Meghan Markle has made a rare post-baby outing, and her black dress and her incredible physique stole the show during the first-ever Major League Baseball game in Europe.
Meghan and Prince Harry made an appearance at the Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees baseball game held at London Stadium on Saturday, and Meghan’s black belted dress got almost as much attention as the high-scoring game. It garnered coverage from a number of celebrity news outlets, which noted that Meghan’s figure looked amazing just a few weeks after giving birth to her first baby.
“Meghan, who has quietly been enjoying her maternity leave with her baby boy Archie, looked gorgeous in a Stella McCartney black dress and Aquazzura Deneuve ballet flats in black suede,” a report from Hello! magazine noted. “Harry, meanwhile, proudly wore his Invictus Games polo.”
The royal family shared some video of their appearance in the Sussex Royal’s Instagram Stories, showing Meghan and Harry walking hand-in-hand around the field before the game and meeting with players in the clubhouses before the game. Harry was there to represent the Invictus Games, with some of the competitors throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the game.
Meghan had just given birth to her first child, a boy named Archie, on May 6. She and Prince Harry have mostly avoided the spotlight since then, though Meghan has given fans a few glimpses of her amazing post-baby body.
As royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight, Meghan is not in a rush to get back to the gym after giving birth and is instead focusing on Archie. She hasn’t given up on it entirely, but is opting for more low-impact exercises to ease herself back into shape, Nicholl said.
“She has been taking it easy,” Nicholl said “‘And I hear that yoga is very much on her post-birth fitness regime, nothing too strenuous.”
Meghan’s family is also pitching in. Nicholl noted that her mom, Doria, is a yoga instructor and decided to learn some postpartum and baby yoga so that she could teach Meghan. That has made up the majority of Duchess Meghan’s post-baby fitness routine since Archie was born, the report noted. It was not clear when Meghan would be getting back into her more strenuous routine.

Meghan Markle’s post-baby body was eventually overshadowed by the game itself, which ended up being one the longest nine-inning games in Major League history. The Yankees prevailed 17-13 over the Red Sox before close to 60,000 fans
