Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have been dubbed as “pregnancy twins” after they did a similar thing during the third trimester of their respective pregnancies.

Hanna Fillingham, a journalist for Hello! magazine, revealed that Markle was given a gorgeous henna tattoo during her visit to the Education for All boarding house in Asni Town, Atlas Mountains. Markle received a henna flower on her right hand to celebrate her pregnancy as part of a Moroccan tradition, which was given to her by 17-year-old girl Samira, who has been residing in Asni for the past six years.

Middleton also received a henna tattoo during one of her royal engagements with Prince William. But this isn’t the most surprising detail about the two royals. The publication noted that it was also in the month of February, while the Duchess of Cambridge was pregnant with Prince Louis, that she got her henna tattoo.

Just like Markle, Middleton also received a small flower design on her right hand when she traveled to Sunderland. Georgina Laud, a journalist for Express, claimed that there is a reason why pregnant women are given henna tattoos.

She said that the removable tattoo is believed to protect and bless the mother and child from evil spirits during labor. The tattoo may also be applied after pregnancy to deter the same spirits from causing diseases, depression, and more.

Markle is in Morocco for a three-day tour with Prince Harry. The royal couple arrived in the country on Saturday night. On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge proved that they are natural with children when they bonded with some tykes during their outing.

They also attended a reception hosted by the British ambassador to Morocco at the British Residence in Rabat on Sunday night. Markle stunned in her cream Dior dress at the time. Prince Harry, on the other hand, wore his signature coat, suit and tie to the gathering.
