Yep. And people like the DM writers feed the people's ignorance. They gloss over the British design talent. Unfortunately some readers are a bit sheep like, and believe just what they read. They cant be bothered to know that CWK is a British designer (even though she won the British design award).

The design houses are not the only sources of money from the fashion industry. The shops that sell the products employ people in the UK. The schools that train these designers bring a great deal of money into the economy both in tuition as well as the money they spend living there.

I think people will sadly find that Meghan never turns into a country wife they expect her to be. The traditional 'seasonal colors' and styles. This is not an European thing, this is an old tradition that modern fashion certainly has moved away from. Again she dresses no differently then many of the royal ladies on the continent. Kate's style is not 'British style' or even 'royal wardrobe'. It's Kate's style.


I hate Meghan's headpiece. I hate all fascinators. I wish she would wear a proper hat like Camilla one day if she has to wear a headpiece. Doesn't matter the size, I don't like any fascinators.

The navy and white dress looks simple but pretty. The white breaks up the dark blue to make it more day time. Miss it on the balcony.


Unlike Kate Meghan has not had months to get used to dressing her post baby body. She had months after George was born to do so. Charlotte and Louis just as soon as Archie true, but her second and third pregnancy.


She is not alone in the blue and white. Countess of St Andrews is rocking the same color scheme though more white. And both Louise and Zenouska are wearing darker shades of blue (Zenouska lighter in parts).

I quite hope she goes back to her whispy hair styling. This severe scrape is not flattering IMO. Great to see them though!

Is there a photo of Meghan standing showing off her outfit. I have only seen in carriage and then only extreme top section on balcony. I know she will wear again someday but I was just curious. TY

I like the navy blue but can't see enough of her outfit to say anything about it. I hate the hat just because I don't care for the style and I don't think it flatters anyone. It wouldn't matter who wore it, I would still hate it. I wish Meghan would wear more like the pink hat she wore to the garden party right after the wedding. I also liked the cinnamon beret she wore that first Christmas at Sandringham. She could also go really crazy and go big. Maybe she could get some ideas if QMaxima is at the Garter Service and Ascot.

Plenty of women are still wearing maternity clothes at that stage. Mothers should cut her a break.

She may be concealing her post-pregnancy hairline for a reason.
How I hope she doesnít read heavy criticism about herself today.

Are you referencing post pregnancy hair loss? If so, it's a little early, that usually happens around month 4.

I haven't really read any heavy criticism, just a lot of meh reaction to what she wore.

I don't like the severe hairstyles either...they don't flatter her truly beautiful face. I also don't like the hat or the dark colors for such a bright sunny late spring day.

But she still has her new mummy face and new mummy glow and that's what is more endearing to me than anything she is wearing.

Go Meghan!

It's blah. But, she's sleep deprived and I'm sure still nursing, so whatever works for her at this point. Glad to see her!

The hair loss can start as early as 1 month post partum. Every woman is different.

True enough, every woman is different. I hope that Meghan just liked the hat.

She'll be criticised if she does go back to the whisps, which I liked but which do invite touching, which she would also be criticised for.

I hope she can work out a happy balance between what she wants to wear and what works well for her in her role. I think that as far as possible she should wear the colours and styles that she likes without regard for what anyone else is wearing.

Meghan has recently had a baby. She looked fine to me. She was clean and generally well groomed. What more should be expected of her?

She is lovely, but the hat and the outfit are hideous. They make he look blah. Not elegant. Just blah.

Okay, I agree . . . more wisps or curls around her face looks far more flattering on Meghan and, if she is going to go 'severe' I want a real, honest to gosh, hat with a crown and a brim. I wish I could see her whole dress because I really, really, don't like the sleeves which were obviously hidden under a sort of wrap cover!

Actually, the dress looks like the wide white of the sleeves continues up to the neck and has white epaulettes with large blue buttons on the shoulders.

The point consistently made by some posters and me is that what is expected of the ladies of the BRF is to support the British fashion industry by wearing clothes by British fashion houses and showcasing them at key events that attract national and international attention. IMO, wearing international fashion labels that may or may not employ a British designer does not quite achieve that same objective.

Ask the same taxpayer about McQueen and they'd say it's British.

Very droll.

@jacqui24: Many thanks for bringing your sense of humour to the thread, wel deployed in this case

Very well put, Lumutqueen. I think mot people are quite sensitive to the fact that Meghan made the effort to appear a few weeks after giving birth, and any comments about her fashion choices need to be viewed through the prism of the sensitivities of dressing a post-partum body.

Very relevant point. I have always found it odd at how many clothes ladies like Catherine, Meghan, Sophie and the York girls seem to buy, when they could simply reuse some of their existing clothes a lot more.

The York sisters are not working royals so whatever money they spend on clothes, itís their own hard earned money- they can spend 10k on an outfit no one cares.

Both Camilla and Sophie rewear their outfits time and time again, case in point the outfits they wore yesterday - both were repeats. Also, looking how much some of the things she wear cost, Sophie is probably the least spender of the bunch- second only to Anne most likely, but given her minor royal status that is a very smart strategy.
Catherine also tends to rewear some of her clothes, and she tends to mix up a lot of high street brands.

As mentioned, and as I said earlier: I can think of at least five outfits Meghan wore during her pregnancy that could have been reworked for this event and would have still looked elegant and fitting a new mum who is still carrying some of her baby weight.

i liked the dress very much but the coat looks a bit matronly. i think it would have worked better for me with a hairstyle that was less formal, i liked her hair down last year. meghan also looks (understandably) tired this time.

I’m not keen on how she wore her hair or the style of the top bit of her jacket ....think a collar on her jacket would of suited her better ......apart from that nice to see her out and about and she looks happy
