Hot off the heels of her baby shower in New York, Duchess Meghan has touched down in Morocco with her husband Prince Harry, looking as radiant as ever.
Earlier this month it was announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would visit Morocco at the request of the British Government, and since touching down on Saturday, the royal couple have already made a huge impression.
The couple's first official trip to Morocco, the visit is to highlight the vital roles that girl's education and youth empowerment are playing in shaping modern Morocco.
On Sunday, the parents-to-be travelled to Asni to meet students at an 'Education For All' boarding house in the Atlas Mountains.
The organisation provides weekly accommodation to girls from rural areas, allowing them to remain in education into secondary school and enables the young women to go on to gain qualifications, study at university and pursue careers.
During the visit Duchess Meghan also participated in a henna ceremony to mark and celebrate her pregnancy where she was given a flower design by a local 17-year-old, staying at the boarding house. Talking to People, a housekeeper at the boarding house Khadeja Oukattou says, "It's for when we have a big party.
"Now she is pregnant we do the henna to keep her happy with the baby.
"For good luck."
The Duchess looked happy and at ease, sporting a navy blazer worn over a black top which she paired with black trousers and chic black flats.
Later in the evening Meghan and Harry attended a reception hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco, Thomas Reilly.
Wearing a glamorous bespoke gown by Dior, Meghan looked absolutely stunning and Harry looked dapper in a classic black suit.
The Duchess accessorised with Birks Snowflake Sandstorm diamond earrings, which she's worn on several times before, a clutch to match her gown and metallic gold heels for a shimmery finishing touch.
The pair was welcomed by the ambassador's two daughters and took part in a traditional rose water greeting before meeting guests.
As revealed on a post on the Kensington Palace official Instagram, the reception bought together people from various sectors of Moroccan society.
The royal couple met with disabled athletes, military representatives, influential Moroccan women and social entrepreneurs.
On Saturday the Sussexes touched down on Moroccan soil and were welcomed by a Guard of Honour to meet Crown Prince Moulay Hassan at a Royal Residence in Rabat.
The pregnant Duchess wowed in a breathtaking red Valentino dress which featured a beautiful embroidered cape.
It is reported that the couple have decided to stay on an extra night, returning on Tuesday rather than flying back to the UK on Monday.
