Meghan Markle’s wardrobe is not only fashionable, it’s intentional, too.
The 38-year-old Duchess dressed to impress as she attended the Endeavour Fund Awards and the Mountbatten Festival of Music, dazzling photographers with her winning smile and impeccable sense of style. Markle also made several unannounced visits during her stay in London, wearing jewelry with hidden messages.
On Mar. 5, Markle made a secret visit to the National Theatre in London to view the Immersive Storytelling Studio. The Duchess was on hand to learn how the theatre is using virtual reality technology to bring stories to life, and viewed the “All Kinds of Limbo” exhibit, currently on display at the Tate Modern Art Museum.
Markle dressed in a $50 ivory organza blouse from Topshop that instantly sold out online, and a $1,191 jacquard skirt from Roland Mouret. The Duchess also wore a gold Love Pendant by designer Sophie Lis.
The $500 charm is inspired by “The Eternal Song,” a poem by 19th-century French poet Rosemonde Gerard. The inscription translates to read “I love you, more than yesterday, less than tomorrow,” and contains diamonds and rubies set in 22-carat gold vermeil.

Not only does the romantic charm symbolize eternal love, it benefits a worthy cause close to Markle’s heart. Proceeds from the necklace help support the Wild at Heart Foundation, which helps fund animal welfare projects all over the world, fitting for the Duchess who supports Mayhew, an animal welfare charity in London.
On Mar. 6, the Duchess made a surprise visit to the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham to celebrate International Women’s Day with the “women of our future.”
Markle greeted the 700 students of the East London school wearing a $485 belted fringe bouclé jacket by Me + Em, black trousers and a pair of two-tone leather pumps by Jennifer Chamandi ($1,000 CAD). The royal accessorized the look with a simple gold charm by Edge of Ember, an all-female brand based in London that specializes in ethically-produced jewelry.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the “Kismet Charm Necklace,” which means destiny or fate. The necklace was inspired by vintage Asian coins and features both the number 7 and a four-leaf clover for “double doses of good fortune.” According to Edge of Ember, the charm is meant to serve as “modern-day talismans,” which bring the wearer good fortune.
