Meghan Markle's best maternity fashion moments so far.

Meghan’s Markle’s wardrobe has always been a thing of wonder, but her maternity fashion game is next level.

Renowned for making statements using style, her gorgeous baby bump has now taken centre stage. And she dresses it so well. (Or rather her stylist Jessica Mulroney does but, details…)

First was ‘The Kate Middleton Effect‘ (where Duchess Catherine could wear a literal bin bag and it’d sell out), so there had to be an equivalent for Meghan. Thus ‘The Markle Sparkle’ was born and we must admit, it has a pretty nice ring to it.

Here, our favourite Meghan Markle maternity style moments so far:

The last look before Meghan reportedly left to go on 'maternity leave,' the Duchess paid tribute to the victims of the Christchurch terrorist attacks at New Zealand House in London. According to Fashionista, her roomy and baby-bump-accommodating black coat in a vintage number which she wore over a black dress, heels and a satin clutch.

Notably, her Discologo Suds ($302) earrings were a gift from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who Meghan is said to be friends with.

Fellow famous pal, Victoria Beckham can be credited with Meghan Markle's chain-detail midi dress for her official Commonwealth Day celebrations with the royal family at Westminister Abbey. The Queen, Duchess Catherine and Prince William were also in attendance, in which they commerorated the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth.

Not only did Meghan Markle sport a 60s inspired mini dress for her International Women's Day panel with former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, model and activist Adwoa Aboah and singer Annie Lennox. Spectators also suggested her monochrome look was a nod to the Suffragette white tones worn by the 1900s women's suffrage movement in the UK and US.

Surprisingly, the Duchess' dress was a particularly affordable option from high street designer Reiss (which has since sold out), which she combined with black court heels and a blazer.

A shimmering delight.

Celebrating her father-in-law's 50th anniversary of being the Prince of Wales, the Duchess went for a metallic-toned, floral brocade dress with a tailored, cream coat from British designer Amanda Wakely. She then softened her otherwise prim and proper look with a loose bun.

Shimmering shamrock tones were the order for her Commonwealth Day visit with Prince Harry to Canada House in London, where she learnt how to make maple taffy. Her bespoke coat and dress is from Canadian-born, British designer, Erdem, which she wore with her staple bow-backed heels from Aquazzura and a Givenchy clutch.

Later in the tour, the Duchess of Sussex changed into a custom made, embroidered blue Carolina Herrera gown to meet the King of Morocco... and suddenly we're decidedly a lot less excited for coat season that's about to envelope the Southern Hemisphere .

To cap off her Moroccan tour de force, Meghan straddled the line between draped elegance and comfort in another bespoke number, this time from Paris fashion house Dior. The Duchess looked effortlessly elegant and captivating in her long-sleeve number which she paired with a sleek low bun, diamond statement earrings from Canadian label Birks (which can be yours for a casual $12,500) and a Dior clutch.

Think of this as a guide in Duchess-approved flying attire. Meghan elevated her active wear with a camel coat and a cap for a turn that looks a little edgy and street-style inspired.

Meghan is an all-white delight.

Royal and effortlessly stylish and chic, Meghan Markle spin on the white shirt has us itching to do the same. Both her crisp blouse and long-length pencil skirt are from Givenchy, the same designer as her wedding dress.

We couldn't look away from Meghan's statement, olive suede boots she wore while on an official visit with Prince Harry in Bristol England. The fancy footwear is from Sarah Flint, which royal fans might remember as the maker of her trusted tortoiseshell heels which got a significant workout during her Australian tour.

You can get yourself a pair for a hefty $975.05, but you'll have to join the wait list. The boots are available in a black suede too, but the majority of sizes are also sold out (dammit).

We're getting ballerina-vibes from the Duchess' look she wore on her London visit to meet with The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). She looked smart and chic clothed in a black Givenchy coat, pleated dress and nude pointed pumps.

Utterly delightful.

Peachy keen.

Visiting London's National Theatre as part of her royal patron duties, the Duchess' baby bump was clearly visible in her all peach ensemble. Meghan turned to one of her go-to designers, Brandon Maxwell, for her chic frock and blazer and teamed the look with a pair of white Aquazzura heels and a clutch by Carolina Herrera. Her dress and blazer have since sold out, but you can purchase her heels (they're available in black) and the clutch, albeit in a different pattern here.

Stunning in sequins.

Meghan delighted us normalfolks by wearing a knit dress by high street brand H&M for an engagement at the Mayhew Animal Welfare Charity in London. We'll not ask how much the Armani coat cost...
