Ever since she joined up with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has faced an unbelievable amount of scrutiny. From the way she dresses, to how she does her hair, and even to how she sits, the Duchess of Sussex can't escape the heat. And one thing she's recently been criticized for is cradling her baby bump too much. Yeah ... we aren't kidding. The Internet naysayers, for some reason, don't seem to like how Meghan constantly has her hands on her belly. However, what some people hate on, other people can celebrate, so we're here to applaud and appreciate the fact that Meghan continues to show her bump some well-deserved love. 

Let's not forget that pregnancy is tough, and if this mom-to-be wants to cradle her bump all day, every day, she should be able to do so without an army of online trolls coming after her. And if there's one thing that all this cradling tells us, it's that Meghan is going to be one loving, patient, and awesome mother. Raising a royal baby isn't going to be easy (raising any baby isn't), so that fact that the duchess seems calm during her pregnancy is a good sign. 

Plus, Meghan and Harry are known to super affectionate in public with each other, so why would the duchess act any differently to her unborn baby? Also, we have to consider that sometimes a pregnant stomach can be uncomfortable, so cradling her bump might be the only way for Meghan to relax. This woman is on her feet a lot, in heels nonetheless, so if showing her bump some love is one way for her to get through her long string of royal engagements, then so be it. No matter what her reasoning is, we're here to support her. And so, here are all of the times Meghan adorably cradled her growing baby bump.
