Meghan Markle has always been a fashion icon and ever since she shot to royalty status, she has stepped up her game.

On Monday, 11th March, the Duchess of Sussex visited Canada House to mark Commonwealth Day with her husband, Prince Harry, in an event organized for youths.

The heavily pregnant 37-year-old looked elegant in a green coat fresh off the catwalk and obviously inspired by the 1950s.

Designed by Erdem Moralioglu, a Turkish-English designer born in Canada, the eye-catching coat features intricate appliqué detail, which is surprisingly called "Doria rose" beaded embroidery

This seemingly unimportant detail is more interesting than most realize.

The choice of this embroidery is a tribute to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, with whom the Duchess has enjoyed a very rich and close relationship despite the ugly fallout between the royal and other members of the family.

The two women’s intimate relationship was confirmed by a source, who told the Sun:

“Meghan is a mommy’s girl — their special mother-daughter bond hasn’t disappeared just because she’s moved to England.”

Meghan finished off her chic look to the event with black heels, a black clutch, and a low messy bun.

The Sussexes listened to young Canadian professionals talk about their experiences in arts, academia, business and fashion, and of course, life in the UK.

They also got to make maple taffy sweets with children. They were also gifted with handmade moccasin boots for the baby on the way and a handful of other gifts.

It is apparent that Meghan has deep respect for Canada, having spent a number of years living there and filming the famed show Suits in Toronto.

We believe her choice of attire for the event was perfect. Choosing a designer with ties to Canada and a design with a special nod to her mother was an excellent decision. Clothes can really say a lot.
