How Meghan Paid Tribute To Fiji With Her Blue Gown?
Meghan looked absolutely stunning in a blue Safiyaa dress for her first evening event in Fiji.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first ever royal tour as a couple is going great, as yesterday the couple arrived in Fiji. On the seventh day of their 16-day tour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had to attend a welcome party.
Later in the evening, Meghan joined her husband for the evening’s state banquet, and the Duchess didn’t fail to wow the public with her fashion choice.
She went for a regal blue gown by designer Safiyaa with cap sleeves and cap detail.
The Duchess perfected the look with a pair of diamond earrings as she wore her hair down and her makeup natural.
Her choice of dress color is a tribute to Fiji, as it is the same shade as the dominant color on the country’s flag. On the flag, the blue represents the Pacific Ocean which surrounds the country.
This is done very often by royal women, as it is a great way of showing respect to the place they are visiting.
Tons of fans commented on how stunning the Duchess looked, being pregnant and all. One wrote: “Wow – first evening dress! Absolutely regal!” while another added: “Love the dress so much!”
Even though Meghan looked gorgeous and took our breath away, she was noticeably not wearing a tiara. When the Queen visited Fiji in 1953, she had a beautiful blue and silver lace evening gown, which was teamed with her Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
But, considering that state dinners are slightly less formal than state banquets. So that may have been a reason for her not to wear a tiara.

According to HELLO!, there was no anticipation that Meghan will wear a tiara at the event. Still she was dressed suitably for the occasion.
