Prince Harry really has a cheeky sense of humor. On the three-day royal tour of Morocco, he joked that the baby his wife is carrying might not be his.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Education For All, a boarding house which supports female education in the rural communities of the High Atlas Mountains. BBC captured a video of the couple sitting at a table chatting with several of the school’s teachers, who congratulated them on the pregnancy.
One of the women in attendance said ”I wish to say congratulations for your pregnancy.”
The Duke smiled and turned towards Meghan and said, “Wait, you’re pregnant?” “Surprise!” Meghan replied as people in the room audibly laughed. “Is it mine?” the Duke added with a mischievous grin on his face.

He isn’t the only royal who’s got jokes. The Duchess showed her funny side when the couple visited the Moroccan Federation of Equestrian Sports, she joked about her acting career, according to Roya Nikkhah, the royal correspondent for The Sunday Times.
Nikkhah tweeted: “In a grooming session with some young people who benefit from Morocco’s equine therapy programme, Harry noticed one of the ponies was a little nervous and shaking. Has anyone got any carrots?’ he joked.
Meghan: ‘We all get a little camera shy, I understand.’ #RoyalVisitMorocco.”

“Has anyone got any carrots?” Harry joked.
While Meghan said: “We all get a little camera shy, I understand.”
Between the couple’s royal duties, they shared many adorable PDA moments; they’ve held hands, lovingly looked at each other, and snuggled up during the trip.
Over the weekend, the Duchess received a henna tattoo, which symbolizes good luck in Moroccan culture. The Duke admired the body ink one of the students created.
“It’s for when we have a big party. Now she is pregnant we do the henna to keep her happy with whit the baby. For good luck,” a housemother, Khadeja Oukattou, told People.
She added that the students “wished them a good life and good health for them and the baby.”
The Duchess was in New York City before the trip, for an American baby shower, where her friends “from her teenage years to the present,” including Amal Clooney, Gayle King, and Suits co-star Abigail Spencer, feted her pregnancy.
As BAZAAR.com reported, the “private, intimate” party took place in Serena Williams’ Grand Penthouse at the Mark Hotel.
Williams’ wedding party planner Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events oversaw the celebrations while Williams and Markle’s best friend Genevieve Hillis hosted 20 guests.
They had an “amazing” flower arrangement session where the final product was given to Repeat Roses, an organization that provides the flowers to hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and homeless shelters.
It was the Duchess’ idea to donate the floral arrangements.
Meghan is expected to have another baby shower in England following her trip to Morocco.
