During the conversation in the talk show, The Duchess has shared the update that her five-month-old daughter Lilibet is now teething.

  1. She wanted privacy, right???
    Both outfits are hideous.

    1. Agree well said. These TV interviews she participates in are annoying. ANO

    2. It is time to refuse to print comments which continue to distort the meaning of the word privacy. They are a source of dumbing down the populace, especially people whose primary language is not English. Learning continues throughout one's life. Privacy for others must be measured against what would be considered personal privacy then making the same adjustments for others. This is an indication that learning has taken place.

  4. I like the blouse very much but in my opinion Meghan took away her originality and beautiful design by wearing it stuck into trousers. Besides that I don't like the combination - those trousers and that blouse together. Nice blouse, complete look not so much.

    1. I agree - the top looks more like resort wear and should be worn out as shown on the model.

  5. Love the blouse . Gives some interest to a black and white combination.
    The Duchess seems to be staying loyal to American designers.
    Oscar de la Renta died in 2014 and it would be nice to know who is now head of his fashion house. Maybe his adopted son.
    Details of this famous fashion designer (if you are interested) can be found on ..........

    1. This is a fashion blog, someone points out 😏, but other websites also show photos of her embarrassing, bizarre action and appearance during the interview.
      Must be happy she can call herself Duchess, but nobility obliges, but not for Meghan Markle.

  6. A very pretty blouse on her. I think the outfit would look better if she’d worn light coloured trousers. As it is, the dark bottoms cut her off visually. (V.M.)

  8. Love it! Her hair is in soft waves although I think a bit too long. I think the dark brown coloring is more flattering than the jet black. Her makeup is great, not too heavy. And the outfit is classy but not boring. It’s an A+ for me!! On a side note, I wish they would share pics of baby Lili.

  10. Good of Meghan to tuck in her blouse. It goes well with the shape of the pants.
    Glad she didn't wear it like the model on the picture. With wide pants it is not beautiful. The great designers rule is : wide pants tight top, wide top tight pants.

  12. Nice blouse. Picking the white/off-white colour seemed a clever move, as it is considered the colour of innocence. 'nuff said.

  13. Meghan looks good. I like the blouse. The detailing on the sleeves is beautiful. The cut of the pants works well with the proportions of the top. I think they are slightly too high waisted. Make-up is nice- not too heavy. I like how her hair is styled and the warm brown hair color. But of all the people she could do an interview with why Ellen? Yes, they are neighbors but it is Ellen's last season for a reason.

  17. Here's the definition of privacy for some of you who is always screaming this tired and pathetic line of "I thought they wanted privacy".

    Privacy is define as "freedom from unauthorized intrusion one's right to privacy"

    Doesn't Duke and Duchesses of Cambridge's have a certain level of privacy?, doesn't Prince Charles have a certain level of privacy?

    Why is it so hard for some of you people to understand that the Duke and Duchesses have a right to a certain level of privacy.. everyone has that right!

    1. Exactly my thoughts. If one must believe some of the bloggers privacy means never come out again, staying locked up at home all the time. To me it means not to interfear in other people lives, leave everybody free to think what they want and to go where they want.

    2. Perhaps the issue is that none of the others you name
      (a) bleated on about how the lack of privacy was destroying them
      (b) appear on overrated chat shows to talk about their private lives

    3. Thank you for saying this. The haters see what they want to see, so they can say say what they want to say to support their agenda. Privacy is about having some control of your life and what is reported. You were correct when you pointed out that other members of the BRF have a level of privacy, one that Harry and Meghan never had. They went through a level of scrutiny and had the most vile things said about Meghan and their so-to-be newborn. It is not at all difficult to understand that they are not hermits, nor should they be. Going out of their home, being spotted somewhere, or attending an event is not about seeking attention. They are living their lives on their own terms. They are not as news worthy in the US as they are in the UK. Believe it or not, people of note go out and walk their dogs, buy groceries, put gas in their cars, and take their kids to school and no one gives a second look. As long as there is a wicked thirst to vilify these two, the yellow press will continue to print stories about them. Earning a living does not equate to attention seeking, either. Harry knows one thing. He was brought up to be a royal mouth piece. Aside from his love for the military, he is working with the skillset he has. One last point. Harry and Meghan were never given the same protection others have been given. Andrew's alleged behavior is appalling. He is protected to a level that Harry and his family have never known. I have no use for the palace's historical behavior. Some well placed statements in the beginning could have changed the entire trajectory of their lives. Keep up the negative dialog about Harry and Meghan and you are feeding into the tabloids plan to sell papers and get clicks and views. You are making them money and hurting people you don't even know, will never know, and can't possibly know the truth about because you will never know the entire truth. ~d

