The Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a daring black dress that made us all feel like we could gain royalty status.


Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are on the last leg of their Down Under tour. When they arrived in New Zealand, the Duchess set the stage for another admirable appearance.

She wore a black dress from ASOS, a brand that you may have hanging in your closet. She showed a bit more leg than usual as she walked down the jetway.

Markle reflects all women who are looking for great fashion at low prices. Her maternity outfit is believed to be ASOS' "Wiggle Dress." It goes for only £35 ($56) and is available in a non-maternity cut.

She paired it with her black Sarah Flint pumps. Markle later covered the dress with a Karen Walker Banks plaid trench coat. She covered her legs for a reception at the Government House.


According to Express Co, ASOS has credited Markle with a 129% sales increase by wearing their clothing. The Duchess' ability to give brands a sharp increase in sales has been termed the "Meghan effect."

We'll see if it continues as we expect the ASOS dress will be sold out soon.


Later on in the tour, Markle charmed locals by speaking their indigenous language in the introduction of her first New Zealand speech.

Addressing the topic of women's suffrage, she uttered the phrase "Tēnā koutou katoa." This means "Greetings to all."


The te reo Māori language is difficult. However, Markle was excused for her imprecise pronunciation.

She went on to praise New Zealand as they celebrated the 125th anniversary of women's voting rights. They were first country to do so worldwide.

Meanwhile, Harry and Markle looked ravishing in blended black and white outfits for a Halloween event in Wellington.

Markle returned to her usual price tag as she adorned a $1020 tuxedo dress by Maggie Marilyn, a New Zealand brand.


She wore the ethically made "Leap of Faith" blazer dress for the celebration which took place at Courtenay Creative. The prince stuck to a simple grey jacket worn over a white open-neck shirt.

Lord of the Rings Urakhai Orc soldiers greeted the royal couple. The place was filled with creative costumes including ghosts and ghouls.

The pair still has much in store for admirers as they wrap up their tour. It will end on Thursday and then they will return to the UK.
