Harry and Meghan started this morning at One Wave, a non-profit surf community tackling mental health issues. The couple then completed a Bondi Beach walkabout where they were met with several very colourful individuals who were very happy to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!
Meghan also took off her espadrilles to walk barefoot in the sand.
What we think we might love most about this look is Meghan’s extremely affordable Castaner espadrilles! They were a great option to add a little height while still allowing Meghan to add a little height to her frame. The maxi dress was a great pick from an Australian designer, but it was a little sad that the bottom of the dress was dirtied in the sand.
Dress: Martin Grant Maxi Dress
Shoes: Castaner Wedges
Necklace 1: Adina Reyter Pave Necklace
Necklace 2: TBC, appears to be a heart
Earrings: Karen Walker ‘Temptation’ Earrings
Ring: Karen Walker ‘Runaway’ Ring
The Stripes Queen has returned. I must say, I’m loving the casual outfits the most on this tour. My only qualm is that the dress is just a tad bit too long even with the wedges.
Great, fun, fits well and the pony tail suits the occasion. I think the shoes may be sinking a bit in the sand making the dress look longer than it should be.
Check the images where she isn’t on sand. As much as I love the dress, it’s sweeping the floor a bit.

Cute but too long! Please summon the royal seamstress! I was surprised that MM is shorter than she appears because she is always wearing 4 inches or higher heels! When she was standing next to Harry and wearing flats you could see her true height. I’m thinking 5′ 4″ or 5’5″?
Yep, that’s about right. I was at Bondi today and got to meet her and Harry. We were both in bare feet. I’m 5’5″, and she was about my height.

Wow, Molly, that’s great! Cool! I’m short (5′ 3 1/2″) and I hate when I wear something that is too long and then I am tripping or stepping on the hem! Majority of skirts she chooses are difficult to hem or alter because of all the pleats! She does love knife pleated skirts.

Molly, How exciting the day must have been for you. Thank you for letting us know you met the Duke and Duchess. I’d read that she was 5’ 6.” Now, we know a little more from one who actually met her. I am very proud of HRH, as I am American and have been a fan of the former Ms. Markle for many years. I am grateful for this website. I check it a few times per week and sometimes daily. I appreciate the community that gathers here.

Loving the Duchess Meghan’s dress today! The stripes, color pattern and length of the dress are casual, yet still very chic (and comfy for the growing Baby Sussex bump!). I agree it’s very long on her, but she is a short woman, about 5ft’5in with no heels, so even with the wedges, this was still made for someone almost 6ft tall.
But the casual, pretty pony tail with my favorite “Meghan wisps” of hair in front is the perfect way to highlight the Bondi Beach dress and her glowing skin! It’s a win for me.

I am in love with this dress!! And so much more beach appropriate than the black dress and flats. I like that she’s not afraid to go barefoot, either.
Don’t forget her gorgeous Karen Walker earrings today at Bondi.
