Cue round two of the dress. Earlier today, Meghan Markle wore a boatneck long-sleeve wedding gown designed by Givenchy for her and Prince Harry's wedding ceremony. Afterwards, she changed into a bespoke lily white high-neck Stella McCartney gown for the evening reception at Frogmore House hosted by Prince Charles.
The pair look STUNNING if we do say so ourselves. Harry could be mistaken for James Bond in that tux. And Meghan is effortlessly chic, like a Bond girl, but more egalitarian.
The socially conscious newlyweds are driving to the reception in an electric Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero.

Here, Prince Harry, ever the gentleman, helps his new wife into the classic sports car for their ride:

Meghan switched her hair from an elegant chignon (sure to be the go-to bridal hair style for years to come) into a tight bun with face-framing layers—more appropriate for dancing—styled by George Northwood.
MarieClaire.com's exclusive royal wedding expert, Caroline Castigliano, originally predicted Meghan would choose "something quite slinky and sparkly—perhaps with little shoestring straps and a very low back, showing her figure. I think it'll be a really shimmering, beautiful evening dress that's quite sensual in its style." With the exception of shimmering, Castigliano was spot-on.
Though we won't get to see any pictures of Meghan and Harry inside the evening reception, you can hold yourself over by staring at all of the gorgeous pictures of Meghan in her ceremony gown below.
