She has been clocked for her wardrobe of pale pink ensembles since marrying Prince Harry, but Meghan ditched the muted tones in favour of a bright yellow dress for a reception in London on Thursday.

The Duchess of Sussex wowed in a £1,300 canary yellow sheath dress by designer Brandon Maxwell who has worked as Lady Gaga's stylist since 2012.

The couple arrived at the reception at Marlborough House in London hand in hand, despite royal fans speculation that they may have stopped doing so following their marriage.

And while the Duchess has opted for sleek blow dries for her engagements of late, tonight she opted for her previously favoured hairstyle of a bun - though she had opted for a sleeker style over her iconic 'messy' updo.

Prince Harry, meanwhile, looked his dapper best in a navy blue suit complete with an olive green tie as he accompanied his wife into the reception.

The couple received a warm welcome from Patricia Scotland who greeted them at their cars. As they made their way towards the house they were treated to a musical performance by a steel pan band.

The delighted duke and duchess paused to give the band a round of applause following their performance. They continued to put on a tactile display as they assembled on the steps of the house as Meghan put a tentative hand on her husband's arm.

And they urged youth leaders from across the Commonwealth to fight against injustice, inequality and environmental damage.

Prince Harry and his new bride spoke of their passion to work with the 60 per cent of the Commonwealth’s 2.4 billion population aged under 30 to create a better world.

Harry, who was created the Queen’s Commonwealth Youth Ambassador in April, told guests at a reception at Marlborough House in London how he and Meghan were excited to be working with young people in the 53-nation association of mainly former British Empire countries.

‘Amongst all of you are innovators, entrepreneurs, and educators – ready to tackle climate change, social injustice and inequality,’ he said. ‘Together you will take on these big challenges – and be champions for your communities, for your families, your countries, and our Commonwealth.

‘Meghan and I are incredibly excited to meet so many of you representing the future of the Commonwealth. Later this year we will embark on a tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga. This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to meet and hear from more young people about their ideas for creating a better future.
