The Duchess of Sussex looked festive in florals for a morning visit to Brinsworth House in Twickenham in West London. Duchess Meghan is visiting the residential nursing and care center which is home to retired artists and entertainers.
For the visit, the Duchess selected a grey floral-print taffeta Odilia dress from Brock Collection. The dress is described as an “apt reflection of Brock Collection’s romantic and ethereal mood for its Resort 2019 Collection.” Designed with large flowers, the printed dress is made in Italy and tailored for a slim fit with a panelled bodice and coordinating pencil skirt, and features ruched cap sleeves to accentuate its square neckline. The ladylike poplin dress can be easily transitioned into a winter wardrobe with a few additions like stockings, high boots or a heavy coat.
The smoky palette the duchess chose for the visit seems fitting as ‘winter whites’ and slate gray are the perfect combination to look chic and polished during the cooler months. It’s believed that a custom maternity version of the dress was created for Meghan or the duchess possibly sized up to fit her burgeoning baby bump.

During the engagement, Meghan told one staff member she was “feeling very pregnant.”
Upon leaving the center, Meghan once again added her wool coat which was from Soia & Kyo. The Adelaida ash gray maxi coat features a notch collar and versatile waist belt which can be cinched or left open. The $550 duster-length wool coat is described as “classic, elegant and refined.”