    1. Exactly they are not working members of the Royal family anymore and they are not living in the UK anymore . They are living in the US so they can go where they want to go and live how they wish to and give as much interviews as they want whether you like it or not.

    Black and white looks good on the Duchess. I don't like this blouse, very voluminous and bulky, obviously the design of the blouse.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The blouse is nice, as are the pants. But they don't go together and they don't go with Meghan either. These make Meghan look massive, at least when she is standing.
    Otherwise she looks pretty and so does the makeup.
    Personally, I don't like much what Meghan wears. Either clothes don't fit her or her clothes are not appropriate for the occasion. Or the clothes don't suit her, like here. The black Prada dress a few days ago was a nice exception.

  21. Ai, choosing Ellen wasn't a very smart decision after all the accusations made about her. And I agree with Annie M at 18:47. I know what privacy means, as a definition, but what they say and do looks very contradictory to me.
    Anyways, Meghan looks good. I like her long shiny hair, it looks so healthy. Make-up is good too, not too heavy and quite natural. But I don't like her outfit. The sleeves looked like she had a row with Harry and he just went for the scissors. That's the first thing that got in my head 😅 The black and white combination is good but it would've looked better if the trousers wouldn't have been so wide.

  22. @~d, as usual a pleasure to read your comments. Every time I see a post about them , I can only think , let the shower of judgmental and hateful posts begin….One can agree or not with their decision of leaving their Royal duties, although I don’t think is even relevant for the general public, we will never know the exact nature of the disagreement, nor does it affect anybody outside their immediate family.
    Paradoxically, many of the haters gush over Charles and Camilla whose actions were not only inmoral & cruel, but detrimental for the Crown, however I can still opine on their fashion choices without bringing up their moral turpitude every single time.
    Can’t even talk about Andrew, who is protected by the firm.
    Meghan & Harry are treated like criminals by the consumers of sensationalism. They have a new life and they have to find a way to support themselves, and as long as it is legal, who cares? Why read and write about them if they dislike them so much?
    I like her blouse, pretty and feminine, she looks happy and relaxed. I wish them well.

  23. Fashion wise, she looks fine, nice blouse, hair and make up is OK.
    I wonder how many of you actually saw the whole show. I did. It made me cringe, the things Ellen made her do. Squatting, eating chips all at once. etc. Ridiculous. And we found out that Lilibet was dressed as a skunk for Halloween (albeit a Disney one)

    1. I agree with you, I liked what she wore, but she came across as quiet silly during the interview and I can't work out the point of it. It seems like she considers Ellen a friend but she is just using her. What she said about Harry and how he loves the new life, tells me that she doesn't know her husband. He has given up his world and she says " he loves the weather". It just tells alot.

    2. Excellent comment. I felt the same, it was demeaning for the Duchess and cringe watching. Very embarrassing.

  24. Fashion: do not like the blouse, it looks tattered, and stuck into her trousers is not ideal for her.

    Privacy: Annie M - I totally agree with you. For a Royal couple to 'say' they do not want attention, it ruins their lives, so they are stepping away from being royal and participating in public events, these two have certainly made their entire lives 'about being in' the public, and airing their lives on interviews to put down the royal family, and on tv interview to chat about their private lives and children. They are also in the process of working with a huge streaming service to produce a documentary, or story they chose to show, about their lives. So privacy is relative to them, and they make a mockery of the word. jj

  25. As a fan of Meghan, I am appalled by the way her so called "friends" have used her to benefit for themselves on these horrible tv shows. Ellen is on her way out, and Meghan may be taken down with her. I am so hurt that she continues to prove her critics right by being so unroyal. Come on Meghan, please give us a reason to still love you. Ann B

  26. After reading all of the comments, I will share that when I saw the first pictures of this blouse, I thought that it looked like something Mary would wear. I can only think that this would be considered a beautiful blouse if it was being worn by Mary and not by Meghan. I think it is a beautiful blouse and she wears it well. I also think she is in pleated pants because she is still working on her body, and they are on trend. Meghan is short waisted, not that she wearing her pants too high.

