For the occasion, Meghan wore a belted trench coat-inspired dress from Banana Republic and a pair of Stuart Weitzman suede heels (shop a similar heel here). The duchess looked radiant as ever as she kept the rest of her look neutral, wearing minimal jewelry and wearing her hair in down in loose waves.

Meghan's Double-Breasted Trench Dress from Banana Republic is the perfect transitional piece and retails for only $139. While the nude hue that she wore is no longer available, a white version of her exact dress is still in stock!

Shop: Banana Republic Double-Breasted Trench Dress, $139

The very wearable look comes just one day after Meghan stepped out in an Aritzia dress and Everlane shoes while visiting Victoria Yards.

The royal tour may be coming to an end on Wednesday, Oct. 2, but we can't wait to see what the mother-of-one wears to cap off her trip.
