Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect™ with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."
Meghan Markle and the rest of the Royal Family celebrated Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday on Saturday, and, as tradition goes, the festivities included a parade and Trooping the Colour at Buckingham Palace.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a custom two-piece set by Carolina Herrera, which was made up of an off-the-shoulder button top and a midi skirt. Her hat, by Philip Treacy, is also bespoke. For accessories, the Duchess matched her Carolina Herrera white-and-gold clutch to her Plaisirs de Birks opal-and-gold earrings — a reminder of her official engagement announcement, according to the jewelry brand — and Birks "Iconic" stackable diamond rings in rose gold. As always, her beauty look was simple — but this time around, she opted for a proper, shiny blowout, rather than her usual messy bun or loose waves.
It also seems that the Duchess might just have a favorite when it comes to certain shades to wear, as her previous appearance also featured a similar ensemble in a romantic blush tone. Among the entire Royal Family — with the Queen in bright blue and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, in a more pastel version — we love how Markle stands out a little bit in her (unofficial) signature color of choice.
