A Fascinator, Nude Pumps and Sheer Tights: Meghan Just Had a Middleton Moment

Earlier today, the Duchess of Sussex made her first outing as a member of the royal family at a garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate Prince Charles turning 70. Three days after her wedding, Meghan looked appeared to have had a royal makeover; she wore an outfit that could have come straight from the Duchess of Cambridge's own wardrobe. Meghan turned to one of Kate's go-to labels, Goat, a British designer that specialises in classic workwear and tailoring.

Meghan wore a dove-grey dress by the brand with a pencil skirt and sheer silk-chiffon sleeves and neckline. Although a version this dress is available for £590, a custom style was made for Meghan in a slightly different shade. "We're honoured the Duchess of Sussex chose to wear Goat for her first official royal engagement," says Jane Lewis, the label's founder. Meghan then paired her dress with a classic Philip Treacy fascinator in the exact same shade, a pair of nude court shoes and a pair of flesh-coloured tights.
