HM and Meghan would never wear similar clothes, so comparing the two is just pointless.

Other women in this particular memorial service wore sleeveless dresses, so clearly it wasn't unsuitable dress for the occasion.

Yes, a memorial service where multiple people felt the dress code was laid back enough to show shoulders.

From Dawn Service. I’m ok about the hat. I’d prefer something that doesn’t have the soft outside ring. But yay, we moved on to a real hat!

Yum on the coat. Cascading hem. No ID yet. Reporters are saying KP is not giving official IDs so far, probably out of respect for the event.

Note she’s wearing hose today as well. So, it’s not just for HM’s benefit. She’s going to wear them at more formal events and likely forego them for less formal events.

They don’t give ID for Anzac Day

At last a hat and coat suitable for the occasion
Very nice look

Meghan looks nice. Agree with your summary. Love the hat!

It’s interesting that she needs to be more dressed of than the events call for here, but was crucified because she was more dressed than the athletes and to wear sneakers at IG tryouts. And mind you, she’s not informal by any means with that dress.

And she’s not yet a royal as many like to point out on other more convenient occasions.

A good point. Imho she was dressed suitably for this memorial based on the way other ladies were dressed. I'd like to think that the people taking part in the memorial were aware of the proper dress code.

Brimmed hat! Yes it's a nice hat.

Royals dress for the occasion. Besides the queen, they don't wear coat dresses and pearls to every single event. They dress for the occasion. Meghan didn't look out of place among any of those people in attendance. She was properly dressed for the event. But I guess she needs to bring out the cardigan, pearls and southern church hat for some people.


Anzac day:

She looks great. I love the coat, beautiful choice. And the hat is great

I think Meghan looked lovely on both occasions. And at the Anzac Day Dawn Service specifically, I liked both the brimmed hat and the coat. She may have worn hose because the early morning event was in the open air and it looked as if it was very cold!

I like this outfit on Meghan, very appropriate and BRF-like.

For the record, I thought her ensemble for the ANZAC Dawn Parade was really lovely and she did Harry (and HM) proud.

A hat with a full brim!!! I'm doing a happy dance. Meghan looks great in a hat. She rocks that vacation fedora religiously. Hoping this is a sign that all berets and beret-adjacent styles will be cast out of her closet.

The coat was also pretty fantastic. My only quibble was perhaps one too many rows of buttons. But that's really a minor nitpick.

I love the wide-brimmed hat, but I find something off about the gray coat. The shoulders look very wide.


Not keen on the black outfit, though the hat is cute.

LOVE the grey coat. I hope she wears that again! Very warm touchy greeting with William, that's nice to see.

Her second outfit is just lovely...I'm ignoring the beret part which actually isn't too bad this time. This dress reminds me of what a southern woman might wear.

Great clothes day IMO.

I like everything about the 2nd outfit - appropriate, stylish, and a good hat.

My one niggle is this material that Wickstead insists on using - reminds me of crimplene.

Two nice looks, although I'm not sure that grey is Meghan's best color--or that shade of grey, anyway. I like her in the black at the later engagement much better, although I'm kind of over the berets. Fedoras aren't my favorite hat style either, but not a fan of berets in general. She wears it well, but...meh.
