THE Duchess of Sussex has stepped out in London with her growing baby bump on display for her first ever Royal Variety Performance event.

Pregnant Meghan arrived at the Palladium Theatre on Monday night with her husband Prince Harry, wearing a figure-hugging black dress by British label Safiyaa.

The couple - who are celebrating their six-month wedding anniversary - held hands as they greeted fans along the red carpet on their way into the venue.

The star-studded Royal Variety Performance is a televised variety show held annually to raise money for the Royal Variety Charity, of which Queen Elizabeth II is patron, and dates back to 1912.
