Her dress, although casual and simple in its shirt-style tailoring, was rich in detail with subtle embroidery around the waist and was finished off with fine white buttons.

Due to health complications, Markle unfortunately had to back out of walking his daughter down the aisle at her royal wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.

Thousands of racegoers cheered and applauded from the stands as the Queen's carriage led the procession down the course.

In My Fair Lady, Cockney flower-seller Eliza Doolittle - played by Audrey Hepburn - wears a frilly white gown with black and white bows and matching hat as she accompanies Professor Henry Higgins to Ascot while he attempts to teach her to speak properly.

It has been a busy month for Meghan Markle, from her wedding to her first official engagements as the Duchess of Sussex.

Trump Administration to Announce US Withdrawal From UN Human Rights Council
Critics say this sends a message that the administration turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in some parts of the world. The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo , appearing alongside Haley, said: "Too many commitments have gone unfulfilled".

Prince Harry was kitted out in a top hat and tails.

According to Lucas Armitage, celebrity stylist and royal commentator, Markle's recent obsession with neutrals is a way for her to show her respect to Queen Elizabeth II who is known for her bright and colorful outfits.

The event, which concludes on June 23, will also feature Meghan and Prince Harry presenting the winning trophy for the St. James's Palace Stakes - with a $9.7 million (US) prize pot, the largest pot in the United Kingdom.

In fairness, the inside story did describe the dress as "pitch perfect" for the occasion, suggesting women will take inspiration from the look for the upcoming season at Ascot, the English equivalent of the spring racing carnival (with larger hats).

Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Givenchy who designed the dress for the formal wedding, carriage ride and daytime reception, said previously: "I think every bride is unique".

It has now been reported that the Duchess of Sussex's dad was reportedly paid £7,500 for the tell-all interview. At that point she said, "It's Harry".

"Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries' respective governments", Kensington Palace said in a statement at the time.

Shallow natural disaster kills three in Japan, including nine-year-old girl
