I’m in love with this coat. I guess I’m partial to blue! Do we know who the designer is?

Doria lives in LA, so she is used to warm temperatures. 70 degrees F isn't really that warm for her-LA is in the mid to high 80s this week.

Was talking about Meghan, not Doria.

I also think that it’s better to be more sensitive to the fact that she is a British Royal now and some in the British public may not like her wearing so many foreign brands. I think it’s a fair criticism or concern. Not everyone will agree but that’s ok.

I like her outfit today! She wears this particular shade of blue very well.
I agree. As a member of the BRF, I would expect to see her largely wear British fashion brands, with the occasional "foreign" piece thrown in for good measure.

I love the shade of blue for the coat - it really suits her. Also keen on the coat and the skirt combination. A very well judged choice for this engagement. Better still is the obvious pleasure and warmth in the faces of Megan. Mum and Harry.

This was a wonderful occasion where the smiles and genuine warmth of all those present made for a unique situation. Meghan looked wonderful in that coat (I think the breeze was a little nippy in the open) and her top and skirt were not too formal or "royal" to distance her from the people she has spent her time with.

It was quite something to see all of the women wearing their "best" dress for the occasion and Doria really hit that elegant but not "posh" look right on target. But it really was the overall atmosphere that showed through, the smiles, laughs and inclusiveness made everyone look lighter and brighter.

After watching some of the footage of Meghan and Harry's arrival, I think the reason the coat may have been included is because when Meghan was getting out of the car there was an obvious "Marilyn moment" with the skirt flying up. Meghan covered it quickly by turning away and pulling the coat closed, but the addition of that coat may have been for exactly that reason. If so, very smart on her part to avoid a wardrobe malfunction on her first (not actually completely) solo engagement.

Meghan's coat is gorgeous and I like that she added a bit of colour to it. It's clear now that she's not a lover of bright colours and prefers subtle colours like this shade of blue when she wants to liven up outfits. I wasn't a fan of the pleated effect of her skirt at first but now I think it looks good.

We all know that the Queen favors bright colors because, as she's stated, she has to be seen to be believed. Perhaps Meghan is intentionally sticking to subtle and neutral shades and colors so as to create the opposite effect. To be seen as part of what is going around her rather than standing out.

That's my thoughts anyways.

Well, here’s to hoping we’ll see a lot of beautiful blue in the future. The Duchess of Sussex said in Queen of The World that her something blue was fabric from the dress she wore on their first date sown into her veil.

I posted a link about that in the 'General' thread for them. It is very sweet. Maybe she can start wearing more color...I'll take blue!

True, it was a life saver however, I noticed the other ladies serving were wearing coats as the front of the tent but took them off later. Perhaps the wind had a distinct autumnal nip in it.
