Duchess Meghan wore a stunning, caped Safiyaa gown in London this evening

Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex arrives at The Mountbatten Festival of Music

Last November, in what would be one of her final events as a full-time royal, the Duchess of Sussex attended the Festival of Remembrance. She looked incredibly frumpy in a puffy, bespoke Erdem, and I absolutely hated everything about her ensemble. Looking back on it, I think I understand it now: maybe it was Meghan’s last-ditch effort to “fit in” with the fictitious “royal protocol” and dress how everyone was telling her to dress, like a housewife in the 1950s. But now, on her Farewell Tour, Meghan no longer gives a sh-t. She’s not going to dull her shine or dampen her sparkle.

Tonight, Meghan and Harry attended the Royal Marines charity event. Harry wore his Captain General uniform and Meghan matched the red in his uniform beautifully. She wore this Safiyaa gown, with a motherf–king CAPE. Earrings by Simone Rocha too. Imagine looking at these photos and thinking that Harry would choose those musty racists over Meghan. Meghan’s entire wardrobe for her You Coulda Had A Bad Bitch farewell tour is the “real Meghan.” Clean lines, sleek, body-con, bright colors. Girl’s not in mourning for her “royal” status. Girl was born with it. Those Petty Bettys can never take THIS away from her.

In motion too:

    I was hoping you’d cover this today. She is on fiiiiiire. Get it, girl! And, look at Harry in his uniform. Hot stuff!

    • Indiesr says:

      A. Keys…“This girl is on fire”…a standing ovation!!

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      WOWSER! Girl is not playing. Woohoo!

      ETA: just watched the video and wish I had her posture!

      • Kay says:

        If only Kate had Meghan’s posture 😆

      • kellebelle says:

        Yoga, baby!!

      • carol says:

        seriously, how does one get a posture like that becuase I am willing to work for it but I have no idea how!!

      • Lady D says:

        Can anyone recommend a good beginner yoga tape? There are so many out there, I’m not sure where to start. I’ve never done yoga and I would like a DVD from a good instructor. It’s the same with online videos. How do you know who’s good and who’s going to get you hurt with their ineptitude?

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        @kellebelle and I’m thinking Pilates too.

      • Malika says:

        Lady D, I would recommend Dansique Fitness’s Pilates and Barre videos. I know you asked for yoga, but she has amazing videos that get into the nitty gritty of poses, and is very knowledgeable and beginner friendly. After two months of her videos i now know what it takes to have good posture.

      • Some chick says:

        I like AM Yoga by Rodney Yee. It’s gentle – good for beginners – and he explains it well. It’s a short video (maybe 20 minutes? ) so you could totally do it before work. Mine is on a DVD with other instructional videos of his. I like him a lot as a teacher. (Bonus: it was shot on Maui, so the background is gorgeous.)

        Enjoy! Yoga always makes me feel better. And for sure improves my posture.

      • Melissa says:

        Kanta Barrios is a great yoga instructor and has a bunch of videos streaming on Amazon Prime.

    • Olenna says:

      Yes! 🔥 🔥🔥

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      They are the only royal family members that have “IT”! And they are knocking it out of the park with this visit (their appearance, body language, glowing faces). I’m so jealous, but in the good way.

      • Chica71 says:

        Everything story on Fails is positive about these two today.. They got their clicks obviously.
        Kate trolled Meghan yesterday with her blue coat (same color as dress in iconic shot) with her visit to bookstore. Meghans pics with the blacks girls is Fire and I love the white outfit she wore to National Theater.
        These two gave Britain the last royal tour in Britain..never seen this before

    • Nev says:

      You Coulda Had A Bad Bitch.
      You Couldn’t Have Said It Better.
      WORD.

      • khaveman says:

        You Coulda Had a Bad Bitch tour. So true. She looks so confident and Harry looks relaxed and happy.

    • bamaborn says:

      Harry and Meghan…please stop! You’re slaying those haters.

    • Anony83 says:

      I have mentally dubbed this The Lizzo Tour (though I’m obviously not the only one to have thought of it) because she is just out there showing everyone of those petty, gaslighting member of the Press AND the Royal Family exactly what they could have had. I mean, it is especially hilarious because it is coming right on the tail of Kate and Wills’ “tour” of Ireland which honestly featured some of the most unfortunate outfits Kate has ever worn (and I actually usually like or at least don’t hate Kate’s clothes. I guess I’m not as anti-button as some others).

      The contrast between how striking and beautiful that Meghan is looking vs. how frumpy and dated Kate looked could not be more pronounced. I almost feel really bad for Kate – she’s still stuck in the Firm with all the pressures to look a certain way (and that way is NOT fashionable no matter what the Daily Fail tries to say). Also, as an aside, Kate really needs to stop channeling Princess Di from the ’80s. Not only does it not look good on her but it just reminds everyone of how dysfunctional this family is and why *exactly* Harry was so excited to get the heck out of there.

      Those pics of Meghan and Harry in the rain from the Endeavor Awards are some of the most beautiful pictures ever and they just look so happy and in love. And Meghan looks just as radiant here as well (and Harry even manages to pull off that ridiculous uniform). They have single-handedly destroyed the narrative about how sad Harry is about leaving the Firm. That is not an unhappy or regretful man. Anyone with two eyes and a brain can see that.

      • Izzy says:

        I was in Nordstrom today and there was a Topshop dress that looked SO much like that awful leprechaun cosplay thing Keen Kate wore. I flat out told the sales associate to burn the entire rack of them when no one was looking.

        I can’t believe they prefer crimes of fashion to this amazing woman and her bold, beautiful style. WTF

      • Kk2 says:

        The Lizzie tour! Love it. I could definitely see that being the soundtrack in her head/the car on the way there. I don’t play tag bitch, I been it…

      • Suz says:

        @Anony83 It’s not just the clothes that show a deep contrast. Meghan is glowing and healthy looking. Poor Kate continues to look more skeletal and exhausted. This is what happens to you when you give in to this dysfunctional, uncaring family. I truly worry for Kate.

      • Kristina says:

        Anyone have thoughts about her cosplaying the British flag w blue, white, red? Kate got thoroughly slammed for that.

