After experimenting with bright colors and darker color palettes in the past couple of weeks, Meghan Markle is back to wearing her signature neutral pink at the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition today.
She and Prince Harry arrived to London's Southbank Center this morning to visit the display, which celebrates what would have been the former South African president's 100th birthday.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a sleeveless trench coat dress featuring black double-breasted buttons down the front and a tie waist belt. The number is from House of Nonie, a brand based in Calgary, Canada. Perhaps it's a nod to the former Toronto resident's previous home country.
Markle paired the frock with matching blush pumps and a clutch and kept her hair in a loose bun.
The couple met Mandela's granddaughter, Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela, at the event.
They also toured the exhibit with a number of guests, including Andrew Mlangeni, 92, who was accused of sabotaging the former apartheid government and spent 26 years in jail at Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned.

They also viewed a performance by the Ubunye Choir in the exhibit.
The visit at the Mandela exhibit today marks the latest royal event for the Duchess, following a busy week last week. Her events included Prince Louis' christening, the Royal Air Force centenary celebrations, a two-day royal visit to Ireland with Prince Harry, and the women's singles final at Wimbledon, where she watched her dear friend Serena Williams play.
Markle kicked off her royal career wearing neutrals and soft pinks, but her recent looks have included a lemon-yellow Brandon Maxwell dress, then a number of darker ensembles including an olive Ralph Lauren outfit, a black Dior frock, a gray Roland Mouret dress, a Givenchy suit, and another LBD by Emilia Wickstead. However, today's outfit proved she's not done with neutrals yet.
