Royal tour: Meghan Markle sports third Martin Grant outfit for meeting with Tongan Prime Minister

The Duchess of Sussex opted for her third outfit by Melbourne designer, Martin Grant, for her meeting with the Tongan Prime Minister on Friday.

The $1,595 (GBP £881) striped cotton green dress comes from Martin’s resort 2019 collection, and follows Meghan Markle wearing one of the designer’s trench coats twice already on her royal tour and another of Martin’s dresses on Bondi Beach.

The Duchess, 37, paired the chic ensemble with a $2,640 (GBP £1,458) Prada Bibliothèque Bag and her Birks Bee Chic earrings.

Meghan completed the outfit with the same chic ponytail look she has favoured several times on tour, and green suede stilettos by Manolo Blahnik.

The dress is sure to quickly become a sellout, after Meghan wore other pieces by the designer to similar effect.

She previously wore Martin’s trench coat both in Sydney and in Melbourne last week, and then returned to the label when she arrived at Bondi Beach on Friday, putting the 52-year-old designer well and truly on the mainstream fashion map. 

The Australian brand boasts a laundry list of celebrity clients including Cate Blanchett, and Blake Lively and Cameron Diaz, as well as international royals like Queen Rania of Jordan who is a long time fan of the brand.

While Meghan has recycled and re-worn several pieces on tour, Martin Grant is the only label that she has returned to in order to wear another design.

Eagle-eyed Twitter users pointed out that Meghan’s shoes could be khaki green Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.

Meghan later changed into the blue ‘Cary’ dress by US label, Veronica Beard, which retails for $840 (GBP £463), for the royals’ visit to Tupou College.
