The royal tour continues, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle returning to Sydney, Australia, following successful visits to both Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga.
After a dramatic flight back to Australia, which included Harry and Meghan’s pilot having to make an emergency landing, the Duke and Duchess stepped out for the Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards at the Shangri-La Hotelin Sydney. Changing into the most gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, Meghan completely stunned the fellow attendees, with her tulle dress being reminiscent of the fairytale outfit a Disney princess might wear.
The decadent Oscar de la Renta design features some seriously gorgeous embellishments which were made by Sarah Esmoingt, per @HeavenQRF on Twitter. Esmoingt is an embellishment designer who also happens to have worked with Zac Posen. Clearly, Meghan is a big fan of the intricate embellishment work, which literally turned her into a fairytale princess:
Meghan’s gown is from Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection, and is described as a “white tulle gown with black bonded looped ribbon tweed laser cut birds.”
Kensington Palace tweeted about Meghan’s appearance at the ceremony, at which she presented the Young Conservationist of the Year Award to Sophia Skarparis, for her campaign to ban all plastic bags in New South Wales, Australia:
