Meghan Markle’s outfit at first official evening event sparks debate for breaking tradition

Meghan Markle's Alexander McQueen tuxedo-inspired separates sparked debate for breaking tradition at her first official evening event.

Meghan Markle made her first official evening debut as a soon-to-be royal, attending the Endeavor Fund Awards in London with fiance Prince Harry Thursday night. While the actress has been known to turn heads for her unlikely fashion choices in the past, her outfit for the evening’s formal event sparked debate for breaking customary royal protocol.

The former “Suits” star wore none other than a suit to a gala at Goldsmiths’ Hall celebrating “the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year,” according to The Royal Foundation.

Markle’s tailored separates surprised many, who were expecting her to wear a more traditional dress for the occasion. Instead, she chose a tuxedo-inspired black Alexander McQueen blazer and cropped trousers, along with a Tuxe Bodysuit blouse, Manolo Blahnik heels and Prada clutch, Vogue U.K. reported.
