She looks lovely today. Her own style, but a bit more of that early-Spring element included. Stamp of approval from me! And Harry has really been stepping it up now that he has Meghan walking next to him. It also helps that they really got that glow.

I'm not impressed either.
It's rather boring, like she didn't make much of an effort.

I don't think it's planned unfortunately. She would be mad to plan to lose weight while her wedding gown is under construction having already had fittings.

Diana lost so much they had to recut her bodice and they still ended up having to sew her into it on her wedding day
We do not want a repeat.

I like this look she has brought in some color.

(..)

But either way, I like the outfit. I'm not sure what kind of "effort" some are expecting her to put in? She wore some nice pieces and that's just typical for royal engagements with a bit of personal style put in. I'm not seeing this taking any less effort than any other royal ladies when they conduct daytime engagements. There are, of course, times that they'll dress up more like the Commonwealth Day Service, but that wouldn't have been appropriate for this visit.

I approve.. the colour, the hair and [especially] the bag and shoes.

ALL Chic.

A SKIRT! YAY.
Coat and hair are still boring but it’s an improvement on the trousers.

To me she put in more effort today .... you don't look like this if you just grab things from the neutral part of the closet and go.


I hope this continues. It suits her and makes her look warmer.

Yes I noticed the color choices too. She's wearing the same colors in the flag for the Republic of Ireland.

Elegant! A kind of casual elegance, due to the materials used as well as draping. Looks great. Hair is very beautiful. Love that they are back to their 'signature handholding' as the headline said. She is clearly changing her style to suit her position but all her, understated and unique. Nicely done.

I like the skirt and the sweater, but I'm not sold on pairing them together. There is just something off about it. The coat again looks too big on her (it's wearing her) and the hair thing is simply not my cut of tea, unless you are headed to the gym. And will someone please check her ears at the palace before she goes out without earrings again. For some reason, that is driving me crazy, the outfit doesn't look finished without earrings.

Err.. NO [she wouldn't make so controversial an ERROR]. The Flag of the Irish Republic is Green/White/Orange. Ms Markle wore Green/White/Red today...

From looking at the photos, the shoes have an orange hue to them.

Meghan gave a nod to the Emerald Isle in a forest green skirt by Toronto-based Greta Constantine, while the white came in the form of the same Victoria Beckham cashmere jumper she wore for her engagement photoshoot.
She teamed the ensemble with rusty orange suede shoes by Jimmy Choo and covered up witha $750 Mackage waterfall collar coat.

I love it that she gave a nod to Ireland with the colors. Watching video clips several folks in the crowd apparently commented/complimented her on her clothing.

Of course happy to see color! The coat is the only thing I didn't care for. I'm not a fan of that loose bath-robe style coat.

Depends on the lighting. They look dark red in some pics.

I agree that the lighting does play a part but in some photos those shoes come across as orange.

I agree. If she deliberately wore the colours of the Republic of Ireland while in Belfast (Northern Ireland) it would be a terrible mistake.


EDIT: it wouldnt IMO be her fault but her advisers.

Followers of 'Ladies' Royal Fashion regarding Ireland will know that Orange is NEVER worn there, not by HMQ, or any Royal Duchess..
Green, yes, White, yes, but Orange NEVER.. it is simply too controversial and liable in interpretation as 'political'.

Nothing boring about this look to me. She looks business like and elegant. I just love her style.
