Thumbs up from me for the looks Meghan wore ito both Anzac events. I would have preferred her hair to be more "contained" but I still like the looks.

Didn’t like her first outfit. Reminded me of Carmen Sandiego. I still think her clothes are either too big or not tailored properly.

A few thoughts - Meghan is a beautiful woman, there is no denying that. I loved the wide brim hat for the dawn service. And it paired well with the outfit. I'm not a fan of this coat. The shoulder cut makes for wide shoulders. But with the hat, it looked more fitting. Overall this outfit scored an 8 out of 10 for me. It's most definitely one of her better looks.

The Thanksgiving service outfit, really depends on the angle of the photo I'm viewing. The cut is beautiful from above. Some of the looks, where they cut at her waist, it looks heavy on top. And the length cuts funny at her shins making her look rather shorter than she is. But I do love the dress and the beret hat was fitting with it. Another solid look. She appears to be learning or getting more comfortable with her role and what it means for her fashion. Another 8/10.

I agree. In general, I still have an issue with most of her outfits not being tailored. I'm not crazy about either outfits.

The first outfit (gray coat with fedora). The coat is a tad too big in the shoulders and the button and pockets are a little too much together, but the hat is lovely and her hair is out of her face. Definitely an improvement, but still little things for me.
The second outfit is very lovely, but I'm not sure that the short waisted coat is a winner for Meghan, she is a very petite woman and this outfit, IMO, makes her look bigger than she actually is. I will say that all in all she looks lovely for this service and the length of the skirt is a good one for Meghan.

Loved her first outfit, especially the gorgeous hat! Second outfit I guess can be termed 'appropriate' . She does like longer skirt lengths and that usually works for her but in this case with this very heavy all-black outfit I think shorter would have lightened up the whole impression. JMO of course.

When Meghan began her public events she was doing the 'tour' and casual was the rule. Now in the last few weeks she's been doing actual royal events and her dress reflects that, I think. I would not say she has 'changed' so much. Suspect we will continue to see her unique (for Britain) casual dress on her walk-abouts.

I agree with this. Don't expect to see coat dresses at any of the less formal engagements.

Good point about the more casual nature of the walkabouts. It will be interesting to see how many of those vs more formal engagements there will be going forward.

She has improved her look in these last days- stockings, longer dress=appropriate look.

Yes just a little more tailored. Love the style...reminds me of the 40's/50's

Not liking the black outfit, the top is too boxy, it somehow looks shapeless.

It's super matronly, the length is unflattering, and it looks uncomfortable to wear.

Have to agree with you here. I think this is a time when she got clear advice to be conservative with no flair. Her 'flair' was saved for the morning service which I thought was super nice: hat and coat and hair and all. I think this black outfit is what we can expect when Meghan is playing by those unwritten rules we hear tell about, and she 'goes BRF'.

Considering it is a bespoke design, it was made for her for a specific purpose. She is getting things sorted as to what is expected at certain types of events.

You know who I thought of? Those chic women of the 30's and 40's. Also (as mentioned earlier) those classy ladies you see in the south when they are dressing up formal.

I love it. I love the material, the design, the outline..the hat is even better than the other beret's she worn. The dragonfly is a perfect touch.

I agree. The first thing I noticed were the shoulders.
