Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Color-Coordinated at First Joint U.K. Engagement Since Announcing Royal Exit

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be preparing for their official royal exit on March 31, but that definitely didn’t stop them from wowing crowds at the 2020 Endeavour Fund Awards.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Mansion House in London today color-coordinated in bold blue ensembles and wearing big smiles. The Endeavour Fund Awards mark the 35-year-old prince and 38-year-old duchess’s first joint U.K. engagement since announcing their plans to step back from their duties as senior members of the royal family.

For the occasion, Markle selected a cerulean blue figure-flattering shift dress with short sleeves and a banded waist by Victoria Beckham, which is shockingly still available ($1,335). She kept her accessories unexpected and wore a multi-colored marbled hexagonal clutch with a gold bauble closure and what appeared to be her suede pointed-toe navy Manolo Blahnik 105mm BB pumps ($665).

She fashioned her hair into a long and wavy, but sleek, middle-parted low ponytail, and opted for garnet colored lipstick and an aubergine and copper smoky eye. Markle kept things on the jewelry front low-key and simply sported delicate small hoop earrings and a thin gold bracelet, as well as her engagement ring and infinity band.

Prince Harry complimented his wife’s color pallet and opted for a bright blue suit, white button-down and icy blue tie. Now, that’s what we call power-matching.

Tonight’s outing was the couple’s third year attending the award show. Markle first accompanied Prince Harry to the ceremony in 2018, when she wore an Alexander McQueen pantsuit. The following year, she sported a custom Givenchy blouse and skirt combo while pregnant with Archie.

We can’t wait to see what they wear at the rest of this week’s royal engagements.
