For their final engagement on the Royal Tour of South Africa, The Duke and Duchess Sussex attended a reception at the High Commissioner’s residence and meet Graca Machel, widow of the late Nelson Mandela. Meghan returned to a familiar piece by Nonie.
The Duchess recycled a blush pink trench dress by House of Nonie. Meghan wore the ‘Sleeveless Trench’ style with large oversized collar, gun flap, double breasted centre buttons, a self-tie belt, rear storm flap and a flared midi skirt giving a feminine look. We first saw this dress worn in in July 2018.
Meghan kept on her Stuart Weitzman ‘Legend’ pumps in beige suede that she wore earlier in the day. The pointed-toe four-inch high stiletto pumps kept the ensemble to a monochromatic styling.
The Duchess wore her Jennifer Meyer ‘Diamond Bezel with Turquoise Marquise Studs ‘ earrings, which she seems to have become quite fond of on the tour; we quite like them for their delicate size and pop of colour. The earrings retail for £485 and you can purchase them here.
What do you think of Meghan’s much favoured style of shirt and blazer style dresses on the tour? Was it a little too much or do you like this styling on the Duchess?
We feel that there was quite a lack of different options on this tour, with too many shirt dresses with self-tie belts, some even in the same colour. Whilst each outfit on their own looks perfectly fine on Meghan, when pulled all together as a collection of a Royal Tour wardrobe, the options in looks are lacking in comparison to the myriad of styles and colours the Duchess wore on the tour of New Zealand and South Pacific this time last year.
Yet the affordability of the Duchess’ tour wardrobe was a wonderful way for Meghan to ensure that she was relatable and approachable to the people she visited, who often come from difficult backgrounds. This way they did not feel obstructed from the Duchess if she was dressed in expensive items such as custom Givenchy couture she often opts for.
