He’s here! Meghan Markle and Price Harry welcomed their first child — a beautiful baby boy — on Monday, May 6. And what better way to celebrate the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bundle of joy than with a look back at the former Suits actress’ fab maternity style?
Since Harry and Meghan married in May 2018, we’ve been obsessed with the Duchess’ 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 Duchess 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, Duchess Meghan 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.
As we celebrate the birth of Baby Sussex, behold the fab maternity style of Duchess Meghan!
