The Duchess of Sussex stole the show on day four of the Invictus Games by appearing alongside Prince Harry in another jaw-dropping outfit – and according to a style expert, that could mean an announcement is on the horizon .
The mother-of-two, 42, opted for a monochrome ensemble with two tones of brown, while wearing £1,200 silk wide-leg pants from Gabriel Hearst, which she previously wore to the One Young World panel discussion in 2022.
Although she’s opted for inexpensive looks in her last few appearances, the Duchess went high-end today – and teamed the look with oversized £165 Miu Miu sunglasses and a Dani blouse at £365 from French designer L’agence.
Showing off her natural beauty, the royal left her hair long and loose and sported natural makeup while boosting her height with £590 heels from Manolo Blahnik.
As Meghan beamed alongside her husband as they met with NATO officials and then headed out to watch volleyball, her shirt and pants combo demonstrated once again that beige, camel and brown shades are her colors powerful.
Meghan opted for a monochrome two-tone ensemble of brown, while wearing £1,200 silk wide-leg pants from Gabriel Hearst as she appeared with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games today.
The Duchess, who arrived in Dusseldorf on Tuesday evening to join Prince Harry, has repeatedly opted for all-brown outfits for public engagements, dating back to her days working as a royal when she lived at Frogmore Cottage on the palace grounds from Kensington with Prince Harry.
In January 2020, Meghan sported a stunning sweater and skirt combo, paired with suede pumps and a fitted coat, all in different shades of camel, copper and beige.
She wore a £345 coat by Reiss with a £50 polo collar and an £85 skirt by Massimo Dutti for her appearance in London.
At the time, stylist Lucas Armitage told FEMAIL that her color choice was a “powerful sartorial move” – as just hours after the appearance she and Pricne Harry announced they were stepping down as members of the royal family and moved to the United States.
He said: “Meghan uses traditional clothing to assert her authority and grounds it in casual colors to show a level of calm.”
As she appeared in a glossy video with her husband Prince Harry in a video for the Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund in August, wearing a stylish beige outfit.
Before the Sussexes announced in 2020 that they were stepping down as senior royals, Meghan arrived in London to meet the high commissioner in a power outfit made up of varying shades of brown.
The look was remarkably similar to the one she wore the previous October, when the Duchess stepped out in a £95 trench coat dress from Banana Republic for a morning meeting at the University of Johannesburg.
It was later in the day that Prince Harry launched an attack on the British media, accusing the press of “harassment” and “relentless propaganda”.
Royal reporter Elizabeth Holmes speculated on the change on her own Instagram page, writing: “It’s the ultimate time to dress for the slideshow.”
And stylist Lucas revealed the fashion choice was likely intentional, saying: “The camel coat is a similar fashion choice she’s made many times before announcing controversial news.”
He went on to explain that even tones of brown could have been an important choice for the royal.
He said: “Camel is a neutral tone and often considered a calming and pure tone.
“As a stylist, camel seems like a great color tone to use because it’s less serious and dark than most shades and doesn’t draw too much attention like bolder color choices.”
Last month, the Duke and Duchess appeared in a loved-up video in which they surprised young future US leaders with phone calls. Sitting together on a loveseat in the sunny backyard of their Montecito home, the couple was filmed as they called to congratulate the winners of their new safer technology grant.
In the video, the Duchess looked stunning in a structured beige outfit with a high ruched neckline and sharp lines.
She opted for a $162 camel tube skirt with a matching $189 sleeveless top from Malibu Bleusalt.
And it could be determined that Meghan was once again making a statement with her stunning outfit, as it was the first time the couple had been seen amid growing speculation about their future in Hollywood and rumors of tensions behind the scenes.
Appearing in the video, beaming, they discuss a topic they’re passionate about, putting all rumors of unrest to rest.
