Meghan and Harry made a surprise appearance at Spotify’s virtual “Stream On” event this morning in support of their podcast, Archewell Audio, a Spotify exclusive.
For the occasion, Meghan wore Oscar de la Renta’s sleeveless Citrus Primavera peplum hem dress, her hair down in loose waves and sporting a smoky eye. The couple appears to be in the sitting room of their Montecito home, as evidenced by the ever-present blanket rack behind them and the cream sofa on which they are sitting.
The Stream On event was an opportunity for Spotify “to share the latest on the state of global audio streaming and the company’s commitment to empowering creators around the world,” the company said.
In the clip, Meghan and Harry both spoke about their Archewell Audio podcast.
We’re using podcasting to drive powerful conversations that inspire, challenge and educate.”
The Duchess continued —
We created Archewell Audio to make sure that we can elevate voices that maybe aren’t being heard and hear people’s stories.”
Harry added —
And the biggest part of this is to create this community where you can share, that will encourage everybody else to then share their own vulnerabilities within that safe space.”

This appearance comes after news that Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation is providing aid to the Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support in Dallas, an organization which provides services to women and families who have experienced domestic violence. The damage caused by the record-breaking cold temperatures and electrical outages that Texas has faced the last ten days, due to Winter Storm Uri, forced the shelter to close down for the first time in 35 years. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex supported the shelter by replacing the roof at Genesis’ transitional apartment complex, helping the shelter meet its immediate needs to get back on its feet.
“Not only will this gift provide for our critical needs, it shines an international spotlight on violence against women and children, letting survivors know that they are not alone,” said Jan Langbein, Genesis’ CEO.
Now a look at what Meghan wore for today’s appearance.
Meghan wore a dress by Oscar de la Renta, the Citrus Primavera Peplum Hem Dress, $3,490, from the Spring 2021 collection.
The silk blend dress is described as a 60s-insprired shift dress with “a signature lemon motif which adds a Botticelli-inspired quality”. A dramatic flounce hem adds the perfect finish.

UPDATE: We’ve had a request for alternative style ‘lemon’ dresses at lower price points. Here are a few that we found — Lulu’s Lemon Print Dress, $52 / MELLODAY Midi Dress, $29 / Sam Edelman Smocked Midi Dress, $49 / Kate Spade dress, $59
We haven’t been able to confirm the jewelry Meghan is wearing. It appears in some clips from the video that she may be wearing her 18K yellow gold Cartier Tank Francaise watch which once belonged to Princess Diana (more in our post here).
She most likely is also wearing her Cartier ‘Love’ bangle bracelet in gold and Monica Vinader Linear Friendship Bracelet in gold, $175. She has worn the two bracelets often together with the gold watch.
Meghan is also wearing a ring on her right hand, middle finger. While we can’t see the exact details of the ring it could be her Ecksand Cirque Ruby Cocktail Ring in 18K gold with diamonds (CDN $2135, roughly USD $1600 USD). She first wore the ring for the Endeavour Awards in February 2019.
Watch for an upcoming post on how to get Meghan’s manicured nails and information on nail polish brands the Duchess has worn.
We hope that, now that Meghan has officially announced her second pregnancy, we will see more of her in the coming months.
