Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are over the moon as they wait for their baby to be born. That being said, it’s no surprise the growing bump is their pride and joy and that they feel the need to show it off!
Yesterday, the royals visited New Zealand’s Redwood Treewalk in Rotorua during their tour and to mark the moment, Harry took a pic of his wife among the massive trees.
Meghan smiled for the camera and posed from the side, cradling her belly with both hands.
The sweet pic’s caption reads: ‘A message from The Duke and Duchess of Sussex: ‘Thank you New Zealand for the most wonderful final week of our tour.’ It has been a real privilege to meet so many friendly Kiwis. Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and NZ – we leave feeling inspired and reminded of how every single one of us can make a difference.’
In addition, there was also a quote from the most well-known suffragette in New Zealand, Kate Sheppard that reads: ‘The rain that refreshes the parched ground, is made up of single drops.’
Finally, the caption also included the flag emojis of all of the countries they have visited as part of their royal tour but also a camera emoji.

In another picture, the Duchess can be seen holding a lizard plushy at a gift shop. Will it be their baby’s first toy?
As for quoting Sheppard, this is actually the second time they referenced the legendary woman.
Meghan delivered a speech at the Government House earlier this week while celebrating the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand, and she just had to mention the pioneer for women’s equal rights.
‘The achievements of the women of New Zealand who campaigned for their right to vote, and who were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired. Suffrage isn’t simply about the right to vote but about what that represents too. The basic and fundamental human right to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community. The involvement and the voice that allows you to be a part of the very world that you are a part of,’ Meghan said before quoting Sheppard.
‘All that separates, whether race, class, creed, or sex, is inhuman, and must be overcome.’
