Meghan Markle wears semi-sheer dress to Queen's Christmas lunch

Meghan Markle wears semi-sheer dress to Queen's Christmas lunch

Similar to her future sister-in-law, who opted for a thin line of black eyeliner on her wedding day, we suspect Markle won't deviate too far from her everyday make-up and choose a soft smokey eye for the occasion.

Prince Harry looked proud as punch as he drove through the gates of Buckingham Palace today, with new fiancée Meghan Markle in the passenger seat.

Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall arrive at the Royal Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace in London, Dec. 20, 2017.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family".

Meghan was spotted arriving at the Christmas lunch with her fiancé Prince Harry at the wheel of a Land Rover Discovery.

Wedding dress sketches by Israeli designer Inbal Dror were intercepted by TMZ on Monday: long sleeved, body hugging ensembles that are crowned with what looks like the idea of a hat.

French bill banning fossil fuel exploration passes in parliament
An announcement in this regard was made by French Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot in an interview with RTL radio station. But while France's bold bans are certainly historic, they are also largely symbolic.

After much speculation of how the newly engaged pair would celebrate Christmas, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace confirmed they will all be at Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate, which requires a black tie dress code and no exchanging of gifts.

Members of the extended family at the Palace today included the Queen's cousin Prince Michael of Kent who arrived with his daughter Lady Gabriella Windsor and his wife Princess Michael. "It was a good opportunity for her to get to know the close part of the family as it were", a family friend shared with PEOPLE. This is a major milestone, as this will be the first royal fiancée to spend Christmas with the royal family.

The royals were also joined by their extended family members including Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Zara and Mike Tindall, and about 50 other guests.

Kate, who is expecting her third child, and the rest of the family coordinated in blue outfits.

Not only is the dress relatively affordable (compared to the budget she must have for clothes, anyway!) but it was also seen on another royal just earlier this year.
