Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry’s wife marks respects in navy coat and fascinator

Meghan Markle put on a sombre display as she wore a long navy coat to attend the 91st Field of Remembrance. She stayed warm by pairing the winter jacket with navy leather gloves with black leather Tamara Mellon PIC knee high boots, on sale for around £621. The Duchess of Sussex was seen outside Westminster Abbey with Prince Harry, 35.

The Duchess planted a cross at Westminster Abbey which carried a personal message in memory of those who lost their lives in service.

She placed the cross for the first time after Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, pulled out following a chest infection.

Meghan joined her husband, Prince Harry, who was dressed in his military uniform.


The Duchess prepared for the colder weather by matching the oversized coat with a long dress.

She completed the look with a red poppy onto the top, signifying her respect.

The black dress had a loose midi skirt which continued down and she wore a pair of slouchy black leather boots.

The shoes had a small heel and the tops of them were covered by her dress.

Meghan removed her beige coat to reveal a white shirt which had short puffy sleeves.

The shirt, which she wore tucked into her skirt, had a v-neckline and long tie down the front.

She added a black silk skirt and a collection of gold necklaces.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
