Duchess Meghan appeared via video for the special broadcast of Global Citizen VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World on May 8. The pregnant duchess wowed in a gorgeous colourful dress and bold accessories.

The Duchess of Sussex was clad in a red floral print frock, which appears to be the Poppy Print Shirt Dress by Carolina Herrera.

She paired it with statement gold earrings with a rounded stone and gold drop as well as a delicate Woman Power pendant necklace from Awe. The duchess's playful look was rounded out with her go-to Cartier Love bracelet and watch.

Meghan's long dark hair was parted on the side and styled in a straight finish over one shoulder with soft waves that enhanced her facial features. A smokey eye and pink lip colour were the finishing touches on the pregnant royal's look.

Carolina Herrera is a meaningful choice for her latest appearance because the 39-year-old selected a silky gown from the classic brand when she revealed she was expecting her second child.

The black-and-white photo showed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex looking so in love. It was taken remotely by Misan Harriman, one of the Sussexes' longtime friends.
