In the TV show, Suits, we’re used to seeing Meghan Markle as a power dresser, and now she's donning a sharp two-piece textured-crepe midi skirt suit by Emilia Wickstead. For a scheduled appearance to the ANZAC Day service at Westminster Abbey, Meghan teamed her bespoke black suit with a Philip Treacy pillbox-style hat and looked absolutely stunning.

Avid royal fans will know that these are two brands the Duchess of Cambridge absolutely loves - are we right in thinking that Kate is Meghan's secret style advisor? Kate has worn Emilia Wickstead countless times, perhaps she suggested the British designer to the Hollywood star.

Talking to HELLO!, Emilia Wickstead said: "The most wonderful thing about having a small business is that every person we dress gets a really intimate process. When you are dressing someone who is in the limelight, often you're working with their stylist, who has chosen you because your tastes are on par with their client. You’re working together to create something that is very beautiful for a particular event or occasion."

Of Kate, Emilia said: "[Kate] is a great brand ambassador for British designers, and it’s such an honour and privilege to think she would like to wear your clothing."

Meghan teamed her ensemble with a metallic Jimmy Choo clutch with gold edges and her trusty black stilettos. Her hair was sleeker than usual, and she had a touch of pink gloss on her lips.

It has been a busy day for the bride-to-be - and we're not talking wedding planning. She had an early start as she attended a dawn service to commemorate ANZAC Day. The 36-year-old joined Prince Harry at 5am at Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner, dressed in a full-length grey Smythe coat, black hat and matching shoes. Both she and Harry wore poppies on their lapels, while Harry's coat was also adorned with his military medals.

This is the couple's second engagement of the week. On Monday, they attended a Memorial Service to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence and to celebrate his life and legacy. Meghan once again dressed impeccably for the sombre event, with the 36-year-old opting to wear a navy dress by Hugo Boss. She teamed the belted-dress with nude high heel shoes, while her long brown hair looked elegant tied back.
