  • This week, while her husband, Prince Harry, was back in the United Kingdom negotiating the terms of "Megxit," Meghan Markle stepped out for two private and charitable appearances in Canada.
  • The former actress wore a cream, cable knit sweater to one of the appearances, during her visit to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver.
  • According to fan fashion account @whatmeghanwore, the sweater appears to be the same one she wore during a Season 3 episode of Suits

Meghan Markle may be stepping back from her official royal duties, but the Duchess of Sussex is still dedicated to using her notoriety for good.

This week, Meghan stepped out for two private, charitable appearances in Canada, where she and son Archie Harrison are staying while Prince Harry is back in the United Kingdom, negotiating the terms of the Sussexes' exit from official royal life.

While Harry was across the pond handling all things royal, Meghan visited a women's center in Vancouver and made another appearance at Justice for Girls, an organization focused on ending violence, poverty and racism in the lives of teenage girls living in poverty.

According to fan fashion account @whatmeghanwore, the Duchess may have recycled an item from her Suits wardrobe during her visit to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver.

The account points out that the cream, cable knit sweater from The Row appears to be the same one Meghan wore in 2013 on season three of her USA series Suits. And, yes, @whatmeghanwore shared the receipts to back up the theory:

It wouldn't be crazy to think that Meghan took a few pieces from her character's closet home with her. According to Suits costume designer Jolie Andreatta, Meghan always loved Rachel Zane's look IRL.

"Meghan and I loved Rachel's clothes. We’d always say that, if we could, we would live in Rachel’s clothes," Andreatta told Harper's Bazaar UK. "Designing Rachel's look was like being a kid in a candy store."
