Meghan Markle Is in Full-On Parenting Mode (& Changes Up Her Hair) at Outing Abroad

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently visiting the Netherlands for the 2022 Invictus Games and they've made some surprise visits to family members and showed off their best style along the way. Now, in a recent set of photos from day one of the games, the Duchess of Sussex was seen in full-on parenting mode (while also sporting a totally different hairdo).

Markle showed off her mom skills at Zuiderpark, where she was seen riding around in a mini Land Rover that was being driven by a young girl. In the set of photos—which were taken at the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge—the duchess smiles and laughs while perched on the back of the tiny white vehicle. She also appears to be holding the Italian flag (which may be the nationality of her young driver) as well as a tiny stuffed bear.

As a mother of two, we loved seeing Markle show off her fondness for kids, and she wasn't the only one. Prince Harry also participated in the game, and he was seen riding around in a different mini Land Rover with his own young driver.

Besides this display of parenting prowess, we couldn't help but notice that the Duchess of Sussex had switched up her hair as well. Just yesterday, Markle was spotted wearing a gorgeous Valentino suit, while her hair hung down in a middle part with slight natural waves.

Yet, for this latest event, it appears the duchess opted for an updo, with her hair pulled back into a tight ponytail (probably so she could enjoy the race without hair falling in her face).

The Invictus Games is an annual international sporting event that is dedicated to wounded or sick servicemen, as well as veterans, and it was founded by Prince Harry. We can't wait to see how he and Meghan enjoy the rest of the games.
