Meghan Markle Hits Fancy NYC Restaurant ... With Serena Williams

2/20/2019 6:25 AM PST

Meghan Markle took her fetus for a night on the town Tuesday -- hitting the famous Polo Bar restaurant for dinner with her pal Serena Williams ... and we've got the video. 

Her Royal Highness had a busy day -- she flew into New York for her baby shower at The Mark Hotel earlier in the day ... where friends like Abigail Spencer and Jessica Mulroney helped celebrate the mom-to-be. 

Afterward, it was off to Ralph Lauren's Polo Bar -- famous for its $20 "RRL Hot Dog" -- which comes with sauerkraut, sweet relish & mustard on a toasted brioche bun.  

If she didn't have the dog, she missed out. 

On the way out, 37-year-old Meghan strutted to her waiting SUV while clutching a fancy black Stella McCartney purse. 

FYI, everything Meghan touches seems to sell out in minutes -- guessing royal fashion-aholics already snapped up the remaining stock. 

Serena followed Meghan and got in the same SUV. 

By the way, Serena and Meghan have been close for years -- they met at a Super Bowl party back in the day and grew so close, Meghan even invited the tennis legend to her wedding to Prince Harry

Meghan Markle It's Baby Shower Time ... American Style!!!

2/19/2019 12:30 PM PST

12:25 PM PT -- We just caught Meghan on her way back into The Mark Hotel after lunch at Cafe Boulud with friends. The day of celebration for the royal and her bump continues!

Meghan Markle's celebrating the upcoming birth of her first child with Prince Harry ... and she's doing it on U.S. soil, baby!! Take that, UK.

We just got a shot of Meghan outside The Mark Hotel Tuesday afternoon in NYC. She held her baby shower there and, as you'd expect, she was flanked by tons of security as she got into a waiting SUV.

As you can see ... Meghan's doing the expectant mommy thing, cradling her baby bump with every step. The Duchess of Sussex is about 7 months pregnant, and she and Harry have been hinting the baby is due in April. 

Meghan's flying solo, sans Harry, for this trip. The baby shower could be the last time she sees her friends -- at least stateside -- before she gives birth.

Meghan Markle This Belly Can't Slow Me Down!!!

1/10/2019 8:36 AM PST

Two things really seem to make Meghan Markle crack a huge smile ... holding her ever-growing baby bump and helping others.

The Duchess of Sussex was all smiles Thursday as she hit up St. Charles Hospital in west London, where she became a royal patron at Smart Works. It's an awesome charity ... they help unemployed and vulnerable women get back into the workplace.

Meghan -- who is about 6 months pregnant -- looked stunning in a black dress from the maternity brand, Hatch. She also sported a long, brown Oscar de la Renta coat.

Kensington Palace revealed Smart Works as just one of Meghan's several volunteering gigs. She's also taking over 2 of Queen Elizabeth's patronages -- at the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities -- and working with an animal welfare group.

Meghan Markle I'm 'Very Good,' 'Very Pregnant' You're Telling Us, Girl

12/18/2018 6:38 AM PST

Meghan Markle says she's doing well, but also notes that she's "very pregnant" -- and she couldn't be more on the nose ... as her baby bump grows larger by the day.

The Duchess of Sussex was visiting the Brinsworth House Tuesday in London -- a nursing home that houses British entertainers -- and she was speaking with former theatre actress Josephine Gordon who asked Meg how she was holding up heading into her 3rd trimester.

Meghan replies honestly ... telling Ms. Gordon she's feeling very much like a mom-to-be who's about to pop. Meg asks Josephine if she had any children of her own, and you gotta see their exchange here ... it's pretty priceless. 

Speaking of due dates, Kensington Palace announced Meghan's as spring 2019 ... but didn't get more specific. Based on how big she looks here ... a lot of folks are speculating she's way further along. Meanwhile, others suggest she might be carrying twins.

Spring starts on March 20 ... so time will tell.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry 'Tis the Season For Hauntingly Bad Wax Masks!!!

12/11/2018 7:57 AM PST

Imitation is NOT a form of flattery when it comes to these wax creations, allegedly depicting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

The fake Duke and Duchess of Sussex were unveiled Tuesday at Madame Tussauds in Berlin. You're not looking at wax statues -- those are real people wearing wax masks. Kinda like they do in 'Mission Impossible' ... except these are deeply disturbing and inaccurate.

The couple's been roaming the streets of an outdoor Christmas market -- 'cause nothing puts you in the holiday spirit like the sight of creepy, unblinking royals. As you know, Harry and Meghan are actually very attractive people ... so, we can't figure out how the masks got so screwed up.

Maybe Madame Tussauds hired Cristiano Ronaldo's infamous sculptor?

Anyway, check out the video of Meghan and Harry waxing 'round town ... and good luck getting 'em out of your nightmares. 

Meghan Markle Baby Bump is ... Moonlighting on Date Night

12/4/2018 3:05 PM PST

Meghan Markle and that baby bump are coming along -- it's noticeably bigger since the last time we saw her out and about.

Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex hit up a Christmas carol service Tuesday night at St. Luke's Church in London. Harry, ever the gentleman, led the way for his bride as they slipped out after the service and, BOOM ... there it was!

Her baby bump -- more of a belly now -- was perfectly lit under the moon's spotlight. She's reportedly around 5 months pregnant.

Last time we saw Meghan, she had on an apron and her baby bump barely showed. She's due sometime next spring ... but with the colder weather coming soon, she might want to start thinking about bundling up.

Tick, tock.

Meghan Markle Before Harry, There Was Cory ... Who Sure Looked in Love

11/25/2018 12:50 AM PST

We already knew Meghan Markle had prior relationships before meeting Prince Harry -- but we didn't know just how lovey-dovey she was with her old boyfriends ... until now.

