  • Meghan Markle wore blush for her first official engagement as the Duchess of Sussex after marrying Prince Harry 

    ‘It’s interesting to note the “passenger seat pink” often is worn in times where the male of the partnership is attending an important event or in circumstances where the spotlight needs to be on him.’

    That principle was in evidence last week when Queen Rania of Jordan accompanied her husband King Abdullah on an official visit to Washington.
