Meghan Markle Re-Wore Her Engagement Announcement Dress to Her Latest Royal Event
The Duchess of Sussex donned the elegant ensemble for a meaningful outing.
Thought Meghan Markle's WellChild Awards outfit looked familiar? You thought right. The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the charity event—which she attended with Prince Harry, reports People—on Tuesday, wearing the same green dress that she debuted on the day she and Harry announced their engagement back in November 2017.
She dressed up the piece similarly, too, with a nearly identical hairstyle and outerwear. The royal wore a wool coat and her signature loose waves to the event, which honored ill children and their caretakers (the charity is close to the duo's hearts).
During the engagement announcement nearly two years ago, she paired a white coat by Line the Label with the emerald green dress, which she also stepped back into for her post-proposal joint interview with Harry. The only difference between her original look and this re-wear? Her coat and shoes' color. While she opted for lighter accessories the first time around, she chose darker, caramel-colored tones for this outing.
This outing allowed the royal couple to engage with the award ceremony attendees, and their five-month-old son, Archie, was inevitably a popular topic of conversation. Meghan and Harry spoke with guests Milly Sutherland and her mother Angela during the reception at the WellChild Awards; the Sutherlands explained that the royal baby is starting to grow red hair, just like his dad, says his parents. "Meghan said he has and Harry said he definitely is, you can see it in his eyebrows," Angela said. "Harry said he'd had no hair for five months, but Meghan told him she had taken him to the playgroup and she said there were other children there with the same amount of hair or even less."
