The Duchess of Sussex has favoured a series of daring styles while travelling in scorching temperatures during her whistle-stop tour of Nigeria alongside Prince Harry.

Unlike the Princess of Wales, who typically opts for more conservative looks while travelling abroad, Meghan Markle chose a very different wardrobe for the hot weather during her most recent visit.

From her Β£450 open-back blush silk maxi by Californian designer Heidi Merrick, which is sold as the ‘Windsor Dress’, to her Β£2,275 striped sundress with cut-outs by Columbian designer Johanna Ortiz, Meghan hasn’t held back when it comes to dressing for the 95 Fahrenheit heat.

Meghan, 42, equally chose a bright red midi dress with a ruffled hem and spaghetti straps for her appearance at a Women in Leadership event in Abuja.

Designed by Nigerian creator OrΓ­rΓ©, the vibrant dress allowed the Duchess to ‘fit in’ with the country’s ‘incredible fashion’, she said.

Meghan shared her thoughts while co-hosting the event with Nigeria’s director General of the World Trade Organization, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

She said: ‘It has been a whirlwind 24 hours since we arrived, and I very quickly got the memo that I need to wear more colour, so I can fit in with all of you and your incredible fashion!’

While Kate Middleton tends to opt for more demure dresses – even when faced with high temperatures – Meghan appears happy to show a little more skin.

For her arrival in Jamaica as part of the royal tour of the Caribbean, which the Prince and Princess of Wales completed in March 2022, Kate chose a high-neck yellow dress with cap-sleeves by Serbian designer Roksanda.

In contrast, the Duchess of Sussex sported a white strapless gown by Australian design studio St Agni to attend a reception with the Nigerian chief of defence, Christopher Musa.

Indeed, in public appearances since she met Prince Harry (including her wedding day which was watched by millions around the world), Meghan has opted for off-shoulder and boat-neck styles in both dresses and tops.

In particular, she set tongues wagging during her first ever Trooping the Colour when her bespoke Carolina Herrera dress with a bardot neckline showed off both her shoulders and her arms, in a break from tradition in royal fashion – but fans went wild for the look nonetheless.

Meanwhile, Kate, also 42, has a tendency to have her outfits customised so as to have less skin on show.

At Crown Prince Hussein’s lavish wedding to Rajwa Al-Saif in Jordan last year, the Princess of Wales wore an Elie Saab custom gown featuring long sleeves, a ruffled high neckline and intricate detailing on the bodice.
