It was Meghan Markle’s first official event alongside the Queen of England at today’s Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey and her hat unequivocally stole the show.
Yes, Commonwealth Day – an opportunity for the 53 member states to come together – is one the the monarch’s most important celebrations. The Queen herself was there, so too was the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of York, the Princess Royal and Prime Minister Theresa May.
The royal favourites, Meghan Markle and fiance Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, were all in attendance…
But everyone was distracted, in magnificent fashion, by that hat, which should have received its own invitation and official title as well.

But perhaps the most touching notion, is that the hat was worn in tribute to the late Diana, Princess of Wales – Harry and William’s mother and Meghan’s would-be-mother-in-law.
Diana, too, was a fan of leading hats. And this particular beret atop Meghan’s head was created by one of Diana’s favourite designers, Stephen Jones, Time reports.
