It was a royal first for Duchess Meghan on Thursday morning when she attended her first Field of Remembrance event at London's Westminster Abbey with husband  Prince Harry Meghan looked stunning dressed in a chic navy blue, textured coat which she teamed with an equally sophisticated navy hat by Philip Treacy and slouchy black boots. The royal completed her look with some simple earrings and also wore leather gloves.

It was Prince Harry's seventh time at the Field of Remembrance event, which has been held in the grounds of Westminster Abbey since November 1928. The event is organised by The Poppy Factory who produce around 70,000 crosses a year, planted on over 360 plots for regimental and other associations. Ex-servicemen and women and members of the public can plant a cross carrying a personal message in memory of those who have lost their lives in the service of others.

Harry and Meghan each laid a Cross of Remembrance and observed a two-minute silence, followed by a visit to the plots. Meghan looked to be in good spirits as she chatted with veterans from the armed forces during the event.

The Duchess went for a pretty beauty look, wearing her hair in a classic waved style and opting for glossy yet minimal makeup. Meghan and Harry's baby boy Archie Harrison turned sixth months old the previous day.
