All eyes were on Prince Harry's beau last night, when she joined him to present during the Endeavour Fund Awards.

She wore an iconic Alexander McQueen suit for the event, with a sleek side-parting, showing she's far from a one-style trick pony.

The awards show, her third official event of the year, was an evening to celebrate wounded, injured and sick men and women in service who have participated in sporting and adventure challenges over the past year.

Markle was obviously a delight at the events, taking time to speak to many of the ex service people individually over the course of the evening.

She also presented an award herself, but it didn't go without a hiccup.

A video of the events shows Markle taking the stage and beginning to present the second award of the evening. When she finished speaking she stood to the side for someone else to open the envelope, only for there to be a super long, awkward pause. Thankfully, Markle laughed and the crowd giggled along with her, five or six times, acknowledging the slightly cringe-worthy moment.

Finally, after whatever was going on behind the podium that took so long, the award announcement finally got underway.

Phewf.

These kinds of things are bound to happen at events like these, and it looks as though Markle is a pro at smoothing over the embarrassing bumps.
