Harry and Meghan’s attendance at the Ripple of Hope Gala in New York City on Tuesday night came as the Prince and Princess of Wales joined the King and Queen for the first Diplomatic Corps reception at Buckingham Palace in three years.

Both groups put on a show for the cameras and guests with beaming smiles from both the Princess and the Duchess amid the growing tensions surrounding Harry and Meghan’s bombshell Netflix documentary.

On Tuesday night, Harry and Meghan stepped out of a black SUV in the rain to receive a human rights award from the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation.

The pair were honoured with the award for their “heroic” stance against “structural racism” within the monarchy.

Meghan opted for a white custom-made Louis Vuitton off-the-shoulder dress which featured a dazzling thigh-high slit.

The Duchess’ form-fitting ensemble was paired with a black clutch, black stilettos, and long gold earrings which were on show as her hair was scraped back into a low bun.

Royal fans have drawn comparisons between the dress worn by Meghan and a green number which Kate chose to wear on Friday for the Earthshot Prize ceremony.

One commented on Meghan’s dress on Twitter, saying: “This is one of her better looks.

“I think it really works on her. But Princess Kate just wore an off the shoulder dress with a huge emerald necklace and I think Meghan absolutely took inspiration from her look.”

Another concluded: “Princess Kate won the dress battle.”

The ceremony in Boston saw the Prince and Princess of Wales award innovative projects working towards tackling the climate crisis.

To match the eco-friendly theme, Kate chose a daring bright green off-the-shoulder dress by Solace London which she rented for the night from HURR.

Kate’s form-fitting dress featured a slight slit at the back and cost her $91 (£74) for the evening.

According to Vogue, Meghan’s dress is one-of-a-kind and was designed especially for her by Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicholas Ghesquière.

Both Kate and Meghan honoured their late mother-in-law Princess Diana by wearing a piece of her jewellery.

The Princess of Wales wore Diana’s emerald choker necklace which once belonged to Queen Mary.

Meanwhile, Meghan wore an emerald-cut aquamarine ring which she previously wore on her wedding day and during a royal tour of Tonga.

The ring was commissioned by Diana from British jeweler Asprey in the 1990s which was passed to Harry upon Diana’s death.

Some royal fans preferred Meghan’s look with one calling Kate’s necklace an “outdated emerald choker”.

The fan added that instead: “Meghan wore a modern beautiful white dress and her radiant smile.”

Another added: “Meghan’s simplicity is classic and absolutely gorgeous. I love that she stays true to that.”

Others found the shade of green too much with the green carpet which was used instead of a red carpet for the Earthshot event.

They said: “I thought Kate’s dress was pretty. I just didn’t like the colour because it matched the carpet.

“Meghan looks great, as does Harry. So happy they are receiving this award.”
