British Royal Family

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.
