Markle’s look consisted of a pair of long tailored navy shorts, a white button-up blouse, and tan suede pumps. Her beaded clutch bag and leather belt with a golden buckle matched her shoes, and she accessorized with a golden watch, Hermès bangle, and golden studs. She wore natural makeup and slicked her hair back into a neat ponytail.

The duchess was seen walking out of a building holding hands with Steinem, who was dressed in all black. The renowned journalist and author wore a loose long-sleeved shirt, trousers, flat shoes, and a large belt embellished with a golden buckle and white seashells. She carried a black duffle bag and wore gold rings and rose-tinted aviator sunglasses.

Markle is in town with husband Prince Harry. The two attended the U.N. Nelson Mandela Prize award ceremony today—where the duke gave a heartfelt speech—and met with ambassadors. The duchess was pure elegance in a little black dress with medium-length sleeves and side pockets with silver buttons, holding hands with her husband. She paired the elegant piece with a pair of matching pumps and kept it simple with her accessories, carrying only a black shoulder bag and wearing a set of gold bangles. Prince Harry, meanwhile, went for a classic navy suit and white dress shirt.
