Meghan Markle appeared to have forgotten to check the weather forecast before her trip to New York as she today stepped out in a fourth unseasonably warm coat in 73F (25C) heat in New York.
The Duchess of Sussex, 40, today joined her husband Prince Harry at the United Nations to meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as they kicked off the last day of their New York City tour, which will culminate in their appearance at Global Citizen Live.
She sported a £3080 ($4,214) tobacco-coloured cashmere Max Mara coat for the occasion which she paired with wide-legged pants and stiletto court shoes.
The royal kept her hair swept back into a smooth bun, while Harry sported a classic black suit apparently immune to the New York humidity.
It’s been an expensive trip Meghan, who yesterday sported a £4274.03 ($5,840) Loro Piana cashmere coat, matching £1231 ($1,685) wide-leg trousers, and red Manolo Blahnik pointed-toe pumps while visiting Harlem’s PS 123 Mahalia Jackson school, where 94 per cent of the pupil’s have free school meals.
On Thursday, she left The Carlyle hotel and headed to 50 United Nations Plaza dressed in another Max Mara coat, which she wore open but layered over a long-sleeve black turtleneck top. She added a £2447 ($3,350) Valextra bag to match.
It was a small outfit change from her trip with Prince Harry to One World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial in the morning morning, where she wore the same long-sleeve top with a heavy black coat on top.
The Duchess of Sussex who is living in her $14 million mansion in California, with Prince Harry and their two children Archie and Lilibet, appears to have forgotten how to dress for fall on the East Coast and stepped out in a heavy outfit better suited to winter.
Social media users were left baffled by Meghan’s wardrobe, with one writing: ‘Does she never learn how to wear clothes that suit the occasion and weather?
‘It’s a hot and humid day in New York and she is wearing a high collar and coat.’
The Sussexes left the luxury Carlyle Hotel in their cavalcade of gas-guzzling motor vehicles shortly before 11am New York Time on Saturday morning and headed to the UN building in Manhattan.
Their visit comes the same week as the 193-member world body’s annual gathering of leaders.
Now, this afternoon the Sussexes are expected to preach equity to a crowd that has paid between $240 to $268 for standard admission to Central Park’s Grand Lawn.
Of the tickets remaining Saturday morning Global VIP tickets start at $594 per ticket while Premium VIP tickets are $1174.
The Sussexes will join the star-studded set of artists, celebrities and world leaders for the concert which aims to raise awareness and money for a number of issues, including vaccine inequity, poverty and climate change.
Among the headline performers are Jennifer Lopez, Coldplay, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello and Lizzo.
Doors open for the concert at 2pm with the concert kicking off at 4pm through 10pm in Central Park. It is one of seven coordinated concerts across the world in Lagos, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Sydney as part of a 24-hour broadcast event.
