On Saturday, Charlie van Straubenzee married Daisy Jenks. The van Straubenzee family has been close to the Wales family for years, and William and Harry grew up with Charlie. Some people half-expected to see William and Kate at this wedding, but the Cambridges might still be in Mustique, God knows. So in their absence, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex attended the wedding, even though it was Meghan’s 37th birthday and chica probably just wished she was at the beach.
Meghan once again decided to go for a somewhat darker look for a church appearance. I get that she doesn’t want to wear a shade of yellow so pale that it reads as cream in nearly every photo, but I would like to convince her to try some lighter colors, especially for church appearances and especially in the dead of summer. This colorblock dress is by Club Monaco. Her shoes are Aquazzura, and her hat/fascinator is Philip Treacy. She looks lovely, and she also looks like she’s finding a balance between “chic duchess” and “I’m not pulling focus from the bride.”
As for the bride…her wedding gown looked like a million other wedding gowns, but it’s pretty enough. I don’t have a problem with anything here other than the fact that these two grown-ass people thought it would be “fun” or “cute” to do their church-exit on a tuk tuk, or a bicycle rickshaw. I guess we’re supposed to think it’s fun or twee or charming. I kind of think they look like a–holes, but what do I know?
As for the other stuff, like the fact that the British media is still reporting every little insult lodged at Meghan by her father and her deranged half-sister… The Sun did a dumb story on how of course Meghan could not and will not speak to her father, which DERP. And Tom Sykes at the Daily Beast had a story about how the Markles are not the first family to try to cash in on their royal connections, but something something Meghan should see her dad. No. She should not. Cut him off completely.
