On September 25, Meghan Markle took on her very first solo engagement as a member of the royal family. The Duchess attended the opening of Oceania, a new exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

Meghan wore a black Givenchy dress with pumps by Aquazzura and a Givenchy clutch for the occasion. Givenchy has become one of the Duchess's favorite designers: the famed fashion house designed Meghan's gorgeous wedding dress, and the Duchess wore a Givenchy dress to Royal Ascot in June.

Many eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that the Duchess closed her own car door.

Oceania celebrates art from the Oceania region, featuring roughly 200 works from collections worldwide spanning a time period of over 500 years. Today, Meghan will see works from regions she will visit during her royal tour next month, including New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, and the Kingdom of Tonga.

While today marks Meghan's first solo engagement, she has already taken on her first independent project as a royal. Last week, Meghan announced Together, a charity cookbook she helped create that raises money for the Hubb Community Kitchen, a communal kitchen in West London. The kitchen started as a place where the victims of the Grenfell Tower Fires could prepare fresh food for their families. Meghan first visited the organization in January 2018, and started working on the project shortly after.

The Duchess formally launched the cookbook with an event at Kensington Palace last week, where she was joined by Prince Harry and her proud mom, Doria Ragland.
