achievements of military veterans at an awards ceremony. Meghan was seen cradling her baby bump six months into her pregnancy.
The Duke said “there’s a heavy baby in there” at the glittering function at the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at Drapers’ Hall, a posh central London hotel. The Duchess praised Harry saying: “He’s going to be a good daddy.”
The couple’s baby could be the royal family’s heaviest baby at birth. Prince Louis currently holds the record weighing 8lb 7oz when he was born.
Princess Charlotte weighted 8lb 3oz when she was born, and her brother Prince George weighted 8lb 6oz two years before.
In contrast, their father, the Duke of Cambridge, weighed 7lbs 1.5oz in 1982 and his brother, the Duke of Sussex, was just 6lbs 14oz in 1984. Their grandfather, Prince Charles, though was a little heavier than his sons at 7lbs 6oz back in 1948.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the event recognizing the achievements of people who, despite life-changing injuries, accidents or illnesses, excelled in a sporting or adventure challenge.
Megan chose a monochrome look from the designer of her wedding dress Givenchy for this occasion.
It was the Duchess’ first public appearance since her friends defended her in a row with her family.
The royal couple chaired the judging panel, which deliberated over who would receive the three awards – recognizing achievement, celebrating excellence, and the third named in memory of adventurer Henry Worsley, who died trying to complete the first unsupported crossing of the Antarctic.
The Duchess is expected to give birth in the spring. The baby could share the same birthday with his great-grandmother, the Queen. She turns 93 on April 21, while Prince Louis was born on April 23.
