It may still be August, but Meghan Markle is already dressing for fall.
The Duchess of Sussex was spotted out and about in Montecito, Calif. on Aug. 11 donning an early autumn fit. In photos published in Page Six, the 42-year-old is wearing a camel coat, cropped white skinny jeans, Chanel ballet flats and a blue cashmere Hermès scarf.
Royal style watchers have pegged the ex-royals coat as the same Max Mara Manuela Belted Camel Hair Coat she was photographed in last year. However, other sources claim it could be the brand's Goloso Coat or Rispoli Coat. We're hedging our bets on the Manuela because it's the only one still in stock — wishful thinking, perhaps!
