The Duchess of Sussex, former United States actress Meghan Markle, is due to give birth this spring to her first child with husband Prince Harry, 34, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson.
The baby, who will be seventh in line to the British throne, is expected in April after Meghan, disclosed she was six months pregnant in January.
On Friday last week Markle said she hoped the baby she is expecting this spring with Britain’s Prince Harry will follow in her feminist footsteps.
The ex-“Suits” actress made the comment during an International Women’s Day panel discussion at King’s College London.
Asked how her “bump” was treating her, Meghan told the audience: “very well”.
“I’d seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism’,” she said.
“I love that. So boy or girl or whatever it is, we hope that that’s the case, with our little bump.”
The 37-year-old, who married Harry last May, has long been vocal about women’s causes and in January became the royal patron of Smart Works, a charity helping long-term unemployed women.
