Meghan Markle can barely blink without attracting the frenzied gaze of the public eye. With her ability to catapult even the smallest brand into international relevancy while the world dissects her every move, Meghan’s newly minted title comes with remarkable sartorial power. So when the Duchess embarks on a royal tour, wardrobe decisions matter—especially when the destination is a conservative country like Morocco.
The three-day itinerary of Meghan’s latest trip was a marathon of well-informed outfit changes that aligned with the country’s more modest practices. From the moment she stepped off the plane in a vibrant Valentino dress in the brand’s signature red hue, Meghan demonstrated a deep understanding and appreciation of local customs. The dress fell just below the knee, featuring an embellished, structured cape that wrapped around her elbows to form a subtle yet feminine silhouette. Its striking hue was also an homage to the red of Morocco’s flag, which symbolises strength and bravery—traits not only represented in the mother-to-be’s choice of attire but in her commitment to lending her global platform to various causes, even as the due date draws near.
