Meghan Markle attends 'Hamilton' in protocol-pushing tuxedo mini dress

We haven't had a Prince Harry or Meghan Markle sighting for the better part of 3 weeks, when the newlyweds stepped out in early August to celebrate the wedding of Harry's childhood friend Charlie van Straubenzee.

But on Wednesday, royal fans were treated briefly to a new sighting of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they stepped out to attend a charity performance of "Hamilton" in London. The show benefited Sentebale, the charity Prince Harry founded in 2006 to benefit children affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.

The Duchess of Sussex dressed up for her return to the public eye, sporting an outfit so short that it would definitely not receive the highest marks from Queen Elizabeth. While Harry chose a traditional suit and tie combination for the West End performance, Meghan opted for a protocol-pushing tuxedo-style mini dress by Canadian designer Judith & Charles.

The 37-year-old opted for her go-to bun, a black clutch and Stuart Weitzman pumps to complement her chic outfit. There's no doubt the new royal will get some flack for her short hemline and deep neckline, but it's no surprise that Meghan chose such a daring outfit.

The duchess has been shaking up royal protocol ever since stepping into the royal spotlight. Most recently, it was reported that her bold sartorial choices caused a slight rift between Meghan and Harry when he tried to "ban" her from wearing a tuxedo.

More on that in the video above.
