Meghan Markle wears Givenchy for her first Royal Ascot outing

Meghan Markle news Meghan Markle

The father of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was Tueday embroiled in a new controversy as it emerged that he was paid over $10,000 for a new tell-all interview with a UK TV channel following his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry.

Dettori won the St. James' Palace Stakes at Ascot, riding Without Parole to victory.

The newlyweds arrived at the iconic horse racing event in an open-air carriage, and were accompanied by Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

The Duchess of Sussex arrived dressed in a cream coat, with a cream and black hat; the Queen wore yellow.

Markle's tailored monochrome look differs greatly from her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton who chose a more formal and classically feminine look for her first Royal Ascot appearance in 2016. Instead, the Queen shared her carriage with The Princess Royal Princess Anne, and the Duke of York and the Lord Vesty.

As the newly-wed Duchess of Sussex made her way to her evening reception in a striking bridal gown, the watching world saw her complete her journey into the royal family.

Markle opted for an understated white silk belted silk dress by Givenchy, her favourite go-to designer.

Sporting a chic cream fascinator with elegant looping bow detail, at first glance we assumed it would be the work of Philip Treacy.

Meghan was, by all accounts, rather reticent to reveal her new boyfriend's identity even to her own father when the pair started dating in July 2016.

The other big part of Royal Ascot is the strict dress code: elaborate hats are a must (at least 4 inches must be covered for the ladies, while men must don top hats) as is "morning dress" for the men and "formal daywear" for the ladies.

Prince Charles and Markle's close bond has become apparent when the next-in-line to the throne opted to walk her down the aisle after Thomas made a decision to cancel his attendance at the royal wedding.

The couple married exactly a month ago during a ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle that merged tradition with modernity and diversity, and are rumoured to have slipped away for a honeymoon break a few weeks ago.
