Meghan paired the dress with a simple pair of black court shoes and her signature natural makeup look.

During the event, the Queen was honoured with a special award for conservation for her initiative to highlight the plight of the world's forests.

The award, for her 'outstanding contribution' to global conservation, was accepted on her behalf by the Duke of Sussex, who gave a speech on protecting the planet.

The prince said: "We cannot continue to pollute the oceans with plastics and other wastes. We cannot continue to breathe polluted air while cutting down our forests or without reducing emissions.

"We cannot stand by and let our wildlife disappear from the earth and our fish from the seas. I think we can agree tonight that there cannot be any more excuses.

"Thanks to the tireless efforts of everyone in this room and the environmentalists and conservationists of the past, we are ready to translate our awareness into action.
