  1. Meghan trägt viele Outfits aus dem letzten Jahr von ihrer „Australien-/Neuseelandtour“. Damals war sie im 3.Monat, glaube ich.
    Denke, da sie immer noch ein paar Schwangerschaftspfunde hat, dass diese Kleidung bequemer ist und sie sie deshalb aus dem Schrank geholt hat (obwohl es keine spezielle Umstandsmode ist).

  2. Think this may be the most flattering dress Meghan has worn so far--she certainly looks a lot trimmer than in the baggier outfits she has favoured.
    I think it is great that she is recycling outfits, especially after the criticism she has received for the astronomical cost of her wardrobe, but maybe there's a balance to be struck. If I were one of the people waiting to see her I think I'd feel a little miffed that I was only worthy of repeats, when Australia/New Zealand etc got new outfits all the time--as if this is a sort of second class tour. I am certain that would never be the intention and I know it's a different sort of tour. Does anyone know why she's not wearing her engagement ring on the tour so far?

    2. AnnieM: I would not try to wear a huge Diamond ring in Cape Town or anywhere else in South Africa...

    3. I am sorry Anon 2:19, but I find your comment very rude and offensive. Annie shared her thoughts in a nice and respectful way, and in my opinion, she makes some good points too. I think there is no reason to react so unfriendly.

    4. I see your point, AnnieM.

    5. Love this take on jumpsuit dressing, and the colors are just right. @Annie. The tour is about the personalities, their empathy, their ability to connect with the public, and relay an image of The Firm as inclusive and supportive of their hosts, NOT their clothes. How do we know that Harry is not wearing the same biscuit colored and dark suits from the Far East, Morocco and Australia? His shoes, and sneakers yesterday are not new either. This is sexist. She is not a dress up doll.
      Asking why someone is not wearing their rings is an invasion of their personal life. A simple conclusion could be that they were advised to keep the showy bling to a minimum. After all, they are meeting people who have lost their homes, their heritage, their way of life, and customs of their ancestors. It is all available if one chooses to read. - MB

  3. I like her off-centered part when wearing her hair down. Tucking her hair behind her ear shows off her earrings. Olive green is a nice shade on her. The dress is slightly too long for me. (I would be be constantly steeping on the hem.) Not sure about her shoe choice.

  5. Not a bad looking dress,I like the stripes,but a tiny bit too tight and too long. She is rested and has a nice smile. I wish them the best on this tour.

  6. Nice to see the Duchess re-using so many past outfits on this trip. Setting a very good example.
    This dress looked better when she wore it the first time but it is still very passable this time around and it accentuates her glowing post-baby figure a little more. However, she looks healthy and radiant and you can't beat her lovely smile. I like her hair here very much too. It's loose but not untidy.

  7. I don't like the dress and it's ill-fitting.
    But I do love her side swept hair, it suits her face much better than parted in the middle. And of course I love to see how happy, relaxed and interested she looks. Very sweet.
    She is doing really well, together with her husband!

  8. I actually really like this look on her. She looks pretty, approachable and yes, it all looks like decent nod to her host country.

  9. it's not a dress, it's pantaloons, and makes her look fat, fat.

    1. Wow Lizzie, what a kind person you are!!
      I am sure you are the light of the party.

    2. @12:57 The people there obviously do not care whether it is a dress or pantaloons. This couple attracts well wishers wherever they go, and regardless of the silhouette, the colors are a nod to their hosts. This is a tr*lling fail. - B.

    3. You don't lite the dress- fine. No need to call her fat,

    4. Totally agree. I am not a big fan of her wardrobe.

    5. I said it makes her look fat, not that she is fat.

    6. Erm, lizzie... your comment makes you look bad, bad...

  10. Perfection! Unrelated, what happened to the usual layout of the home page? The "daily" stories are no longer listed on the left side of the page with a short preview and small photo. Instead, I need to go to the blog archive. Has anyone else noticed this change? Thank you.

  11. I do not care for these voluminous, long dresses and the fabric is not very pretty.

    2. You don't need to worry yourself about what I wear. If I do not prefer them I certainly wouldn't wear them. But since this is a website where people express opinions I will express mine.

  12. Hello everybody who posts here. I have been following this blog a long time. The comments here are not something I would want to read about myself, friend or relative. Fat, messy, unkempt, "better" than yesterday. These are horrible horrible comments. I can only ask that you really give some thought to what you are publishing. Have a nice day. /aa/

    1. Couldn't agree more. A good guideline to follow is if there are something we wouldn't say to our friends, family, face to face to a stranger or would like someone to say to us or our family we shouldn't say it either. Then we know it's mean and not behavior we expect from adults.

      Delete
    2. aa,I don't think any of the things you quote are horrible comments. Of the phrases you mention, the only word I would be unlikely to use directly to friend, family or colleague would be "fat" which I would probably turn round into "heavy" or "unflattering" and it's the only one I would be offended by ---even when true! :-(
      However, while courtesy and consideration are essential, the implication that we should only post positive comments should be resisted. There does seem to be an unusual backlash against negative comments about Meghan and yet Maxima and Victoria, to name but two, often, understandably, get really harsh criticism for what they wear.

  13. I like this dress very much. Olive green is beautiful colour on Meghan and the cut is interesting. - Siri

  14. Another suitable outfit - I like the well tailored jumpsuit and no, she doesn‘t look fat. As long as a few pounds more on the scale no longer becomes an ideology, everything‘s fine.

  15. Meghan dans une jolie robe déjà portée ; je pense qu'une seule bande suffit, celle qui ceinture sa taille.. L'autre ne l'avantage pas beaucoup mais bien belle quand-même !!!

  16. For me it is a lovely dress which absolutely appropriate for the occasion and most importantly looks comfortable for the wearer.

  18. Wow AA, I fully agree with you, there are words that are just rude, and an outfit can be criticized without demeaning the wearer. However, I remember your comment on a previous post calling Meghan affectatious and un-likeable, so is it acceptable for you to use those adjective that have nothing to do with fashion, but are truly personal? Some people even called you out on it, and then you come here and lecture other writers... WOW just WOW!!
    Well, I suggest that you apply your advice to yourself.

    1. Well that I would say to a true friend if I thought their behaviour was not ok. I don't think I am lecturing for calling out bad online behaviour.

    2. I was attempting to make a point. I.e. i have these personal views but i don't otherwise publish them. That was missed by you. /aa/

      Delete
    3. AA, Nope, I didn't miss anything , you published those words, called her the following:
      Affectatious: meaning, pretentious, artificial, fake, sham, doing something for show.
      Unlikeable: meaning, not having pleasant or appealing qualities.
      And you still have the nerve to call out people because they use words that generally refer to her clothing....
      Please give me a break!!

    4. @ 11:52, the constant comments about her behaviour without any examples are also rude. She has been nothing but gracious in the images that we have seen over time. Behaviour usually refers to doing something. If you have no evidence then do not imply otherwise. Freedom of speech is not the freedom to denigrate others for no reason. Belle

  19. Somehow this dress reminds me of the colours of Africa. Therefore I like it.Liz.

  21. I love this dress! Love the color and the stripes. The DoS isn't fat, unkempt or messy. She is a down-to-Earth person who looks like everyone else. She's beautiful get use to the fact she likes to dress in a more casual style, she can do what she wants. - Capt. Marvel

  23. Well I love the dress. It’s simple yet interesting and she stands out in a good way. She looks happy, friendly and engaged with those she meets. She and P. Harry seem to make a good team. (V.M.)