    Comments about Meghan's appearance on the Ellen show being such a bad idea contrasted with memories of the interviews given by Charles admitting to adultery and Andrew's interview discussing the accusations against him don't play well with me. Royal behavior indeed. At least Harry and Meghan were no longer representing the BRF (as is pointed out ad nauseum here) when they spoke with Oprah. ~d

    1. More embarrassing than Andrew’s interview or Charles admitting adultery for the universe to see? After those, this seems like a very innocent thing. I had a good laugh watching Meghan, even though Ellen’s pranks are already boring after so many years doing the same silly stuff, I would say that if she cared about the judgment of strangers ( such as all the people commenting here) she won’t have done it, but obviously it won’t have changed anybody’s mind, and she shouldn’t care anyway. I am sure that the Royal Family is not pleased with these appearances, but it seems that at this point their rift is irreparable, and she is not representing them. So follow them or not, but the vitriol against these two is just ridiculous.

    2. And the Duchess of York was on a French talk show this week (Tuesday 16 Nov). for the promotion of her book.
      Lots of negative comments about what she wore, what she said, how she said it and her general presentaion as a Duchess.
      It wasn't a good image for the BRF.

  28. It makes me smile, how people see H&M through rose tinted glasses ! Their PR company must be patting themselves on the back !
    The reality is oh so different!
    They left the UK wanting to ... I don’t know, because their stories and actions differ !
    Their titles bestowed on Harry, was in agreement to them becoming full time working royals ! They managed a whole 72 days, before they left !
    They wanted to control their image. Yet she demeans-herself on the Ellen show !
    They want privacy ! But have no problem discussing others members of the RF, who are not in a position to answer back !
    They denied any involvement with the book FF. Even going as far as lying to a British court of law ! Claiming forgetfulness! Yet she can recall with clarity a car she had years ago !
    Harry claimed the snap of a camera is triggering! Yet had no problem facing the same cameras during their visit to NY !
    Meghan introduces herself as the the DoS at any given opportunity, and yet in discussion with Gloria S, she was quoted as saying ‘we’re all linked not ranked’
    Is it any wonder, people question this couple ! Is it hate ? No! It’s common sense ! If you say one thing and do another, and you do it for public consumption, you yourself are inviting opinions good and bad !
    I respect those that still love Meghan, but for those of us, who question her and Harry’s behaviour, please let’s not call it ‘hate’! That’s neither fair or accurate! We can agree to disagree respectfully surely ! Ana

    1. @Ana, I agree that perhaps the word hate is overused nowadays, would you call this constant judgement of their actions, profound dislike? The point is that lots of comments on this thread that should be about fashion, generally become an aggression towards the choices they make. You have absolutely no idea what happened between this family in private, history has shown what they did to Diana, and by no means she was a perfect individual. We know nothing about their internal disagreements, but I would say that if Meghan is such an attention seeker, she would have stayed on her role, living a life of luxury and privilege, the fact they ripped the bandaid and decided to raise their children away from the Crown, tells me that their life had become unbearable. I am not a fan or a hater of any of them, I don’t know them, but I wish them a happy and healthy future regardless of their life style.

