The secret meaning of Meghan Markle's olive green royal christening outfit


Prior to marrying Prince Harry and becoming a fully-fledged member of the royal family, Meghan Markle was known for her messy bun.

The event, held at Glencairn House, had 300 people in attendance, including soccer player Brian O'Driscoll and writer Sinead Burke.

This is only the second time Markle has worn colour since her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, the first being at a reception last Thursday, for which she chose a yellow Brandon Maxwell dress.

It will be Prince Harry and Meghan's first trip outside the United Kingdom since their wedding in May.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the Abbey together with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with the Princes in their uniforms and Kate Middleton again sporting Alexander McQueen.

However, there was one aspect of their outfits which were nearly identical - their shoes.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle joined the princes for a service at Westminster Abbey.

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a demure, belted black dress from Dior with her favored boatneck neckline and a wild, Stephen Jones fascinator that she makes look chic.

This includes attending a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park and a summer garden party at the British Ambassador's residence. Before heading back to London, they'll also visit DogPatch Labs, a co-working space for tech start-ups.

Kensington Palace said the couple were "looking forward to learning more about Ireland's history and experiencing its rich culture, as well as meeting the people who are shaping the country's future".
