The Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge wore elegant evening dresses for a night out in London with the royal family on Saturday.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton joined Princes Harry, William, and the rest of the royal family for the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Markle opted for a button-down, brocade gown with a black clutch bag. She slicked her hair back into her signature sleek updo.

It was the first time the entire family have been seen together publicly since the Trooping the Colour Parade earlier this summer. It was also the first time Harry and William have been seen together since Harry acknowledged the rift between them.

Speaking on the ITV documentary, “Harry and Meghan: An African Journey” last month, the prince said they’re “on different paths at the moment.”

“Part of this role and part of this job, this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably stuff happens,” he said.

“But look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers,” he added. “We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I’ll always be there for him and as I know he’ll always be there for me. “
