Meghan Markle has been famous for her sense of style (opens in new tab) much longer than she's been a member of the royal family, but her royal wardrobe has been jaw-dropping.

As Harper's Bazaar UK (opens in new tab) points out, since becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan stuck to a very specific color palette. She's only worn light shades of white, blush, and cream to her official engagements.

And now, for the photographic proof. For her first post-wedding engagement, Prince Charles' birthday party, at Buckingham Palace, Meghan stepped out wearing a nude Goat dress and matching accessories.

Meghan's next appearance was at the Trooping the Colour (opens in new tab) parade, where she wore an off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress and a matching Philip Treacy hat.

The next time fans saw Meghan out in public was in Cheshire, during her first-ever solo engagement with the Queen (opens in new tab). For the momentous occasion, Meghan wore a custom-made, cream Givenchy dress.

At her Royal Ascot debut (opens in new tab), Meghan wore a white shirt dress by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, along with an amazing hat.

Then, for her most recent appearance, at the Queen's Young Leaders Awards at Buckingham Palace (opens in new tab), Meghan opted for a blush pink Prada skirt suit.

Of course, there was one notable exception to Meghan's new color palette rule: Celia McCorquodale's wedding (opens in new tab). She wore a blue, floral Oscar de le Renta dress to Prince Harry's cousins wedding. As Harper's Bazaar UK points out, of course, the wedding was technically a private event and not an official royal engagement, so Meghan hasn't broken her streak at official outings.

"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 of Meghan's current style obsession. "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."
