Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s visit to Bristol went ahead despite the snow and ice in the city.
The pregnant Duchess of Sussex, who is expected to give birth in April, wrapped up for the occasion, wearing Oscar De La Renta.
However, the Prince’s wife and mother-to-be caused concern between fans as the walkabout in the city could cause the Duchess to slip – especially when she was revealed to be wearing high heeled boots.
It was confirmed earlier in the morning Harry and Meghan’s visit would go ahead despite the snow.
Fans took to Twitter to share their worries, with one writing: “Ice and snow is not safe for anyone to be walking on especially Meghan who is 7 months pregnant.”
Another shared: “I predict that Henry Charles Albert David will practically be carrying his wife and watching every step her feet make in this snow.”
Footage from Bristol showed the road Meghan and Harry walked down being gritted for safety before they arrived.
However, Meghan did not let the weather affect her wardrobe as she stepped out in stiletto boots.
Other fans have reminded people that Meghan used to live in Toronto in Canada where snow is much heavier.
