Yesterday, Meghan Markle visited the University of Johannesburg solo, without her husband Prince Harry and continued her South African tour. According to reports, she attended a round table discussion on access to higher education. But as always, her dress had style cops talking and praising her look. 

For this appearance, the Duchess dipped her foot into experimenting with a trickier item - the trench dress. The dress is a hybrid between a coat and a dress from Banana Republic and retails at only USD 116. She sported the khaki dress and made a chic but powerful statement by accessorising it with suede pumps by Start Weitzman in a colour that matched her dress, giving it a monochrome look. 

While her dress caught most people's attention, her hair too was the talk of the town! Her luscious locks were styled into glossy voluminous waves and blow with the wind, making her look like a total diva. But her hair wasn't all that blew with the wind! She was also photographed holding the edge of her dress down to stop it from being lied by the wind and making for a Marilyn Monroe moment! Previously, the former Suits star avoided a similar moment by seeing a hem just above her knee to avoid such a mishap. 

According to reports, Stewart Parvin a British fashion designer told a tabloid that the Queen also uses similar tricks. Another hack that the royals follow, according to Myka Meier, Etiquette expert, is that they wear undergarments with lots of static to ensure their skirts and outfits cling to their body!
