Duchess Meghan stuns in statement coat in video released for launch of new mental health initiative

By Meaghan Wray

Just days after Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, they were out supporting a cause close to their hearts. On May 10, Prince William and Kate stepped out to launch a new mental health initiative, and the new mom certainly put her best fashion foot forward in a video promoting it.

In footage that is believed to have been shot in 2018, Meghan rocked a pair of Hatch leather maternity leggings, a black T-shirt by Lavender Hill, black pumps and a gorgeous adorned statement coat, which appeared to be by William Vintage. She kept her raven locks back in a sleek low ponytail, which perfectly showed off her natural beauty – and wore her go-to Birks Bee Chic Quartz earrings, in which she’s glittered many times before. It also appears that she was twinning with Reese Witherspoon, who wore the seemingly identical coat to a Winkle In Time afterparty in 2018.

The Suits alum has previously worn items from William Vintage – such as a Dior coat she rocked while in New York City for her baby shower February, as well as the Oscar de la Renta coat she wore in Bristol.

The Cambridge and Sussex houses officially split in October 2018, but they joined to launch Shout, a 24-hour service that connects people with volunteers who help them in their moment of need, and also assists them with finding long-term support for their mental health struggles. These trained volunteers, with support from professionals, will reply to texts from people potentially struggling with suicidal thoughts, abuse, self-harm, bullying and other issues related to relationships. Shout has 1,000 volunteers right now, and father of three Prince William hopes to quadruple that number in the year. He has reached out to the public to help.

The last time the world caught a glimpse of the former actress, she debuted her baby boy Archie alongside her husband, Harry, at Windsor Castle. The 37-year-old was the picture of happy (and stylish!) in a white trench dress by British designer Grace Wales Bonner. She anchored the look in a pair of Monolo Blahnik pumps, accessorizing with the sweetest turquoise necklace by Jennifer Meyer – the same designer of her “mummy” necklace.
