Like so many of us this year, the Duchess of Sussex has become well acquainted with Zoom.

Over the past few months, she and the Duke of Sussex have made various appearances from their home in California, to discuss issues close to their hearts, including education, racial equality, and voting.

To talk about such important topics, Meghan’s wardrobe has been suitably sleek and powerful…

In a black suit…

Meghan and Harry recently led a conversation for TIME100 Talks, entitled ‘Engineering a Better World’, that featured guests like entrepreneur and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Meghan kept things simple and professional for the session, wearing a black blazer and white blouse – with Harry wearing something very similar.


Meghan wore characteristically delicate jewellery, with some suggesting the Cartier watch she’s  seen wearing was Princess Diana’s.

In a maxi dress…

Meghan chose a more relaxed look for her conversation with Fortune editor Emma Hinchliffe, to discuss social media and motherhood. The weather is obviously balmy in California, as she wore a summery strappy maxi dress by the brand Hope For Flowers. The Pointlist Swirl Slip Dress from the label’s summer 2020 collection is now sold out, but was a rare injection of pattern into Meghan’s wardrobe – she’s normally a fan of block colours.

In a turtleneck…

For International Day of the Girl, Meghan and Harry spoke with Malala Yousafzai about the importance of educating girls. Turtlenecks are a classic choice, and Meghan gave her black top an edge by wearing a sleeveless style with a subtle ribbed effect. It’s the Miranda top by Anine Bing, costing $229 (€193), and was worn with simple white trousers.


Paying tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg…

Meghan paid tribute to the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with her initials, ‘RBG’. The unisex top is available on Etsy, costing £20.10 (€22.25).

In a statement Meghan said: “With an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be known as a woman of brilliance, a justice of courage, and a human of deep conviction. She has been a true inspiration to me since I was a girl.”

In an asymmetrical top…

Earlier this month, Harry and Meghan spoke with the Evening Standard in honour of Black History Month to discuss structural racism. For the occasion, she championed Victor Glemaud, the black designer behind Glemaud. The Slash Long Sleeve Top, costing $375 (€317), is the perfect example of how to show off your style on Zoom by using an interesting, asymmetrical neckline.


In a striped shirt…

In another virtual event with Fortune – this time for the Most Powerful Women Summit – Meghan opted for a relaxed yet professional look, thanks to a striped shirt from brand With Nothing Underneath. The label focuses on making slouchy yet tailored boyfriend shirts, founded by former Vogue stylist and Tatler editor Pip Durell. It’s not the first time Meghan has worn a shirt from the brand, perhaps because its environmentally friendly ethos fits with her sustainability goals.

In Victoria Beckham…

To honour the leaders and changemakers of the TIME100 and to urge Americans to register to vote, Meghan chose to wear a favourite label: Victoria Beckham. She’s often seen in Beckham’s sleek, modern designs, this time wearing a silk brown shirt paired with simple black trousers and black heels.
