Oh no she didn't! A fellow volunteer at one of Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle's new patronages -- the animal charity Mayhew -- called the pregnant royal "fat!" And Meghan loved it!

The gracious duchess was being greeted by fellow volunteers at the animal shelter and one elderly woman Peggy McEachrom said, "What a lovely lady you are. And a fat lady!" Markle laughed and said, "I'll take it!" McEachrom, originally from Jamaica, went on to speculate that Markle is carrying a boy. She and Prince Harry have decided not to learn the gender of their baby until the birth so Meghan replied, "Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy?” It’s a surprise. We don’t know what we’re having. I ask everyone what they think, and everyone has a very strong opinion about it."

The visit just got cuter, as Markle bonded with a pup Roobarb and posed for photos.

Something we think is worth noting, too -- in contrast with U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, Meghan seems a bit more considerable about her wardrobe for public appearance (and/or she has a way better and more intelligent stylist). After Melania has worn a "I don't really care, do you?" jacket to visit flood victims, heels to visit hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, and an English colonial-era pith hat during her trip to Africa. Duchess Meghan, by contrast, chose a Stella McCartney Falabella tote for her visit to the animal charity. McCartney is, of course, British; so that's a plus -- but more than anything, she's one of the very few vegan designers -- no leather, no fur, no animal testing, no animal products. So when volunteering for animals, she chose an animal-friendly designer. Makes sense, right? Thoughtful, right? Maybe Melania should take note ...
