Meghan Markle stood out from the crowd in a stylish Canadian-made ensemble at the Invictus Gamesopening ceremony on Saturday (Sept. 23). The Suits star, who was supporting her boyfriend Prince Harry at the launch of his Toronto-based event, looked beautiful in a tonal palette of autumnal burgundy and plum hues.

The 36-year-old wore a dress from one of her favourite Canadian stores for the occasion; a midi dress from Wilfred at Aritzia, which costs $185. The deep coloured burgundy chiffon dress features a wrap silhouette and full-pleated skirt.

Meghan styled the feminine dress with a co-ordinating leather moto jacket from Montreal-based label Mackage. The actress wore the soft wine-coloured jacket draped over her shoulders for an effortlessly cool look.

A tonal purple velvet clutch bag and pointed stiletto heels completed the outfit, with Meghan styling her glossy hair down in loose waves and adding smoky eye makeup for the perfect finishing touches.

Meghan's appearance at the Opening Ceremony is believed to be a further sign that an engagement is on the cards. Harry and Meghan, who have been quietly dating for just over a year, are expected to make an announcement before the year ends. Up until now, they have tried to keep their romance out of the public eye with only a few snatched pictures of them as a couple taken.

It seemed only natural that Meghan show her support for Harry at his Toronto-based event. The Suits actress is based in the city for her work, and, like her fellow co-stars, Meghan does not film on weekends. Earlier this month, the TV star acknowledged that she and Harry would "have to come forward and present ourselves" in the future; she also admitted that they are "two people who are really happy and in love".
