Meghan Markle Wears Navy (Again!) at Invictus Games Opening Ceremony – and Prince Harry Matches

Meghan Markle Wears Navy (Again!) at Invictus Games Opening Ceremony – and Prince Harry Matches

Meghan Markle has been giving a certain shade of blue a lot of love recently.

The mom-to-be wore all-navy attire during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Invictus Games. She accessorized a Stella McCartney dress with a Gillian Anderson coat and a clutch in the same color, along with a pair of diamond drop earrings featuring deep-blue sapphires.

Husband Prince Harry made sure to look picture perfect alongside his wife, wearing a navy tie to match her outfit.

Meghan, 37, paired all the navy ensemble with beige suede Stuart Weitzman heels – which she also recently wore on a royal tour stop, pairing it again with a navy (and periwinkle!) dress by British Designer Roksanda Ilinčić.

The Duchess of Sussex is often recycling go-to looks, and navy has proven to be her go-to color during her and Harry’s visit Down Under. She wore another navy dress on the third day of the tour, this time by Australian designer Dion Lee, with the beige Martin Grant trench coat that she wore in Sydney and matching blue Manolo Blahnik suede heels.

This isn’t the first time Meghan is showing her love for the dark blue hue — Meghan wore a navy dress and coat by Givenchy (her wedding dress designer!) with a matching hat by Noel Stewart at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank‘s royal wedding earlier this month.

Harry and Meghan are currently on their 16-day royal tour of Australia, Tonga, Fiji and New Zealand. Harry opened the Invictus Games on Saturday with a speech that mentioned the couple’s bundle-to-be.

“First of all, thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,” he shared with the crowd gathered at the Sydney Opera House. “I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.”

Jenelle Evans' Husband David Eason Says They've 'Never Been Happier' Despite Assault Allegations

Jenelle Evans' Husband David Eason Says They've 'Never Been Happier' Despite Assault Allegations

Jenelle Evans and husband David Eason continue to put on a united front following the release of her tearful 911 call in which the Teen Mom 2 star alleged he assaulted her.

The couple was all smiles as they posed outside with 1½-year-old daughter Ensley Jolie in a photo uploaded to Eason’s Instagram account on Saturday.

“We have never been happier, thanks for asking!” Eason captioned the happy family selfie, snapped near the water in Wilmington, North Carolina.

On Friday night, the couple were seen dining together in Eason’s Instagram Stories. According to video shared earlier on that account, they began their day with a family breakfast with Ensley, who held both of her parents’ hands at a restaurant. “She loves holding mama and dada’s hands. Her sweet baby,” Eason gushed about the tiny tot.

Evans, 26, told E! News on Friday that her 911 call — placed from their shared home on Oct. 13 — was “a drunk and dramatic misunderstanding.”

“Everything is great. … We are totally fine,” she said, adding that the couple are now “feeling fine” and “taking time off social media … time to focus on ourselves and our family.”

PEOPLE confirmed on Thursday that Evans was hospitalized over the weekend. The chief of 911 operations for Columbus County, North Carolina, said that two police officers responded to a 911 call placed from the home of Evans and Eason on Oct. 13.

The call was placed by a female just before 10 p.m. and was “called in as an assault,” the chief said. An ambulance was also requested but later canceled, the chief said: “The female was transported to the hospital via private vehicle instead.”

A spokesperson for the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office told PEOPLE that no incident report was taken.

Prince Harry Reveals He and Queen Elizabeth Share a Sweet Connection to Sydney at Invictus Games

Prince Harry Reveals He and Queen Elizabeth Share a Sweet Connection to Sydney at Invictus Games

What a cool coincidence!

When Prince Harry opened the 2018 Invictus Games on Saturday in a welcoming speech at the Sydney Opera House, he shared a special family tidbit with the crowd.

It turns out that his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, actually declared the Sydney Opera House open on the very same day 45 years ago.

“On this day in 1973, my grandmother, the Queen, stood in front of this Opera House and declared it open,” he said at the beginning of his speech. “Forty-five years later, to the day, it is my honor to be standing in front of this iconic symbol of Australia’s place in the modern world at the start of the fourth Invictus Games.”

“The Sydney Opera House has captured the imagination of the world, though I understand that its construction has not been totally without problems,” Queen Elizabeth said at the opening of Jørn Utzon’s stunning structure. “The human spirit must sometimes take wings or sails, and create something that is not just utilitarian or commonplace.”

