Meghan Markle played basketball in heels and the internet is so impressed
Meghan Markle is certainly a woman of many talents, being an actress, philanthropist, sartorial icon, and not to mention a newly minted member of the royal family. And while you'd think that this would be enough for one mere mortal, the Duchess of Sussex only went and added another title to her roster this week: champion basketball player.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle kicked off their week at Loughborough University, north of London, where they met with honourees from Coach Core, an initiative which trains young people to become coaches. It was Meghan who really shone, however, when she took part in a passing drill in heels.
The erstwhile Suits actress wore a blue belted top by Oscar de la Renta and black flared trousers by Altuzarra as she passed the basketball back and forth to the students undergoing coach training. And here's the evidence to prove it...
I mean, I don't know about you, but I can hardly walk in heels, let alone effortlessly throw a basketball in them. I think it's official: Meghan Markle is a veritable wonder woman.
But while Meghan may be able to kick some serious butt in a pair of heels, she's still a true romantic at heart, as seen in a clip from the upcoming two-part documentary, Queen of the World.
In the video, Meghan is reunited with her wedding dress for the first time. It's evident that she loves the Givenchy gown, proclaiming "It's amazing, isn't it?", and admiring the veil, saying "The work that they did here is just so beautiful."
The Duchess of Sussex then elaborated on the touching tribute she made to the 53 nations of the Commonwealth, which was seen on her wedding veil. 'I knew that it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn't know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together," the 37-year-old explained. "It was important for me, especially now being a part of the royal family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated."
She added that her choice of veil "surprised" other members of the royal family. "I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we're gonna continue to do within the Commonwealth countries. So, yeah, it was good news all around, I think, so I hope people liked it as much as I liked helping to create it."
However, the most touching moment of the short clip was when the Duchess of Sussex shared that there was something hidden in the dress' veil. "Somewhere in here", Meghan says, "There's a piece of blue fabric stitched inside. It was my something blue. It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."
I mean, c'mon!