Here's a photo of Meghan cozying up with her old celeb chef flame, Cory Vitiello, while they dined in Toronto. In the pic, obtained by TMZ, you see Meg sitting on Cory's lap with his arms wrapped around her waist ... and him laying a big smooch on her cheek.

We're told this pic was taken at Atlas Restaurant in May 2016 -- which wasn't too long before she started seeing Harry across the pond. Remember ... Meghan and Harry reportedly began dating in the summer of '16, so something must've happened between this picturesque moment and whatever summer month Meghan got fixed up with Harry.

Even more interesting ... both Meghan and Cory went on to get hitched. Oh, and Cory's got a kid now too ... Meghan, of course, is expecting her first child with Harry.

Sounds like a great case of "Good Luck Chuck" that goes both ways. 

Meghan Markle Smiling & Holding On to Her Bump ... Checking in on Fire Victims

11/21/2018 7:14 AM PST

Meghan Markle is back at a community kitchen and throwing royal protocol out the window.

The Duchess of Sussex visited the Hubb Community Kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London ... not far from where the Grenfell Tower fire killed 72 people.

Meghan's been making secret trips there since January ... and last September she was there cooking and helping the women release a charity cookbook with their recipes. This time around she abandoned all formality ... kissing and hugging just about everyone while seeing how funds raised from the cookbook have made a difference.

Makes sense she's treating the women there like family ... her involvement was Meghan's first solo project as a member of the Royal Family. Look at her close interactions ... and the baby bump!!

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Let's Walk Through the (Red)Woods

10/31/2018 8:28 AM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry passed on costumes for Halloween while down in New Zealand, but their choice of scenery screams that they were still in the spirit.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex continued their international tour Wednesday with a visit to Rotorua, New Zealand ... where they checked out the famous Redwoods Treewalk with lots of suspended bridges and towering timber around them.

Considering Meghan's preggo with their first Royal baby ... this is the most strenuous activity we've seen her undertake in weeks. 

As for the stroll itself, it actually looks super peaceful and gorgeous. Pretty romantic, too -- MM and PH were hand-in-hand much of the day.

Meghan Markle Tag, You're It!!!

10/25/2018 7:31 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's just like the rest of us -- aside from her crown, her title and her Prince -- sometimes she just forgets to remove the tag from her clothes. Royal oops?!!

Meghan and Prince Harry had the red carpet rolled out for them Thursday after landing on the main island of Tongatapu in Tonga. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were flanked by Tonga's princess Angelika Latufuipeka ... but no doubt everyone's eyes darted to the bottom of Meghan's dress.

The obvious conspiracy theory is ... Meg, or her wardrobe team, is planning to return the dress. The less conspiratorial take? Someone's ass is getting fired!

We're guessing it's door #2, and giving Meghan a pass for the wardrobe malfunction. For starters, she's about 4 months pregnant, reportedly, so she's got more important things in mind. Second of all, she's built up more than enough points by looking nearly flawless every OTHER time.

BTW ... the royal couple was later whisked away to a reception dinner ... where one of the guests included the "Shirtless Tongan" guy from the Winter Olympics! 'Memba him?!!

Meghan Markle Whisked Away in Fiji ... Over Security Concerns

10/24/2018 6:04 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's popularity is becoming a problem, because she had to hightail it out of a community market in Fiji after the crowd swelled to a potentially dangerous level.

The Duchess of Sussex was jawboning it with vendors at Suva Market to meet female vendors who have worked on the U.N. Women's project "Markets for Change." 

The crowd was so large it spilled into the street and Meghan's security felt so many folks wanted to get close to her security might lose control. The visit was planned for 15 minutes, but halfway through ... she beat a hasty retreat.

Meghan's reportedly 4 months pregnant. BTW ... Prince Harry wasn't there.

The couple is on the 9th day of a 16-day tour of the South Pacific.

Meghan Markle I'm Blue Out!!! No Hiding Baby Bump Now

10/23/2018 8:30 AM PDT

The jig is up for Meghan Markle ... even loose-fitting outfits like this blue gown can't hide what she's got growing in her belly.  

Meghan and Prince Harry are now in Fiji -- the second country in their 16-day autumn tour -- and they kicked off the visit with an official welcoming ceremony ... then headed off to a state dinner hosted by Fiji's Prez, Jioji Konrote.

Harry opted for the classic tux while Meghan slipped into a blue cape dress ... fashion tribute to Fiji. If it wasn't obvious before, it sure is now ... Meghan's really showing. We don't know exactly how far along she is ... the Palace has only said she's due sometime in the Spring. 

Pregnancy looks great on Megs, no doubt. Ditto for those gigantic diamond earrings she was rocking ... which were reportedly borrowed from Queen Elizabeth.

In-laws ... they ARE good for something.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Delay U.S. Tour ... Thanks a Lot, Royal Baby!

10/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won't set foot on U.S. soil anytime soon, as previously scheduled, and it's all because of the royal bun in the oven ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pushing back their U.S. tour from Spring 2019 until Fall 2019, in light of Meg's pregnancy. We're told she's due sometime in the Spring, and they want to give her time to adjust to motherhood before hitting the road again.

Makes sense ... Meghan's already had to pump the brakes on some appearances this month, amid their 16-day tour through Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji. 

There's a silver lining here for those dying to see the American princess. We're told when they do arrive stateside ... Meghan and Harry plan to bring their baby with them. He or she would be roughly 6 months old by then.

One more fun fact ... Meghan will still be an American citizen when she does visit -- she's still going through the process of becoming a British citizen. So, she'll be a true American princess in her homeland. 

As for their baby? We broke the story ... there's a way the kid, a potential British monarch, could also become U.S. Prez. Think that'll draw a crowd?
