Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle looked elegant in black as she made a rare post-baby outing this weekend.The 37-year-old- who gave birth to her son Archie on May 6 – dressed in head-to-toe blac to accompany her husband Prince Harry to the Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees baseball game at the London Stadium in support of the Invictus Games Foundation. She teamed the A-line dress with a pair of pointy flats from designer Aquazzura, costing £581. The dress, which is from British fashion designer Stella McCartney, fell just above her knees, showing off her leg, and the gold buckle detail accentuated her post-baby figure.
It cost £815, but fans will have to wait for the dress to come back in stock, as it’s now sold out.
Opting for a more natural look, Meghan kept her make-up light with a nude lip. She wore her brunette locks in a soft wave.
Meanwhile, Harry was dressed down, proudly wearing his Invictus Games Polo Shirt.
As an American, Major League Basketball is said to have a special appeal to Meghan, and the new mum clearly appeared to be having a good time, as she supported her husband and his charity.
Red Soxs Mookie Betts reportedly told the Duchess that they are distant relatives. According to The Boston Globe, their ancestors are from the same part of Alabama.
Red Sox’s Mookie Betts reportedly told the Duchess that they are distant relatives. According to The Boston Globe, their ancestors are from the same part of Alabama.
Mookie began telling Meghan about his family, saying: “My great, great, great….” before the Duchess broke in jokingly, adding: “Great, great, great…”
Mookie then laughed: “We’re family somehow!”
Ever the joker, Harry joined in and asked: “Does anyone else here want to claim to be family?”
The couple then met with the Yankees team, who gifted them an adorable personalised baseball jersey for baby Archie.
The outing is Meghan’s second official public appearance since she and Harry welcomed their son last month.
She made her return to Trooping The Colour – where she joined Harry, as well as Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children – to mark the queen’s 93rd birthday.
It’s since been reported that the Queen is planning to throw Meghan a party at her estate in Scotland to celebrate the Duchess’ 38th birthday.
“The Queen and Prince Philip adore the couple and, of course, their new great-grandson Archie, and they have invited them to Balmoral for a few days,” a source recently told The Sun.
“It is a testament to Meghan that she has been given this invite. It’s a huge honour.”
The Queen has reportedly asked the royal catering team to make Meghan a special cake to celebrate her big day, and it’s also been reported that that Sussex family will have their very own wing in Balmoral estate – which is rumoured to be the Queen’s favourite.
“It’s no secret Balmoral is Her Majesty’s favourite home, and that’s why this invite is so special and heartfelt,’ the source added.
Who is Meghan Markle?
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
