The designer behind Meghan Markle's evening gown at her wedding to Prince Harry has revealed the dress was the "last moment" the bride could reflect the "human within her".

So as well as an opportunity for Fiji to welcome this exceptional couple, the visit of his Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be a symbol of our strong commitment to the Commonwealth and our continuing affection for the Royal Family. Yes, you read that correctly, and while-no surprises here-it is Meghan Markle, she is now a Duchess and did just make royal history. She stood in the first row back then as well-but way to the left-whereas Meghan got to hang in the middle with the cool kids. Meghan Markle was attending the Trooping the Colour for Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday party.

The Duchess looked absolutely gorgeous in her bespoke Carolina Herrera dress and matching Philip Treacy hat.

That said, Little believes Meghan's spot was far better than it could have been.

Meghan and the Queen are set to take on three official engagements when the train arrives in Cheshire in the morning.

"She was not as prominent perhaps as some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order", Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, told People.

Generally speaking, the order in which the royals appear on the palace balcony is influenced by the Order of Precedence, rather than the line of succession to the throne. The new royal has been submitted by the USA Network for her role as Rachel Zane in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama category, a network representative confirmed to the publication.

However, a palace source reckons the former Suits star wouldn't have been given instructions on where to stand on the day, and likely made the decision herself.
