Happy Easter Everyone! We’re back with an updated post!
Today Meghan and Harry attended a number of Invictus Games The Hague events.
It has been an all-white weekend for the Duchess of Sussex. Meghan has worn white on Friday, Saturday, and today, Sunday. She and Harry took in some of the day’s competitions as the Invictus Games kicks into full swing in The Hague, Netherlands.
Meghan wore a white jacket from Brandon Maxwell, jeans, and her Manolo Blahnik BB pumps in the cognac suede colorway, a pair she first wore for her fortieth birthday last August.

In addition to watching competition, Harry and Meghan, well-known dog lovers, stooped down to pet some pups at the event. (Back home in California, the couple have dogs Guy and Pula.)
You may have noticed in the above photo that the moment was being filmed. It has been reported that Netflix is there with the couple filming the weekend for their future Invictus Games documentary.
Also seemingly at home are son Archie, who turns three on May 6, and Lili, who will turn one on June 4. But the Sussex kids aren’t far from their parents’ minds. Speaking to young journalists, Sophia (11) and Jay (12) from Vteam, about his wish for he and Meghan’s two kids.
Harry replied to the young reporters —
“To grow up in a better world. To grow up in a fairer world, a safer world, a more equal world. It’s not going to be easy, but I will never, ever, ever rest until I as a parent have at least tried to make the world a better place for them. Because it is our responsibility that the world is the way that it is now. I don’t think we should be bringing children into the world unless we are going to make that commitment to make it better for them.” He then added “We cannot steal your future.”
A hug with Harry concludes the interview.

Later Sunday, Meghan visited the British Embassy for readying hour. She wore a navy pinstripe jacket for the appearance.

And now… What Meghan wore!
We start with her white blazer look.
We do not have an ID on the jeans she wore. They look similar to some of the other skinny jeans she’s worn in the past. Check back for updates.
Her earrings are new and have not yet been ID’d along with two new rings. The rings are by Shiffon and the brand confirmed with us that these are from a “yet to be launched collection”. We are told that the rings are pavé diamond bands with a round diamond on one end. We look forward to the release of these rings!
UPDATE 4/19: We have confirmation that the earrings Meghan is wearing are by Sarah Hendler — a Los Angeles-based fine jewelry designer and estate/vintage jewelry curator. They are a bespoke version of the pavé spear tip dangle studs, $1,900. Meghan’s have a green emerald and blue sapphires.
Meghan’s pair are bespoke and according to Meghan’s Chronicles, they were created for her a few years ago and feature the designer’s signature spear tip dangle design with an emerald stone and pavé set blue sapphires on the spear.
We show similar styles below from the designer.
More from Sarah Hendler’s site —
“I named two of the collections — Shirley and Ethel — after my grandmothers, who were a huge influence on my early interest in jewelry,” Sarah explains. “The ‘spear’ collection is called Shirley because she was a woman always a little ahead of her time in terms of fashion, and I think the silhouette really represents a retro/vintage feel, but with a modern edginess. The ‘starburst ball’ collection is named for Ethel — because she loved a big cocktail ring! My version has elements of Victorian jewelry but with a new, bold scale and surprising enamel and pave touches.”
The Duchess wore a pendant necklace which we first saw while the couple visited Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, November 2021.
It is a crescent moon, star, galaxy hammered medallion in gold and crystal and hangs on a gold round snake chain. There are a number of shops that carry the pendant which we are told is from a popular wholesale manufacturer in LA. We suggest Oregon-based Child of Wild, $30-$40+ for the charm and chain or San Diego-based Lizzy James, $64. Both shops donate to a number of charities.
She also wore Diana’s gold Cartier Tank watch, her Cartier ‘Love’ bracelet, and the Bentley & Skinner diamond tennis bracelet, a gift from Prince Charles shortly before the couple’s in May 2018. She is also wearing a new diamond tennis bracelet (see our previous posts for more details).
UPDATE 4/18: For Meghan’s visit to the British Embassy today she wore a navy pinstriped blazer which we first thought was the Veronica Beard Beacon Dickey jacket in navy pinstripe, $650. Upon closer look at some images, we don’t think this is the jacket. Meghan’s jacket is a double breasted style with a breast pocket that includes a button (it may be a gold button). We apologize for any confusion. We haven’t found the exact one she’s wearing. We will update the post if the blazer is identified.
UPDATE 4/23: The blue button-down shirt has not yet been ID’d. From what we can see, it appears to be a blue oxford style button down collar shirt with a pocket.
Below are some options to match Meghan’s style — Everlane’s relaxed oxford shirt, $80 or J Crew Factory – Signature-fit button-up shirt in end-on-end cotton, $39.
Finally for the Invictus Games Foundation the Duchess wore the Floral Laser-Cut Mini Dress from Valentino, $6000.
She also carried the Khaite ‘Beatrice’ hobo, $1200. We’re thinking it is the brown suede version.
She may have also worn her black Manolo Blahnik BB pumps, $665. Originally we though that Meghan may have been wearing her Manolo Blahnik BB pumps in black, however upon closer look at some newly available photos, it appears she is wearing chocolate brown suede pumps.
We’re wondering if maybe they are from Gianvito Rossi, suede pumps in the Texas colorway, $725. A brand she has worn previously and quite often.
Another suggestion from Meghan’s Chronicles on Instagram is the Ralph Lauren ‘Celia’ goat suede pumps, $575, in brown. Also available here. The color sees to match better but as we know, the lighting in some of these photos can really throw off the color of some pieces.
Meghan wore the shoe in olive green for the christening of Prince Louis, July 2018 and again while the couple were in Tonga, October 2018.
Meghan also brought back a ring we haven’t seen in some time, the Pippa Small Herkimer ‘Almost’ ring, $3,265, a piece we first saw at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, November 2018. She also had on one other ring we aren’t able to clearly see. This appears to be a new ring.
UPDATE 4/21: She wore her Edge of Ember ‘Wave’ earrings in gold, $90.
Tonight wraps up a busy weekend and Meghan is expected to head back to California on Monday. We will have another post with recaps and updates later this week. Thanks to all those that messaged and suggested IDs for pieces. A big thanks to Stephen Lock of i-Images and James Whatling for fantastic photography once again!
We leave you with image from the games – one that might look a little familiar.
