Harry & Meghan Kick Off the Invictus Games With a Driving Challenge

It was a decidedly more casual affair for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the afternoon – after unveiling a plaque at the Anzac memorial, the pair traveled by boat to Cockatoo Island for their first Invictus Games engagement.

The event was the Jaguar Land Rover driving challenge and Harry and Meghan split their time between watching the cars gear up for the race, meeting with athletes who will be competing next week and playing electric cars with children who accompanied athletes.

At its close they handed out medals to the winners.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since we first saw Meghan at Harry’s side during an Invictus Games event in Toronto. After attending the opening ceremonies, she made a surprise appearance at a tennis match wearing ripped jeans, a white button down and sunglasses – today is essentially the grown up version of that.

Now with a move to London, engagement and wedding behind her, not to mention a baby on the way, the Duchess of Sussex turned up at the first Invictus Games engagement wearing her branded black button down with Mother jeans, a white blazer by Altuzarra and the same black Tabitha Simmons heels she wore in the morning. Incidentally, I actually much prefer the heels with this get up than the more formal Emilia Wickstead.

The pièce de résistance was the tortoiseshell Illvesta Palm sunnies, which I loved.

It’s hard to dress up a black button down, or “make it work,” if you will, but Meghan did just that so props to her. I’d call this engagement a win all around.
