The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the second time within a week to attend the Well Child awards in London.
A few days ago the pair attended a charity performance of Hamilton in the West End, where Meghan turned heads in a little tux dress by Judith & Charles. Tonight, she opted for another classic black look, this time in the form of a trouser suit.
The chic two-piece hails from Altuzarra’s pre-spring 2019 collection, and comprises the ‘Acacia’ tailored blazer and ‘Serge’ trousers. Meghan completed her look with a satin camisole by Deitas, court shoes and clutch bag, creating a chic and sophisticated aesthetic.

Meghan was joined on the 43-strong list by close friends Serena Williams, 36, pictured left at the US Open last week, and Amal Clooney, pictured right at an event in Los Angeles in June
She was joined in the 43-strong line-up by some of her closest friends including tennis ace Serena Williams, 36, and Amal Clooney, 40.
Fashion favourites like Donald Glover, 34, Sienna Miller, 36, and Rihanna, 30, also make an appearance.
On Rihanna, the magazine said: ‘The ultimate chameleon, Rihanna embraces color and outlandishness.
‘One day she’ll choose a ball gown, like the jaw-dropping yellow Guo Pei number she wore to the 2015 Met Gala, next masculine streetwear with cleavage, then a bejeweled Gucci balaclava. A true style heroine.’
Supermodel Bella Hadid, 21, pictured at the US Open yesterday, and actress Zoe Kravitz, 29, were pictured to represent millennial style influencers on the respected best dressed list
French First Lady Brigitte Macron, 64, pictured left in Copenhagen last week, also made the cut, as did designer Miuccia Prada, 69, pictured right at an event in Venice in 2014
Vanity Fair named Rihanna the ‘ultimate chameleon’ and highlighted this breathtaking yellow Guo Pei number that she wore to the Met Gala in 2015 as one of her standout looks
Men are represented by the likes of LeBron James, 33, and Jay-Z, 48, although his wife Beyoncé, 37, fails to make the cut.
Supermodel Bella Hadid, 21, and actress Zoe Kravitz, 29, are among the millennials selected.
Among the perhaps more unexpected inclusions are British artist David Hockney, 88, and Mrs Macron, who has divided opinion with her wardrobe.
‘[Mrs Macron’s] style is never fussy, the silhouette always clean, and her promotion of French designers is a no-brainer: chances are her skirt suit on any given day is her favorite, Louis Vuitton,’ states Vanity Fair. ‘A tres respectable go-to.’
Music mogul Jay-Z made the list but his superstar wife Beyonce (pictured on stage together in Manchester in June) was not given the honour
Basketball star LeBron James, pictured left in Ohio in July, and actor Donald Glover, pictured right in Los Angeles in May, were celebrated for their fresh take on men’s tailoring
Williams, who will compete in the semi-final of the US Open on Friday, was named alongside designers Miuccia Prada, 69, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, 32, in the ‘regal bearing’ category, celebrating those who carry power pieces with dignity’.
Meanwhile the Duchess of Sussex and Mrs Clooney are both classed as ‘Globalistas’, defined as ‘mastering international glamour—bold color, a head wrap!—shows sophistication that knows no borders’.
Mrs Clooney, who recently invited Harry and Meghan to holiday at the Lake Como home she shares with husband George, was described as an ‘exceptionally chic woman’ who is ‘beautifully turned out on every occasion’.
The Duchess of Sussex was recognised for her style evolution over the last year.
‘She’s the most daring of the royal fashion pack, and her signature boatneck cut and monochromatic color choices exhibit classic polish,’ the article notes.
The Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen were both named to the Vanity Fair International Best-Dressed List, the list’s previous iteration. Last year the Duke of Edinburgh received a special citation.
