Meghan Markle paired a slash neck top from a Haiti-born American designer with vegan leather trousers to discuss ‘systematic racism’ yesterday.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, joined Prince Harry, 36, for a wide-ranging interview from their £11million California mansion yesterday, in which they spoke about discrimination faced by black people and talked about the Black Lives Matter movement.
Meghan, who is known for her love of designer brands and rarely wears the same outfits twice, looked elegant in a tonal brown ensemble for the occasion.
She made sure to keep her outfit on message, opting for a £290 slash-neck coffee coloured top from Haiti-born, New York-raised designer Victor Glemaud and a pair of brown vegan leather trousers from Canadian boutique Aritzia.

The Duchess swept her hair from her face into a slicked back bun and let her outfit do the talking during the video call.
She commanded attention to her eyes with sleek eyeliner, while keeping the rest of her make-up nude to emphasise her natural features.
The royal appeared elegant in the tonal ensemble and opted to wear independent designer Glemaud for the first time for the occasion.
It is a new brand for Meghan, who tends to favour larger labels like Givenchy and Victoria Beckham.

The brand was launched in 2006 and online is described as focusing on ‘statement knitwear, designed for all people, genders, races, sizes and personalities, marrying comfort and style’.
The Haiti-born designer already has a host of celebrity fans including Florence Pugh and Hailey Baldwin.
The Duchess paired the trendy top with a set of vegan leather trousers from Canadian brand Aritiza, a brand she has worn several times in the past.
It is believed she has the trendy trousers in several colours, having donned a similar pair of trousers in black while appearing on America’s Got Talent last week.
During the interview yesterday, Meghan praised Black Lives Matter protests in America after the death of George Floyd as ‘beautiful’ – but said this only applied to ‘peaceful protest’ and admitted many people found them ‘inflammatory’.

Speaking on Zoom to the Evening Standard, Harry also weighed in on Diversity’s controversial BLM dance routine on Britain’s Got Talent and said he was ‘surprised’ by the negative comments it had received.
In a separate article for the newspaper, the couple said: ‘As long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of colour who do not start their lives with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers. And for as long as that continues, untapped potential will never get to be realised.’
The interview is the latest in a long series of political comments by the couple, including last week when Harry intervened in the US election by urging voters to ‘reject hate speech’.
The comments – which broke royal protocol – were widely interpreted as a call to vote out Donald Trump.
They prompted Buckingham Palace to immediately distance themselves from Harry by noting he was ‘not working member of the Royal Family’.
