Proving she's a total pro under pressure, future royal Meghan Markle just saved the day at an awards ceremony, after her co-host lost his script.

Markle, wearing a black Alexander McQueen trouser suit and white Tuxe blouse, presented the second award of the second annual Endeavour Fund Awards. While Chopra's attendance is yet to be confirmed at the big Royal wedding between Markle and Prince Harry, she has given her take on the new couple.

Her powerful look was a throwback to her acting days on United States legal drama Suits, which regularly saw Meghan wear a suit in her role as a lawyer.

Markle donned the sleek tuxedo-inspired outfit to attend the awards ceremony held in honour of the wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women, taking place at Goldsmith's Hall in London.

Prince Harry attended the same awards ceremony a year ago with his brother, Prince William.

Harry also gave a speech before handing out the final award of the night, telling the nominees, "You guys are truly awesome and society needs every single one of you". The royal-to-be wore cropped, black cigarette pants paired with a tuxedo shirt by designer Alexander McQueen.

Meghan's coats always complete her elegant looks, and she often pairs them with a simple scarf.

Meghan looked as proud as punch to stand alongside Harry, who has long supported military personnel since he left the army in 2015. Thankfully, Markle laughed and the crowd giggled along with her, five or six times, acknowledging the slightly cringe-worthy moment. In fact, they designed Middleton's bridal gown for her royal wedding to Prince William in 2011. Even though she's pregnant with her third child, she's been appearing at more royal engagements and is even looks more eager to meet her fans in public.
