Meghan Markle Had 2 Secret Events This Week—Here's What She Wore

As you probably know, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently embarked on their very public farewell tour in the UK (aka, their final events as senior members of the royal family). We relished in that green caped dress seen 'round the world, but as it turns out, Markle also attended a couple of under-the-radar events earlier this week before that final farewell. The photos just weren't released until now. Just when we thought we wouldn't see the couple for a while, we were #blessed with new images. 

We now know that she and Prince Harry met with young leaders of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust last week, and then on Monday, March 9, Markle met with scholars from 11 Commonwealth countries. For the event last week, Markle wore the Preen Glenda Dress ($1265), which has promptly sold out on other retailers despite its high price tag but is still available on Moda Operandi. For the second event, Markle wore a polished Scanlan Theodore Crepe Knit Cravat Dress ($650) with a tie-neck detail. Scroll down to see Meghan Markle's outfits and to shop similar pieces.

Earlier this week The Duchess of Sussex, in her role as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), met with the bright minds from across the Commonwealth to hear about their commitment to tackling the global challenges we all face. The Duchess spoke with Scholars studying and researching important areas surrounding; cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving health outcomes for citizens, and supporting decent work and economic growth. Paving the way as the next generation of leaders, these inspirational scholars, are spread far across the Commonwealth from Malawi to Malaysia, Ghana to Sri Lanka – all of whom will use the skills and knowledge they gain while studying in the UK to make a difference when they return to their home countries. The Duchess, who also attended university with support of a scholarship, is a strong advocate of accessible education for all. As the Royal Patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official) since January 2019, The Duchess has met and engaged with students, academics, and staff from ACU member universities across the Commonwealth to learn more about the vital work they do to address global challenges. As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.
