Meghan Markle and Prince Harry (who now apparently prefers to be called just Harry) stepped out in London on Thursday, March 5, for the Endeavour Fund Awards looking like straight-up movie stars.

It marks Meghan’s first official appearance since announcing her and Harry’s decision to step back as senior members of the royal family in January.

For the occasion, Meghan beamed in a blue, short-sleeve pencil dress by Victoria Beckham paired with a black and white marble-printed clutch by Stella McCartney, according to Meghan’s Mirror. On her feet, she wore navy Manolo Blahnik heels (a staple of hers) and small, but chunky gold hoops.

Although it was raining, the duchess kept her hair and makeup in check under an umbrella. She sported a low, sleek pony tail with her signature center part, smokey eyeshadow and a sheer red lip gloss.

The couple was all smiles as they made their way to the event, which honors the achievements of wounded, injured and sick service members who had achieved major sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. Meghan gave out the Celebrating Excellence award.

The event is one of the royal couple’s final duties as the official Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Their last official appearance as senior members will take place on March 9.
