RAF 100 Flypast planes spotted over Surrey


Meghan Markle clearly has a unique sense of style that's all her own, but she's been known to swipe a few pages from her royal sister-in-law Kate Middleton's playbook every now and then. Speaking to former Irish rugby ace Brian O'Driscoll at a garden reception in Dublin on Tuesday evening, the Duke of Sussex refused to be pushed on the squad's success.

The Duchess of Sussex opted for a new silhouette.

"Tenacity, skill and gallantry have been your hallmarks as you helped safeguard freedom and security in many parts of the world".

After participating in the centenary celebrations, Meghan and her husband Prince Harry traveled via a private jet to Dublin for a two-day tour of Ireland - marking their first overseas engagement as a married couple.

The 36-year-old actress completed the elegant ensemble with nude heels and a black clutch, also from the storied French fashion house, as well as a sheer black fascinator by Stephen Jones and a low bun.

Meghan and Harry are visiting Ireland.

Other female members of the royal family that donned badges included the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. The Duke also wore a green tie, which made the royal duo appear ready for a (refined) St. Patrick's Day party.
