Meghan Markle has honed a signature look over the past few months and it usually consists of a modest midi dress or skirt . But she threw caution to the wind for a night out with husband Prince Harry for a special performance of hit musical Hamilton at London’s Victoria Palace theatre.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, ditched the midi in favour of a mini and wowed in a thigh-skimming double-breasted tuxedo dress by Canadian fashion label Judith & Charles. The hem length may be daring for a royal, but Meghan’s look was young, fresh and sexy.
Showing off her incredibly toned legs, Meghan’s look was a dramatic departure from anything we’ve seen her in recently and it’s nice to see her changing things up a bit. The peak lapelled £327 ‘Digital’ tuxedo dress is currently available on the company’s website and is available in aubergine, black and navy. But as with most things Meghan wears, we can expect there to be a lot of interest and something tells us it won’t be around for long. Meghan opted for the sleek black version and teamed it with a pair of black pointed Paul Andrew ‘Pump-it-up’ heels and a small black clutch. The Duchess wore her hair back in a sleeker version of her signature messy bun, showing off gold Shaun Leane earrings. Meghan chatted with the show’s writer before the show.
It was the couple’s first public engagement for a month and they were guests of honour at the special charity performance. Meghan and Harry are getting to meet the cast and crew on the stage of London’s Victoria Palace Theatre and are set to address the audience alongside the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. But this isn’t the first time Meghan has seen the musical based on the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton. It’s actually her third. Meghan and Harry were spotted seated amongst a sell out crowd back in February. And Meghan also saw the show in New York with her friend Priyanka Chopra. Before she deleted her Instagram account Meghan posted a picture of the glamorous pair standing outside the theatre posing with the playbill.
