Forget everything we've ever told you regarding "Meghan Markle wore a thing," because the duchess just blue (heh, get it?) us away with her latest wardrobe choice.

Stepping out for the first state banquet of their royal tour of Oceania, this time in Fiji, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex dressed to the nines for the black-tie dinner at the Grand Pacific Hotel. Markle sported a bright blue Safiyaa cape dress ($1,431) that showed off a growing baby bump with its form-fitting column silhouette.

The floor-length gown paid tribute to the host country of Fiji due to its color, which matches the Fijian national flag.

Markle cradled her baby bump (again!) as the royal couple greeted members of state before the dinner began, and is it just us or is it growing faster than Prince Harry can say "It's a girl!"

The glowing mama-to-be is due in April 2019, according to Kensington Palace. The news that the duke and duchess are expecting their first child was announced on the first day of the royal tour. 

Markle paired the electric blue gown with a set of stunning dangling diamond earrings (possibly borrowed from the Queen, according to The Sun) while her hair was parted down the middle with loose waves and styled by George Northwood, who also styled her wedding-day hair.
