Meghan reveals reason she ‘never wore colour’ while she was in the UK

During her time as a member of the royal family,Meghan Markle was known for her incredible style choices,with the so-called ‘Meghan Effect’ often making her outfits sell out and set trends.

But while she was known for her love of wide leg trousers and neutral toned dress,during an episode of the Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan, the 41 year old has opened up about the reasoning behind her fashion choices.

Speaking about how she’s been spotted wearing brighter looks now that she lives in the US, the former Suits actress revealed that her muted UK wardrobe had one very specific reason behind it.

“Most of the time that I was in the UK, I rarely wore colour. There was thought in that,” she said.

“To my understanding you can’t ever wear the same colour as Her Majesty if there’s a group event. But then you also should never be wearing the same colour as one of the other more senior members of the family.”

As a result, in a bid to prevent any awkward fashion faux pas, the Duchess of Sussex decided to carve out a sense of style that wouldn’t clash with any other member of the family.

“I was like, ‘well, what’s a colour that they’ll probably never wear?’ Camel? Beige? White? So I wore a lot of muted tones,” she explained.

However, Meghan also went on to say that her avoidance of colour was also a way for her to fit in with the rest of the royals and to avoid her “embarrassing” The Firm.

“It also was so I could just blend in. Like, I’m not trying to stand out here,” she said.

“There’s no version of me joining this family and trying to not do everything I could to fit in. I don’t want to embarrass the family.”

Elsewhere in the documentary,Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan opened up about one oftheir very first encounters after sharing a series of flirty messages on Instagram.

Speaking about how they met, Harry explained that he’d come across a picture of Meghan on a friend's Instagram, where she could be seen in a clip with the dog ear filter.

He revealed: "Meghan and I met over Instagram. I was scrolling through my feed and someone who was a friend had a video of the two of them, it was like Snapchat."

Meghan added that she was happily single and was intending on having a "hot girl summer", until Harry came along.

"I was really intent on being single and having fun girl time," admits Meghan. "I had a career, I had my life. I had a path. And then came H [Harry]. Talk about plot twist."
