Meghan Markle Attends Her First Royal Ascot in Audrey Hepburn-Inspired Look

Prince Harry was "open to the experiment" of Brexit and happy to give US President Donald Trump a chance, the father of the now Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has revealed.

She topped the elegant ensemble off with a black and white Philip Traecy hat, getting the fill Royal Enclosure stamp of approval. Markle's wedding to Prince Harry took place on May 19 - exactly a month before the start of Ascot.

Despite his absence at Prince Harry and Markle's wedding, Thomas shared his thoughts about the special day.

The event, which concludes on June 23, will also feature Meghan and Prince Harry presenting the winning trophy for the St. James's Palace Stakes - with a $9.7 million (US) prize pot, the largest pot in the United Kingdom.


Ascot is Britain's most valuable and reputable horse racing meet, with the Royal Enclosure having a strict dress code to adhere to. The couple attended the wedding of Princess Diana's niece Celia McCorquodale where Meghan stunned in a long-sleeved blue and white paisley wrap dress and white fascinator at the wedding of Princess Diana's niece.

Prince Harry and Markle received rapturous welcome and later presented a winner's trophy to jockey Frankie Dettori, who kissed her hand.

"The Duke and Duchess are 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", the royal family's website shared.

The Duchess of Sussex showed off a darker brow style with more of a dramatic shape on Tuesday.


The Princess Royal and Duke of York joined their mother in the lead carriage and were followed by another carrying the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

When Meghan and Harry stepped from their carriage Edward handed his nephew a copy of the official race programme with details of all the runners and riders.

She added, "Maybe a Father's Day visit after the PR stunt said a visit would happen, would be appropriate". Their appearance at the eagerly anticipated race event came hours after Kensington Palace announced that their first official overseas trip as a couple would be to Dublin, in July.
