What the Queen thinks about Duchess Meghan working late into her pregnancy

She's charmed the world, but what does the Queen think?

Just weeks out from giving birth, Duchess Meghan's work ethic and stamina has been undeniable of late, especially after touring Morocco with husband Prince Harry in February.
And it's been reported that Queen Elizabeth herself has been impressed with Meghan's hard work, saying she was "amazed" by her "energy and stamina" in light of her determination to see her work through to the end - no matter how much her tummy grows.

Speaking to respected royal reporter Kate Nicholls of Vanity Fair, a royal aide revealed: "The Queen is amazed by the duchess's energy and stamina given that she is so heavily pregnant."
The source went on to explain for the Queen's generation, pregnant women did things quite differently, choosing to hide their bump and put their feet up at the later stages of their pregnancy - but not Meghan.
"She respects hard work and loyalty above everything," the source said.

In fact, Meghan has impressed the Queen so much that the source revealed the she may even write Meghan and Harry a thank-you note to share her gratitude for their dedication.
"There may well be a letter waiting for the duke and duchess when they return," the source said.
Impressing the Queen is no small feat, in fact it's very rare for her to open up praise for her family for carrying out their legal duties.

Meghan and Harry's royal tour of Morocco came to a close after three days of activities for the young parents-to-be.
The pair met with a number of charities and spoke about social issues surrounding the country - particularly for women.
On their second day, Harry and Meghan visited the town of Asni to learn about a Moroccan Non-Government-Organisation called Education For All, which works to create safe environments for girls by housing them in dormitories right next to their schools.

A staunch feminist herself, the visit was a poignant one for Meghan who has a strong passion for women's rights and their access to education.
The following day, the pair visited a social entrepreneurs market where they spoke to creatives about their work.
Now, the pair will head back to London - they're set to appear alongside the rest of the royal family for 50th anniversary celebration of Prince Charles' investiture on March 5.
