Meghan Markle Paid Tribute to Princess Diana With an Iconic Fashion Choice




Meghan Markle marked her first public appearance alongside Queen Elizabeth II on Monday March 12, taking part in the Commonwealth Day 2018 celebrations alongside the royal family.


The actress accompanied her fiancĂ© Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, to the U.K.’s biggest annual inter-faith gathering in Westminster Abbey, gaining attention for her ensemble.
Markle showed up to the Commonwealth Day Service in a cream-colored coat by British designer Amanda Wakeley ($1,199; orchardmile.com) and a fashion accessory beloved by another member of the royal family.
The actress wore a white beret to the service created by hat-maker Stephen Jones, who's known for producing a variety of berets for Princess Diana during her 20s.
“She really loved the world of fashion, and she liked the people in it,” Jones told Vogue in a recent interview. “It was an escape for her.”
Markle also donned a brown beret to the Christmas Day Church service with the royal family in December.
Markle accompanied the royal family to Westminster Abbey, where the royal wedding will take place next summer, for the celebration that included some 2,000 other guests, according to NBC.
With a theme of “Towards a Common Future,” the occasion brought together leaders from 53 independent countries that participated in speeches, discussions of traditional hymns and readings, and performances from British artist Liam Payne.
The Queen is the head of the global Commonwealth network and has been throughout her 66 year reign, continuing the historic tradition this year.
This isn’t the first time Markle has been noticed paying tribute to Prince Harry's late mother: The 36-year-old has two diamonds from Diana's collection featured in her engagement ring.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
