OK -- so we're all familiar with the ever-chic and elegant duchess Meghan Markle, right? And for those who can't seem to get enough of her and Prince Harry's love, her enviable fashion sense, and desire to do good in the world definitely know that her radiant skin just won't quit. Just by looking at the duchess, it's easy to tell that she has some serious glow going on -- and trust us, it's all natural. Before she became pregnant with her and Harry's first royal baby, Meghan's glowing skin was already on another level, but now that she has those extra hormones working through her body, there's just no competing.

Seriously, it's like she just flips a switch somewhere, and her skin automatically starts glowing like nothing we've ever seen before. We don't know if it's her pregnancy or a rock star skin care routine, but we're thinking it's probably along the lines of both. Before she was hanging with the royals, Meghan was pretty open about her beauty routines, thanks to her old blog called The Tig, but cleansers and toners don't have anything on the effect that pregnancy has on the skin. Over the last couple of months, Meghan's usual radiant face has been off the charts glowing. And we're sure she has Sussex baby #1 to thank for that.

Unfortunately, we can't all achieve the level of glimmer that Meghan does on a daily basis, but that doesn't mean we can't admire what the duchess achieves. Here are 20 times Meghan's skin was quite literally glowing. Enjoy!

    Even when Meghan's glow isn't off the charts, she still has a subtle and lovely glimmer about her. It must be that love glow!

    Seriously: Is this the pregnancy, her skin care routine, or her makeup causing this unbelievable dewiness? Knowing Meghan, it's all three.

    Not even makeup can achieve a glow this defined. Highlighter can only do so much, folks.

    The outfit may have had some naysayers doing what they do best, but no one (and we can't stress this enough), no one can argue with that amazing radiance.

    The stress of travel affects just about everyone's skin and complexion, buuuut it looks like Meghan Markle is excluded from this. 

    Not. Fair.

    No -- that glow of hers isn't just an optical illusion. She actually looks that way, even when the camera gets a close-up.

    A little pup has the power to make just about anyone shine like that, but if we know Meghan, we know the duchess was glowing well before she scooped up the dog.
