The Duchess of Sussex arrived on London’s South Bank today for the third engagement she’s carried out so far this year on behalf of her four new patronages. Today saw her tour the venue and meet staff and crew at the National Theatre, a fitting organization for Meghan to spearhead given her former acting career.
Part of the day’s engagement highlighted the National Theatre’s partnership with Edith Neville Primary School for which students were able to see a production of War Horse and then put on their own show – the initiative was meant to raise children’s awareness of World War I as part of 2018’s centenary ceremonies.
Meghan also met with trainees participating in the National Theatre’s apprenticeship program, which launched in 2011.
Finally, the Duchess watched a line run from Shakespeare’s Pericles.
Meghan debuted a new blush pink dress and blazer from Brandon Maxwell, a brand she’s worn on a few occasions over the past year. The look was paired with Aquazzura heels and a Carolina Herrera clutch. I loved this ballerina-esque ensemble and it was a nice change of pace from the uniform Meghan occasionally leans into of long open coats and dark, loosely-cut garments in the winter.
We’ll next see Meghan tomorrow for another solo engagement with the Association of Commonwealth Universities and then again on Friday when she and the Duke of Sussex spend the day in Bristol.
