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.

As if we needed anymore proof that Prince Harry is ready to be a dad. During his visit to Birkenhead , England, on Monday, the Duke of Sussex shared an incredibly sweet moment with four-year-old Eliza Morris after he caught sight of her sign. It read “#GingersUnite” and helped her stand out in the crowd. “I love this,” Harry reportedly said to Eliza as he went in for a hug, again breaking royal protocol. “Do you love your hair? The sign is amazing!” Harry and Meghan are getting ready to welcome their first child. While we don’t know yet if it will be a boy or girl , Meghan did reveal she’s due sometime in late April .

A royal source tells ET the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn't intentionally miss out on the bash.
With the likes of Jenny Packham, Alexander McQueen and Erdem on speed dial, the Duchess of Cambridge has curated a seriously impressive Kensington Palace wardrobe over the years. In her pre-Duchess days, the 37-year-old was often photographed in high street labels but after wedding Prince William in an Alexander McQueen dress (rumoured to have cost £250,000) back in 2011, the fashion industry’s ears soon pricked up. Dubbed ‘The Kate Effect’, the mother-of-three’s royal closet reportedly contributes a cool £1 billion to the economy with a large number of her ensembles garnering sell-out status within a mere matter of hours. But with the need to dress diplomatically on trips abroad (who can forget the £12,000 outfit she donned in Paris last year?) and a seriously coverable maternity wardrobe behind her, it’s hardly surprising. From that time she wore head-to-toe Gucci in London to her unofficial position as a Jenny Packham ambassador, these are the Duchess of Cambridge’s most memorable high-fashion moments of all time.
