  1. Pretty, flowing, graceful dress and great for pregnancy! Also, I'm noticing that Harry's clothes look very sharp and stepped up. They are a charming couple.

    1. I completely agree. What a beautiful dress! I love the boots and bag as well. Great contrast.

      Harry has stepped it up. He is looking sharper lately. It usually takes a wife to give a man a little fine tuning.

    2. Pine, je suis tellement d'accord avec vous. Ils sont sympathiques et tout à fait charmants.

  2. This is lovely. The dress is very pretty and looks comfortable and elegant. Love the boots that give a bit of contrast and I like the simple hairstyle.

    I wonder if she wears socks or tights under her boots ...

  3. Like the coat and boots, but the dress is a no-no! I wonder why women have to dress in “normal” clothes and not looser maternity wear. The neckline of the dress is not flattering and a light flowing dress seems an unlikely choice for a cold winters day.

    1. Maternity clothes are light and flowing. I am not sure what the point of your comment is. You seem to contradict yourself.

    2. I think Tharien van Eck referred to the material of the dress-silk is a light, flowing material and very summery. I prefer loose maternity clothes either, just like the duchess of Cambridge of the swedish princesses wore during their pregnancies. And they weren't old fashioned at all. But honestly so far this is the most maternity like dress during Meghan's pregnancy.

    3. Exactly what chardonn8r says: maternity is floating and loose in form. Don't understand your comment . This is very much what we had to wear 40 years ago. I am very happy for the young women today; They have a choice. I love the dress, love how HRH wears it; Personally I find it much nicer when you see the shape of the body with the new baby-to-be on board. Beautiful couple!

    4. I think the point is that yes, this is a floating, flowy dress, but it is not a maternity dress. Meghan has had to tie the waist above her bump, which makes the bodice too loose and throws the fit out all over. If it was a maternity dress it would be cut to accommodate a pregnancy, and would fit accordingly. I don't personally understand why someone who is now quite heavily pregnant would still be trying to wear non-maternity clothes. They just don't fit!

  4. I quite liked the dress, but not in a snowstorm. She must have been freezing.

    1. Christine: But there is a warm coat and boots? And is there a snowstorm? I think she looks comfy and cosy in her outfit, and I like this unusual dress. Something different with enough "space". (Lovely interaction from the couple with the little kids, they clearly can't wait to have their own Baby :)

    1. Inside a building? No one else needed a coat.

    2. Earlier occasions have demonstrated that she isn't very, or not at all, sensitive to coldness. This beautiful dress has the advantage of being an "all around" the year dress. I love it. I think the distinction between normal dress or maternity dress is fading away. Woman can show their pregnancy everywhere at any time; no need to go back to the (very) wide dresses. I appreciate that. I was also looking forward to seeing her with boots.

  7. They make such a cute and happy couple. Wish them a lot of energy for all the important things that you are still going to achieve until they become parents. Then, at the latest their baby at least deserves a break.

  8. Beautiful dress, make-up and hairstyle. But I'm not a fan of these boots.

  9. Nice dress, but I felt much more comfortable wearing maternity clothes, and God, were they ugly 57 and 54 years ago, when I had my kids.

  10. Chiffon dress and boots a wrong combination.

  11. Meghan looks great. I like her with her hair down, her face looks much softer .
    Dress made out of chiffon and heavy looking boots don't go together.

  12. I really love that this dress flows rather than clings; I doubt that Meghan has decided to Just Say No to spandex, but this is a lovely change. The overall print is not attractive, imo, but the sleeves are beautiful.

  13. She looks lovely, I like everything here.

  14. The dress is very much a spring or summer dress and it looks rather cocktail too not for a day visit IMO . The boots just don't go with the dress at all way to heavy for such a light fabric as this. Why would she wear this in the depth of a British winter???? The coat is nice though

  15. I kinda of like this dress, but not as maternity wear and definitely not for the winter weather and boots.

  16. It is lovely dress but with the black light shoes as on picture with model.

    1. I can just imagine the comments if she had appeared in those shoes while it was snowing.

      Personally, I like both looks - I don't mind the boots and floaty dress combo but it does look very pretty with the strappy sandal on the model.

  17. What a smart combination of textures, fluid dress and soft suede. This dress is superb not your house in the prairie print, it brings a tropical sense to the otherwise dark backdrop. Very elegant!!

  18. Everything is right with this appearance.

  20. Sounds quite philosophical. What do you want to tell us?
