Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Mountbatten Music Festival at Royal Albert Hall

The Mountbatten Festival of Music features the Massed Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines performing over three nights in the Royal Albert Hall in London.

    1. yes stunning - the two look stunning. And if Diana was looking down she would have had tears in her eyes to see her baby son looking so proud and happy in the company of such a beautiful woman.

  4. It's a good looking dress but it doesn't seem to lay properly across Megan's neck and bust line as it does in the designer's photo

    1. Agree. I think she does not use alterations, or if so they need to tailor more specifically to her proportions. Such as having a higher waist, the torso should not be so long, it’s pushing up. A little off the bodice length and just a tiny bit more around for her waist and curves and it would have laid more smoothly. Don’t get me wrong it’s a GREAT color for her and I agree it is one of her best looks. My absolute fav was the blue one like this with the awesome earrings.
      She really seems to like that capelet on her dresses.

  5. She's very pretty in this dress - a much better choice than the blue Victoria Beckham dress she wore recently. Color-coordinated with her husband, too! :-)

  6. H&M knocked it outta the park!

    Thanks alot Meghan. Just when I thought you could not possibly be any more stylish, well, you proved me wrong. And I'm quite picky about my Royal style, at least that which warrants my time and opinion. I just skip over peeps whose style underwhelms me. For me, style is as much about presence and causes as it is about clothes and accessories.

    One can have a voice for self and others and still look and feel fabulous. That's exactly how my friends and I approach fashion, and it makes life's challenges more interesting and a bit less challenging.

    Once again, Meghan's confidence and posture add that extra element of style that this dress invites. A very striking colour story. I like this tone on tone interplay, balanced by a sleek, mod hairstyle and a handsome man in uniform.

    Happy to see them both happy!

  12. I love this dress. Doesn't she also have it in another color? Her hairstyle is chic, sleek, compliments the style of the dress and shows off her earrings. Sometimes when her hair down I feel like it overwhelms her delicate features but this style does not. I don't mind the red shoes but wish her clutch was a different color. Black or gold would have really popped off this poppy red.

    4. No, it's more of a royal blue and is by the same designer as this one, I think. Will try to find out the event when she wore it.

    5. Hi Frieda - it was a dress she wore in Fiji but it was a Safiyaa Official design as far as I'm aware. I believe there is an article in Hello magazine about it.

  14. The red is beautiful, but this dress needs to cut 1 element. It looks odd with the shorter shoulder capelet and the longer back cape. Maybe if it flowed as in 1 piece? But her hair and makeup look beautiful. And I love the all red accessories.

    Nothing to nit-pick here. Meghan looks wonderful. Everything perfect. Love the hairstyle off her face - and the more subtle makeup and lipstick. Harry looks dashing - a romantic hero out of an operetta.

  18. This dress is stunning-- easily one of her best ever looks.The shoes and bag are amazing. I just love them. Prince Harry looks fabulous as well Is it pure coincidence that her outfits this trip have been red, white and blue? What a shame that she is taking him away from us

    ReplyDelete
  19. That´s a spectacular look. The dress is stunning, and it fits her really well.
    I also like how it coordinates with Harry´s uniform.
    A minor quibble would be the accessories. The shoes are fine but the clutch needed to be dark red or black. The earrings do provide some accent colour but they get lost against her dark hair. Her nail polish is an odd colour.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dress is pretty, similar in style to the blue gown in Australia tour. But fit is off again. Hair and make up improved to previous engagement.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wonderful look, great dress, great colour. Ok with the makeup, but she did better before. I would have chosen silver earrings, these red ones don't have the correct colour to fit the outfit. But all together: great style.

    But I still don't like her exaggerated gestures all the time. We see them at always every event and I'm really done with this.

    1. Anna B, just curious... have you seen Catherine's exaggerated laughter and gestures? I have read in some blogs that she looks a little off.. not that I agree. I sometimes wonder if some of you need to have something negative to say about this woman. It feels like you are all hoping that they fail. I just don't get it. The outfit is stunning and they both look fantastic. Wishing them the best on their endeavors. I am sending them positive energy, perhaps it would balance out all the bad juju out there.

