Meghan Markle has been praised for showcasing her post-baby body at the UK premiere of The Lion King in London.
For her first post-baby red carpet event at Leicester Square, Meghan revisited her Hollywood roots in a $6,183 black satin dress with sheer sleeves by Jason Wu.
The ‘mesh panel flared dress’ has yet to fall under the ‘Meghan Effect’ spell and is surprisingly still available to shop.
A co-ordinating $3,007 Gucci clutch and matching shoes completed the winning ensemble.
For extra regal points, the 37-year-old wore her hair in a polished bun with sparkly earrings by Greek designer Nikos Koulis.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry looked dapper in a traditional tux and evening shoes.
After spotting Meghan grace the red carpet, a number of fans took to social media to praise the new mother for showcasing her post-pregnancy figure.
One took to Twitter to write, “I get that no one should be lauded for this, but I really respect that Megan, Duchess of Sussex has not starved herself to pre-baby weight because it's ‘expected’ of public figures.”
Another agreed, adding: “Meghan looks better now than she ever has and I though that would have been impossible. That post pregnancy face, body and glow is everything.”

And she’s so beautiful! Postnpartum weight is healthily lost within 6 months after giving birth. Meghan’s size 4 clothes aren’t going anywhere, except back on her body! 🤗

The royal couple met with members of the cast and crew this evening, including Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z.
According to royal reporter Emily Andrews, Beyonce greeted Meghan as “my princess” before the duo embraced in a friendly hug which suggested “they’ve all met before”.
Unsurprisingly, fans from across the globe kept refreshing their social media feed to catch a glimpse of the two ‘queens’ - and were not left disappointed.
“Yes, I’m screaming at the computer. Beyoncé and Meghan hugging, look at our queens embracing one and other!,” one tweeted.
“I want someone to hug me like Beyoncé hugged Meghan,” a second joked.
