A day after attending Stephen Lawrence’s memorial, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were at engagements in London on Wednesday (April 25) marking Anzac Day, which commemorates Australian and New Zealand military servicemen and women who have died in service.
Those who may have been calling for a hat and sleeves from Meghan’s prior memorial look may appreciate this duo of conservative ensembles, each styled with a remembrance poppy pin.
For the first look at the dawn service, she wore a Smythe ‘Pagoda’ coat paired with Sarah Flint ‘Jay’ pumps and a black Gucci ‘Dionysus’ velvet mini bag. The double-breasted design and double-flap pocket detail of the coat as well as her wide-brim hat added some spirited personality to the look.
Opting for one of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to designers, Meghan donned a bespoke Emilia Wickstead blazer and dress for the second service at Westminster Abbey.
The vintage-inspired nature of this ladylike look was quite charming—even amidst its more solemn, dark mood. To add just a touch of sass, she accessorised with a Philip Treacy ‘Dragonfly’ beret. Another pair of pumps—black suede Manolo Blahnik BB heels this time around—along with a Jimmy Choo ‘J Box’ clutch completed the ensemble in classic form.
