The Duchess of Sussex looked perfectly polished at she and Harry had a photo call at Windsor with their new baby Archie earlier this week. While Kate looked equally flawless at the Lindo Wing, it’s inevitable that their styles will be compared and their mommy attire be thoroughly evaluated and analyzed. Considering that their sartorial statements as new moms (or mums) will be iconic looks for decades to come, it’s inevitable that people will want to dig deeper into their post baby presentations.

Here are 5 Special Things Meghan and Kate’s Post Baby Fashions Secretly Reveal:

  1. Honoring Diana

Kate made sure to include Princess Diana in the momentous day of her children’s births and wore a red Jenny Packham dress for the birth of her second son, Prince Louis.

2. Celebrating in Cream Colors

Meghan loves to wear white dresses and coats for important and significant milestones in her life. Besides her white wedding dress by Clare Waight Keller, she opted for a white wrap coat by the LINE for her engagement photo call at the Sunken Gardens with her new fiance as well as a white trench dress for the baby reveal. The duchess loves the elegance of a monochromatic style and prefers white as it never clashes with red, gold or other background decor plus it’s a clean and crisp neutral and is reminiscent of Meghan’s modern, minimalist interior design style.

3. Symbolic Style

Meghan selected a designer for her post baby look with careful consideration. According to royal reporter Richard Palmer, “Meghan’s choice of a trench dress by London-based Jamaican-British designer Grace Wales Bonner was an inspired piece of symbolism for the first pictures of the first mixed race baby in the senior ranks of the Royal Family since the 18th century.”


4. Deliberate Duds

Many news outlets applauded Kate and Meghan for showcasing their ‘mum tum’ following the birth of their babies. The Daily Mail said Meghan was “hailed an icon” for “showing the reality of a post natal figure.” Both women were praised for showing off their postpartum bumps.

5. Crown Jewels

Meghan and Kate also made statements with their jewelry choices. The Duchess of Sussex opted for her turquoise Jennifer Meyer necklace. Turquoise is a powerful stone of protection and is a talisman of kings, shamans and warriors. Spiritually, turquoise has healing properties and provides cleansing energy for the entire body, including energy centers. On the other hand, Kate opted to wear pearl earrings–pearl leads to harmonious married life, expels mental depression and frustration and keeps the body healthy while instilling self-confidence.
