Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex Head-to-Toe Burgundy Suit Look Is Driving Trends, According to Lyst

When all else fails, go monochrome. It’s an easy way to turn heads and look chic in outfit, whether it’s causal or not. Last week, Meghan Markle got that memo. The Duchess of Sussex made a stop at a local Harlem school in New York, alongside Prince Harry, wearing a head-to-toe burgundy suiting ensemble.

Markle layered a burgundy Loro Piana jacket over a sleek blouse and coordinating high-rise trousers by the sustainable, European brand. To complete the look, she went with matching Manolo Blahnik BB pumps, also in burgundy, as well a clutch from Valextra.

The outfit has since spiked searches for fashion fans. According to data from Lyst, “burgundy” quickly became a popular keyword, while searches for the designer, Loro Piana, increased 66% week-on-week.

Loro Piana is committed to advancing its environmental sustainability strategy and uses solar energy in its facilities, for instance. The made-in-Italy cashmere jacket Markle wore last week retails for $5,840 at Neiman Marcus.

Meanwhile, the Valextra bag she chose caused a 134% boost in online searches for the Italian brand.

Mahalia Jackson School students in Harlem, New York City received a visit from two special guests on Friday morning.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan paid a visit to the central Harlem elementary school for an outdoor reading event where Meghan read from her debut children’s book, The Bench. The Sussexes were joined by New York City Public Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter for the visit, meant to highlight the school’s initiatives and to promote early literacy in young students. Harry and Meghan’s visit to Harlem comes after the start of their three-day trip to New York City which began with a visit with Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family and Governor Kathy Hochul at the One World Observatory.

Video clips circulating from the pair’s school visit showed Meghan arriving in a maroon-hued oversized jacket and matching wide leg trousers by Loro Piana, while Prince Harry kept it casual in a gray sweater and khaki slacks. The duchess was photographed stepping out in the fall appropriate look ahead of entering the school’s grounds.

The duke even adorable sat cross-legged on the ground with students while Meghan read aloud, attentively listening along with the schoolchildren.

“I wrote this when we just had our little boy, and I haven’t read it to any other kids but you!” she told the second grade school children as she sat down to read from the book.

The Sussexes also viewed a brand new mural painted by 4th and 5th grade students which featured pink paper hearts and personal stories and dedications to the couple written on them, which Meghan carefully looked through.

The couple also left a donation of vegetable and herb planters for the school, in response to a need for easier access to fresh and healthy food in the community. The pair also partnered with Proctor & Gamble to stock P.S. 123’s pantry with free-of-cost products to help families take care of their personal health and hygiene and maintain clean and healthy homes. Meghan also personally donated reading nooks to Graham Windham non-profit locations across New York City to support families’ access to books and encourage at home reading.

Meghan and Harry’s Harlem visit also comes ahead of their anticipated appearance at Saturday’s Global Citizen Live event, where they’ll be joined by a number of high profile celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Doja Cat, and more to fundraise for global vaccine equity.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex called for vaccine equity during an appearance at the Global Citizen Live concert in New York City.

The 24-hour event, which took place on the Great Lawn in Central Park on Saturday, featured performances from Ed Sheeran, Lizzo and Billie Eilish.

It aimed to raise awareness of the climate crisis, vaccine inequality and poverty.

Taking to the stage, Prince Harry urged pharmaceutical companies to waive their intellectual property rights on Covid-19 vaccines, describing the pandemic as a “human rights crisis”.

“We’re battling more than the virus alone, this is a battle of misinformation, bureaucracy, lack of transparency and lack of access and, above all, this is a human rights crisis,” he said.

Harry and Meghan said they had spoken with experts about the pandemic and the issue of vaccine equity.

“They said many countries are ready to produce vaccines at home yet they aren’t allowed to because ultra-wealthy pharmaceutical companies are not sharing the recipes to make them,” Harry began.

He said these countries have the “means, the ability and the workers” to manufacture vaccines, but are still waiting for vaccine intellectual property rights to be waived.

“By the way, many of these vaccines were publicly funded. They are your vaccines, you paid for them,” he added.

Meghan told the crowd that “every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine”.

She said it was “wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to just 10 wealthy nations so far and not everyone else”.

“While in this country and many others you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions around the world cannot.

“These experts shared that how the vaccine is distributed, and who it’s distributed to, should be left to independent international organisations who know exactly where the doses are most needed.

“Just think about the millions of vaccines that have been discarded this year. That’s like throwing away life vests, when those around you are drowning,” she said.

The couple arrived in New York on Thursday, when they visited the One World Trade Center. It marked their first public appearance since the birth of their daughter Lilibet in June.

Before their appearance at the Global Citizen Live concert, Meghan and Harry met with Amina Mohammed, deputy secretary-general of the UN.
