Meghan Markle hasn't been the Duchess of Sussex for long, but she quickly established that neutral tones were going to be her signature color. From her first solo outing with the queen to her most recent outing at the Young Leaders Awards Ceremony, the new royal has stunned in blush pinks, creams, and whites.
But she threw a curveball with her canary yellow dress. In a nod to her motherland's Fourth of July celebrations, she chose to wear American designer Brandon Maxwell's creation, which featured a high, straight neckline, no sleeves, and a shin-grazing hem.

She accessorized with Manolo Blahnik "BB Pumps" in nude suede and a pair of diamond earrings by Adina Reyter, looking like a dream from head to toe.

The couple were attending the Your Commonwealth Youth Challenge reception at Marlborough House in London where they were introduced to youngsters across the Commonwealth. Kids from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga — countries Harry and Meghan will visit on their royal tour later this year — listened to the prince's speech on the future and their role in shaping it.
Meghan's royal wardrobe was the talk of the town earlier this week thanks to the steep price tag. According to Entertainment Tonight, Meghan has spent $1 million on clothes since joining the royal family.
As much as we love the duchess in her iconic neutral shades, we adore this flash of unabashed color.
