Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."

On Tuesday, roughly day 849 of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's (actually two-week) tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited New Zealand's North Shore to dedicate an area of native bush to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy. 

It being, you know, the native bush, the grounds were muddy, conditions the Duchess combatted by employing a pair of waterproof rubber "Reign" boots from the original muck boot company, called The Original Muck Boot Company.

Originally intended for hunting, these $159.99 boots feature a rubber outsole with a gripping tread designed to make the shoe safe for use on all terrains. 

This outfit also included Karen Walker's "Fathom" jacket, a Lavender Hill Clothing Co. black scoop-neck tee and dark skinny jeans, which the eagle-eyed Meghan's Mirror speculates to be J.Crew's "Pull-On Toothpick Jean."
