12.30am update: Meghan’s outfit is recycled

Meghan not only shares a love of designer labels with her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, but also of recycling outfits as she was spotted re-wearing two eye-catching items of clothing this morning in Sydney.

For their flight this morning, the former Suits actress opted for a beautiful burgundy dress.

She accompanied the gown with a pair of Aquazzurra pumps and a mini chain saddle bag by Cuyana.

It did not take long for Royal fans to realise the two items were recycled, as she wore them last night at the Invictus Games closing ceremony.

The Casablanca £505 peach suede pumps are from the Italian footwear designer Aquazzurra, which seems to be the Duchess’ favourite.
