In what might be called the understatement of the year, a lot has changed since Meghan’s first pregnancy in late 2018 and early 2019. Because of these changes – including the fact that we are still in the throes of a global pandemic – we aren’t seeing as much of Meghan and, consequently, what she’s wearing during her second pregnancy. Thankfully, we have looks from Meghan’s first pregnancy to look back on, including two royal tours’ worth of outfits to admire. Meghan’s pregnancy with Archie was punctuated with many, many high-end designers – Dior, Valentino, Carolina Herrera and Givenchy – but also with pieces that you and I could afford without the purchases completely breaking our banks. Here’s a few affordable looks from Meghan’s maternity style that us regular folks can fill our closets with.
Aritzia was one of Meghan’s favorite lines while pregnant, and I love her in this blazer by the brand while she and Harry were on tour in Morocco in February 2019. (It looks like Aritzia is currently out of the white, but you can get the exact same style in black.)

Meghan’s denim game was strong during pregnancy. She wore these J. Crew high-rise toothpick jean in Charcoal ($128) while on tour in New Zealand in October 2018, and, at the Invictus Games Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge in October 2018, Meghan wore The Looker Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans jeans from Mother Denim ($196). Meghan also favored the brand Outland Denim ($190) during these months.

Since Meghan was pregnant during cooler months she wore a lot of coats during the chilly winter months in London, so we couldn’t always see the look she had on underneath. In January 2019 for her official visit to Smart Works as Royal Patron, Meghan famously put Hatch on the map wearing The Eliza Dress ($228 still available) by the label (she may have also worn Hatch’s maternity jeans ($248) while in New York, February 2019).
(Clockwise) At Hubb Community Kitchen, November 2018 wearing Club Monaco ‘Sallyet’ dress / January 2019 at the Mayhew in H&M / International Women’s Day, March 2019 wearing Reiss, the ‘Azzura Swirl’ dress.

Meghan wore plenty of heels during her pregnancy, but did wear flats on occasion, like these Birdie’s ‘The Blackbird’ ( $140 – click here for $20 off your first order) that she wore in New Zealand in October 2018. That same month but this time in Australia, Meghan opted for these Rothy’s point flats ($140 – click here to receive $20 off your order).
More recently Meghan wore these maternity style pieces in March and April 2021.
For her interview with Oprah in March of this year, Meghan wore:
Jacket: J. Crew perfect light-weight jacket ($128)
Shirt: white button-down shirt – try these styles from Artizia – Ocala Button-Up Shirt ($88) or the Everlane – the Linen Relaxed shirt ($58)
Boots: Hunter Tall Rain Boots in black ($160)
For the couple’s pregnancy announcement photo in March 2021, Meghan wore this dress from La Ligne, the Pyper style in sage, $395 (currently unavailable).
Finally, for a special surprise appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden, she wore what appears to be a navy blue smocked puff sleeve dress. We’re thinking it could be this dress from Rhodes – the Harper Off-The-Shoulder Shirred Cotton-Gauze Maxi Dress, retail $365.
