Meghan Markle Wore A £38 Maternity Dress From ASOS During Trip To New Zealand

Meghan Markle might be a celebrity, an actress and a real life royal, but she just keeps on showing us how relatable she is, whether that's by cooking with the survivors of Grenfell or fan-girling over Prince Harry, just like the rest of us.

Now, she's gone and done it again by wearing a gorgeous black maternity dress that costs just £38 from ASOS.

It also comes in a regular and tall fit, plus a number of different colours.

The Duchess of Sussex arrived in New Zealand for the thirteenth day of the royal tour in the A-line, scoop neck back dress, proving that we can all dress like a princess when we want to.

It goes without saying that since Meghan appeared in the high street dress, it has completely sold out online, but if you're anything like us, you'll bookmark the dress and keep a keen eye for it coming back in stock.

Meghan wore the 'less is more' look when she paired the ASOS dress with small black heels and a slightly pricier £430 trench coat by New Zealand designer, Karen Walker, which she complimented with a poppy on the lapel.

The Duchess also styled the outfit with some incredible citrine and diamond earrings from Maison Birks, which are worth an eye-watering £2,255.

Meghan and Harry were met off their private jet by the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinta Arden, where they all posed for pictures.

From there, they all went on to attend a welcoming ceremony where they watched the traditional New Zealand native haka dance and rubbed noses with Māori elders.

Meghan even had a hand at speaking Māori, the language of the indigenous people, during her first speech in the country.

She gave a meaningful and passionate speech about women's suffrage at Government House in Wellington on Sunday.

New Zealand was the first country to give women the right to vote and is currently led by its third female leader, Jacinda Arden.
