Prince Harry plays polo several times every summer to raise money for charity, and today, May 6, Meghan Markle came out to watch him play.
Harry was playing in the annual Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park in Ascot, raising money for Sentebale and WellChild, and Meghan watched from the royal box.
This is a big deal; the royals know they are going to be photographed, so Meghan coming out to this is definitely a clear sign from Harry and Meghan that they are ready to go public with their relationship (not that it hasn’t been public knowledge for over six months now, but they’re ready to attend public events together).
From the Telegraph:
“If ever proof was needed that Miss Markle is here to stay, then her decision to attend the polo, a sport so dear to the heart of Prince Harry, is it.
“This was the first time that Prince Harry and Miss Markle have been present at a public event together, the couple having previously been keen to avoid the cameras.
“Miss Markle’s appearance in the Royal box at Coworth Park, near Ascot in Berkshire, will inevitably spark further and excited speculation that the couple will one day wed – and possibly soon.”
You can see more photos at the Daily Mail.
People Mag says her shoes are Aquazurra, although I’ve not seen a photo of them, and that her bracelet, which I haven’t seen a good photo of, is from The Shoebox Project.
Meghan also carried the cutest polka dot clutch which I cannot find an id for, sadly.
I’m not a fan of the high-low hem trend or lots of buttons, but overall I think this is a nice polo look with the navy dress and white blazer, and that clutch is awesome.
Since this is the first time I’m covering Meghan’s fashion on this blog, I want to kick it off by saying that while I constantly call out Kate over on my other blog for the price of her clothing, I will not do that here. I included the price of the pieces Meghan wore because it’s more data on the pieces Meghan wore, but it’s Meghan’s money and she can do what she wants with it.
