Every since Meghan Markle officially announced her pregnancy (on October 15, 2018 to be exact), her fans have been on maternity style watch. We didn't have to wait long to see Meghan's first outfit post–baby news (she wore a white fitted dress by Karen Gee during a 16-day royal tour through Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand).

As she prepares for maternity leave (rumor has it she will give birth at the end of April or beginning of May), I'm taking a look back at her best pregnancy outfits. And, giving you direct links to shop similar, if not the exact, pieces.
