Meghan Markle chose a classy dress for her speech that is reminiscent of her sister-in-law's style
Meghan Markle showed up yet again with a gorgeous dress at her and Prince Harry's most recent engagement during the 16-day royal tour in Australia.
Upon landing in New Zealand, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, where they 'laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.'
The royal couple also met with Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, and the moment was shared on Kensington Palace's official Twitter page.

Aside from visiting the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, Harry and Meghan took a trip to the recently-unveiled UK War Memorial.
Later that day, the Royals attended a special reception hosted by the Governor-General of New Zealand at Government House.
A LESSON ON FEMININSM
This was a special moment for Meghan: not only was she able to deliver a very powerful speech regarding feminism, but also drew quite a lot of attention with her beautiful Gabriela Hearst dress.
The creation already existed, so it wasn't designed for the Duchess, but it was altered to give her a unique look, which she managed to pull off beautifully.
"Bravo New Zealand for championing the right of women to vote 125 years ago." — The Duchess of Sussex, as she and The Duke joined PM @JacindaArdern and @GovGeneralNZ Dame Patsy Reddy to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand. #RoyalVisitNZ pic.twitter.com/zpFhyPiE8r— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@KensingtonRoyal) October 28, 2018
A SIMILAR DRESS
Hearst's creation looked amazing on Meghan, but the dress was very similar to one previously worn by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
To complement the dress, Meghan wore a necklace designed by Jessica McCormack, a famous jeweler from New Zealand. The piece was reportedly inspired by 'Ta Moko,' the art of marking the skin.
Before reaching New Zealand, however, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games, and Meghan showed her talent as a photographer by snapping a gorgeous picture.
Getting ready for tonight’s @InvictusSydney closing ceremony, where we will celebrate the #InvictusGames competitors, and their friends and families. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will both speak at the ceremony this evening. #IG2018— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@KensingtonRoyal) October 27, 2018
