Meghan Markle has dressed diplomatically for her first evening engagement in Fiji.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were hosted by the President of Fiji, H.E Jioji K Konrote, and First Lady Sarote Knorote at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.

The engagement is part of the couple’s 16 day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

Dressed in a floor length, caped gown by London-based label SAFiyAA, the Duchess – who is currently pregnant with her first child – showed off her sartorial know-how by wearing the exact colour of the Fijian flag.

The gown, known as the Ginkgo cape dress, retails at £1,095 on the designer’s website.

In a rare hair move for the Duchess – who is famous for her love of messy buns – she wore her long brunette locks down and centre parted.

As for the dazzling chandelier earrings, Kensington Palace confirmed to The Sun’s royal correspondent Emily Andrews these are ‘borrowed’ – but it remains unknown whether or not they are from a royal collection.
