On Monday, Meghan Markle made her first official appearance alongside Queen Elizabeth at the 2018 Commonwealth Day inter-faith service at Westminster Abbey in London, England.
Markle wore a simple navy dress, which she paired with navy heels, a white coat, and a hat. She finished off her outfit with a handbag that she held like a clutch, which is Kate Middleton’s go-to handbag style.
The Queen, however, opted for a brighter ensemble.
The whole family sat together during the event. While Markle and Prince Harry sat behind the Queen and Prince Charles during the service, Prince William and Kate Middleton sat next to Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

Perhaps the most telling detail of Markle’s outfit was that she followed the longstanding royal tradition of wearing a hat for official events, although her beret was far more understated than Queen Elizabeth’s flower-adorned cap and Middleton’s oversized, flat-brimmed piece.
And if you’re finding yourself lusting over Markle’s timeless, chic look, there’s good news: Almost all of the pieces that she wore appear to be available online.
At the time of publication, her navy Manolo Blahnik pumps were for sale on Barney’s website for $625. According to the style blog Meghan’s Mirror, Markle’s Amanda Wakeley midi dress and coat are available on Orchard Mille — although her dress is currently low in stock. While her coat costs $1,199, the dress is being sold a discounted rate of $267 (it usually retails for $680). Her navy handbag, which was made by Mulberry, costs $675 and it is currently available for purchase.
The only item that isn’t available for purchase seems to be her beret-style hat, which was custom-made by Stephen Jones, according to Meghan’s Mirror.
Since Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November 2017, the former “Suits” star has started to dress more and more like a stereotypical royal, and we can’t wait to see how her style continues to evolve.
