Except you’ve been living under a rock or you are completely shut to major happenings from the international scenes, then we may need to tell you that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken the decision of QUITTING the British Royal family.
Why did this all happen?!
We know, it’s quite the scandal, but here’s a little rundown…
Meghan, a woman of colour have faced severe media criticism and bullying since (before) assuming the prestigious position of Duchess of Sussex. Harry has gotten some of this cruelty robbed onto him. He related the maltreatments to what his late mother (Princess Diana) experienced during her time and as he puts in a very important press briefing, “the media is a powerful tool.” There are other inside Royal dealings that have been unfavorable to the couple but they dare not speak of them in public. The beloved pair concluded that it was time to walk away from it all, hence, their controversial decision to quit the royal family.
Now, let’s talk fashion!
For their final royal duty, Harry and Meghan attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey which also had the Queen and top royal family members as William and Kate in attendance.
Meghan wore a green Emilia Wickstead midi dress which featured a stylish cape and a matching fancy hat by William Chambers. She carried a coordinating mini handbag and walked gracefully in nude pumps. Harry who walked beside her decked in a navy blue suit (with a green inner lining which can only be seen when the jacket is unbuttoned).
Meanwhile, a pleated variation of Meghan’s green dress by same designer is now in demand.
Prior to this event, the couple who are so much loved by millennials world over were last seen at the Mountbatten Festival of Music on Saturday night, both dressed in bold red.
The Duke of Sussex looked dapper in his Royal Marines officer uniform while the Duchess looked quite like a movie star in this scarlet cape gown by Safiyaa which she matched with a red boxy clutch and red heels.
These photos will remain iconic as people will look back at them as the final appearance of the couple as royalty. They are scheduled to begin their official transitioning by the end of this month.
We will definitely miss their royal fashion moments…
