The newly minted Duchess of Sussex chose a summery pale-pink dress by the Canadian label Nonie for a royal appearance with Prince Harry on Tuesday. The couple visited the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition at London’s Southbank Centre, which celebrates what would have been the late South African president’s 100th birthday.
Part of Nonie’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, the blush-toned trench dress retails for $825. The sleeveless, midi number features a belted waist, trench-style buttons, and an open detail in the back.
The duchess has received backlash for showing off her shoulders at royal events. Will traditionalists also label this dress ‘inappropriate,’ or can the public finally accept the woman’s right to bare arms?