      • Nic919 says:

        Several countries have red white and blue as part of their flag whereas wearing green in Ireland is pretty obvious. And Kate’s outfits were just bad. Has Kate worn nice green outfits it wouldn’t not have looked as bad. And she had a substance free tour saying nothing whereas Meghan gave a speech at at least two of the stops. Meghan came off like a professional And informed adult. That still can’t be said about Kate or even William.

    • PrincessK says:

      Just amazing……I am blown away,

    • Sayrah says:

      She looks amazing! So happy and with an air of I don’t give a f—- what anyone thinks. Love it and both of them!

    • Wasabi says:

      Daaaaaamn, girl’s on fleek!
      ✨❤️✨

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      Replying to the comment about Meghan’s posture: YES. Meghan carries these looks with such confidence in her posture and Kate will never have that. She’s always slouched and it ruins her looks.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      On FIIIIRE, yes! She has NEVER looked better as a Royal than on this trip, because she has stopped trying to fit in! No more dowdy misfitting dresses and goofy hats, she is just Meghan now and she SHINES!

    • Vava says:

      WOW. The IT couple, indeed!!!

    • She’s stunning!

  2. Lara says:

    Damn she looks ridiculously amazing.

    • lucy2 says:

      She does. She looks happy and confident and without a hint of regret.
      And in that gown, she looks downright ROYAL.

  3. Jezebel's Lacefront says:

    Keep rocking that color, Duchess! You look free and happy, along with your husband.

    • Carmen says:

      I am so loving this look. She’s no longer playing it safe so as not to outshine her frumpy in-laws. Since she and Harry came back for this visit she’s gone full-on Diana, glamming it up and looking fabulous. Petty Betty must be having spasms and heaves.

      • BabsORIG says:

        Ahhhm, , no, Petty Betty is way too old for that. You know who’s going nuts with incandescent rage? Willileaks aka, “the Cain to Harry’s Abel”. Oh and of course Katie Keen is crying us all a river. I’m sure William is raging with jealousy at the fact that hard as he tries, he can’t seem to escape his little brother’s shadow, 😝😝 Speaking of which, was it Wootten that was on and on about Harry always living in William shadow? 😂😂😂😂 these RRR make me gnash my teeth in disgust.
        Now to my duchess Meghan of house Sussex, hmmm, hmm, yass, yass, ma’am make’em hateful b!tches feel the pain.. Slaaayyyy.

    • Wasabi says:

      And her smile! It actually reminds me of Angelina Jolie in a way: From photographs you can tell that Angelina is beautiful. But than seeing her face in movement, seeing her smile shows how insanely, impossibly radiant she is. Like, BOOM – the entire room lights up instantly! Same with Meghan’s smile.

    • Tessa says:

      Now The DM is saying how unhappy Camilla is that Meghan’s pictures were up when Camilla was giving a talk on helping abused women)! So if true I say isn’t that just too bad.

  4. Christine Chang says:

    I just had to comment, this absolutely killed me, “YOU COULDA HAD A BAD BITCH” farewell 🤣🤣🤣!

    Cape! Looks amazing on her.

  5. isabel says:

    I LOVE the matching reds! I wasn’t sure about the red shoe but I can’t think of a better option, given the context. Nude and black are both kind of blah options.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      I’m normally not into matchy-matchy but this so works for me, head to toe.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      With red it’s best to go all in. Nude and black never really work that well with it especially with evening wear.

  6. Florence says:

    Every inch a true queen: Kate will NEVER.

  7. BlueSky says:

    That feeling when you leave “The Sunken Place”

    • Some chick says:

      YESSS!

      Love these photos. Meghan and Harry both look happy and radiant. Wonder what she will wear at Remembrance Day.

  8. S808 says:

    Her BEST look hands down! She proved you can look conservative in a modern and chic way. A complete hit from head to toe. Her and Safiyaa are a match made in fashion heaven. Someone said she’s dressing like she doesn’t have to run her wardrobe by a committee anymore and I’m starting to believe it. Well done Duchess!

    • Osty says:

      This proves they really tried to force her to dim her shine. Freedom looks good on her

    • Tessa says:

      She and Harry look amazing. I am glad they are out and about.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Yes. It’s so obvious they required her not to shine. Or at least she was not to outshine the higher ups. So even when she did the stint with petty Betty she wore this boring tan color while Betty alone must wear the bright colors. It reminds me of the Chrysanthemum Throne where the princesses dress really simply and dull.

    • Yes S808 —- conservative in a modern way. You don’t have to wear yards and yards of fabric that has been pleated, ruffled, or gathered to the ninth degree and have masses of buttons or flaps. You don’t have to dress like your going to a 1950s church service in the Deep South. It must be wonderful for Meghan to live her best self instead of kowtowing to all the little grey ‘palace’ men. Meghan looks fantastic and Harry —- yum yum.

    • MJM says:

      Remember how she got piled on for the Ralph and Russo gown? 3 years later Meghan knows she’ll get dragged for spending, being too glam or whatever. She has no f’s left to give is my guess.

  9. Alexandria says:

    I was stunned! This is proof she has been limiting her glam to not upstage the Keens and the Queen. Now she doesn’t have to care! Oh my Duchess. And her makeup here is better. Better tailoring and of course her perfect posture is great. I have bad posture so I really admire that. Perfection.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      agree – watching the video, her great posture makes her look more elegant and royal. ;)

    • Carmen says:

      She doesn’t need to dress to fit in. She has her own style and she is killing it. She makes all those other royals look like bag ladies.

    • My3cents says:

      Yes, her makeup is so much better!
      I guess before she did a lot of neutrals and nudes not to draw attention, but now the lips, the eyes, she just looks amazing.

  10. Bellah says:

    Gorgeous!!! I don’t typically care for match matchy accessorizing….but this head to toe red scheme is flawlessly executed. I literally gasped when I first saw this photo. She looks breathtakingly beautiful.

  11. Harla says:

    Thank you for not making us wait until tomorrow Kaiser!! I so look forward to your take on these events and of course the fashion.

    Yeah, I completely agree, Meghan tried very hard to fit in, to dim her incredible light so that others (W&K, C&C) wouldn’t feel threatened but I’m so glad that she choose to let her light shine! She is such an inspiration to all of us who feel the need to dim our lights so other feel comfortable!! Personally, she’s inspired me so much that I’m never dimming my light again, for anyone!

    • Call_me_al says:

      Good for you, Harla! I’m so inspired by her and Harry as well. A woman owning her power amidst incredible hate is a wondrous thing to see.

