Was this a true miniskirt worn by Duchess Meghan of Sussex on Wednesday in London "Hamilton"?
We had no tape measure to accurately calculate how short she was Judith and Charles Smoking mini dress when she and Harry arrived for the performance, a charity gala for Prince Harry's African child relief organization Sentebale
But it was about her Kneel and you could see her slim (and bare) legs. She wore a gold box clutch and wore black canvas spike heels.
It was one of the first times we saw Meghan's knee at a public engagement since she and Harry got married at Windsor Castle on May 19th. (Traditionally, the royal protocol dictates knee-length hems and stockings.)

Even before the wedding, Meghan began to be more cautious: Her outfit for her November 2017 engagement announcement at Kensington Palace included a dark green Parosh dress topped with a Line belt jacket. Both covered their knees.
The "Hamilton" gala, which included writer / director / star Lin-Manuel Miranda, was designed to raise awareness and promote Sentebale's work with children and adolescents affected by HIV in South Africa.

Harry and Meghan, who sat next to Miranda in the audience, met with representatives of Sentebale and other actors and crew of the global smash hit (the Meghan has already seen it twice). After the show, Harry and Miranda addressed the audience.
The hip-hop hit, featuring one of Harry's ancestors, King George III, tells the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and makes fun of the British monarchy.
Before the show, Miranda talked to the royal couple about the distant relationship.
"The prince's great-great-grandfather is a character who will be funny and surreal to all of us," Miranda said.

It became surreal when the prince actually sang the words of his predecessor on the show
"You say …" the prince sang, one line out singing the song George III " You will be back," to the delight of his audience, including Miranda and the cast, before he told them, "That will not happen." (Although Meghan reportedly told a performer that "when they saw London's production this winter," "Harry loved it, it was the first time he saw it, and now he can not stop singing the songs!"
Harry then thanked those who attended the charity evening and told the audience, "Through this work that we are about to do now, we will be able to stop the generation-based transmission of the stigma surrounding HIV . " 19659023] "You say …"
