The Duchess of Sussex will hear about Mayhew’s initiatives, including its community engagement and international projects, on her first visit since becoming the charity’s patron
Pregnant Meghan Markle has stepped out in a classy beige outfit on a visit to the Mayhew animal welfare charity in London.
Meghan’s large baby bump appears prominent in her tight fitting £24.99 H&M ‘Mama’ dress and Armani jacket, and she has teamed the ensemble with similar coloured stilettos.
The Duchess was greeted outside the event by charity representatives and was pictured smiling as she arrived.
Today she will meet with staff, volunteers and beneficiaries, and hear more about the charity’s initiatives, from community engagement to international projects.
Meghan was recently made patron of the organisation, as well as patron of the National Theatre, The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), and Smart Works.
Caroline Yates, CEO of Mayhew previously said: “We are so excited that HRH The Duchess of Sussex has chosen to be our Patron.
“Mayhew works to improve the lives of dogs, cats and the people in our community, tackling the root cause of animal abandonment and neglect and supporting vulnerable people to stay with their companion pets.
The Duchess has spent many years championing animal welfare, and we are honoured to have our charity represented by such a passionate Patron.
“We look forward to working closely with The Duchess and hope that, together, we can help even more animals and people.”
Kensington Palace have tweeted: “Today The Duchess of Sussex is visiting TheMayhew — a grassroots charity working in a unique way to improve the lives of animals and people to better communities both in London and internationally.”
Meghan was out in Birkenhead, Merseyside, with Prince Harry on Monday to learn about a number of organisations that support and empower groups within the local community.
During the day she revealed she is six months pregnant.
On their walkabout the town, the Duchess even asked fans for a name suggestion if the baby is a girl, and liked their recommendation ‘Amy’.
She told fans ‘that’s a great name’.
