Meghan Markle recycles Victoria Beckham boots at service today

Meghan Markle recycles £1,250 Victoria Beckham boots as she attends her first Remembrance Day service at Westminster Abbey – and boosts her ‘youthful glow’ with peach blusher

  • Meghan Markle, 38, opted for a long navy coat and matching fascinator today  
  • She attended 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey in London today
  • Makeup artist Stacey Whittaker says blush on cheeks added a ‘youthful glow’

Meghan Markle looked glowing in royal blue as she attended the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey in London today. 

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, who joined husband Prince Harry, 35, to honour the nation’s war dead, wrapped up warm in a navy coat and recycled a pair of knee-length heeled boots by Victoria Beckham.

She first wore the classic footwear, which retails at £1,250, to Christmas day church service at Sandringham last year. 

The mother-of-one added a pair of chic leather gloves and a £630 velvet blue fascinator by Philip Treacy to complete her look –  and she hit the perfect note when it came to her hair too, according to celebrity hair stylist James Johnson.

‘It’s styled in a soft wave giving an elegant appearance, which sits nicely with the fascinator,’ he said. ‘Anything too styled or tightly curled can look too much with a headpiece – they complement each other and its balanced way.’

He continued: ‘Meghan has opted for lots of volume perfect for the colder season to keep your head warm. Heavier hair makes it look thicker.’

The Duchess of Sussex, who viewed the sea of tiny crosses erected by regiments, military units and other organisations associated with the First World War and other conflicts, added a poppy to the lapel of her stylish jacket as she paid her respects.

And award-winning makeup artist Stacey Whittaker says the royal cleverly paired her navy outfit with golden makeup, too. 

‘Meghan has added hints of peach tones in her blush and lipstick giving her a nice radiant glow,’ Stacey explained.

‘She may be wearing a little more contour than she would usually wear and this sculpts her cheekbones perfectly.’

The expert also adds Meghan has a beautiful ‘blush’ on the apples of her cheeks, which offers a ‘youthful glow to her makeup.’ 

HOW TO RECREATE MEGHAN’S MAKEUP AT HOME 

Stacey Whittaker says: ‘Meghan’s makeup is still natural and subtle and you can achieve this light contour easily at home by using bronzer. ‘

‘A really simple way to apply this is to create a number 3 shape from your forehead down to your jaw line.’

‘Follow the natural contours of your face and use a large fluffy brush to ensure there are no harsh lines.’

‘The peachy tone of her blush is gorgeous and you can easily recreate this using Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion in shade Peach.’

‘Use an angled brush and lightly dust this over the apple of your cheeks and outwards.’

‘The duchess has paired her polished skin with a subtle nude/peach lip and finished with a layer of gloss to tie the look together,’ she explained. 

‘A glossy lip is not something we have seen Meghan wear a lot before but it really suits her and complements her subtle smokey eye ‘

‘Gloss looks gorgeous against bronzed, dewy skin, just like Meghan’s.’
