This Navy Dress Is Nearly Identical to Meghan’s Final Engagement Dress — and It’s Only $40!

My queens!

In these Corona times, I think it’s safe to say we could all use a little happy distraction.

And what could be a happier distraction than the discovery that Meghan Markle’s stunner of a final engagement dress — that elegant, navy-blue, body-conscious beauty by Scanlan Theodore…

…has what I would call a nearly identical dupe out in the world. This bad boy:

RIGHT?! Twinning doesn’t even cover it! 

This timeless piece — Maggy London’s Margo Midi in Navy — normally rings in at $128. (Already $522 less than the Scanlan.) 

BUT! Today, the universe is doing us one better, because in a hunt for a high-res pic, I found out that this dress is also currently available at Nordstrom Rack — and for $39.97.

Y’ALL. If you’re a lover of Meghan’s style, you truly could not do better! 

As for the event itself — again, her last as a senior royal 😩 — it was in her role as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, a position she took over from HM last year. (She will hold onto this role, even after her and Harry’s transition at the end of the month.) 

Meghan, who graduated from Northwestern University, spoke with Scholars from 11 Commonwealth countries — Malawi, India, Cameroon, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka — whose studies focus on one of four areas: cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving health outcomes for citizens, and supporting decent work and economic growth.

Quite inspirational! You can read more about it in Sussex Royal’s post about it:

Earlier this week The Duchess of Sussex, in her role as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), met with the bright minds from across the Commonwealth to hear about their commitment to tackling the global challenges we all face. The Duchess spoke with Scholars studying and researching important areas surrounding; cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving health outcomes for citizens, and supporting decent work and economic growth. Paving the way as the next generation of leaders, these inspirational scholars, are spread far across the Commonwealth from Malawi to Malaysia, Ghana to Sri Lanka – all of whom will use the skills and knowledge they gain while studying in the UK to make a difference when they return to their home countries. The Duchess, who also attended university with support of a scholarship, is a strong advocate of accessible education for all. As the Royal Patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official) since January 2019, The Duchess has met and engaged with students, academics, and staff from ACU member universities across the Commonwealth to learn more about the vital work they do to address global challenges. As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.

And that, my queens, I hope, is your teeny, tiny Corona anxiety queller for the day. ❤️
