Meghan Markle is out on the royal event circuit for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee—and she brought back her royal style for the occasion. The Duchess of Sussex was seen at Trooping the Color, the Queen’s birthday parade, wearing a navy off-the-shoulder dress with a white wide-brimmed Stephen Jones hat adorned with a matching navy ribbon.
The Daily Mail has more photos of Meghan in the look, which you can see here. The outfit has a similar look to the navy Roland Mouret dress she wore ahead of her royal wedding to Prince Harry.
Meghan and Harry were not part of the carriage procession and weren’t on the balcony with the Queen for the flypast. butt photographers first captured Meghan inside the window with Savannah Phillips and Mia Tindall, watching the Horse Guard Parade. The Palace announced yesterday that Meghan and Harry were watching the parade from the Major General’s Office.

Meghan and Harry are spectators at the parade this year rather than part of the procession. A Buckingham Palace spokesperson explained why they weren’t invited to be on the balcony early last month: “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year’s traditional Trooping the Color balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd of June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen.”
Meghan and Harry are close with the Queen personally though. Harry spoke warmly of his relationship with her in April during his Today Show interview. “Being with her, it was great,” Harry said of meeting the Queen with Meghan that month. “It was just so nice to see her. She’s on great form. She’s always got a great sense of humor with me, and I’m just making sure that she’s, you know, protected and got the right people around her.”
He added that he is very close with his grandmother. “We have a really special relationship,” he said. “We talk about things she can’t talk about with anyone else.”
