Meghan Markle, 36, is in Dublin with Prince Harry on a two-day tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kicked off their trip yesterday, where they wrapped up the day at the British Ambassador’s residence at Glencairn House for an evening summer party.

Wearing the Emerald Isle’s official colour in the day, Meghan slipped into a stunning, chic black cocktail dress.

Surprisingly the dress was from designer Emilia Wickstead, who reportedly criticised Meghan’s Givenchy wedding dress.

The British designer, who is a favourite of Kate Middleton, made headlines after the royal wedding when the Daily Mail reported Emilia’s slightly critical comments.

According to the Daily Mail, the 34-year-old designer allegedly said: “Her dress is identical to one of our dresses. Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, ‘It’s an Emilia Wickstead dress.'”

After her supposed comments, Emilia took to her own Instagram page to help smooth the situation, posting: “I am extremely saddened by commentary that has appeared in the press and online over the past few days.

“Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day and I have the utmost admiration and respect for her.

“I do not think that her wedding dress was a copy of any of our designs.”

She also added: “I have the greatest respect for Clare Waight Keller and the House of Givenchy, a huge source of inspiration to me.”

Meghan hasn’t been spotted in Emilia Wickstead since her nuptials, but has worn the designer in the past.

In April the Duchess wore one of her designs for the Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey.

Almost two months have passed since the wedding and Meghan and Emilia are clearly on good terms, with the Duchess wearing one of her £2,000 creations last night.

The stylish dress featured a wide belt that nipped her in at the waist and came to just above her ankles.

Showing her allegiance to her wedding dress designer, the Duchess also wore a Givenchy clutch bag.

She topped her dazzling look off with amber and diamond £1996.96 earrings and her glossy dark hair in elegant waves.

Her outfit was her third change of the day, starting off Tuesday morning at Westminster Abbey for a service to mark 100 years of the Royal Air Force.

Meghan wore a a black Dior dress which featured a bateau neckline and a full A line skirt.

Meghan’s dress showed similarities with the one she wore for her wedding back in May.

After the service the Sussexs jetted to Dublin, where she wore a green simple long sleeve t-shirt and a green pencil skirt by Givenchy worth over £1000.
