Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended services commemorating Anzac Day in London today. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
The Anzac Day service in London began at dawn (5am BST) at Wellington Arch. An early morning for Meghan and Harry – and the many who gathered to commemorate the day. While today’s events were most certainly not about the clothes, as a fashion blog that is the aspect we’ll cover. You can get lots of great coverage of Anzac Day and the significance of the important day here.
After some criticism about her lack of hat (and coat) at recent events, Meghan’s look today for the memorial event was was markedly different. She paired her slim cut Smythe coat with a “floppy” black hat, and let her hair fall down under it. People are divided over the coat itself, however it perfectly suited the somber occasion. The floppy hat was Meghan’s distinctive style touch – a floppy hat is very different than the standard fascinator!
