After an announcement yesterday that Meghan would be scaling back her engagements, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a lunch reception hosted by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to meet Invictus family and friends. They they went on to a day of watching the Invictus Sailing on Sydney Harbour. The Duchess chatted with children in a chic casual ensemble.
Meghan wore the L’Agence ‘Brea’ pinstriped linen and cotton-blend blazer retailing for between £448-£510. This double breasted blazer has a wide peak lapel, diagonal placed brown wood effects buttons, a three button cuff and flap hip pockets. The blazer has slightly padded shoulders, is made from a cotton/linen blend and is full lined. We love this gorgeous blazer, it is absolutely perfect for both work and the weekend. Wear it over a black dress or black cropped trousers for work and take a style tip from Meghan and pair the jacket with dark denim. We love them with a light wash skinny denim, with the cuff slightly rolled. A perfect classic blazer that is so versatile, one we think we will see on Meghan for years to come.
Meghan wore her Tuxe ‘Renegade – Black’ body suit, retailing for £84. This simple black rib knit roll neck body suit is perfect for wearing with jeans or a pencil skirt. The bodysuit features a separate non detectable panty with 3 hook and eye closures. The ribbed sleeveless turtleneck is made from a modal/spandex blend with the attached panty featuring a 100% cotton hygiene lining; the rest is made from a nylon/spandex blend.
Meghan re-wore her Outland Denim ‘Harriet’ jeans in black, retailing for £108. These black skinny jeans have a slightly looser fit through the ankle, with 10.5″ high-rise waist and are made from organic denim. We first saw Meghan wear these jeans when she visited Dubbo and we were impressed by the incredible story behind the making of these jeans, from eco and sustainable materials and manufacturing processes to aiding women who were part of human trafficking for a better life.
The Duchess was carrying her Oroton ‘Avalon’ striped shoulder bag, retailing for roughly £180. The cross-body bag features an adjustable shoulder strap, a zip top middle interior compartment and two outer compartments, one with leather phone slip. The Avalon style was also available in a range of different sized bags and in black and olive stripes and navy and rust stripes. Meghan’s zip top style bag was also available in a range of solid colours, including navy, burgundy, mustard, beige, red, black and white. An interesting styling choice to mix the thinner pinstripes of the blazer with the thicker stripes on her bag, though it seems to really work on Meghan.
Meghan’s bag sold out almost instantly when she was seen carrying it to CHOGM. However, Oroton have updated their website with a ‘Back in Stock Notification’ and are taking pre-orders for the bag. The bag will be available in a few select boutiques and online in late October. You can register your interest for the bag here.
The Duchess of Sussex wore her Aquazzura ‘Denevue Bow’ Pumps 105, retailing for £582. These heels are a black suede pointed toe stiletto with cutout side of the the heel cover and pointed bow adorning the back of the heel for a quaint feminine touch. We have seen Meghan wear these heels on a number of occasions and she also has them in a blush colour-way. You can get Meghan’s pumps here. Get a replicate of these pumps here.
Meghan wore a new pair of earrings from Australian designer Natalie Marie Jewellery. The ‘Diamond Sun’ earrings cost £1,335. Three white marquise diamonds are arranged to resemble a sunbeam. The earrings are available in 14 carat white, yellow or rose gold and have a total diamond weight of 0.64 carat. These earrings do look very similar to her Adina Reyter earrings, but are quite a bit larger. You can purchase these earrings here.
The Royal wore 2 of her Catbird NYC ‘Threadbare’ rings, retailing for £34. These lightly hammered 14k yellow gold rings are only a very thin 0.5mm wide. The rings are available in yellow gold, rose gold and silver. We know that these are some of Meghan’s favourite rings to wear. A little bit lighter on the rings today from the Duchess.

Meghan then joined Harry to watch Elliott 7 Team final for the Invictus Sailing Event on Sydney Harbour. Both the Duke and Duchess rugged up to watch and congratulate all the teams participating.
Both the Duke and Duchess were dressed in official Invictus Games back wind-cheater jackets from Superdry. Superdry is the official team sponsor for Invictus Team UK and these jackets are not available to purchase. The Duchess’ jacket was black with yellow and grey contrasting panels over the shoulders and down the sides. Below we show a similar designed black wind-cheater to Harry’s from the Invictus Games, Canada 2017.
You can purchase a similar on to Harry’s from Rebel Sport, the official Invcitus clothing range, here.
Meghan wore Krewe ‘Gravier’ sunglasses, retailing for £333. These dark matte black frame sunglasses are hand-carved out of Italian acetate, with grey polarised lenses and 24K gold-plated hardware arms, bridge and interior frame structure. We saw these sunglasses on the first official day of the tour Down Under.
Meghan wore Veja ‘V-10’ Sneakers, retailing for £115. A white leather trainer with perforated sole on a cream rubber base. The shoe has black contrasting ‘V’ on either side and a black contrasting logo across the back of the heel. Veja creates responsibly made trainers, their website says “using organic cotton and leather which has been tanned with low levels of chemicals and water for its footwear uppers.” We know the Duchess loves to think about where her clothing comes from and wherever possible ensuring they are eco or sustainable.
A chic and casual look for the Duchess today. Did you know that we have only seen Meghan carry a bag twice on this tour so far? Hoping to see some more bag moments coming in the next week or so.
