The Duke and Duchess of Sussex presented the winning trophy for the 4.20pm race, the St James' Palace Stakes.

Meghan arrived by carriage with Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.

Also in attendance were Prince Charles and wife Camilla Parker Bowles as well as the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

For Ascot, Meghan paired her white dress with black accents in the form of a thin belt that looped around the embroidered waist of the design, as well as a hat that boasted black netting and a leather bow.

She's officially a royal now!

Markle opted for an understated white silk belted silk dress by Givenchy, her favourite go-to designer.

If you're waiting to see what Duchess Kate wore, don't hold your breath: Prince William had a conflicting event in Liverpool, so they skipped this year.
