The Duchess of Sussex showed motherhood is far from frumpy as she was seen for the first time since the arrival of her son.
Radiant Meghan, 37, donned a crisp white belted blazer dress as she joined proud husband Harry, 34, for a photo call in St George’s Hall in Windsor, which is where state banquets are held when at Windsor.
The new mother, who has won praise for her stylish maternity wardrobe, was praised by royal fans who called her ‘brave’ for wearing white so soon after the birth of the baby.
Speaking to Femail, celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage noted the tie at the waist accentuating Meghan’s post-natal bump, and said the new mother was proudly showing off her post-birth figure.

The piece was tuxedo in style, with tortoiseshell buttons down the front of the outfit and a tie waist, which Lucas said accentuated Meghan’s post baby bump.

Meghan chose a similar look, a crisp white coat with a tie at the waist, for the moment she and Harry announced their engagement.
Unlike the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Harry and Meghan decided to eschew the royal tradition of posing for photos with the baby in the hours after the birth in favour of keeping the moment private for family.
However the couple did make plans to introduce their son today and appeared in front of a handful of members of the press.

Harry and Meghan have been enjoying the experience of being new parents at their Frogmore Cottage home near the Queen’s Windsor Castle residence.
Family members spoke about the joy of the new arrival with the Duke of Cambridge saying on Tuesday he was ‘obviously thrilled, absolutely thrilled, and obviously looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down’.
He added: ‘I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.’
Harry was at his wife’s side during the birth on Monday and he later confessed he had only had a few hours’ sleep, suggesting Meghan had spent much of the night in labour.
