Meghan Markle's 6-Month Baby Bump Is on Full Display in Blush V-Neck Dress by Brandon Maxwell

For the Duchess of Sussex's first of three events in a jam-packed royal outings week, Meghan Markle stepped out in a bump-hugging blush dress and matching blazer.

Markle wore the monochromatic Brandon Maxwell ensemble to visit one of her new royal patronages, the National Theatre.

The duchess, who is about six months pregnant (she reportedly confirmed she was due in late April or early May), paired the dress with her lace-up suede Aquazzura pumps ($695) and Carolina Herrera clutch that she previously toted at last year's Trooping the Colour for the Queen's 92nd birthday.

Eagle-eyed fans will notice that Markle's pumps are the same ones she wore for her and Prince Harry's engagement announcement last November—a sartorial tribute to her husband while they both separately attended their own royal engagements today, we think.

Markle completed the ensemble with a deep-side-part bun worn in the back-middle of her head (a departure from the duchess's signature messy low bun). Her long layers were parted down the side and pinned back behind her ear, and we couldn't help but think of Markle as Rachel Zane on her wedding day in USA's Suits.

Next, Markle will attend an event for the Association of Commonwealth Universities, for which she is also patron, then make a royal visit to Bristol with Prince Harry.

So many royal outfits, so little time.
