The Duchess of Sussex visited a women's refuge in Vancouver

On January 14, The Duchess of Sussex visited The Downtown Eastside Women's Centre in Vancouver, Canada, where she is currently living with her son, Archie. A photo from the visit was shared on the centre's Facebook page with the caption, "Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle". The purpose of the visit to the centre - which provides basic needs and support services, as well as skills development to disadvantaged women - was to discuss issues affecting women in the community.

Founded in 1978, DEWC is one of the few safe spaces within the Downtown Eastside exclusively for self-identified women and their children. The center provides service to the Downtown Eastside community characterized by high levels of violence, homelessness, addictions and poverty.

During the visit, The Duchess wore a Row cable-knit swing sweater in antique white. Meghan was first spotted wearing the sweater as her character Rachel Zane in the Suits episode entitled “Bad Faith”, September 19, 2013. The Duchess also wore a pair of Le Chameau ‘Jameson’ quilted leather boots in caramel.

  1. Meghan in this way proves to take care of people in need without the spotlight, good and brave; her clothing is appropriate and she looks in great shape

    10. Well, Monica, I'm afraid it's not your decision whether there will be updates about Meghan's duties, events, attendings, etc. She is still a duchess, a royal, and this blog is about the fashion of Royals.
      It is up to mrs. Helen Electra to decide if she will keep us updated or not. I for one hope she does, simply because I love royal fashion.

    12. Please Monica. You jealous? She gets dogged for doing the SAME THINGS as Kate did. Why don't you check out the bias, it's ridiculous from holding the baby bump, to eating the avocado. They both did the same things as modern moms. All this hate of her is BS. Why the hate? What's she done that's too bad? She's doing her royal duties as Kate does. They're not leaving the royal family. They decided not to do as much, I think Diana would be proud of them. Grow up. - Sadie

    2. They - Harry and Meghan - have NOT sued her father. Instead, they sued the tabloid that published her private letter to her father - a clear violation of privacy. To my knowledge, it is precisely this particular tabloid that has decided to use Meghan's father as a witness in the court. So no reason to blame it on her or Harry. Instead, you should ask why on earth does a father give an intimate letter sent by her daughter to journalists...??

    I'm puzzled by the hate lately. Yes, I understand the questions, the anger, the confusion, even sadness and disappointment... but this is more bullying, hate and rage than reasonal talk.
    Give the Royal Family time, give this couple time and give the people time to settle down, to get used to a new way of life and finding a way in it. Spreading hate and dozens of hate comments are not going to change anything - it has no use.

  15. It’s so unfortunate to read the vitriol on social media. This is not the first time that the uninformed people mobs against public persons. Everybody is up in arms about this couple receiving public funds, which it hasn’t been confirmed in any way. British people pay about a pound and a half yearly to maintain the Royal House. Meghan and Harry’s wedding brought several BILLIONS to the country, and not to mention tourism and the fashion sales. Catherine also brings quite the revenue but not to that extent. The Crown has always known the material value of the youngsters and will continue to support them as long as they are an asset.

    That being said taking a seaplane to visit a charity seems a little tone deaf. I think the Sussexes have a difficult road up ahead to navigate as they attempt to forge a new path. Every choice they make in the upcoming weeks will be scrutinized and they will need to think through the pros and cons of each decision.

    1. You’re over simplifying it. Of course you would love your child but if they were a VP in your business and wanted to work part-time for your competitor, using their high profile in your company to enrich your competitor, and still demanded your company pay for their car, etc. you would have to let them go or else it would be very bad for your business. Especially if they were so public about it against your wishes- your stockholders would be very upset and it would force you (and your company) into a very public display of difficulty. The monarchy is so much more than just a business requiring things like duty, self-sacrifice, accountability— all things which directly contradict the self-promotion and merchandising these two declared on their website they want to do and still have taxpayers foot their bills, especially through Charles. Letting them go and be independent, it’s the way they’ve done this and the weird definition of “independent” they’ve defined. Demanding the funding but not following any of the rules is unfair to the people of the UK & Canada. Monica is right.
      On a fashion note- love the boots & sweater.

    2. @glo. Who is this competitor that they have chosen to work for? What convoluted reasoning! At least quote from what they
      have actually written. There were no demands of any kind. Process their words rather than trash tabloid speculations. The main goal of any parent is to create a self sufficient child who can function successfully outside of the family of origin. Would you rather him growing old and bitter weighed down by duty and service? Meghan has gone 2 oceans away and they are not embarrassed that they could not keep her or the other 2 ladies he dated. He deserves our blessing for a successful life. Life is short, let the man be happy. The others can carry the crown.

    3. Yes, that was my question for Glo as well. What other competition are you talking about? There is no competition for the BRF. Please don't make such obscure and incorrect comparisons. In fact H&M have said that they will continue to support and do work for the BRF, only not as much and without the strict rules laid down for the Heir and others. For the 6th in line, I see nothing wrong with H&M wanting this.

