The story behind Meghan Markle’s pregnancy announcement dress

When Meghan Markle announced that she was expecting her second child with Prince Harry on Sunday, she did so wearing a dress with a cute tie for her son Archie.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the pregnancy news with a new black and white photo taken via iPad by photographer Misan Harriman, a friend of the couple.

In the sweet moment, Markle, 39, rests his head on 36-year-old Harry’s lap and holds his baby bump in a Carolina Herrera dress that appears to be in a shade of white or cream.

According to People, the floating dress was tailor-made for the Duchess while she was pregnant with Archie, who turns 2 on May 6th.

The American fashion brand’s creative director, Wes Gordon, has been friends with Markle for years; she herself featured him on her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, in 2014. “I’m obsessed,” she said wrote at the timewith praise for Gordon’s “beautiful, radiant, effortlessly sexy” design.

Before marrying Prince Harry, Markle sat in the front row at one of Gordon’s track shows for his namesake in 2015, and she has continued to support her work since landing in Carolina Herrera in 2018.

For this year’s Trooping the Color ceremony, Markle had a pink off-the-shoulder look to proved surprisingly controversial, and while she was pregnant with Archie in 2019, she wore a blue printed Carolina Herrera dress during her royal tour of Morocco.

The Duchess’ choice of dress was not the only symbolic element in her pregnancy announcement; Sussex’s happy news came exactly 37 years after British newspapers announced that Princess Diana was expecting Prince Harry.
