Meghan Markle was praised for her kindness after giving her coat to a mother holding a baby during her first appearance at the Invictus Games with her husband Prince Harry.
On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were being escorted to a venue in The Hague, Netherlands, by competitors when Meghan reportedly noticed the temperature was dropping and handed her coat to a woman who held her baby while accompanying them, according to journalist Omid Scobie.
Scobie shared the heartwarming video of the moment on Twitter on Friday, in which the royal is seen walking beside the woman, whose baby is wrapped in a long, camel-colored coat.
“On the way to the venue, the couple was escorted by #TeamDutch competitors and family – one of them proudly holding a newborn,” the royal reporter wrote. “Seeing the sudden drop in temperature, Meghan quickly handed over her coat to mom to help keep the baby warm.”
The moment, which was also captured and shared on Twitter from another angle, has sparked praise from fans of the royal couple.
“A good mother is a good mother to everyone’s children,” wrote one person, while another said: “Despite all, she has not changed, is still kind and wise.”
Another suggested that Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, would be proud, with another writing: “Harry found women to be incredibly caring. His mother must be proud.”
The gesture came as Harry and Meghan, who opted for an all-white Valentino suit for their first public appearance in Europe since 2020, attended a friends and family reception for competitor Invictus Games on Friday.
The pair’s appearance marks the first of the Invictus Games, and follows a brief visit to England, where the duchess and duchess visited Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Invictus Games opening ceremony will take place Saturday night.
