Meghan Markle may not be allowed to wear jeans as freely and often as she could in her commoner days, but that doesn't mean she's had to pack up her jorts and say goodbye to denim for good. Not only is she still perfectly within her royal rights to wear jeans on more-casual, unofficial outings—as sister-in-law Kate Middleton regularly does for playdates and some sporting events—but she also proved that denim can be made slightly more formal while attending husband Prince Harry's charity polo match this week.
On Thursday, Harry and Meghan traveled to the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, just west of London, in order to attend the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, People reports. The event was held to raise funds and support for Sentebale, the charity Harry co-founded in 2006 to benefit children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana. During Thursday's match, Harry played alongside Argentine polo star Nacho Figueras on a team captained by British polo player (and regular Sentebale supporter) Malcolm Borwick.
While cheering on her husband at the event, Meghan wore a navy blue, tea-length Carolina Herrera denim dress with a V-neck, cap sleeves, pockets(!), and a matching wide denim belt cinched around her waist. She completed the look with Aquazzura's nude "Deneuve" pumps, a beige woven clutch, and oversize cat-eye sunglasses, and she wore her hair in her signature slightly undone, middle-parted messy bun.
By now, Meghan certainly knows her way around a polo field. She and Harry made their public debut as a couple in May 2017 at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England; in a sweet coincidence, Meghan's shoes at that match were also reportedly from Aquazzura. And earlier this month, the newlyweds upheld this tradition and attended the 2018 Audi Polo Challenge. The royal couple that attends charity polo matches together, stays together.
