It would seem like Meghan Markle’s royal training wheels are well and truly off, with the Duchess of Sussex attending five events in the space of 24 hours.
All of which involved a different – and flawless – outfit change. (Teach us your ways, please.)
From debuting her first pant suit since becoming a royal to controversially wearing one of Duchess Catherine’s favourite designers, Meghan’s busy schedule of royal engagements started with the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Royal Air Force with the Queen before flying to Ireland for another string of royal engagements.
Her Irish tour also marked the first time Meghan enlisted the help of Canadian-based stylist and close friend Jessica Mulroney who, as Vanity Fair reports, also helped style the Duchess’ spectacular yellow dress moment from last week.
1. Meghan Markle wore Dior at the RAF celebrations.
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force with the royal family, the Duchess’ navy blue Dior number almost looked like a throwback to her Givenchy wedding dress. Markle wore a bespoke Dior tea-dress with her signature boat neck that was cinched at the waist with a thin belt.
2. And then dazzled in an emerald green Givenchy number in Dublin.
Immediately jetting to Dublin for her joint Ireland tour with Prince Harry, the Duchess looked impeccably refreshed and flawless stepping onto the tarmac. She wore a sweater and pencil skirt combination by one of her go-to designers, Givenchy, and completed her look with matching camel court heels and a tote by renowned UK leather goods brand Strathberry of London.
3. A controversial choice: the Duchess wore Emilia Wickstead for the first time.
You might remember the post-wedding controversy after one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead, accused Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer of copying one of her gowns.
However, it seems like all has been forgotten now. Meghan wore a sleeveless dress by the designer at a reception held at the residence of Robin Barnett, the British Ambassador to Ireland.
Meghan caused a bit of controversy herself at this dinner after it was revealed that the Duchess broke royal protocol for commenting on Ireland’s abortion amendment to a fellow party guest.
4. Soft and grey in Roland Mouret.
Choosing another bateau-neckline dress for her second day of engagements, the Duchess chose a more conservative look to meet the Irish president Michael Higgins.
She accessorised her Rouland Mouret midi-dress with a set of court heels, a black tote, and correct us if we’re wrong, but we think we can see a bit of Essie nail polish in ‘Ballet Slippers,’ $14.95 on her fingertips. It’s reportedly the only colour the Queen has worn for the past 30 years.
5. Meghan wore Givenchy again in arguably her best look ever.
Meghan Markle gave us definite Rachel Zane vibes (her Suits character) in her Givenchy pant suit and reminded us that she isn’t just any princess – she’s a cool princess.
The Duchess ventured where no royal has before, wearing this chic number while on an appearance to the Croke Park sporting arena and to top it all off she also wore a T-shirt underneath her blazer.
Now you’re all caught up! Which of Meghan’s outfits is your favourite? Tell us in a comment.
Fashion sense aside, these are all the reasons why we love Meghan Markle and more.