    3. Ana, I only point out the hypocrisy. Not that I agree with everything they do. For instance, why does Andrew still have his HRH? His banishment from public life looks to me like some sort of acknowledgement of his alleged behavior, which is vile, yet he remains protected by the firm and he keeps his HRH. Who supports him? Why is a grown man being supported? In my opinion, his alleged behavior is far worse than Harry, the spare, deciding that he didn't want fulltime royal life. He never made a secret of the fact that he didn't like royal life, even before he met Meghan. He is just the first, aside from the Edward and Wallis situation, to be brave enough to speak out. It should not be considered a crime to live independently from one's family control. It is, however, considered a crime to behave in the way Andrew is alleged to have behaved. I am in a country that was founded by people that left a country controlled by the crown to have freedoms they were not allowed to have in their homeland. While every country has their problems, I will always be grounded in a the belief that an individual has a right to personal freedoms to choose how to live their life. While I find the lives of royals fascinating, I do not agree with a forced life of serving as a royal if one chooses not to. Harry could have been given an agreement along the lines of Märtha Louise, Madeline, Joachim and Marie...always there when wanted and needed, still having freedom for personal projects or family time. We all know he wanted to keep his military assignments, his true passion. I will always believe the decision to make his and Meghan's participation all or nothing was punitive. I will agree with you that we should agree to disagree. I would never put the happiness of one of my children over my "job". I would work on a compromise. The public fallout was ugly at best and might had been avoided had there been more communication. It is sad all around. No matter how we feel, there are two sides, and I believe that is getting lost. it is too easy to place blame on one person. Respectfully, ~d

    4. @CB & d. Thank you for taking the time to share your perspectives on the situation !
      The calm and detailed manner, in which it was written, enables the point to be made and to be heard, more importantly, it gives ‘food for thought’! So I’m grateful to you both for that !
      Albeit, I still have many questions re the situation, at least that can be discussed in a respectful and considerate manner.

    5. The RF has not been silent, they have used the Rota to release selective information about the Sussexes, more in the nature of throwing raw meat to the press wolves. The constant unprofessional leaks from within the palace walls cannot be denied. One BBC reporter said he was told by someone WITHIN the palace that Harry did not have permission from his grandmother to name the baby Lilibeth. Why was that necessary? Family business should not be fed to the wider public. There is also the spiteful leaking of the bullying claim (a private HR matter in any decent firm) to the Times ahead of the Oprah interview. H&M's 'behavior' ( word never fully explained) is always held up as wrongdoing even though THEY lived the experience and not the judgmental onlookers who should never take sides in another family's disagreements.
      Picking at threads in the fabric of this story, in terms of triggering, and the use empty titles that cannot be traded for anything of value shows a certain incapability of looking at the canvas as a whole. There were disagreements among the family members, and the Sussexes as adults are allowed to do, moved away to start a new life. The Queen is not our grandmother, why be offended for her? Recollections may vary, but the Queen herself wrote in 2019 that they had been negotiating their departure for months.
      Having questions about personal details of the lives of other people is the same as consuming gossip. It serves no practical purpose.

  32. Ana1, fully agree with your comment, and by the way, seems like all the offended, hurt, and aggravated by M&H departure from the firm, aren’t paying attention to the “Cash for Honors” scandal involving Prince Charles staff, that at the end of the day reverts from the pockets of the Saudis to the Prince….this same prince that ( allegedly) denied his son extra protection for Archie…. Yes, the leaks are exactly of the same nature that they used against Diana, because they have to make people believe that they are untouchable and distract and reshape the public opinion. Obviously H&M aren’t perfect individuals, but the campaign against them could have been stopped by the Crown, unless of course it benefits them.
    Example: when Meghan talked about the racism of some member of the family concerning Archies skin tone, the response should have been, “ we weren’t aware of this fact, but it is horrible, and had we known we would have intervened, as racism and cruelty would never be tolerated… we will protect the duchess…. Blah, blah, blah…” ..but instead all we got was William’s angry respond to a journalist. OUR FAMILY IS NOT RACIST!!!
    Is that the best he could muster?

  34. @ D I don't think you comprehended the comment above, the issue is not about believing the episode that Meghan recounted , is about the cold, angry response from William, saying " my family is not racist" that response has nothing to do with the fact that somebody within the firm thought that the skin color of Archie would be an issue. You may chose to think that it was a fabrication of the Suxesses, I hapen to believe it.

    Sadly, I believe that comment also. The Firm did not want to be embarrassed by Meghan . She did not fit into their vision of a monarchy.
    Maybe they should do away with this monarchy after Queen Elizabeth dies. I am fed up with the whole lot of them and their double standards. King Edward was not allowed to be married to a divorcee and was later exiled. Therefore, neither Charles not Camilla deserve to sit on the Throne. The Princess of Wales paid a horrible price for C&C's selfishness. And let us not forget that the shameful role the Queen played in this sham as well. She used Diana as the Sacrificial Lamb! Shame on her!
