Meghan Markle wore an edgy black outfit for her latest podcast with Mindy Kaling, proving remote working doesn't need to compromise style. 

Meghan Markle's outfit for her latest Spotify podcast episode has been revealed – and let's just say, it's definitely not from her old royal wardrobe. 

The Duchess of Sussex was joined by US actor Mindy Kaling on Tuesday for the third episode of Archetypes, entitled The Stigma of the Singleton. 

The highly-anticipated conversation, which was recorded at the 41-year-old royal's £14 million Santa Barbara mansion, saw the two women sit down to share their experiences of being unmarried women in American society. It also featured several revelations about the duchess, including a candid confession from Meghan that she wanted a 'poofy dress' for her 'Swan Lake' wedding when she was younger.

After the podcast dropped, Mindy shared a photo of herself being interviewed by the former Suits star on her Instagram account. 

In the sweet snap, a smiling Meghan is dressed in cropped, black leather trousers and a fitted black turtle neck. The skyscraper heels on her shoes are peaking out from behind the mahogany coffee table, which holds an assortment of candles, a small bouquet of white flowers, and a disposable coffee cup. As we've come to expect from Meghan Markle's hair, her dark brown locks are seamlessly styled into a sleek, high-ponytail, while her jewelry is simple with one just one silver bracelet and barely-there stud earrings. 

Mindy, meanwhile, is rocking a fuchsia maxi dress with her hair flowing in waves over her shoulders. 

The release of the podcast episode on Tuesday coincided with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's arrival in Germany, where they attended the One Year To Go countdown to the 6th Invictus Games 2023 in Düsseldorf. The American royal has been loving her updo styles lately, with Meghan's elegant low bun at the military sports event giving fans major flashbacks to her royal wedding in 2018. 

The Sussexes' trip to Düsseldorf yesterday was part of a whirlwind tour of Europe, which sees the couple fulfilling a number of charity engagements in both the UK and Germany. They kicked off their transatlantic visit with an appearance at the One Young World Summit in Manchester on Monday, before heading to Germany on Tuesday morning. 

It's understood that Harry and Meghan flew back to London last night to stay the night at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which is just a 15 minutes' walk from Prince William and Kate Middleton's new home of Adelaide Cottage. The Sussexes reportedly have no plans to meet the Cambridges ahead of their appearance at the WellChild Awards in London on Thursday, which is expected to be the last engagement on their jam-packed tour.
