All six episodes of Netflix’s “Harry & Meghan” docuseries are here, along with never-before-seen images from the high-profile couple’s love story. In the series, Markle shares plenty of snippets from the athleisure side of her wardrobe, with peeks at her denim cutoffs, breezy caftans, lounge pants, slub tees, and sun hats — the latter being a go-to accessory for the duchess.

However, in episode four, we’re graced with fresh angles of her more iconic fashion moments, from her Givenchy and Stella McCartney wedding dresses to the navy blue polka-dot number she chose for her intimate baby shower in Manhattan at The Mark Hotel in February 2019. Markle’s bridal designer and stylist Clare Waight Keller is also interviewed to discuss the hype surrounding the gown that was unveiled to the world.

Another particularly poignant look is the duke and duchess’s outfits for their onesie engagement party. The matching ensembles were packed with meaning. “Meg and Harry were in matching penguin onesies because penguins mate for life, and they were so sweet,” revealed Lucy Fraser, a friend of the couple who is featured in the episodes.

In another scene, we see the 41-year-old mom of two walking barefoot along the shoreline on a private beach in an entirely sheer swimsuit coverup that appears to be part of a two-piece set. The look includes a lightweight printed dress and a matching short-sleeved duster with a tie that Markle fastened above her belly. Her co-ords are accessorized with one of her neutral fedoras, clad with a contrasting ribbon and worn over a low, messy bun and a pair of sunglasses.

Markle’s husband Prince Harry is often in sync with her style, keeping his Ray-Ban wayfarers, pocket tees, and cargo shorts in frequent rotation.

The docuseries is in association with Archewell Productions, which is also behind Markle’s Spotify podcast “Archetypes.”
