Meghan Markle’s latest public appearance drew some admiring gazes when she met some Californian students to talk about mental health and well-being.
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, debuted a new long hairstyle that seems to have been inspired by her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. Meghan appeared to have styled her silky locks in loose waves — a look that the Princess of Wales has made a signature style.
To go with the new look, Meghan wore a smart black dress with gold bangles as accessories. She topped off the elegant look with a smoky eyeshadow and nude lipstick.
The Mirror reported that the actress had been accompanied by her husband Prince Harry as teenagers from a local youth group, AHA! Santa Barbara met and talked with them.

During the visit, which lasted for about an hour, the couple talked about how people could lessen their feeling of insecurity and the effects peer-pressure had on young people, especially while using social media. The teenagers joined in the talks in an effort to try to find solutions.
It followed a “date night” when Harry and Meghan were seen enjoying some time out with friends for the first time since King Charles’s Coronation. The pair were pictured entering a sushi restaurant in Santa Barbara near their home in Montecito, California.
It was reported that the friends included some famous names.
According to a celebrity news and gossip website called Page Six, they may have included Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuk; Cameron Diaz and her husband Benji Madden; and billionaire Whitney Wolf Herd, the founder of Bumble, and her husband Michael Herd.
The royal couple dressed smart-casual for the restaurant visit. Meghan wore a brown Heidi Merrick mini dress, a pair of Hermes brown leather sliders and completed the look with a white bag from Cesta Collective, her hair this time tied back in a ponytail. Harry opted for relaxed white trousers, a plain black T-shirt and brown suede shoes.
