Ugh they look so good together. They just fit, and are happy and natural and attractive. For two high profile people that became a couple, they look so relatable.

Funny thing is, I've never given much thought to Prince Harry or his lovelife. I know Meghan from Suits as Rachel and just absolutely hated her character and portrayal. Also I confess to one of those people who only warm up to royal gfs when they become wives so it's been a nice surprise seeing the two together and getting caught up in the excitement of their romance. There's just something relatable and charismatic about them. It helps that it's been great seeing Harry mature in his work and with that, emotionally, which is reflected in his choice of partner from fun-loving socialites to a self-made woman with substance. Totally rooting for these two. <3

They look really good together, beaming, happy, in love. It's great to see. I'm thinking we will get much more pictures too. I love the pda, and they're really relaxed together.

It was a few years ago, but now I think it's in the same category as pashminas. Sure, there's people who still wear it, but I don't think it could be considered trendy, because the trend-setters have moved on.
They are not all the rage anymore. Although, I don't know if any specific type of jeans are these days. It's wearable, and not considered inappropriate by any normal person's perspective. I just realized I've gone way deep in talking about jeans.

I liked what Meghan wore, and she seemed perfectly comfortable with what she wore, it suited the event. Lot of reports on how at ease both Meghan and Harry were, both seemed relaxed and natural. That's the main thing for me.

One, I don't think Kate's pregnancy should be taken into account re Harry's wedding plans.
Two, Meghan's jeans aren't skin tight.

I personally have never loved ripped jeans, but they do still seem to be firmly in style. Skin-tight skinnies are on the way out (can someone tell the Duchess of Cambridge) but frayed fabric and holes are still very much a fashion.

etc.

Looking at the photos on those pages, I'm struck by how restrained Meghan's are in comparison. The standard seems to be either matching knee holes or a whole bunch of little ones, possibly one monster hole that's positively gaping, multiple extra little places where the fabric is fraying... She's got one moderate-sized hole and rough hems.

I think Meghan could wear a potato sack and make it look good. She doesn't seem to be a clothes horse but always dresses appropriately for wherever she is. She is happy and healthy and obviously very much in love with her man.

But what do I know. I'm an older lady sitting here in a heavy fleece onesie with penguin feet. Go figure.

I'll bite. Will she sit with Harry at the closing of the Games?

Most likely not. If she attends it will be the same as the opening ceremony, I bet. Those important to the Games will be seated together as at the opening. There's a certain protocol involved here.

Meghan and Harry are out and about as spectators together at the games and to me, that's enough to show the world that they're a couple.

If I was planning a wedding (done that) and my sister in law were pregnant, I would surely take her due date into account. It just means that there's a few weeks around the due date when I wouldn't chose a wedding date. No big deal this early on - they aren't even (officially) engaged yet.

Not if it's a more formal event like the opening ceremony.

Please note that several posts have been deleted as they were off-topic. This thread is not about the Duchess of Cambridge's fashion nor a place to speculate upon her view of other women.

Meghan’s trousers are skin tight. DM has a couple of unflattering photos.

I look forward to Meghan having a dedicated fashion thread.

Skinny jeans are a staple. They're never going to be out of style, just like a sweater will never be out of style.

I think she looks nice. Meghan dresses minimalistic and in clean lines. She prefers a classic style, but more on the trendy side.

While I've already said not a fan of ripped jeans...I think she looks fine. She's more dressed up than Harry is. She looks nice..appropriate for the event.

Meghan Ripped Jeans??

She looks great in them! Very tasteful and stylish and very today!

Those who don't like it? So what! For some of you it doesn't ever matter what Meghan does or wears, etc you'll always find something wrong with it and something negative to say.

She looks great and THEY LOOK GREAT TOGETHER!!

Meghan is not a member of the royal family. She is not attending an event representing the queen. So it really matters to no one but her and Harry, if her pants are practically painted on. Now if she chooses to wear ripped jeggings when she is duchess x, and representing the queen at an event, then there is reason to complain. Right now she is a private citizen representing no one.

Great to see the photos. They seem to be having a great time

Majesty magazine is having a hay day monitoring their facebook. I guess they have been inundated with racist comments left and right. Even the non racist ones are over the top.

This would probably make me a bad in-law but my sister in law's due date would not be my priority.

The artfully ripped jeans are still a big trend- half or more of the jeans for sale are that design. Maybe those who are on the cutting edge of fashion find it pass but the rest of the world doesn't.
