Meghan Markle dazzled as she stepped out in a white turtleneck dress for the first time since her devastating letter to her dad was exposed.
The Duchess of Sussex glowed in the custom-made Calvin Klein dress and matching $1,626 coat by Amanda Wakeley, as she was joined by her husband, Prince Harry, at the National History Museum in London.
The 37-year-old Duchess and her 34-year-old husband sat in the audience for a gala performance of The Wider Earth, a play produced by Australian company, Trish Wadley Productions and Brisbane’s Dead Puppet Society.
Their appearance comes just days after Meghan’s eloquent letter to her father, begging him to stop victimising her in interviews, was revealed.
In the letter, which was sent to Thomas Markle after her wedding in May last year, Meghan spoke about her heartbreak at her dad and half-sister, Samantha Markle, exploiting her relationship for their personal gain.
“On a daily basis you fixated and clicked on the lies they were writing about me, especially those manufactured by your other daughter, who I barely know,” Meghan wrote in the letter, which was seen by the Daily Mail.
“You watched me silently suffer at the hands of your vicious lies. I crumbled inside.”
The former Suits actress went on to say that her heart was crushed ’into a million pieces’ by her father’s public interviews.
“Not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this. Something I will never understand,” she wrote.
The royal couple attended the play in support of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.
Prince Harry is president of the QCT and Meghan is obviously a keen fan of the arts, having worked as an actress in Hollywood before she married Prince Harry in May last year.
“This is a really exciting creative collaboration — bringing together a hugely talented theatrical team and the Natural History Museum’s world-renowned scientific expertise,” The Natural History Museum’s Director of Engagement Clare Matterson said, according to news.com.au.
“It makes perfect sense for the museum to host this production, which is a gripping retelling of one of the most important voyages in scientific history.”
