Meghan Markle is on a sartorial hot streak and she's showing no sign of slowing down! The royal stepped out with husband Prince Harry on Wednesday (Oct. 3) for a day of engagements in their namesake county, Sussex, where she showed her style savvy once again in a chic green leather skirt by Hugo Boss and her signature messy bun.

The former Suits star paired the edgy skirt with a matching blouse by & Other Stories and a cream Armani coat, clutching a ball-shaped handbag by Gabriela Hearst. Never one to leave her heels at home, even on such a jam-packed outing, Meghan anchored her elegant ensemble with a pair of Stuart Weitzman's bisque suede CURVIA pumps. She finished the look with a Missoma signet ring and bracelet, her brown locks in a soft updo with tresses framing her face and natural makeup to highlight her pretty features.

The Duchess of Sussex turned up the glamour for a busy day that included opening a new tech park at the University of Chichester, checking out the Sussex Declaration, touring the Royal Pavilion and visiting two organizations close to the couple's hearts - Survivor's Network for sexual abuse victims and the JOFF Youth Centre.

The special day in Sussex follows a string of stylish outings for the 37-year-old, who recently stepped out for her first solo engagement on Sept. 25 for the Oceania exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts. She paired a black Givenchy dress with sheer ribbed sleeves and a velvet bib on the torso with her favourite Aquazzura Deneuve Bow pumps, Birks Snowflake earrings and a Givenchy box clutch to watch a performance of Ngāti Rānana and take in 500 years worth of art.
