All About the Suit Meghan Markle Wore to the Endeavour Fund Awards
Meghan Markle wore an Alexander McQueen suit to the annual Endeavour Fund Awards on February 1 at Goldsmiths' Hall in London for her first formal event with her fiancé Prince Harry.
While many expected her to wear a gown to the black-tie event, the future royal surprised everyone by choosing a black ankle-length pantsuit from Alexander McQueen—a favorite of Duchess Kate's (the brand's designer, Sarah Burton, created Kate's wedding dress and the Duchess is wearing a McQueen gown in Oslo this evening)—instead. She paired the polished look with a white bow bodysuit by Tuxe, the Daily Mail reports, along with pointed black heels and a Prada clutch.
And while the tuxedo-like suit is attention-getting—female members of the royal family rarely wear pants to official events and almost never do so in the evening—the photos of the sharply-tailored suit aren't likely to become Markle's iconic fashion moment. That after all, is probably coming up in May and she doesn't want to steal her own thunder.
Before the evening's ceremony, Meghan and Harry met some of the nominees who were up for the three awards. The Endeavour Fund Awards are an annual ceremony thrown to celebrate the achievements of wounded and sick servicemen and women who have participated in sporting and adventure challenges to aid their recovery in the past year.
The Endeavour Fund is a project led by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
