The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in style at Central Hall Westminster for a charity concert in support of military veterans on Thursday.

For the couple’s second royal engagement of the week, Meghan Markle ditched her power suit streak in favour of a royal blue midi dress by Jason Wu.

The custom-made number features waterfall-effect panelling down the bodice and a subtle split in the skirt.

In terms of accessories, the 37-year-old added a pair of AU$1,150 bejewelled Aquazurra heels and recycled her go-to bespoke clutch by Dior.

In a surprising move, the former actress decided against her now-trademark messy bun in favour of Duchess-worthy curls reminiscent of the ones Kate Middleton is famous for.

But there was one detail in her look that captured a lot of attention on Twitter; the ruffles over her stomach.

The evening of music titled ‘100 Days to Peace’ was held to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War and all proceeds from the event go to mental health charities.A highlight of the gala was a performance of world-famous composer Sir Karl Jenkins’ internationally-acclaimed: ‘The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace’.

The Royal Choral Society and the Philharmonia Orchestra performed the song with a solo by Kathryn Rudge played against a backdrop of Hefin Owen’s film, ‘The Armed Man’.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were last spotted at the WellChild Awards which celebrates the inspirational courage shown by seriously ill children across the UK.

For the annual ceremony, the Duchess continued her power suit streak in a co-ord by Altuzarra accessorised with a Stella McCartney clutch and silk blouse by Swedish label, Deitas.
