The queen appeared in pink, wearing one of her iconic hats, and Markle wore a brown coat and a dark brown hat. The Daily Mail’s royal correspondent, Rebecca English, noted on Twitter that it’s one of the first times Markle has been out in a hat, and it will probably be the first time of many.

Hundreds of people gathered outside the Church of St Mary Magdalene to await Prince William, his wife the former Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and his fiance, Markle.
