The 3 Questions Meghan Markle Asked Michelle Obama About Motherhood

The 3 Questions Meghan Markle Asked Michelle Obama About Motherhood

Yesterday British Vogue announced very exciting news: None other than Meghan Markle is the guest editor of the famed glossy’s September issue. Today, the magazine revealed arguably the most enlightening part of the issue, the Duchess of Sussex’s brilliant interview with Michelle Obama. Can you think of a more formidable duo?

Markle asked Obama only six questions, so you know she put careful consideration into each and every one. Three of the questions centered on motherhood, which shouldn’t be surprising given that Markle is a new mom to baby Archie, and Obama knows a thing or two about raising children in the spotlight. Naturally, Obama’s answers were incredibly insightful. “Motherhood has taught me that, most of the time, my job is to give them the space to explore and develop into the people they want to be,” Obama responded. “Not who I want them to be or who I … Read the rest

Meghan Markle's 4 Favorite Pieces of Jewelry, Hands Down

Meghan Markle's 4 Favorite Pieces of Jewelry, Hands Down

When you have a stunner of a royal engagement ring—a newly updated one, no less—it may be hard for other pieces to compete, but that doesn’t stop Meghan Markle from wearing the prettiest jewelry pieces imaginable. Obviously, the engagement ring that Prince Harry crafted using a diamond from Princess Diana’s collection is her most cherished everyday piece, but she regularly mixes it up with beautiful jewelry that is also worth highlighting.

For her recent appearance at this year’s Wimbledon, for instance, Markle paid a subtle but very sweet tribute to her first-born child, baby Archie. She wore the Verse Fine Jewelry Love Letters Necklace ($590) with the letter A, and everyone let out a collective awww. For Archie’s christening, she re-wore the Galanterie de Cartier Earrings that she wore on her wedding day in May 2018. How cute is that? Scroll down to see and shop her favorite … Read the rest

This Is What Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Wear When They Have the Day Off

This Is What Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Wear When They Have the Day Off

We’re used to seeing Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle in carefully styled looks for their numerous public appearances, but it’s rare that we get a glimpse at what they wear during their off-duty time. (It’s always intriguing to see what the royal family chooses to wear when they’re not tied to a specific dress code, as they often are.)

Today in Wokingham, England, the sisters-in-law attended a charity polo match (The King Power Royal Charity Polo Day, to be exact) that Princes William and Harry were playing in. Markle and Middleton attended the match with their kids (yes, including baby Archie) in breezy summer dresses. Markle’s was a simple, oversize, caftan-style army-green dress which she paired with oversize aviator sunglasses. Middleton’s look wasn’t too far from what she typically wears for her more casual appearances: a pink short-sleeve midi dress, crossbody bag, and espadrilles. In conclusion, they could be mistaken … Read the rest

Dior Dresses and Fancy Headbands: Inside Archie's Royal Christening

It’s the moment we’ve been all been waiting for: The official pics from Archie’s royal Christening are here, and they’re even cuter than we could’ve imagined.

The other is a more intimate snapshot of the couple and Archie together in the Rose Garden … Read the rest

You'll Rarely See Meghan Markle in Flats, But She Just Wore the Prettiest Pair

You'll Rarely See Meghan Markle in Flats, But She Just Wore the Prettiest Pair

Meghan Markle’s love for heels seems to know no limits. (Well, Lady Gaga–level heights are probably a limit for her, but you know what we mean.) Even toward the end of her pregnancy, Markle stayed dedicated to her towering stilettos (no kitten heels or block heels for her). But given that the occasion that she made a surprise appearance at over the weekend was a baseball game, she left her usual heels at home and swapped them for a pretty pair of ballet flats.

Markle and Prince Harry stepped out for only their third joint appearance since the birth of baby Archie. The occasion was game one of the London Series between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox at London Stadium on Saturday. Markle wore a belted black Stella McCartney minidress, which would’ve come across as a bit formal with heels, but with black flats, … Read the rest

What’s that you say? You want more stories about royals? Well, ask and you shall receive. While Meghan Markle has been shying away from press while on maternity leave—and rightfully so—I’ve been chomping at the bit to see some great royal outfits. Kate Middleton has definitely been delivering lately, but I’ve also taken the opportunity to walk down memory lane. I’ve broken down Princess Grace’s favorite wardrobe basics and Princess Diana’s best vacation looks, and now I decided to set off to discover what royals consistently wear while traveling to NYC.

Princess Charlene of Monaco and Meghan Markle, for instance, are on the same page about packing their best black slouchy boots for NYC. (Markle memorably wore hers to celebrate her highly publicized baby shower in New York.) Princess Diana and Queen Silvia of Sweden both were photographed in New York wearing cap-toe pumps, while black skinny jeans have … Read the rest

Meghan Markle Secretly Updated Her Engagement Ring—See the Before and After

Royal fans have been obsessed with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new baby son, Archie, anxiously awaiting more glimpses of the littlest ;member of the family. But in the midst of all the baby news, everyone seemingly missed a major change to Markle’s most important piece of everyday jewelry: her engagement ring.

As eagle-eyed reporters pointed out, Markle quietly debuted a newly updated engagement ring at the Trooping the Colour event earlier this month. Her old ring featured a solid yellow gold band, while the new ring boasts a thinner pavé band comprised of dozens of tiny diamonds. How chic is that? Of course, she kept the three main diamonds, as they hold special significance. Prince Harry sourced the center one in Botswana, and the two smaller diamonds on either side are from Princess Diana‘s personal collection.

All this to say, duchesses, princesses, and queens know a thing or two about putting together an impeccable airport outfit.

Non-royals don’t typically need to be dressed to greet diplomats, dignitaries, and dozens of flashing cameras upon landing, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t all put some royal airport outfit inspo to good use. Ahead, we’ve identified the airport outfit pieces everyone from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle to Queen Letizia wears when they’re boarding a flight.
