Since becoming the Duchess of Sussex Meghan’s every move, and outfit have been carefully documented. As the newlyweds touched down in Dublin on their first international engagement as a royal couple, Meghan’s effortless style showed no sign of wavering.
Stepping off the plane, hand-in-hand with her new husband, Meghan wore a dark green pencil skirt and three-quarter-length sleeve combo by the designer of her wedding dress, Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy. The highly appropriate colour, clearly a nod to the Emerald Isle, is the most thematic of Meghan’s outfits to date. The Duchess kept it simple and chic pairing her forest green ensemble with tan court shoes and a tan handbag. Prince Harry also gets our seal of approval with his green tie which co-ordinated beautifully with his new wife’s outfit.
Meghan sported her next outfit at the couple’s first stop of the day – the British Ambassador’s residence in Dublin. The Duchess wore a midi length LDB by Emilia Wickstead. This decision is particularly notable as it has been reported that, following the Royal Wedding, Wickstead criticised the design of Meghan’s dress arguing it was a copy of one of her own pieces. Regardless, Megan looked as stunning as always. Prince Harry appeared to wear the same suit but, once again, changed his tie to coordinate with Meghan – cute!
For her second day in Ireland, the Duchess stepped out in another faithful staple – a Givenchy black trouser suit. As the couple visited Croke Park and Trinity College, Meghan looked effortlessly chic, and comfortable in her trouser suit paired with a simple white tee, black Sarah Flint stilettos, a Givenchy belt and a black fold-over clutch.
After another quick change Meghan and Harry greeted Irish President, Michael D. Higgins, before visiting a memorial to Ireland’s Great Famine Years, an Irish Emigration Museum and a technology startup hub. Meghan looked as elegant as ever in a boatneck Roland Mouret midi dress in one of her signature colours – grey. The Duchess paired her dress with black Paul Andrew heels, Birks earrings and a black Fendi bag.
The new Duchess of Sussex is undoubtedly one of the biggest style icons of the present day and, here at The Style Edit HQ, we can’t wait to see what she showcases next.
