Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is already killing it in the maternity style stakes.

And no doubt we’ll have plenty of pregnancy outfits to update you on, as we move towards her Spring 2019 due date. 

Of course, Meghan, 37, will likely be showcasing a few outfits that we, as non-Royals, probably wouldn’t be wearing during our own pregnancies – think towering skinny heels, dresses worth £1000s…

Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to steal Meghan’s maternity style, and use her pregnancy looks as inspiration. 

Check out the very best of Meghan Markle’s maternity style… 

12 February 2019 – The All White Dress

The Duchess of Sussex set a clear style tone as she made an appearance at the National History Museum, alongside the Duke, Prince Harry.

Meghan, who we think is around 7 and a half months pregnant, wore her favoured silhouette, this time in all-white.

Her bump-hugging dress was by Calvin Klein, and kept warm in a silky coat by Amanda Wakeley. She accessorised with a pair of suede, olive green high heels.

Elegant! But now she’s in her 3rd trimester… we hope she’s feeling comfy, too 😊

30 January 2019 – The Mini Dress/Blazer Combo

Similar to a recent look, Meghan wore a nude pink mini dress and matching blazer to a visit to the National Theatre.

Pregnant Meghan, who is thought now to be in her 7th month of pregnancy, is royal patron for the theatre, as decided by Queen Elizabeth II last month. 

16 January 2019 – The Glittering Navy Gown

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended Cirque De Soleil’s Totem performance at the Royal Albert Hall – holding hands as they greeted fellow guests, and later as they took their seats.

And, of course, Meghan and bump totally stole the show, this time in a sparkling sequinned navy gown by Roland Mouret, which hit the floor and had a slight slit up the leg.

She accessorised with a black Givenchy clutch bag, and reportedly wore a bracelet belonging to the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Stunning!

16 January 2019 – The Bump-Hugging Beige Mini Dress

Weirdly, this very chic and super smart mini dress is one of the more casual looks we’ve seen 6-months pregnant Meghan wear!

Earlier on the 16th, Meghan favoured a bump-hugging dress as she paid a visit to the animal rescue charity Mayhew. 

The charity is one of Meghan’s first patronages in her role as Duchess of Sussex, and the patronage was awarded by the Queen.

14 January 2019 – The Colour Clash

Meghan looked radiant in a purple dress and a red wrap coat as she joined Prince Harry at the opening of a community cafe in Birkenhead.

Her dress is by Aritizia (sold out, of course), and the coat by designer Sentaler. Sentaler’s coats usually cost between £800 to £1,100. 

So, you probably can’t steal this exact look. Unless you’ve got £££. But, you can take a little inspiration from Meghan dressing her bump brightly, and clashing 2 primary and secondary colours together.

18 December 2018 – The Floral Dress

The former Ms Markle looked elegant in a bump-fitting floral dress at a solo engagement with the Royal Variety Charity. She teamed the lilac look with a long grey coat and matching heels.

It’s thought that the end of December marks Meghan entering the 6th month of her pregnancy… which might explain why here bump’s just popped.

10 December 2018 – The Black Dress

Duchess Meghan cradled her bump during a surprise appearance at the British fashion Awards in December 2018.

There, she presenter friend and wedding dress designer Claire Waight Keller with the Womenswear Designer Of The Year Award.

Meghan looked a far cry from her wedding gown in another Waight Keller design, this time an off-the-shoulder floor-length black dress.

21 November 2018 – The Loose-Fit Dress

The Duchess of Sussex visited The Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington – after helping to launch a cookbook called Together: Our Community, to benefit survivors and those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

She kept her style loose and comfy for her cooking session, wearing a burgundy dress with a peter pan collar, and later a matching coat, both by Club Monaco. An easy look to emulate this winter – if you don’t want your bump on show!

We say emulate, of course, because the exact matches cost £434 for the coat, and £284 for the dress

19 November 2018 – The Halter Neckline

Meghan attended the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium alongside dad-to-be Prince Harry, but totally stole the show in a black and white Safiyaa gown decorated with sequins.

We rather like the halter neckline, and that Meghan’s gone for another belted design to highlight her growing bump 😊

31 October 2018 – The Pleated Skirt

Pregnant Meghan wowed in bright blue custom Givenchy (worth about £2000), and Manolo Blahnik heels (about £480).

No heels or designer gowns for us, but we loveeee the colour and the shape of the dress. A pleated, flowy skirt will flatter any 1st trimester tum.

31 October 2018 – Steal Your Hubby’s Coat

You can’t go wrong – pregnant or not – with black jeans, a pair of matching loafers, and your partner’s biggest, puffiest.

Alternatively, you could simply buy yourself a nice, oversized puffy coat. The North Face is always a great investment piece.

30 October 2018 – The Classic Beige Trench

Meghan cradled her 4-month bump during a meet and greet, wearing a beige Burberry trench and a pale cream dress by Brandon Maxwell. 

An easy look to emulate with a tight-fitting ASOS maternity bodycon and a trench, available in beige in most high street shops. (H&M do quite the selection.)

29 October 2018 – The Tiered Coat

A warm, cosy and flattering coat style. No zips or buttons to do up, so ideal for women with unpredictable, growing bumps. Worn by Meghan on a visit to Wellington, New Zealand.

29 October 2018 – The Raincoat

Pregnant Meghan, in her 2nd trimester, once again favoured comfy black jeans. Here, she also wore a roomy navy rain jacket, a cosy green scarf and a pair of classic white trainers.

Meghan’s exact coat was actually made by a Cornish brand named Seasalt, and is a few years old. A similar jacket will set you back around £150, though.

27 October 2018 – The Peplum Top

At the Wheelchair Basketball final at the 2018 Invictus Games, taking place in Sydney, Australia, Meghan wore a gorgeous maroon-red peplum.

Making use of her preferred bow belt above her growing pregnant tum, the bottom of her top, a floaty peplum felt perfectly balanced.

26 October 2018 – The Elegant Gown

In Tonga, at the Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards, Meghan wowed in a bird-covered dress designed by Oscar de la Renta and Sarah Esmoingt. 

If you’re off to a really posh do, we reckon the silhouette is one to think about, perfect for early stage bumps.

26 October 2018 – The Belted Shirt Dress

Ooh, this classy Veronica Beard ‘Cary’ shirt dress is just gorgeous. It’s got a bunch of pockets *yay* and a thigh slit.

We love the idea of a loose belt or a bow above or on top of your bump… and reckon this is a style that flatters every stage of pregnancy.

23 October 2018 – The Caped Blue Gown

Pregnant Meghan debuted her bump at a state reception in Fiji, wearing a stunning, caped floor-length gown by designer Saifyaa.

This blue, by the way, is called Fijian Blue – the country’s official colour. A lovely touch.

17 October 2018 – The Checked Blazer

Meghan’s seen here wearing an oversized blazer designed by pal Serena Williams. Only £110 (cheap compared to other Royal fashion staples), it sold out pretty much immediately.

Fortunately, copy cats are already all over the high street. A loose-fit blazer is a great jacket for growing bumps, as there’s no pressure to do up that button… woo!
