On March 9, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their final appearance in the UK as working members of the royal family, attending the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.
The 38-year-old Duchess dazzled from top to toe in a statement-making emerald green cape dress, a bespoke creation by New Zealand-born designer Emilia Wickstead, and matching fascinator designed by William Chambers.
Alongside a photo of Meghan in motion and her cape catching the wind, The House of Sussex Instagram fan page wrote: “He found his hero.” “She was a gift from above,” a second mused.
The powerful image was flooded with fans agreeing that the flowing cape style of made her look quite literally like a superhero.
Speaking to HELLO!, colour analyst Gabriella Winters said the choice of a green dress is no coincidence either, with the hue representing calmness.
“In colour psychology, green is not only the colour of perfect balance but of productivity and ‘fruitfulness’ as well. A person wearing green will exert an impression of composure, rationality and stability,” she told the publication.
The Duchess added some glamorous accessories to her heavenly look, a Gabriela Hearst handbag and her favourite Aquazzura nude pumps.

Other eagle-eyed royal fans suggested that the Duchess was paying tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who wore a similar jewel-toned outfit while eight months pregnant with Prince Willian in 1982.
Of course, in the aftermath of Meghan and Harry’s decision to step back from their royal duties and relocate to Canada, a worldwide furore erupted over their polarising move, so never has there been a more appropriate time to keep calm (in a beautiful green Emilia Wickstead dress, no less) and carry on.

Prince Harry broke his silence over the controversy in January, explaining that both he and Meghan made the decision together.
“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option,” he revealed in a heartfelt speech at the time.
And no matter what you think of Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step away from the royal spotlight, there’s no denying that for Meghan’s final appearance, she certainly went out with a bang – without saying anything at all.
