Hours after walking down the aisle in a couture Givenchy gown designed by Clare Waight Keller, the newly wed stepped out wearing a second dress, designed by Stella McCartney for her wedding reception.
The silk halter-neck gown was accessorised with satin Aquazzura pumps that boasted baby blue soles as Meghan’s “something blue”. Markle wore a pair of Cartier's Reflection de Cartier earrings in white gold and diamonds.

And that wasn’t the only pop of blue the new Duchess of Sussex wore to the reception – Meghan was also photographed wearing Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring. It’s unclear whether the cocktail ring is a gift from Prince Harry to his new bride, or whether Markle simply wore is as a sartorial tribute to the late princess and her “something borrowed”.
The former Suits actress waved her statement sparkler at the crowd before the newlyweds hoped in a 1968 Jaguar to their evening reception at Frogmore House.
Princess Diana first wore the ring to an auction of her wardrobe at Christies back in 1997.
