But of course it's not just any old white shirt for former Suits star Meghan, the oversized lightweight linen shirt, which featured striped embroidery, was by British designer Victoria Beckham.

Meghan's love for an oversized white shirt came when she appeared alongside Harry for their first public appearance when she sported Misha Nonoo's 'Husband' shirt.

Since then it's a wardrobe staple Meghan appears to love, appearing several times in a white shirt over the past couple of years.

From Wimbledon to the Endeavour Fund Awards, and her first appearance with Harry the white shirt is a go-to for the former actress.

And the charity event in LA was no different as the mum to Archie returned to her signature style.


The Victoria Beckham shirt while pricey at £320, is actually on sale for half price, so if you want to copy Meghan's style you can still snap it up for £160, with an additional 10 per cent off at checkout, before it no doubt sells out.

Meghan finished off her look wth a pair of loose-fitting khaki shorts, Adidas trainers and a face mask by Royal Jelly Harlem.

Wearing face coverings and disposable gloves as they approached the car windows, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex handed out clothes, nappies and other supplies, helping provide necessities for families in need.

Baby2Baby's Instagram account shared photos of the parents to one year old son Archie as they volunteered at Dr Owen Lloyd Knox Elementary School.

The charity wrote to their 159,000 followers: "Baby2Baby was proud to host a drive-through distribution at Knox Elementary in South LA as students across the country return to distance learning this week.

"Thank you to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for joining our team to help us distribute school supplies, clothing, hygiene items, food and more to children who need these basic essentials more than ever during this unprecedented back to school season."

Their first outing since moving to their £11million home in Los Angeles comes after the author of a new biography on the pair told OK! magazine they are "stronger than ever" after stepping down as senior members of the Royal family.

Omid Scobie, the author of Finding Freedom, said: "Now they're stronger than ever because of what they've experienced.

"I think their love for each other grows the more they take on. The statement from Harry early on about the sexism and racism Meghan was being subjected to was the thing Meghan needed to see at that stage to know it was worth sticking out. I think if Harry had showed fear at taking on the media, I'd have argued that it may not have lasted."
