In Pictures: Meghan Markle experiences more sombre side of royal duty
Prince Harry’s fiance paid respect to Australian and New Zealand war dead as dawn broke before heading to Westminster Abbey for a memorial service.
Meghan Markle has accompanied fiance Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge at a memorial service for fallen war heroes at Westminster Abbey.
The duke welcomed his soon-to-be sister-in-law with a kiss on the cheek as she arrived with Harry for the annual Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving.
The service was to commemorate Anzac Day – the anniversary of the start of the First World War Gallipoli landings.
The American actress was believed to be wearing a custom version of a design from Emilia Wickstead’s spring 2014 collection.
The former Suits star accessorised with what appears to be an £850 Jimmy Choo J Box clutch bag.
Earlier in the day, Ms Markle and Harry attended a dawn service at Wellington Arch to remember the fallen.
After already attending a number of more upbeat official engagements, Ms Markle experienced the more sombre side of royal duty.
Ms Markle wore a wide brimmed black hat teamed with a grey trench coat believed to be a custom design by Matthew Williamson costing £1,140.
Ms Markle’s black suede shoes were thought to be Sarah Flint Jay Pumps worth £282.
The ensemble was finished off with a Gucci Dionysus velvet clutch bag reported to be £625.
