She’s been sticking to a uniform of smart coats and trousers for her royal engagements, but today Meghan Markle did mix things up with a subtle change to her hair.
The bride-to-be usually wears wear her long, dark hair parted in the centre with very gentle waves.
But today she switched things up by moving her parting a little to the side and sporting bigger, more defined curls as she visited Birmingham with Prince Harry.
Celebrity hairdresser Jay Birmingham who owns an eponymous salon in the city she’s visiting said that the effect of the simple tweak shouldn’t be underestimated as it suits her face shape perfectly.
He told Femail: ‘Meghan has changed her parting from the middle to the side that frames her symmetrical face, shows off her cheekbones and diffuses her jaw line.

‘This is a great look on Meghan. It is a subtle change and holds focus on one side of her face, rather than the width of her whole face.
‘It creates a classic, elegant look and perfectly balances her stunning facial features.’
The former Suits star also switched her loose waves for bigger curls for a much more ‘princess’ style.
According to Jason, her stylist most likely achieved the look by using a wider barrel hair tongs.

‘She pulls off these bigger curls magnificently as they draw attention to her eyes and cheekbones when paired up with her side-sweeping parting,’ he said.
‘The wider curls minimise the length of her face keeping focus on her killer cheekbones and leaves weight in the hair to balance proportions of her face.’
The bride-to-be arrived in Birmingham this morning wearing a $298 navy Italian stadium-cloth wool coat by J Crew teamed with an unstructured £168 jumper from AllSaints and black cropped trousers by Alexander Wang.
While she looks suitably chic on royal engagements the former Suits star is sticking to a formula that guarantees her outfits don’t steal the show – especially as a committed feminist on International Women’s Day.
She accessorised with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Ghianda leather shoulder bag by Altuzarra, but chanelled the queen by ditching the long strap and carrying it by the handle.
