I don't think so. She just likes monochromatic dressing. And quite frankly, for her to do it this way, it's really doesn't give the movement attention. It's pointless.

I haven't been impressed with anything Meghan has worn since Invictus. This is no different, but I am happy to see her interacting with people and working with Harry.

Oh and you may not pay much attention to other royals but you should go look at the coat Princess Sofia (Sweden) wore tonight (link below)...I LOVE it would love to see a BRF lady wear it too.

I love the coat except for the embroidered hem part. I don't like embellishment on coats unless it's like Dolce & Gabbana style embroidery on the shoulders OR the embroidery is all over full on Russian style. I like it 100% clean or full on embellishment to make that the statement.

Yeah, I'm picky,

Other than that I like that coat - especially the belt!

I used to follow Queen Raina's style a bit... but fell off. Sometimes I like Letizia and Charlene's style... but I like Meghan's style the best - though who knows what her royal style will morph into... fingers crossed I still like it.

Agreed on the coat style. I always love a good simple statement coat.

I do hope Meghan doesn't turn into an overdone Barbie with her clothing choice after marriage. I can fully appreciate the lack stiffness in her style.

Lovely story about Hiut jeans.

Who are Hiut Denim, the Welsh fashion company chosen by Meghan Markle? - Wales Online

LMBO! My favorite way of doing this is for nighttime though - a stud in one ear and a longer dangling and thin earring in the other ear is FIRE! Especially with the hair swept to one side.

I think the key with mismatched styles you have to be super intentional with it.

I continue to find her choices refreshingly different from other British royals. I thought the grey check a great choice with those jeans, love the 'messy' hairstyle and the concept of wearing two different earrings - she has a confident, individual approach to her clothes and looks very comfortable.

I love the top/jacket Meghan wore today. I thought it framed her shoulders beautifully. I also loved the boots and the coat. And the mismatched earrings was a surprisingly nice, quirky touch. I wasn't crazy about the messy bun today, I think a more polished hairstyle would have gone better with that top. But I don't mind it. Again, she is doing her own thing and I much prefer that over her trying to mimic other royal spouses. I don't ever want to see her favoring coat dresses and pill hats. I would hate that as much as some apparently hate her love of neutral colors and messy buns.

you expressed my reactions pretty closely. Was hoping the messy hair would not resurface, it looks as if she did it herself in the car without a brush or mirror. The all in black seems dull and dreary. Do like the theory top.

Personally, I prefer colour but now I have come to expect that this is Megan's style and the clear intention is that she will continue to dress this way. She is only a royal fiance for a little over a month and she will find a way of merging her personal style with royal style of colour to be seen more in the crowd. Although, it doesn't seem as though the crowds have any trouble seeing her.

I am sensitive to the fact that this woman has left her entire life as she has known it behind to become Harry's wife. The one thing that she still has left is control over her fashion choices. I wouldn't want Meghan to become a clone of the Duchess of Cambridge or anyone else as she would be accused of being fake. We have on record from her past interviews what type of style she favours. If she started dressing completely opposite to that, she would not be genuine.

Dressing for a royal role takes time. Compare the early and later years of dressing of most of the women who have joined royal families. It took tiime for those women to learn and it will be the same for Meghan.

As long as she doesn't wear anything inappropriate, I think she should be free to express her own style. I think the hair is fine--straightened hair that is naturally super curly and of African origin is never going to behave like Caucasian hair no matter how much you straighten it, without significant manipulation that can lead to lots of damage.

Pulling straightened hair of African origin back neatly/severely can cause a lot of damage and breakage. I do not straighten my hair anymore, but I know first hand how fragile chemically straightened hair can be.

I laugh at the complaints about 'another wrap coat'. Seems they come from the same people who defend kate's 50+ coat dresses/coats as 'they are her style, what she is comfortable in, her uniform.....'

I love the coat. Its styled after a tux, why it has the wider belt.

She looks fantastic under the coat. I love the tartan feel coat, and the boat neck is fantastic on her. It looks great with the jeans. Very fashion forward, wearing a great little coat with jeans.

Usually not a fan of booties, but this is how meant to be, with this style.

My only complaint is all neutral. I'd have loved the scarf she wore to have been in a great pop of color. It would have added to the look.

Happy we have a thirty something royal who dresses as such. I agree with comments here that Sophie and Lady Chatto dress very chic. They dress chic and appropriate for women in their fifties. I hope when Meghan is their age, she has some of their style. Its great we have a young royal embracing separates and accessories.

Has room to improve, but they all get polish over time.

She doesn't have to pull it back severely, she could put bobby pins in to hold down the sides, or put in a some styling gel. There are plenty of products like that out there for us black women.

I thought the coat was lovely and I liked the jeans. Wasn't a fan of the top and thought the hair looked quite messy. I noticed she kept pushing it back behind her ears throughout the visit, which was a little distracting.

I meant to mention earlier that she also seems to just like her hair loose and free. I don't think there have been lots of photos of her when she is not on the set of suits with her hair super neat and tidy, and much of the time we've seen her outdoors, it's windy and her hair is blowing around.

Part of me also wonders whether she wears a satin scarf at night.

I'm thinking she meant more like the satin caps/scarves most black women wear to protect their/our hair from breakage while we sleep.

I have on one right now as I prepare for bed.

This is making me wonder if the bun is because Meghan needs a touch up or a fresh Keratin treatment? She might not want to damage it too much with constant flat ironing.

I'd love to see her try a relaxed ponytail with her hair wrapping the tie and a slight pompadour in the front.

The humidity must be screwing up her usual hair routine.
