The new mum stepped out in a perfect purple outfit days after saying she's not ok in the ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

Meghan Markle looked blooming in a vivid purple dress by Babaton for Aritzia, which she already wore during her pregnancy with baby Archie. The 'Maxwell' midi number was styled with a pair of flawless navy suede court heels by Manolo Blahnik and opted to go without any accessories, such as a coat, a handbag, or whatever, for One Young World's summit.

People praised Duchess Meghan on social media

@erikk_the_dane:

Meghan is still the same and would rather get hugs from people than getting a curtsy especially from those she has known before marrying into the royal family.

@meredyth_ferguson:

The video seeing the hug is heart warming, you can’t not feel anything other than happiness and support πŸ’œ

@k_star_studio:

Duchess Meghan is so humble, relatable and full of grace. I love her 😍😍

@aladywithclass:

I have so much more respect for her- always did respect her- but I love that she did that- she has such a big heart and believes in equality

Although it was reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are about to take a much-needed 6-week vacation, Meghan Markle still has some occasions to attend before taking 'space' from social media and 'time for healing' from unfair pressure.
