It makes a lot of sense.

Meghan Markle loves to choose outfits that have more to them than meets the eye. She'll wear jewels that contain a secret meaning, or opt for clothing that sends important messages. So when the royal toured Africa with her husband, Prince Harry, we began to notice a pattern. The Duchess of Sussex packed a whole lot of wrap and shirt dresses for the trip — and there might be a reason why she did so.

While she hasn't said it point-blank, Meghan has hinted at the fact that she's breastfeeding baby Archie. She admitted to leaving the launch of her Smart Works collection for "feed time," and sources claimed she was late to the Trooping the Colour celebrations for the very same reason. If this is the case, then perhaps Meghan didn't want to wear an outfit she'd have to fuss with, such as a full suit or a shift dress. A wrap is breast-feeding friendly — much easier to unbutton and pull down.

There's also the fact that wrap dresses, in general, are extremely polished while also being comfortable. Even if Meghan isn't breastfeeding, she is a new mom, and something easy and breezy is the ideal option when taking care of a baby.

Take a look at the variety of wrap and shirt dresses Meghan wore on her Africa tour, ahead.

When she likes a brand, she really likes it! Meghan proved to be a big Veronica Beard fan when she rewore this blue number.
