Where is Meghan’s dress from?

Meghan’s dress is £69 from an ethical and sustainable fashion label from Malawi called Mayamiko.

The Dalitso maxi wrap dress is black and white and made from traditional African cloth.

The Mayamiko website describes its brand as  “fair trade Fashion Clothing And Accessories In Unique Designs And Beautiful Print.”

What is the message behind Meghan’s dress?

Meghan’s choice of outfit clearly sends a strong message about a cause close to her heart.

The Duchess, who recently launched a capsule clothing line for womenswear charity Smart Works clearly wants to harness her style influence for the greater good.

Meghan wants to make it known that she is dressing for a worthy cause that supports African business.

The dress is also PETA-approved and vegan – as Meghan is a firm believer in animal rights.

What will Meghan and Prince Harry do on their first day in Cape Town?

Meghan and Harry’s first official visit was to a workshop which teaches children about their rights and provides self-defence classes.

The Duke and Duchess will then tour the District Six Museum, a memorial to the 60,000 residents forced from their homes in the area during apartheid in the 1970s.

They will hear about the work being done to reunite families separated by the regime.

The Sussexes will then join a community cooking activity with former District Six residents.

The cooking activity will be right up Megan’s street as the Duchess helped launch a cookbook with members Grenfell Tower community last year.
