Is this Duchess Meghan's final appearance before she goes on maternity leave?

The hard-working Duchess has just announced another upcoming appearance - but will it be her last before she prepares to welcome her first child?

Only weeks away from meeting Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's baby, royal baby watch has officially reached fever pitch and it seems there's no stopping Duchess Meghan.
As the 37-year-old enters the tail-end of her third trimester, her schedule is still as busy as ever.
From her A-list baby shower in New York to her whirlwind tour of Morocco, Duchess Meghan is unstoppable and royal watchers will be delighted to know we're set to see her for three more upcoming engagements this month.

On March 5th, Meghan will join senior royals including Duchess Catherine, and Prince William at a reception held by The Queen at Buckingham Palace to mark the 50th anniversary of Prince Charles' investiture.
And to celebrate International Women's Day on Friday 8 March, it has been announced the passionate feminist will join a panel discussion convened by The Queen's Commonwealth Trust to King's College London.
Joining her are five other influential women, including Annie Lennox OBE, founder of The Circle, an organisation supporting and empowering women's lives around the world and Former Prime Minister of Australia and Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership at King's College London, Julia Gillard.
Many fans speculated this engagement could perhaps be Meghan's last before she goes on maternity leave.
However, it's since been confirmed that the Duchess will attend another royal gathering next week on March 11th for Commonwealth Day.

The heavily-pregnant Meghan will join her husband Prince Harry for a special Commonwealth Day event held at Canada House to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth.
According to Kensington Palace the event will showcase the diverse community of young Canadians living in London and around the UK.
While Meghan reportedly confirmed her due date was late April, royal watchers will no doubt be keeping a close eye on both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's calendar to see if anymore official engagements are announced.
With Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Kate commenced her maternity leave about a month out from her due date.

Last year, Kate's final appearance was on April 1st where she joined the Royal Family for the annual Easter church service at St George's Chapel in Windsor. She welcomed Prince Louis later that month on April 23rd.
Kate's returned from maternity leave six months after Louis was born in October, making a solo visit to London's Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden.
We can't wait to see how Duchess Meghan does things!
