Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a full itinerary today for their visit to Birkenhead, England. The two kicked off the activities at Hamilton Square by greeting fans and throughout the day will visit a number of local organizations that support and empower groups within the local community, including Tomorrow's Women and The Hive Wirral Youth Zone.

For the visit, the Duchess of Sussex arrived wearing bold color on bold color, with a dress from Babaton by Aritizia in a vivid shade of purple, and an equally bright red coat by Sentaler. It's a completely different look for Meghan, who typically opts for demure shades of nude, navy and black for her royal appearances.

You might also have spotted Meghan's Gabriela Hearst leather bowling bag and delicate jewelry—a pair of dainty earrings by Bar Jewellery. She even wore a pair of matching bold red heels from Stuart Weitzman to complete the look, despite being pregnant, a true testament to her style as a chic duchess. (Because you'd find me in sneakers, TBH.)

Today's visit comes after last week when Meghan dropped by Smart Works (an organization that helps women re-enter the workforce), which she recently became a patron to. The Duchess of Sussex has a busy schedule lined up for today and she's handling everything like a pro. See more photos of her outfit, from head to toe, ahead.
