When Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child , Meghan’s global legion of fashion followers geared up for the next phase in her sartorial journey. Already armed with a sell-out wardrobe , the 37-year-old is well versed in tackling royal engagements and it’s safe to say, her maternity aesthetic has further cemented her status at the nation’s fashion queen. Not one to shun from the spotlight, the mother-to-be kick-started her maternity challenge down under, as Harry and Meghan embarked upon their first overseas tour together. Just hours after news of the royal baby swept the nation, the Duchess of Sussex debuted her blossoming bump in a £940 dress by Aussie designer Karen Gee accessorised with a pair of Princess Diana ‘s earrings – a winning first glimpse of what was to follow. In further proof of her diplomatic know-how, Meghan also packed local labels, Outland Denim, Dion Lee and Martin Grant, in her covetable suitcase. And despite her growing bump, the Duchess has not once strayed from her now-famous style with her go-to styles – we’re talking the tuxedo dress, tailored coat and protocol-scraping flair – still reigning the headlines. But she knows when to steal our attention, most recently breaking her navy stint in a colour-blocking ensemble by Canadian labels, Aritzia and Sentaler. From that Oscar de la Renta dress to her enviable coat collection, look no further for the ultimate Meghan Markle maternity style file.
