Meghan and Harry to join Queen at Royal Ascot

After months of speculation, it's been confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will jet into Dublin on July 10.

Thomas Markle admitted to staging paparazzi pictures before his daughter Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in May, and he wasn't there on the big day to celebrate.

And as they prepared to present jockey Frankie Dettori with his prize, Harry struggled to leave Meghan.

He added: "Well, we live to fight another day and hopefully we can win back our loses tomorrow, our early favourite is pink at 9-4".

For the outing, Meghan wore the earrings, paired perfectly with a peach coloured, black belted Givenchy dress.

The Duchess was wearing a long cream shirt dress, with embroidery detail and a handkerchief hem, with a black belt, and chose black heels for the event. And who else would design it but her favorite fashion house, Givenchy - a brand that Hepburn helped put on the map?
