We often face comments like “you are fat” or “you are such a lean fellow”, at times this makes us uncomfortable and make self conscious.
Then what happens when a British royal encounters the same question?,
Surprisingly the royal is none other than Meghan Markle,and her reply is quite interesting.

Today The Duchess of Sussex made her first visit to @TheMayhew since becoming Patron – Mayhew is a grassroots charity working in a unique way to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally. Mayhew looks for innovative ways to reduce the number of animals in need through pro-active community and educational initiatives and preventative veterinary care. Among the people she met was Wully, a formerly homeless pet refuge service user, and his two dogs Azzy and Gallis – The Duchess found out about the different ways Mayhew’s animal welfare officers have supported Wully and his pets over the past 11 years. Her Royal Highness also met Roobarb the dog, who is part of Mayhew’s dog therapy programme TheraPaws, which puts smiles on the faces of vulnerable individuals. The Duchess met volunteers who dedicate their time to Mayhew community programmes, including the trap, neuter and return programme, which controls and cares for the feral cat communities in London. And Her Royal Highness was also able to meet the team behind Mayhew’s international work, which includes an overseas vet training programme in countries like India and Afghanistan to help improve animal welfare.

🐶 The Duchess of Sussex meets Minnie, a one-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, during her first visit to @TheMayhew since becoming Patron. Minnie has recently become available for adoption from Mayhew. Mayhew work to keep rescued animals safe, healthy and loved, caring for them on-site or via foster care, until they can find them the perfect family — last year Mayhew rehomed 98 dogs and 380 cats.
The royal Dutchess encountered with a woman named McEachrom and she said, “What a lovely lady you are. May God bless you.”
“And you’re a fat lady!” she added, referring to the Duchess of Sussex’s growing baby bump. To this Meghan Markle responded with a big laugh and said, “I’ll take it!”
McEachrom also predicted the gender of Meghan and Prince Harry’s baby, “Glad to see you so well. You’ll soon be having a little baby boy!” McEachrom said.”Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy? It’s a surprise. We don’t know what we’re having. I ask everyone what they think, and everyone has a very strong opinion about it,” she replied.
The Duchess of Sussex is a big animal lover, saw a number of projects run by the charity to improve the lives of animals and people to help communities in London and internationally. She also held one of the rescue’s pups.
The royal couple who are expecting their first baby by the April last or early May, already owns a puppy.
