If there's one thing we all know not to do when having an encounter with a pregnant lady is to comment on their size.

However, it seems some people have not gotten the memo because one woman was just recorded calling Meghan Markle a "fat lady" during a recent outing to visit one of her new patronages.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, was visiting the animal charity Mayhew when the exchange took place.

While greeting the mom-to-be, Peggy McEachrom complimented Meghan, calling her a "lovely lady," but those were not the only words she had for the royal.

"And you’re a fat lady!" Peggy said while pointing at the former actress' growing baby bump.

As usual, Meghan was a very good sport, laughing off the bold remark before saying, "I'll take it!"

Peggy and Meghan continued their conversation, during which the older lady shared her predictions about the baby's sex.

“Glad to see you so well. You’ll soon be having a little baby boy!” Peggy informed the expecting mom.

“Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy?” Meghan said, before adding that even she and Harry don't know what they're having.

"It’s a surprise. We don’t know what we’re having. I ask everyone what they think, and everyone has a very strong opinion about it," the Suits alum added.

While we don't know the gender of the royal baby, earlier this week Meghan revealed to some well-wishers that the she/he will be here soon.

She confirmed that she is six months pregnant and is due in late April.

"She said her pregnancy had gone so quickly," one royal watcher told the outlet. "I asked her how she was coping on those high heels. She said, 'One day at a time!'"

Despite being heavily pregnant and nearing the third trimester, the duchess has recently taken on more responsibilities.

Her Royal Highness has become the patron of four organisations that "reflect the causes and issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare."

In addition to the Mayhew and Smart Works, Meghan, who has been interested in these causes long before becoming a member of the royal family, took over two patronages from the Queen - The National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
