Meghan radiates sunshine alongside Prince Harry at Commonwealth event

Meghan Markle radiates in summery yellow dress for outing with Prince Harry

With Her Majesty not being there for this event, it seems Meghan could also depart from her neutral fashion tones of late, opting instead for an eye-popping yellow dress.

There were a multitude of stories over the last week that Harry, 33, and his new wife Meghan, 36, were toning down their affectionate gestures in public after they chose not to hold hands at a recent event.

The Duchess of Sussex attends the "Your Commonwealth" Youth Challenge Reception at Marlborough House, London. Her makeup was understated, and her hair worn in a low bun.

Meghan made a drastic departure from her more muted wardrobe choices by donning the yellow shift dress by USA designer Brandon Maxwell, who has worked as Lady Gaga's stylist since 2012.

Meghan and I are incredibly excited to meet so many of you representing the future of the Commonwealth.
The third time she wore the designer since unofficially joining the Royal Family was for her second engagement of 2018, when she wrapped up in a black coat with a pretty ribbon belt for a day in Cardiff.

Along with her canary yellow coat and hat at Ascot, the Queen also wore a bright green coat and hat during her joint appearance with Meghan in Cheshire last month.

At the reception, the royal couple met youths who have completed their leadership training provided by the Commonwealth Secretariat in a further step to develop their ideas on the type of Commonwealth they want to see in 2040. Ever since donning the dress in which she said "I do" to Prince Harry, she's shown her allegiance to the brand.

"I am really looking forward to Prince Harry and Meghan (Markle) coming to Dublin and I think they are going to be made very welcome", the Taoiseach said.

The encounter was recorded nearly a month after Meghan and Prince Harry's royal wedding.

This will mark Harry and Meghan's first official visit to Ireland; they visited Northern Ireland in March, two months before marrying. "They were just laughing because they were joking about how they were exhausted and finally it was over".
