Since Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, announced she and husband Prince Harry are expecting their second child earlier this month, we've seen two maternity looks so far. And much like her last pregnancy, the former Meghan Markle has mastered the art of maternity fashion.

Dress packed a 'powerful message'

Harry and Meghan's recent black-and-white photo announcement revealed more than a baby on the way and also had a connection to the duchess's first pregnancy, according to Carolina Herrera creative director Wes Gordon.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Gordon said, "I made (the dress) for her when she was pregnant with Archie, so almost two years ago."

“There’s a reality, it’s 2021, and we have a world to save, right?” he continued. “This is an undeniable crisis, and everyone has to do their part. ... The number one thing that someone can do for sustainability is hold on to those pieces you buy and use them for a longer amount of time.”

“That’s why I think what Meghan did is such a powerful message,” Gordon said. “She wore a dress that’s no less beautiful, because it’s two years old ... it makes her feel no less special or no less happy.”

Royal fans also pointed out the couple's pose reminded them of a scene from the classic rom-com "Notting Hill."

Lemon look

In her first public appearance since revealing her second pregnancy, Meghan wore a peplum dress from Oscar de la Renta. The most notable detail of the shift dress? It's covered in lemons.

Harry and Meghan appeared in a video as part of the virtual Spotify Stream On event Monday to share details about their new production company, Archewell Audio.
