Significance behind Meghan Markle’s dress revealed | Royal | News

Meghan Markle’s Mother’s Day dress, worn during her visit to Nigeria, held a ‘deeply symbolic’ meaning, an expert has said.

The Duchess of Sussex chose to wear the same yellow Carolina Herrera Silk Overlay Column dress that she had previously donned for significant family events, including the announcement of her pregnancy with daughter Princess Lilibet and son Prince Archie’s first birthday party.

It was originally thought Meghan chose to wear the dress as a tribute to her children on Motherin Sunday in the United States.

However, celebrity PR Brenda Christensen told the Mirror that the choice carried a deeper significance.

Brenda, the CEO of Stellar Public Relations, said: « Choosing to wear the same yellow dress on Mother’s Day was deeply symbolic.

« Especially since she previously wore it for other meaningful family milestones. It’s a celebration of motherhood.

« Raised in LA by a yoga instructor mother, her connection to spirituality runs deep. The colour yellow, representing happiness and joy, holds profound spiritual significance.

« In many African cultures, including Nigeria, yellow is reserved for those of high rank due to its resemblance to gold, symbolizing wealth, quality, success, and royalty. »

Meghan recently found out she’s 43 percent Nigerian, as revealed by a genealogy test. Upon this revelation, she excitedly phoned her mother, stating it was « exciting » for both of them.

She has previously mentioned that being African-American often means « really not knowing so much about your lineage or background, where you come from specifically ».

« It’s been really eye-opening and humbling to be able to know more about my heritage and to be able to know this is just the beginning of that discovery, » she had said earlier.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down in Abuja, Nigeria in the early hours of Friday morning.

Post-arrival, they visited a school to interact with children and deliver speeches on mental health.

Meghan even snapped selfies with some students at the Lights Academy, while the Duke of Sussex playfully photobombed his wife.
