Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Both Wore the #1 Royal Trend

The British royal family as we know it is about to look a lot different. Today, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended their final event as senior members of the royal family. Yes, they are still expected to attend family events, but they won't be there in any official capacity. Plus, today's event for Commonwealth Day also marks a rare joint appearance by both the Sussexes and the Cambridges.

For the service at Westminster Abbey, both Markle and Kate Middleton subscribed to the #1 royal trend that works every single time: monochrome. They both wore monochrome in very different ways, with Markle opting for a green Emilia Wickstead caped dress with a matching hat, and Middleton re-wearing a Catherine Walker coat along with all-red accessories. Middleton's coat could be a sign of solidarity, as she also wore it when she and Markle walked side-by-side into Christmas service in 2018. Scroll down to see how Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wore the monochrome trend to Commonwealth Day in London.

Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
