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.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
