Duchess Meghan cradles baby bump wearing $800 heels in chic nude outfit
The Duchess of Sussex has made her first official visit as a royal patron to the National Theatre in London.
Meghan, who is six months pregnant, opted for a pair of $800 Aquazzura heels, the same style she wore during her and Prince Harry’s official engagement announcement in November 2017.
The 37-year-old was seen waving to onlookers as she cradled her baby bump and made her way into the theatre, on London’s South Bank.
Welcoming her was Rufus Norris, the director of the National Theatre, who met with the Duchess privately in December before the patronage announcement was made earlier this month.
The soon to be mother-of-one took part in a workshop with those who were responsible for the Pericles production, which was the first Public Acts production in 2018 at the National Theatre.

The show was deemed a massive success, as the performance attracted over 200 people from all across London with Emily Lim directing the Shakespeare classic and six professional actors credited for an excellent act.
The former actress then took the time to meet with apprentices and technicians from different departments, such as metalwork, painting and carpentry.
According to Kensington Palace, the Duchess hopes to bring people together from diverse backgrounds and cultures with the help of art and will meet with the teams of the National Theatre to understand the work that goes behind each production.
The National Theatre holds a special place in Meghan’s heart, as the royal was an actress for 10 years before marrying Prince Harry last year. Starring in the hit US show Suits, the Duchess graduated with a double major in theatre and international relations from Northwestern University.
She has also previously volunteered at a performing arts after-school program for children who are enrolled in underprivileged schools.
