On Saturday, May 19th, American actress Meghan Markle, 36, officially became a member of the Royal family when she married Prince Harry, 33. On their wedding day, the couple was granted their official title as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Only a few short days after their wedding ceremony, the newlyweds stepped out in their first public appearance since the Royal wedding. The two attended a garden party to honor Prince Charles — Harry’s father.
The special event was in celebration of Charles’ 70th birthday, despite the fact that it isn’t until November 14th of this year. According to PEOPLE, having more than one birthday celebration throughout the year is a Royal family tradition.
At the event, which fell on the anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing at an Ariana Grande concert, Duchess Meghan stunned in a beautiful, pale pink dress designed by Goat, reported PEOPLE. Her outfit was completed with a matching hat, clutch, and pumps, and accented with silver jewelry including her flashy wedding ring.
Prince Harry was by his wife’s side in a tan vest, royal blue tie, and striped pants. The Prince had several black accents including his dark shoes and suit jacket; he was also spotted carrying a black top hat and umbrella.
