The couple arrived at the reception at Marlborough House in London hand in hand, despite royal fans speculation that they may have stopped doing so following their marriage.
Meghan popped in a £1,300 bright yellow dress by designer Brandon Maxwell who has worked as Lady Gaga’s stylist since 2012.
And while the Duchess has opted for sleek blow dries for her engagements of late, tonight she opted for her previously favoured hairstyle of a bun – though she had opted for a sleeker style over her iconic ‘messy’ updo.
Prince Harry, meanwhile, looked his dapper best in a navy blue suit complete with an olive green tie as he accompanied his wife into the reception.
The couple received a warm welcome from Patricia Scotland who greeted them at their cars. As they made their way towards the house they were treated to a musical performance by a steel pan band.
The delighted duke and duchess paused to give the band a round of applause following their performance.
They continued to put on a tactile display as they assembled on the steps of the house as Meghan put a tentative hand on her husband’s arm.
And they urged youth leaders from across the Commonwealth to fight against injustice, inequality and environmental damage.
