As many speculated, Meghan Markle attended the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto last night, September 23.
Meghan was seated next to her friend, Markus Anderson, who introduced her to Prince Harry last year. Meghan and Markus were seated a section away from Harry, who sat with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie, and First Lady of the US Melania Trump.

According to Rebecca English on Twitter, Meghan was accompanied by a Scotland Yard security guard: “Intriguingly one of Harry’s Scotland Yard (taxpayer-funded) personal protection officers standing in a stairwell next to #MeghanMarkle… Meghan Markle has just been ushered out by Scotland Yard royalty protection after Harry’s speech but before the end of the show.”
Meghan looked very pretty, I thought, in a Wilfred Beaune Dress in Truffle ($185) and a Mackage Baya Leather Jacket in Bordeaux ($690). Meghan also carried a purple velvet clutch which I’m in love with, and according to Rebecca English wore “cream pointed-toe heels” which I’m glad I didn’t see photos of because boring.
As a “first official appearance in the vicinity of my royal boyfriend” look, I think this one works very well. It’s slightly dressy, slightly casual, and slightly edgy with the leather jacket. Definite win here.
This post is solely about Meghan and her fashion. I have covered the event and Harry’s speech over on the other blog.
