Royal rebel: Duchess Meghan dazzles in royal blue as she breaks one of the Queen’s fashion rules

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is making headlines again for another stunning outfit choice.

The Duchess was photographed at the 100 Days to Peace gala concert held at Central Hall, London in a bespoke royal blue dress by designer Jason Wu.

The chic midi dress featured a high neck and a small leg slit accentuating Duchess Meghan in all the right places. Though the dress is known to break one of the Queen’s style rules – showing the shoulders.

As per the “royal rule book”, women who belong to the royal family cannot wear off-shoulder pieces or other styles that can be labelled as revealing.

But Duchess Meghan is known to rebel against the monarch, especially when it comes to her fashion choices. This isn’t the first time Meghan has turned to Jason Wu for an important event.

In February, the Duchess wore a sophisticated navy dress for the annual Royal Forum event.

Her Aquazzura heels, which cost a cool $1,100, paired perfectly with her outfit. With the open back and sky-high stiletto, the royal added a touch of bling to her outfit as the shoes were jewel-encrusted.

Finishing it off with an understated black Dior clutch and her Birk earrings which set her back $16,000, the Duchess made sure that all eyes were on her during the event.

The concert marks the centenary of the last 100 days of WWI hostilities.

It’s held in aid of three charities – Help for Heroes, Combat Stress, and Heads Together.

Heads Together is a campaign focused on mental health and are led by The Royal Foundation, in partnership with YoungMinds and seven other charities.

The gala was treated to a performance by world-famous composer Sir Karl Jenkins, as he conducted his internationally acclaimed The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.

Retired senior British Army Officer and member of the House of Lords greeted the couple as they arrived.

Beforehand, he said: “Tragically, the First World War did not turn out to be ‘the war to end war’ but then, as now, by marking the centenary of the end of the last 100 days of hostilities with this commemorative concert, we can hope and pray for a better future.

“Part of that better future is helping those who have been affected by war and conflict.”
