And…they’re done. Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry have completed their final official royal engagement before stepping back as senior royals with an event celebrating the U.K.’s Commonwealth Day in London’s Westminster Abbey. And to mark their farewell, Markle has served up another incredible, colour-charged look, this time via Kate Middleton fashion favourite, Emilia Wickstead.
For her final appearance as a senior royal, Markle wore a spectacular emerald green midi dress from the London-based, Auckland-born designer, which featured a majestic cape which wrapped around her neck dramatically (and took flight in that chilly London breeze). A William Chambers pillbox-style hat with sculptural netting in the near-identical shade accompanied the dress, while a green Gabriela Hearst bag and nude Aquazzura pumps completed the look.
Breathtaking, by all accounts, it was just one of three glorious outfits paraded by the Duchess in what has been dubbed the couple’s “farewell tour”.
First, the brightly blue-hued Victoria Beckham pencil dress she wore at The Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House alongside an equally blue Prince Harry; the moment – underneath an umbrella and falling raindrops – immortalised in one of the most enduring images in royal history.
Then of course the fire engine red Saifyaa gown at the Mountbatten Festival of Music, which featured another dramatic cape, and other matching moment with her husband (who also wore red).
An exuberant, unforgettable, colourful but most importantly stylish exit for Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, this is what it truly means to go out in style.
