Meghan Markle made a glamorous entrance to her first official black tie event with husband-to-be Prince Harry on Thursday night.
The US actress went for a very modern look in a tight-fitting black Alexander McQueen trouser suit, and towered in stiletto heels as she joined the royal at the Endeavour Fund Awards in London.
Wearing a loose white top tucked in, she managed to steal the show with minimal effort, and was all smiles as she shared loving glances with Harry in front of the cameras.
The couple greeted fellow guests inside, after shielding themselves from the rain with a huge umbrella outside. Meghan needn’t have worried about the downpour however, and managed to keep her hair styled over her shoulders.
It’s a very modern style choice for the royal family, with many undoubtedly expecting Ms Markle to arrive in a glamorous dress for the event. However, she appeared to win the style crown once again at the star-studded bash.
The 36-year-old actress was there with her fiance to celebrate the incredible sporting achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. They use sports such as scuba diving, mountain climbing and dog sledging to help their recovery and physical abilities.
The couple will begin the night by meeting nominees, before enjoying the official ceremony.
Meghan has been enjoying some quality time with Harry since moving full-time to the UK last year. She spent Christmas with the royal family, and attended her first public engagement just weeks ago, for the traditional Christmas church service at the Queen’s private residence in Sandringham.
Embracing her new role with the family, Meghan Markle arrived side by side with Prince Harry and her new in-laws, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The foursome were pictured happily chatting and laughing as they made their way towards the church, stopping to greet the Queen and Prince Philip with a bow and curtsey — Meghan’s first in public.
Hundreds of well-wishers turned out to greet the family and many were treated to a handshake and a chat from William, Kate, Harry and Meghan as they walked passed.
Just like her fiance, it seems Meghan can’t help having a little fun when the opportunity strikes and was photographed cheekily poking her tongue out at a young child waving from the sidelines.
