Meghan Markle pulled an old standby out of her closet for her visit to Morocco!

The royal mom-to-be and Prince Harry continued their royal tour on Monday with a stop at the Moroccan Royal Federation of Equestrian Sports, where they learned about the country’s developing program of supporting children with special needs through animal therapy.

They dressed casually for the outing, with Meghan sporting a green jacket by J.Crew over a striped top along with black pants and Stuart Weitzman booties.

The coat may look familiar — and that’s because it has been in Meghan’s wardrobe since her pre-royalty days!

After news broke of her royal romance, the former actress was spotted out and about in Toronto, where she filmed Suits, wearing the olive coat as she carried a yoga mat in Dec. 2016. Later that month, Meghan wore the piece again while heading to a yoga session with her mom, Doria Ragland.

The royal parents-to-be attended a horse grooming session with some of the children before watching a riding demonstration and meeting trainers.

Meghan wore her hair tied back into a chic ponytail, freeing up her hands to pet some of the horses.

While sister-in-law Kate Middleton is the master of the royal rewear – wearing outfits on multiple occasions, sometimes years apart! – Meghan has been known to recycle favorite pieces as well. Just last month, the Duchess of Sussex sported her Aquazzura Matilde crisscross pumps, which she’s worn on several special occasions – including on the day she publicly announced her royal engagement to Prince Harry in the Sunken Gardens of Kensington Palace back in Nov. 2017.

Later on Monday, Meghan and Harry pulled an outfit change, switching into dressier clothes to visit a market at the Andalusian Gardens. Meghan chose a pleated black dress topped by a white blazer, and completed the look with black heels and statement earrings. Harry opted for khaki pants, a suit jacket and a white button-up shirt without tie.
