The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently embarking on their royal tour of South Africa, stepping out today on a beach in Cape Town.

As Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry headed out to spend time with children at a surf camp, the 38-year-old mother-of-one appeared relax and dressed down, wearing a laid back combination of black jeans, a white shirt and a casual denim jacket.

With a pair of sunglasses perched on the front of her slouchy shirt and a leather, Madewell tote bag in hand, the stunning royal nailed the practical but stylish ensemble.

Meghan fashion website MadAboutMeghan has claimed that her relaxed white shirt could be this £27 number from J Crew - and even if it isn't an exact match, it does look remarkably similar for a brilliant price!

The Duchess, who regularly recycles her fashion, previously wore the £112 blue denim number, also from Madewell, back in 2017.

Meanwhile, Meghan’s foot wear for the chilled day out are also a re-wear, with Duchess Sussex having sported them during a trip to watch Prince Harry play polo earlier this year.

She was spotted teaming the £156 Brother Vellies woven flats with a long, loose fitting khaki dress as she held 5-month-old son, Archie, close to her chest.

Yesterday, the former Hollywood actress recycled a classic, blue frock, worn once before during her and Prince Harry’s trip to Tonga.

The stunning Veronica Beard Cary dress made its first appearance back in October shortly after the Duchess announced she was pregnant.

Yesterday she looked just as chic as the first time in the bright, tie waist piece, teaming it with a pair of her favourite understated black, closed toe wedges.

This time, the former actress wore her dark, long locks in loose flowing waves, instead of the tight, neat up-do she opted for in Tonga.
