Watch: Meghan Markle adorably reacts to feeling her baby kick at British Fashion Awards

Meghan Markle wowed at the British Fashion Awards earlier this week, showing off her growing baby bump in a fitted one-shoulder Givenchy gown.

The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance to present an award to Clare Waight Keller, who designed her wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Harry this year.

Now, a fan Instagram account has posted an adorable moment from the event, in which Meghan appears to react to feeling her baby kick, suddenly cradling her belly.

"Baby Sussex is full of energy! Look how he/she kicks mummy hard and Meghan close[s] her eyes," the caption read.

"Baby Sussex is playing polo."

Fans were delighted by the clip, speculating that the loud applause from the audience might have caused a reaction from the unborn royal.

"Little bump was feeling all the LOVE his or her mother was receiving from the crowd," one comment read.

"That blink she gave tells us that was a kick kick!!"

Some critics accused Meghan of holding her pregnant stomach too frequently during public appearances.

"I've never seen an expectant mother hold her belly as much as her," one Instagram user wrote.

"We all know she's pregnant, she doesn't need to bring attention to it every time she's in public."

Meghan and Harry will welcome their first child together next year. The royal couple are set to move into a sprawling mansion in Windsor in preparation for the new addition.
