There’s just one problem with the black-and-white tropical print sundress Meghan Markle wore on her second day in Nigeria. It’s that she makes being this chic look too easy.

On May 11, Markle and Prince Harry attended a volleyball match at a local charity. Harry wore an Invictus Games–branded polo. Meghan, on the other hand, opted for a breezy Johanna Ortiz sundress with an abstract leaf-pattern print, a decorative cutout at the bust, and a center slit. The dress’s finishing touches are the woven spaghetti straps adorned with tassel details at the back.

The duchess has been wearing a lot of gold statement jewelry on this trip, and this ensemble is no exception. She accessorized the tropical dress with a few gold bangles and oversized medallion earrings. Instead of heels, she wore practical, strappy black sandals, and pulled her hair into a low ponytail.

On the previous day Markle wore a Heidi Merrick maxidress called the Windsor, which might be interpreted as a subtle message to her royal in-laws back in the UK. Especially when you factor in the gold choker necklace she wore, which was reminiscent of Princess Diana’s jewelry. But if Meghan Markle’s sundress also included a coded message for the royal family, it must have gone over my head.

As part of her Nigerian visit, Meghan took part in a panel discussion for women in leadership, per People, telling the crowd, “It has been a whirlwind 24 hours since we arrived, and I very quickly got the memo that I need to wear more color, so I can fit in with all of you and your incredible fashion!” She continued, “I am very overwhelmed. So I want to start by saying thank you very much for just how gracious you’ve all been in welcoming my husband and I to this country…my country.”
