Two days ago in London, photographers caught a very rare sight: Meghan Markle off duty and leaving lunch with her deputy director of communications, Christian Jones, in Notting Hill. The occasion offered the first good look at the Duchess of Sussex’s street style and non-working wardrobe. And it’s not a far cry from what she wore before she married into the royal family: Meghan dressed chicly but casually in a navy coat and what fans believe to be a pair of H&M Mama jeans, her nude Stuart Weitzman heels, Ray-Ban aviators, and a Mulberry bag.
This appears to be the second time Meghan has worn a piece from H&M’s maternity line this week. Meghan made headlines at her Wednesday event at the Mayhew for wearing a $35 beige dress from the brand with her Emporio Armani coat. It was Meghan’s first visit to her new patronage. She’s due to visit her two final newly-announced patronages, Association of Commonwealth Universities and the National Theatre, in the coming weeks.
While Meghan was pretty trendy in London, Meghan has kept her work wardrobe deliberately more classic. Meghan works with her friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney to plan the outfits for her royal engagements weeks in advance. A royal insider explained to ELLE.com previously that “Meghan is conscious of making her work wardrobe become too trend-conscious. Meghan is still new to this and aware everyone still watching her and wants to be respectful and doesn’t want her style to take away from the very important work she’s doing.”
