Hours after marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle revealed a second wedding dress for the couple's evening reception at Frogmore House.

The high neck gown, made of silk crepe, was designed by Stella McCartney.

To complete the old “something blue” tradition, the newly titled Duke and Duchess of Sussex departed for the reception at Frogmore House in a 1968 blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero.

The 36-year-old bride also wore Aquazurra heels for the night, which according to the royals’ website had “soles painted in baby blue".

On her right hand, Markle wore an aquamarine ring that belonged to Princess Diana.

Earlier in the day Meghan surprised everyone by wearing a wedding dress designed by Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller after months of speculation liking her to other designers, such as Ralph and Russo. 

The stunning gown featured three quarter length sleeves and a bateau neck and was accompanied by a beautiful veil representing the Commonwealth.
