Just a few days into her 10-day-long royal tour of Africa, Meghan Markle has managed to defy expectations and buck dress norms in subtle and stylish ways, never disappointing her loyal fashion followers. 

After rocking an off-duty casual look yesterday in her Madewell denim jacket, the Duchess of Sussex once again turned heads as her tour continued today.

Starting her day this morning with a visit to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Mrs.Tutu at their Legacy Foundation in  Cape Town with her husband Prince Harry and their four-month-old son Archie, the Duchess of Sussex once again stunned in a comparatively bold outfit, stepping out in a patterned sheer dress.

The ethereal dress, by Club Monaco, featured a pale watercolour-esq pattern in white and soft navy, with a relaxed button-down neckline, waist tie and flouncy hem. The Dremah dress sells for €362.29 and is currently available on the site - for now. 

The Duchess paired the dress with some trusty navy court shoes and pulled her hair back into a neat chignon.

This appearance also marked the first proper glimpse of their son Archie, who had accompanied the couple on their tour but had only been spotted at the airport upon their arrival, snugged up in a woolly hat with mum Meghan. 

The adorable youngster looked happy and energetic in his mum's arms as she carried him to the Legacy Foundation, wearing a pair of H&M blue and white striped dungarees from the brands Conscious range and costing €17.99.

The tot smiled and interacted with the Archbishop, who last met Prince Harry in 2015 when he presented him with an honour in recognition of his services to UK communities and international peace and reconciliation.
