The Duchess of Sussex made a starry appearance at the National Theatre on Wednesday, visiting in her new role as patron. Meghan, and her baby bump, braved the cold in a blush pink dress with matching blazer. The mother-to-be waved to well-wishers as she arrived at London's Southbank and was greeted by cheers from royal fans.

Meghan is a strong believer in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together. During her first official visit as patron, the former actress learnt about the work the organisation does; she also met some of the teams and apprentices working behind the scenes.

Meghan started off her visit by joining a workshop with members of the Pericles company, after which she toured the different departments including carpentry, metalwork and painting. Before leaving, the royal was treated to a War Horse-inspired performance by primary schoolchildren.

Let's take a look at the best photos from Meghan's solo day out…

The Duchess cradled her baby bump as she arrived at the National Theatre. She was announced as royal patron, taking over from the Queen, earlier this month.

The visit began at a workshop with members of the Pericles company, which was the National Theatre's first Public Acts production in 2018. Pericles brought over 200 people of all ages from across London together with six professional actors, to breathe new life into the Shakespeare classic in a musical version.

Meghan then met current and former apprentices who are working as technicians in various departments including carpentry, metalwork and painting.
