She showed off her basketball skill

She looked breathtaking as usual when she made an appearance with Prince Harry at the Loughborough University on Monday for the Coach Core Awards.

The royal couple joined 60 graduating apprentices for some basketball dunking. The event formed fairly recently - in 2012 - by the Royal Foundation "harnesses the power of sport and its ability to change lives and empower young people."

But why was she wearing heels?

Markle has chosen to be a pantsuit-wearing royal and on Monday she showed up in a mix and match pair.

Her dramatic jacket was by Oscar de la Renta according to E! Online and the trousers she rocked was by Altuzarra. The ubiquitous heels by Aquazzura that have become her signature, completed her look for the day.

Her decision to wear the infamous Aquazzura shoes while playing basketball is however strange given that she was fully aware of what this event would entail. Unlike her, Kate Middleton pays more attention to her clothing choices during her public sport-related appearances.

The Duchess of Cambridge is a keen sports lover. She takes her royal assignments to sporting events almost as serious as she takes showing up in public with impossibly perfect hair. What do you think of Meghan Markle's style choice?
