Meghan Markle may be six months pregnant, but that didn’t stop her from flaunting her bare legs and stylish dark red toenail polish as she continued to flout royal style etiquette at the premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s Totem.
To watch the charity performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London with Prince Harry, 34, on Wednesday evening, the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex paired her $5,595 Roland Mouret gown with $398 strappy stiletto sandals by Stuart Weitzman that revealed both her pedicure and the scar running down her left foot.
It appeared as though the heel-loving mother-to-be was suffering from a bunion on her opposite foot, and it has been speculated that her mysterious scar is from bunion removal surgery.
Meghan dazzled in her glittering floor-length that featured a slit in the front that exposed her bare legs. Despite it being mid-January, she shunned hosiery and opted for delicate sandals instead of close-toed heels.
The picture of elegance, the royal accessorized the showstopping number with a bracelet that belonged to Princess Diana and a black satin clutch bag by go-to designer Givenchy.
It marks the third time in a week the royal has gone bare-legged at an official appearance, even though royal convention suggests women should wear hosiery in public.
While there is no formal style rule book, the Queen has made it clear that there is an unwritten protocol that dictates what royal women should wear — and when.
Earlier in the day, the Duchess of Sussex made a visit to the Mayhew Animal Home, wearing a beige H&M maternity dress and matching Armani coat.
But just a few hours later she attended a performance of Cirque du Soleil at the Royal Albert Hall, and she certainly brought the glam in the shape of this Roland Mouret dress, which she styled with a Givenchy satin clutch, Stuart Weitzman sandals and Princess Diana’s gold bracelet.
It’s no secret that the royal loves the label, having worn it on numerous occasions, but this has to be our favourite look by
The sequin embellished number is perfect for such a regal occasion with the maxi length. We love the split-front and boat neck design… a key feature for any Meghan look!
