Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 12 best couple outfits, from sleek Armani in New York to Ralph Lauren for Archie’s first press photo, and Stella McCartney for their royal wedding reception
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have served major fashion inspiration over the years. The couple often coordinates their looks through classic pieces and chic colour palettes.
Here are just a few of our favourites …
The couple wore approachable clothing on their tour around Britain in the lead up to their wedding. Walking the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland, in February 2018, their smart and cosy outfits complemented each other.
Markle wore a plaid Burberry coat – which she later removed at the Scottish royal residence – a Wolford polo neck, Veronica Beard buttoned flare pants and Jimmy Choo bootees. Harry also transitioned from a grey overcoat to a blue blazer over his button down-sweater combo.
At the 2018 Commonwealth Day Service on March 12, 2018, in London, England, the couple coordinated their navy and white looks. While Harry wore a navy suit with white dress shirt and burgundy tie, Markle wore an Amanda Wakeley cream coat and navy dress. She paired this with a simple matching beret, Mulberry clutch and her trusty Manolo Blahnik heels.
At the Invictus Games, a sporting event founded by Harry for wounded servicemen and women, the couple looked effortlessly classy in coordinated blazers.
Harry donned a navy suit and grey tie while Markle wore the same Alexander McQueen blazer that she wore to the 2018 Endeavour Awards. Her fun and flirty floral A-line green dress by Self Portrait gave a fresh pop of colour to the couple’s look.
Harry wore a navy suit with a red and blue striped tie along with his military medals. The pair also wore remembrance poppies for the Australian and Kiwi soldiers’ lives lost in battle.
The couple looked dapper for Prince Louis’ christening in London in July 2018. At the Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace, Harry wore a navy suit and aqua tie, while Markle wore an all-over olive ensemble including a Ralph Lauren knee-length dress, Stephen Jones fascinator and matching gloves, clutch and pumps.
Markle and Harry went against tradition after the birth of their first child, Archie, by refusing to present him to the public in front of paparazzi after he was born on May 6, 2019. Instead, they introduced their swaddled baby more privately with limited press allowed into Windsor Castle a couple of days later.
The new parents looked tranquil with Markle in a double-breasted and button-adorned Grace Wales Bonner cream dress and Harry in a simple light grey suit.
Markle and Harry wore rich monochromatic looks for a visit to Canada House in London, in January 2020. Harry’s navy suit was complemented by a simple light blue tie. Markle stood out in shades of brown in a Massimo Dutti turtleneck sweater and satin midi skirt, a Reiss camel coat and velvet Jimmy Choo heels. The chocolate- and caramel-hued ensemble was full of texture and shine.
They stunned on their way to the Endeavour Fund Awards Ceremony in London, England, in March 2020.
During their final week as working royals – after sharing the news that they would be stepping back from the royal family – Markle and Harry had what are widely considered their most fashionable moments. A trio of coordinated looks packed a punch.
First, on their way to attend the 2020 Endeavor Fund Awards, paparazzi captured now-iconic photos of the couple walking in the rain. Markle wore a bright turquoise Victoria Beckham dress and Manolo Blahnik heels. The dress was simple, but the colour played off Harry’s complementary royal blue suit and tie.
Harry and Markle dazzled a couple of nights later in monochromatic red looks. At the 2020 Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall, Markle’s short-sleeve Safiyaa cape gown was paired with red Simone Rocha earrings, a Manolo Blahnik clutch and Stuart Weitzman shoes. Her sleek appearance was matched by Harry who showed out in a Royal Marines red and black uniform.
All eyes were on Harry and Markle for their final royal engagement. The couple continued to amp up their fashion in the last of their trio of jaw-dropping looks, showing out at the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey, on March 9, 2020.
Markle wore an asymmetrical cape dress, this one by Emilia Wickstead, in a gorgeous emerald shade. She wore a matching intricate William Chambers fascinator, Gabriela Hearst purse and Aquazzura heels. Harry’s blue-grey suit had a matching emerald lining and was paired with a sea foam green tie.
