Face masks have become such a crucial part of modern life that they are now mandatory in the UK on public transport and inside shops, along with certain other areas. There are a great deal of pretty, cool, printed masks out there to make the whole process a touch more stylish, and the royals have — as ever — been leading the way.
A few weeks ago, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a lovely ditsy floral mask by online boutique Amaia, which unsurprisingly sold out within a flash. It is however now available to pre-order again, but the wait time is currently at three weeks.
If you’d like another option, why not go for a stripy mask like the one Meghan Markle just wore while volunteering in LA? The mask is by American brand Royal Jelly Harlem, which is an African-inspired clothing and home decorating line. The Adult Mask in Blue Seersucker is still available to buy online, and is priced at $15 (around £11). The brand offers international shipping for their items, details of which can be found on their website.
Meghan wore her mask — which is unisex, reusable, washable, and double lined — with a white shirt, shorts and some trainers. She was joined by Prince Harry and the pair spent all day working with children and handing out school supplies for Baby2Baby. The charity provides basic necessities like nappies to families in need.
Baby2Baby shared images from the day on their Instagram, alongside the caption:
‘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.’
Royal Jelly Harlem also shared a snap of Meghan in her mask, which the brand wrote she kept ‘safe & stylish’ in.
