Akshata Murty watched on as her husband Rishi Sunak gave his last speech outside the prime minister’s office in Downing Street. Just hours before, Rishi Sunak’s party had been handed a crushing defeat by the Labour Party. While discussion on the UK election result and the future of Britain raged on, there was also a discussion (read trolling) about the dress Akshata Murty wore while her husband gave his resignation speech.


A blue, white, and red patterned dress became a topic of much discussion, with some people commenting on the colour of the dress, while others had a unique take on the pattern of the dress. Some even commented on the price of the dress.

A social media user, poking fun at the pattern of Murty’s dress, said, “Here, Akshata Murty’s dazzling camouflage breaks up her shape against the background, making it difficult for German U-boats to ascertain her range, speed and direction.”

“Akshata Murty’s dress is a stereogram and if you squint for long enough you can see an airplane leaving for California,” another one said.

The trolls were at their creative best with one person saying “Akshata Murty’s dress is also a QR code that gets you a Disneyland fast pass.”

The dress is priced at 395 pounds (Rs 42,000).

For the unversed, Rishi Sunak is the richest person to hold UK prime minister post. His wife, Akshata Murty, is the daughter of billionaire Narayana Murthy, founder of tech giant Infosys. The couple are the wealthiest inhabitants yet of No. 10 Downing Street, according to the Sunday Times’ 2024 Rich List, with an estimated fortune of 651 million pounds ($815 million).

The sharp-eyed internet users also spotted the umbrella in Murty’s hand and had lots to say about that.

“Rishi Sunak giving his resignation speech while his wife, Akshata Murty, loiters in the background with an umbrella is quite… er… odd?” said another person on X.
