For her first official event with Queen Elizabeth II today, Meghan Markle opted to coordinate outfits with her future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. Arriving alongside Prince Harry and Prince William, the two women wore matching white and navy looks — and the same navy suede pumps — for Commonwealth Day celebrations at Westminster Abbey.
Markle wore a cream coat and matching beret with a navy sheath dress and classic suede pumps.
Complementing her mostly white look, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a similar coat dress in navy with a matching hat and the same suede pumps as Markle.
Today's event marks a major milestone in Markle's royal career — her first public outing with Queen Elizabeth II. At the celebrations, the royal family will observe flag bearing, performances, readings, and more to honor the 53 nations of which the Queen is the symbolic head.
The bride-to-be has been sticking to her sleek, classic, signature style since she first started embarking on royal engagements with Prince Harry in December 2017, often opting for an elegant statement coat or trousers. However, she's dressed up a bit more for her events with Her Majesty.
She went for a more neutral but nonetheless luxe look for the Christmas Day service with the royal family, her first public appearance with the sovereign. Markle donned a camel wrap coat by Sentaler, a Canadian label, perhaps giving a subtle nod to her former city of residence, Toronto. She finished off the ensemble with elegant brown accessories: suede Stuart Weitzman boots, a Chloé circle bag and a fascinator.
As we continue to keep track of Markle's wardrobe as she becomes a duchess, one sartorial question we can't help but ask is, what will she wear when she marries Prince Harry on May 19?
