Duchess of Sussex in Ralph Lauren for Prince Louis's christening

Duchess of Sussex in Ralph Lauren for Prince Louis's christening

However neither Prince Harry nor Meghan were named among Louis' six godparents, with the honour going to Guy Pelly, who was once dubbed the "court jester", family friend Nicholas van Cutsem and William's school pal Harry Aubrey-Fletcher. Meghan wore an olive green Ralph Lauren belted midi dress - with three-quarter sleeves and her favourite bateau neckline - which she teamed with a gorgeous matching hat by Stephen Jones and pointed Manolo Blahnik heels.

She also debuted a certain "royal" item she has not carried since becoming a Duchess in May - a pair of gloves.

He may have been too young to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent royal wedding on May 19, but Prince Louis was out for the world to see today, during his royal christening at The Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace in London. She also carried matching olive green gloves and a clutch.

'Meghan always took it a step further, not just distributing food but learning people's names, learning their stories.


Gloves are reportedly worn to protect her hands from dirt and damage when continuously shaking hands all day long.

The last time Meghan was spotted at a public engagement in gloves was with the royal family on Christmas day, but these were presumable to shield her hands from the cold weather.

To those who have heard Meghan speak recently, especially since her marriage to Prince Harry, she's acquiring certain vocal characteristics of a British accent. Because Markle rarely goes there (see: her typical pastel palette), and we're all for it.

The couple will see the Book of Kells at Trinity College Dublin and will visit the city's starvation memorial. A video of the former American actress conversing with well-wishers during her June trip to Cheshire has surfaced leading many to wonder if the Suits alum is losing her American accent.
