Prince William, Kate Middleon surprised pregnant Meghan Markle on Easter: Details on their 'lovely afternoon'

Meghan Markle, due "any day" now, reportedly got a "lovely" surprise visit from Prince William and Kate Middleton on Easter Sunday.

Harper's BAZAAR reports that, after attending an Easter church service St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped by Harry and Meghan's newly-renovated home at Frogmore Cottage -- also in Windsor -- where they spent the afternoon together.

"William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service," an insider told the outlet. "They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon."

The visit was Will and Kate's first to the Sussexes' new home since they moved in in early April. Also there was Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, who flew to London last week to be there for the arrival of her new grandchild and has been by her daughter's side ever since.

"Meg and Harry are really settled in now," another source told Harper's BAZAAR. "It’s truly a lovely home and they have done such a great job with the space. So much light and positive energy. I couldn’t think of a better place to start a family."

The report of the Cambridges' visit to check in on Meghan as she awaits her first child follows Harry and Kate's unexpected appearance together on Thursday, when they siblings-in-law stepped out at Westminster Abbey for Anzac Day in what proved to be a symbolic move of solidarity as rumors of a rift between the Sussexes' and the Cambridges' continue to plague the royal family.

"There has always been an unbreakable brotherly bond," royals expert Katie Nicholl told Fox News of Harry and William's relationship. "I’m not sure the relationship is what it used to be. But relationships evolve over time and I think theirs was always going to change when Harry married."

Nicholl went on to explain that Harry and Meghan's move out of Kensington Palace, where Kate and William still live with their three children, should provide both families with enough space to alleviate any tension between them.

"Moving forward, with the benefit of not living on top of each other at Kensington Palace and with the infrastructure of having their own household, I think the relationship will go from strength to strength from now on," Nicholl explained. "I hope so because they’re not just two of the world’s most popular princes, they’re two of the world’s favorite brothers."

"I think William sees how happy Meghan makes Harry," she finished. "I think he’s quite impressed by Meghan, her work ethic, how quickly she’s adapted to royal life. Of course … the jury is still out. But actually, I think William has realized that Meghan is probably the best thing to happen to Harry. And their father, Charles, the Prince of Wales, thinks Meghan is wonderful."
