Fresh from the announcement that Meghan Markle has been bestowed four new royal patronages by Queen Elizabeth, the Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her first official engagement as the royal patron of women’s charity Smart Works.
For the occasion, the duchess wore a $218 dress by maternity brand Hatch, with a cotton-twill coat by Oscar de la Renta, per royal commentator Emily Nash. Her earrings are by Kimai:
Fashion account @MeghansMirror identified Meghan’s amazing shoes as an old pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps which the Duchess of Sussex previously posted about on Instagram.
