According to royal editor Omid Scobie, Meghan and Prince Harry were escorted to the venue by Team Netherlands’ competitors and their family, one of whom was carrying a newborn. However, when the weather grew colder during the walk, Meghan kindly removed her coat and give it to the mum of the baby so that she could keep her newborn warm. In the snaps of the couple arriving at the event, the mum can be seen carrying Meghan’s coat around her little bundle of joy, sweet!
