Meghan Markle joined her fiancé Prince Harry today at a reception with delegates from the Commonwealth Youth Forum. The event in London is part of the high-profile Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting week.
Earlier this week Queen Elizabeth appointed Prince Harry as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, a role which will form a key part of the couple’s work after they marry.
For today's outing at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, the future royal wore a pinstriped pinafore dress by Altuzarra and debuted two Australian brands, Camilla and Marc and Oroton. You will find a complete break down of Meghan's outfit below.
WHAT MEGHAN WORE
DRESS: Altuzarra 'Audrey' Pinstriped Stretch-Cotton Trench Dress (£1,450).
JACKET: Camilla and Marc 'Marguerite' Blazer (AU$699)
SHOES: Tamara Mellon 'Paramour' Suede Heels (US$475)
BAG: Oroton 'Avalon' Zip Top Crossbody Bag (AU$245)
EARRINGS: Birks Gold Bar Earrings (US$375)
JEWELLERY: Meghan wore her Catbird Threadbare Yellow Gold Rings ($44 each) and Vanessa Tugendhaft Promesse Infinie Ring (€1,150). She also accessorized with a mix of gold bracelets. One is a thin solid bangle, the other a chain, and the third a cuff bangle with two semi-precious stones.
It is by Californian-based jeweler Tai. The piece is the Asymmetrical Circle Stone Open Bracelet with Moonstones (US$65).

I love that she is wearing Tamara Mellon shoes!! I was only eye balling those shoes yesterday! It’s very expensive if you’re not rich! Tamara Mellon is super pro equal pay for women and that’s why she is not with Jimmy Choo anymore- because they would not pay her what she’s worth or asked for. They told her she was already rich- for a woman!! Happy to see MM using her fashion choices to reflect her beliefs in feminism. She looked beautiful and every item is perfect. Very excited to follow her fashion choices here on in. She is a well informed fashion buyer.

Omg Lennie, I can't believe that anyone would tell any woman that she's rich enough!! Not doubting you but I'm just shocked that those words would actually come out of someone's mouth.

I love, love this outfit!!! And I want every single piece! Especially the dress and purse, where does she keep all her wonderful clothes and accessories?

Yup. Tamara talks about it quite openly. Staggering isn’t?!

I dislike the dress but LOVE everything else. I'm so glad Meghan is staying true to her sense of style and not morphing into a Kate Middleton clone. I know many people think Meghan doesn't dress "royal" enough but I actually love that about her. She reminds me of Queen Letizia in that way.

I hope to never see Meghan in a coat dress. :)

Love this look, I find that Meghan's fashion choices are always more 'risky' I guess for the royal family but I love them. This look was different and GREAT! Unlike the duchess of cambridge who generally like to play it safe Meghan is way more out there and I like it.

Thanks for letting me know Lucy! I'm looking into it now x

I am so sorry but this just does not work for me at all. She is representing the Queen and the Commonwealth and she looks unprofessional. I hope she can stay true to her own personal style but this is a job and she is representing more than just herself. All the seperate pieces of the outfit are gorgeous, just not styled like this for this occasion. I actually own the Camilla and Marc blazer and I wear it to work constantly.

I agree Annie, I strongly disliked this outfit. It was like fabulous puzzle pieces that did not work together. She does need to up her royal/professional game and I don't think she needs to copy the Duchess of Cambridge to do that. There are several royals all over the world each with their own style but all royally appropriate. And is it just me or does she spend more money on her outfits than most?

Thanks Meresu and your right, we don't need another Duchess of Cambridge the one we have is pretty fantastic. Hope she can find her sartorial way.

Meghan's clothing spend is definitely much greater than Kate's was in the early royal years. I'm not sure who is paying for Meghan's clothes since she does represent the Crown when at these events.

Could the gold chain be the sweet nothing braclet from catbird?

Great suggestion Grace! I'll look into it x
