The Duchess of Sussex looked effortless as she arrived in Queensland on Monday, wearing another high street must-have as she chose the And Other Stories polka dot Wait Knot Midi Dress to keep cool in the sun. The 37-year-old, who announced her pregnancy a week ago, chose to pair her outfit with a simple ponytail, and a pair of Karen Walker sunglasses - and though she looked so smartly dressed, she actually chose not to join Prince Harry on his official visit to Fraser Island. Harry has reportedly told Meghan to continue taking time to rest during the tour, and the Duchess spent a few hours whale-watching and visiting a spa.

Meghan isn't the first to choose pretty polka dots reminiscent of everyone's favourite rom-com - she joins the likes of Holly Willoughby and, much closer to home, both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex have recently embraced the trend. Her Vivian-esque dress costs £89 from the Swedish fashion store, but it's only available in one remaining size online - so hurry! She also wore her favourite Sarah Flint Grear sandals, which she has been spotted in on many occasions, both before and after her royal wedding.

Her first international royal tour has seen Meghan wear clothes which have much been a reflection of Australia as well as her own personality. During her first engagement last week, the former actress opted for an ivory shift dress by Karen Gee, created by Syndey-based designer - clearly a nod to the hosting country. The classic number was aptly named 'Blessed' – which seems fitting since it was the first outing the royal couple made since announce their baby news.
