Meghan Markle opted for a decidedly casual look as she checked in at LAX Airport in Los Angeles for her flight to London on Monday evening – but still managed to sport some serious couture, including a $26,000 Cartier watch. 

As the Duchess of Sussex prepared to board a long haul flight to London to reunite with Prince Harry ahead of the Invictus Games in Germany, the Duchess plumped for $773 Ulla Johnson sailor-style Polina wide-legged trousers with a matching navy V-neck jumper.

Flats were the order of the day, and the mother-of-two, who travelled with aides to the California airport donned a favoured pair of $770 Valentino ‘Roman Stud’ mules in ivory calfskin.

It was the accessories that stole the sartorial show in this particular ensemble however, with Meghan, 42, carrying a $2,650 Goyard ‘St. Louis PM’ tote bag, in which a designer scarf, believed to be a $1,200 Rayures d’Ete Shawl from Hermes, was draped.

On her wrist, Prince Harry’s wife donned a Cartier yellow gold Tank Francaise watch, worth a cool $26,000.

Perched on the Duchess’ head was a pair of oversized $500 ‘shiny black’ Triomphe Celine sunglasses, and she carried a Panama-style Janessa Leone ‘Michon’ hat, which retails at $267, on the airport run. 

Markle looked delighted as she jetted out of the US to join her husband – but despite landing in London today she will not be stopping in Britain for long, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

The Duchess of Sussex boarded a plane from LAX to Heathrow last night accompanied by a single body guard spotted carrying some of her bags and clothing.

It is her first transatlantic journey since flying to London for the Queen’s funeral last September. The trip to Germany means she will be with Harry for his 39th birthday on Friday.

The mother-of-two has left Archie and Lilibet at home and was swept into LAX in a white luxury BMW yesterday evening, hours after she was spotted behind the wheel of her $140,000 black Range Rover grabbing a burger from In-N-Out close to the Sussexes’ $14.6m Montecito home.

After arriving at the airport at just before 6pm, she grinned as she got out of her limousine. 

Meghan is due to land in London this morning but is unlikely to stop for long in the British capital, where she lived for three years with her husband before Megxit in January 2020.

She is likely to jump straight on to a BA flight to Dusseldorf this afternoon where her husband is attending every day of the Invictus Games, which ends on Saturday.

She will be whisked from the airport to the five star Hyatt Hotel where Harry is ensconced in the Presidential suite.

Meghan will support Harry and the athletes at events before his big speech at the closing ceremony, where she may also address the crowd.

Her absence from the start of the event ‘helps’ him, it was claimed today.

Speaking on GB News broadcaster Eamonn Holmes said that Harry going solo shows the world his personality.

He said: ‘He knows what he’s talking about, he’s very credible and does it very well. And she’s [Meghan Markle] not there. All of which helps.’

Harry had a front row seat next to Royal Marine veteran Mark Ormrod whom the prince has previously described the triple amputee as Britain’s answer to Superman. 

The Duke of Sussex showed his excitement as he clapped and cheered along with the noisy crowd.

The final took place in a raucous atmosphere at the Merkur-Spiel arena in Düsseldorf, Germany as both sets of fans cheered on the competitors.

He also left two boys delighted yesterday after giving them each a high-five at the Invictus Games in Germany.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, walked alongside his security team – including ex-US presidential bodyguard Chris Sanchez and ex-Metropolitan Police officer Dave Langdown – when the two boys held out their hands for a high-five.

After Harry happily obliged, the children – one of whom was draped in a Union Jack – jumped up and down in excitement, with one raising his fist in celebration.

The prince was given a hero’s welcome in Germany by those attending the annual competition he founded in 2014 for wounded and disabled military veterans.

Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, also posed for photos with competitors and was in a boisterous mood as he joined in chanting.

The duke was cheered by the crowd as he took his seat in the grandstand at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf.

As competitors participated in a 200-metre race, Harry could be seen cupping his hands to his mouth and cheering along with the crowd.

He sat next to Yulia Laputina, Ukraine’s minister of veterans affairs, who wore a green military uniform and draped her country’s flag over her shoulders.

Harry said he plans to attend as many events as he can during the week-long competition.
