Meghan Markle gave a subtle nod to the time she spent living in Canada when she stepped out wearing a green coatdress by Canadian designer Erdem on Monday.

The duchess was marking Commonwealth Day with a visit to Canada House with Prince Harry, where the couple spoke to young Canadians living in London about the opportunities for young people working in the Commonwealth.

Her outfit seemed a fitting choice for the former actress, who spent seven years living in Toronto while filming the hit television series “Suits.”

The coat, complete with a high collar and long, loose-fitting sleeves and embroidered with a glitzy black floral design, is from the brand’s Fall 2019 collection.

Markle was all smiles as she met excited fans, who were gathered to greet the couple as they arrived at Canada House in Trafalgar Square.

She clutched her baby bump as she made her way inside the building, where she and Harry were filmed alongside young Canadians who demonstrated their love of traditional maple taffy.

They were also given Canadian-inspired baby gifts by Canadian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Janice Charette.

Markle appeared to be handed some flowers by a young boy as her and Harry left the building.

It seems the mother-to-be may have turned to Kate Middleton for maternity style inspiration, as Erdem was the royal’s go-to brand while she was pregnant. The mum-of-three has been spotted wearing clothing from the brand – in particular, dresses – at least five times in recent years.

Markle completed the look with a pair of towering black heels. The shoes, from Aquazzura, are available to purchase online for £490 ($US638).
