The members of the royal family are not spared of their work commitments, not even during pregnancies. As we already have the Princess of Wales epitomizing the same, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was no less. Although her days at the Palace were short-lived, she rendered all her duties as one of the then-senior members of the Monarchy. However, not everything was a monotonous royal visit to embark on.

One such royal endorsement by the Sussexes was their visit to Morocco which was soon followed by a hectic visit to the Atlas Mountains. Nonetheless, the residents made the Duchess feel at home as they gave her and the Duke a heartwarming welcome amidst the snow-clad regions.
