She accessorised with dramatic chandelier earrings and Celeste 105 crystal-embellished leather sandals from AQUAZZURA, adding a gorgeous smokey eye, glowy blush and timeless nude lip to finish her look.

VOGUE reported Meghan's goddess gown was crafted in a shade the designer calls 'Cunningham Blue'. He said: "[It] is always really exciting being able to use colour, and lots of different shades of the same colour, to create some sort of graphicism, which is signature to me. It’s something that feels fresh and right for now."

The Sussexes' Archewell Foundation is supporting a new NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, which recognises leaders creating "transformational change at the intersection of social justice and technology".

"This community knows what it means to speak up for what is right and to march forward is just," added Harry. "As the fight for justice for justice still remains, it's time to extend this march to the world online, a place where hate and discrimination are fuelled instantly, propagated globally and felt deeply."
