Meeting Royalty is usually a memorable occasion – but Rihanna‘s encounter with Prince Charles may prompt painful recollections for the pop idol.

The 33-year-old was presented to the heir to the throne during last week’s historic ceremony marking Barbados’s transition from a constitutional monarchy to a republic.

The Umbrella singer – who was born in Saint Michael and was named a National Hero of Barbados during the celebrations – was quick to grasp Charles’s hand when it was her turn to meet him, despite clearly sporting a discreet splint on her right fingers.

In a sign that Charles’s grip may have caught her by surprise, she was spotted in New York three days after the ceremony with a more substantial brace protecting her injured fingers.

The Prince of Wales has garnered a reputation for a firm handshake after decades of ceremonial duties. In 2012, shortly after meeting the Prince, New Zealander Ann Loader, said: ‘I thought he might break my fingers.’

Layer up like Rihanna in a Marni jacket

Winter is here, so there’s no time like the present to invest in a new season coat.

We’re taking our lead from Rihanna, wearing cozy outerwear by Marni. She completed the look with Balenciaga metallic boots.

But back to the coat: This classic padded design has been given a refreshing makeover thanks to its colorblock effect. We love the fluffy faux faux trim too!
