Fans of the royal family got quite the surprise at the 2018 British Fashion Awards Monday night when a pregnant Meghan Markle showed up in an under-the-radar appearance. While Markle has been seen out and about sporting her growing baby bump, Monday’s appearance was a total stunner.

The soon-to-be mama wowed in a black velvet Givenchy gown. The one-shoulder basic black gown was simplicity at its most elegant much like the Duchess of Sussex herself.

As the preggo mama spoke to the audience, she gently cradled her growing belly. There’s that pregnancy glow, and then there’s the Duchess of Sussex radiating elegance and glamor.

Tthe Duchess of Sussex was there to present the British Womenswear Designer of the Year award to Claire Waight Keller—artistic director of Givenchy, who also just happens to be the designer of Markle’s stunning wedding dress. It was a very sweet, personal moment for the two of them—and a complete surprise to Waight Keller.

And so the Royal Baby watch continues…
