And proving that the Meghan Markle effect is still underway, after wearing the elegant, ankle-length dress, it sold out completely online.

The white and grey Pineapple dress has a straight neckline and detachable belt, which Meghan wore in a bow as she took in the views across the Kingfisher Jetty with Prince Harry.

Meghan, 37, paired the dress with her favourite Sarah Flint Grear sandals, which will set you back £187.

And to finish off the chic look, Meghan wore the Karen Walker Northern Lights sunglasses, which cost £221 from Far Fetch.

She wore two layered necklaces for the sunny occasion – both of which have also sold out.

One was a 9-karat rose gold, onyx and diamond necklace by Pascale Monvoisin, which was on sale on Net-a-Porter, and the other was a teardrop necklace from Adina Reyter.

Thankfully if you are looking to replicate the look, it doesn't need to break the bank as Boohoo and Asos have some purse-friendly alternatives…

The royal couple – who announced they were expecting their first child on the eve of their first overseas tour together – are currently on Fraser Island, which is the largest sand island in the world.

The gorgeous island is known for its rolling sandy beaches, lush rainforest and wild dingo population.

Earlier in the day, she wore a £89 claret "& Other Stories" midi dress with white polka dots, sunglasses and brown strappy sandals, as she arrived on the island.


  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will welcome their first child in spring 2019.
  • While a due date has not yet been confirmed, speculation has it around late March or early April.
  • It has been confirmed that Meghan had had a successful 12-week scan, meaning her baby could be due around St George's Day on April 23 – which is the birth date of Prince Louis.

The Duchess didn't join Harry on official duty, taking most of the day off to rest at a luxury resort as he toured the paradise isle alone.

But she later re-emerged wearing her stylish dress from Reformation to greet members of the Aussie public alongside her husband.

The mum-to-be was pictured cradling her growing bump before showing her motherly side as she stooped down to say hello to a shy little boy.

And she looked delighted as she was presented with a teddy bear for the baby by one royal fan.

The Prince earlier met indigenous tribe kids, took part in a spiritual "smoking ceremony" and unveiled a plaque dedicated to the commonwealth.

This is the one native Australian food Meghan Markle refused to try during Melbourne lunch. 

They were greeted with hugs and flowers as they arrived in Dubbo just days after announcing they were expecting their first child in spring next year.

Meghan is said to have told royal fans she was "running on adrenaline" as the couple fit in 76 engagements in 16 days.
