I really liked Meghan's junior navy ensemble and the hat was quite delightful. Needless to say, she kept her splash of colour to her clutch which was quite an on-trend colour duo in itself. And yes navy is a colour which I think Meghan really rocks.

I am waiting to see her step off the plane in Australia to see Spring colours of some kind.

Also, I wasn’t someone who cared about her being from Hollywood or whatever else you stated in that first paragraph so idk. I actually like Meghan just commenting on what she’s wearing today which I think would’ve been better in another, warmer fall color.
She doesn't do a lot of colors. She's always been up front about likely neutral colors. Which is why I find it funny people coming in here looking for colors. And I wasn't talking about you specifically, but a general trend I noticed.

Not sure I understand what you were trying hard to communicate.

Probably because some people would like her to wear more color anyway, despite her preference for neutrals. CP Victoria clearly likes her hair up- doesnít stop people from wishing it was down....

Navy isnít neutral though. Itís just dark.

Not sure how much more clear I need to be. She was wearing British designs too, not just Givenchy. You keep ignoring that fact and I've pointed this out to you at least 2 or 3 other times when you have complained about her wearing 'foreign' designers etc.

I think this is a smart choice----the lineup on that row was raspberry, navy, emerald green on the royal ladies and this is a piece that will serve her well in the future on outdoor engagements---it didn't catch the wind, is a versatile length, and will work well with a future pregnancy. If it fades her into the woodwork right now...so much the better. Only five months ago she was a high-profile glamorous bride in exactly the same venue as she found herself today. I give her props and look forward to how she uses this piece and accessorizes it in the future.

BTW, I haven't caught everyone's clothes yet, but it seems every female member of the BRF, except for Kate, was in either green or blue (navy) today? I've noticed some form of color coordination at other events too (Queen's birthday concert etc.). Are they actually coordinating or is this some kind of weird coincidence?

The Duchess of Gloucester wore a bright red outfit today. Catherine's cerise is a blue based color, so it will work with the various blues and blue based greens IMHO. I believe that if we are fortunate enough to see a very large extended family photo, that we'll see many of the colors found in the bridesmaids' sashes and the page boys' cummerbunds.

Her ensemble was largely Givenchy. When I last checked, that was French.

Itís a shade of blue. Not neutral to me. Black, white, tan, gray are more neutral.

Does anyone know why Meghan is wearing a stack of rings on her fingers. Looks quite bizarre to me.

Navy is considered a neutral color, especially when it's on the darker side. Blue is not, but navy is.

I noticed they are only on her right hand and its not unusual to wear two or more rings on that hand if the rest of your accessories are pared back. Since she flew so under the radar in navy and simple earrings maybe this was a little stealth bling. Just guessing of course. I really like the floral ring on her right index finger---it softens the look for me.
Once again....just guessing since I don't live in Meghan's closet. Really, I don't---I live in Kate's

Cause she likes them? She always stacks jewelry. These are just thicker.

I guess I see navy as more neutralish, if thatís even a term. lol But not as straight up neutral as white, black, tan, gray. I guess because Iím pickier about what Iíd wear with navy.

I seldom post, but as I looked at all the guests arriving for the service, I noticed many ladies were wearing very dark colors. Only the Queen and Duchess Katherine had on a colored dress. Even Beatrice’s dress was dark. I wondered, since there were ‘rules’ that went out to the guests on what not to do, men’s clothing, etc., perhaps the suggestion went out for ladies to wear darker colors so the only the bride stood out in her white dress. Other celebrity brides asked their female guests to wear black so only the bride wore white as the bride wanted to stand out...so maybe that suggestion was here also.

I loved Duchess Meghan’s dress and coat combination. She did not want to out shine the bride nor wear something that would bring attention to herself by wearing a funky color or hat. She knew it was a special day for Eugenie. Some ladies wore dresses while others did wear coats, as Duchess Meghan did. It appeared that it was cooler weather, windy for sure. Again with Duchess Meghan wearing dark blue, I wondered if that was a brides request.
