The Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s royal baby sure is an active one – just like his or her mom and dad! On Friday (Feb. 1), during the duo’s trip to Bristol, the 37-year-old reacted to a swift kick from the tiny tot by beaming down at her belly and patting her stomach. Too sweet!
A video of the moment was captured by @harry_meghan_updates on Instagram with the caption, “WOW! Look at this! The precious moment Baby Sussex kicked Meghan’s lungs out of her He/she really wants to come out to meet us people! No wonder mummy needs to hold to calm .”
Fans were clearly delighted to see the mini Windsor moving, commenting things like “what a beautiful moment” and “the baby is ready to do engagements already!”
With the former Suits star mere months away from welcoming her first child, she and Prince Harry are preparing to relocate from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage. It’s been speculated that she’s hired a doula to help her through the labour, and that she will opt to give birth closer to their new home — likely at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey.

“It will be much less chaos and more of a private event than if she gives birth in London like Kate did,” at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, a source recently told Us Weekly. The hospital is the same outpost Prince Edward’s wife, Sophie, gave birth to Lady Louise Windsor and Viscount Severn.
However, the staff at St Mary’s Hospital in London have been advised not to take a holiday in the spring, sparking rumours that the Duchess Meghan plans to deliver there. A source told the Telegraph: “Staff at the Lindo Wing have been asked not to take holiday in April. Everyone thinks it’s got something to do with the royal baby but no one is confirming anything.”
