Gone are the days when Meghan Markle could wear whatever she wanted! Sure, this all changed when she joined the royal family, but now that little Archie Harrison appeared on the scene, she has to start thinking about her mom wardrobe. Given her royal wardrobe so far, we're going to go ahead a guess that the Duchess of Sussex had absolutely no issue deciding on what her royal motherhood fashion was going to be. Let's not forget ... she had nine months to prepare for little Archie, so that means she also had that same amount of time to build up her mom-duty wardrobe! And like any good royal, she's using some outfits from the past as well.

Now, we wouldn't say the Duchess of Sussex has always dressed practically (remember when she wore that halter dress in the middle of English autumn?), but now that she's a mom, she has toned things down a bit. Notice that we said "a bit." Meghan is still sporting heels on the regular, mainly because she has to as a royal, and also because we think she just enjoys it. However, she is definitely incorporating more ease into her outfits. We are seeing more tied dresses, wraps, and easy and reliable denim. 

Dare we say it? The lovely Meghan Markle is actually starting to dress like a real mom! Now, of course, she's dressing mostly like a royal mom, which basically means she would be the most stylish mom at the park, but still, her looks aren't all that hard to copy. Here are 16 times Meghan absolutely wowed us with her mom fashion.

  • Serving Up a Look

    The duchess sure does know how to serve up a stylish mom look. No mom jeans for this royal lady! Meghan went right back into her skinny jeans after giving birth to little Archie like it wasn't even a little bit difficult.

  • A Royal Rewear

    Now that she's a mom, Meghan probably truly understands the value of a good royal rewear. Kate Middleton does this all the time, so it's only natural that the Duchess of Sussex would follow in the same footsteps as her royal mom counterpart.

  • Mom on the Go

    Now that she has a family to take care of, Meghan's style is undoubtedly going to change a little bit. However, that doesn't mean she's going to get rid of her classic business-y outfits. She's a corporate mom if we've ever seen one!

  • An Outfit for All Times

    OK ... name something more versatile and mom-proof than an outfit including black denim, a crisp white shirt, and a blue jean jacket? There isn't one! Meghan definitely has her mom uniform down, and it looks just like this.

  • Going for Comfort

    The duchess went for nothing but comfort with this adorable green dress. This ensemble has no shape to it whatsoever, and honestly, we have to give Meghan kudos for really just doing her own thing with her post-baby wardrobe.

  • An Errands Outfit

    Sure, Meghan wasn't on official royal duty when she was wearing this ensemble, but we also have to remember that she was on official mom duty. Archie went along with mom and dad during their trip to Africa, so if you ask us, this is what the duchess's errands outfit would look like.

  • White After Labor Day

    Look ... now that Meghan is a mom now, she doesn't really have time to be caring about silly rules like no white after Labor Day, which is an American holiday anyway. If you ask us, this white shirtwaist dress is the perfect easy mom-on-the-go look for her.

  • Making Introductions

    A wrap dress is basically a motherhood staple. They are super versatile, and it looks like Meghan has found a perfect one to incorporate into her mom-duty wardrobe. We have a good feeling we'll be seeing this one again.

    Any new mom knows that the more flowy, the better. Even though she was no longer pregnant, we're sure that Meghan still wanted some serious comfort with her outfits, which is why this pleated skirt was such a great option for her.

    Looks like Meghan did a good job picking out her maternity wardrobe, because she's using a lot of it post-pregnancy! It would make sense that the duchess would have started preparing her mom outfits early in advance.

  • Opting for Flats

    Any mom knows the value of a good pair of flats. Because Meghan is a member of the royal family, she's expected to wear high heels more often than most, but even a royal new mom needs to take a break and wear flats every now and again.

  • Her Favorite Trench

    A trench so nice, Meghan couldn't help but wear it twice! Meghan broke this trench dress out during her early royal days, and now, it seems as though she's making it work for her mom wardrobe. She sure did make investments with her closet!

  • Kid-Proof

    Well, it wasn't Archie testing out this green dress, but any kids will do, we suppose! This outfit certainly passed the kids test, because Meghan didn't have to worry about her ensemble once as her young fans embraced her lovingly.

  • Able To Move With Ease

    A jumpsuit is as easy as fashion can possibly get, and it looks like Meghan might make the style a regular part of her mom-duty closet. When the duchess doesn't want to have to think about what she's going to wear, she can slip on a jumpsuit!

  • All Bundled Up