  12. Me Again says:

    The BRF truly messed up and lost what could have been a shining jewel in their crown. That couple has it all. I’m so happy for H&M for getting the heck out.

    • Osty says:

      This, and I can’t wait to see their regret. They are not very bright there cos if they were they could have still worked against her and it would have taken her yrs to realise it . But these idiots did too much too fast they couldn’t hide their hate and insecurities. They also thought Meghan is like kate whose entire life was to be a royal and a queen so would have taken their bs. Meghan said not me and adios

    • Harla says:

      True but they get to keep Piers Morgan, Dan Wooten, Dickie Arbiter and the rest of their ilk and that’s what the royals wanted so they should be pretty happy about that😏

      • A says:

        Ever notice how Piers Morgan, Dan Wooten and Dickie Arbiter, and all of their dumb disgusting colleagues are STILL unhappy with Meghan and Harry? They yelled at them for the time they were they for being there, and now they’re yelling at them for being gone cuz they’re gone.

        The thing people need to understand about abusive sh-theads like these is that they get their joy from punching down on other people. It doesn’t matter what you do. You cannot make them happy, because their purpose isn’t to be happy at all. Their purpose is to be cruel. They don’t want Meghan to disappear, they need her to remain in the public eye juuuust enough that they have someone to abuse. They need a target for their cruelty. They need someone to aim their guns at and constantly fire.

    • PrincessK says:

      Yes, Britain has lost this incredible couple. I was so looking forward to seeing them tour the Caribbean and the US.

    • LaraK says:

      That’s the thing though – this was inevitable. The big problem with monarchies is that there is no merit involved. Bill the Rose Gardner is the heir. That’s it. Doesn’t matter that he’s lazy, has whatever the opposite is charisma is, and his wife is kind of a snooze. He popped out first. So the BRF was NEVER going to let M&H outshine the heirs. The only option was to corral them.

      So the reality is, they could have never had a bad bitch. The system wouldn’t allow it.

      • Amy Too says:

        “Doesn’t matter that he…has whatever the opposite of charisma is…” Do you mean Kate? “Whatever the opposite of charisma” is called a Kate.

    • lucy2 says:

      Can you imagine if they had embraced her? If they had shut down the awful, racist nonsense, welcomed in her into the family, and support her and Harry’s interests? They could have done amazing things there.
      Instead they will do amazing things where they choose, and the rest of the BRF can sit there and pout.

  13. Beach Dreams says:

    Spectacular from head to toe!

  14. Seraphina says:

    I think she matched him to show message that the two are united no matter what. I saw other pics as well and they both look awesome. Thank you for covering.

    Her tour had been named correctly, that could have had a bad ass female representing the BRF so that the world could see how forward they are but NOPE. Down with the elitists!!!

  15. Vicsy says:

    Omg styling is breath taking
    What s beautiful couple :)

  16. Dizzy says:

    She looks amazing. So glad she could break away from the BRF. I agree with John Oliver. She was making a big mistake by marrying into it but at least now she got away

    • Bettyrose says:

      Mistake isn’t the right word. She and Harry seem so right for each other, and living together as a couple wasn’t an option for them. If they’ve found their happily ever after, two unpleasant years will eventually be something they can laugh about together.

  17. Indiesr says:

    As I watch the magnificent display of Megan strutting in her beautiful fitted cape dress the tune of “l’m every woman” plays in my head. 😊

  18. Guest2.0 says:

    Absolutely amazing in head to toe red. I love it. She looks spectacular. I have to agree that it seems she was dimming her light/style to fit in to her Royal role. Now, girlfriend is like, I’m free y’all and this is the real Meghan. Loving it.

    BTW… this is an interesting read by an Irish journalist…goes to show how toxic the RRs are
    https://www.irishmirror.ie/news/news-opinion/ciara-phelan-column-royal-visit-21648752.amp?__twitter_impression=true

    • Brit says:

      I read that article and was absolutely disgusted. The way they talked about Kate and especially Meghan was horrible. Meghan and Harry were so smart to leave because that was skin crawling. It almost made me feel for Kate because she is surrounded and in bed with those vultures. No wonder she’s so robotic and plain. That press is going to try to get her to be more like their version of Meghan and it’s going to fail. Thats why the press is so upset because the person they clearly hate is someone who can’t be replaced.

    • GuestWho says:

      The way they talked about and compared Kate & Meghan was incredibly creepy. What I took away from the article (with a shudder) is that they don’t think Kate is sexy, they don’t want to sleep with her, so they (barely) manage to treat her with respect; they think Meghan is sexy, (begrudgingly?) want to sleep with her, but since they can’t they tear her down and treat her like she’s trash and beneath them. Madonna/Whore.

      I understand why she didn’t name them, but you can’t help but wonder which of those RR grotty middle-aged men were there.

      • Harla says:

        Piers Morgan is definitely one!

      • Brit says:

        I guarantee it was Richard Palmer, Arthur Edwards or Robert Jobson. Those three especially have an axe to grind with Meghan. Very nasty and Arthur has said horrible things about her before in print and tv. They’ve been wanting to have access to her for years.

      • A says:

        They think she’s sexy, and they want to sleep with her, but they hate that too and they’ll tear her down and disrespect her for that as well. It doesn’t matter what you do to please the patriarchal male gaze, either way, you’re not satisfying them. It’s almost like the problem for men is their own disgusting insecurity, coupled with what seems like an intense sense of shame and self-hatred that they can’t get over, so they externalize it and project it onto women as if it’s their fault that their psyches make them so f-cking unhappy.

      • Fabuleuse15 says:

        Apparently, Kate’s naked butt, super skinny jeans and wind blown skirts aren’t having the desired effect of being their wet dreams. How sad for Kate. I’m glad to know that personality is indeed sexier than a naked body.

    • Anony83 says:

      This part of that article made me literally gasp aloud.

      “Most men on the royal trail spoke of how sexy she was in comparison to Kate, whom they described instead as beautiful and sweet. You couldn’t be sexy and be in the royal family, so they said. … And for Meghan, the way she dressed, her movements and her flirtatious walk were her downfall according to the so-called experts.”

      FLIRTATIONS *WALK*??? Plus, I appreciate that the author points out it was the *men* on the royal trail who dubbed Meghan as sexy and Kate as beautiful and sweet. But lets be honest, Meghan was seen as sexy because she is biracial and the media (and the Royal Family probably) decided she was too “exotic” to fit into the Windsor fold. And no matter how much she dimmed her light and tried to conform, she would never have been treated as though she belonged.

