Amid reports that Meghan Markle would be cutting back on appearances during her and Prince Harry’s royal tour of Australia, the pregnant Duchess of Sussex joined her husband at Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island.

Fresh off a day of solo engagements, Harry wore a dark gray shirt and khaki trousers to greet fans alongside his wife. Meghan opted for her new trend of choice: a striped maxidress — but unlike the black version she wore to Bondi Beach on Thursday, the white and gray Reformation style ($218; thereformation.com) bore a daring slit up its left seam. (We’re talking thigh-high!) The 37-year-old duchess paired the boho gown with brown leather gladiator Sarah Flint sandals ($245; sarahflint.com), delicate necklaces, black Karen Walker sunglasses ($250; shopbop.com), and her signature low bun.
