I am so looking forward to seeing the hat. That is one of the things I am most looking forward to about the Royal Christmas this year.

I bet Kate is probably grateful to have some of the interest on someone else for a change.

Not a fan of self portrait often but I quite like the look of this one.

I think she looked great from what we could see in the car

I am looking forward to her hat at Christmas. I am hoping she is like Camilla and Anne, and by that I mean that she rocks a proper hat. I hope she doesn't go all British with fascinators, or into grandma's closet for a pill box hat. Few women can pull them off and look modern. I'd love her to go with a proper stylish hat. Zara would be the cousin if any of them, I'd like to see her shop with for hats. Though she has some awful fascinators, she also has some great actual hats in her closet.

I love the dress and earrings. She seems more dressed up than the other women there. I wonder if the reason would be that Harry and Meghan's official engagement portrait will be taken at Buckingham Palace?

I don’t think they were there long enough for that. She wasn’t that dressed up compared to some of the older women. Kate also wore a dress. It’s probably just because it’s her first time meeting some of the extended family members.

There's a joke that Meghan will wear hats like a boss. Southern black ladies are known for their church hat wearing game.

I don't think Curbside was using racial humor just stating a fact, although honestly its not just Southern black women its older black women in general. Attend any predominately black church on a Sunday in the States, and you will find black woman of a certain age who are serious about their church hats and God! You could easily pick out at least 10 hats! And let's not talk about Easter!

There was even a coffee table book about it (I own it as well). Its called Crowns Crowns: A Brief History of Church Hats - Photo Essays - TIME .

I have been to a church in LA, and the woman are serious as well. I also believe that Meghan's mother's family is from the South...so if they are invited and attend the wedding...be ready!

Very true! My grandma and aunties are particular about their hats!

I can't wait to see Meghan in a nice formal hat (all I have seen are her vacation hats) and I hope she doesn't join the fascinator club!

In regards to her attire for the luncheon, I thought she looked lovely. Though I thought the top of the dress was a little dressy for the luncheon but I guess since won't know what everyone else wore, who knows? You never see anything but the top of the ladies outfits from their cars.

Either way, its was a lovely dress..and the earrings were on point.

Love these photos. Megan looks so very elegant in this combination. What treats we have to look forward to from this stylish young woman.

I don't like her outfit, the top is too sheer. And it doesn't seem to go with that ruffled skirt.

(I know it isn't really revealing, but I think she should have worn something more demure.)

I like the photo with the sweater, very nice. NOT liking the other outfit, far too transparent/revealing for me on this occasion.

Yes I don't like her outfit too (especially the top), but it's just a little flaw to me.

I don't like the sheer part of the dress and I sure there were a lot of gasps from the palace officials at her choice

Good grief, tell me that is a misprint that Meghan has a dress worth 56,000 pounds and I don't care who the designer is. If true that is the most dumbest thing, ridiculous thing ever. And no I do not like this dress, sheer beaded top with feathered skirt or ruffled skirt......hope this is not something forth coming all the time now........
