so twice makes constant....

I think so too! I like the color and style of what she is wearing. Very nice.

Agreed. Is she bringing over some additional interest? Of course. Overall? Not really. This is the BRF. People are always interested. She is just adding on to it.

Exactly.

Back in the winter when Meghan was 'hitting the ground running' with Prince Harry, many of us were complaining that she needed to add bright colors to her wardrobe. I was among those who got tired of seeing Meghan in black. However, in looking back I must reiterate my initial feeling that Meghan was cognizant of not being married yet, and she was seemingly trying to wear styles that suited her aesthetic and that were appropriate, without trying to overdo it with overdressing or calling a lot of attention to herself. All eyes were on her anyway. By remaining casual, yet stylish, she managed to carry off everything she wore very well.

I would have liked to see more color, but it was winter so that may have been part of her thinking for sticking with dark colors. And also, just wanting to stay low-key.

In the spring, we saw a few brighter colors, including greens, creams, white & navy. And now that it's summer (after the lovely white of the wedding)... Voila! There have been two outings with Meghan sporting light shades of pink. And it's a breath of fresh air to see her in lighter hues. I'd love to know what she wore on her honeymoon, but we never will.

So, it's on to June 14 in Cheshire with the Queen, and Royal Ascot the following week.

She looked fantastic. The color and style suits her. Great first appearance there

It does seem slightly different hat. While I love her hair, looks beautiful curled, I do think her hair style from the garden party works better with the kind of hat.

As for appropriateness.....the queen's advisor is working with her. She certainly would have told Meghan if it was no appropriate.

I cant wait for Chester with the queen. And hopefully Ascot as well.

Not my favourite outfit, I could have done without the bare shoulders and flying hair. I guess it needs time to finally find a Duchess style.

Late to the party, but I think the DoS looks very pretty. I love the hat and the hair, and the color of the suit is beautiful on her. I'm not a huge fan of the large buttons, but overall I think she did well. I'm neutral on the off the shoulder look, and am hoping it doesn't become A Thing for her, but I also don't think there's anything inappropriate about it.

Bare shoulders really weren’t a good look. Colour wasn’t bad though. Meghan looked really nervous today.

Everything looks nice on Meghan, only thing I am not sure about is the off the shoulders dress. While the dress is gorgeous it is questionable for this event, it would make a great evening dress for a reception or dinner or date with hubby, not Trooping IMHO. Even though she might have gotten advice from insiders on the dress, for me, covered shoulders would be more appropriate for this event. Hat, Hair, make-up, tan, all look great on her....

The Countess of Wessex had a bare back...showing skin is not that uncommon among the royals.

It´s a great look, especially considering the fact that this is very first Trooping. I have no problem with bare shoulders. They are only shoulders, but the other women were all more decked out so she did stand out.

Meghan's looked perfect. Best look for me.

Her hair was lovely, make-up perfect. I loved the neckline of this. It made what would have been IMO a dated outfit look more contemporary while still entirely appropriate.

I didn't see any nerves from her at all.

Regardless of shoulders or back, neither is IMHO good for any royal event like today.

**And we are all allowed to have our own opinions here, not everyone is a Meghan or Catherine or HM or whomever fan**. We all here should be allowed to voice our opinions without anyone else giving grief, so no need to say Meghan is perfect in a sense for she isn't as neither is anyone else. Some need to get a life here.........

Have to disgree:

Countess of Wessex Front: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/20...8542534925.jpg

Meghan Front: https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail...re-id970462700

https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/event/...re-id970273928

Meghans bare shoulders are exactly that, she's got a bardot style top on which pretty much sits just above her chest all the way around off her shoulders. Sophie has a square missing the back of her dress across the top, she does not have bare shoulders. I think for me that's the issue here, the exposed shoulders.

I think maybe it is the buttons that keep me from loving the outfit. I like it, just don’t love it.

Her hair was styled beautifully. I hope she wears it like that more often.

None of these lovely photos show anyone looking nervous on this special day for the Queen. Even at her wedding, Meghan looked quite calm and full of grace, soaking up each moment. There's a lesson in that for everyone. All of the royals are looking well-dressed as usual:

I appreciate your opinion and you’re obviously a huge fan of Meghan’s, but posting links to Meghan fan sites to back up your opinion isn’t really objective.
