The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise solo visit to King’s College London for a discussion with a group of students and leaders as a part of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
The ACU acknowledged the duchess in a tweet: “Today we brought together university leaders, academics & #students to discuss how we can build a better world through #highered. We were honoured to be joined by HRH The Duchess of Sussex,” the ACU tweeted.
The Duchess of Sussex who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry looked relaxed and attentive during discussions on topics like human trafficking, gender equality and modern slavery as well as peace and reconciliation and climate change. Meghan even jotted down notes during the academic round table and was no doubt especially excited about learning about initiatives tackling the issue of the education of women and girls as the duchess recently announced two ACU Gender Grants for the University of the South Pacific in October.
Kensignton Palace released a second image of Meghan wearing a coat draped on her shoulders. The jacket was identified as an Artizia wool and cashmere coat in the shade Petale. The long cocoon coat is by Wilfred for Artizia. The Wilfred brand aims for a refined yet undone look with elements of romance. Meghan has long favored the Canadian label and has worn Artizia coats, belts and even funnel neck sweaters by the brand.
For a simple but classic t-shirt look, the duchess opted for the Hugo Boss Filonka short sleeve sweater in black.
The crew neck knit sweater features superfine wool and a ribbed trim. The sweater is currently available in select sizes at Saks Fifth Avenue and at Bloomingdales. The knit top is also available at Nordstrom in the pink shade.
Meghan also wore her Solange Love ring on her middle finger. She recently debuted the ring on a visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen.
It’s our guess that Meghan may have been wearing a skirt (possibly pleated or pencil) with her Hugo Boss shirt as it appears her bare leg was visible under the table during the discussion panel.
