Meghan shows off blooming baby bump in fitted floral dress on nursing home visit

By Jessica Pollack

The Duchess of Sussex's baby bump was perfectly in bloom on Tuesday (Dec. 18) as she paid a visit to retired entertainers at Brinsworth House, a nursing home run by the Royal Variety Charity, of which the Queen is patron.

The mom-to-be wore a form-fitting, floral dress for the occasion and topped it off with Canadian accents - a grey coat by Soia & Kyo and delicate tear-shaped Birks earrings. Meghan had a ball talking shop with residents who used to work in the entertainment industry, looking radiant as she revealed that she feels "very pregnant" today.

To show off her beautiful new curve, the former actress chose Brock Collection's $1,700 Odilia Floral Print Panelled Midi Dress, featuring an open neckline and pretty gathered cap sleeves. Keeping the winter chill at bay on her way in and out of the fun engagement, the duchess turned to the $550 ADELAIDA slim fit maxi-length classic wool coat by one of her go-to Canadian outerwear brands, Soia & Kyo.

Prince Harry's wife anchored the look with her fave Aquazzura Deneuve Bow pumps in nude and carried a Wilbur & Gussie silk envelope clutch. Her hair was swept back into a centre-parted bun and her makeup played up her pregnancy glow with a bit of bronzer, some eyeliner and mascara and a pink lip.

While at the nursing and care home, Meghan took part in some fun holiday-themed activities, showing off her calligraphy skills once again as she decorated a paper ornament, writing "Merry Christmas, Love Meghan." She also dusted off her Spanish, speaking fluently with a resident after picking up the language years ago while working in Argentina.

The 37-year-old could definitely relate to the residents, having been a TV star herself, and she likely had a lot to talk about after making her debut at the annual Royal Variety Performance in November. The pregnant royal wore another floral number for that occasion, a stunning Safiyaa gown with a sequinned bodice and peplum detailing, as she happily watched Take That and cast members from Hamilton perform on stage at the Royal Palladium from the royal box.
