Meghan Markle takes a page from Duchess Kate's style book at Invictus Games reception

By Hola! USA

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were out in style as they kicked off another busy weekend on Saturday (April 21), attending a reception for this year's Sydney Invictus Games in London. The former Suits star wowed fans in a gorgeous green midi dress by celebrity-loved brand Self-Portrait, which sells for $675. She paired the cold shoulder number with black pumps, Birks earrings and a piece that caught the attention of savvy fashionistas - her Alexander McQueen blazer, the first piece the 36-year-old has recycled for a public appearance.

The May bride took a page from her future sister-in-law Kate's style book, a savvy royal who's regularly re-wears pieces from her wardrobe. She originally wore the piece publicly for her first official evening engagement with Prince Harry back in February - the Endeavor Awards, which honored servicemen and women. Alexander McQueen is a favourite label of the Duchess of Cambridge and the designer behind her wedding gown. There have also been rumours that McQueen may helm Meghan's nuptial look.

At the reception, which was hosted by Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball and his wife, Lucy Turnball, the couple learned more about how plans are progressing for this year's Games. They also met with a number of UK and Australian servicemen and women, some of whom have experience competing in the international event. Both Harry and Meghan were recently in Bath where they watched the UK team trials for the year's coming tournament. The Saturday event held a particularly special meaning for the happy couple, as they build up to their summer wedding. Royal fans will remember the pair making their very first public appearance together at the 2017 Invictus Games.
