I think the more colour comment Is going to become a broken record as she is dressing exactly how she always did and hasn't changed. On another note...this is the best that her hair has looked.

What I read was the dress code is 'Cocktail'. That's why I expected a bit more than business wear.

Yes the black/white/dark is going to get boring quickly.

She looks great of course but I agree it's lacking some umph. I just love she's wearing trousers for official events.

It looks better in some of the sites I've looked at--which seemed to have better access and thus, better photos.

It doesn't look bad at all..it's just underwhelming. This is business lunch attire.

Well....to be fair....Harry is in a business suit as are the other men. Some men aren't even wearing suits.

Now perhaps she is being tactful in her wardrobe choices so as not to distract from Catherine’s choices during the Scandinavia visits. A very flashy or overly glam look would call attention away from her soon-to-be sister-in-law.

I think her look this evening is both “suit”able and strategic. A sister-in-law can be your best friend, and when she is, it’s wonderful.

Meghan knows something about a star and a supporting player.

Very good points! There will be plenty of times for Meghan to be glamourous and scene stealing in the future!

Yeah.....that was kind of my first thought.

She looked nice. It just looked like something I’d wear to work. Her hair looked great though.

Hear hear! And she looks smashing in this. I don't expect her to start dressing like and English rose for a couple of decades, if at all.

The suit is not memorable but I love the choice. There was no need to draw any attention to her outfit at this event.

Desperately needs some colour, I’d have loved something like this:
http://images.asos-media.com/product...&fit=constrain
https://www.williamyoung1876.com/ima...suit-r6-c3.jpg
https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1eDDta...uit-custom.jpg

Or at least interesting shoes or jewellery.

Make that never! Meghan has her own distinct style and if she was playing it safe (only safe can explain blouse with a ***** bow) I don't think we can blame her as this is only her third time up at bat.

I think she probably checked out YouTube to see what the dress code is and when she saw it ranged from day suits to polo shirts for men she must have hit her head against the wall. Do I add a brooch or is that too 'flashy"? Should I wear a fabulous red blouse? No, everyone will be looking just at me. So, Harry's wearing that blue suit old blue suit (note to me = bin it) what does that leave me? I know, a Tux with a floppy bow and vertiginous heels . . . if nothing else they'll be wondering how I can walk on them.

I'd argue that the suit is memorable because of the choice to wear a pantsuit to her 1st evening engagement. Stylish and classy but still uniquely Meghan.

Have to agree with Terri Terri. It may have been billed as a "cocktail" event, but I'd say that was more of the exception than the rule. There were lots of polo shirts and khakis in that crowd. Across the board, I think Meghan's done a nice job of dressing for the event and considering the other attendees. I'd love to see her go full glam but then the pitchforks will be out that she's too Hollywood. Maybe that's the strategy...keep wearing understated style at events and then BOOM kill 'em with the wedding gown.

And sorry folks the neutral colors are here to stay.
