Yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex, Royal patron of the National Theatre, visited the Immersive Storytelling Studio in London.
The studio, which is a part of the National Theatre, is using emerging technology like Virtual Reality to develop new forms of emotive storytelling. The goal of this method is to “enable us to better connect and empathise with each other as people, regardless of race, age or nationality”.
Below, The Duchess speaks with Nubiya Brandon about her hologram and the project. Nubiya is featured in the National’s exhibition ‘All Kinds of Limbo’, which is currently being presented at the Tate Modern.
The two seem to be having a good laugh during their discussion.

Next, Meghan views a display booth at the studio.
Inside the booth, Meghan learns more from one of the studio members.
While visiting Stanford University recently, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a virtual reality presentation that allows the user to experience life through another person’s point of view.
Meghan wore white for her visit to the studio.
Meghan’s blouse is the Topshop Organza Sleeve Button Through Blouse in Ivory, $55 (no longer available).
Her skirt is by UK based designer, Roland Mouret. It is the ‘Moka’ skirt in white, $995.
The skirt is also available in black.
Meghan’s bag is the Loewe small ‘Postal’ bag in black leather, $2250.
The bag has structured frame and a retro-inspired top handle with soft gusset sides that “evokes the form of a postcard through its rectangular dimensions and embossed stamp-like Anagram in the top right-hand corner”
The Duchess had on a new pendant today, the Sophie Lis ‘Love Pendant’, £280 ($364 USD at today’s exchange rate).
This pendant is inspired by an extract taken from the poem “The Eternal Song” by 19th Century French poet Rosemonde Gerard.
Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage,
Aujourd’hui plus qu’hier et bien moins que demain
For, you see, each day I love you more,
today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow
The pendant symbolizes eternal love and reflects the poem with a “+” in diamonds and a “–” in rubies —
I love you
More (+) than yesterday (qu’hier)
Less (-) than tomorrow (que demain)
10% of each sale goes directly to Wild at Heart Foundation which funds animal welfare projects all over the world. In particular, the foundation wants to “compassionately reduce the world’s 600 million stray dog population”. They do this by organizing rescue projects, neutering programs and education initiatives.
Meghan also appears to be wearing her Jessica McCormack ‘Chi Chi’ rose gold and diamond bracelet, $10,500. We first spotted her wearing the bracelet to last night’s Endeavour Fund Awards.
