Meghan Markle is about to overhaul her entire wardrobe for this intriguing reason

Common sense in its most fashionable form.

By Jess Pullar
Without question, Meghan Markle's choice in outfits never fail to dazzle us.
From her now-iconic wedding dress, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, to her stunning custom Dior gown worn during one of the later stages of her pregnancy in Morocco - we'll never tire from seeing the stylish Duchess wear some of the world's most heavenly designers.
But it looks like change is a-coming for the royal's heavenly wardrobe, and it's for a very interesting reason.
After giving birth to her and husband Prince Harry's baby Archie in May this year, Meghan has been keeping a relatively low profile as she spends her maternity leave settling into life as a new mother.
That being said, we've still been graced with the stunning royal's presence more than we expected - and boy has she provided us with the goods in the wardrobe department.
At her first official photo call after giving birth to baby Archie, Meghan wore a stunning white tuxedo dress designed by emerging British designer Grace Wales Bonner.
Barely a month later, the royal wowed us once again at the annual Trooping the Colour parade in London wearing a navy blue dress designed by the talented brains behind her wedding gown - Clare Waight Keller.
Since then, we've seen Meghan appear three more times - at a baseball match, a tennis match and a polo match!
Each time, we were dazzled by the royal's outfit choice.

While we're well accustomed to seeing Meghan don some seriously chic (albeit expensive!) styles, it looks like we might soon be seeing a change in the royal's go-to attire.
Royal writer Kate Nicholl, who has authored new book Harry and Meghan has said the pair's upcoming visit to Africa could shake things up in Meghan's wardrobe department.
The 37-year-old, who reportedly picks out her own outfits personally, might take a "mindful" approach when it comes to the big trip, choosing outfits based more on the environment she is in as opposed to making a fashion-statement first and foremost.
"I think Meghan will probably be very mindful of where she is visiting," she told Fabulous Digital.
"I think it is safe to say it's going to be a working wardrobe with some designer elements, instead of a designer wardrobe that does all the talking."

Opting for a slightly more low-key style is nothing new to the royal, who has already embraced the basics in the past.
Nicholl referenced her tour in Ireland in 2018, where Meghan wore a slew of chic, yet basic pieces that were suitable for a working wardrobe.
And already, Meghan appears to be embracing the ordinary over the, let's just say, extraordinary.
In July alone the royal has already been spotted in public wearing casual outfits.
While attending the Wimbledon Championships, Meghan opted for a dressed-down look consisting of jeans and a smart blazer.
Later attending the polo where husband Prince Harry was playing with his brother William, Meghan was again spotted wearing a casual (albeit chic!) linen dress by Lisa Marie Fernandez.

Explaining that Meghan has indeed already nailed casual attire, Nicholl said it's likely that her trip to Africa will follow suit.
"I think all the emphasis will be on the work they are doing [in Africa], rather than what she is wearing, or at least that will be the intention and her hope I would have thought."
So with the above in mind, we can safely assume that while we might not get as much high fashion as we love to see on the royal, the upcoming tour in October will still provide plenty of glamour.
And let's be honest, that works quite well for us - we're much more inclined to take inspiration from Meghan's day to day wear in our own not-so-royal lives.
Bring on the royal outfit match-ups! We'll be sure to keep you in the loop on exactly where to buy them all.
