Meghan Markle Smiles in Her Purple Midi-Dress during First Outing since Candid Interview Aired

The Duchess of Sussex was all smiles as she stepped out for an event in a stunning purple ensemble. It was her first outing since her candid interview about the pressures of living in the spotlight.

Meghan Markle once again brought her fashion prowess to play at her recent outing.

As seen in a video clip shared on the Sussex’ Instagram page, the duchess attended the 10th Annual One Young World Summit opening ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.

The royal mom brought the glam in a breathtaking purple, silky midi-dress, which she paired with navy blue stilettos. The crowd went wild with cheers and screams as the duchess made her way to the stage.

As reported by HELLO! Magazine, the strikingly gorgeous dress, was designed by Babaton for Aritzia. 

The duchess beautifully recycled the dress which she wore to Birkenhead back in January while she was still pregnant for Archie. Her sharp stilettos were from one of her favorite brands, Manolo Blahnik.

This time, Meghan rocked her outfit without a coat or handbag and let her wavy hairstyle do all the magic. Her glam squad also didn’t fail to deliver as they kept her natural glow.

As seen in the caption of the post, this is the third time Meghan is attending the summit as a counselor.

However, it is her first time as a member of the British royal family and the Vice President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

This year, the Trust partnered with One Young World to bring 53 young commonwealth leaders to attend the summit.

According to Glamour, Meghan’s recycled purple dress was a tribute to her late mother-in-law’s purple outfit she wore in 1996. 

The Aritzia ensemble reportedly retailed for $138 but has been discounted to $49.99. The shoes are, however, pricey as they go for $625.

People Magazine reports that Meghan’s outing came two days after her emotional and candid interview with host Tom Bradby.

In the ITV Documentary titled “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey,” the royal couple touched on causes dear to their hearts during their recent Africa tour. 

However, the majority of the discussion was about the pressures of living in the spotlight and how Meghan has handled all the negative press attention.

The intimate documentary showed the royal mom getting candid with viewers about how the negative remarks have affected her and Harry.