      And seeing Kate compared in the same breathe as “beautiful and sweet” is just straight up misogynoir; Kate’s “pureness” and “grace” makes her a real royal (and of course, the Future Queen). The Great Embiggening of Kate was never really about Kate herself, it is about the royal media/family wanting so desperately to make it clear that Meghan had no place in The Firm because she was just too special and different. Meghan was a taller poppy then Kate and it doomed her place in the Firm from the very start.

      Thank god she is getting out.

      • Brit says:

        Yep. They want Kate to have Meghan’s Stardust and charisma but be stoic, silent and boring at the same time. The media literally screwed themselves over in more ways than one and it’s hysterical. Good luck Kate, because you’re going to get ripped to shreds if you don’t be what the royals and media want you to be.

      • A says:

        Insinuating that her sexiness is part of her downfall is just some next Madonna-Whore complex victim blaming bullshit. My god.

      • Deering24 says:

        Yeah, we WOC are naturally slutty and impure, luring innocent middle-aged white guys to their doom just by taking a step. 🤮🤮

      • Ennie says:

        Wow. First time I hear about the taller poppy syndrome. Never heard if it before, but if course we have seen it happening before. Bunch of crabs never letting one leave the bucket. The old royal reporters and the middle aged reporter fangirls need to go sit in a corner and shrivel there.

      • starryfish29 says:

        I said it years ago, but there’s an entire thesis that could be written about how Meghan’s been treated and mythology of whiteness as the feminine ideal. If I was still doing by comm degree it’s totally something I would have been interesting in doing a paper on.

      • Susieq says:

        I’m sorry I don’t think of Kate being sweet when we’ve repeatedly seen all her bits. Maybe that’s another issue. That want to sleep with Meghan and all they can do is fantasize about her bits because unlike Kate Meghan hasn’t constantly flashed us or sunbathers topless. Any fantasy of Kate is long gone with her repeated upskirts.

      • It’s also the way rapists think of their victims. The mindset of: Not my fault because she’s flirty or walked sexy, or dressed sexy, or breathed sexy — she was asking for it — so not rape. I’ve thought for quite some time that what the Rabid media pack (the men and even the women) are doing to Meghan is a form of mental and verbal rape. Rape can be a mental act as well as a physical act. This article just so brought that home for me once again.

        It’s also the mindset of the Salem Witch Trials: throw her in the water — if she floats, she’s a witch and thus guilty, so we hang her; if she drowns, she’s innocent. Meghan is in a no-win situation with this group. The only way to win is to refuse to play.

      • rmcgrudiva says:

        JA Lowcountry Lady – WHEW. That was a WORD.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        @JA Lowcountry Lady – and, as a former journalist that pays attention to news about the media, it is no coincidence that the star reporters of the 70s-90′s are now being called out for the sexual harassers (and sometimes rapists) they are. There is a male-power mindset with the media that comes down from the top (which is owned by old white guys) and is show in the arrogance of their star reporters.

        After reading that article, I actually have a lot more sympathy for Kate. She tried to play their game and now she’s caught in a trap she can’t escape. M&H saw what was happening and decided to jump off the train heading over the cliff.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      @Guest2.0 That article broke my heart a little. The lengths people will go to demonise another demonstrates that humanity fundamentally never changes.

    • Thanks for the link, Guest2.0. I love that ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. I like that the reporter was honest about changing her mind about Meghan after listening to the other reporters comments. Meghan never had a chance with most of them.

  19. MasterandMargarita says:

    WHAAAAAAAAAT. I spit out my coffee, literally. I can’t with her star power. Was not her biggest fan in the beginning of their relationship (was neutral) but damn girl. True super star. I am a hardcore Jolie fan, but since she’s out of commission, I will stan Megan all day long with this new glow/style.

    • Alexandria says:

      I’m a hardcore Jolie fan too! Too bad we won’t see much of Harry and Meghan soon unless they’re doing their events PR. But that’s ok because their mental health is more important. I will scream if Meghan, Jolie and Michelle Obama join forces. The 3 ladies get attacked for the weirdest things even though they’re trying to do some good in the world.

    • Indiesr says:

      Ditto on this. At first, I was like “meh”, but then I started paying attention, especially when she started getting so much hate, and realized most of it was coming from jealousy and racism. I’m so happy for these two rising above the storm. Btw, also a Jolie fan. 😊

    • Kinsley says:

      I’m also a Angelina Jolie fan and now… I also like Meghan so much!! I’m 17 years old and to me; Angelina and Meghan are role models!! They are so strong and I love everything they do!! They are incredible woman!! 😍💕

      • Carmen says:

        You’ve chosen excellent role models. Both of them are strong, smart, resourceful women. We need more like them.

      • Some chick says:

        That’s awesome. Two women who are definitely worth looking up to! I like Amal Clooney too – the connection is they all use their power for humanitarian and social justice causes. <3

    • PrincessK says:

      The good thing about not seeing Meghan for a long time is that when we do it is so so much worth the wait.

  20. Scollins says:

    Deeelishious! I’ve never loved a caped gown so much. Styling again perfection. Can’t wait for more H&M!

    • PrincessK says:

      Kate will be wondering what to wear on Monday, poor things

      • Wasabi says:

        Nah, she’ll dust off a buttoned dress coat that was picked out and approved months in advance. There will be nothing exiting or surprising about it. Just her regular “meh, it’s fine, whatever” choice.

  21. Rose says:

    I hope she wears pant suits for the common wealth.

  22. AGreatDane says:

    She looks amazing! Reminds of the Givenchy she wore in Morocco (or the blue Saafiya from the Oceania tour). The extensions are glamourously long as well.

  23. BeGoneOrangeCheeto says:

    The Cambridges are going to be green with envy. She looks stunning and so does Harry! Prince Hot Ginger for a win.

    • Brit says:

      Kate already was in a blue colored outfit similar to Meghan’s Victoria Beckham dress, getting “Papped” today. You can’t tell me the Cambridge’s aren’t jealous.

      • Anon says:

        Really? Not even a 48h interval to go full copycat? Petty does as petty is…

      • bamaborn says:

        Just confims my longstanding diagnosis. The girl is *passive/aggressive.* smh

      • Ina says:

        And I bet Kate looked frumpy. W&K also released PDA pictures from Ireland. Screams of desperation!

