Meghan Markle ‘trying to convey modesty prior to birth’ in that £99k outfit

Meghan Markle wore a stunning look this week in Morocco.

The Duchess Cambridge looked gorgeous in a cream gown.

Champagne coloured, the dress flowed over Meghan’s large baby bump.

The pregnant Duchess’s look came with an enormous price tag.

Meghan wore a bespoke golden gown, with flowing sleeves and added embellishment detail.

The dress is thought to have cost approximately £90,000, as it is a personally crafted number.

Her whole look was Dior, and she added Dior lamé lambskin heels, £590.

In her hand she clasped a Dior D-Bee Gold Satin Clutch, which costs £1,389.84.

An old favourite, she wore the Birks Snowstorm diamond earrings, £6,966, in her ears.

The outfit costs an enormous total of £98,945.84, but what was the Duchess trying to convey with her look?

Stylist Lauren Jobling said: “I think she looks like a superhero! It’s quite angelic in a sense and think the neutral colour suits her usual palette.

“As it’s so covered up, I think she is trying to convey modesty prior to the birth as it’s not fitted – it’s not dissimilar to her wedding dress in terms of shape.

“The fluidity or the fabric is quite ethereal and has an earthly feel to it.”

Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha spoke out about the Duchess of Sussex recently. 

She appeared in Channel 5 documentary, Meghan and the Markles: A Family at War.

She said in the programme: “(Meghan) doesn’t have a heart or she would have done everything she could to make him comfortable and reciprocate and and be loving and gracious and make sure he’s comfortable in his old age.

“So, broken heart? No, his heart’s broken.

“She can’t turn herself into the victim here.”

Meghan Markle’s titles include Duchess, but few knew she has two other titles.

Since Harry is the Earl of Dumbarton, an area in Scotland, Meghan is the Countess of Dumbarton.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
