Although many British royal family fans weren’t quite happy that Meghan didn’t show her son immediately on his birth day, the official appearance wasn’t long in coming. The first photos of little Archie, taken in Buckingham Palace, appeared two days after his birth, on May 8.

For the first time in several weeks, the gorgeous mother was shining in front of camera lenses and looked stunning in a white dress by Grace Wales Bonner, a famous young British designer that is now setting trends in the country. This means the Duchess didn’t cease to follow modern fashion. The dress looked amazing indeed, but there is something more about it. In Meghan’s case, every detail of her image is a kind of a message, but this time it wasn’t just one.

The Duchess fans know how obsessed she is with the Givenchy brand. The fact that she chose a dress from a local designer for such an important event could say that Meghan felt like a part of the royal family. In addition, the designer, Grace Wales Bonner, was born into a multiracial family like Markle.

Although the Duchess has appeared in public in pastel-colored outfits before, she's rarely worn monochrome white: it was for the engagement announcement, the wedding, and just a few official events.

The silhouette of Markle’s dress was very different from those that Kate Middleton preferred at her time. The straight cut that the Duchess of Cambridge wore hid her rounded tummy, although it still could be noticed from a certain angle.

Meghan chose an A-shaped silhouette with an emphasis on her waist. Together with the absence of sleeves, the dress showed what a real woman looks like shortly after labor. The extra weight didn’t spoil Duchess’ appearance, so, many mothers found this outfit completely reasonable.

Finally, white elements were also present in Princess Diana’s outfit when she first appeared in public with newborn Prince William.

By the way, this isn’t the only way the Dukes of Sussex paid tribute to the late Lady Di. In addition to Queen Elizabeth, Princes Philip and Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and the Cambridges, the official message about Archie’s birth also mentioned the siblings of the People’s Princess, Earl Spencer, Lady Jane Fellowes, and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

Markle has planned to spend the first months after the baby’s birth on maternity leave. It would be a little too confident to assume how often she would appear in public during this time, but her first official appearance has turned out to be quite spectacular indeed.
