Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry’s wife wears purple at One Young World ceremony in London


Meghan Markle put on a colourful display as she matched a block purple dress with a pair of navy blue heels to attend the event. She showed her support without Prince Harry, 34, on the opening night which took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The Duchess of Sussex has attended the event before, sitting as a counsellor in 2014 and again in 2016. This year, she stepped out in her role as the vice president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which is partnering with One Young World.

The official Instagram page of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, sussexroyal, posted about Meghan’s connection to non-profit organisation.

The post said: “The Duchess of Sussex will attend @OneYoungWorld opening ceremony this evening to continue her support for this amazing collective of global youth ambassadors.

“Her Royal Highness was a counsellor for OYW in Dublin in 2014 as well as in Ottawa in 2016.”

Meghan embraced Autumn fashion in the on-trend dark purple number which had long sleeves.

She stepped out wearing the bright gown which she first wore in January this year while she was pregnant with Archie Harrison, five months. 

The Babaton Maxwell Dress by Artizia was originally on sale for $138, or £107, but it is now sold out.

Meghan’s statement garment pulled her in at the waist and had a loose midi skirt.

A subtle flash of leg could be seen as she walked from a slit up the side of the skirt.

The Duchess opted for trendy clashing colours and completed the look with suede navy high heeled shoes.

The dress had a high neckline and she let the bold look speak for itself by choosing not to wear much jewellery.

Meghan was seen meeting with members of the organisation as she arrived at the venue in London.

Her long black locks were down and styled into a middle pattern and bouncy curl.

She opted for a subtle glam make-up look with lashings of mascara and a clear lip gloss.

The Duchess recently stepped out to attend the WellChild Awards with Prince Harry in London.

For the occasion, she made an emotional nod to her past by rewore her emerald engagement dress.

Meghan and Harry recently enjoyed a ten day visit to Africa for an official royal tour.

The Duchess showed off her thrifty side by wearing a number of affordable pieces as well as garments she has worn before

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.

Actress

Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.

Relationships

In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
