The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have attended the first day of Royal Ascot, joining Queen Elizabeth II and several other members of the royal family for the annual horse racing event.
All eyes were on newlyweds Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36, who stole the show in an elegant cream and black ensemble by her wedding dress designer, Givenchy. Somewhat controversially, the new royal decided to forgo wearing a name tag, a requirement for the royal family, possibly due to her dress' delicate fabric.
The couple, who were coincidentally marking their one-month wedding anniversary looked completely in love as they enjoyed the prestigious UK equestrian event.

While it was a joy for royal watchers to see the royal family out-and-about, it was the family's newest addition, Meghan, who was the centre of attention. Meghan and Harry were in fits of laughter as they presented a trophy to jockey Frankie Dettori, who rode to victory on horse Without Parole in the St James's Palace Stakes.
The Italian jockey was delighted to receive his trophy from the Duchess. When he told Meghan his son would be "very pleased" when he learned who presented his father the cup, he said Meghan "kind of giggled".
The cheeky jockey even stole a kiss from Meghan, planting a smooch on her hand, while I laughing Harry was seen wagging his finger at the star jockey.
