Duchess of Sussex at ANZAC Memorial opening in black Emilia Wickstead

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have attended the opening of the expansion of the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park Sydney, which is dedicated to honouring all servicemen and women of Australia who serve their country. The Duke and Duchess cut a solemn duo at the ceremony with Prince Harry dressed in his military uniform and the Duchess respectful in a black dress and fascinator.

The Duchess wore a black Emilia Wickstead dress: the ‘Camila’ wool-crepe dress, retailing for £1,595. This is a high neck dress with short sleeves, and contrasting white buttons running all the way down the centre front of the bodice and skirt. A full flowing pleated skirt hits to a few inches above the ankle for a vintage feminine feel. The dress is made from heavyweight wool crepe, featuring contoured seams over the bodice for a feminine shape, invisible rear zip closure and side pockets in the skirt. This is a beautiful style of dress on Meghan and very demure for the occasion. This is part of the Emilia Wickstead Pre-Autumn/Winter 2019 Collection. Meghan’s dress was created in a bespoke black colour-way for her. We show the dress in white below (as seen on Jenna Coleman in the past), and it was also available in red. You can purchase the dress in white here and here. Try this to get Meghan’s look, purchase here.

The Duchess topped her outfit with a Philip Treacy ‘OC 471’ fascinator. A black parasisal (straw) beret base with pinched drop over one edge. Wide swirled black parasisal loops twist and envelope a thin pointed black quill that adorn the base. Meghan has previously worn this fascinator to a friend’s wedding earlier in the year. You can enquire about this hat here.

The Duchess wore a pair of Tabitha Simmons Millie Slingback Pump, retailing for £815. These black suede slingback pumps have a side bow on the strap. This heel style is very similar to her Aquazzura Deneuve Bow pump but is slightly lower heel height from Meghan. These heels also are available in a lower kitten heel and in red.

We have seen Meghan wear Tabitha Simmons black velvet boots and the Duchess of Cambridge wearing their lizard skin pumps on the Canadian 2011 Tour. You can purchase these pumps here and in the lower kitten heel here. Try these to get the look, here.

The Duchess accessorised with her Pippa Small jewellery. Meghan wore here Herkimer diamond earrings, Herkimer “Almost’ Ring and Single Row Blush Ring. The same earrings and rings that she wore to Princess Eugenie’s wedding. She was also wearing a thin gold bracelet we saw at day 3 of CHOGM, but still remains unidentified.

We think Meghan looked beautiful and respectful for the service, a very refined look.
