Sweet detail about Meghan Markle’s Fashion Awards outfit you might have missed

Last night Meghan Markle made a special appearance at the Fashion Awards 2018 to present her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller with the Designer of the Year Award for womenswear.

Since photos of the Duchess of Sussex surfaced online, people haven’t been able to stop talking about her glamorous appearance – and the fact that she may have broken royal protocol with her outfit.

The 37-year-old was dressed in a stunning black one-shoulder dress, which showed off her growing baby bump, and had her hair slicked back in a classic bun.

She paired her outfit with simple jewellery and some burgundy nails – which goes against one of the Queen’s major fashion rules, as she reportedly considers coloured nail varnish to be "vulgar".

But while everyone was debating protocol, they failed to notice the significance of the gold bracelets around Meghan’s wrist.

The bangles were designed by Pippa Small, with one of the pieces retails for a whopping £360.            

Small’s latest collection, including these pieces, were hand made by men and women artisans of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation in Afghanistan.

Established in 2006 by Prince Charles, Turquoise Mountain is a charity which aims to preserve and regenerate historic areas and communities in order to create new jobs, skills and a renewed sense of pride.

Therefore it could be said that her choice of accessories was a nod to her father-in-law.

Despite recent reports that Meghan is "difficult" the pair appear to have formed a good relationship – with Charles even displaying a photo of him walking the Duchess down the aisle in his home.

According to The Sun, the expectant mother’s outfit shows she wants to "make a difference".

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews said: "Meghan wants to wear jewellery and clothes that are both fabulous and have a social conscience.

"And by wearing it at such a high-profile event as last night, she’s ensuring her choices make a difference."
