Meghan Markle's Remembrance Day Ensemble Was Custom-Made by One of Her Fave Designers

Meghan Markle may not be celebrating Remembrance Day, an event that honors members of the Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty, with the royal family this year. But she still dressed like royalty for the occasion.

ICYMI: Over the weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery to honor fallen British troops while Queen Elizabeth and the working members of the royal family gathered at the Cenotaph in London.

During the event, the duke and duchess each laid flowers (picked by Markle from their personal garden) and wreaths on the graves of two commonwealth soldiers—one who served in the Royal Australian Air Force and another who served in the Royal Canadian Artillery.

As it turns out, Markle wasn’t messing around when it came to her ensemble (and she even kept to royal tradition). Per Harper’s Bazaar, the 39-year-old opted for a custom, maxi-length, belted wool coat by designer Brandon Maxwell. She accompanied the piece with a pair of pointed-toe pumps by London brand Jennifer Chamandi. She topped off her look with her Cartier Tank Française watch, a Cartier Love bracelet and a leather clutch. Markle kept with royal protocol by not only wearing all-black but by also pinning a red poppy flower, a symbol of those who have died at war, to her ensemble.

A custom coat and poppy brooches? Seems like Meghan is sticking to royal tradition even without joining with her in-laws across the pond.
