This Is Why Meghan Markle’s Wedding-Guest Accessories Caused Social Media to Freak Out Over the Weekend
It seems we have more in common with the Duchess of Sussex than we thought. Nope, we don’t have gorgeous freckles or a prince husband, but we do love mixing high- and low-fashion and that’s exactly what Meghan Markle did at a wedding over the weekend.
The duchess, who attended Princess Diana’s niece (and Prince Harry’s cousin) Celia McCorquodale’s wedding to George Woodhouse in Lincolnshire on Saturday, wore a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta printed long-sleeved maxi dress that retails for nearly $5,490. But it’s not the hefty price tag that had us common folk doing a double-take. Markle accessorized the pretty toile-like gown with her custom white-with-blue-soles Aquazzura pumps from her own wedding day (how thrifty!) and a $40 fascinator from fast-fashion retailer Marks & Spencer (how prudent!). It seems even the duchess knows that you can pair an inexpensive piece with a designer one and still *royally* work it.
Although she narrowly avoided a tumble down a grassy hill during her and Prince Harry’s entrance to his cousin’s wedding, Markle played it off gracefully and steadied herself with a hand from her new husband. Turns out those duchess lessons are really paying off…
