Meghan Markle has pulled off a fashionable hat trick over the past week with three show-stopping ensembles as she and Prince Harry return to royal duties following a relaxing August. The couple proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to connecting with the public and making philanthropy their top priority. But when it comes to fashion savvy, the Duchess of Sussex rules, and Thursday's (Sept. 6) 100 Days To Peace gala at Central Hall Westminster in support of soldiers with PTSD was no exception.
The duchess stepped out in a blue Jason Wu dress with figure-flattering ruffles at the front, trading her recent black ensembles for a pop of colour. She paired the dress with a navy Dior clutch that features a little bee on the clasp and new Aquazzura sling-back pumps with rhinestones on the strap.
Meghan styled her hair in soft Old Hollywood waves, which showed off her Birks Snowflake earrings on one side, and wore a light smokey eye, pink lips and a flush of rosy blush on her cheeks. Prince Harry wore a dapper navy suit and olive-green tie.
Since returning from summer vacation, Meghan has taken treated fans to a stylish parade of winning looks. This past Tuesday (Sept. 4) saw the duchess slip into an ultra-chic Altuzarra pantsuit at the inspiring WellChild Awards, where she wore a WellChild pin on her lapel and her heart on her sleeve as she chatted with severely ill children. She paired the suit with a silky black camisole by Czech label Deitas, a pair of suede pumps and a Stella McCartney clutch – accented with the sentimental diamond-and-pearl earrings gifted to her by the Queen ahead of their first outing together in Cheshire last June.
Last week's gala presentation of Hamilton, benefitting Sentebale, saw the 37-year-old royal supporting Canada once again in a tuxedo mini dress by homegrown brand Judith & Charles. She anchored the leggy look with a pair of Paul Andrew pumps and carried a black and gold box clutch, adorning her ears with Shaun Leane's Vermeil Talon earrings. To mingle with the award-winning play's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meghan wore her hair in her signature messy bun and a smokey eye for some added drama.
Tonight's musical gala, which took place at Central Hall Westminster, aids organizations like Help For Heroes, Combat Stress and Heads Together. As royal watchers know, the latter is a mental health advocacy organization started by Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate. It now, of course, includes the family's newest addition, Meghan, who made her first appearance for the cause back in February at the Royal Foundation Forum, where the "Fab Four" discussed their dedication to this and other causes championed by their foundation.
