The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on day five of their Australian royal tour - which means Meghan pulled out a series of covetable ensembles while the nation slept.

To open the Anzac memorial in Sydney's Hyde Park this morning, the Duchess dressed diplomatically in a bespoke black buttoned midi dress by Emilia Wickstead.

But it's not the first time the royal has looked to the New Zealand designer for sartorial support, as Meghan graced the headlines during the couple's trip to Ireland back in July courtesy of a black dress.

The choice of designer surprised critics after Wickstead publicly claimed the Duchess of Sussex's now-famous wedding dress by Givenchy's Claire Waight Keller was "identical" to one of her own just months prior to the engagement.

To finish today's all-black ensemble, the mother-to-be chose a co-ordinating Philip Treacy hat, £566 shoes by Tabith Simmons and recycled her go-to Givenchy clutch.

The look was a far cry from yesterday's beach-ready attire so it came as no surprise to see the 37-year-old wear her hair in more polished curls for the commemorative service.

The royal couple later changed into matching Invictus Games t-shirts to attend the annual sporting event's first challenge of 2018.
