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.
Sophie may not be as 'flashy' as others, but if you look at the labels she wears, she spends a LOT more money then you seem to think. For all the criticism of Meghan, Sophie wears a large amount of foreign brands. And not just foreign but high end like Gucci and so on. She gets away with it without the criticism because she doesn't get much attention due to her role.

Meghan has worn a number of high street and lower budget brands along the way as well. She mixes and matches like the rest of them. Considering she has only been married for a year, and during that time she had an ever changing baby body, its not surprising she hasn't re-worn more then she has.

But if you go back a few pages, you will find lists of things she has re-worn which people conveniently over look. Just like conveniently over looking the lower budget items.

I agree that Meghan looked rather sombre yesterday. She looked more like she was attending a funeral rather than Trooping the Colour. I'd love to see her wear a bit more colour.

A miss from Meghan. The hat and hairstyle did her no favours.
The dress and coat didn’t fit well ( I understand she’s barely 5 weeksish postpartum) and the colour is too dull.
She needs to start wearing brighter, happier colours.
And while an updo is great, it’s doesn’t have to be so severely pulled back

I think it was great that Meghan got dressed up and came to a big public event less than 6 weeks after her first baby.

This was not one of Meghan’s best outfits, however she is still dressing a full figured postpregnancy body. And probably has not spent a lot of time having her hair done, so the scraped back bun was an easier look to put together.

I agree with everything, except that list is in the maternity wear thread.

In terms of repeating, she started repeating as early as during the engagement. And as much as the tabloids like to print things that will jack up numbers both in item and price, we’ve gone through some and determined that a good chunk of the list was also pre-Harry.

its's not that she is not pencil thin. She just had a baby. The hat is awful, looks like a plate fell on her head. And the dress is just unappealing. I, usually, disagree with more color, as it is her choice, but this color and look sucked the life out of her.

I wasn't a fan of the dark color but in this case it made sense as she is clearly nursing. And as she is trying to figure her new body out and this was likely the longest she was away from Archie in weeks, I get the concern of leakage happening. It does happen and dark colors can help mask it.
