Meghan Markle broke out her casual summer wardrobe to support Prince Harry at a recent polo match.
On June 17, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed watching her husband play polo in Santa Monica, California, wearing an oversized denim button-down top over a pair of loose-fitting denim shorts that one fan account has attributed to the brand DÔEN. According to their website, the “Lane” short retail for $148 and are currently sold out in all sizes.

Markle styled the summer take on a Canadian tuxedo with a pair of black sunnies and brown sandals, keeping her hair in a half-up-half-down style with loose face-framing strands.

According to The Daily Mail, the Duke of Sussex plays for the Los Padres polo team under the name Harry Wales. Unfortunately, his team lost their semi-finals match on Friday and will not play in the upcoming Pacific Coast Circuit Intra-Circuit Cup finals.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently returned to The States from their first family visit to the U.K. since stepping back from their royal duties in March 2020. In early June, the Sussexes brought their three-year-old son Archie and one-year-old daughter Lilibet Diana to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. This marked Lilibet’s first-time meeting her great-grandmother and coincided with her first birthday.
The royal couple kept a low profile during their visit and were only briefly spotted behind the scenes at the Trooping the Colour before attending the National Service of Thanksgiving. Based on photographs from the festivities and reports from royal experts, the couple did not spend time  with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
In lieu of attending Platinum Jubilee festivities on June 4, the Sussex family celebrated Lilibet’s first birthday at Frogmore Cottage with friend and photographer Misan Harriman, who shared photos from the intimate gathering on Instagram. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled to Wales with eight-year-old Prince George and seven-year-old Princess Charlotte. They sent their regards to their niece on Twitter, writing, “Wishing a very happy birthday to Lilibet, turning one today!”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s visit to the Queen wasn’t the only secret trip the Duchess of Sussex took during the couple’s April voyage to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.
In a new post shared on June 13, the Amsterdam organization Project Fearless revealed that Markle stopped by in April to act as a guest coach for one of their after-school programs for girls and nonbinary children from the ages of 9 to 14. For the occasion, Meghan Markle wore a nude blazer over a black shirt and pants. Though the designer of the blazer is unconfirmed, one Markle fan account believes it to be by Chloé. Markle’s hair was let down in loose waves.
“Earlier this year, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, joined our first Entrepreneurship course as a guest coach,” Project Fearless shared on Instagram. “During her visit, she gave the girls inspiring and encouraging feedback on their sustainable business pitches, and enthusiastically joined in with a group exercise on facing fears.” (See the photos below.)

Meghan Markle praised the after-school programs in a statement shared by the organization. “Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless allow girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience, and tackle new challenges,” the Duchess said.
Following the couple’s private visit with Queen Elizabeth in April, which happened to mark Meghan Markle’s first time in the U.K. since their move to the states in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex brought their children to London to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

Though the couple reportedly introduced their one-year-old daughter, Lilibet Diana, to her great-grandmother, the family mostly remained out of the spotlight. Based on photographs from the festivities and reports from royal experts, the couple did not spend time with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
“For [Meghan and Harry], being here is all about honoring and celebrating the life and legacy of the queen, someone they have continued a close relationship with,” royal expert Omid Scobie said during an appearance on BBC Breakfast. “We know that is not the same with the other royal family members.”

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

Meghan Markle Revived Pretty Woman Style in Polka Dots For Prince Harry’s Polo Match

As Julia Roberts famously said in Pretty Woman, “I want the fairytale.” It’s a sentiment a young Meghan Markle – the California girl who went from small-screen star to royal bride when an English prince swept her off her feet – no doubt related to. And an outing for the Duchess of Sussex in Santa Barbara over the weekend suggests Vivian Ward’s post-makeover wardrobe made quite an impression on her, too.
The Duchess turned out to support her husband Prince Harry, a keen polo player, at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, where his Los Padres team took home the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy on Sunday, and her chosen outfit had more than a dash of Pretty Woman about it. Her breezy blouse with tie-front detail featured a polka-dot print – just like the dress Vivian wears to stomp the divots in the classic rom-com.

