The Duchess of Sussex has been operating under the radar in Montecito for most of this year, swerving public appearances in favour of quality time with her husband Prince Harry and their young children, Archie and Lilibet.
Championing ultra-wearable neutrals, Meghan kept her colour palette firmly on the more muted end of the spectrum. But the former actress accented her earthy tones with flecks of covetable gold jewellery.
Her post-palace packing list melded preppy separates alongside some long-time wardrobe favourites, resulting in a masterclass in spectator dressing.

The duchess kicked things off on day one with an affordable black shirt dress by Banana Republic. The pleated wide skirt allowed for a retro silhouette, and Meghan further enhanced her shape via a waist-cinching belt.
On day four, Meghan channelled her inner Parisian influencer, opting for two-tone Chanel flats. Airy Staud shorts + monochrome J. Crew cardigan + Givenchy belt = magnifique.
Sucker for skinnies
Gen-Z may have deemed them 'cheugy', but Meghan is still utterly devoted to her skinny jeans. On day four, Meghan turned to denim specialist Frame's 'Le Color Crop' in the shade 'Film Noir' and paired them alongside a cashmere round neck top by J. Crew.
Meghan championed chocolate brown on day five in a lustrous shirt by L'Agence and high-waisted dark beige flares by Gabriela Hearst.
Meghan leaned into the Old Money aesthetic, sporting a white cable knit vest by Polo Ralph Lauren, Frame white jeans and ankle-strap Aquazzura flats.
Cali Girl playsuit
Another win for the high street came in the form of Meghan's day six easy-breezy Zara playsuit, layered under a relaxed-fit cream blazer. The stylish royal accessorised with shiny gold jewellery, her go-to Saint Laurent slides and Krewe's 'Gravier' shades.
On day six, Meghan harnessed the power of blue in a two-tone shirt dress by Carolina Herrera. The duchess kept things super relatable in glossy Dior stilettos (no, but seriously, we need a pair), and a gold medallion-style pendant.
For the closing ceremony, the duchess went for a super clean, form-fitting silhouette via this botanical Cult Gaia dress. She styled the strapless number with her trusty beige Aquazzura heels and a sleek mid-bun.
