Meghan Markle shows off baby bump as she makes Royal Variety Performance debut with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle glowed as she showed off her baby bump in a glittering black and white dress tonight.

The mum-to-be waved at the waiting crowds as she arrived at the Royal Variety Performance 2018 with Prince Harry.

She wore a black and white sequined dress with a flattering halterneck neckline to make her debut at the glamorous event.

The dress featured a long train that matched the glitz of the evening.

Dashing Harry held his wife’s hand as they walked the red carpet and wore a smart tuxedo for the black tie event.

Meghan clutched a black glittery bag and wore matching stilettos as she stopped to collect a welcome bouquet from a little girl waiting at the entrance to The London Palladium.

  • Meghan Markle’s awkward exchange with Take That at the Royal Variety Performance

It’s a very special night for the couple as it’s six months to the day since Meghan and Harry tied the knot in Windsor.

Tonight is also the first time Meghan will attend the annual entertainment show which raises money to support hundreds of entertainers throughout the UK.

She enjoyed an awkward exchange with Take That as she greeted performers at the show.

The boyband never broke America so Meghan only managed to briefly maintain conversation with Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen.

Every year the televised event is attended by a senior member of the royal family with Prince Harry making his debut back in 2015.

Last year the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the guests of honour – and Kate was left in fits of giggles when Miranda Hart got Prince William to stand up and practise her famous gallop.

The Queen has attended the show 39 times, but hasn’t for six years, the last time being in 2012.

Since then, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been the guests of honour.

Tonight Meghan and Harry are in for a treat as the event is hosted by comedian Greg Davies, who is best known for playing Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners.

Speaking about his role, Davies said: “I am delighted to host the Royal Variety.”

“It is a role that I am wildly unsuited to and I will no doubt offend a great many people, but my Mum has a voracious appetite for meeting members of the Royal family and this seems a reasonable price to pay for the gift of life,” he added.

Performers include Take That, George Ezra, Clean Bandit, the cast of the Tina Turner musical, and father and son duo, Andrea and Matteo Bocelli.