Meghan added high-waisted tailored shorts like those that were central to Julia’s ’90s power wardrobe in the film, once she’d relieved the boutiques of Rodeo Drive of much of their stock. Black Aquazzura heels, the requisite hat, and movie-star Valentino shades completed the Duchess’s retro look.

Meghan’s crisp white shorts, cinched with a black belt for added polish, are by Khaite, a New York brand that keeps cropping up in her wardrobe. She paired founder Cate Holstein’s off-the-shoulder bodysuit with tailored black trousers to join Prince Harry on stage at the Invictus Games in The Hague earlier this year. Khaite is typical of the labels that Meghan – who relied on Emilia Wickstead dresses and Givenchy formalwear as a working royal living in the UK – now gravitates towards as a mum-of-two living a private (though no less high-profile) life with her young family in Montecito.
These days, her style leans easy, minimalist and neutral, with a luxe touch. Think: cashmere separates by The Row and Loro Piana suiting for business trips to New York, Chanel ballet flats to pose for a relaxed family portrait, and swathes of taupe Ralph Lauren for a visit to the British Embassy in the Netherlands.

Meghan Markle’s Head-to-Toe Camel Look at the Invictus Games 2022 Will Remind You of Her Royal Wardrobe

The Invictus Games 2022 have seen a number of noteworthy looks from Meghan Markle. While the most talked-about ones have been her white slouchy power suit, and a mini cut-out dress from Valentino, there are a couple that flew under the radar but are just as remarkable. Before the Duchess of Sussex took blue denim out for a spin with a Brandon Maxwell belted jacket, she wore another version of the same wardrobe staple on Day 1 of the Games.
This time, the mother-of-two was seen in what was her most casual look of the weekend, featuring a lighter blue pair of jeans with rolled-up cuffs. She paired the Moussy jeans with a plain white T-shirt from Ralph Lauren, and to elevate the outfit, topped it off with a chic boucle jacket from Celine. The collarless piece came in a deep shade of navy blue and with gold buttons, which Markle complemented with her gold bangle and the Celine Cuir Triomphe bag with a metallic strap. She also swapped her heels for the day, with two-tone ballerina flats from Chanel, in the colors taupe and black, and wore a pair of Linda Farrow aviators.

Later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with the members of Team UK and Team Canada, and for the occasion, Markle opted for a monochromatic look in one of her favorite colors. A fan of neutrals, particularly beige hues, Markle often wore the understated colors during royal duties back in the UK, and this look was reminiscent of that. The Duchess was seen in a camel-colored cashmere coat from Ralph Lauren, which she had draped over a fitted turtleneck and trousers in the same shade. Markle completed the look with a sleek hairstyle and a stack of dainty gold bracelets.

Another day at the Invictus Games, another great look from Meghan Markle.
On April 17, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed chatting with members of the Canadian team during the IGF reception, wearing a beautiful white Valentino dress with thin floral cutouts across the shoulders and neckline. She paired the look with a bold red lip and wore her hair down and parted to one side. Prince Harry attended the event in a tan suit.
Over the weekend Markle reportedly spoke with one competitor’s wife about their children’s similar names. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have two children: two-year-old Archie and 10-month-old Lilibet Diana. Archie’s full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Sherry McBain, a nursing officer in the Royal Air Force, told the P.A. news agency that Markle bonded with her wife, Mandy, who attended a book reading at the Invictus Games with their son, Harrison. The Duchess reportedly confided that she and Prince Harry had trouble choosing which name should come first, but ultimately opted to make Harrison their son’s middle name.

White seems to be an ongoing theme for Meghan Markle this week. For her first appearance in The Hague on April 15, the Duchess nailed the oversized suit look in an all-white Valentino ensemble. She then opted for a white off-the-shoulder top to attend the event’s opening ceremony on April 16. For the trifecta, Markle donned a belted Brandon Maxwell coat while watching a volleyball match with Prince Harry on April 17.

