Meghan Markle  Updating on all things Sussex! Plus, Meghan’s outfit details here! I ❤️all my mini Marklettes! 🇺🇸🇬🇧 Est. Dec. 2017 FOLLOW:@duchess_catherine_middleton

The Duchess looked stunning in a black velvet one-shoulder, asymmetric gown by Clare Waight Keller. Meghan wore the $550 Tamara Mellon gold Karat sandals. The Duchess accessorised with gold jewellery by Canadian jeweller Pippa Small, including the Omeen Bangle and Wajiha Bangle. Meghan's £50 gold stud earrings are also made by artisans of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation.

Clare Waight Keller was completely taken aback admitting she was "shocked". She said: "I just saw her last week." The designer added she was "thrilled and honoured" before turning to Meghan and saying: "As part of my speech, you were in it. This woman is amazing and I got to know Meghan on such a personal level, and to have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life is something that is just the most unbelievable honour, and I can't thank you enough." It's been quite the year for both the Duchess and the talented designer. Their collaborative journey began in January when Meghan selected Waight Keller to design her wedding gown. "It was an extraordinary moment when she told me. Of course it's an incredible thing to be part of such a historic moment. I think she had very much seen my work and knew what I did. I think she loved the fact that I was a British designer, and working in a house such as Givenchy which has its roots in a very classical, beautiful style.

As Meghan walked on stage to cheering applause, she said: "It is such a pleasure to be here celebrating British fashion and British fashion designers in my new home of the UK. It's so nice to see so many familiar faces; many of you I've known for quite a while and a lot of you I've been able to meet in the past year, so thank you for the warm welcome." Meghan continued: "As all of you in this room know, we have a deep connection to what we wear. Sometimes it's very personal, sometimes it's emotional. But for me this connection is rooted in really being able to understand that it's about supporting and empowering each other, especially as women." The Duchess noted she recently read an article which said "the culture of fashion is shifting from where it was cool to be cruel to where it's cool to be kind. To that point, I feel especially proud to announce tonight's winner, who yes is a British designer leading on the global stage with vision and creativity, but also in incredible kindness, which is why when I met her for the first time eleven months ago, I knew that we'd be working very closely together".

The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the 2018 British Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall to present a very special award.
Meghan was thrilled to present Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller with the British Designer of the Year Womenswear Award.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a carol service at St Luke's, Chelsea, in support of the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which was set up in memory of a school friend of both Harry and William, who died in a tragic car crash in 2002. The stirring poem Meghan read includes a powerful opening: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure." In other news, Kensington Palace confirms the Duchess stepped out privately last night for the London stop of Michelle Obama's book tour for her memoir Becoming at the Southbank centre. After the event, they enjoyed a lengthy private meeting

The Duchess of Sussex joined university leaders, academics and international scholarship students for an event hosted by the Association of Commonwealth Universities at King's College London to discuss higher education opportunities for young people all over the world. Discussion focused on the role of universities in addressing human trafficking and modern slavery, gender equality and inclusion, peace and reconciliation, and climate change and resilience. Meghan's coat is the $350 Artizia Wilfred Cocoon Coat. She also wore the Hugo Boss Filonka Short-Sleeve Sweater.

The Duchess looked terrific in a burgundy outfit by Club Monaco. Meghan's dress is the Club Monaco Sallyet style. Meghan teamed the look with a pair of Givenchy Ankle Boots. Meghan accessorised with a 'Love' ring. Hubb means love in Arabic. It is the $70 Meredith Hahn Jamie Love ring.

Meghan helped prepare lunch. As always, the ladies enjoyed chatting and sharing stories whilst preparing food.

The Duchess of Sussex made an unannounced visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen this morning to see how the funds raised by Together: Our Community Cookbook are already making a difference.
During the launch event in September, Meghan described the project as "a labour of love". Over months of private visits and conversations, the Duchess forged a bond with the women of the Hubb. Struck by their courage, kindness and determination to rebuild their community following the horrific Grenfell Fire, Meghan knew her first solo project would involve supporting the Hubb. Earlier this month Russell Myers reported: "Meghan has struck up a “deep and personal friendship” with several women during secret visits to Hubb Community Kitchen, which helps families left destitute by the blaze. And she now “sees it as her personal duty to help the survivors” – and will help them for “as long as it takes”. A palace source said: “The Duchess has made regular private visits to the kitchen and to the women of Hubb and will continue to do so."

The Duchess wore an evening look by Safiyaa this evening. It appears to be a bespoke halterneck top and skirt. Meghan wore her Birks Snowstorm earrings.
