Since they relocated to Los Angeles in 2020, sightings of the Sussexes have been few and far between, but royal watchers were treated to a rare sighting of both Meghan Markle and almost two-year-old son Archie this week.

The pair were seen heading to a school drop-off on Thursday, with the Duchess of Sussex looking cool and casual for the outing — as well as very pregnant.

Dressed in a collection of laid-back styles from some of her go-to brands, Markle was seen wearing Cuyana’s $295 USD/$369 CAD Pleat-Back Anorak, a Rothy’s face mask made from recycled plastic, and a pair of cream Valentino Garavani Roman Rockstud Flat Mules.

The true standout from her look had to be the 39-year-old’s stunning take on maternity fashion. She wore a pair of DL1961 Emma Skinny Maternity Instasculpt jeans, which fans originally thought were Madewell’s Maternity Side-Panel Perfect Vintage Jeans.

Designed with two elastic side panels to fit a growing baby bump, the jeans have a low rise and a skinny silhouette. According to the brand, the Instasculpt jean "smooths, lifts, and conforms to your body through the waist, seat, and thigh without losing shape for the perfect fit, every day."

If you’re in need of a new pair of pregnancy-friendly denim, you’ll want to act quickly because these "perfect" Duchess-approved jeans are, as expected, already selling fast.

The royal sighting comes following Prince Harry's return from the United Kingdom earlier this week, just days after the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip. Due to the late stage of Markle's pregnancy, she was unable to attend the service, and instead opted to send a handwritten card and wreath to mark the occasion. 

This isn't the first time that the Duchess of Sussex has turned to the sustainable brand's denim, having worn a pair of their Instasculpt Emma Ankle Skinny Jeans on a royal tour of South Africa in 2019.
