Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have officially wrapped up their final appearance in the UK as working members of the royal family, attending the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on March 9th.
And now, avid royal watchers have pointed out the subtle meaning behind Meghan Markle's timelessly chic emerald green cape dress, which was a bespoke creation by New Zealand-born designer Emilia Wickstead.
Alongside a photo of Meghan in motion and her cape catching the wind, The House of Sussex Instagram fan page wrote: "He found his hero."
The powerful image was flooded with fans agreeing that the flowing cape style of made her look quite literally like a superhero.
"Omg super hero princess," one user penned.
"She was a gift from above," a second mused.

Meanwhile, colour analyst (yes, apparently that is a real job!) Gabriella Winters told HELLO! the choice of a green dress is no coincidence either, with the hue representing calmness.
"In colour psychology, green is not only the colour of perfect balance but of productivity and 'fruitfulness' as well. A person wearing green will exert an impression of composure, rationality and stability," she told the publication.
Of course, in the aftermath of Meghan and Harry's decision to step back from their royal duties and relocate to Canada, a worldwide furore erupted over their polarising move, so never has there been a more appropriate time to keep calm (in a beautiful green Emilia Wickstead dress, no less) and carry on.
Prince Harry broke his silence over the controversy in January, explaining that both he and Meghan made the decision together.
"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option," he revealed in a heartfelt speech at the time.
And whether you think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are heroes or villains in this scenario, there's no denying that for Meghan's final appearance, she certainly went out with a bang - without saying anything at all.
So long, farewell! Meghan and Harry will now jet back to Vancouver Island, Canada to officially commence their life as regular citizens. (Image: Getty)
