What Meghan Markle Wore for Her Last Week as a Senior Royal
As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marked their last royal engagement at the Commonwealth Day service on March 9, their duties as senior royals have unofficially come to an end.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the last week making joint and independent appearances, with coordinated ensembles and bold fashion statements on Meghan’s part. Here’s what the Duchess wore as she bid royal life farewell:
It was hard to miss Meghan at the Commonwealth Day service, as she opted for a monochromatic outfit in emerald green. The Duchess was all smiles in an Emilia Wickstead cape dress, a custom William Chambers Veil Explosion teardrop hat, and a Gabriela Hearst Demi satin tote, matched with a pair of Aquazzura Purist pumps in nude.
Harry coordinated with his wife in a royal blue suit with green underlining and an aquamarine patterned tie.
Mountbatten Festival of Music
Accompanying Harry to the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall, Meghan matched Harry’s Royal Marine Captain-General dress uniform with a scarlet red Kalika capelet gown by Safiyaa.
The monochromatic outfit was completed with a Capri red satin jewel buckle clutch from Manolo Blahnik, Leigh red suede pumps from Stuart Weitzman, and a pair of crimson crystal beaded drop earrings from Simone Rocha’s autumn/winter 2019 collection.

International Women’s Day
It was business-casual for the Duchess on Friday as she made a surprise individual appearance at Robert Clack School of Science in Dagenham ahead of International Women’s Day.
Opting for an ivory ME+EM belted fringe boucle jacket with a white t-shirt and black straight-leg trousers, Meghan accessorised with a pair of Lorenzo two-tone leather pumps from Jennifer Chamandi, Nane bag from Regina Pyo, Chi Chi rose gold and diamond bracelet from Jessica McCormack and ‘Kismet’ charm pendant from Edge of Ember—female-powered brands that nod towards the special occasion.
Endeavour Fund Awards
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for their first couple appearance in London on March 5, dressed in a coordinated blue palette. While Harry suited up in navy blue with a dusty blue tie, Meghan’s look was much more vibrant in a turquoise Victoria Beckham T-shirt fitted dress.
She completed her outfit with a Stella McCartney Lucia plexi clutch in marbled blue, and a pair of Manolo Blahnik BB Tora pumps in navy suede. She wore them with a Jessica McCormack Chi Chi rose gold and diamond bracelet and Roxanne First earrings.

Immersive Storytelling Studio
A royal patron of the National Theatre, Meghan made a visit to its Immersive Storytelling Studio in London on Thursday, keeping her outfit relatively simple in a white organza-sleeve blouse from Topshop and high-waisted Moka skirt from Roland Mouret’s autumn/winter 2019 collection.
She dressed up the look with a pair of black Aquazzura Mae Pearl slingback pumps and a black Postal bag from Loewe, accessorising with a Sophie Lis Love Pendant necklace, Jessica McCormack Chi Chi rose gold and diamond bracelet, and Edge of Ember Wave earrings.
