Last night, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out to attend the premiere of of Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem” show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which benefits Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale —an organization designed to help young people in Africa who are affected by HIV.

The soon-to-be first-time mom had everyone's attention when she rolled up on the scene in a navy blue sequined Roland Mouret gown (that cost almost $6,000), paired with Stuart Weitzman "Nudist" sandals, a Givenchy satin clutch and a gold heirloom bracelet that once belonged to Prince Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana.

It just so happens Roland Mouret is a good friend of Meghan's and was once rumored to be the designer of her wedding dress. The honor was eventually given to Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller.

We wonder if Meghan is hinting at the sex of the baby, rocking a blue dress....

We don't know the sex of the baby yet, and neither does Meghan and Harry. The 37-year-old former actress recently said she and Harry want the baby's sex to be a surprise. 

Earlier yesterday...

Meghan is 6 months along on her pregnancy journey. She's still making her royal rounds and looking fabulous AF while doing so.

The Duchess of Sussex perfectly pulled off a high-low lewk, rocking a beige H&M bodycon dress (that only cost $35) paired with cream Emporio Armani coat when she arrived at Mayhew, an animal rescue charity, which is one of her four new patronages. It was her first official visit in her new role as Patron. The Mayhew visit marks her 2nd stop after hitting up Smart Works last week. It was her first engagement of the new year.

As Meghan met with the staff and volunteers, she met a Jamaican woman named Peggy McEachrom. And apparently, auntie Peggy doesn't mind sharing exactly what's on her mind.

The woman called Meghan a "fat lady," but it was more of a compliment than shade.

“What a lovely lady you are,” Peggy told Meghan. “May God bless you. And you’re a fat lady!,” Peggy said as she brought attention to Meghan's growing belly.

Meghan laughed and responded, "I'll take it!"

Such a Duchess like response, because even with the cultural differences, chick would have gotten lit up by anybody else.

By the way, Ms. Peggy believes Meghan and Harry are having a baby boy. “Glad to see you so well. You’ll soon be having a little baby boy!” she said to Meghan.

“Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy?” Meghan said. “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.”

Today is a special lady's birthday...

Our Forever First Lady Michelle Obama turns 55 today! She's the epitome of class, grace, poise, beauty, intelligence and we just can't STAN enough for our political queen.

Former president Barack Obama hopped on Twitter to wish his wife of 26 years a Happy Birthday with an accompanying throwback flick of them from back in the day.

"I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today — you’re one of a kind, @MichelleObama," he wrote. "Happy Birthday!"

Along with her birthday tribute, Mrs. O also received a great gift.

It's reported her memoir, "Becoming," is still one of the hottest books on the market. It's been on sale on Amazon for more than 2 months and it's still sitting at the No. 1 spot on Amazon's list of best-selling books. It's the longest top best-seller streak since erotic romance "Fifty Shades of Grey" hit the charts in 2012.

Beyonce also wished FLOTUS a Happy Birthday: 



Let's get it!

That's a wrap! When I think about all the people who have come out to our events over these past few weeks, I think about a little working-class kid named Michelle LaVaughn Robinson—an ordinary girl who had some tales to tell, some failures and some successes, too. She had a lot to learn, a lot to experience, a lot to give—more than she ever could have imagined. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my story lately, and what I keep coming back to is that no matter where we came from, we all share so much. People of all backgrounds, skin colors, and political persuasions can relate to feeling uncertain or overwhelmed. We’ve all been a little frustrated by the slow, frustrating growth necessary to get where we want to go. We’ve all struggled with the balancing act that can take over days, years, or decades of our lives. And I want us all to remember that these are the moments and lessons that make us who we are -- every little twist and turn, every little bump and bruise, and ultimately every joys and every triumph, no matter how large or small. So I hope all of you believe in your story. I hope you recognize that what you see as a weakness might actually be a strength. I hope you recognize the power of your voice. And I hope you remind yourself that there isn't one right way to be an American. There isn’t one way to make your contribution in this country. So thank you all for your part of our story. Thank you for being who you are. And to everyone who’s read my memoir, or come to one of our events, or posted something online, thank you for being on this journey with me. Thank you for helping me continue to become. I hope my story can serve as a boost in your own process of becoming, too. I love you all. #IAmBecoming
