Meghan and Harry, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, today opened the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The powerful exhibition explores the life and times of Nelson Mandela, who passed away in 2013, and marks the 100th anniversary of his birth. The exhibit looks at how Nelson Mandela went from a young freedom fighter into the international movement leader against South Africa’s violent apartheid system.
Meghan’s look was very chic and many royal watchers were taken with the thoroughly modern styling. The sleeveless trench dress has been a signature style for Meghan Markle throughout the years – a style she even wore in her first appearance with Harry, Kate and William together with a belted Jason Wu version.
What we thought was notable about the outfit was the possible renewed slant towards Canadian brands with both House of Nonie and Birks being represented – of note because these are both brands that Meghan’s friend and professional stylist Jessica Mulroney has worked with in the past. While the dress was purchased in 2017 while Meghan was still living in Canada, her choice to wear it today may be a welcome sign that Jessica is working more closely on Meghan’s royal wardrobe. Either way, we love the nod to Canada in a look that is very much ‘Meghan’.
