Meghan Markle seems to have glided through her pregnancy with ease.
Meghan was on his way in the early days.
News that the former Suits star was expecting her first child came when the couple embarked on their first long-distance journey abroad.
The busy 16-day trip to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga included around 76 assignments.
In the drought-stricken city of Dubbo, the duchess told farmer Emily Carroll that she felt pretty good until now & # 39; and & # 39; adrenaline ran & # 39 ;.
But after a late night at the opening ceremony in Sydney on October 21, after the two-hour event, she made an organized meeting with the competitors of Invictus Games.
Harry urged Meghan to get himself started during the marathon trip and the future mother chose to rest.
A royal source said at the time that she was "not sick, just tired" and wanted to participate in everything.
She added: "We must try to steer her. We must ensure that she is well prepared and not exaggerating.
"She had a very late night last night.
"She wants to do everything, but Prince Harry encourages her to control herself."
Precautions were taken in Tonga because of the Zika virus, which can be contracted by mosquito bites.
The original plan was for Duke and Duchess to walk together through the Tuloa forest, but ultimately only Harry did.
During a visit to the Royal Variety nursing home in Twickenham on December 18 to meet retired actors, directors and entertainers, Meghan revealed that she & # 39; very pregnant & # 39; used to be.
Speculation grew that the baby had to come soon when Meghan told benefactors on Christmas Day: "We are excited. We are almost there. & # 39;
And in the Queen's Christmas message, the prince said about the baby that it was "expected soon."
Harry, who called the baby "our little bump", and Meghan are ready to raise their baby in Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate, a decision that led to rumors about a gap between Meghan and Kate.
But on Christmas Day, the two duchesses all laughed together as they walked to church.
Kate told readers at the University of Leicester that she is looking forward to Harry and Meghan's baby and says, "It's such a special time to have more kiddies," and added that it would be wonderful for her children to have a new cousin.
Meghan is physically fit during her pregnancy, but there has been emotional sadness.
Her estranged father Thomas Markle, who missed his daughter's wedding after ill health and was caught taking paparazza photos, gave interviews claiming Meghan missed him & # 39; and that she had not spoken to him for months and not on his daily text messages.
A heartbreaking Thomas Markle was thrown at the Duchess of Sussex because he did not respond to his repeated attempts to make contact.
Meghan has not spoken to her father since she married Prince Harry in May, he says.

Close friends of Meghan eventually challenged the reports and told the American magazine People: "He has never been called; he has never had an SMS. It is super painful."
Five of her confidants also spoke out in an attempt to combat "global harassment" against her.
Markle denied the allegations and then released a very personal letter that his daughter had written to him after her marriage.
While it is becoming increasingly unlikely that the royal baby will meet his maternal grandfather, the boy or girl has already been embraced by a West London community as part of the family.
Cooking in a Hubb Community Kitchen, which Meghan visited as part of her support for the Grenfell cookbook, lovingly told the Duchess that her baby would be considered their "grandchild."
The duchess was busy in the months prior to birth and continued her plan to lay the ground that her royal life was given as new life by announcing her first four patronages.
In January, Meghan became patron of the National Theater, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the animal welfare organization Mayhew and Smart Works, which provides high-quality interview clothes and training for unemployed women in need.
During a visit to Smart Works in northern Kensington, London, she defended the power of women who supported each other, and added: "It's not just about donating your clothes and seeing where they end up – but to be a real part of each other's success stories as women. "
A few days later, on a day trip to Birkenhead in January, Meghan, a half-month pregnant woman, said the date of her expiration date was late April or early May.
There had been speculation that the Duchess could give birth in March because of her big bump.
Meghan also told nine-year-old Kitty Dudley that she didn't know if she had a girl or a boy when she was questioned about baby names.
The duchess was known for regularly rocking her hump during public appearances.
There were trips to Meghan's other new patronages, with the Duchess Minnie cuddling the dog on Mayhew and visiting the National Theater and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
On a day trip to Bristol amidst winter snowstorms, Meghan and Harry saw the Bristol Old Vic theater.
And at the One25 charity, the duchess came up with the idea of writing personal messages of love and empowerment for street workers in Bristol to find bananas in food packages when they have access to support for the night's assistance.

Meghan was also on the road to celebrate glamorous evening gala & # 39; s including the premiere of Cirque du Soleil & # 39; s Totem at the Royal Albert Hall and a special screening of The Wider Earth at the Natural History Museum.
Harry joked "There is a heavy baby there" at a reception for the Endeavor Fund Awards when Meghan was seven months pregnant.
Pre-birth celebrations include a solo trip to New York City, where the American former actress came into contact with friends, including stylist Jessica Mulroney and attended an exclusive baby shower, with the private jet trip and penthouse suite, allegedly funded by friends , said to have cost around £ 300,000.
The heavily pregnant Royal also conducted an official overseas tour in her third trimester, when she and Harry traveled to Morocco at the request of the British government.
In early March, the Duchess went to the Queen and other royals at a special reception in Buckingham Palace to mark 50 years since the Prince of Wales was invested with his title.
She also made a surprise appearance on stage with Harry during the WE Day UK event in London, and performed a solo engagement on International Women's Day (IWD).
The duchess revealed that she is not reading newspapers or engaged in Twitter to prevent her from being confused & # 39; became positive and negative due to the & # 39; noise & # 39; when she joined a star-studded panel of feminists and national figures about IWD.
The Duchess of Sussex joins the unique of today #International Women's Day panel convened by @QueensComTrust, to discuss the obstacles that women face and the global opportunities that can be unlocked if girls and women are treated fairly and equally as men. # IWD2019 #IWDxQCT pic.twitter.com/qyWsUj3aSH