    2. What gestures? What is she doing?

    3. Anna, enFrance on appelle ça : la mauvaise foi . Elle n’a pas fait un seul geste .

      Delete
    4. As for gestures, this is how I perceive the difference: Meghan is a professional, sie acts, she can't help it, second nature. - Catherines gestures are layman gestures, for this reason "naturally imperfect", her own ones. It is never good to play out one against the other.

      Delete
    5. OMG!! How biased can you be. It's OK not to like someone, although a little silly to have such strong feelings about somebody that you know nothing about. Except for the garbage some read on the rags.
      1. There is nothing exaggerated with her gestures. Thousand of pictures taken,some will be better than others.
      2. So, you know for a fact that all the laughing and extreme gestures that Catherine, and Máxima do at functions are genuine.
      3. You are just making up stuff in order to critize this woman, get real and talk about what you may or may not like about her outfits, that's all right. Your statements sound like fake news😂😂😂😂😂😂

    2. You are fundamentally mistaken. Harry isn’t trying to chase anyone away. He just wants to have his family treated with dignity. Like anyone else. But he won’t allow the force of the pathetic media )and those who take them at face value) to drive those he loves into a fate like Diana’s. He is not just entitled to keep his family safe and living in peace, but also capable of doing it. He doesn’t value privilege and money above his family. I sincerely admire his much broader understanding of life and his values. Tanya

  29. They both are dressed exceedingly well. The smiles are straight from hollywood to make it appear as if they are having a grand time. She is reserved, he is sad looking, even with the smile, and the handsome dress uniform. The entire situation is sad, especially for the little guy left behind, who wont' get to know his cousins, his grandparents, great grandparents etc. The situation seems so depressing, I hope it has a great outcome for all involved. The gown is stunning, the best she's ever looked, he is the handsome prince, as always, just a sadness in his eyes.... JT

  30. I like how happy they seem to be.
    Good on them, it seems the choice they made was good.

    On the fashion end, I don't like either of their outfits - I guess it is just because I do not like the colour red.

  36. I honestly donot think she is beautifull : she has an average good face ( not so average nose), and on her you can see what a good visagist can make of EVERYBODY.
    She has a good taste for clothing, and I guess a personal trainer to stay in shape.
    This is a fairwell tour with an exclamation mark.

  41. Very nice outfit, clutch could have been non-red or a darker shade. And styling her hair like this is magnificent, so much better than any other non-updo-hairstyle. Worn like this it is a beautiful background and complement, instead of playing the main role by being all over her face and dress.

    @Tanya, "to drive those he loves into a fate like Diana’s." - you seem to miss the fact that serious restrictions for the media were put in place after Diana's death. Meghan could not (and was not) chased down by paparazzi/the media the way Diana had been. Not once. Facts about tabloids were known to her before she married. So let's call it what it is: She changed her mind.

    1. You think having the press publish a photo shopped picture that shows a monkey as your child doesn’t qualify as been abused by the press? Not everything has to be a cat chase. And no, in fact there are no amendments made after Dian’s death. There’s no restriction as to who can chase people on the streets. Even if things aren’t a carbon-copy with what happened decades ago, that doesn’t mean they are acceptable. Harry wants his family treated with decency. I don’t see anything wrong with that. They didn’t get a decent treatment and they don’t value status above their own happiness. You can have a perfectly wonderful life outside the royal family. I think we can all agree with that.

  44. A superb evening gown, luscious red. Beautifully tailored, love the cape/draped effect at the back. It highlighted the Duchess's perfect posture. Neckline is excellent. The shoes and clutch are stunning choices. The only thing I would change is the earrings, some lovely diamonds, but that is personal preference only. This is a elegant and very regal look.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The Duke and Duchess look stunning. The Duchess needs no diamond embellishments to enhance her particular style of grace and charm. She and Harry will be missedby many for their genuine kindness and caring. I daresay the Royal Family, sans the Queen, (and their palace minions) have no idea how much they have lost. Blessimgs to this wonderful couple.
