Meghan Markle wears her locks in a casual updo for Brixton engagement

By Chloe Best

Meghan Markle traded her signature glossy waves for something a bit more relaxed on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 9) as she joined Prince Harry for an official engagement. The actress's hair was pulled back into a relaxed bun for the visit to the studios of youth-orientated radio station Reprezent FM, located at POP Brixton.

The 36-year-old's bun was accompanied by a few loose strands which framed her face. She completed the look with natural make-up: a flawless base and nude lip added the perfect finishing touches.

It was a new look for Meghan, who typically wears her long hair down, and was most recently seen with sleek, side-swept tresses for the royal family's outing to church at the Sandringham Estate on Christmas Day.

The former Suits star also used the occasion to showcase her support for Canadian and British fashion, looking fashion forward in a pale camel coat by Canuck brand Smythe paired with a Marks and Spencer jumper and high-waisted Burberry trousers. She finished the look with a Jigsaw scarf to keep her warm on the cold January day.

Harry, 33, and Meghan were greeted with cheers and applause from fans who had waited outside Pop Brixton in the hope of catching a glimpse of the couple on their way into the radio studios.

The radio station was founded in 2003 by former teacher Shane Carey in response to a sudden increase in knife crime in nearby neighbourhood, Peckham. According to Mr Carey, Harry and Meghan approached him three days before Christmas asking if they could come and see the station for themselves. "We didn't invite them, they approached us just before Christmas," he said. "I was asked to give a major presentation the next day and have been working on this non-stop ever since. The reason they are coming is because we are aligned very closely to their interests, we do a lot of work around mental health. The whole model of Reprezent is peer mentoring, and I know that is something that really interests Prince Harry."