      • morrigan01 says:

        I saw those pap pics of Kate and, if I had to guess, just going by the look on her face in them, I don’t think that whole pap walk in the same shade of blue Meghan were just the night before was Kate’s idea, but just something she was going along with.

        Just guessing, I’d bet it was Ma Middleton’s idea. Because doing this just 24 hours later just smacks of desperation and jealousy. And while I do think Kate has that jealousy and passive/aggressive streak in her, I think even she might have enough awareness to have wanted to wait at least a *bit* of time before putting on the same colors and getting papped.

        Plus, one of the whole appeals of that picture with Meghan and Harry was the rain and how it looked like diamonds/stardust because of how the picture came out. Kate out shopping – by herself during a clear day – wearing the same color blue doesn’t really *compete,* you know?

      • Nic919 says:

        I thought we were told that paps never take pics of royals in the UK. Were we lied to?

        This pap stroll was very obviously a Carole idea because those were not blurry pics and just conveniently being near a bookstore on a Friday afternoon is no coincidence. Especially since Kate has never been seen at one before. Also amazon exists.

        This is a move straight from Kris Jenner’s playbook. Amazing how it’s the white Duchess who actually does the IG influencer thing that Meghan has been accused of.

  24. nicegirl says:

    Kate wears bright red Zara Monday morning for the tot drop at school will be our next lol. Thank you Kaiser for this post. We Stan our Duchess Meg

  25. Osty says:

    They were born with IT and they brought it. The king and queen we deserve . This week is a prove that they really tried to dim her shine to make the dull ones look good. Now she can be free to be her glamorous self and I love it .

  26. Guest2.0 says:

    And they got a standing ovation when they entered to take their seats. The military definitely have their backs. Delicious to see.

    —-And still I rise

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      According to The Guardian this is Harry’s uniform for his final engagement “as Captain General of the Royal Marines, the highest rank of his honorary military titles, which he must now relinquish under terms agreed with the Queen.” Which all rather sucks so I’m glad they went out in style.

    • Big difference to Cambridge’s reception at BAFTA.

      • Amy Too says:

        Remember on those threads where people were trying to say that it’s a rule that you can’t clap for royals? It’s just some kind of protocol that all the american celebrities miraculously knew about and were following so as not to offend will and Kate by clapping for them.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ Amy Too

        There was enthusiastic clapping in 2018 and 2017. It only stopped in 2019. And got colder still for 2020. 😐

  27. MerryGirl says:

    Simply put: perfection! And I LOVE how she ignored the ‘protocol’ and came back to great the Usher/worker….so, so genuine, a real people person.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Such BS that would ever be protocol. I guess there’s plenty of rich jagoffs who think they don’t need to acknowledge the paid staff, but that usher isn’t on the RF payroll. She’s a taxpaying subject who the RF exists to serve (or be icons to or something something…anyway she is entitled to be acknowledged but good on Meghan for just being a decent person).

  28. sunny says:

    She looks AMAZING here! I didn’t love the red shoes but the dress and clutch are everything. She is wearing a cape and my god her face is glowing!! No more dimming her light for these petty, dim-witted racists.

    I also love how much of a DGAF attitude they are rocking as they do these last events. They are highlighting the causes that matter to them and doing it in style. I get the feeling that they are eager to start the next part of their lives together away from the bs.

  29. Charfromdarock says:

    She is always beautiful but she is radiating happiness this week.

    The BRF f*ed up bigtime. And I doubt they even realize it.

    • ProfPlum says:

      Per Pretty Woman: Big Mistake. HUGE.

    • Mich says:

      I’m not so sure she is ‘happy’ right now. Everything about this visit must be causing serious anxiety behind the scenes. But she is standing tall in the face of it and looking fucking fabulous. She defines #goals.

      And Harry is at her side letting the world know he loves the choice he made.

      Seriously. Goals.

      • Carmen says:

        Anxiety for whom, though? The royals are probably sh*tting brickbats. They’ve been completely upstaged by the interloper they thought they had forced into exile. And if Meghan is gloating behind the scenes, I wouldn’t blame her a bit.

      • A says:

        @Carmen, $10 says William is looking into ways to ban both Harry and Meghan from the island as a whole. He’s petty enough to try it.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I see no anxiety. They are fulfilling the last few things they have to for the Firm and are thrilled to be moving on to a free life.

      • Jaded says:

        She’s as happy as a lark – it’s her ‘Farewell You F*ckers’ tour and she’s spilling over with glee.

  30. HK9 says:

    Flawless.

  31. redheadwriter says:

    This is how you do it. Simply stunning.

  32. Neners says:

    Stunning, stunning, STUNNING. She has snapped on these lessers and I have never been more here for anything in my life.

  33. A Guest says:

    I legit saw that dress on Pinterest a few weeks back and thought it would be perfect for Meghan since she wore the bright blue one in Fiji. Get it girl!

    She looks great in bright colors and should have been wearing them all along.

  34. Bettyrose says:

    I really liked that black 1950s prom dress, but Meghan wasn’t owning that look or many others back then. She has the potential to look fab in anything, so my guess it was more that her natural glow was stifled on those occasions. What we’re seeing here is her own self expression. The dress is great but it’s the attitude that’s working it.

    • ProfPlum says:

      So much this, @Bettyrose. Even her daywear was better than it has ever been. The outfit she wore to the school–Chanel-esque jacket with black cigarette pants, two-toned Mary Janes, and a very cool bag–was a zillion times better than the frumpy shirt dresses she wore on the South Africa tour. She was really going above and beyond to tone it down to fit in with a bunch of in-bred, struggly elitists. Now she is in in full DGAF mode. And I am here for it.

      • Tanya says:

        Maybe. I associate frumpy shirt dresses with the early breastfeeding phase of my life.

  35. YAS says:

    WOWOWOWOWOW. She’s a stunner.

