Like almost everything the Duchess wears, Meghan’s designer Valentino frock soon sold out online after she was pictured wearing it earlier yesterday evening.
Princess Beatrice was among the first of the guests to arrive while her sister Princess Eugenie was spotted chatting to the bride.
Beatrice – who is expected to announce her engagement to multi-millionaire boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi ‘next spring’, according to royal experts – dazzled in a trendy gold embellished headband and sequin gown.
Ivanka Trump looked sensational in a Grecian peach-coloured pleated dress for the sunset ceremony.
The President’s daughter completed her chic evening look with a full-length train and metallic belt as she was accompanied by her husband Jared Kushner.
Meanwhile, the bride was pictured waiting in the wings as her guests arrive and opted for a white short-sleeve gown and styled her hair in a classic chignon.

The pop star finished off her look with some chic white sunglasses while her fiance Orlando Bloom looked dapper in a tuxedo.
The lavish Villa Aurelia is one of the most sought-after and exclusive wedding venues in Rome, boasting elaborate interiors, extravagant reception rooms and breathtaking views of the city.
On Thursday, it was revealed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had left baby Archie Harrison behind as they jetted off to Rome for Misha’s wedding.
The designer is one of Meghan’s closest friends and was recently hired as the designer behind Meghan’s new Smart Works capsule collection.

A source told Fabulous Digital: “Misha helped introduce Harry to Meghan and the two women are the best of friends.
“Meghan wasn’t going to miss her wedding for the world.
“They’ve left Archie at home but it’s only for a couple of days and they will be back on Saturday.”
Misha is one of Meghan’s closest friends and attended both the Royal Wedding last year and her lavish New York baby shower in February.
Other guests included on Misha’s star-studded list of invitees are Katy Perry and her fiance Orlando Bloom, who were spotted enjoying a loved-up display in Rome last night.
Misha is thought to have invited around 300 guests to the extravagant nuptials, including model Karlie Kloss and husband Joshua Kushner as well as Ivanka Trump.
