- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on a three-day royal trip to Morocco.
- During one of their trips, Prince Harry joked that he didn’t know wife Meghan Markle was pregnant and quipped, “Is it mine?”
- The couple, who married in May 2018, are due to welcome their first child this spring.
The Duke of Sussex certainly has a cheeky sense of humor. While on a three-day royal tour of Morocco, Prince Harry joked that Meghan Markle’s baby might in fact not be his child.
The future parents visited Education For All, a boarding house that supports female education in the rural communities of the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The BBC captured a video of the pair sitting at a table chatting with a few of the school’s teachers, who congratulated the couple on the pregnancy.
“I wish to say congratulations for your pregnancy,” said one of the women in attendance.
Harry smiled and turned towards his wife and said, “Wait, you’re pregnant?” “Surprise!” the Duchess replied as people in the room audibly laughed.
“Is it mine?” he added with a mischievous grin on his face.
Harry’s not the only royal who’s got jokes; Meghan also showed her funny side when the pair visited the Moroccan Federation of Equestrian Sports, Meghan joked about her acting career, according to Roya Nikkhah, the royal correspondent for The Sunday Times.
“In a grooming session with some young people who benefit from Morocco’s equine therapy programme, Harry noticed one of the ponies was a little nervous and shaking,” Nikkhah tweeted. “‘Has anyone got any carrots?’ he joked. Meghan: ‘We all get a little camera shy, I understand.’ #RoyalVisitMorocco.”
In between their royal duties, the happy couple shared plenty of adorable PDA moments; they’ve held hands, lovingly looked at one another, and snuggled up during their trip.
Over the weekend, Meghan received a beautiful henna tattoo, which symbolizes good luck in Morrocan culture. Prince Harry admired the body ink one of the students created. “It’s for when we have a big party. Now she is pregnant we do the henna to keep her happy with with the baby. For good luck,” one of the housemothers, Khadeja Oukattou, told People. She added that the students “wished them a good life and good health for them and the baby.”
Markle was in New York City last week for an American baby shower, where her friends “from her teenage years to the present,” including Amal Clooney, Gayle King, and Suits co-star Abigail Spencer, feted her pregnancy.
As BAZAAR.com exclusively reported, the “private, intimate” party took place in Serena Williams’ Grand Penthouse at the Mark Hotel. Williams’ wedding party planner Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events also oversaw the celebrations while Williams and Markle’s best friend Genevieve Hillis hosted around 20 guests. There was an “amazing” flower arrangement session where the final product was given to Repeat Roses, an organization that provides the flowers to hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and homeless shelters. It was Meghan’s idea to donate the floral arrangements.
The royal mom-to-be is expected to have another baby shower in England following her and Harry’s Morocco trip. We hope her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, will be one of the guests at the British party.
