Meghan Markle Is Our New Girl Power Icon
Today the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle made their first official visit together, alongside Prince William and Prince Harry, at the The Royal Foundation’s first forum to discuss their future charity work plans. Meghan showed her support for the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements at the event, saying: “I think right now in the climate we are seeing so many campaigns, I mean #MeToo and Time’s Up, and there is no better time to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered, and people really helping to support them – men included. I mean, it makes such a tremendous difference. So … I guess we wait a couple of months and we can hit the ground running.”
The Duchess and Meghan co-ordinated their outfits, both wearing blue dresses, however the Suits star proved she isn’t about to change her style for her new public role. Meghan wore a smart, but relaxed, navy satin sleeveless belted wrap dress by New York designer Jason Wu, which she paired with simple black Aquazzura heels with a black ankle strap. Meanwhile the Duchess wore a more conservative £99 royal blue sleeved dress with two black buttons at the waist by her favourite maternity label Seraphine.
