The Duchess of Sussex visited Brinsworth House in Twickenham and its residents supported by the Royal Variety Charity. The place has been a retirement home for entertainment industry workers since 1911. The Royal Variety Charity, of which the Queen is a patron, assists those who have worked professionally in the entertainment industry and are in need of help and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health, or hard times.
The Duchess spoke to retired West End theatre actress Josephine Gordon, 87, and told her that she is “very good” was feeling “very pregnant today.” Meghan asked her if she had any children, to which she responded, “No, I had a career.” Meghan, a former actress herself, replied, “Yes, that I understand.”

Recently the mom-to-be was accused on social media of being fake and acting too much. The Duchess is pregnant with her first child and she was heavily criticized for cupping her belly too much. Some people on social media called it overly posed, smug and desperate attention seeking move.
During the whole visit, Meghan was cradling her baby bump, to which Georgia Rose, who is a midwife who had her own practice for over two decades, said that moms-to-be touching their bellies is a “beautiful thing.” “This is a totally normal thing that mothers do, and they do it instinctively and naturally,” she explains.
