^ It isn't COMPULSORY to like her, or what she wears, you know ?

It's perfect for today's engagement IMO as Harry is dressed in more casual wear too.

Which one? Because you know there is that going on for every royal lady. It's just more annoying when there are posters going into posts about people you know they hate every time something happens and just to offer unsubstantiated and odd criticisms.

Although, I believe I was the first to comment on how much I hate brown when the Sandringham pictures came out.

The neutrality and simplicity of this outfit really resonate with me. She makes it look chic and effortless. Also love that she wore proper trousers vs. skinny jeans. Harry has never looked better either!

I really like the pants and sweater. The coat is good, but I prefer the Smythe coat she has worn previously. I'm not big on the bulky scarves, but I live in much warmer climate and will probably not survive in Canada or London during winter.

I dislike rusty browns, too, but I have to admit that it worked for her at Sandringham. I admire that she has managed to look like she's not trying too hard by going over the top with color/style (OK, the engagement dress notwithstanding price-wise)

I have only now seen her trousers, or, as we call it in Dutch, a pantalon.
They look very chic!

Smythe is actually a Canadian clothing line. So far Maegan has worn coats from three different Canadian companies!!!!!

Oh, I thought she looked adorable, but I instinctively shutter a little bit when I see that color.

I always thought Smythe is English? But that's probably because I knew Samantha Cameron worked there.

I think Canada is much colder during winter than London these days, although I could be wrong.
And indeed if you live in a much warmer climate then generally Northwest European winters could probably feel like the North Pole to you

Ah, okay. I would think a visit to a radio station would be more in the "informal" bucket, but what do I know.

Kate wore a Smythe blazer on her first visit to Canada.

I can find nothing wrong with her outfit today. The pants are very nice looking and the coat and scarf are lovely. The only thing I can say is that, I do like a messy bun when it is done intentionally, this does not look intentional, but last minute because her hair wouldn't cooperate. Other than that, she looks great for the outing.

I wish she would wear fewer neutrals. I don't think brown and beige do much for her coloring. Once I read Meghan's brown beret compared to a poop emoji, it was an image I could not unsee.

It is a little odd to pipe up only to offer consistent criticisms. Just curious--why do you dislike Meghan?

I have a feeling she is going to be seen in a lot of neutral colors...it seems to be her thing.

She's talked about liking monochromatic dressing before in an interview.

For those that like a lot of colors, I just don't think Meghan will be your fashion inspiration very often.

I've been critical of Kate in the past over hair going everywhere and so, to be absolutely fair I think next time Meghan tries an updo it would be good to have one where you don't have to keep brushing your hair away from your face.

I'm also a colour kind of gal and I'd love to see her on an engagement with a green or blue outfit. But, I like her and I think she's doing exceptionally well for a beginner at the Royal game, so...

Like me?

No I usually don't care for all the neutrals; I prefer color.
But there's nothing wrong with what she is wearing, it just doesn't appeal to me.

And, I think her hair looks awful!!
