The Duchess of Sussex has been showing off her most regal looks since officially joining the royal family in May, but today, Meghan Markle dressed casually (opens in new tab) at the Audi Polo Challenge.

The royal was spotted at the event again today, looking decidedly casual, but still totally chic. For her Sunday trip to Ascot, Meghan wore a simple white shirt (opens in new tab) by J.Crew (opens in new tab), which she paired with with black capri pants and black flats. She was also seen carrying the Madewell hat that she wore to the polo match yesterday (opens in new tab). There are several pictures of Meghan's laidback look on Express (opens in new tab).

This marks the first time Meghan has been spotted out in public wearing pants since she officially became a member of the royal family. While Meghan looks amazing in dresses and skirts (opens in new tab), the former Suits star (opens in new tab) also looks incredible in a good suit (or any pair of pants, really). In February, Meghan stunned in a suit at the Endeavour Fund Awards' Ceremony at Goldsmiths' Hall in London.

Since her wedding in May, Meghan has stuck mostly to shades (opens in new tab) of white, cream, and blush pink during official public appearances. While today's look sticks with a neutral palette, the black capris might mark the end of Meghan's honeymoon fashion phase.

"Romance is soft, like a neutral palette—she is a newlywed after all," Guilia Papailias, styling expert at Beaumont Etiquette (opens in new tab), told Harper's Bazaar UK (opens in new tab) of Meghan's recent fashion choices. "Meghan continues to give us the fairytale that we became enamored with the first day we saw her walk up those stairs. She continues the magic."
