Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."

While most of the employed people in the U.S. are extending the July 4 holiday through the weekend, the British Royals are hard at work. On Thursday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an appearance in London for a reception hosted by The Commonwealth Secretariat, a network and organization that champions young voices and supports small and vulnerable states around the world. (In April 2018, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Prince Harry as The Commonwealth's Youth Ambassador.)

For their visit, Markle wore a yellow, boatneck sheath dress from Brandon Maxwell that fit her like a glove, paired with Adina Reyter earrings and nude heels. ("A proud moment for our team," announced the American fashion brand on Instagram.) Together, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex learned more about their roles within The Commonwealth, as well as met with young leaders who fulfilled a leadership training workshop. 

With Markle's bright, citrusy color choice — and the youth-oriented occasion — perhaps Gen Z Yellow will finally take off as the new millennial pink.
