The Duchess of Sussex visited the Brinsworth House, a nursing home for British entertainers run by the Royal Variety Charity. It was her last outing before joining the royal family for Christmas at Sandringham.
She did not address comments made Monday by her father, Thomas Markle. (The royal family has never commented on his public statements.)
He told “Good Morning Britain” that his daughter has ”always been a very controlling person ... but she’s never been rude” and said he did not understand “the ghosting.” Markle begged the queen to intervene on his behalf to get his daughter to speak to him.
“I would appreciate anything she can do, and I would think she would want to resolve the family problems,” he said. “All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and should be together at the holidays.”
The duchess focused on happier topics during her Tuesday visit to Brinsworth House, where she made crafts and sang with some of the former entertainers who reside there.
She also joked with a resident of the center that she’s “very good” and “very pregnant.”
The former actress and her husband, Prince Harry, are expecting their first child sometime in spring 2019, Kensington Palace announced in October.
“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” the palace said.
She paired the look with a low bun, light berry clutch and gray suede slingbacks.
