Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made their second public outing during their , which served as the perfect opportunity for the Duchess of Sussex to open up about her pregnancy.
Days after revealing she was with her husband of five months, the mother-to-be told a fellow mother on Wednesday that so far she is 'running on adrenaline'.
reports Meghan - - sat down with Emily Carroll, 33, mother to 13-month-old Ruby and a member of a farming family in Dubbo who hosted the Duke and Duchess for tea.
During the conversation, Caroll told Markle: 'They both had a little tickle with her [Ruby]. She’s normally in bed at 10.30am but we had to stay up for this. She’s done so well.'
Later, Caroll revealed: 'Meghan told me that she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she’s running on adrenaline. She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle. She’s made for this royal business, isn’t she?'
She added: 'They’re both great with kids.'
It appears Markle hasn't been suffering from severe morning sickness, unlike her sister-in-law - an extreme form of the pregnancy symptom - at the beginning of all three of her pregnancies.
During her visit to the farm, Meghan revealed she'd also brought a cake for her visit, insisting that even royalty shouldn't turn up for tea empty-handed.
What's more surprising is that the banana cake was homemade - baked at Admiralty House the night before.
'She said, "If you go to someone’s house you always bring something", so she did,' Benita Woodley, 20, revealed.
'She said she was worried about the bananas, that she’d put too many bananas in it. But the Duke said there’s never too many bananas.'
How Meghan had the time or energy to make a banana cake on her busy royal tour is beyond us.
