The Meghan effect is alive and well – Australian designer Karen Gee’s website crashed after the Duchess of Sussex wore one of the brand’s white dresses on the first day of her royal tour abroad.

Considering Meghan has just announced she’s pregnant with her first child, it seems particularly fitting the outfit she chose is called the ‘Blessed Dress’. You can find it here for A$1,800.00 (approx €1,108.)

The royal couple has begun their tour in Sydney, and are embarking on a 16-day journey around Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

The Duchess paid tribute to Australia by picking a native designer, and Gee is a good choice to cater for her growing bump as the brand’s ethos is all about body positivity and catering to all shapes and sizes.
