Meghan Markle Spent Her Birthday at a Wedding, Wearing One of Her Favorite Pumps

For her first birthday as a royal, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, spent the morning celebrating love.

Seen arriving at the St. Mary the Virgin Church, the 37-year-old was there to support her husband Prince Harry, who served as best man for friends Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks, who were tying the knot.

For the occasion, the American-bred Leo wore a belted Club Monaco dress complete with an airy skirt of color-blocked pleats. To accessorize, she focused on the essentials, including a hat from London-based milliner Philip Treacy, a black Kayu clutch and a gold bracelet from jeweler Shaun Leane. To complete her look, Markle chose Aquazzura black pumps with a pointed toe, cutout heel detail and elegant bow at the back.

While more examples of Markle’s wedding style are sure to appear in the future, we can predict that her selections will continue to reflect her demure sartorial sense as well as her favorite designers, such as Philip Tracey and Aquazzura. Markle recently wore the aforementioned accessory brands with a long-sleeve cocktail dress from Oscar de la Renta while attending the wedding of Princess Diana’s niece, Celia McCorquodale and George Woodhouse.

When it comes to the rest of Markle’s plans for the day, they appear to be under wraps. However, the royal family did make a public show of adoration by posting moments and sweet messages to the birthday girl on their social media pages. The well-wishers included Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip; her father-in-law, Prince Charles; and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
