Recycled Fashion! Duchess Meghan Steps Out in the Same Blue Dress She Wore During Her Pregnancy

Just because Duchess Meghan (née Markle) is a royal, doesn’t mean that she’s not allowed to wear the same outfit twice! Case in point: On Monday, September 23, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, stepped out amid her family’s official tour of South Africa sporting a very familiar wrap dress. 

During a trip to the District Six Museum in Cape Town with Prince Harry, Meghan opted to wear the iconic blue Veronica Beard design that she donned just days after announcing her first pregnancy in October 2018.

Unsurprisingly, Meghan looked just as stunning in the frock today as she did nearly one year ago. That said, the former Suits actress did make a few fashionable adjustments.

For starters, in 2018, Meghan paired the flirty number with a pair of pale blue pumps. This year, she went for something more Bohemian and chose to wear a pair of black espadrilles.

Beyond her footwear, Meghan totally switched up her glam. In 2018, her hair was placed in a loose, yet neat ponytail. This year, she wore her brunette locks in cascading, beachy waves.

As for the shoes? We’re going to go ahead and call it a tie. However, 2019’s ‘do definitely gets our vote!

Of course, no matter what Meghan is wearing or how her hair and makeup is done, her smile has always been her best accessory — and let’s face it, ever since welcoming the birth of her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Meghan’s smile has never been brighter!

“She treasures every moment she spends with Archie, who is the most adorable, happy, sweet-natured baby,” a source exclusively gushed to Life & Style. “Harry and Meghan say they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect son.”

Beyond savoring every moment with her newborn, Meghan is also having to adjust to the reality of getting back to work. “Now that Meghan’s maternity leave has come to an end, she’s having to create a healthy balance between work and family life,” the insider explained.

Considering Meghan excels at everything she does, we have no doubt that she’ll continue to be an amazing example to mothers everywhere — in life, fashion and everything in between.
