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."

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, continued her stylish streak of maternity fashion on Monday, when she and Prince Harry visited Canada House in London in honor of Commonwealth Day. The event was aimed at showcasing the diverse community of young Canadians living in London and around the U.K., and involved the Duchess learning how to make maple taffy using syrup cooled on snow. 

The engagement hits close to home for the pregnant powerhouse, who lived in Toronto while starring in "Suits," before moving to London for Prince Harry. So, for the occasion, the Duchess gave a sartorial nod to another Canadian with British ties: designer Erdem Moralioglu

The Duchess wore a custom coat in a rich shade of green over a matching knee-length dress. The coat featured beaded florals embellishments and is very similar to a look in Erdem's Fall 2019 collection. She completed the elegant ensemble with her go-to accessories: black suede pointed-toe bow pumps by Aquazzura and a Givenchy satin clutch with a jewelry clasp.
