Meghan’s Fashion On Commonwealth Day ServiceMarch 11, 2019
Today, Meghan joined the members of the royal family for the Commonwealth Day Service in London. It takes place in honor of the Commonwealth, which is observed by 53 countries.
Meghan arrived at the event with her husband, Prince Harry. Meghan wore a white coat and a hat for the occasion. She paired them with a printed Victoria Beckham dress, and dark green heels.
Last year, Meghan attended the Commonwealth Service for the first time for the first time. It was also her first official appearance with the Queen. The Duchess of Sussex wore a cream coat and navy dress by Amanda Wakeley for the event.
She visited Canada House, earlier today, with Prince Harry for a Commonwealth Day Youth event wearing a forest green Erdem coat, with Aquazzura Deneuve heels.
Meghan’s role within the Commonwealth has expanded in the last few days. On the International Women’s Day last week, she was named Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. It’s an organization which helps young people across the Commonwealth nations make positive change in their communities. Her husband is currently the President of the Trust, and the Queen is patron.
The day her new role was announced, she participated in a panel discussing women’s empowerment, rights, and issues. It included notable activists and thought leaders, including Annie Lennox, Julia Gillard, Chrisann Jarrett, Angeline Murimirwa, and Adwoa Aboah.
Meghan’s new role in the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust is the latest step forward for her as a royal. In January, the Palace revealed Meghan has taken on four royal patronages, (the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Mayhew, and Smart Works). All of them are centered on causes she likes to talk about.
