I agree and I think she looked perfect for the occasion and the colour was gorgeous.

Nice look and she's not trying to outdo the bride. Harry's vest and socks match.

I like this, and she looked coordinated with the rest of the family. Everyone expects the DoS to wear skin fitted clothes, and I'm realising that is not her aesthetic. This look is very 'Meghan.'

Dull, dull, DULL...

It is entirely possible to be interestingly dressed, and STILL not 'outshine the Bride'...

Was hoping for more color today..Kate wore color and didn't detract from the Bride.

Kate stood out in comparison to how the rest of the family was dressed! Meghan would be crucified by some of the same posters praising Kate if she had worn pink and Kate had worn navy.

The style and color are really boring. I do like the hat though.

There might have been a few that criticized Meghan for wearing color, but most people wouldn't have had a problem with it. I know I would have been happy to see Meghan in some color.

At least it isn't black. Meghan looks nice, but so far I'm having a hard time finding anything more interesting than that to say. I'll have to watch this one in motion again.

It is entirely possible to be well dressed in colors other than black and navy.

I’m sorry but nobody could have outshine Eugenie today. Cara Delvigne wore a tuxedo today. Look at Catherine wearing raspberry for petes sake.

Wearing a colour wouldn’t have made her stand out, it would have made her less boring in my eyes. Even emerald green which she has favoured numerous times would have been better.

Could not agree more.

Interestingly, she still can't seem to find a suitable British couturier!

Is she wearing a coat dress? All I can make out is a coat like dress...?

I get that and I agree as I would like to see her wear more color as well. However, I disagree that this was the occasion to do so given the media attention it attracts like when she wore the yellow dress. Clearly she didn't want to draw that kind of attention today.

It looks like there is a dress underneath the coat.

She could of worn any color (green, a lighter blue etc) and been safe. It draws a ton of attention because she didn't wear color...doesn't matter either way.

Navy is a color last I checked. Meghan seems to prefer darker tones, other than her blush colors, she’s not all of sudden going to go pastel. Even when she wore green, it was more of an emerald.

This seems more like a light coat that can be buttoned up than a regular coat dress. I can see this being reworn without being buttoned up.

To me, this is just not a celebratory outfit at all. All I can say us, give her time, perhaps she will understand how to dress for a British wedding.

Who knows, perhaps she may even find a British fashion house to source her clothing from!

No she's worn that sage olive green for Louis baptism ..loved that on her.

Unless Clare Waight Keller starts working for a British fashion house, there is little chance of this happening for big events like these anytime soon. She is loyal to Clare, which is a good thing. For everyday wear, I hope she does begin to incorporate a little bit more British designers, however, I'm not going to get in a tissy about it. As long as she continues to rep Scottish handbags, it's all 'cool beans' to me.
