The Duchess is wearing a light blue dress that is believed to be by designer Roland Mouret. The rare image was first spotted by HELLO! in May, inside of Buckingham Palace during the Queen’s meeting with George Brandis, the Australian High Commissioner. It’s not clear when the image was taken, however, it is believed to be one of the portraits taken by famed photographer Alexi Lubomirski during their engagement in December.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are expecting their first child in the Spring of 2019, have no problem posing for photos. During the final day of their royal tour, the pair ditched their security and members of the press to sneak away for a private photo session in the Whakarewarewa forest in New Zealand.
The 34-year-old royal released the stunning picture he snapped of his wife standing surrounded by trees and holding her baby bump. Royal reporter Omid Scobie, who was one of the many people on hand during the engagement, shared the secret to Harry and Meghan’s intimate moment.
