Meghan Markle wore a white mini dress and a striking red lip for a surprise appearance in the Netherlands this weekend, much to the excitement of her adoring royal fans. 

Meghan Markle has stepped out in a runway show's worth of outfits this weekend, making royal fans everywhere wonder if there's any style the 40-year-old can't nail. Her latest ensemble, however—a white mini dress and a bold red lip—might have just answered that question. 

The Duchess of Sussex arrived in the Netherlands on Friday with Prince Harry to attend the Invictus Games 2022, an international event that sees wounded soldiers from across the world compete in adaptive sports. The engagement, which was preceded by a stop at Windsor Castle on Thursday to meet the Queen, marked the couple's first joint trip to Europe since their high-profile emigration in early 2020. It's understood that the Sussexes offered Her Majesty an 'olive branch' during the visit, after a strained two years of family conflict. 

It was also Meghan's first public appearance of 2022, having spent much of the past few months at the £14 million Santa Barbara mansion she shares with her husband and their two young children, Archie and Lilibet. 

Unsurprisingly, royal fans were delighted by the Duchess's high visibility at The Hague this weekend—and the stellar outfits she chose to wear to each event. 

From Meghan's baggy jeans to her all-white suit, the mom-of-two didn't disappoint when it came to her European fashion.

On her second night in the Netherlands, she wore a stunning white dress by Valentino to meet Invictus Games participants with Prince Harry at an evening reception. The long-sleeved gown, which retails for a  whopping £3,600, featured floral cut-out embroidery and a thigh-length hemline.

The A-lister paired the couture dress with one of her best red lipsticks and swept her wavy brown hair to the side, ensuring the outfit's distinctive neckline could be clearly seen in photos. 

Harry also upped the style factor for the event, wearing a camel-colored linen suit and white shirt to pose for pictures with the athletes. It's understood that the couple's appearance at the engagement, which saw them meet with members of the Ukrainian and Iraqi delegations, had been unannounced.
