Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry’s wife wears black at Remembrance service in London

Meghan Markle showed her respects in black as she attended the National Service of Remembrance. The royal made the appearance at her second ever Remembrance Sunday along with other members of the Royal Family. She marked her respects in a belted black coat and oversized black hat.

Meghan donned a high neck lace top which could be seen under her thick jacket.

She stood on the balcony next to Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and was spotted closing her eyes during the service.

The two royals watched on as their husbands, Prince Harry and Prince Edward, placed wreaths at The Cenotaph.


Meghan’s hair was pulled back off her face and covered up by a large oversized hat.

The accessory had a thin leather strip around the middle which had a bow at the front.

She stayed warm by wearing black leather gloves which could be seen as she held a songbook during the service.

The Duchess opted for glamorous eye makeup with dark eyeshadow, winged eyeliner and lashings of mascara.

She dressed up the look wearing a pair of small ruby earrings which are on sale for £25,700.

Meghan completed the look with a pair of Aquazzura stiletto high heels, costing £490.

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.
