Quite the wardrobe! Meghan Markle will soon give birth to a new royal baby, but we’d be remiss to not point out that she’s had a very fashionable pregnancy. The Duchess of Sussex always makes sure to greet the public in style — and rumor has it her attire have cost quite the pretty penny.
According to fashion search engine Love the Sales, the total cost of all of Meghan’s pregnancy outfits totals £478,920 — and if you’re in America that is the equivalent of about $630,000. That’s more than seven times what Kate Middleton spent on clothes while pregnant, Page Six reports.
Although the former actress, 37, hasn’t exactly broken the bank with every single outfit she’s worn while pregnant. While the priciest outfit she’s donned was a $13,200 Oscar de la Renta dress she wore to the Geographic Society Awards, the Suits alum was also seen in a $35 dress from H&M in during a solo visit to London’s Mayhew Animal Home & Humane Education Centre.
Meghan’s outfits are up there in price, but U.K. citizens don’t need to worry about paying for any of them with their taxes as they are reportedly paid for by Prince Charles. Quite the father-in-law if you ask us!
The duchess won’t have to wear maternity clothes much longer, though, as her first child with Prince Harry is set to arrive next month. While the world still doesn’t know the gender — Meghan and Harry want it to be a surprise — it’s likely that the baby is already a feminist.
I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism,” Meghan said during a panel on International Women’s Day. “I loved that — boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that’s the case.” The pregnant royal also shared her thoughts on boys and men being feminists: “I’ve said for a long time you can be feminine and a feminist, you can be masculine.”
She continued: “And I think in terms of masculinity you understand that your strength includes knowing your vulnerabilities and your sense of self and security, and your confidence comes from knowing a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you should not be threatened about — as opposed you should feel really empowered in having that.”
Until Meghan and Harry’s baby arrives and shakes up the news, we are fairly certain the duchess will continue to sport some truly incredible outfits!
