We've now begun Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's epic two-week trip to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. The purpose of their first official royal tour as husband and wife is to focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts, and the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through the Invictus Games (held on October 20 in Sydney).

With their jam-packed schedule, we're expecting endless outfit inspiration to come our way, courtesy of the duchess, and if Princess Diana's 1983 Australian tour outfits are anything to go by, Markle's outfits are destined to leave a lasting impression.

It's no secret that Markle has a knack for introducing the world to more under-the-radar brands. Before deleting her Instagram account earlier this year, she often posted her love for then little-known Australian jewelry brand Natalie Marieso we're expecting some more unexpected designers to pop up in her suitcase. 

When royals travel, we often see them adopt the style of the country they're visiting, as a sign of respect and support for the local industry. Scroll down to see the obvious and unexpected designers we hope the Duchess of Sussex will step out in.

CAMILLA AND MARC

Markle has stepped out in Camilla and Marc in the past, which puts it right at the top of our list of likely contenders. Her last Camilla and Marc choice was decidedly safe, so we'd love to see her in something a little more unexpected from the brand.

LEE MATHEWS

For her travels to Dubbo and Fraser Island, we can picture Markle in something a little more relaxed, like Lee Mathews. And beyond the label's use of natural fibers and feminine designs, it focuses on regular support for not-for-profit organizations aiming to improve social welfare.

DION LEE

Dion Lee is one of Australia's most critically acclaimed designers. We'd love to see Markle wear one of his sculptural yet fluid pieces, in a striking color.

ALBUS LUMEN

Albus Lumen, created by fashion stylist Marina Afonina, draws strength from its detailed minimalism. Going by what we've seen Markle step out in in the past, we have a feeling she'd love the subtle details of Albus Lumen—contrast stitching, tortoiseshell buttons, and luxurious fabrics. 

RYLAN

Rylan, created by fashion influencer Brooke Testoni, is built upon the idea of being defined by memories. Rylan recalls beauty from the past to create timeless pieces for the woman today. What better way for Meghan to commemorate her time in Sydney than with a timeless satchel?

KARLA SPETIC

We'll never forget Markle's second wedding dress—created by eco-conscious designer Stella McCartneyKarla Spetic has a strong focus on creating a sustainable future for the fashion industry, which makes it the perfect brand for the duchess to step out in.

dinosaur designs

From its humble beginnings at Sydney's Paddington Markets over 30 years ago, Dinosaur Designs has gone on to be worn by the likes of Elle Macpherson and Chloë Sevigny. Dinosaur Designs is an iconic Australian brand with deep history. We'd love to see Markle wear these earrings with a sleek pony.
