Is Meghan Markle Insecure About Her Body After Having a Baby? Prince Harry Assures Her With a Sweet Compliment

Royal fans have taken notice that Meghan Markle looks pretty great after having a baby earlier this year — and it sounds like Prince Harry has noticed too. During the couple’s recent appearance at the WellChild Awards, one fan who spoke with the Sussexes remarked how Harry gave his wife a sweet compliment about her post-baby body.

Prince Harry’s sweet compliment

Prince Harry showed he’s a supportive husband when he paid a tiny but meaningful compliment to wife Markle.

The couple shared a moment with 10-year-old award winner Emmie Narayn-Nicholas and her mother, Eve.

Eve recounted the conversation, telling Hello! magazine: “They were very lovely. When she sat down I said, ‘Oh, you look amazing and you’ve just had a baby.’ [Harry] looked at her and went, ‘See, I told you!’ in a way that we would.”

She added, “It did feel like they were very down to earth.”

Prince Harry got emotional during his speech

While delivering a speech at the awards ceremony, Prince Harry became quite emotional as he recalled that last year at this time, he and Markle were secretly expecting their first child.

Harry became teary-eyed as he shared: “Last year, when my wife and I attended, we knew we were expecting our first child — no one else did at the time, but we did — and I remember…”

He trailed off, but continued, “I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tight during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day. And more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time.”

“And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own,” Harry noted.

Baby Archie is looking more like his dad

Fans of the Sussexes have been eager to find out if baby Archie is going to be a redhead like his dad, Prince Harry, and it sounds like they finally have confirmation. While it appeared that Archie had a ginger tint to his sparse hair when he made an appearance during the royal tour in Africa, now the couple has confirmed little Archie is a Prince Harry mini-me.

While meeting with children and their caregivers at the event, the couple gave a small update on Archie. Markle shared that she recently took their 5-month-old to his first playgroup, which he “loved.”

As for whether or not he inherited Harry’s red hair, they confirmed, “You can see it in his eyebrows.”

The couple spoke with 11-year-old Milly Sutherland and her mother Angela at a reception for winners and the Sussexes were asked about Archie’s hair.

Angela noted: “Meghan said he has and Harry said he definitely is, you can see it in his eyebrows.” She added: “Harry said he’d had no hair for five months, but Meghan told him she had taken him to the playgroup and she said there were other children there with the same amount of hair or even less.”
