New mom Meghan wears picture-perfect outfit for royal baby debut

The Duchess of Sussex officially became a new mom to a little boy on Monday (May 6), and now she'll be able to pass down her fashion savvy! For the bundle of joy's public debut, the royal wore the most picture-perfect outfit, sided by her dapper husband, Prince Harry, dressed in a grey suit.

Meghan looked no further that one of her favourite styles, a trench dress, for the momentous occasion. Dazzling in cream, one of her go-to colours, the Grace Wales Bonner number featured a pretty collar, double-breasted buttoning up the front, pockets and a tie waist. She anchored the look with a pair of beige suede Manolo Blahnik pumps.

The designer is a beautiful homage to Meghan's family's ancestry. Per Business of Fashion: “Wales Bonner uses her mixed-race heritage as a key reference in her collections... Her work explores representations of black male sexuality and identity, through exceptional craftsmanship and embellishments.” Grace is of Jamaican and English descent, just like Meghan and her mom, Doria Ragland.

As always, Duchess Meghan had her natural beauty on display, keeping her makeup look simple with some bronzer, a nearly nude eye and a simple swipe of pale pink gloss on her lips. She kept her raven locks voluminous by her shoulders. Letting her beautiful freckles shine through her light makeup, the royal certainly had her best accessory with her – her smile! She beamed down at her newborn baby boy, looking every inch the proud mom she is. As for the little boy, he snoozed peacefully, swaddled in a white blanket with a small hat to keep his tiny head warm.
