Heavily-pregnant Meghan Markle steps out in towering heels for event with Harry

A heavily-pregnant Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry have arrived at an youth event to mark Commonwealth Day.

The pair beamed as they stepped out their car to the array of photographers and fans gathered with flags outside Canada House in Pall Mall, London.

Meghan, 37, looked gorgeous in green in a custom embellished coat by Canadian and Turkish fashion designer Erdem.

She teamed it with towering black Aquazzura Deneuve bow heels, costing around £570, and a £1,530 black satin Givenchy clutch.

The event is set to showcase and celebrate the diverse community of young Canadians living in the capital and around the UK.

Meghan herself lived in Toronto, Canada, for around seven years.

During their visit, Their Royal Highnesses will have the opportunity to talk to groups of young Canadians from a wide range of sectors including fashion, the arts, business and academia, about their experiences as expats as well as opportunities for young people working in the Commonwealth.

The VIP visitors will also meet young people who will demonstrate a Canadian spring tradition of making maple taffy (maple syrup cooled on snow to make sweets) as part of a traditional ‘Cabane à sucre’ or a ‘Sugar Shack’.

Before departing, they will attend a short reception and watch a musical performance. The High Commissioner, H.E. Ms Janice Charette, will also deliver short remarks.

The UK is home to a dynamic and vibrant community of expat Canadians. Up to 500,000 Canadians currently live in the UK, a figure that reflects the strong, historic and enduring bond between the two countries.

Later today, Harry and Meghan will join the Queen, who is Head of the Commonwealth, accompanied by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and The Duke of York to attend the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.
