Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended the private viewing of the new Nelson Mandela Hall at London’s Southbank Center. The fashion expert say that Duchess of Sussex gives a nod to her pre-royal life by opting a sleeveless trench coat-style dress in pale pink colour, which was designed by the Canadian fashion house, Nonie.
Prior to wedding Prince Harry, Ms Markle was living and working in Canada for a couple of years, in Toronto, she was also filming for “Suits.” In fact, the Duchess of Meghan has a special place for Canada in her heart that the country was even mentioned in her information on the royal family’s website. “She feels very connected to Canada, as it became a second home to her,” it read.
On Tuesday, Meghan gave a nod to her pre-royal life by wearing the clothes created by Nonie, a Canadian designer. Its founder Nina Kharey spoke with People after she saw Markle in her brand’s creation.
“Seeing Meghan Markle wear the Nonie Trench Dress today with such elegance and grace is beyond exciting! Her continuous support of Canadian brands is remarkable, and it is a true honor to be the first Canadian-based ready-to-wear designer she has worn since her wedding earlier this year,”
she thanked Markle.
The fashion experts noted that Markle’s trench coat-style dress was a bold choice for the actress. Earlier, she has not been spotted in this kind of attire in the past but Nonie dress coat was reminiscent of the 1960s style of Jackie Kennedy, icon style and the first lady.
Duchess Meghan’s coat dresses are typically worn by other members of the royal family, and Kate Middleton has been spotted in this kind of attire on multiple occasions. The Duchess of Cambridge usually wears Alexander McQueen.
