Days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared the news of their second pregnancy with the world via a powerful image, the designer behind the magnificent dress speaks up the inspiring message the outfit emboldens.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Wes Gordon, the creative director of Carolina Herrera, spoke about the dress and the exposure it garnered for the brand on Valentine’s Day when the royal couple made the news.

Gordon, a longtime friend of the duchess, revealed that he was thrilled for the couple and recalled how Meghan had been obsessed with his style way back. Gordon mentioned that she wrote about the brand in her former blog, “The Tig.”

While the duo had partnered on several pieces, especially when the former actress became a royal, he has a particularly deep love for how she represented the brand in her recent pregnancy reveal.

Gordon, who made the dress for Meghan when she was pregnant with Archie, explained that the reality of 2021 has brought about a need for fashion brands to practice sustainability, something the duchess did. In his words:

“I think what Meghan did is such a powerful message. She wore a dress that’s no less beautiful because it’s two years old. It makes her feel no less special.”

The 34-year-old designer elaborated that while Herrera focuses on using sustainable materials, the significant contribution one can make to practicing sustainability is wearing a piece for a longer period.

Fans may recall that the Duchess of Sussex stunned in a floor-length maxi dress custom made by the brand during her announcement. She sweetly cradled her bump as she rested on Prince Harry, who posed barefoot.

The artistic image was taken by another good friend of the couple, Misan Harriman, remotely via an iPad. The royal couple looked lost in each other’s eyes as they posed in an outdoor lawn with trees and shrubs.

Gordon was responsible for many of Meghan’s head-turning looks when she was a senior member of the royal family. He designed the nude shoulder ensemble she wore for her first Trooping the Colour.

He was also the brains behind the stunning blue diaphanous dress the Duchess of Sussex wore during her and Prince Harry’s 2019 tour of Morrocco, where they met with King Mohammed VI.

According to a source close, the royal couple is super elated about the news of their second pregnancy as it came months after Meghan opened up about suffering a miscarriage in July 2020.

The lovebirds were thrilled that the pregnancy happened in quick succession after the loss as they had been hopeful about giving Archie a sibling close in age. They were initially nervous about it but are now wholly enjoying the pregnancy.
