Effortlessly chic

Becoming a parent is monumental, it’s huge and life-changing and, when it comes to that all important first photo, many mums ready themselves in different ways. Whether that prep includes a full set of lashes, head-to-toe fake tan, or simply having their modesty covered, that first photo is a keeper. So, it’s no surprise then that Duchess Meghan looks flawless in her first public appearance as a new mum.

With a natural look and minimal make up, the new mum introduced her son to the world's waiting media wearing a white sleeveless tuxedo-style dress from young British fashion designer Grace Wales Bonner. The dress had tortoise shell buttons and pocket details and a waist tie accentuating. The Duchess finished the look off with nude Manolo Blahnik heels.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed baby Sussex on Monday 6 May, with the little tot weighing in at 7lb 3oz. In April earlier this year it was reported that Meghan had planned for an at-home birth at Frogmore Cottage. The 37-year-old stood proudly with her husband Prince Harry - wearing in a soft grey suit and navy tie - as a new trio in the St George's Hall in Windsor Castle, as the formal announcement of Baby Sussex.

The Duchess’ sister-in-law – as wife of the future King - enjoyed a different experience when introducing her brood to the world. The mum-of-three stood on the steps of the Lindo Wing with husband Prince William by her side in front of the waiting media.

On each occasion Kate opted for a simple yet stylish Jenny Packham shift dress. In 2013 with her first born, Prince George it was a chic blue dress with a cute polka dot pattern and capped sleeves with nude wedge shoes to finish the outfit. The 37-year-old then did the same when introducing her first daughter, Princess Charlotte in 2015, the Duchess chose to wear a yellow flower print dress with three quarter length sleeves and nude court shoes.
