LONDON, ENGLAND: Meghan Markle's bright red dress has not escaped scrutiny. The dress is uncannily similar to a red chiffon number that King Edward VIII's wife Wallis Simpson once wore. Meghan's red trousers and blouse ensemble reminded many of Simpson's 1971 dress. Meghan's blouse has an attached red scarf around her neck nearly identical to Simpson's dress. The Duchess not only had a similar smirk to Simpson but also styled the whole red outfit with golden hoops strikingly similar to her.

Misan Harriman, a well-known celebrity photographer, recently shared a pair of photos on social media, focusing on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Tuesday, October 4. The first photo was of Meghan in a blood-red blouse with a long bow hanging over her shoulder by the brand Another Tomorrow. However, that was not the only picture that looked so similar to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

According to The Daily Mail, Anna Pasternak, author of 'The American Duchess', claimed that Meghan's outfit drew a huge comparison to Simpson's. However, this was not all that was similar between the two. Even Harry and Edward had a lot of similarities. It is known that Edward left his throne to marry a commoner, Simpson, much like Harry's decision. Moreover, both Simpson and Markle were former American actresses and also divorcees.

Royal author Hugo vickers had even stated that Harry "radiated the same sadness" just like Edward, given that both of them stepped away from their royal duties to be the one they love.
