The duchess first wore the printed frock during her 2018 tour of the Pacific while she and Prince Harry visited Bondi Beach. But, today, she proved that the summery outfit was just as appropriate for the British High Commission garden reception.

Just yesterday, she recycled the blue Veronica Beard shirt dress that she previously sported in Tonga last year. 

At tonight’s reception, which honors youth leadership and activism, Harry and Meghan mingled with approximately 200 guests, a group which includes female township leaders, local entrepreneurs, representatives of the fashion industry, and those working on conservation efforts in the region, among others.

The royal couple were also pictured laughing and joking with prominent South African disability and women’s rights activist Marlene le Roux.

The reception marks Harry and Meghan’s third engagement of the day. They kicked it off at Monwabisi beach, where they learned about Waves for Change, a charity which helps vulnerable young people living in challenging communities through surfing.

Then, to mark Heritage Day, a public holiday in South Africa when the nation celebrates its culture, diversity and traditions, the Sussexes paid a visit to the historic Auwal Mosque in Bo-Kaap, Cape Town. 

As a sign of respect, the Duchess wore a cream headscarf which perfectly matched her olive, floor-length dress.