During her reign, the 92-year-old monarch has made 16 visits to Australia.

Before the big day, Harry was photographed rehearsing his speech before his wife, Meghan Markle. The couple kicked off their royal tour in Australia with the announcement that they’re expecting a baby, which Harry weaved into his speech.

“First of all, thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,” he shared with the crowd. “I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.”

Meghan Markle Effect Takes the Invictus Games! See How Host Channeled the Duchess with Her Ring

Meghan Markle Effect Takes the Invictus Games! See How Host Channeled the Duchess with Her Ring

The Meghan Markle sparkle has taken the world by storm — even at the Invictus Games.

Just before Prince Harry‘s opening speech, presenters Kumi Taguchi and Nate Byrne took the stage, and viewers quickly noticed that the large, aquamarine ring Taguchi was wearing looked familiar.

The ring bears a striking resemblance to stunning aquamarine sparkler that Meghan wore when she stepped out in her evening ensemble after the couple’s royal wedding in May.

The emerald cut ring belonged to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, who famously wore it to an auction of her own clothes at Christie’s in 1997. The jewel is part of a set — the other piece is an aquamarine bracelet, where it’s connected by five strands of pearls. Diana wore both to a gala dinner in Australia in 1996.

Since Prince William and Harry inherited their mother’s jewelry collection, very little of it has been seen in public. But some pieces have been given to the royals’ wives.

Prince William poignantly gave the diamond and sapphire sparkler that was Diana’s engagement ring to Kate Middleton when he proposed in 2010, a lovely reminder that she was with them on their royal wedding day.

Prince Harry was able to mirror that gesture by giving Meghan the aquamarine ring, which, it has now been revealed, was a gift for Diana to wear in place of her engagement ring after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996. Diana, who died in 1997, was given the square-cut beautiful piece by her good friend Lucia Flecha de Lima, the wife of the former ambassador of Brazil to the U.K.

Lucia, who died last year at her home in Brazil at 76, “bought it to replace the engagement ring Diana no longer wanted to wear once her marriage ended,” veteran royals journalist Richard Kay (who was a friend of Diana’s) writes in the Daily Mail.

According to Kay, Meghan has the inherited ring with her on the couple’s 16-day royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, so she may wear it again soon.

Jackie Kennedy 'Was a Little Nervous' on Her Wedding Day to Aristotle Onassis 50 Years Ago Today

Jackie Kennedy 'Was a Little Nervous' on Her Wedding Day to Aristotle Onassis 50 Years Ago Today

It was a marriage that made headlines worldwide: the wedding of Jackie Kennedy and Greek shipping millionaire Aristotle Onassis. But behind the scenes, JFK’s widow was “a little bit nervous,” her longtime assistant and nanny Kathy McKeon reveals to PEOPLE on what would have been the couple’s 50th wedding anniversary.

Exactly half a century ago Saturday, on Oct. 20, 1968, Jackie wed Aristotle Onassis, becoming “Jackie O” — and one of the richest and most glamorous women in the world — overnight.

McKeon, whose 2017 memoir Jackie’s Girl recounts her time working for the former first lady and caring for her children, Caroline and John, remembers the little details about the day of Jackie’s second wedding.

Jackie told McKeon about the surprise wedding just 72 hours ahead of time. After she helped Caroline and John pack for the trip, McKeon told her boss she didn’t have anything to wear on the trip and Jackie gave her a white coat, which McKeon later recognized as one Jackie had been photographed wearing. Sadly, it didn’t fit well. “I was a little too chubby,” says McKeon, who later donated it.

When the family arrived in Greece, McKeon remembers Onassis clasping some blue worry beads, rubbing them back and forth in his hands, as he greeted them.

McKeon, along with the family, took a private helicopter from Athens, which landed on the deck of the Christina, the opulent yacht owned by Onassis. “I was a little nervous because it was my first time on a helicopter,” she says. “When I saw that we were descending towards the water, John reassured me that everything was going to be fine. And that we were about to land on the yacht and not in the water.”

McKeon was in the room as Jackie got dressed for the ceremony. She brought her the requested jewelry and makeup and watched as a hairdresser and makeup artist worked their magic. Still, the former first lady was a little nervous, McKeon says.
