Meghan Markle: That political message slipped into her latest look

The Duchess of Sussex is engaged even in her clothing. In an interview at the beginning of Black Month History, Meghan Markle wore an outfit that spoke volumes.

In an interview with her husband Prince Harry at the Evening Standard on Thursday, October 1, Meghan Markle gave a brief update on their son Archie during a video conference with her husband Prince Harry.

But after revealing that he is very “busy” and “keeps them on the edge of their seats”, the Duchess of Sussex quickly turned to a more serious subject: racism.

More than four months after the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black American who died below the knee of a white policeman in Minneapolis, the former Suits actress made a point of speaking out at the start of “Black Month History” in Britain.

The couple wants to combat “structural racism”. A struggle that also involves looks. The asymmetrical outfit Meghan Markle wore for this important interview was not a matter of taste.

During this interview, the woman who expressed her wish to vote for the presidential election was wearing a creation by Victor Glemaud, a black designer from Haiti, says Figaro.

A couturier who has already seduced many personalities such as the singers Selena Gomez or Mary J. Blige, but it is the message that counts above all. For Meghan Markle, wearing this long-sleeved top in brown merino wool from the Haitian designer’s autumn-winter 2020 collection is anything but random.

Two days before the interview, Victor Glemaud participated in the launch of a network of black designers called In the Blk. A beautiful action totally in adequacy with the daughter of Doria Ragland and her husband.

Defending equal opportunities

“As long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of color who will not start life with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers.

And as long as this continues, the untapped potential will never be realized,” denounced the Sussex Black Lives Matter movement in a text published in Evening Standard.
