Markle dressed her growing bump in a chic and airy Oscar de la Renta dress, which retails for $3,490. The A-line design is a lightweight and sleeveless, silk frock with a round neck and flounce hem. The light blue, ‘60s-inspired dress is embellished with lemon motifs from top to bottom. The Duchess of Sussex paired the dress with long, beachy waves and a dramatic eye.
While Markle look polished as per usual, Prince Harry took a more relaxed approach for the during the appearance. He wore a white, collared shirt, with two buttons undone and a pair of black pants.
The Sussexes said a few words in order promote their newest venture, Archwell Audio, a production company that will produce a series of podcasts exclusively for Spotify. “We’re using podcasting to drive powerful conversations,” Markle said. “We created Archwell Audio make sure we can elevate voices that maybe aren’t being hear and hear people’s stories.”
Prince Harry adds, “The biggest part of this is to create this community of where you can share and encourage everybody else to then share their own vulnerabilities within that safe space.”
