And the third time's definitely a charm! Meghan Markle took her baby bump out for another very stylish spin on Monday night (Nov. 19) as she and Prince Harry made their debut at the Royal Variety Performance, their third glamorous outing in the past week. With her dapper husband clad in a tux by her side, the pregnant royal pulled out all the stops in a stunning Safiyaa column gown featuring a gorgeous beaded bodice.
While she greeted performers at the London Palladium and received flowers from a sweet little girl, Meghan was a vision in the black gown by German designer Daniela Karnuts. The heavily beaded top boasts a black-and-white floral design with a nipped waist and small peplum, plus a very thin halter strap. It gives way to a sleek black skirt with a minimal and polished train. Her tidy bun with face-framing tendrils showed off her Birks Snowflake Snowstorm diamond earrings.
The Sussexes' fashionable outing capped off a glitzy week that saw them stepping out in formal wear a number of times. On Nov. 14, Prince Charles' birthday, the couple attended a royal-studded reception at Buckingham Palace put on by Her Majesty. While the 37-year-old was only photographed arriving with Harry in their car, she wore a chic chignon, which showed off her sparkling diamond chandelier earrings - the same borrowed pair she wore for a state dinner in Fiji, though it's still not been revealed who they're on loan from. This was also when the duchess first made a show-stopping appearance in Safiyaa for a state dinner in Fiji, when she wore the famed Fijian blue caped gown that quickly became one of the most unforgettable looks of the tour.
Last Thursday (Nov. 15), the pair joined the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at a dinner for their Royal Foundation, where Meghan debuted a new midi dress by her friend Roland Mouret. The black strapless design featured a sweetheart neckline with a textured dotted bodice that transitions into a crinkled semi-sheer skirt. She carried a black clutch and wore her beloved diamond Birks earrings once again, which were on full display thanks to her updo. As usual, the future mom put her glowing skin front and centre, accentuated with black liner and mascara and a pink lip.
After a string of engagements following Prince Harry and Meghan's royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga, the duchess is poised to enjoy some downtime before the royals gather in Sandringham for their annual Christmas festivities.
