In their third official event (opens in new tab) of the year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) attended the Endeavour Fund gala (opens in new tab) in London Thursday evening—an award ceremony that celebrates wounded, injured, and sick men and women in service who have participated in sporting and adventure challenges over the past year.

Markle stunned (opens in new tab) at the reception in an Alexander McQueen trouser suit and Tuxe blouse—the first time we've seen Markle in anything besides her signature outfit (opens in new tab) of belted coats (opens in new tab), midi skirts, and (often) turtlenecks (opens in new tab).

The Endeavour Fund was originally launched in 2012 by Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry in part with their charity, The Royal Foundation (opens in new tab). It "offers seed funding for sporting and adventure challenges and helps emerging initiatives with advice, hands-on support, and mentoring—playing an important role in ensuring that more men and women in service have the opportunity to rediscover their self-belief and fighting spirit through physical challenges," according to the website (opens in new tab).

Prince Harry spent 10 years (opens in new tab) in the military and has been a public supporter of the service throughout the years. It's only fitting Markle would attend the gala alongside her fiancé, and she'll likely play a considerable role (opens in new tab) in the awards next year when she's officially a royal come May (opens in new tab).
