And they all looked great in the style.
Thanks for the other pictures. I was sure I'd seen bare shoulders on another royal.

Regarding Meghan’s style, fashion, manner, and general personality: I would imagine that she will continue to be very American. Of course, she will properly conform to BRF ways, but I expect that she will never seem very British.

Oy, that 2011 outfit was as awful on Sophie! Meghan's take is infinitely better.

And Meghan is 36 so to expect her to have a total overhaul of her personality, manner, fashion, etc. in the span of mere months to fit whatever people define as "British" was always going to end in disappoint. I am rather glad she is staying true to herself while adapting where needed and as respectful.

I didn't mind the dress Sophie was wearing, but hat looks as if it weighs 50 lbs! I think everyone looked very nice. I can't wait to see what Megs and Kate wear for Ascot.

I really like this outfit - the buttons off to the side and the jacket/skirt combo looked really good - quirky enough to still be "Meghan" but still regal. Loved the off the shoulder neckline.

And that HAT!!! Loved it even more than the Garden Party hat - and also wonder if she just turned the brim up on it? Don't know - but if she did do that, what a great idea! Now I want an asymmetrical hat like that one - so I can turn the brim up... loved that!

Also - Meghan was just glowing today - and I loved her makeup. Soft yet deep around the eyes... she's got that makeup look nailed.

Even better than how she looked was how Harry was looking at her... awwwww.

There was some discussion about that hat earlier today...I posted links of both hats fairly close up...I really do think they are 2 different hats and I like the Garden Party hat best! lol

I am coming to the conclusion that Meghan is from the Chanel school of dressing. Take one last look in the mirror and take one accessory off.

Do we have a "shudder" emoji? I heard wailing from my hat boxes in my wardrobe when I gasped out loud and read aloud the theories on Meghan's hat. Reshaping crowns, bending brims . . . ugh, step. away, from. the. hats. They are millinery masterpieces, works of art no less. Philistines.

My goodness!! Is it out of the realm of possibility that a hat could be built to be worn either way? I've had hats that I could change the brim on... well my mom did... Or maybe that's what I did to them so they wouldn't seem so fuddy duddy?

I had wondered about them changing the shape (Sorry Marg) because when I was growing up I was around a lot of folks who wore cowboy hats..and let me tell you some of those are are expensive...anyway, the good hat stores had someone who would experienced in shaping the brims...and use steam and whatever other methods to do it...so I wondered if they could do that with ladies hats like Meghan's too.


But I still think they are two different hats!!!

I think Meghan's outfit is both beautiful and appropriate. I don't mind the lack of a necklace but would have liked bigger earrings.

And is anyone else dying to know what shoes she wore?????

I thought Meghan looked stunning, the real fashion standout of the day. I loved everything about her look. I hadn't even considered that maybe she needed a necklace or bigger earrings because I thought her look was perfect as is. She's not a woman who embraces many accessories nor do I think she needs them. She's such a natural beauty and was glowing more than usual on this occasion...perhaps the result of a honeymoon tan?

It's most likely a different hat as analyzed (from photo evidence) and discussed earlier in this thread.

Indeed!

Earlier consensus is the two hats are different (via photo comparison).

The dress is nice and I like it, but I'm not sure it's good for Meghan.

A pale pink? I don't like the box-like effect of the cape round the shoulders but the rest is lovely. I like the slimline belt and the shoes.

Well...nobody can complain that her shoulders and colour of dress upstages the Queen!

Yes, she's certainly made a statement about her shoulders!

Ok...what colour is the dress? I've seen it described as pale pink, cream and beige.

I think it's cream. I thought at first it was a very pale pink.

It looks taupe/cream to me. I like it but I'm not sure about the cape effect...it seems rather restricting. So not a favorite look...I love the rest of the dress. I wonder if Givenchy is going to be her go to designer like McQueen is for Kate.
