How Meghan Markle’s Invictus Games Outfit Nods To Her Wedding Dress

Meghan Markle keeps the bridal vibes alive.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex traveled to Germany yesterday for the Invictus Games “Dusseldorf 2023 – One Year To Go” launch event, and eagle-eyed royal fashion fans may have noticed that Markle’s appearance was reminiscent of one of her 2018 wedding dresses.

With a white sleeveless halterneck sweater from Anine Bing ($229), the Duchess’ top looked just like the Stella McCartney dress she wore to the royal wedding reception.

While her loose-necked ceremony gown was a Clare Waight Keller creation of Givenchy, the new Duchess chose a sleek Stella McCartney silk crepe style for the reception with a halter neckline that resembled her ribbed Anine Bing tank.

Her German trip was a decidedly more casual affair, with the Duchess teaming her white halter top with Brandon Maxwell brown wide-leg pants ($1,295) and white pumps.

Her accessories for the Invictus event were also much more low-key than the dazzling jewels she wore to her wedding reception, including Cartier diamond earrings and a huge aquamarine ring that belonged to Princess Diana.

In Düsseldorf, she wore simple gold-plated CZ studs from Alexis Bittar ($85) along with Shiffon’s “1972 tennis” diamond pinky ring ($2,580-$280) stacked with the brand’s “Duet” pinky ring ($300-$855).

She also wore her favorite Cartier watch and the designer’s gold “Love” bracelet, along with a thinner gold bracelet.
