As the duchess settles into her role as a royal, we're looking forward to seeing how she balances her natural style with the more conservative modes of dress that royals are expected to adopt.

The two put on a very affectionate display in London on Thursday, holding hands and sharing some private laughs at a Marlborough House event which marked the culmination of the Commonwealth Secretariat's youth leadership workshop.

The sunny look is a complete departure from her other neutral looks but going by how bright and still elegant she looked in the outfit, we can't say we mind.

She wore minimal jewellery.

However, earlier this week she made a return to her pre-royal days' style, looking relaxed in a white button-down shirt from J.Crew, black cropped Everlane trousers with matching Chanel flats, and an AU$78 Panama hat (reportedly by Madewell x Biltmore). Harry and Meghan received briefings on how the youth are collaborating to make change and mold the future.

Meghan and Harry mingled with guests and met with participants from several commonwealth countries, ahead of their first official overseas tour.

While Meghan has been opting for pink recently, at Trooping the Colour, royal experts speculated on why numerous women in the royal family instead chose to go with a pale blue. Her stunning tiara, simple makeup look and, of course, the timeless gown by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy will surely go down in sartorial history books. As it became known, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sent out thank you letters straight from Kensington Palace.

The card - which has been sent to all of the couple's well-wishers - features a candid black and white photograph of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which was taken by royal photographer Alexi Lubomirski.
