Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, visited her namesake region of Sussex alongside Prince Harry on Wednesday, October 3. For the special moment, Markle stepped out wearing a hairstyle that was rather reminiscent of her wedding reception from May.
The former Suits actress was dressed for the season in a forest green button-down shirt tucked neatly into a teal leather skirt. Markle swept her tresses back in an elegant bun leaving down one portion of her locks to frame her face. The look, of course, was a throwback to her wedding appearance before she and Prince Harry made their way over to Frogmore House for their evening reception.
At the time, the hairstyle, a simple semi-undone messy bun, was styled by London-based celebrity hairdresser George Northwood. Markle accessorized her reception gown by Stella McCartney with a brilliant blue diamond ring once worn by Princess Diana. On Wednesday, she accessorized her outfit with more contemporary jewelry pieces all by London-based brand Missoma.
Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex’s actual wedding ceremony hairstyle was created by the reputable Serge Normant. “I didn’t want to do anything set in a time frame—too much volume—that would look retro, I just wanted a loose and easy look, which is why we chose that loose bun,” he previously told People. Normant revealed that the total time to create Markle’s wedding hairstyle was about 45 minutes.
Normant also revealed he used a simple tool to achieve the coveted beauty look: bobby pins. “I just used long, regular pins,” he said. “Things that you could just find in the shop for a few pounds. People could re-create it at home, absolutely, maybe even better!”