    4. I replied before but it didn’t get posted- probably too long. The competition is brand competition. The Royal Family has a very specific brand that is very clearly defined for many reasons. The Sussexes according to their post want to define their brand as something else. So you have to make them very separate.

  27. Very nice to see that Meghan is participating in her new community. @ la Seine..in hindsight it looks like negotiations were in progress but the aides were stalling and hoping to change their minds. Arriving without the baby was a huge red flag. Harry it is said was asked to put his terms in writing, and they were leaked. There was some catalyst that caused them to go public,and for Meghan to leave. Harry does not belong to the British public,nor does he deserve to live in his brother's shadow as the nice uncle who plays with other people's children and keeps Kate entertained at functions. He deserves a life of his own with his own family. It was very disappointing to see the family leave them to be pummeled by the press for days instead of issuing a more positive statement. MB

    1. I think the way it went down is what most people have an issue with. Unlike the times the press looks for a thing to make a crisis of, this made a crisis happen and it was selfish and unnecessary. I happen to agree they should carve out a role for themselves since there are others now in the line. It makes me so happy to see Diana's sons happy! It's HOW it happened, so rushed, giving grief to the queen who has already had a tough year, doing it without any seeming thought for how it would affect others is the part I for one am completely disappointed about. Many of the same people cheering them on - thrilled he made a good and happy match and that she made such a fantastic foray into the life (genuine warmth with people) would have preferred and I think could reasonably expect a more mature way of moving into their next phase of life.
      It's not hate; it's correct to be let down when actions are so self-centered. Showing up at things and having people fawn over you does not take sacrifice or by itself even warrant much. Sacrifice (for this role, for your family, including a husband) means you stick with it when times are rough, not run. THAT's the upsetting part about the last week.

      So, yes, she is beautiful, charming, smart, but lacks some basic character traits, I think. My fear is there will be no learning moment for her because she is a celeb and they will always some who applaud. Even sadder.

      Anyone annoyed I said this will be happy to know I will stick with the point of this blog now. Thank you to the blog admin for this wonderful space.

    2. @Dell. This is not the first time the queen has lived such a situation. In fact she is queen because someone else walked away from the family to live a normal life. Who are you to suggest that a life of showing up to be fawned over is enough for a grown man who wants to live a more meaningful life? He has been hinting for some time that he wanted to live out of the country and the family knew this. Read between the lines. Something happened for them to do this. Leaving H&M to be treated like pariahs by the public and gutter press may be an indication of what they have to deal with in private. MB

    3. Well said, MB! I completely agree with you on every point.
      I especially agree with "..Something happened for them to do this." I've particularly felt about this after they returned without Archie to the UK. That's a big thing for new parents to do when their baby is less than a year old. Most never want to be separated from their infant. It sends a strong message.
      I support their decision and they have my best wishes for their new life.

    4. Dear Dellbabe68, I agree with most of your points. To simplify, Meghan thought she could reform the monarchy Hollywood style. She could have abandoned this illusion if she had prepared herself properly, which means reading about history, social customs, the European aristocracy etc. etc. Perhaps she would then have realised that her life would become too restricted. INSTEAD she entered this new life with naive expectations and unrealistic ambitions. She might be smart in a certain way but she is not wise and I find her comportment quite alarming.

  32. Obviously a few of commentators here believe in fairy tales. This couple, especially Meghan, plunges the monarchy into a serious crisis. The canadians don‘t want royals living in their country and they don‘t want to pay for their security and the english taxpayers don’t want to support a luxury couple as well. This is an opportunity for the monarchy opponents. Harry and Meghan blame the Queen who wanted to prepare for her retirement. She has put her own life at the service of the monarchy and now Harry stabs in her back. If he wants to live as a citizen, then without any titles. … Bad times to talk about fashion.

    2. monty, it seems that you are the one believing in fairy tales, like the fantastic 4. This dramatized & exaggerated "crisis" has been created by the gutter press and the uniformed trolls. The fact that the 6th heir you the throne decides to take a reduced role is nothing but an anecdote in history. Please inform yourself about your own legacy, do you truly believe that this is relevant to the Crown? Unfortunately, the gutter press knows that this couple sells, but what sells more is if they are surrounded by scandal.. so, do you believe that William is a bully and has been mistreating Meghan? Do you believe that William had had an affair recently? are you OK with him threatening the tabloids and asking for privacy? is all right for Will to do it, but not for Harry? So do you get to pick what rumors are true?

The queen has lived her life as she chose. No man should have to ask his grandmother for permission to pay attention to his wife away from the family.

    1. @Anonymous (Jan.16,3:45PM) Then you are not properly informed. The Queen wasn‘t born the heir to the throne. When her uncle Edward abdicated, her father had to save the monarchy. Elizabeth never wanted to be anything other than lady of the manor and breed horses but the duty came first and she became the Queen after her fathers early death. After all, the Queen should have given this little brat a piece of his mind but she let him pass with everything, his whole life.

