Meghan Markle wore a striking 70s-inspired outfit for her first public appearance in the UK, stepping out a matching red blouse and trousers to attend the One Young World Summit in Manchester on Monday. 

Meghan Markle has stepped out in style yet again, wearing a sophisticated 70s-inspired outfit for her first UK outing since the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in London on Sunday, flying in from California on a commercial plane in light of the recent criticism of Prince Harry's use of private jets. The royal couple is back in England for a whirlwind European tour of charitable engagements, starting with a visit to Manchester on Monday (September 5) for the One World Summit. 

Their Northern stay will be short-lived, however, as they fly to Germany on Tuesday to attend the Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year To Go event. They'll be back in the UK on Thursday for the WellChild Awards in London, where Prince Harry is expected to deliver a speech to some of the country's most inspiring young people.

The Sussexes traveled from Frogmore Cottage to Euston station on Monday morning, where they boarded an Avanti train to Manchester. Despite using a secret entrance to access the busy station, it didn't take long for folks to notice the A-list couple. 

Never one to disappoint in the style department, Meghan opted for an elegant beige outfit for the 2-hour-long journey up north. The duchess co-coordinated a tan polo with retro, wide-legged beige pants, and skyscraper platform heels, while tying her straightened dark hair up into a sleek high ponytail. 

Prince Harry looked equally dapper, wearing a cool blue shirt, navy blazer, and dark denim jeans to catch the rail car alongside his wife and their bodyguards. 

Meghan let the retro vibes continue in Manchester, changing into an all-red outfit for the opening ceremony of the One Young World Summit 2022 at The Bridgewater Hall. The elegant ensemble, which consisted of a high-necked blouse and a pair of wide-legged trousers from the sustainable luxury brand, Another Tomorrow, was teamed with Aquazurra red heels and chunky gold jewelry.

It's understood that the Sussexes have no plans to meet Prince William and Kate Middleton during their UK trip, despite staying just 15 minutes away from the Cambridges' new home of Adelaide Cottage. They reportedly will also miss the Queen, who is currently residing at her Scottish vacation home of Balmoral Castle.
