Duchess Meghan has stunned 2018 Royal Ascot crowds, as she attended the famous sporting event for the first time together with her husband, Prince Harry. The 36-year-old beauty sported a gorgeous white Givenchy gown, making the heads turn.

The new Duke and the Duchess of Sussex were invited by her Majesty to watch the event from the royal box and present the winning trophy. They were also joined by other family members, including Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, and many others.

The American beauty is attending Royal Ascot just a month after marrying into the royal family. But her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, waited five years before making her debut. Why so?

Don’t worry, it’s not the case of a royal snub. Apparently, Duchess Catherine was invited every year, but she turned the invite down.

We’re sure the 36-year-old would have fancied an afternoon with the in-laws. But back then, both William and Kate were focusing on their two children – adorable Charlotte and George.

When the second in line quit his job, the two finally began to attend various official events, including Royal Ascot. This year, the couple was absent again, which is no surprise, as they had welcomed Prince Louis not long ago.

On the other hand, the newlyweds are eager to hit the ground running straight after their nuptials. Next month, they will travel to Dublin for a 2-day trip.

And in the fall, they’re planning to do a tour across Oceania countries.