Ahead of the Invictus Games, an international sporting event founded by the Duke of Sussex for wounded service members, the couple paid a visit to Queen Elizabeth, marking their first joint trip to the U.K. since moving to California in 2020. A spokesperson for the couple confirmed that the couple saw the queen at Windsor Castle, where she’s been staying since her COVID-19 diagnosis in February. The Invictus Games began on April 16 and will run until April 22.

Always the minimalist, Meghan Markle approaches each ensemble from a “less is more” perspective, even when the designer is celebrated for bombast. Though Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli can create jaw-dropping fashion spectacles—the custom gown with a built-in cape he crafted for Beyoncé’s appearance at the Oscars this March is a testament to that—the Duchess prefers his understated creations. After wearing his modish white mini-dress onstage at the Global Citizen Live concert in 2021 and filling her maternity wardrobe with bespoke pieces from the brand, Markle has kept Piccioli’s work in heavy rotation, and on April 15, she debuted her most elegant Valentino outfit to date.

Visiting the Hague to celebrate the competitors of 2022’s Invictus Games, Markle wore a double-breasted white suit that could have been pulled straight out of Bianca Jagger’s closet. While her tailored look felt timeless, she added new verve by playing with proportion. In an oversized blazer and roomy wide-leg pants, the Duchess’s outfit prioritized comfort without losing any of its visual appeal. Taking her stark color scheme from head to toe, she added on a pair of coordinated heels from Aquazurra, a delicate diamond pendant necklace, and Valentino’s newly minted it-bag, the One Stud.
Piccioli’s designs gave the royal a stylish return to the spotlight. Under the radar since accepting her NAACP Award in a dazzling Christopher John Rogers gown back in February, Markle’s appearance at the Invictus Games ceremony was her first public event in more than a month. Given that the games are the Duke of Sussex’s passion project, we can expect to see even more of her—and her Valentino wardrobe—when the games begin.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have paid a visit to Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle in the UK on their way to the fifth Invictus Games. It marks the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first visit since departing from the UK to California in March 2020. The Queen, now 95-years-old, and recently recovered from Covid-19, is facing mobility issues and has pulled out of several upcoming events.
Markle and Harry are making their way to Europe for the fifth Invictus Games taking place in the Dutch city of The Hague from this weekend onwards. Prior to returning together for the event, Prince Harry has previously visited twice on his own for two occasions: the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, in April 2021, and once more in July 2021 to unveil a statue of his mother, Princess Diana, with brother Prince William.

Launched by the Duke of Sussex for wounded service members and veterans, the Invictus Games will take place from April 16 to 22, 2022. Originally scheduled to take place in 2020, but postponed to this year due to the pandemic, the games will see Markle join the Duke on occasion too. This is not the Duchess of Sussex’s first experience at the event, having joined Prince Harry at the Toronto Games in 2017, the couple’s first official appearance together, and for the Sydney Games in 2018.

Meghan Markle‘s royal patronage with Mayhew, a British animal welfare charity, has ended after nearly three years as a patron. On Wednesday, the organization shared a heartfelt letter written by Markle to the community.
The Duchess of Sussex began her patronage after being introduced to Mayhew by her good friend and animal behaviorist, Oli Juste, who passed away earlier this year. “We shared, amongst many things, a commitment to animal welfare, and a deep love of rescue dogs,” Markle wrote in the letter. “In fact, it was Oli and his fiancé Rob who helped care for my rescue dog, Guy, when I had just moved to the UK and he was recovering from a debilitating accident. They loved him as though he was their own.”
Remembering her time spent as a patron, Markle wrote, “As my three-year patronage to Mayhew came to a close earlier this year, I reflected on the work they have achieved in the hardest of times—during a global pandemic with minimal resources, safeguarding staff from their stations in Afghanistan, and still resolving to remain steadfast in their vital day to day work for animal and human welfare throughout London and across the globe.”

