Royal Tour 2018: Meghan Markle's 5 Most Striking Looks

Maija Kappler

After an exhausting 16 days in four countries, the royal tour has come to an end. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their way back to London, where they'll — maybe? — spend a good week or two just lying around in sweatpants recovering from jet lag. (Do royals know what sweatpants are? Hard to say.)

Fashion plate Meghan Markle, who announced she was pregnant just before the tour began in mid-October, wore a lot of great outfits during her tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, frequently making several outfit changes a day. Here are some of our favourites.

Day 8: Suva, Fiji

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend a state dinner hosted by the president of Fiji, Jioji Konrote, at the Grand Pacific Hotel on Oct. 23, 2018.

This cape dress was the standout of the tour, in our very humble opinion. The vibrant blue colour is an homage to Fiji, who features the shade on their flag. The original gown, by German-born, Britain-based designer Safiyaa, is still available online (if you have $1,865).

Day 11: Sydney, Australia

Meghan Markle attends the Australian Geographic Society Awards on Oct. 26, 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

With its tulle skirt and elaborate bird pattern, this dramatic Oscar de la Renta gown is more princess-y than Meghan's usual wardrobe. But her deviation from the norm paid off — this was a memorable and winning choice.

Day 16: Rotorua, New Zealand

The Duchess of Sussex takes part in a walkabout on Oct. 31, 2018 in Rotorua, New Zealand.

This crewneck blouse and pleated skirt are both by Givenchy. The skirt, with its stunning blue jewel tones, was designed specifically for the duchess by the label's artistic director, Clare Waight Keller. If that name sounds familiar, it's because Waight Keller was also the designer behind Meghan's gorgeous wedding dress.

Day 13: Sydney, Australia

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive at the airport following the Invictus Games in Sydney on Oct. 28, 2018.

It's too bad the duchess only wore this burgundy jersey dress by Hugo Boss onto the plane flying her from Australia to New Zealand, because it's a gorgeous choice. It's stylish and sleek, in a lovely colour, and long enough to be comfortable-looking, but still managing to accentuate her silhouette. As a bonus, it's reminiscent of her Invictus games look from Toronto last summer.

Day 5: Sydney, Australia

The Duchess of Sussex attends the official opening of the extension of the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park on Oct. 20, 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

Yes, the royal women have access to a fashion budget...
