Meghan Markle Arrives in Fiji in a Chic White Dress and Bow-Embellished Heels

Meghan Markle was a vision in white Tuesday when she arrived in Suva, Fiji, on the Pacific leg of her royal tour.

The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry were received by a welcoming ceremony on the tarmac, and they were smartly dressed for the occasion — pity Mother Nature didn’t cooperate. Handlers came prepared with umbrellas to shield the duchess from the rain, but there was no taming the red carpet, which billowed in the roaring wind.

The ceremony, known as the Veirqaraqaravi Vakavanua, embodies Fijian cultural identity and heritage, and will mirror in format that of the one attended by The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh in 1953. It will involve a number of traditional elements of Fijian culture, including the presentation of the Tabua, and a Kava ceremony. A traditional dance, known as the Meke, will also be performed by members of the Nakelo village.

Markle looked chic in a long-sleeve white Zimmermann dress that cut below the knee, coordinating it with a matching fascinator. Completing the outfit was a pair of black pumps by Tabitha Simmons that matched her clutch.

The suede Millie slingbacks feature a pointy toe and bow-embellishment on a 3.5-inch heel. The shoes retail for $695.

On the itinerary, the couple will meet with Fiji’s president and enjoy a state dinner, as well as observe a traditional dance.

Ahead of her arrival, she departed Queensland, Australia, wearing a fuss-free look.

The duchess greeted fans as she made her way to an airport in an understated outfit that had a luxe footnote. Simple and chic, Markle had on a relaxed white button-down linen top with black skinny jeans and sleek mules by Aquazzura.

The luxury Italian footwear brand’s tan DJ mules are designed in soft suede with a pointed-toe silhouette on a flat heel. Elegant touches include silver-tone round studs on geometric straps. The shoes retail for $560 on Farfetch.com.

Throughout her journey in the Pacific, Markle has also worn heels by Simmons, Manolo Blahnik and Stuart Weitzman.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry wore a dark button-down shirt with trousers — a similar ensemble he had on when the lovebirds enjoyed an outing on Fraser Island one day earlier.