    3. Monty (7:11), once her father became king, QE knew that she was next up because they did not have a brother. As the heiress, it would have been like William asking to leave today ....a true crisis.... The sixth in line has no real impact on succession and you know this. Duty cannot keep him warm at night if his spouse and child are thousands of miles away. The Queen looks like she could easily live another 10 years, (unless you put her into retirement) what is he supposed to do? It seems you would be happy if he continued to take the money and show up like a robot for the hand shakings and baby kissings. Everyone gets to look for a new job if the old one is not fulfilling, even 35 year old brats! No one should be chained hand and foot to their family... there is a term for that.
      The fact is that... 1. the 'crisis' was created by the press. 2. 'the cake and eat it too' is repeating the words of P. Morgan like a parrot. 3. They have expressed a desire to earn their own money which means they do not expect granny to continue paying. ..According to the rags he arrived early and spoke to his grandmother alone. You do not know what was said. All we know is that there will be clarification later. A little empathy for a young man trying to bridge his old life with a new chapter is not too much to ask. ..Manon

  34. Unbelievable all these nasty and judgemental comments about a woman nobody here knows in person. Where oh where does all that hate come from, created by the English gutter press which is the worst press in the world. What they are allowed to write has nothing to do with a free press, they hunt people down till they die, if necessary. When H & M want to escape all this, some people becoming furious, can you believe it, because they are sick of being a sitting duck for the press and want to live their own life.
    GO, you two, I wish you all the best!

    1. My thoughts also
      This hate has no place in any forum, much less a fashion blog.
      Please moderator shut this down

    2. Who was chased until they died? Do you mean Diana? All the paps chasing her that night were French not English. There are suggestions that the French driver tipped them off.

      The photos of her dying were NOT published in the British press, gutter or otherwise.

      Honestly, I think any publication that shares this kind of information is trash - and I don't think the British have the monopoly.

      In this case, Meghan has faced a lot of absolute crap from the press which happens to be British but honestly the vilest stuff has been from keyboard warriors on social media all over the world.

      The Daily Mail is particularly awful but is read by people all over the world. It isn't a question of just the British tolerating it - there are people everywhere who lap it up, so it makes money.

  35. Dear Posters, for or against Meghan, the point is, in what capacity is the Duchess of Sussex visiting woman shelters ect. in Canada, and very Media effective at that. Is this the "new progressive role the couple wants to carve out for themselves", (and it seems by themselves!) as they said in their statement to the Queen. That is the whole point, what will this new role entail and is it good for the Monarchy? It does not seem right, they can't have it both ways in my Opinion.

    1. Yes Janine your point is fully relevant, particularly "they can't have it both ways". In addition she really seems to be obstinate in being convinced she is doing the right choices. Yes of couse to her commitment, if her role is acceptable at the light of the latest developments, but NO to continue to use eg her "pilates" coach, who has to fly from the US! Where is her sense of new concerns, environment, cost etc....

  36. To me they can stay where the pepper grows... There's nothing against them living their own life. BUT it's hard to support people who obviously want to keep the cake and eat it, too. When plain Mr and Mrs Miller are able to do good to other people without making a fuzz of it Mr and Mrs Mountbatten Windsor should be able to do this, too. Otherwise it's plain PR strategy. Mrs Loki

  37. I love the relaxed, cool and easygoing fashion of HRH Duchess of Sussex. As for all the other stuff - the tabloids, palace courtiers + certain British outlets have been unkind, racist and relentlessly wicked. I am glad this Royal Couple stuck it to them!!! God bless guide, guard and keep Meghan and Harry always.

  38. Do not agree. This is not a thing of dislike or like somebody. Remember the Duchess of Cornwall or "Duchess do little"... Dehumanizing Always Starts With Language.
    Once we see people on “the other side” of a conflict as morally inferior and even dangerous, the conflict starts being framed as good versus evil.
    How does this happen?
    Successful dehumanizing, however, creates moral exclusion. Groups targeted based on their identity—gender, ideology, skin color, ethnicity, religion, age—are depicted as “less than” or criminal or even evil. The targeted group eventually falls out of the scope of who is naturally protected by our moral code. This is moral exclusion, and dehumanization is at its core.Dehumanizing always starts with language, often followed by images. We see this throughout history.
    I know it’s hard to believe that we ourselves could ever get to a place where we would exclude people from equal moral treatment, from our basic moral values, but we’re fighting biology here. We’re hardwired to believe what we see and to attach meaning to the words we hear. We can’t pretend that every citizen who participated in or was a bystander to human atrocities was a violent psychopath. That’s not possible, it’s not true, and it misses the point. The point is that we are all vulnerable to the slow and insidious practice of dehumanizing, therefore we are all responsible for recognizing it and stopping it.

    Dehumanizing and holding people accountable are mutually exclusive. Humiliation and dehumanizing are not accountability or social justice tools, they’re emotional off-loading at best, emotional self-indulgence at worst. And if our faith asks us to find the face of God in everyone we meet, that should include the politicians, media, and strangers on Twitter with whom we most violently disagree. When we desecrate their divinity, we desecrate our own, and we betray our humanity.
