Thank you, tihkon2. On positive note I do like the hat but the colour make her looked washout, especially next to Camilla's vibrant dress

Love the hat and that she <gasp> has every hair in place it looks like, finally. Don't like the dress color or style, once again I find it really boring.

WOW. I haven't really been a fan of her daytime look since her engagement was announced but it looks like she finally got the memo.

Elegant chignon, beautiful hat, elegant outfit that is not wearing her, makeup pitch perfect.

Excellent first outing for the new Duchess of Sussex.

Everything else is elegant. Very prim and proper.

Meghan has time to bring the color. It's her first time out as Duchess, and she doesn't need to seem like she's trying to grab too much attention.

Nice view of the back of the dress.

Slight update on the dress: Meghan's 'Flavia' dress by @Goatfashion is wool with silk sleeves & silk-chiffon décolletage & sleeves $790/£590

Well, I really like the outfit - understated elegance and very light and airy to wear for a sunny garden party. I do particularly like the hat because of the wide brim.

I do hope she wears more hats. I think she looks better in them than the berets.

That hat is a homerun. Not a huge fan of the outfit, but the hat more than made up for it

Yes very elegant. As was the Duchess's back stroke!

I agree...very charming.

I bet they sold out already too.

Absolutely stunning from top to toe! Happy to see that she is wearing her hair in a chignon and that she's wearing stockings (two of my sticking points with most women -- JMHO)

I really like this whole look, except for the tights, wish they were not there (or maybe tights with more transparent fabric would've been better). And finally we get a non-messy hairstyle. Great first appearance for the Duchess.

I am very pleasantly surprised - I think Meghan really made an effort to deliver a tailored and polished look for her first official outing as a Duchess; and I think this is in no small part because it is in honor of her father in law. I have no doubt that "modern Meghan" with her messy bun and casually sloppy style exists - but she knows how to 'duchess' it up when she needs to and this was a very respectful outing. well done!

Not just in a chignon but with a twist and NO bits hanging around her face. I think that is quite deliberate as it provides a perfect base for her hat.

I like the minimalist style of her dress and yes, she's wearing stockings. Neat as a pin from head to toe.

The men are dressed rather formally, so I think she looks appropriate. I don't recall many engagements she's been on where most of the men were wearing ties.

The hat looks gorgeous and APPARENTLY the hair, too! Wow, that's an improvement.

P.S. SO, unlike what many on this forum were saying...her hair can stay put...!

The dress is lovely but again, ill-fitted to my eye.
