On her final day of touring South Africa, Duchess Meghan pulled off another sensational royal re-wear while meeting the late Nelson Mandela’s wife, Graça Machel .

The look consisted of a pink wrap dress by Canadian label House of Nonie, nude heels and her trademark messy bun.

The last time we saw the 38-year-old in the dress was during a visit to London’s Southbank Centre in July 2018. The royal visited the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition at the centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. What a sweet, subtle gesture to bring the dress out again for Graça!

Earlier this year, HELLO! Canada asked House of Nonie founder Nina Kharey what she would love to see Meghan wear from her line. She said she could totally see the Duchess of Sussex in nearly all of the FW19 collection, since it featured clean and classic silhouettes, which was very much Meghan’s style. Nina said Nonie’s wrap skirts in particular would look good on Meghan, as would the wool coats.

“I’ve always found Meghan Markle’s style to be minimal and sophisticated,” Nina told HELLO! Canada. “She always looks effortless, yet polished with a modern touch to her fashion choices. I don’t design with her as my muse, but I believe the style of my line is very much a fit - effortless and minimal. It’s very easy to imagine her in most of my collection and I hope to see her in more pieces in the future.”

Along with shirt dresses, the 38-year-old duchess has made wardrobe repeats a go-to during her time in South Africa.

On Sept. 23, the royal donned a bright sky blue Veronica Beard dress for a tour of the District 6 Museum alongside Harry. Located in the inner-city residential area of Cape Town, the museum highlights the forced relocation of 60,000 residents of various ethnicities during the apartheid era. We initially saw her in the look during a royal engagement in Tonga last year.

The next day, she wore a striped, sleeveless maxi dress designed by Australian Martin Grant to a youth leadership reception. During the event at the British High Commissioner’s residence, Harry and Meghan presented Jade Bothma and Hunter Mitchell with Commonwealth Points of Light prizes. The awards recognize “inspirational volunteers” in the Commonwealth, and recognize those who have given their time to improve society and make the world a better place. Meghan previously wore the ensemble during a visit to Bondi Beach.

Then on Sept. 25, Meghan looked completely stunning in a black Everlane jumpsuit, which she paired with black suede Manolo Blahnik pumps. She accessorized with beautiful gold earrings from GAS Bijoux. It just so happens to be the same Everlane jumpsuit we saw her in when she was pictured in a promo video for the issue of British Vogue she guest-edited earlier this year!

On Sept. 29, the former actress then wore the same green, V-neck linen dress she wore to a charity polo event with Archie Harrison in the summer. This time, she donned the Lisa Marie Fernandez outfit for a Skype chat with Harry and at the Nalikule College of Education in Malawi, where he was attending an event by the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED). The relaxed fit dress retails for US$595, and proved to be the perfect sartorial choice for the occasion.

Meghan, Harry and Archie will wrap up their tour later Oct. 2 and are expected to head back to London that evening.
