In great royal tradition, we were treated to not one, but TWO wedding dresses from Meghan today – the second gown coming out for the private evening reception at Frogmore House. We caught a glimpse of Meghan leaving with Harry in a Jaguar in her evening dress. For all the details on her ceremony dress, click here.
Meghan’s dress is by bespoke by Stella McCartney. The dress is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. The Bride also wore shoes from Aquazzura made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue. The shoes were bespoke, with Edgardo Osorio, the shoe designer, saying:
“It has been an incredible experience to have had the opportunity to design a bespoke shoe for Meghan’s wedding reception. I am deeply honoured to have been chosen for this special occasion and extremely pleased with the creation.”
Meghan wore a beautiful Stella McCartney dress for the evening engagement. Stella shared a sketch of the dress.
Here’s what Stella had to say about the look:
“I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design. It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career and I am so proud of all the team on this stunning sunny royal day.”
One of the first things we noticed was that Meghan was wearing a large aquamarine ring on her right hand – and quickly realized it was actually Princess Diana’s Aquamarine ring which must have been gifted to Meghan from Harry. It makes for a touching way to honour his mother and a beautiful piece of jewelry for Meghan to have in her new royal collection.
Diana’s Aquamarine ring, an emerald cut aquamarine flanked by small, solitaire diamonds and set in 24-carat yellow gold, was commissioned by the Princess from Asprey in 1997.
She also debuted a new pair of earrings, which are the matching pair to the bracelet she wore this morning by Cartier – the Reflection de Cartier earrings. The earrings are believed to be a wedding gift from Prince Charles to Meghan.

Stunning beyond belief! The images of Meghan and Harry getting into the Jaguar are so beyond expectations. They put James Bond to shame. So sexy and sophisticated. I’m hoping the dangling earrings match the Cartier bracelet from the ceremony. The royal family an amazing history of parure sets of jewels and this would be all Meghans. Can’t wait to find out.

Well now I can’t decide which dress I like better! The evening wedding dress has a modern cut with a nice neckline detail again. I love the detail on the shoes.
I like that she kept the hair up with the earing change. She and Harry look simply dashing in the photo in the blue car. WOW
Oh for the love of god can these two be anymore perfect?! I mean really, her wedding dress and Harry’s uniform were perfection and now this!!!! Harry and Meghan have now entered the realm of the immortals, where most of us can never hope to enter, at least not looking like that!! Forgive me for being crass but in the second photo the look in Harry’s eyes tells me that he’d much rather be taking Meghan someplace, anyplace for a bit of ummm…er…alone time, than to a party!!
This dress is perfection! I love the contrast between her minimal, sleek, slighty conservative wedding dress and this sexy number! This is full on Meghan Sparkle!
OMG I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO FASHION HEAVEN!! (I’ve also been on the vino, toasting the happy couple you understand) Stella made the grade after all!!
Here in a single outfit Meghan has ripped up the royal rulebook and done sweet hot glamour with just enough discretion to keep it royal. That wicked halterneck and those very bare shoulders, smokin’ hot!! (The dear only knows how much skin there might be at the back)
The McCartney genius for mastery of fabric sees the skirt flaring into a full fluted hem, with as much dreamy swish as any newly wed could desire. Simply superb, sensational. New hubby looks yet more smitten. Beautiful updo and a what a sparkler on her finger!!
LOL, I love ya Bertie!!! I’ve been “sipping” champagne and toasting all day myself!
I don’t know much about Stella’s designs but wow, she really outdid herself with this sexy yet regal number! Meghan really does have the perfect figure and great shoulders/arms to carry this look (where are my arm weights?!) and of course she has the certain something that means she can wear just about anything and look gorgeous! Her hair with these earrings, wow, just wow! And the addition of Diana’s aquamarine ring is perfect! No shade to Kate but this ring is so suited to Meghan, I’m glad Harry gave it to her.
Different women, different rings suit, I guess. You hit it on the nail when you say Meghan can wear so many styles. She can risk a bit of Hollywood glamour without looking foolish where Kate does English rose to a tee

I am dying over this. Her ring perfectly matches the car and the soles of her shoes even. So amazing. Every detail is perfect. A total win for the day!
Jill Hillers says
Duke and Duchess of Sussex: LOVE FROM HEAVEN! GOD BLESS YOU, ROYAL AMBASSADORS OF THE NEW GENERATION WORLDWIDE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR WONDERFUL ROYAL WEDDING GRACEFULLY WITH US.
SECOND LOOK SLAY!!!! OMG Meghan and Harry are literally untouchable!!! I adore this second look for Meghan, she is exquisite! Their pure love is just glowing here, they are on top of the world! I’m so glad Stella made it to the royal wedding, I wish we could see a picture of the back, the sketches show it was a low back! This is the perfect amount of dignified sexy!
I’m so sad the wedding is over, but can’t wait to see what these two do next!