The mother-of-two went on to add that in Juste’s memory, she has decided to dedicate a wing in Mayhew to him. “We will be creating the Oli Juste wing at Mayhew, to shelter the animals who may have a harder time finding their forever homes. Because much like Oli, they will never be forgotten, and they will always be loved,” wrote Markle.
The heartfelt letter concluded with a message for the community: “Though my time as patron of Mayhew has come to a close, my unwavering support has not. I encourage each of you to support in whatever way you are able. The emotional support of a rescue animal is unparalleled—as you’ll soon realize: it is not you who saves them, it is they who save you.”
Howard Bridges, the CEO of Mayhew also shared a few words on Markle’s departure: “We are indebted to The Duchess for her dedicated support over the past three years; she shares Mayhew’s values and commitment to improving the lives of in-need animals and pet owners in our local communities across the UK, and internationally.”

After months of inactivity on Spotify, Meghan Markle is returning to the streaming service with a new podcast. Titled Archetypes, the podcast will be hosted by Markle and will have a summer release.
Through the podcast, the Duchess of Sussex will continue championing women’s empowerment by diving into the origins of misogyny and sexism. The podcast aims to analyze and touch upon the beginnings of gender stereotypes and why they dictate women’s lives, bringing up language used towards women and how it defines them.

“This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us… but where do these stereotypes come from?” questions Markle in a teaser for the podcast. Archetypes will feature the mother-of-two in conversation with historians and experts on the subject to uncover the root cause of stereotypes. “This is Archetypes, the podcast where we dissect, explore, and subvert the labels that try to hold women back,” says Markle, adding, “I’ll have conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape our narratives. And I’ll talk to historians to understand how we even got here in the first place.”
The news of the podcast has been long awaited after Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry signed a multi-year deal with Spotify in partnership with their production company, Archewell Studio back in 2020. The Duke and Duchess mentioned this decision came with a mission to  “build community through shared experience, narratives and values,” and Markle’s Archetypes keeps that goal in mind.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced that they will be working with organizations in support and advancement of gender equality.
Sharing the news via their Archewall Foundation, the couple will achieve their goals through new grants going on to state: “As we cross into Women’s History Month, and ahead of International Women’s Day next week, Archewell Foundation is announcing a number of non-profit investments in leading organizations working to advance gender equity, build policies that empower women and families, ensure meaningful media representation for women, and provide women with a network of tools and support for gaining employment.”

On the first day of Women’s History Month, we’re pleased to announce that Archewell Foundation will be supporting Smart Works with a grant to help enable an important research project on female unemployment in the UK.Find out more on the Archewell website. https://t.co/OfZzF2TNvL pic.twitter.com/w2SU1jGwzd

We are thrilled to be receiving support from the Archewell Foundation, Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! Their amplification of issues central to women’s progress couldn’t come at a more critical time in the fight for gender justice.https://t.co/9MpBCjjfN2
— National Women’s Law Center (@nwlc) March 1, 2022

Amongst the four organizations receiving generous grants is Smart Works Charity, which works as a means to help women secure jobs. Markle joined the organization as a patron in 2019, and continues to support them. The other three organizations are The Center on Poverty and Inequity at Georgetown University Law Center, National Women’s Law Center, and The 19th. The grants will go towards helping marginalized girls in schools, hospitals, juvenile justice systems and so on, as well as focusing on BIPOC communities and those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are thrilled to be receiving support from the Archewell Foundation, Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex!”, tweeted The National Women’s Law Center.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have continually stressed on the importance of amplifying the voices and lives of marginalized people and centering action towards equality. They mentioned, “Part of Archewell Foundation’s core commitment is to build strong, compassionate, and equitable communities across the world. Although these grants have been announced as we recognize Women’s History Month, the work they represent is relevant and vital every day of the year.”

Last year, on occasion of Women’s History Month, the couple worked with an organization by the name of World Central Kitchen whereby they provided meals to women at a restaurant in Chicago. Markle also worked with Smart Works last year and wrote personalized notes of encouragement to women receiving support from them. “Our hope with this effort is to show that, when we all participate, even the smallest actions can have a ripple effect,” expressed Meghan and Harry.
