Prince Harry and Meghan Markle traveled north to Birkenhead, England, on Monday for a number of engagements in the Merseyside town. As usual, their royal visit included trips to a number of community projects, but it began with a visit to view a new statue by artist Jim Whelan that marks the 100th anniversary of poet Wilfred Owen’s death. For the occasion, the Duchess of Sussex surprised us with a bold and unexpected color clash. She teamed a bright red belted coat by Canadian brand Sentaler with a purple midi dress believed to be the Maxwell dress by Babaton. Red heels and a tan Gabriela Hearst handbag finished this eye-catching look.
The duchess has tended to opt for black or neutral hues for public engagements before, but perhaps Meghan has been taking a leaf out of the queen’s book by choosing a bright color that’s easily spotted in the crowd? She definitely made a statement as she stepped out to meet the members of the public who’d waited in the cold for their royal moment. Take a closer look at her bright and beautiful outfit ahead.
