Meghan wore her Amanda Wakeley ‘Sculpted Tailoring Crombie Coat’, retailing for £875. This is an elegantly tailored coat, with a stand up notch collar, wide contrasting waistband and finely tailored panels through the rear with a small vent. The coat is made up of a polyester/viscose/cotton and elastane blend. Even though Meghan first debuted this coat last year, it is still available to purchase here.

Meghan opted for a pale blue and gold metallic floral brocade shift dress. The regal looking dress has an intricately woven floral brocade of quite large scale flowers (a smaller pattern would almost be a damask), upon a very pale blue metallic background.

The dress has a high neckline, with a graduating a-line flare, hitting just above the knee. This style of dress we assume would be sleeveless with a zip in the back, quite a retro silhouette. The designer of this dress is still unknown though there are similar dresses from both Dolce and Gabbana and Oscar de la Renta. Perhaps this is a another William Vintage piece? This was a gorgeous look on Meghan and really is befitting of her royal status, we hope to see more of this moving into the future.

Meghan carried her Wilbur and Gussie ‘Charlie’ clutch in oyster satin from the bespoke build-a-bag range. The clutch is simply just the base of the typically Charlie clutch style, with no other embellishments or beautiful jewelled brooches the label is famous for. We think it is quite fitting and cute that Meghan carried a clutch named Charlie for her father-in-law’s special day, whether intentional or not. The clutch retails for £205 and you can purchase it here.

Meghan wore beige suede pointed toe stiletto pumps. These appeared to be a pair of Paul Andrew ‘Pump it Up’ heels; we first saw this style in Northern Ireland in tan, though these shoes appear a lighter tone.

Meghan wore her gold bar earrings, which we have seen worn once before. These are different than her Birks gold bars, as they are longer, thinner and have rounded ends. They are thought to be from & Other Stories.


The Duchess opted for her Pippa Small ‘Herkimer Diamond Cup Ring’, retailing for £695, as well as her ‘Wajiha’ bangle, costing £360. You can purchase this ring here and the bangle here. Meghan also her Catbird NYC ‘Threadbare ring’ on her thumb. The ring retails for £35 and you can purchase it here.
