In her surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, where Markle Givenchy designer Clare Waight awarded Keller an award, she saw Meghan her stomach swayed. Some looked cute, especially since Waight Keller had designed Markle's wedding dress and she often wears Givenchy designs on official royal occasions, but others considered it overkill, especially when Meghan touched her stomach over and over again.

It's not a new phenomenon. Many users found that Markle held her stomach very strong and returned to the royal tour earlier this year. Meghan and Prince Harry announced the latest addition to the royal family before the escapade.
However, Today adds that baby's weighing is actually a good thing. The medical journal Plos One published results that say, "When mothers rub their abdomen, babies had more movements in the arm, head and mouth than if the women did nothing or just when with their child languages."

Of course, Twitter was not just negative. Several users supported Meghan and her affection for her growing bump.
Weighing a baby bump is a natural gesture in women. You can choose, touch, love and weigh. It is also known to relieve pressure / pain. The irony between supporting women and demolishing women … #MeghanMarkle
