It’s no secret that this school year is going look quite different, but imagine the Duke and Duchess of Sussex helping you prepare for the new semester.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle volunteered with Los Angeles-based charity Baby2Baby on Friday, Aug. 21 to help distribute donated school supplies, clothing, food and more to local students in need. The couple looked totally in their element passing out supplies and greeting community members in photos shared on the charity’s Instagram.
For the event, Meghan wore olive green shorts, a white linen button-down blouse, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and a fabric face mask by Black-owned brand Royal Jelly Harlem. According to the brand’s website, it was founded by mother-daughter duo Teta and Maya Gorgoni in 2011, and it makes African-inspired clothing and home decor, as well as masks.
Meghan wore the brand’s blue seersucker face mask, which retails for $15 and is still in stock (for now). Coincidentally, Royal Jelly Harlem posted a photo of the mask in a kids’ size to its Instagram four days ago and by Friday morning, comments were flooding in about the duchess wearing the striped style.
“Meghan brought me here. About to order for my family right away 😍” one person wrote in the comments on the brand’s post.
“Yup Meghan brought me here as well and I just placed my order 😎😷” another said.
So, if you want to copy Meghan’s style, it seems you may want to shop fast. And if it sells out, as items she wears tend to do, the brand has plenty of other styles to choose from.
