In case you haven’t heard yet, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in Australia right now and they have also just announced their first pregnancy. So the press has understandably been having a field day, but what we’ve been watching most closely is the impressive state of Meghan’s wardrobe. A wardrobe that’s been filled with local and responsible design right throughout the couple’s stay – including our fave sustainable sneakers by Veja.

On Day 2 of her Australian tour, for instance, the Duchess wore a pair of ethical jeans by Australian brand Outland Denim – which offers opportunities to vulnerable young women in Cambodia, where it employs 45 local seamstresses. “Given [Meghan’s] work in the area of women’s justice and empowerment, the alignment with her on that ethical level is just perfect,” said the brand’s communications director Erica Bartle.

But this wasn’t the only Antipodean designer that Meghan was spotted wearing during her Australian tour. The Duchess also chose delicate gold jewellery by Australian designer Natalie Marie (who uses recycled gold) and New Zealand designer Karen Walker; a dress by Dion Lee and a trench coat by Australian designer Martin Grant.

That trench coat was one of the items that she wore more than once too, while the other was a gorgeous Stella McCartney dress that she has been spotted in before. Not only is Meghan proving that outfit repeating is cool enough for the Royal Family, then, but she has also made a point of wearing her values on her sleeve. To watch the sailing event of the Invictus Games, Meghan wore a pair of Veja’s sustainable sneakers with her casual windbreaker and jeans. So basically, we have the same favourite pair of sneakers as the Duchess of Sussex.
