Three days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot, they made their first public appearance together. The royal newlyweds attended a garden party to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday anniversary, though his actual birthday is in November.


Numerous guests noticed that new Duke and Duchess of Sussex looked totally in love. Another thing that just couldn’t remain unnoticed was Meghan’s stunning outfit.

For the royal event, Meghan wore a gorgeous pink dress by Goat. She accessorized her look with a matching clutch bag, court shoes, and a stylish hat by Philip Treacy.

Fashion critics noticed that for the first time, Meghan was seen wearing pantyhose underneath her outfit - a rule all female members of the royal family follow. Duchess chose to have a minimum of jewelry except for the rose-shaped diamond earrings and, of course, her gorgeous wedding ring.

Meghan Markle completed her gown with a low bun hairstyle and natural makeup. In the full ensemble, she resembled a beautiful princess.
