Royal watchers and fans were thrilled after a representative of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex is pregnant with her second child.
The surprising news was then followed by a stunning pregnancy shoot by the renowned photographer and family friend Misan Harriman.
Taken at the couple's new home in California, the black and white photo features the Duke of Sussex sitting beside his wife, while the former "Suits" star lays on the ground while cradling her very visible baby bump.
At the time, the mother-of-two dons in a bespoke dress made by the famous designer Carolina Herrera.
Interestingly, Harper's Bazaar revealed that this dress has a special meaning. Apparently, the custom-made dress was designed during her pregnancy with her eldest child, Archie.
There's no denying that the 39-year-old former actress has excellent tastes when it comes to fashion.
Even during her first pregnancy, the brunette beauty knew how to style her bump--whether she and Prince Harry are on royal tours and family engagements, Meghan Markle's maternity fashion is always on point.
With that being said, here's a look back at some of the Duchess of Sussex's best pregnancy looks to date.
