Meghan Markle’s “Revenge” Wardrobe For Her Final Royal Engagements Were “Carefully Planned”

The couple proved they knew how to gain the attention of the world

Ever since we were first introduced to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as a couple, the two have found a knack for creating the most “picture perfect” moments – whether that be with a sly hold of each other’s hands or a side glance caught in an instant, the world was has been seemingly gripped by the pair. 

For those “farewell engagements”, the Duchess of Sussex packed her wardrobe full of bold colours, sleek designs and notable designers – all intentionally so, reportedly to divert the attention away from their decision to move to Los Angeles. 

But, while all eyes were on the royal couple amid their step down as senior members of The Firm – there was one ‘revenge’ moment that the couple carefully planned, according to new biography Finding Freedom

Meghan’s sleek blue Victoria Beckham dress at the Endeavour Fund Awards, where she and Harry were famously photographed sharing an umbrella in the rain, was used to divert attention away from the couple’s decision to move to Los Angeles. 

“They served as a showstopping reminder of their ability to command the world’s attention,”  authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote. “Earlier in the day Daniel Martin (who, when planning all her looks for the week, had joked, ‘Go out with a bang!’) had done her makeup and George Northwood her hair.”

“The sparkling rain in the frame was pure coincidence, but the confident walk into Mansion House venue and Meghan’s blue midi dress by Victoria Beckham were carefully planned,” the authors added. 

It also wasn’t the only one. 

In the days following, Meghan’s wardrobe would catch the attention of royal fans everywhere, making sure to pay homage to the nation with designers like Beckham and Stella McCartney. 

Vanity Fair even called her wardrobe at the time a “masterclass in revenge dressing”, comparing her looks to Princess Diana’s infamous little black dress the night Prince Charles did his bombshell interview about Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
