Before she was a Duchess, Meghan Markle was always a fan of Canadian fashion brands. Hell, she even dabbled with her own line at Reitmans back in the day. Now that she’s royalty, every designer wants to dress her and it would be easy for her to forget her roots and do it up with couture and custom frocks. But this is our Megs we’re talking about, so leave it to her to balance high fashion with old favourites.

The latest look to get attention on a worldwide stage came Monday when Meghan and Prince Harry attended the official opening of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition in London. She had on a blush sleeveless trench dress and it is fantastic. What makes it all the more awesome is that it’s from Canadian brand Nonie and designed by Calgary’s Nina Kharey.

“It’s just surreal, I still can’t believe it’s actually happened,” Kharey told CTV News of how it felt when she saw the photos of Meghan online. “She looks stunning, stunning. I actually can’t get over how good she looks in it.”

Imagine waking up to find out The Duchess of Sussex stunned at a royal engagement wearing something you designed. Un. Real.

According to Kharey, Meghan’s had the dress for several months but the designer wasn’t sure when she was going to wear it. Guess she’s got the answer to that question.

The dress, which is only available on Nonie’s website, also comes in black and retails for $1,085 so anyone who’s got that kind of cash lying around and wants to be just like Megs, hop to it! It’s a modern take on the royally loved coat-dress and Meghan shines in it. The hemline is perfect and the shade of pink works with Meghan’s tones, though a different shoe could’ve made this an 11. We’re not complaining, though. The more Megs mixes it up, the better.
