Meghan Markle debutedthe dress earlier today when she arrived at St. George's Chapel for her wedding ceremony to Prince Harry. But that's not the only gown Markle is wearing for the day. She just showed her second evening dress-Stella McCartney this time-as she left for Frogmore House to attend the more intimate, nighttime reception that Prince Charles is throwing for the couple.

The Palace announced the dress details: "The Bride's evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue."
There was a lot of speculation that the actual wedding dress would be Stella McCartney, but this proves the buzz wasn't far off. It was rumored that McCartney would be designing the dress after Markle was seen in a Stella McCartney cape dress in April."I read this morning that you are designing the royal wedding dress,” a reporter from The Guardian said to the designer in April. "Oh, you did, did you? You’re hilarious. How many designers have you said that to today?" When the reporter pressed, McCartney didn't budge: "Well, you didn’t actually ask a question."
Kate Middleton also wore a second gown during her 2011 wedding to Prince William. Hers was long, princessy, white, and also by Alexander McQueen (the designer of Middleton's original wedding gown) for comparison:
