Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry, 33, stepped onto Bondi Beach today.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met Grant Trebilco and Sam Schumacher, founder and co-founder of OneWave, a local surfing community group raising awareness for mental health and wellbeing.

Meghan took her wedge heels off to walk on the sand.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their official 16-day Autumn tour visiting cities in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

The dress has wide spaghetti straps and mustard, green, white and black stripes.

Martin Grant is a fashion designer originally from Melbourne, Australia.

However, he now lives and designs in Paris, France.

Meghan added some delicate jewellery to her look.

The gold multi strand bracelet complemented the actress’s dress.

She also added some dainty earrings, visible as her dark hair was pulled back in a ponytail.

The couple are on day four of their royal tour and appear to be enjoying themselves.

Yesterday Meghan Markle wore an outfit worth over £8,000 in Melbourne. 

She wore a blue dress, the Folded Sail dress by Dion Lee, £762.

In typical Meghan fashion she wore some very pricey jewellery, the Signature Bangle from Shaun Lane, which costs £4,900.

On her feet she wore navy suede BB pumps from Manolo Blahnik, £535.

She also sweetly wore a ribbon and beaded necklace which was given to her by a child while on a walkabout.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.

Actress

Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.

Relationships

In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
