Everyone - fashion guru or not - was waiting for this moment, and it certainly didn't disappoint! Meghan Markle made her debut appearance at the royal's traditional Christmas Day church service at Sandringham, looking as stylish as ever in a camel coat by luxury Canadian brand Sentaler, which is made from baby alpaca wool and sells for £986 on the company's website. The Suits actress completed her festive ensemble with a brown hat and matching brown boots and a Chloe 'Pixie' bag, which sells for $2383, while her brunette hair was styled to perfection. Meghan officially joined the royal family last Wednesday (Dec. 20), when she attended the Queen's Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.


The stylish royal bride-to-be has made a name for herself as a fashion icon of late, and as soon as she steps out in an outfit, sales rocket. To the lunch, she stepped out in a stunning lace dress by Self Portrait. The Nightshade Midi design featured guipure lace short-sleeved bodice with black collar. The lace top is fitted to a black A-line skirt with a grosgrain waistband and flows to the calves, and retails for $511 online.

In November last year, meanwhile, Meghan's future sister-in-law Kate dressed in a contrasting design by the same label. She looked lovely in a white floor-length gown to the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob. The $545 design had a white crochet bodice and a long flowy skirt with a thigh-high slit.

Earlier in the day, those who stayed over at Sandringham will have enjoyed a full English breakfast, and will have woken to find stockings filled with small gifts and fruit at the foot of their beds. After the service, the royal family will carry out a small, informal walkabout to greet members of the public. This will be followed by a sit-down lunch of roast turkey and all the trimmings at Sandringham House. A walk around the estate follows, before they gather around to watch the Queen's Christmas speech at 3 p.m.
