Meghan Markle looks stylish in a £370 wrap dress by Canadian brand Club Monaco

The Duchess of Sussex changed into a £100 black woven jumpsuit by American retailer Everlane as she met female entrepreneurs at Cape Town’s Woodstock Exchange today. 

The elegant black one-piece, previously worn as she shot the cover for Vogue this summer, came after her radiant appearance in a £370 wrap dress by Canadian brand Club Monaco to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, on day three of the official tour of South Africa this morning.

Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, took baby Archie to the one of Cape Town’s oldest buildings and a national landmark, The Old Granary Building, to learn about the latest projects with the youth and social justice charity. 

Continuing her understated wardrobe, a sartorial theme she is understood to have opted for to avoid distracting from the issues highlighted during the tour, the Duchess donned another two-tone wrap dress – the ‘Dremah Silk Dress’ – which sold out within an hour of her stepping out.

And for her next stop, without Harry and Archie, Meghan opted for a business chic ensemble, keeping her black heels on and switching her studs a pair of for £172 earrings by GAS Bijoux, previously worn in Monaco in February.

The quick change came after she opted for a blue and white wrap dress by Club Monaco this morning, which featured short sleeves and a waist tie, with a black slip and black high heeled court shoes, wearing her hair  in a smooth centre parted  bun. 

Club Monaco is one of Meghan’s favourite brands, and links back to her time in Toronto filming Suits, with the Duchess seen sporting the label’s clothes on a number of occasions. 

Meghan previously wore a black Club Monaco Miguellina Dress while visiting South Melbourne Beach during the official Australia tour last year, which retailed at £237 and was quickly copied by H&M.

Meanwhile Archie made his first official appearance with parent Harry and Meghan,  wearing an adorable pair of blue dungarees, teamed with a white top and socks. 

The youngster was spotted gazing up at Harry, who looked smart in a navy suit and tie, along with a white shirt.

The Duke and Duchess, and little Archie, were greeted by the Archbishop Tutu and his daughter Thandeka as they arrived at the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation today. 

Founded in Cape Town in 2013, the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation contributes to the development of youth and leadership, facilitates discussions about social justice and common human purposes and makes the lessons of Archbishop Tutu accessible to new generations.  

Harry previously met with Archbishop Tutu in November 2015, when His Royal Highness presented him with the Insignia of an Honorary member of The Order of the Companions of Honour on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, in recognition of his services to UK communities and International Peace and Reconciliation. 

Harry and Meghan paused for a group photo with the Archbishop and Thandeka on the courtyard balcony, before proceeding inside for a private meeting where tea will be served.

The Duchess met with 12 inspiring female entrepreneurs, and gathered around a table for a discussion, moderated by Shirley, on their experiences. 

She learned how the ‘Ladies who Launch’ conversation series, that brings together a cross-section of female entrepreneurs, investors and corporate decision makers, is supporting and inspiring them. 

The goal is to ignite the opportunity through network building between aspiring – and inspiring – female entrepreneurs and successful role model women.

In March 2019, The Duchess of Sussex joined a panel discussion convened by The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust to mark International Women’s Day, featuring female business and charity leaders, the panellists discussed the obstacles that still affect female empowerment across the world today, and the positive opportunities that come when women are given wider access.

Before departing, Meghan paused for a group photo with the women in attendance.
