She is clearly completely confident about Meghan's level of confidence'.

While chatting to the Queen at the Royal Ascot on Tuesday, Meghan committed a faux pas by being momentarily distracted by Prince Harry and turning her back on the Queen to speak to him - a move which is generally considered to be rude while in her presence.

Markle (mostly) adhered to royal protocol, pairing a simple hat (at least, simple for the Royal Ascot, where women wear enormous butterfly bouquets on their heads) with a white Givenchy dress.

She said: 'The Queen is quite stoic, she didn't make a fuss of Meghan, which can make someone feel anxious.

The Countess of Wessex, was one of the only royal ladies to wear her name tag (and it clashed). Meghan has proven to be a big boost to the French luxury fashion brand now headed by British fashion designer Claire Waight Keller. This would cause Meghan to have the same designer dressing her for most of her royal events.

The Duchess of Sussex appears to have made a good impression with Her Majesty as she has been invited to join the Queen for a second engagement in the space of two weeks.

Donald Trump dismissed the uproar over the coat, suggesting the message was instead directed at the " Fake News Media ". Privately, she also encouraged her husband to abandon the policy, according to people familiar with the matter.

Edmondson added that she believes Meghan is trying to establish a sleek, modern style when it comes to hats but right now it needs a bit of "finessing".

"I am looking forward to seeing her hats at Royal Ascot should Meghan be attending, it will be a really opportunity to cement her style and test the waters of designs", Edmondson said.

Kate Middleton's sister-in-law looked stunning in a monochrome outfit for the famous day out with the Duke of Sussex.

During the event, Markle noticeably held her name tag in her hand, while her husband, Prince Harry, proudly pinned his badge on his lapel. This is usually a no-no for female members of the royal family.

The Duchess of Sussex was following Royal tradition.
