Royal Family News – How Meghan Markle Uses Style to Answer High-Pressure Events
Since marrying Prince Harry back in 2017, Meghan Markle has made herself, as far as fashion is concerned, one of the most influential Royal figures in history.
No matter what the Duchess of Sussex is facing, be it her wedding day, her explosive interview with billionaire talk show host Oprah Winfrey, or the Sussex’s triumphant UK return for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, she projects strength and power through her fashion sense. Continue reading and well discuss that in greater detail.
Royal Family News – Breaking Tradition
None of this is new for Meghan Markle, as Newsweek reports, she has shown a keen fashion sense throughout her adult life, a sense she has carried with her into the Royal Family. According to Newsweek, the royal diva has even taken offense at people who claimed she had a stylist. She, instead, designs her appearance to reflect her own message.
In May 2018, when the Duke and Duchess tied the knot, Meghan broke royal conventions with her attire, choosing to don a white dress despite it being her second marriage. Also notable, she didn’t use a British fashion house for her design, which is something that is reportedly traditional for royal brides to do.
Royal Family News – Sleeveless, Independent, and Strong
Another high-pressure event that Markle has faced since becoming a royal was the presentation of her two-day-old first-born son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the Windsor Castle press. Following in the same vein as her white wedding day dress, the duchess wore a white trench coat-inspired dress designed by British designer Grace Wales Bonner, who graduated from London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins fashion college in 2014.
The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly worn this type of dress on numerous occasions. The dress, being sleeveless and worn on such an official royal occasion, exuded the sense of independence and strength we’ve come to expect from Meghan Markle.
Royal Family News – Emerald Green for ‘Megxit’
The Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in 2020 marked a very high-pressure event for the Sussexes as it was their last official engagement before stepping down as working royals. The service followed the turbulent period that had come to be known by the press as “Megxit.”
For this occasion, Meghan wore a striking green outfit designed by royal dress designer, Emilia Wickstead. Emerald green, bold yet simple, the dress was notable for the flowing cape that draped over one shoulder.
