Meghan Markle recycled a $1,995 Alexander McQueen jacket


Prince Harry and fiancé Meghan Markle, took a break from counting down the days to their wedding, and stepped out on Saturday to a special Invictus Games reception in honor of the upcoming games in Sydney.

Markle wore a dress in a deep emerald green with a black and white floral print from Self Portrait, covering her arms with an Alexander McQueen black blazer. She added simple black pumps and a black purse, completing the look. She wore her deep brunette locks parted down the center with soft waves.

At the event, hosted by Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball and his wife, Lucy Turnball, Markle and the prince heard more about plans for this year's Invictus Games in October.

She first wore the McQueen blazer paired with matching black pants at her first official evening engagement with Prince Harry back in February at the Endeavor Awards.

Royal watchers will note that Markle is taking two royal style tips from her future sister-in-law Kate Middleton, who is currently anticipating the birth of her third child.

Middleton famously wed Prince William in a gorgeous bespoke Alexander McQueen gown, that set trends and inspired copycat styles around the world. The house remains one of the future queen's go-to designers, and she has worn their looks to many major events.

And she's also known for recycling looks at public events, which is something almost all of us do (sometimes weekly!), which has endeared her to the public. In the past it was unheard of for royals to wear the same look more than once.

Markle recently landed a spot on Time magazinze's list of "100 Most Influential People," with actor and friend Priyanka Chopra penning a touching tribute, calling the future royal "a princess for the people." A title, no doubt, meant to recall that of Princess Diana, known as "the People's Princess."

Harry also landed a spot on Time's list of influencers, with Sir Elton John, who's known him since he was a little boy, writing a glowing tribute. "What a joy it has been to see that young boy grow to inherit his mother's warmth, sense of humor and courage to stand up and champion the causes he truly believes in," he wrote, going on to list the many causes important to Harry, including the Invictus Games, the global AIDS crisis, and mental health.

Trevor Noah's take on the royal wedding is too real for some people

Luckily for The Daily Show's Trevor Noah, his standup date in London overlapped with the royal wedding. This gave the Johannesburg-born comedian plenty of material to work with, and his take on racial and social implications of the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was spot on - especially since he probably wrote most of the jokes that day. Noah delivered an extended explanation of how the wedding would have gone if it was "a real black wedding," which included an impression of a Nigerian uncle who would have ridden in the carriage with the couple, reminding them he paid for it.
