Meghan Markle opted for an array on monochrome outfits for the first day on the Invictus Games in Germany today.
The Duchess of Sussex, 42, boarded a plane from Los Angeles to Europe in an all black ensemble, before quickly getting ready in her Dusseldorf hotel room and heading to the games in a black shirt dress from Banana Republic, which she paired with black shoes and a black belt.
She then appeared on Wednesday in a black and white number – with white shorts, a black tank top and a white cardigan from J Crew.
Then the royal opted for go all black again, in black jeans, heels and a tank top – which she paired with a white blazer.
Despite often wearing colour while a working royal, Meghan claimed she ‘toned down’ her wardrobe while she living in the UK to avoid clashing with more senior members of the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Sussex made the claims in the third episode of her Netflix series.
She explained: ‘Most of the time I was in the UK, I rarely wore colour.
‘To my understanding, you can’t ever wear the same colour as Her Majesty if there’s a group event but then you also shouldn’t be wearing the same colour as one of the other more senior members of the family.’
To respect this rumoured royal protocol, Meghan says she started dressing almost exclusively in shades of camel, beige and white.
She continued: ‘I wore a lot of muted tones but it was also so I could just blend in. I’m not trying to stand out here.
‘There was no version of me [that was] joining this family and trying not to do everything I could to fit in. I don’t want to embarrass the family.’
So it appears that Meghan is shunning the spotlight in muted tones again.
On her way to the games, she opted for a decidedly casual look in a 773 Ulla Johnson sailor-style Polina wide-legged trousers with a matching navy V-neck jumper.
Flats were the order of the day, and the mother-of-two, who travelled with aides to the California airport donned a favoured pair of $770 Valentino ‘Roman Stud’ mules in ivory calfskin.

It was the accessories that stole the sartorial show in this particular ensemble however, with Meghan, 42, carrying a $2,650 Goyard ‘St. Louis PM’ tote bag, in which a designer scarf, believed to be a $1,200 Rayures d’Ete Shawl from Hermes, was draped.
For her first appearance, Meghan then looked radiant in a black shirt dress from Banana Republic, costing £112.
She paired her dress with black pumps and wore her thick brunette locks down and brushed behind one shoulder to reveal her £595 Kimaï hoop earrings.
She continued she can mix high street and high end in $98 J Crew linen shorts and a black tank top which she paired with a £177 J Crew blazer, Givenchy belt and £910 Chanel shoes.

Adding even more glamour to the look as she headed into the arena to watch the wheelchair basketball, the royal wore Princess Diana’s £17,800 Cartier watch and a $62,000 Lorraine Schwartz pinky ring made with ‘diamonds gifted from the Middle East’.
She added her £5,000 Cartier love bracelet to the look as she walked hand-in-hand with Prince Harry.
She was later snapped during the Swimming Finals with a pair of £620 cream Hermès Get sneakers, made from canvas and calfskin, and emblazoned with an ‘H’ motif.
And she added some bling to the outfit with a pair of £2,000 Luna Skye earrings, shaped like leaves, and boasting baguette diamonds.
