Meghan Markle wears Givenchy for her first Royal Ascot outing

Thomas Markle admitted to staging paparazzi pictures before his daughter Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in May, and he wasn't there on the big day to celebrate.

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.

Markle wore Givenchy to her first Royal Ascot.

The Duchess of Sussex made a dazzling debut at the Royal Ascot looking every bit as pretty as Audrey Hepburn from My Fair Lady.

Despite the more demure, and dare-we say underwhelming outfit choice, Markle will undoubtedly be a stand-out as she joins Prince Harry to make the trophy presentations for the day's fourth race, the St. James Palace Stakes.

He added he would listen to the government but "I hope they listen to me when I say I don't understand why you've done this last-minute switch".

And while the Duchess of Sussex stunned in a monochrome ensemble designed by Givenchy, Meghan's husband Harry was left red in the face after jockey Frankie Dettori jokingly stole a kiss from her.

The Duke of Sussex helped show his wife the ropes as he presented her the programme and was later seen showing her how the presentation process works.

Meghan carried out her first official solo engagement alongside the Queen last week where they opened a new toll bridge in the northwest United Kingdom county of Cheshire. Meghan's go-to style is a result of the "Audrey Brow" treatment, which is named after one of her favorite style inspirations - the original queen of the power brow - Audrey Hepburn. Their appearance at the eagerly anticipated race event came hours after Kensington Palace announced that their first official overseas trip as a couple would be to Dublin, in July.

Though Thomas Markle has not met Prince Harry face to face, they talk politics on phone and he thinks that the Prince is "very nice man, gentleman, and very likable".

Royal sources told English that the Palace and couple have done everything they can to help and guide Thomas, but "he is a proud man who finds it hard to accept assistance from his daughter".
