In a rare public outing, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and baby Archie made an appearance at the King Power Charity Polo match to cheer on Princes William and Harry as they faced-off against one another.

Meghan was also accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and one-year-old Prince Louis to make the outing a family affair.

The sisters-in-law watched on as their husbands faced off for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy, at the Billingbear Polo Club in Wokingham, Berkshire.

Both Kate and Meghan showed off their respective warm weather style, appearing in two very different takes on the summer dress.

Kate looked radiant in a feminine LK Bennett Madison dress, while Meghan opted for a more laid-back V-neck linen midi dress by Lisa Marie Fernandez.

Meghan’s army green dress is sold with a matching sash, but the 37-year-old royal went for a looser fit and instead wore hers as a flowing tent style that’s perfect for beating the summer heat.

Despite its simple silhouette, Meghan’s oversized dress rings in at a pricey $975 for the designer piece. If you’re a fan of her look but not the price tag, we put together a list of similar styles to shop at a fraction of the price.

Take a look at Meghan’s original dress below, as well as our favourite picks to snag her relaxed summer style for less.
