Meghan hosted a private breakfast for nine female South African activists at the British high commissioner’s residence in Bishopscourt. During their meeting, they discussed the diverse roles played by each of these women and how they come together to worked towards a more peaceful South Africa. They spoke openly about the murder issues throughout the country, specifically gender-based violence.
Meghan’s looked very professional in her black and white ensemble, featuring another affordable piece from J. Crew.
Top: Misha Nonoo Black Sleeveless Boyfriend Tank

Love Meghan’s look today? We asked the team to come up with some of their favourite #MirrorMeg options:
What did you think of Meghan’s look for her private breakfast?
Meghan is killing it! Loving all the J.Crew clothes! I think her choices are so smart, keeping it low key and somewhat affordable. It would be vulgar to display wealth with couture and diamonds (she hasn’t worn her engagement ring this trip) to people who may not have much. This keeps her approachable and makes others more comfortable with their own clothes. And she still looks amazing! Cheers Meg!
I love the harmony of this group. Meghan once again chose an appropriate outfit that allows her to blend in without wearing the country’s “costume.” The women wore their Sunday’s best to meet Meghan while their body language indicate a great level of comfort with Meghan. Meghan’s attempt to connect with the women and girls she’s meeting as their “sister” has been successful. The women have shown her both respect and camaraderie. I’m really really glad to see that Meghan knows and understands how she can use fashion strategically and not just wear fashion for the sake of fashion. I so hope she keeps this up.
I’ve read a few comments about Meghan’s clothes being too casual — her not looking like a princess. I’d like to point out Princess Diana in extremely casual clothes in pictures taken with children in Angola who had been affected by the minefields.
Meghan had obviously done her fashion homework for this tour. The six months of planning has really paid off. Kudos to Meghan!
Love that she is keeping away from heavily relying on the big name designers on this trip so far. Every outfit has been great so far!
I’m so pleased we got pictures from this private event. I really like Meghan’s neat outfit, a clever mix with High Street coordinates, thought I saw a suggestion the top might be Misha Nonoo again. Whatever, a plain black top is the classic pick for a monocrhome-mix skirt like this, which in itself manages original style flair with the original take on irregular stripes. A whole fresh angle to pinstripes for businesswear. Interested to see Meghan seems to be staying with economy picks — or economy compared with her previous couture choices.
I was also impressed to see that the top Meghan wore while tying a ribbon for the GBV victim has been ID’d. It’s a simple and respectful choice within a casual outfit and works just fine.

This is a great skirt. It is interesting to me that with all the money she has spent on couture, I almost always prefer her budget pieces. There are a few exceptions…her stunning butterfly gown, the blue cape dress from the last tour…but I just really like her typical cool low key style.

I’m with you on that! There are a few exceptions, but I almost always prefer her in more chill attire.
I love this look. She looks professional, but not overly formal. And the outfit looks great on her.
