We’ve now begun Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s epic two-week trip to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. The purpose of their first official royal tour as husband and wife is to focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts, and the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through the Invictus Games (held on October 20 in Sydney).
With their jam-packed schedule, we’re expecting endless outfit inspiration to come our way, courtesy of the duchess, and if Princess Diana’s 1983 Australian tour outfits are anything to go by, Markle’s outfits are destined to leave a lasting impression.
It’s no secret that Markle has a knack for introducing the world to more under-the-radar brands. Before deleting her Instagram account earlier this year, she often posted her love for then little-known Australian jewelry brand Natalie Marie—so we’re expecting some more unexpected designers to pop up in her suitcase.
When royals travel, we often see them adopt the style of the country they’re visiting, as a sign of respect and support for the local industry. Scroll down to see the obvious and unexpected designers we hope the Duchess of Sussex will step out in.
