Meghan Markle wore a Stella McCartney Cape Dress in black for Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral on September 19. This was a poignant resolution by the Duchess of Sussex as she already owned the identical costume in navy. But what was the story behind Meghan’s black costume?

According to the Instagram web page @royalfashionpolice, the Duchess’ funeral outfit was a “last minute order”.

They wrote on Instagram: “Many of you have wondered if the British Royal Family mourning outfits are made in advance or last minute.

“From what I’ve been instructed, Meghan’s black cape costume seemed to be a last-minute order.”

The royal fashion expert also commented on the Stella McCartney dress that the Duchess wore for her wedding reception in 2018.

They added: “The Stella costume Meghan wore for her marriage ceremony reception, that very same lead seamstress together with different seamstresses completed that costume the night time earlier than the marriage at 2am.”

What else did Meghan wear for the Queen’s state funeral?

For footwear, the Duchess opted for a pair of Stuart Weitzman Black Tippi Pumps.

These were “black suede pumps with leather-based heels” according to the website.


Unfortunately, these gloves are no longer in stock, so it is unclear how much they cost Meghan at the time of purchase.

Twitter user @TvKhaleesi said: “Meghan’s entire look was concerning the Queen. Talk about being considerate.”

Royal fans were happy to hear these new details about Meghan’s funeral look, with Instagram user @jeeepereira commenting: “Wow! Thanks for sharing some superb particulars! 2am? I’m shocked!”

Another fan, @traciruark added: “So attention-grabbing! I really like particulars like this. Thanks a lot!”
