Like just about everyone else at the moment, we’ve found ourselves overcome with Meghan Markle fashion fever during her royal tour for the Invictus Games.
However, keen observers noticed the Duchess used a classic alteration hack, to avoid a Marilyn Monroe-esque billowing skirt moment and/or a raised eyebrow from conservative royal fans.
At the unveiling of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy at Tongan secondary school, Tupou College, on Friday, Meghan wore a blue shirt dress with high, mid-thigh slits from US label Veronica Beard. The thigh-slits, however were taken down to knee-length.
She teamed the flowing dress with a pair of Banana Republic Madison 12-Hour Side Cut-Out Pumps, and you can actually get a black suede alternative on sale right now for $126 AUD.
We're wondering if her more subdued look was due to one of her previous royal tour outfits which also featured a dress split - more than what we're used to seeing on a royal.
