In ultimate sign of respect, Meghan Markle has started color coordinating her outfits with the Queen
Meghan during her public appearances can be seen settling for light colored clothes. It could be because she is trying not to outshine the Queen.
Meghan Markle has had a drastic change in her fashion style ever since she entered the royal family but ever since her wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan has been trying her best to color coordinate with the Queen. Taking a look at some of the outfits worn by Duchess of Sussex during her public appearances we see that she is settling for light colored clothes.
For instance, she wore a pale Pink dress for Prince Charles 70th birthday at Buckingham Palace. A blush pink off-shoulder dress for Trooping the Colour ceremony and in her recent solo trip with the Queen, Meghan was spotted wearing a cream Givenchy cape dress. Speaking to Independent, the royal correspondents stated that it is no surprise for Meghan's color palette to change after the wedding.
They believe it is a sign of showing respect to the Queen. “There has been a shift in the dress for Meghan, who is classic but a little edgy in her taste,” Lizzi Zita, fashion broadcaster for Sky told the tabloid. "But for this particular occasion, their first official joint engagement in Cheshire, Meghan is the perfect princess in a more demure classic style."
"She wore neutral colors, and this would have been a carefully considered option not to outshine the Queen who likes to wear strong color with matching hats so that people can see her easily," she added. “I am sure we will see a return to her signature taste at more casual events but at the moment she is trying very hard to fulfill her duties and stay on the right side of her mother in law so fair play to her, she looked great.”
Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Sussex recently visited Cheshire to unveil a new bridge in Widnes and open the Storyhouse Theatre. Talking to People, Ingrid Seward, author of the recent biography of the 'Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I', revealed that Queen has been making sure Meghan knows how to be a royal. “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand,” he said. “It’s all about the monarchy. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown.”
This does not come as a surprise as the Queen has always managed to display grace and poise in every event she has attended. “She doesn’t want 70 years of hard work to be for nothing,” Ingrid added. ”I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.” Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth’s former press secretary Charles Anson said, "It is the way of the royal family—all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny. Showing people the ropes is a high priority for the Queen.”
