Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Parenting Skills on Display with Young Sisters in Morocco
The expectant parents, who will welcome their first child this spring, shared a sweet moment with two young sisters who waited patiently to meet them during their tour in Morocco.
Clare Minejam, a mom from Northern Ireland who now lives in nearby Marrakesh, brought her two young daughters to see the couple. Rania, 5, and Rayhana, 2, waved Moroccan and British flags as the couple made their way into one of their first engagements of the day in the Atlas Mountains region.
“Most Moroccans know who they are — it’s a Facebook world and people watched the wedding,” says Minejam, whose husband Khalid is from Morocco.
Meghan and Harry spotted the adorable little girls, who wore red party dresses to match the country’s flag, as they left. Meghan immediately made her way over to the sisters and bend down to greet them.
Meghan shook their hands and said: “Hi girls, so cute! What are are your names?”
She then showed them her henna tattoo, which she received earlier in the day to mark her seven months of pregnancy. “Nice, isn’t it? So pretty,” she said.
Earlier this month, five of Meghan’s closest friends opened up to PEOPLE for the first time about the woman they know and love.
“Who you see at walkabouts, when she crouches down to talk to the kids and genuinely has real conversations with people, that’s Meg,” a former costar tells PEOPLE. “That’s how she crouches down with our kids at home. How she plays with them. That’s how she engages with people and how she always has. She asks their names; she listens to their stories. And she’s genuinely interested. we see a person who treats everyone the same. And she is the same person, through everything around her has changed.”
