Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced on Valentine’s Day 2021 that they are expecting their second child — and what better way to celebrate the happy news than with a look back at the former Suits actress’ fab maternity style while she was pregnant with son Archie?
Since Harry and Meghan married in May 2018, we’ve been obsessed with Meghan’s classic-with-a-twist style that has redefined royal dressing, and her baby bump fashion choices were just as noteworthy. After raising eyebrows with her roomy Givenchy dress and coat ensemble at Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018, the newlyweds confirmed they were, in fact, expecting, and the world collectively lost its mind.
The couple then embarked on a 16-day royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji, and Meghan confirmed what we long expected: her first pregnancy was going to be a super stylish one.
Instead of relying on maternity brands and styles, the mom-to-be largely stuck to outfits by her favorite designers (think: Givenchy, Dior, Victoria Beckham, etc.) with the occasional high-street piece mixed in (hi, H&M and Hatch!).
In keeping with her minimalist aesthetic, the Duchess of Sussex embraced clean lines (i.e. chic sheath dresses, tailored coats and leg-lengthening pumps) and monochromatic color palettes (tone-on-tone blues, blushes and the likes) throughout her pregnancy, but she also added her signature trendy flair in the form of accessories, hair and makeup.
Scroll down to see her most stylish maternity looks as we look forward to seeing more of Meghan’s pregnancy style the second time around.
