Fortified fencing, barbed wire and concrete barricades have gone up around the courthouse and police stations in Minneapolis in preparation for the landmark murder trial…
It’s safe to say Meghan Markle’s style is always on point (I mean, how does she always look so effortless and put together?!), but now that she’s marrying into the royal family, there definitely is more of a spotlight on her fashion choices. And since Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November, it seems that she is particularly fond of one color: green.
Twitter user @MeghansMirror pointed out that Markle has worn the color multiple times — often pairing it with neutrals — when representing the Royal Family on official business.

Here’s an investigation into all the times she’s worn green on official royal duty and what it possibly could mean.
In November 2017, Markle wore a green dress by the label P.A.R.O.S.H. (albeit underneath a white belted coat by Canadian brand Line the Label) during the couple’s engagement photo call, accessorizing the look with a pair of neutral Aquazzura heels. After the shoot, she and Harry sat down for their first joint interview, in which you can see the dress more clearly.
Fast-forward to January 2018, and Markle was spotted with a forest-green DeMellier London top-handle bag (which, surprisingly, is still available) during her first official visit to Wales. The bag really stood out against her all-black ensemble, and it marked the second time she (publicly) wore the same shade of green.
Just one month later, Markle wore the color yet again. This time, she opted for a tartan blue-and-green Burberry wool coat and paired it with a crossbody Strathberry bag during a visit to Edinburgh, Scotland, with her fiancé. She even matched the pattern and color scheme of her coat to this adorable mini horse and this man’s kilt. Talk about coordination!
Then, in March, she was photographed in Ireland wearing – yep, you guessed it — a dark green Greta Constantine skirt with a flounce hem, pairing it mostly with neutrals, including a cream Victoria Beckham sweater, a grey Mackage overcoat, and a brown top-handle bag by Charlotte Elizabeth.
Next, Markle attended the U.K. Team Trials for the Invictus Games at the University of Bath in April wearing a khaki-green Aritzia trench coat over black jeans and a shirt.
Here’s another pic of the (still-available!) coat:
The most recent (and arguably the most gorgeous) green look Markle wore was on April 21, when she was photographed in a pleated floral Self-Portrait dress with a black Alexander McQueen blazer, Manolo Blahnik pumps, and a Roland Mouret shoulder bag. She wore the look while attending the Invictus Games reception in London with Harry.
Although not ALL of her recent outfits feature the color green (take this pinstriped look, for instance), she’s definitely worn it enough times that it’s probably intentional. According to royal expert Rob Shuter, wearing green is a strategic move for the soon-to-be-royal.
“Second to blue, green is the most popular shade for women in Britain,” he said in an interview with Yahoo!. It’s also the color of the British suffrage movement, so the hue makes sense given that Markle is an advocate of women’s rights.
Kate Middleton made waves in a green dress at February’s BAFTA awards, where most attendees opted to wear black in support of the #TimesUp movement. This might have been Middleton’s subtle way of showing support for women at the event, and it seems like Markle might be taking up the cause by featuring the color in her wardrobe as of late.
Honestly, I can’t wait for her to continue the green trend, because the color complements her like none other.
