While she may be stepping back from the Royal Family after less than two years, Meghan Markle has certainly learned from the best when it comes to making a parting statement. 

As the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry prepare to step back from the spotlight and wrap up their last public engagements, Meghan seems to have borrowed one of Kate Middleton's tried and tested styling tricks, wearing the UK's national colours as a nod to her former home. 

In a series of dazzling appearances over the weekend, Meghan stepped out in red, white and blue, each outfit showcasing her own unique take on royal fashion. 

The first was the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House, where Meghan looked radiant in a figure-hugging sky blue crepe dress by Victoria Beckham, featuring short capped sleeves, delicate seams and a silver zip running all the way up the back. 

She perfectly matched her accessories to her outfit, adding navy blue suede Jimmy Choo heels and a striking marble-effect Stella McCartney clutch bag. Meghan is a pro at monochrome outfits, but keeping the colour palette simple and to one colour may well have been her nod to the Union Jack. 

Next, the Duchess stunned in all white as she made a solo trip to the National Theatre's Immersive Storytelling Studio in London, where she heard about innovations in digital storytelling.

Opting for a more romantic silhouette than she usually chooses, Meghan wore a crisp white Topshop blouse with voluminous chiffon sleeves and delicate buttons down the front. With her long dark hair worn in loose waves, her look was fresh and feminine but still decidedly modern. 

She paired it with a textured white pencil skirt by Roland Mouret, one of her favourite designers, a black statement hangbag from Loewe and strappy Mary-Jane style black heels. 

Finally, Meghan practically surpassed all her other looks - except, maybe, her wedding outfit - when she stepped out in a scarlet red monochrome outfit for the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The jaw-dropping fully-length gown was by Safiyaa, and featured a straight column gown, a chic structured cape over the shoulders and a dramatic train that trailed behind Meghan as she walked. The stunning gown cost roughly £1,295 (€1,500). 

Keeping to the monochrome theme, Meghan paired her ensemble with bright red heels by Aquazurra, a sleek red satin clutch bag by Manolo Blahnik - costing £1,260 or roughly €1,450 - and striking red bejewelled floral earrings by Irish designer Simone Rocha.

For the special occasion Meghan wore her long locks smoothed back from her face and tucked behind her ears, while her makeup was typically radiant, with a swipe of bronzer warming up her features and dramatic smokey eyeshadow oozing glamour.
