Meghan Markle gives a hidden nod to International Women's Day with her latest outfit

Future royal Meghan Markle is well-known as a champion of women.

She's previously addressed the UN about gender equality, while a clip of her as an 11-year-old talking about a TV ad that she thought promoted gender stereotyping recently went viral.

Today Meghan and fiancé Prince Harry stepped out in Birmingham to launch a project aimed at inspiring female students.

It being International Women's Day, Meghan didn't let the occasion pass without marking it, albeit in a very subtle way.

She wore a navy coat with white detail and a white jumper. White, as Cosmopolitan notes, is a colour associated with the suffragette movement and with resistance.

The coat is by J Crew while the jumper is from All Saints.

Just last week, Meghan alluded to how she'll continue to support feminist causes as a royal.

Speaking at the Royal Foundation Forum, she said that there's no better time than now for the royals to shine a light on women's empowerment.

"You'll often hear people say, 'you're helping women find their voices'," she said.

"I fundamentally disagree with that because women don't need to find a voice: they have a voice.

"They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen."
