Remember back when every Kate Middleton appearance sent the public into fashion meltdown?

Well, those days are over.

Because the only accidental fashion icon we care about these days is Meghan Markle, who today made her ‘working debut’ alongside Price Harry, Wills and Kate.

The ‘Fab Four’ is currently at the inaugural Royal Foundation Forum in London, with Megan answering questions about the charitable endeavours of the young royals – including mental health initiative Heads Together and Harry’s Invictus Games.

And, although she’s more than what she wears (especially at this event which is dealing with some pretty hefty social issues), we’re all keen to see what she’s turned up in.

So here it is:

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 28: Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attend the first annual Royal Foundation Forum held at Aviva on February 28, 2018 in London, England. Under the theme 'Making a Difference Together', the event will showcase the programmes run or initiated by The Royal Foundation. (Photo by Chris Jackson - WPA Pool/Getty Images)

The epitome of understated cool, she’s wearing a shin-grazing, sleeveless navy dress by Jason Wu.

Forgetting that there’s actual snow outside, Meghan’s opted for a wrap-around scenario, complete with low v-neck and over-size lapels – not unlike a trenchcoat.

And yes, we obviously want it too.

AND YOU CAN GET IT HERE (if you have a spare £1,415).

Nothing says ‘I take chauffered cars’ quite like a sleeveless wrap dress in -2’C, amber weather warning conditions. And yet, Meghan manages to make it look like just another everyday fashion choice (navy is such a winner for that kinda vibe).

Meghan is going to be the fourth patron of the Foundation, which was launched in 2011.
