Tuesday night in Fiji, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a reception and a state banquet hosted by the president of Fiji at the Grand Pacific Hotel. This is a royal tradition, as Queen Elizabeth II visited in 1953 and stayed a number of times since then.
Markle wore a kingfisher blue caped evening dress by demicouture label Safiyaa. Its length obscured her footwear, but for the record, she revisited her favorite Manolo Blahnik BB suede pumps.
Safiyaa was founded in 2011 by Daniela Karnuts with the aim of giving women the Savile Row experience previously reserved for men.
The gown, a version of the label’s Ginkgo cape dress tailored to the duchess’ exact specifications, will set you back $1,431. On their arrival, the royal couple waved to crowds of Fijian well-wishers from the hotel’s balcony just as the queen did more than 60 years ago.

Earlier today, when the royal couple touched down in Suva, Fiji, they were received by a welcoming ceremony on the tarmac.
Markle wore a long-sleeve white Zimmermann dress that cut below the knee, coordinated with a matching fascinator. Completing the outfit was a pair of black pumps by Tabitha Simmons. The suede Millie slingbacks featured a pointy toe and bow embellishment on a 3.5-inch heel. The shoes retail for $695.
Ahead of her arrival, Markle departed Queensland, Australia, in an understated outfit that had a luxe footnote. In a simple and chic look, she wore a relaxed white button-down linen top with black skinny jeans and sleek mules by Aquazzurra. The shoes retail for $560 on Farfetch.com.
