Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been out and about a lot lately, charming fans everywhere they go. Now Markle is once again in the spotlight thanks to the graceful way she handled a snafu at an awards ceremony.
On Feb. 1, Markle took the stage to present an award at the Endeavor Fund Awards, an event that honors wounded, sick and injured service members who have taken part in remarkable sporting and event challenges over the last year. The Endeavor Fund is part of the The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry and provides seed funding for sporting and adventures challenges, and assists emerging initiatives with advice, hands-on support and mentoring.
When there was a mix-up at the podium with her co-presenter’s notes, Markle laughed it off and helped him find his place. She made sure that the show went on and never lost her cool. Check out the incident in the video below, posted by BBC News:

Markle also caught attention for her outfit that evening. The royal-to-be wore cropped, black cigarette trousers paired with a tuxedo shirt by designer Alexander McQueen. The slim-fitting suit was worn with a cream blouse and stiletto heels. The chic ensemble was seen as an unconventional look for a formal event, as a dress would have been considered a more typical choice.
Markle is known for being stylish. Just look at the couple’s beautiful engagement photos:
Markle’s bold look drew praise from some, like Ashley Spencer, editor of Australian entertainment site The Fix, who said she loved the outfit:

Not everyone was thrilled with the unique fashion choice, however. Rebecca English, the royal correspondent for the Daily Mail, took to Twitter to say she was disappointed that Markle wasn’t wearing a dress:

This is not the first time that Markle has drawn attention for her style. Which is unsurprising, as she has already made her mark as a fashionista. We can’t wait to see what she does (and wears!) next!
