This weekend, Meghan Markle was seen with a friend in Montecito, California, with a friend having fun with somewhat shopping. The Duchess of Sussex was wearing a sleeveless and strapless green Malia Mills jumpsuit that ended slightly below her knees, with a cardigan slung over her shoulders in a rather lighter shade of the identical olive green. She topped it with a wide-brimmed Panama hat from Cuyana, and carried a white canvas bag on a leather strap. She accessorized with sunglasses and sandals, and had her hair in an extended braid.
Meghan and her friend were perusing the house goods section at gourmet food boutique Pierre La Fond before heading to nearby Santa Barbara for lunch.
The Duchess is back in California after an prolonged trip to the U.K. last month following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. She and Prince Harry were a very important a part of the Queen’s state funeral, and in addition they hung out circulating amongst the well-wishers who gathered around Windsor Castle after news of the Queen’s death. They were seen in company with Kate Middleton and Prince William, the brand new Princess and Prince of Wales.

The Waleses will likely be heading to the U.S. themselves soon, arriving in Boston in December of this yr. It is going to be their first official visit to the country since 2014, and so they’ll be attending the second annual Earthshot Prize awards. They were meant to attend the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit in September, but needed to delay for his or her mourning period.
“During this time of grief, I take great comfort in your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to The Earthshot Prize and what we are attempting to attain,” William said in a video screened on the summit. “Protecting the environment was a cause near my grandmother’s heart, and I do know she would have been delighted to listen to about this event and the support you might be all giving our Earthshot Finalists—the subsequent generation of environmental pioneers.”
Kate is reportedly hoping that she and William can connect with Harry and Meghan again while visiting, because the latter couple can even be visiting the east coast around the identical time.
