Meghan Markle's Monochrome Outfit Is Autumnal Perfection

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited a school on the second day of their New York trip.

It's been too long since we've seen Meghan Markle out and about in official capacity, but as usual, the Duchess of Sussex delivered.

On Friday, Meghan and Prince Harry stepped out for the second day of their tour of New York City, this time making an appearance at a Harlem elementary school. The duchess wore a relaxed burgundy suit, complete with a pair of burgundy stiletto pumps, making for a perfectly autumnal ensemble.

In videos from the event, she could be seen reading from her children's book, The Bench, as students sat around her outdoors on the playground.

"I wrote this when we just had our little boy, and I haven't read it to any other kids but you," she told students.

The duke and duchess were also seen arriving at the school and greeting students with hugs.

According to Harper's Bazaar, the Sussexes were joined by New York City Public Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter for the visit, which was meant to highlight the school's initiatives and to promote early literacy in young students. They're also expected to donate vegetable and herb planters for the school in response to a need for easier access to fresh and healthy food in the community.

The visit comes one day after Meghan and Harry met with Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family and Governor Kathy Hochul at the One World Observatory. On Saturday, they are expected to make an appearance at a Global Citizen Live event, aimed at fundraising for global vaccine equity.