  36. Veronicat says:

    So glam and great!! Now this is how you make a fashion statement. I’m seeing a very well done USA/freedom theme happening – red white and blue. Living well is the best revenge…

    • Lady D says:

      I expect to see her in white tomorrow too, but I think she’ll wear black or navy on Monday for the CW services. It’s not a glam event, but I bet she will still look fantastic.
      (The UK flag is also white, red and blue)

  37. Mustang Sally says:

    THIS is how I have wanted to see Kate dress (never going to happen). Even Diana, after her divorce, became sleeker and less fussy. Meghan is owning her look, no longer worrying that she is outshining Waity Katy. Waiting for the event on Monday to see if Kate shows up in ruffles, buttons, sausage curls, heavy dark blue eyeliner or a wavy hemline. Meghan will own the moment unless Kate ditches whoever has been dressing her of late.

    • A says:

      Kate, too, had a reasonably great sense of fashion before she married William. I have a Pinterest board of collected looks from the years in the run up to her wedding, and I did really like a lot of what she wore. Sleek lines, sloane rangery things, to be fair, but there was still a gorgeous sort of effortlessness to her fashion that doesn’t exist anymore.

      • I agree And, Kate used to dress much more attractively — I really liked her look then; but the last few years she has gone total nursery school mumsey.

      • Well Kate wore red last year and Meghan wore white so I’m hoping for a bit of color. 😎. Sorry this ended up here. I was responding to MeghanNotMarkle and notasugarhere below.

      • A says:

        @JA, she had a glow to her that was also really nice to see. Like, I’ve heard rumours that Kate is a lot of fun to be around, and you can see that in the few snapshots we have of her hanging around friends or other people that she has a personality underneath everything we see as a public figure.

        It’s a crying shame how the monarchy forces people to sublimate themselves in this way. I wonder how much of it is the monarchy, and how much of it is just Queen Elizabeth still being better after 70 odds years that she couldn’t be a country housewife like she originally wanted so everyone around her has to be miserable too.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      I am praying that Meghan sticks to her guns tomorrow and doesn’t fall back into the trap of dressing to not outshine Keen Kate. No coatdresses. No frilly collars, buttons, or frumpy waistlines. Just sleek Duchessing the way only our Meghan can do it.

    • L4frimaire says:

      @MustangSally, Why do you want Kate to dress like Meghan? She should dress in what works for her. She’s at least 4” taller than Meghan and should wear her own style. I don’t get these comments wishing to see Kate play dress up in other women’s clothes, as if that will transform her personality and work ethic. It’s childish.

  38. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Imagine if none of the royal family had any titles. Who would still shine, and who would be unremarkable nobodies? That’s why the royals have to keep playing the game of “bow to me” and “look at my crown,” because without that the world would see how useless they are.

  39. Sass says:

    I saw this and yesterday’s and that’s how I knew she was trying to fit in this entire time and hated it. She was stifled, so much so that she couldn’t even express herself through fashion. THIS is the Meghan we’ve been wishing for, sartorially.

  40. Bella says:

    Meghan looked glorious – stately and elegant and confident.
    Have to disagree about the “frumpy” black dress. Not her style but it still looked wonderful. Lovely texture.

    Mark my words, Baby Sussex no 2 will be arriving before Thanksgiving.

    • ProfPlum says:

      MUSIC FESTIVAL BABY.

    • Bettyrose says:

      I’ve been wondering about baby 2. The timing doesn’t seem ideal with all the transitions but if baby 2 is desired then they’ll probably get to work on that soon. Not gonna pretend I don’t hope it’s a girl.

    • BabsORIG says:

      That’s a fact. I believe he’s doing her about x5 a day.

  41. Ann says:

    Stunning. Perfection. She takes my breath away! Red! A Cape! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! And a cute dashing prince husband who loves her. I love this so much.

  42. Blase2 says:

    I agree that the Duchess looks fabulous, and I’d also liked to point out that she has taken a page from another duchess’s playbook, dressing in the host country’s colors. DoS has worn white, blue, and now red. But DoS did it with aplomb and no one gagged on it.

  43. Becks1 says:

    She looked amazing – yes, the dress is fabulous and I love it – but damn she just has confidence and style and IT. The royals tried to take all that away from her and she said “nah. I’ve still got it.”

    • Yes Becks1, the outfit can be ‘all that’ but what takes it over the top with Meghan’s clothes for this trip is that she is wearing them, they are not wearing her. To look that F-g fantastic, you’ve got to feel it, work it, and own it and she does. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  44. Lizzie says:

    If the Queen has any sense whatsoever she will beg this couple to make these 5 days a yearly engagement.
    Seriously the Queen has to be realizing what bad advise she was given to strip them of almost everything but their titles. They are superstars all on their own.

  45. Tracenee says:

    Can’t wait to see if Kathy is gonna cosplay this look. I’m mean the sky blue she wore shopping today😂 Meghan looked STUNNING in red and has really declared herself these last two days. I’m here for it! Didn’t they sing “this little light of mine” at their wedding? Their light is about at little as the sun!

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Lol, right?! It was so obvious. And the “out shopping” thing was basically a “don’t forget about me!!” pap stroll. So pathetic.

      • Feeshalori says:

        And there’s a photo of her opening her own car door. Gasp, any protests of breaking protocol? Going once, going twice…..nah, didn’t think so. Crickets.

      • carmen says:

        Yes, I was wondering why her security team didn’t put a stop to it. Isn’t that the usual m.o.? I’ve read that there have been instances where Kate has been out in public – a park, a store, etc. and the security detail will approach anyone who appears to be taking photos.

      • windyriver says:

        Was starting to feel a bit sorry for Kate. However mercenary and misguided her 10 year pursuit of William was, I guess it seemed worth it in her 20’s. Now 10 years later; this can’t be the life she pictured for herself with him. Age has intensified his worst characteristics (he’s certainly got the face he deserves), and in public appearances they certainly show little warmth or connection as a couple.

        Then she pulls a stunt like this, and any sympathy goes out the window. Not sure how to describe her expression in these many pictures. Not quite smug; maybe, that she feels she’s somehow one-upping Meghan. Honey, you can only wish…

        Nothing shy or innocent about it. She and Will deserve each other.

    • Circe says:

      Hide it under a bucket? NO! I’m gonna let it shine….

  46. Eugh says:

    I think before she wore so much navy at these type of events to stand down and well seems no more. Don’t dim your light for anyone!

  47. Christina says:

    Wow!

  48. Dunnoboutthat says:

    Wow! She & Harry look stunning! She has really upped her fashion game and looks amazing in that dress!

  49. JanetDR says:

    Those smiles 💖💖💖

  50. Harper says:

    Our Queen Meghan stuns again … and I love the red shoes.

