Since kicking off the tour, she's mostly stuck to the classics, wearing her hair long and parted down the center, as well as donning her signature sleek bun. But on Tuesday, she added something that we don't often see on the duchess: a hair accessory.
As with anything Markle does, this one comes with a pretty sweet backstory. While walking the streets of the colourful Bo-Kaap neighborhood in Cape Town for Heritage Day, Markle accepted a bouquet of flowers from a child who greeted her. Moments later, she chose to tuck one of the lilac blooms behind her left ear, and continued to wear it for the rest of the day, which included a celebratory meal at a home in the area.
In this case, there appears to be no obvious hidden meaning to this particular flower type or Markle's decision to wear it. However, there's something to be said about a duchess like Markle feeling joyful and carefree enough to spontaneously add a flower to her hair — all while honoring the warm welcome it represents.
