Meghan Markle's Gorgeous $3,490 Lemon-Print Oscar de la Renta Dress Has Ties to Her Home State

Meghan Markle's stunning $3490 lemon-print dress has a sweet tie to her home state of California. 

Meghan Markle wore a gorgeous lemon-print Oscar de la Renta dress during her and Prince Harry's first public engagement since announcing they are expecting a second child. 

Although maybe not on purpose, the dress has two connections to the "Suits" alum's life, including a nod to her wedding and her home state.

The lemon theme was carried out in their wedding through their cake. The couple opted to go an untraditional route with the flavor as it was a lemon sponge cake with an elderflower syrup drizzle. 

 The connection to her home state is that California is one of the largest growers of the yellow citrus fruit in the United States. The couple spoke about their project, Archewell Audio, during the Spotify event and Markle said:

"We created Archewell Audio to make sure that we can elevate voices that maybe aren't being heard and hear people's stories."

The couple is now based in California, particularly in Montecito. This is where they relocated after stepping down from their roles as senior members of the royal family.

The couple is scheduled to make another public appearance on March 7, 2021. They will be sitting down with Oprah Winfrey to talk about different topics.

Markle and Harry announced that they were expecting their 2nd child on Valentine's Day.

The couple will discuss marriage, life as royals, parenthood, their philanthropic work, and how Markle handles the pressures of being in the public eye. 

The Queen is also set to make a public appearance as she will make her annual Commonwealth address on March 7, a few hours before the Sussex's interview. A rep shared why this is a good time for the Sussex interview:

"Now that Archewell is in full swing, Meghan and Harry are ready to talk about it. That’s why the time is finally right for this big sit down."

Buckingham Palace recently, on February 19, confirmed that the Duke and Duchess would not be returning to their royal duties and responsibilities. 

The couple responded to the confirmation and shared that they are still servicing the U.K., and the U.S. Part of their message read that everyone can live a life of service. 

The couple seems very happy and content with their new lives in California, where they are raising Archie and expecting their second child soon. 

Markle and Harry announced that they were expecting their 2nd child on Valentine's Day. They kept their first child, Archie, front and center of the announcement, as it read that he would be a big brother.
