While the rest of the world has gone into overdrive trying to find out who will design Meghan Markle's wedding dress for her May 19 nuptials, the duchess-to-be inadvertently trolled us all by stepping out in—brace yourselves!—a long white dress. But before you go thinking she slipped into a full-on wedding gown for a casual Wednesday appearance alongside fiancé Prince Harry at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in London, worry not: Markle wore a crisp white sleeveless Altuzarra midi dress with pinstripes, a matching belt around the waist, and black buttons down the front.

You can snag Meghan's Altuzarra frock here for $1,995. And, according to People, she reportedly paired the dress with a black blazer from Australian brand Camilla and Marc draped over her shoulders (available here for $700), a black-and-white striped crossbody bag from another Australian brand, Oroton (available here for $221), and black ankle-strap pumps by British designer Tamara Mellon (available here for $475).

The Youth Forum is part of the weeklong Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. After being appointed Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by Queen Elizabeth II on Sunday, Harry opened the forum on Monday with a speech in which he shared that Markle will be joining him in his work with the young people of the Commonwealth. "I am incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in," he said at the time. "I know that serving as an ambassador to young people, I am going to have to try to keep up with you."

According to the Kensington Palace Twitter account, Harry and Meghan spent their Wednesday afternoon meeting with young delegates from around the Commonwealth. The delegates all hold positions of leadership in their communities, and "are creating youth-led initiatives to influence decision makers," per a royal tweet. In videos and photos shared from Wednesday's events, Harry and Meghan engaged with the delegates in discussions about what they've learned from each other at the conference so far.
