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 comes "at the request of Her Majesty's Government", a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said.

This evening, Prince Harry will accompany his American bride to a summer party at the British Ambassador's residence, with the guestlist including members of the Irish arts, sporting, military and social enterprise communities.

The Duchess of Sussex joined senior royals at Westminster Abbey in a custom Dior, a day after being panned for wearing "drab" green for Prince Louis' christening. Meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, are both planned.

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 Duke and Duchess will also visit DogPatch Labs, a co-working space for technology start-ups, where they will meet children and young people taking part in workshops, and talk to female tech entrepreneurs.

Meghan and Harry are officially in Ireland.

The Royals arrive at Westminster Abbey to mark 100 years of the RAF, ahead of the flypast.

Other guests at the posh do were Prince Charles and Camilla, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three youngsters, Prince George, 4, Princess Charlotte, 3 - and of course Prince Louis, eleven weeks.

When Meghan signed her name with a flourish, Harry added, "Yours is much nicer than mine".

She strode alongside Prince William, who, like his little brother Prince Harry, wore his full RAF uniform.
