Caught on camera: The sweet moment Duchess Meghan reacts to her baby kicking

Caught on camera: The sweet moment Duchess Meghan reacts to her baby kicking

Earlier this week, Duchess Meghan was seen cradling her baby bump as she attended the British Fashion Awards.

While the Duchess of Sussex was standing on stage at the event, an audience member managed to record a sweet moment between the mum-to-be and her royal baby.

The video shows the 37-year-old former actress standing on stage with her hands resting on her bump when she suddenly grabs her tummy protectively and closes her eyes.

Fans on social media quickly pointed out that Meghan was responding to a powerful kick from her baby.

"That baby is playing polo in Meghan’s belly,” one fan commented.

Another wrote: “Baby Sussex is full of energy!! Look how he/she kicks mummy hard and Meghan close her eyes."

One person added: “That blink she gave tells us that was a kick kick!!"

The Duchess was on stage to present the award for British Designer of the Year (Womenswear) to Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller.

Waight Keller designed Meghan’s wedding gown for her royal wedding on May 19.

Meghan also delivered a short speech about the role of the fashion industry.

"As all of you in the room know, we have a deep connection to what we wear. Sometimes it's very personal and sometimes it's emotional," she said.

"But for me, this connection is rooted in, really, being able to understand that it's about supporting and empowering each other, especially as women."
