Was that a true miniskirt Duchess Meghan of Sussex wore to see “Hamilton” in London on Wednesday?
We didn’t have a tape measure to precisely calculate just how short her Judith and Charles tuxedo minidress was when she and Harry arrived for the performance, a charity gala for Prince Harry’s African children’s charity Sentebale.
But it was above her knees and you could see her slender (and bare) legs. She carried a gold box clutch and wore black canvas spike heels.
It was one of the first times we’ve seen Meghan’s knees at a public engagement since she and Harry married on May 19 at Windsor Castle. (Traditionally, royal protocol dictates knee-length hemlines and hosiery.)
Even before the wedding, Meghan started being more careful about showing off too much: Her outfit for her engagement announcement, in November 2017 at Kensington Palace, included a dark green Parosh dress topped with a belted jacket from Line. Both covered her knees.
The “Hamilton” gala, which included writer/director/star Lin-Manuel Miranda, was aimed at raising awareness and funds for Sentebale’s work with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.
Harry and Meghan, who sat next to Miranda in the audience, met with representatives of Sentebale and with other cast and crew of the global smash hit (which Meghan has seen at least twice before). After the show, both Harry and Miranda addressed the audience.
The hip-hop hit, which features one of Harry’s ancestors, King George III, tells the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton and pokes fun at the British monarchy.
Ahead of the show, Miranda spoke to the royal pair about the distant relation.
“The prince’s sixth-great-grandfather is a character so that’ll be fun and surreal for all of us,” Miranda said.
