Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit an equestrian centre in Rabat

Heavily pregnant Meghan cut a casual figure in jeans and a Breton t-shirt as she arrived at an equestrian sports centre with Prince Harry on the couples final day in Morocco. 

The mother-to-be, who has been seen in a variety of brand new designer pieces of late, chose to recycle an old jacket today.

She paired her ensemble with a £136 khaki anorak by J Crew that she has previously been pictured wearing during the early days of her relationship with Harry and while she was still living in Toronto.

Meghan wore her brunette locks in a sleek ponytail as she and Harry arrived hand in hand at the stables.

And while she certainly opted for a more dressed down look this morning the Duchess added a little glamour to her ensemble in the form of a pair of heeled black ankle boots. 

The couple arrived to an unusual welcome committee in the form of the horses, who poked their heads out of their stables upon their arrival.  

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are visiting the Moroccan Royal Federation of Equestrian Sports to learn more about Morocco’s developing programme of supporting children with special needs through equine therapy. 

The royal couple are set to attend a horse grooming session with some of the children, before watching a riding demonstration and meeting trainers and instructors.

The visit will also see Harry and Meghan meet young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who have benefited from the programmes at the centre as well as a mental health charity and individuals involved. 

Following their visit to the equine centre the couple will be given the opportunity to grab a bite to eat when they attend a cookery demonstration at Villa des Ambassadors.

Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, will join children from under-privileged backgrounds in Rabat where they will learn traditional Moroccan recipes from one of Morocco’s foremost chefs. 

It seems that they pair will be celebrating shrove Tuesday early as they are set to make pancakes with the children today. 

The Duke and Duchess will meet disabled children who are working in a specially-designed restaurant in Rabat, as well as view local artisan cookery-ware. 

Their final engagement of the day will see the royal couple attend a Social Entrepreneurs event and market in the Andalusian Gardens.

Issuing a clarion call to feminists, Meghan told a group of female executives and entrepreneurs that women around the world need to push the boundaries to advance their cause. ‘Women have to challenge everywhere in the world,’ she said.

The evening event was hosted by British ambassador Thomas Reilly and his wife Leah at their official residence in the capital of Rabat – a city which has been rocked by riots in recent days.

The appearance rounded off a busy second day of engagements, which saw Harry, 34, and Meghan travel to the town of Ansi in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains to visit a secondary school and meet pupils.
