She has already wowed fans around the world with two outfit changes on the first official day of the royal tour.
But it’s not just the dresses that will be scrutinised over the coming 16 days, but every piece the
Former royal lady’s maid, Alicia Healey, recently revealed how Meghan Markle’s outfits have been chosen for the Invictus Games tour, and just how much preparation went into planning this event.
The Duchess of Sussex impressed the fashion world on Tuesday, with her first choices for the royal tour (pictured wearing Karen Gee in Sydney)
But it’s not just the dresses that will have been given meticulous thought and attention to detail (Meghan pictured on Wednesday arriving in Dubbo)

Ms Healey explained that there would be ‘at least two, maybe three’ outfit changes per day, meaning that everything would have been prepared well in advance and tailored to each engagement (pictured wearing Brandon Maxwell)
For every outfit Meghan wears (pictured with Prince Harry on Wednesday), there will also be plenty of backup outfits in her wardrobe
Ms Healey explained that there would be ‘at least two, maybe three’ outfit changes per day, meaning that everything would have been prepared well in advance and tailored to each engagement:
‘New outfits will probably have to be tailor-made, so this would require plenty of time,’ the former royal lady’s maid told
‘Back-ups would be a good idea in case of any accidental spillages on clothes, or any freak weather conditions.’
Meghan has worn Australian designers before, including the Camilla and Marc blazer and Oroton cross-body bag worn earlier this year (left) – one of Ms Healey’s favourite outfits of the Duchess’s was the Givenchy outfit worn in London (right)
As well as considering backups, the Duchess of Sussex and her styling team would have also had to take into account the fact that Meghan wearing items by local designers is ‘really important’.
‘It’s a good opportunity to improve relations between countries by paying tribute to the host country through their clothing choices,’ Ms Healey continued.
Meghan is no stranger to Australian brands. In her engagement photoshoot, she wore a custom-made Ralph and Russo gown.
Then, later on in April, the Duchess opted for a Camilla and Marc black blazer with a cross-body bag by Oroton for the Commonwealth Youth Forum reception.
She followed this with an ivory shift dress by Sydney-based designer, Karen Gee, on the first official day of the royal tour, promptly causing the website to crash.
Ms Healey is also a fan of the the Dior outfit that marked the Centenary of the RAF (pictured with Prince Harry)
If Ms Healey could see the 37-year-old royal do one thing across the 76 official engagements over 16 days, she said she would love to see Meghan in less black and more colour.
She said that while she too loves black, royals ‘traditionally’ wear plenty of colour in order to help them to stand out from the public, and wearing colour does this.
Meghan did opt for a pop of colour, by way of her forest green Brandon Maxwell dress at an afternoon reception at Admiralty House on Tuesday.
Finally, the former lady’s maid highlighted her favourite looks worn by the Duchess of Sussex so far, which include the black Givenchy dress worn at the Royal Academy recently and the Dior outfit that marked the Centenary of the RAF.
