The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have undertaken a series of engagements today in Sussex, starting in Chichester at Eades House and moving on to University of Chichester, Bognor Regis. For today’s engagement, the Duchess wore a chic tailored cream coat and striking dark green leather skirt.
Meghan and Harry greeted the huge waiting crowds in their Duchy with big smiles and laughs.
The Duchess chose a cream coat from Emporio Armani. The ‘Cashmere Double Cloth Coat with Classic Lapels’ retails for £499. It is an exquisitely tailored coat made from 100% cashmere and double cloth. The unlined coat features a notch collar, three-button front closure, two hip flap pockets, a welt breast pocket, three buttoned cuffs, rear vent and is cut on the biase. The coat is carefully constructed from numerous rear panels and darts over the front bodice to create a sleek, fitted and tailored look. This beautiful classic coat will stand the test of time, perfect for the office and from day to night. This a favourite coat of ours from Meghan. The coat has sold out online, due to it’s popularity but you can still view it here.

Meghan wore & Other Stories ‘Straight Fit Silk Shirt’, retailing for a very reasonable £69. This shirt showcases a thin pointed collar, hidden button closures down the centre and rear, centre box pleat. The button cuffs can be done up for a sleeker look or rolled for a more casual vibe, which we saw Meghan do. The shirt has a curved hem and dips lower at the back. The & Other Stories is a Swedish label and a favourite brand of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. It is a subsidiary of H&M brand, also a favourite of Victoria’s. You can purchase the shirt here.
The Duchess chose a sleek leather panel skirt from Hugo Boss. The ‘Lambskin leather pencil skirt with panelled structure’, retailing for £369. This fitted pencil skirt is made from soft lambskin leather. The skirt is constructed from precisely cut vertical and horizontal panels down the centre and toward the bottom third of the skirt. Two darts feature over the front and rear of the skirt with an exposed rear zipper. We love this skirt to mix up your office look adding some fun, but still keeping a professional look. A great fashion piece as well, when worn with an with an oversized coat and ankle booties. Meghan looked super chic in this gorgeous forest green skirt. We love to see a Royal add a twist to their look. You can purchase the skirt here.
Meghan carried the Gabriella Hearst ‘Demi’ satin tote in Italian emerald satin. The bag retails for £1,695 and is a smaller version of the Nina bag. The Demi bag is named after actress Demi Moore and is shaped like a fortune cookie. The bag has a thick top handle finished in gold toned hardware with a beautifully designed gold twist lock. The bag is backed in leather to preserve the intricate and sculptural shape. Whilst satin bags might be reserved for evening events or weddings, we love that Meghan took this one out in the day. We are starting to think she really likes dark green handbags as well. You can purchase the bag here.
Meghan wore her Stuart Weitzman ‘Legend Pump’, retailing for £351. The classic stiletto suede heel is in the Haze Beige colour-way and is also available in numerous other shades. The straight back spiked heel measures 95mm or 3.5 inches in height – a little lower than the Duchess usually favours – while the front has a lower dipped vamp and is made from leather outer and inner. You can purchase her shoes here.
Meghan accessorised with her Adina Reyter ‘Super Tiny Solid Pave Teardrop Necklace’, retailing for £289. This ultra fine and feminine 14k yellow gold necklace has a teardrop encrusted with 0.04 Ct pavé diamonds. The teardrop measures approximately 3mm wide and 6mm tall set on an adjustable chain. You can purchase the necklace here.
Meghan wore a new ring by Missoma. The ‘Mantra Open Heart Signet Ring’, retailing for £85. The wide band ring is in stark contrast to Meghan’s other threadbare rings and is a standout piece. The 18ct gold vermeil ring is engraved with a heart design and crystal-embellished evil eye. The evil eye is an ancient symbol and believed to protect a person and ward off evil or a humans evil eye. It can be worn when any occasion of good luck is required. The evil eye is normally blue in colour and can be seen across Greece, Turkey, Egypt and other Asian cultures. You can purchase the ring here.
Meghan stacked up 3 new bracelets, also all by Missoma. Meghan wore the ‘Gold Leaf Bracelet’ retailing for £79, purchase here. The ‘Double Chain Bracelet’, retailing for £69, purchase here. The ‘Rainbow Moonstone Beaded Leaf Bracelet’, retailing for £75, purchase here. Each bracelet is thin and finely crafted from 18ct gold. The gold leaf bracelet has very small gold leaf shaped charms interspersed along the thin chain. The double chain bracelet has small gold balls haphazardly spaced along the fine double chain. The Rainbow Moonstone Beaded Leaf Bracelet is a slight twist on the gold leaf bracelet with small white moonstones and gold balls placed between the gold leaf charms. An interesting twist/combination on the first and second bracelets. All three bracelets stacked together make a beautiful statement and Meghan perfectly compliments Prince Harry with his three stacked bracelets.
Meghan also wore 2 of her Catbird NYC ‘Threadbare’ rings, retailing for £34. Purchase the ring here.
The Duchess was resplendently beautiful today on her visit to Sussex.
