Windswept Meghan Markle battles the elements on solo royal engagement

Her royal hairness!

She's rarely seen with a hair out of place, but all that changed for Meghan Markle as she got caught in a gust of wind during a visit to the University of Johannesburg.

Wearing a £95 Banana Republic trench dress, the usually perfectly coiffed Duchess of Sussex was seen battling the South African elements on her solo royal engagement.

Arriving at the university, Meghan smiled broadly as she got out of her car, her long, brunette locks styled into loose waves.
