It's that time again … We check in with our favorite British bride (and now the expectant mother) to see how things are going – stylistically.

She barely shows it, but Meghan Markle proves a lengthy theory about expectant mothers, as she seems … to bloom. Granted, her recent takeover of some livelier colors and prints is probably due to her and Prince Harry on a 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, where Spring is currently. But there is also an undeniable liveliness and optimism that conveys its lighter palette.

Perhaps it is our own desire to escape the increasingly gray autumn days, but by permeating her ladylike style and tempting the palate of nudes, neutrals and fleets with sweeping silhouettes, crisp whites and a range of jewels and garden-fresh colors. Meghan has brightened our moods by just looking at her – and lets us predict how her style could develop in the months to come with her pregnancy.

The royal couple had just completed their travels, including more than 70 engagements with Meghan, who wore at least 30 different outfits. So, without further ado, here are a few highlights from the last few weeks:

Meghan's sleek, sleeveless scabbard may not be a departure from her signature royal wardrobe, but the bright white of her "blessed" dress by Australian designer Karen Gee was a fresh take – just as her turtleneck trench coat by Martin Grant relaxed mood to her regal appearance , On a sweet note she has decorated with diamond-studded butterfly earrings, which used to belong to Princess Diana, and beige suede pumps by Stuart Weitzman "Legend".

If there's a look we long for, as temperatures rise again, then the airy, striped summer dresses that Meghan wore in Australia are what we're looking for. Meghan got some warmth for the royal protocol, which came out from Reformation (lower right) despite its high side slit, but we especially love the boldly striped maxi with full skirt at lower left, also by Martin Grant.

Women in color know that white and ivory beautifully balance our skin tones, and Meghan is no different. The custom ivory carpenter's dress and matching Stephen Jones hat she wore to meet the Fijian president made the most of her appearance.

But it was the eye-catching capped sleeves and a blue robe the duchess wore for a dinner in Fiji, which was one of the few outfits that flaunted her growing baby bump during the tour. It was also selected to achieve the Cerulean Blue in the flag of the country. Founded by the British brand Safiyaa, it's known online as the brand's Ginkgo Cape dress and can still be pre-ordered – if you have $ 1,405.

But a true clue to how Meghan's maternity style might blossom was Figue's already sold-out red floral silk flower dress, which she wore on a market in Fiji, which she paired with ankle-length black espadrille wedges

And for her last appearance in Fiji, the Duchess wore a Jewel tone and looked absolutely fancy in a peacock-colored shift dress by Jason Wu with exposed seams and raw edges.

For her arrival in Tonga Meghan shined in a bright red dress with jewels and applications of Self Portrait, which can be pre-ordered for $ 493.

It shows again how great she looks in white – and reminds us a little of her minimalist wedding dress, Meghan's sleeveless white robe with ornate shoulders of Theia. Through the bridal effect, the Duchess once again wore the aquamarine ring of Princess Diana, as she did at her wedding celebration in May.

And then there were the shirt dresses – a standard for the Duchess, who wore both a striped version of Martin Grant and a bright blue color by Veronica Beard, which she paired with powder blue Mary Jane pumps by Banana Republic in farewell to Tonga.

Meghan doubled to Sydney for an event in Sydney and wore perhaps the most magical of her many dresses on the tour. She was wearing an aviary-embroidered, black and white tulle tea dress by Oscar de la Renta that perfectly matches her fairytale princess image.

For the Invictus Games, Meghan was cheerful and casual in a purple wrap jacket by Scanlan Theodore, a black pair of Australian brand Outland Jeans – a sustainable brand that helped trafficking through training and employment of women rescued from exploitation and heels by Sarah Flint fights.

For the evening, she opted for an olive-colored, double-breasted tuxedo dress by Antonio Berardi and laced, beige pumps with ankle straps by Aquazzura.

When the royal couple arrived in New Zealand, Meghan did it in a checkered ditch of New Zealand designer Karen Walker, wearing a surprisingly affordable maternity dress by fast fashion retailer ASOS.

Glamor Elegance, however, was fine for the evening when Meghan wore a black cocktail dress with cap sleeves from Gabriela Hearst to deliver a well-received speech on voting and feminism, which, according to the Duchess, was simply a matter of "fairness."

For a day's outing, the Duchess was casual yet chic in a Club Monaco coat she wore with a Jac + Jack turtleneck sweater and jeans, both in black, and suede lace-up boots by Stuart Weitzman that gave the look a look slight edge.

For an art show in the evening, Meghan turned to another New Zealand designer, Maggie Marilyn, for her white, two-row tuxedo mini dress that featured one of our favorite features: bags.

A preference for sleeveless double-breasted silhouettes
(Is this the new submarine neckline?), The Duchess put on another for a reception on Wednesday; In fact, in 2017, she also wore the navy Antonio Berardi dress during her performance with her husband

And back in the Navy, Meghan said goodbye, first in a Stella McCartney dress and then in Givenchy's sweater and skirt, which was adorned with royal blue pleats – especially the two same designers she wore on her wedding day.

Considering that the Duchess is already in the second trimester of pregnancy, we might not see her in maternity wear for a while – though we can not wait to see what her tailored pregnancy clothes will look like.
