For the occasion, she chose a cream-colored coat and dress by a very British brand, Amanda Wakeley. She coordinated with navy heels and a navy Mulberry bag, which she held as a clutch. Her fascinator is by Stephen Jones, reports Rebecca English, the royal correspondent for the Daily Mail.

The Crombie coat retails for $1,199 on Wakeley's website. The coat comes in black and midnight blue as well. The bag is the Small Darley and costs $675.


Designer Amanda Wakeley founded her brand in 1990, and Princess Diana was an early client. Markle's future sister-in-law Kate has worn Amanda Wakeley designs on several occasions.
