The event is private and generally we don't see photos, however, this year we are in luck. Performer Tom Walker sang a selection of songs at the event and shared images from the night. Mr Walker said: "I had the honour of performing and meeting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the annual Royal Foundation dinner."

BBC Countryfile host Anita Rani wrote on Instagram: "Such an honour to be asked to host the annual Royal Foundation dinner last night. Brilliant the Fab Four have come together to influence change. It was a wonderful evening!" She later added: "Go Meghan and Harry! We chatted weddings and feminism. It was a huge honour to host the event last night."

Victoria House is a Grade II-listed neoclassical building in London. It was constructed in the 1920s, built for, and for many decades occupied by, the Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society. The building was extensively remodelled in 2003 to create 300,000 square feet of office, retail and leisure space, including an original art deco ballroom, the Bloomsbury Ballroom function venue.

The Duchess was glowing in the rich navy silk Roland Mouret Aldrich dress (with thanks to Samantha). From what we can see it appears Meghan's is a custom full-length gown with a fully lined skirt based on the piece. Master of structure and silhouette, Roland Mouret believes that a dress is never complete until it's been worn. This elegant 'Aldrich' style is from the Resort '17 collection, inspired by the secluded Mount Street Gardens in London's Mayfair.
The elegant style is described: "Roland Mouret's metallic-navy silk Aldrich dress blends a flattering silhouette with a show-stealing fabrication. The strapless top is patterned with puckered stripes that contour the frame, while the voluminous midi skirt showcases blossoming flowers, and is just gauzy enough to reveal a hint of skin."
The eagle-eyed Laura noted Meghan accessorised with her Birks Snowstorm earrings.

It was wonderful to see photos and Meghan's look from the night!
The Royal Foundation Dinner wasn't Harry and Meghan's only engagement on Thursday. Yesterday afternoon the couple attended a Mental Health Innovation volunteers’ workshop at BBC Studioworks. The engagement was private and no photos were released by the Palace. I'm guessing we'll see footage and/or photos soon as part of a new Heads Together project. At present, the Royal Foundation is piloting a new start up - Mental Health Innovations. With £2 million invested, it is developing new tools to help people talking about mental health on digital platforms. We'll hear more about it (and I imagine Harry and Meghan's engagement) in the coming months.
In fashion news, the elegant black dress Meghan wore for the Festival of Remembrance has been identified as the £49 Marks & Spencer Double Crepe Bodycon Dress. It's described: "Added stretch in the double crepe material helps it hug your curves, while the elegant off-shoulder neckline folds down the bust to create a truly stunning piece." We've now seen the Duchess in several pieces from high-street favourite Marks & Sparks. With thanks to Elizabeth from Meghan's Fashion for her outstanding work on this one.
As you may have heard Stella McCartney has launched her first bridal collection.
The collection includes the iconic crepe halterneck gown the designer created for Harry and Meghan's wedding reception. The £3,500 piece is described: "Just one look at Stella McCartney's gown will tell you it's fit for royalty - quite literally, as Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, wore this exact style at her wedding reception. Precisely cut from weighty crepe so it skims your curves, it has a column silhouette and long train that will look beautiful as you walk down the aisle and dance at the party afterwards. Wear it with a sleek updo to show off the open back." It's available at Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom. It's a beautiful, timeless classic.
The gown is available in stretch cady blue at Saks Fifth Avenue.
We'll see Harry and Meghan on Monday night for the Royal Variety Performance. We'll see another gown appearance for the Duchess.
