Meghan Markle is back from maternity leave — and on royal duty in Cape Town, South Africa.
For her first post-baby stop, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, wore a chic black-and-white look, complete with affordable wedges that she’s worn before.
Markle sported a printed knee-length wrap dress by Maya Miko made of sustainable cotton sourced in Malawi and sewn by craftspeople there.
For footwear, the Northwestern University alum went with Castañer’s Carina espadrille wedges. The Carina has a black canvas upper, a 3-inch wedge heel and a ribbon tie detail at the ankle. It’s available to purchase on Net-a-Porter.com for just $120.
Castañer is an old favorite of Markle’s. The Spanish label’s espadrille wedges made two appearances during a royal tour of Australia, New Zealand and Fiji last October, while Markle was pregnant with son Archie. For a visit to the University of Fiji, the royal teamed the shoes with a floral-print Figue Frederica dress.
Like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Markle has developed a reputation for recycling favored clothing and footwear. Her go-to shoe brands include Tamara Mellon, Sarah Flint and Manolo Blahnik.
Meanwhile, husband Prince Harry wore a button-down shirt, dark pants and gum-soled, beige sneakers for their outing.
