Royal Style Transformation: See All of Meghan Markle's Looks Since Becoming a Royal
New royal wedding, new look! Meghan returned to St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle — where she and Harry married in May — to celebrate the nuptials of Harry's first cousin Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank. This time around, she stuck with the same designer (Givenchy) but opted for a navy dress and coat, as well as a matching hat by Noel Stewart.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived! For her first joint visit with Prince Harry to Sussex, Meghan wore a cream cashmere coat from Giorgio Armani, a silk dark green shirt by And Other Stories and a green leather pencil skirt by Hugo Boss for the event. She pulled her hair back into a low bun and carried the green leather "Nina" bag by Gabriela Hearst.
For her first solo royal engagement, Meghan attended the opening of "Oceania," a Pacific art exhibit at the Royal Academy of Art in London, in advance of her upcoming tour Down Under with Prince Harry. She stunned in a black Givenchy dress with billowing sheer sleeves (her wedding dress designer!) and her go-to black pumps by Aquazzura for the milestone moment. She kept her long hair straight and sleek and carried a Givenchy clutch.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Loughborough University to meet with honorees from Coach Core, a program that trains young people to become coaches and encourages the next generation of athletes. Despite her attire — a blue belted top by Oscar de la Renta, black flared pants by Altuzarra and notably, heels — Meghan showed she's got game when she took part in a passing drill.
For her first royal hosting event, Meghan held a palace lunch to celebrate the publication of her charity cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook. Accompanied by husband Prince Harry and her mother, Doria Ragland, Meghan wore a black top by Tuxe, a pleated black skirt by her designer pal Misha Nonoo and a bright blue coat by Smythe paired with her go-to Sarah Flint black pumps.
For the 100 Days to Peace gala, marking the 100th anniversary since the end of the First World War, Meghan brought some color back to her wardrobe with a blue sleeveless dress by Jason Wu. She paired the chic silhouette with matching blue satin pumps with jewel embellishments from her go-to shoe designer, Aquazzura, and carried a small navy Dior clutch. Veronica Lake–inspired curls finished off her elegant look.
On her 37th birthday, Meghan arrived at the nuptials of Prince Harry’s close friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, in a color-block, pleated shirtdress from Club Monaco (now sold out; this one is similar) that featured an olive, pink and white skirt. She accessorized with a Philip Treacy hat, her trusty Aquazzura pumps with bows on the strap, a knotted belt and a clutch by Kayu. And though her $324 shirtdress was budget-friendly, her Linda Farrow sunglasses – made with real gold and clocking in at $1,105 – were fit for a royal.
Meghan looked darling in denim as she came out to support Prince Harry at a charity polo match, wearing a waist-cinching belted dress with a V-neckline by Carolina Herrera. She accessorized with a fan-shapped rattan clutch by J. Crew (Pippa Middleton has the same one!), glam Tom Ford sunglasses and Aquazzura heels.
At an exhibition marking the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela in London, Meghan donned a blush pink sleeveless trench dress by Canadian label NONIE. She accessorized her sleek neutral look with matching pumps, stud earrings and a Mulberry clutch.
The duchess visited Croke Park in Dublin wearing a black Givenchy pantsuit— her first pant look on an official outing — with a white shirt and Sarah Flint pumps.
The duchess chose an olive green Ralph Lauren Collection dress, a Stephen Jones hat and matching pumps for her nephew Prince Louis' christening at the Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace in London.
Meghan attended the nuptials of Princess Diana's niece, Celia McCorquodal, wearing a $5,490 Oscar de la Renta floral print maxi dress with a $40 white fascinator from Marks & Spencer.
For her first solo outing with the Queen herself, Meghan wore a flattering light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy and carried a bespoke clutch by the same designer. Her royal style transformation clearly pleased the Queen, who was all smiles during their official visit to north England.
Meghan's blush crush continues! For her Trooping the Colour debut, the duchess showed off a new bouncy blowout and opted for a custom-made pale pink Carolina Herrera dress, featuring a daring off-the-shoulder neckline that was a bit of an unofficial break in royal wardrobe protocol. To top off the look, she wore a Philip Treacy hat in a matching shade, which looked quite similar to the one she wore at her first post-wedding royal debut at the Buckingham Palace Garden party.
Just days after marrying Prince Harry, the newlywed (and newly royal) made her first public appearance at Prince Charles' 70th Birthday Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. Meghan looked elegant in a "rose-pink" "Flavia" pencil dress by London-based womenswear label Goat Fashion, which featured a tailored bodice, pencil skirt and a silk-chiffon yoke and sleeves. She gave the look extra polish with a dusty rose asymetrical hat by Philip Treacy, $2945 rose gold and diamond earrings by Paris-based jeweler Vanessa Tugendhaft (which then sold out in just 10 minutes!), a sleek chignon and pantyhose — a royal staple.
For her evening wedding reception at Frogmore House, Meghan changed into a second and slightly more sexy — but equally minimal — wedding dress. Designed by Stella McCartney, the dress was "a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe," according to a statement from the palace. It featured a high halter neck, an open back and a train that Meghan carried herself. She accessorized with diamond drop earrings and satin heels from Aquazurra with baby blue soles - plus an aquamarine ring that belonged to Princess Diana.
It's a real-life fairy tale! For her highly-anticipated wedding gown, the bride turned to British designer Clare Waight Keller of French label Givenchy. The stunning silk gown featured an open bateau neckline and sculpted waist. The train flowed in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. Meghan also wore a tiara straight from the Queen's jewelry vault, the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau, which helped secure her cathedral-length veil, featuring a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from each of the 53 counties in the Commonwealth in threads and organza. The new royal opted for elegant and simple jewelry from Cartier to complement her gown's silhouette, wearing delicate diamond stud earrings along with one simple diamond bracelet.
