The Duchess of Sussex was centre of attention when she made a surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards earlier this week, but baby Sussex seemed determined not to let her take all the limelight.
Eagle-eyed royal fan Pamela spotted the moment Meghan appeared to be surprised by a kick from her baby as she listened to Givenchy designer Clare Waight-Keller’s speech.
The Duchess, 37, was resting both hands just under her bump, but quickly moved one to the top and closed her eyes as she apparently felt the impact of a strong kick.
Sharing the footage to Twitter, Pamela wrote: ‘She felt that kick. Now everyone can calm down about her holding her bump.’
‘Sooooo cute….baby Sussex was not about to let mommy take all the shine,’ another wrote.
The footage comes after Meghan received cruel comments from trolls who said she was ‘irritating’ for continuously cradling her bump with both hands during Monday night’s outing.

However the response was not solely positive; with some on Twitter criticising the pregnant Duchess for ‘touching her stomach too much’, branding it ‘smug’.