    Cannot believe that Kate set up a pap shot of herself today out shopping dressed in whatever turquoise-like clothes she could get from her closet. Out to prove that she has also worn that color and thus Meghan copied from her. Too bad it wasn’t raining cuz Kate would have gladly posed under an umbrella as well.

    • one of the Marys says:

      Help me find the pap shot of Kate FYI I’m not on twitter and google is not doing it

      • Indiesr says:

        You can find it over at the daily mail. If you click on this event pic of Harry and Megan it’s on the bottom of their report

    • L4frimaire says:

      I found that a bit weird. She wanted to be seen. Would have seen less staged if she was out with her sister or doing something more discreet. Being in a busy shopping street all by her lonesome. Hmmmmm.

      • A says:

        That too, buying books. As if we all think that Katie Keen and Willy, two individuals notoriously famous for not being “intellectuals”, are actually going to be sitting around reading books or some sh-t.

        Maybe she’s Christmas shopping for Camilla, but early?

    • AMM says:

      I’m truly surprised she did not have all 3 children lined up for pap shots too. Really try to overshadow her. But the blue on blue and sudden need to go personally buy an entire sack of childrens books seems intentional.

      On the other hand, she seemed tired. No manic smile. No chatty cathy eager to talk to everyone and be down to earth. So maybe it really was just an unplanned pap shot while she was taking her retail therpay out on books, since shes probably temporary cut off from wasting money on ugly clothes.

    • Nic919 says:

      I’m not surprised. I bet she was on the phone with her mum the moment that iconic photo came out. I do have to say that her pap stroll outfit was nicer than anything she wore in Ireland.

      • Lady D says:

        I would laugh so hard if the queen ordered this turquoise solidarity pap stroll from Kate. Might explain the look on her face. It was probably Carole, though. Also, the queen is in the same colour for church with Meghan this morning.

  51. Valiantly Varnished says:

    STUNTIN. Keep shining sis! Pure fire 🔥
    And Coulda Had a Bad Bitch Tour is the official name of these events.

  52. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Drop. The. Mic.

  53. Originaltessa says:

    I’m dead. She looks amaaazing. This is such a good look.

  54. Dropbear says:

    These two have knocked it out of the park on this farewell tour. This is what not ‘putting yourself on fire anymore to keep others warm’ looks like and refusal to be BRF and RRs punching bag. I lollled hard at the predictable, after the fact staged pap-shot of Katie Keen in identical coloured coat.
    Can’t wait to see H&M pull a team hat trick and outshine, literally and figuratively, the toxic BRF bunch on Monday.

  55. MsIam says:

    Beautiful! What more can I say. Show them the back of your head Meghan, held up high! I think she and Harry look so cute together. This is the second time they have coordinated their looks, he to her blue dress from the other night and now she to his red. I’m here for it, definitely.

  56. aang says:

    I honestly don’t see how the RF could have thought she was anything but an asset. She’s got Diana’s charisma, or at least she knows how to act like she does. And she must have gotten a new stylist because she has looked amazing the last couple of days. Harry is not going to be jealous of her star the way Charles was. These two are going to rocket to the top. She definitely hitched her wagon to the right horse as far as media attention goes and she makes him seem grown up, serious, and stable. The sum is definitely greater than the parts with this couple.

    • A says:

      The RF really is wrapped up in so much self-hatred combined with sheer entitlement. Their treatment of Meghan gives you a glimpse of the top 1%’s MO. They don’t exist to uplift themselves, let alone others. They uplift themselves by tearing down other people. That’s how the monarchy became a thing, and that’s the attitude they still channel today. They can’t break out of that thought process. Sad.

    • LaraK says:

      The RF is not a meritocracy. Bill and Kate are the heirs. They must shine. H & M. must know their place. That’s the Royal way of thinking.
      So if the new biracial upstart has more style and charisma in her little finger than the entire RF, she must be stifled, made to wear hideous clothes, and pushed back.
      It would NeVER occur to the royal family to adopt Meghan because then she would just show how out of touch and useless they all are. Which she will now do anyway.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        It is certainly the way the BRF operates. When a Chinese-British woman married Queen Margrethe’s second son she outshone everybody for a long time, and they let her! She provided a big popularity boost to the Danish RF.

        This pathological need to try to force popularity to follow rank is something that is particular to the British RF, and I think it is a deeply embedded dysfunction that is particular to them as both an institution and as a family – and I wouldn’t be surprised if it has something to do with the way that the Windsors have produced emotionally stunted people for generations.

        BTW, I loved caped dresses and Meghan looks spectacular. Like Queen Maxima and Crown Princess Mary, Meghan really rocks this type of dress.

      • Nice to have you back ArtHistorian. I’ve missed your comments 😎

  57. Calibration says:

    Now this is how you do theme dressing.

  58. Kimber says:

    WOW- absolutely stunning. I didn’t think she could top the turquoise dress, but this is just perfection! The RF has been so vanilla these past few months without them. THIS is true class and adult style. Meghan just schooled the rest of the RF on how it should be done.
    There’s a photo where Harry is looking out for her footing on a uneven area or small step. The awareness and concern for her was so evident. Can’t see Wills ever even noticing…
    H/M have such connection- you can just see it.

    • Lizzie says:

      Yes! He was watching out for her in that photo and he did the same yesterday making sure her to keep the rain off of her hair.

    • dj says:

      @ Kimber that picture of Harry looking down watching out for Megan’s step for the curb…just. gets. me. It is so romantic like in “Say Anything.” John Cusack kicking glass out of Ione Skye’s feet. That is intimacy. I squealed & gasped out loud when I saw these pictures. I cannot say more than anyone else on here how gorgeous & stunning Megan looks here and in red! My favorite color. Harry looks dashing too. #BadBitchFarewellTour

      • GuestWho says:

        Someone on twitter described his looking like that as his being ready to fight the ground if he had to to keep his wife safe. ;)

        It is a very sweet photo.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Harry often watches her footing and looks out for obstacles. Walking across grass, up stairs, up tiny curbs.

  59. bamaborn says:

    Just another thought. Perhaps she was trying to show solidarity with Duchess Meghan by wearing similar colors. If so, too little too late.

    • Calibration says:

      There has been so much shade from cosplay Kate so I doubt it. Including shade from Carol. Both Cambridge’s are neck deep in leaking to the media.

