Meghan Markle Dazzles In Glamorous Blue Dress With A Cape

The Duchess of Sussex wore her brightest, boldest look yet.

Meghan Markle was the epitome of glamour on Tuesday. 

The former “Suits” actress wore a gorgeous, $1,430 blue, caped dress by Safiyaa to attend a state dinner in Fiji with her husband, Prince Harry.

The duchess wore her hair down in waves and kept her accessories minimal ― wearing only long, diamond earrings that Kensington Palace said were “borrowed,” according to The Sun reporter Emily Andrews. Andrews added that the “Fijian blue” of Meghan’s dress is a “tribute to her hosts.” 

Harry looked equally as formal in a tuxedo.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on a 16-day royal tour with stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. Tuesday is the couple’s first day in Suva, Fiji. 

The couple began the day with a traditional ceremony, called the Veiqaravi Vakavanua, which celebrates Fijian identity and culture and is meant to welcome honored guests, according to the Ministry for Pacific Peoples.

The tour kicked off on Oct. 16 amid exciting news, as Kensington Palace announced the newlyweds were expecting their first child in spring 2019. Because of the pregnancy, Meghan stepped back from a few events on the tour. 

“After a busy program, the Duke and Duchess have decided to cut back the Duchess’s schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half” of their tour, the palace told The Sydney Morning Herald
