Meghan and Harry Stepped Out in London Looking Cali-Casual, but the Duchess Left Her Engagement Ring at Home

Finally! After eight months of seeing Meghan Markle dress her bump with designer gowns and six-inch stilettos, the royal mama-to-be returned to her laid-back California roots with a casual graphic tee and jeans.

Markle and Prince Harry stepped out last night to Ilapothecary, in Kensington, London, steps from the Kensington Palace walls. The duchess wore a white T-shirt, dark denim skinny jeans and a military green jacket with white sneakers, while Harry looked like he was practicing his dad outfits in a dark gray polo, baseball cap, black jeans and sneakers.

Noticeably absent from her look, though? Markle left off her engagement ring for the third time in one month, and we’re betting it’s due to a bit of swelling from being eight months pregnant (NBD). 

The apothecary store, which boasts vegan, all-natural, organic skin care for men and women, sells their own line of cleansers, fragrances, toners, serums and mists. 

The Sussexes, who just unveiled their new official Instagram account on Tuesday, were last seen two weeks ago when they paid tribute to the victims of the Christchurch terror attack by adding a bouquet of flowers to the memorial at the New Zealand House in London.

The visit to the apothecary store comes just a few weeks before Markle is expected to give birth (some time in “late April or early May” is what the duchess previously revealed to members of the public). The store’s wholesome approach to wellness and skin care seems to fall in line with the yogalovers overall attitude toward sustainability and all-natural products. According to The SunMarkle and Prince Harry painted their babys nursery in vegan paint.

Some au naturel self-care before Baby Sussex gets here? These (almost) parents are doing it right.
