Since joining the royal family, Meghan Markle’s choice in clothing has been a popular topic of discussion. Most of the time, people are talking about Markle’s appearance because it is breaking royal protocol, but her latest engagement — a church service on Christmas Day with Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Prince William — had people talking for a different reason.

On December 25, Markle stepped out wearing a navy midi-dress paired with a wool overcoat, which she wore undone revealing her baby bump. These items, along with her handbag and boots, were by designer Victoria Beckham. While the outfit itself appeared to be quite “safe” (no see-through skirts this time!), it wasn’t until people did some digging on her choice of designer to reveal that her decision to wear VB was actually kind of a big deal.

Back in May 2017, Markle said that she doesn’t wear Victoria Beckham’s clothing because she doesn’t like the way it looks on her. In an interview with Glamour magazine, she said, “Now what I’m starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn’t mean they’re going to look amazing on me. For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don’t have the long torso to support that silhouette.”
While it’s unclear as to why Meghan had the change of heart and decided to wear a VB dress after all — maybe the clothing fits her differently now that she’s pregnant — we love that she felt confident enough to wear something she once thought she couldn’t pull off.
