Meghan Markleis flying solo for the first time.
And while the new royal couldn't be more different from her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, fans of the royal family couldn't help but compare the two women's debut solo engagements.
To start, the Duchess of Cambridge performed her royal duties at a formal charity dinner, six months after she tied the knot to Prince William in 2011. The event, which Prince Charleswas originally slated to attend, was an A-list soiree held at Clarence House intended to raise money for the Prince's charity, In Kind Direct.
While mingling with other attendees, the then-newlywed Kate donned a vintage Amanda Wakeley gown. The silver gown lightly flowed down Middleton's slim figure and was accented with jewel-encrusted straps and jewelry.
Meghan, on the other hand, visited the Royal Academy of Arts in central London for the opening of the Oceania art exhibit.
