The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are hitting the ground running!

On Tuesday — just three days after tying the knot — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first appearance as a married couple in honor of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.

And Meghan is in full royal mode now. The newly-minted duchess wore a pale pink-and-taupe silk-crepe Flavia dress from Goat with a matching pink hat that showed off her perfectly polished side chignon (just like sister-in-law Kate Middleton!).

The garden party at Buckingham Palace, which honors Charles’ patronages, military affiliations and charities, also paid tribute to first responders of the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert in May 2017.

The palace confirmed in a briefing earlier this month that Harry and Meghan would not jet off for a romantic honeymoon right after their nuptials. Instead, they are celebrating with Prince Charles just days after he threw an evening reception for the couple after they said “I do.” (Charles hosted 200 guests at Harry and Meghan’s private evening reception at Frogmore House on the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.)
