The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her second solo event of the day in Johannesburg, and wore what is shaping up to be her favorite color of fall (and perhaps her favorite of all time?).
Meghan Markle wore a green tie-waist cargo dress by Room 502, an ethically-produced Montreal-founded brand, which retails for $455. She slipped into the dress after a morning event, where she was wearing a different waist-belted ensemble (hello, signature silhouette). For her second event of the day, Markle attended an ActionAid discussion on gender-based violence in the region, and how to combat violence against girls in South Africa. Upon arrival, the 38-year-old mama received a bouquet of flowers, drawings and hugs from two young girls at the charity.
The cargo dress is the same exact hue as her Lisa Marie Fernandez linen "Rosetta” dress ($595), which she first wore in July when she and Archie attended Prince Harry’s charity polo match, then wore again just yesterday when she Skyped in to a meeting with Prince Harry and a group of female college students from the Nalikule College of Education while he was in Malawi.
We're sensing a theme here...
Markle paired the pretty camo-green shirtdress (sold out in that hue, but still available in pink and black) with her trusty black Manolo Blahnik pumps, Pichulik woven rope and brass earrings ($120) and an evil eye bracelet by Alemdara ($338).
Markle changed into the outfit from her earlier one: a Banana Republic double-breasted trench dress ($139), beige Stuart Weitzman Legend Pumps (the same ones she wore during Archie's birth announcement photoshoot) and the same evil eye bracelet.
In order to prevent her dress from flying up on the very windy day, Markle held the bottom of it down with one hand (and we're sure she's counting her lucky stars that she didn't bring a clutch along for the occasion).
Markle flew to the city from Cape Town over the weekend with baby Archie in tow, then attended a private activist breakfast at the British High Commissioner's home, Skyped in to the meeting with Prince Harry while he was in Malawi and made a surprise visit to Victoria Yards on Sunday.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reunite tomorrow for their last day of events on their royal tour of Africa. Then we (and our wallets) need just a few days weeks to recover from all this royal hoopla, okurr?
