The Duchess of Sussex changed into a glamorous kaftan-inspired gown after a day spent in Asni Town in Morocco's Atlas Mountains. Accompanied by her husband Prince Harry, Meghan looked breath-taking in a cream Dior dress at a reception hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco at the British Residence in Rabat. The royal couple spent the evening meeting influential Moroccan women and speaking to the nation's young entrepreneurs and disabled athletes. The Duchess, who is seven months pregnant with her first child, smiled as she chatted alongside her husband, who was dressed in a very dapper navy suit.

Former actress Meghan's cream gown was by Dior and the perfect choice for a warm African evening. We love the elegant draping of the fabric on her baby bump. The royal teamed the stunning ensemble with some golden heels, a matching clutch. The mum-to-be styled her hair in an elegant up-do and chose a natural makeup look, adding a sweep of highlighter to her cheeks.
