Duchess Meghan stepped out for a charming appearance on Tuesday morning. She helped brighten the morning for the residents of Brinsworth House. It is nursing and cares home for British entertainers run by the Royal Variety Charity.
For the occasion, the Duchess opted for a floral Brock Collection dress and a long grey coat by Canadian brand Soia&Kyo. She completed her look with nude stiletto heels.
Meghan took part in festive activities with the residents including arts and crafts and carols. Royal Variety Charity helps those who have worked in the entertainment industry and need assistance because of old age, illness or hard times.
A month ago, Harry and Meghan attended the Royal Variety Performance to benefit the charity. At the event, Meghan received a bouquet of flowers that had been picked from the garden at Brinsworth House in Twickenham, southwest London.
During today’s visit, Meghan engaged in conversation with actress Mona Hammond who played Blossom Jackson in EastEnders in the 1990s. She also talked to Richard O’Sullivan, star of 1970s sitcoms Man About the House and Robin’s Nest.
Later, the Duchess showed her crafting skills and helped decorate Christmas artwork. She made a bauble-shaped decoration, on which she signed her name in red.
Meghan, who’s expecting her first child, told residents she was feeling “very good.” She paused, put her hands on the bump and added: “Very pregnant.”
At one point, she asked a resident if she had children, and the resident said, “No, I don’t. I had a career.” Meghan responded to her, “That I understand.”
Royal Variety Charity Chairman Giles Cooper told royal reporter Carolyn Durand that “the timing of the visit is fantastic as it comes a few weeks after the Royal Variety performance which she attended with Prince Harry.
“And it comes after her wedding, which all the residents here were watching. We had the television on, Union Jack bunting up and a party atmosphere, so it’s nice to have the bride here.”
“Merry Christmas,” Meghan wished everyone as she left the Brinsworth House.
Tomorrow, Queen Elizabeth II is hosting her annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.
So, fans of the Royal family can expect to catch a glimpse of Meghan. There won’t be official photographers at the event. However, there could be photos of the royals arriving.
