Markle pares things back.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made their first official royal appearance in 2018, visiting Brixton’s Reprezent 107.3FM, a radio training program developed in response to the increase in youth-related violence in the area.
Markle was certainly the center of attention, pulling in a large crowd at the radio station headquarters. Of course, Markle’s outfit was also a talking point, with the royal-to-be choosing British and Canadian brands for her day out, but it was her no-fuss hair that really had everyone talking.
Either way, the world was happy to see Markle try something a little different in the hair stakes and we can’t help but imagine the bun being paired with a veil and tiara.
Kate Middleton, Markle’s future sister-in-law, is well-known for her wavy tresses, minimal makeup and barely-there pink nail polish – a very royal and very Middleton brand of beauty. So we do hope to see Markle carve out a beauty look all of her own, perhaps something a little more adventurous.
Clothing-wise, the British and Canadian brands Markle chose include Smythe, who is responsible for the coat, a Jigsaw scarf, a black sweater from Marks & Spencer, trousers by Burberry and pumps by Sarah Flint.
Markle’s coat and shoes are still available to purchase at this stage but we advise that if you have your eye on any of the above to move fast as the Markle effect is well and truly working its way across the British and Canadian retail industry.
Markle’s signature blowout was all tied up in a chic bun, with a few strands left out to frame her face just so. It’s possible the look was to make it easy for the Duchess-to-be to listen in on the radio programming through the headphones she donned. In fact, we’re sure a royal staffer would have given Markle the heads-up.
