Meghan Markle’s Latest Dress Cost Just £35
By Lucy Morris Posted on 29 Oct 2018
They say celebrities are just like us, but I never believed it until I heard Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wears ASOS. I wonder if she too sends back half her order because it doesn’t fit or look like the picture online?
While on her and Prince Harry’s 16-day royal tour of New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji and Australia, the Duchess has worn some spectacular ensembles. There was that Oscar de la Renta ball gown and that £1900 Gabriella Hearst cocktail dress, but it’s the little black £35 ASOS dress we need to talk about. As the royals touched down in New Zealand, the final stop on this multi-destination trip, she wore this mini dress, which has elbow-length sleeves and a nipped-in waist. It was teamed with a £540 Karen Walker tartan trench coat, which was a diplomatic choice as the designer is local, and a pair of £210 Sarah Flint suede heels.

As this ASOS ‘Wiggle Mini Dress’ is from the e-tailer’s maternity range, it’s quite possible this is Meghan’s first piece of purpose-made maternity wear the Duchess has worn. The mother-to-be is due next spring, so undoubtedly it’s not her last. But, this possibly marks the moment when the bump determines the royal’s fashion decisions.
When I spoke to Meghan’s Mirror - the cult blog that tracks the Duchess’ every wardrobe move - they predicted her fashion sense wouldn’t change over the course of her pregnancy. Though she may start purchasing from brands like ‘Jojo Maman Bebe or even ASOS Maternity’ and chose ‘beautiful bespoke pieces especially for more formal events from her favourite designers like Stella McCartney or Givenchy that are tailored for her pregnancy.’ So far, so true.
