Watch: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive in Dusseldorf

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have landed in Germany to celebrate a ‘One Year To Go’ event as part of the countdown to the Invictus Games 2023.

The Duchess of Sussex continued her penchant for a monochrome look with a cream and beige outfit on day two of their short trip to Europe.

Meghan, 41, began her and Prince Harry’s week-long European visit at the One Young World Summit in Manchester in an all-red ensemble as she gave the keynote address to delegates in her first public speaking engagement since the couple stepped back as senior members of the Royal Family.

The duchess ‘glowed’ in a tonal tailored trouser look as the royal couple stepped out in the Düsseldorf sunshine.

The mother-of-two stepped out in a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg tailored trousers by American designer Brandon Maxwell in a pinkish beige shade, but it was her co-ordinating cream knitted top that really caught the attention of fans.

The off-white halter neck top by Los Angeles-based designer Anine Bing was reminiscent of the silk halter-neck Stella McCartney dress that Meghan wore to her wedding reception after her 2018 nuptials to Prince Harry.

Both styles gather around the neck and leave her toned arms and shoulders on display in a chic and sophisticated way, which was highlighted as Meghan greeted and took selfies with fans outside the city’s Town Hall.

It wasn’t long before fans took to social media to praise the look, and draw the connection between the outfit and her 2018 wedding reception dress.

“Stunning,” wrote one fan on Twitter, whilst another declared Meghan as having "the perfect arms."

“​​I love the top,” one user wrote on Instagram. “That shape really suits her.”

“The top is very cute and lady has the shoulders for it! [sic]” wrote another.

“Meghan is experimenting with silhouettes after being pregnant and new mom for a few years back to back – Good for her [sic].”

“One of her best outfits,” another user chimed in. “She looks so great when she wears clothes that fit and are for her body type.”

The Sussexes’ visit comes as the latest episode of Meghan’s new podcast Archetypes also dropped on Spotify on Tuesday. The third iteration of the Archewell-produced podcast hosted actor and director Mindy Kaling as the two women discussed the ‘stigma of being single’.

During their conversations, Meghan admitted being an ‘ugly duckling’ in high school and said she “never had anyone to sit with at lunch”.

“Look, maybe not conventional beauty as it…,” Meghan told her guest. “Now, maybe that would be seen as beautiful but massive frizzy curly hair and a huge gap in my teeth.

“I was the smart one,” she added. “Forever and ever and ever and ever.”

The duchess also revealed she always felt like a “little bit of a loner” before she “just sort of grew up.”

The couple are travelling without their children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, and have a private security detail throughout their short trip in Europe, whilst Prince Harry’s case against the Home Office’s decision to remove police protection is ongoing.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will return to Frogmore Cottage – their base in the UK – after their Dusseldorf visit and will be attending the WellChild Awards in London on Thursday.
