Is This Dress Meghan Markle's Response to Her Off-the-Shoulder Controversy?

See what the newlywed royal wore for her first solo engagement with the Queen.

By Adele Chapin

Meghan Markle and the fashion house of Givenchy are on the best of terms: The newly-appointed Duchess of Sussex turned to the brand that designed her unforgettable wedding gown for a look for another very important day. For her first solo public engagement with Queen Elizabeth this morning, Markle wore a custom beige belted Givenchy sheath with an intriguing twist. The dress includes a cape top for a dramatic silhouette. 

Markle seems to love this neutral color palette lately, and it's not the first time Markle's worn a cape dress. She opted for a billowing black Stella McCartney cape dress in April. Is it just a coincidence, though, that the Duchess of Sussex chose this very-covered-up dress for the queen, in light of the faux controversy over whether her off-the-shoulder dress from last weekend was too revealing? This Givenchy cape is the exact opposite of the off-the-shoulder trend.

This outfit is incredibly polished regardless, and it looks like the newlywed followed the Queen's ever-important royal style rules too, stockings and all!
