Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry might be only weeks away from becoming parents, but they’re not holding back during their three-day tour of Morocco.

Indeed the glamorous royals touched down with style in Morocco on Sunday, 24th February where they commenced their final royal tour before they welcome their new baby, due in late April this year.

Stepping out of the plane with Harry, Meghan showed she meant business from the get-go in a stunning Valentino dress in its signature red colour.

The pair were greeted by a swell of high profile guests at Casablanca airport, where Harry inspected a guard of honour from the Auxiliary Forces.

Harry and Meghan then made a one hour car journey to Rabat where they will stay at the King of Morocco’s royal residences.

Meghan and Harry visit boarding school for girls

The following morning, Meghan and Harry visited the town of Asni to learn about a Moroccan Non-Government-Organisation – Education For All.

The charity works to create safe environments for girls by housing them in dormitories right next to their schools, allowing them simple and easy access to education and encouraging them to see out their schooling years to have a brighter future.

This was a particularly poignant event for Meghan given her strong passion for women’s rights and their access to education.

The brunette royal cut an elegant figure in a navy Alice and Olivia Blazer paired with a white tunic (which she later changed with a plain black top) and skinny jeans.

It was clear the royals were enjoying themselves, particularly when the pair were spotted sharing a sweet moment in the sunshine – stop it you guys!

But it wasn’t just her trendy outfit that caught people’s attention.

In a video captured during the event, Meghan was spotted glancing lovingly down at her stomach, and we’re just going to be sitting here pressing replay for the foreseeable future.

And in another candid moment, Prince Harry made a comical remark about his wife’s pregnancy, pretending to not know that she was about to give birth.

Feigning shock during the event, Prince Harry turned to Meghan, whose bump was visible for all to see through her open jacket.

“Surprise!” Meghan said, while Harry quizzically exclaimed: “She’s pregnant!?”

And that wasn’t the only surprising moment of the visit – Meghan also impressed guests when she spoke French to the students.

As one student revealed she wanted to be an astronaut, Meghan responded, “Wow, that’s impressive!”

She then turned to another student and asked: “Et toi? Qu’est ce que tu veux être?”

This translates to “And you? What do you want to be?”, to which the student replied that she wanted to be a teacher.

Meghan gets a Henna tattoo

Meghan also took part in a Henna tattoo ceremony during the event, which is an ancient custom thought to have originated from North Africa.

The Henna is also a tradition in Morocco during the seventh month of pregnancy, and celebrates health and wellness for the baby and its mother.

Applied by a 17-year-old local who lived at the Education For All Boarding house, the Duchess was given a traditional henna flower.

Wearing it with pride, it was clear Meghan was thrilled with the student’s artistic skills, saying it was “really lovely” before she showed it off to Prince Harry.

Meghan steps out in Dior gown

Later that evening, Duchess Meghan stepped out in a stunning Dior ensemble that we, quite frankly, are enamoured with.

The cream-toned kaftan-inspired gown looked divine on the royal as she and Harry stepped out for a reception dinner hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco in Rabat.

The pair met a number of influential Moroccan women over the course of the evening, including young entrepreneurs and disabled athletes.

The stunning gown, which was a custom design for the Duchess, looked picture perfect paired with metallic heels and diamond earrings, also by Dior.

Ever the role model, Meghan was also heard telling some of the female guests to continue fighting for their cause: “Women have to challenge everywhere in the world,” she said.
