Tonight, the duchess of sussex made a surprise appearance at the 2018 british fashion awards at the royal albert hall to present this year’s womenswear award.
as she walked on stage she said: “it is such a pleasure to be here celebrating british fashion and british fashion designers in my new home of the uk. it’s so nice to see so many familiar faces; many of you i’ve know for quite a while and a lot of you i’ve been able to meet in the past year, so thank you for the warm welcome.”
she continued: “i recently read an article that said the culture of fashion has shifted from one where it was cool to be cruel to now, where it’s cool to be kind,” she said. “to that point i feel especially proud to announce tonight’s winner who, yes, is a british designer, leading on the global stage with vision and creativity, but also with incredible kindness, which is why when i met her for the first time 11 months ago i knew that we would be working very closely together.”
she then presented the award to clare waight keller who said, “i got to know meghan on such a personal level,” the british designer said. “to have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life is something that is just the most unbelievable honor. i can’t thank you enough because it was the most beautiful moment.”
i’ll update this post when i have more time.
