Pregnant Meghan Markle laughs off 'fat lady' comment at animal shelter

Posted January 17, 2019

Meghan, who is now a patron of Mayhew, visited the animal charity's headquarters in north west London this afternoon.

When she chatted to a group of pensioners from a local dementia care home who receive petting dog visits organised by Mayhew, she was introduced to Gothrine McEachrom, known as Peggy, who said: "You're a fat lady".

Meghan Markle visited animal charity Mayhew today, one of her four official patronages as announced last week to meet with staff, volunteers, and of course spend time with one of the animals.

Rather than take offense, the mom-to-be laughed and replied, "I'll take it!"

In fact, earlier this week Meghan revealed how far along in her pregnancy she is (6 months!) and which means she'll be due around the end of April/beginning of May!

The Duchess of Sussex turned heads in a glittering floor-length dress by one of her favourite designers for a special charity performance on Wednesday night.

Meghan has taken up the post of Patron to support the education and animal welfare work of Mayhew.

One doubtful social media user said: "Think you need to go to Specsavers".

During her visit to the shelter, Meghan, dressed in a stylish all-beige outfit, also got the chance to play with the puppies up for adoption.

In September previous year, Meghan and Prince Harry adopted a black labrador rescue dog named Oz, to join them in their Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

Described on H&M's website as the MAMA Fine-knit dress, the light colour worn by Markle's already sold out following its appearance in public.

Her other dog Guy, a Beagle, did make the journey and is now part of the family and has joined the Sussex's other pet, a black Labrador.
