However, Meghan ditched the royal tradition for her latest appearance with her husband Prince Harry, instead sporting a bold look that was reminiscent of her final farewell tour of the UK. 

As she sat down for a Zoom call with activist Malala Yousafzai in honour of International Day of the Girl, the Duchess looked stunning with her hair styled into a middle parting and pulled back into a sleek, low bun.

While her hairstyle was one of her trademark looks, her makeup choice may come as more of a surprise to royal fans. Meghan has rarely been seen sporting dark eyes and berry lips – perhaps most memorably during the Endeavour Fund Awards back in March.

At the time, Meghan paired her darker lipstick with a bright blue Victoria Beckham dress, but for her recent Zoom call, she kept the rest of her outfit simple.

During the virtual chat, Meghan and Harry opened up about lockdown life, delighting fans with an insight into their son Archie's milestones"We were both there for his first steps, his first run, his first fall, his first everything," Harry said.

Meghan then reflected: "And it's just fantastic because I think in so many ways, we are fortunate to be able to have this time to watch him grow and in the absence of COVID, we would be travelling and working more externally, and we'd miss a lot of those moments."

The former Suits actress went on: "So I think it's been a lot of really good family time."
