Meghan Markle was by her husband's side when he was making an inspiring speech, and she looked exceptionally proud and honored to be there.
The Duchess of Sussex made an amazing fashion choice for the event. She appeared in a bright yellow dress by designer Brandon Maxwell, who was actually Lady Gaga's stylist in the past.
The beautiful summer dress was very different from Meghan's recent toned-down outfits. The Duchess has been favoring nude and white colors these past few public engagements, so this yellow number was a breath of fresh air.
We're absolutely obsessed with how amazing Meghan looked in the sunshine dress. It perfectly complemented her complexion and brought a somewhat happy mood to the occassion.
Social media reactions
Not surprisingly, the public once again has split opinions on the Duchess' dress.
