The outfit called to mind a similar ensemble that Kate wore to Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding day on May 19 - a pale yellow version - as well as the cream take on the look that she chose for Princess Charlotte's 2015 baptism.

Which Markle did yesterday when she wore a chic black Emilia Wickstead dress to a garden party reception she attended in Dublin, part of her first official worldwide trip with Prince Harry as a royal. They will be introduced to a cross section of Irish luminaries from the arts, sports, diplomatic and military sectors.

The royal couple will meet both President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during their relatively short two-day trip.

The couple will then depart for Trinity College to learn about Ireland's culture and heritage, including a stop at the Library of Trinity College where the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures, is on display.


The Duchess of Sussex perfectly blended old and new for her first time donning Dior.

Even before leaving for Ireland, it has been a busy week for the newlyweds.

Middleton is known to give not-so-subtle nods to the country she's visiting when traveling overseas, such as the time she looked like a walking Canadian flag in a white dress and red hat adorned with maple leaves in July 2011.

The Queen and the other royals watched Typhoons form the shape of the number 100 in the sky, before the Red Arrows, the RAF's aerobatic team, concluded the show, vapour-trailing the red, white and blue of the Union Jack flag.


The Queen has praised the Royal Air Force for its "tenacity, skill and gallantry" as she was joined by senior members of the royal family at the centrepiece of centenary events.

Fresh from Prince Louis's christening yesterday, the royal foursome arrived at the iconic landmark for a service celebrating the RAF's history.

More than 2,200 people packed out Westminster Abbey for the service, with dignitaries including Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby attending.