  60. Carrie says:

    The Dream Team. The aching stupidity of the the racist royal ‘family’ and the UK media. It is so damned sad. The way she has been treated. What message is this sending to young people of colour in the UK? The damage to their psyche. They were so proud to have representation within the ‘family’. The royal ‘family’ have shown all too clearly that they are racists and the world cannot unsee.

    • Harla says:

      I wonder how many people and leaders of Commonwealth countries are saying “nope, we’d rather not have this family as our Head of State “?

    • Neners says:

      Meghan visited a high school in London’s east end yesterday. Those kids idolize her. They were so giddy to meet her. One little girl stated that when she got out the car all she could see was her hair, and she thought it was Kate and then realized it was Meghan and was thrilled to get to meet her idol. This is the future of the UK and the Royal Family and British media crapped all over it. As a WOC (though not A Brit) yes, it hurts. Yes, it’s personal. No, we will never forget. The damage is done.

      • Islandgirl says:

        +1000
        I know that as a person of colour and the citizen of a Commonwealth country I will never forget….never.

      • Nic919 says:

        The video of the girl being excited that it was Meghan and not Kate is everything. And of course Meghan’s speech or at least what we saw of it shows just how good she is at this. Miles above everyone else.
        Charisma isn’t doled out by rank and the BRF has always stupidly forgotten that because of pettiness and jealousy.

  61. HeyThere! says:

    Drop. Dead. GORGEOUS.

  62. MF1 says:

    This is how I always hoped she’d dress as a duchess. Sleek, minimal, but also glamorous. Pretty much how she dressed before she married in to the RF.

    Like someone else said, she’s been dressing like a ’50s housewife to try and fit. But a woman like this was made to stand out!

    • A says:

      I imagine her dress choices were more likely an effort to subdue herself and her shine than anything else. She can’t do too much and make everyone else look bad. If she did a fantastic job, AND she dressed gorgeously well, then she’d just get more hate, more criticism, more insinuations that she’s only doing all this for attention.

      • Cynthia says:

        I agree. She knew the press only cared about her outfits so she tried to dim her light to try to force the press to focus on what she had to say and not what she was wearing (especially in SA). And if she had dressed like this, they would have accused her of being too Hollywood…oh wait…

  63. khaveman says:

    Is the red both for confidence and a “thank you” to Canada for support?

    • Jaded says:

      It’s actually the official colour of the Royal Marines officers’ jacket, of which Harry is a member, so it seems Meghan took the opportunity to match him perfectly. As a military veteran, he will be entitled at future events to wear his medals, but not this uniform so it’s kind of bittersweet that she joined him in solidarity by wearing red.

  64. Flying fish says:

    Beautiful.
    That’s all I got.

  65. khaveman says:

    She’s on point with her designers – English dress maker, Irish designer’s earrings.

  66. Mich says:

    Kate does throwback Diana cosplay through dress but Meghan is the real Diana 2.0. Walking tall and setting the world on fire no matter what is thrown at her. Harry chose well. Very well.

    I’m completely in love with the photos and videos from her school visit yesterday.

    These two are the ‘It’ couple of our age. I can’t wait to see what they have in store.

    Diana would have loved her. Of this I am sure.

  67. L4frimaire says:

    She and Harry looked like they were out of a fairy tale in their red. Just gorgeous. And they got a standing ovation! I love everything she’s worn on this trip so far. The outfits she wore to the National Theatre and to the high school in Dagenham were also really great. She looks like this is her true style, way better than a lot of the subdued looks she’s been sporting the past year. Also, this is the first time in a long time she’s looked like her true self, fit and happy. Both dresses kind of remind me of the Handmaid’s Tale, especially the bold solid colors and sculptural lines of both outfits. The blue dress is a “wife” dress, and the red dress is OfHenry; I’m sure she gets the humor of it, especially since she’s escaped an oppressive regime for freedom in Canada.

  68. LORENA says:

    The only thing that would have made it better is gold accessories, maybe an open toe gold sandal since fuck protocol 😏

    Either way it still works and red looks amazing on her! She is so beautiful !

  69. Rianic says:

    I’m headed over to She Inside to look for a red cape dress for myself!!!!

  70. Reece says:

    Breathtaking! Speechless, just speechless!

  71. Taryn says:

    Seeing her pull out look after look these past couple of days mixed with how in love and happy these two look makes you realize they were 100% trying to dull this woman’s shine. She is absolutely gorgeous, glowing, and confident in these photos and events she’s been doing, and people actually give Harry grief for choosing his wife? I mean look at them together how can you blame him?! The guy literally hit the jackpot and he knows it. THIS is Meghan Markle, THIS is what the BRF could have had, I think they’ll continue to do great things and I’m excited she showed out to remind everyone she is THAT bitch.

  72. A says:

    It’s amazing, truly, how so many things become so much easier when your mind is free from negativity and pettiness that is wrought by other people.

    Like, consider the criticism Meghan continuously received over the last couple years about her wardrobe. Not enough colour. The fit is off. It looks blergh. It doesn’t look “right.” It’s too expensive. Ad infinitem.

    And look at what she’s worn now. Between this dress and her turquoise from yesterday, this is more colour than we’ve seen from her in so long. And don’t get me wrong, I LOVE her neutral ensembles. I actually do. Some of them are so good, especially the olive coloured dresses she’s worn that I think are gorgeous.

    I imagine that freeing herself from all the constant bad vibes from the RF meant she can pay more attention to detail. Before, I’ll bet it felt like, “Why does any of this matter when all I’ll get is criticized anyway.” And now it’s like, she doesn’t have to give a fck. And in that process, she’s looking the best she’s ever looked.

  73. Pineapple says:

    So THIS is what they mean by, “When they go low, we go high.” The epitome of class and grace. The epitome. Royal forever and always in my books. Royal.

  74. D&C says:

    Diana would be proud how charismatic Harry turned out to be, and handsome too!

    • Ennie says:

      Well, she said that Harry was the one who would get all the girls, but I think he came out better, he got THE girl.

    • February Pisces says:

      Harry is basically Diana, William is Charles but worse.

    • Chrissy says:

      I think Diana would be so proud of the man Harry has become, with his own accomplishments and heart, but even more so, that he adores and supports his wife against the hateful and racist BRF and the British media.

  75. DP says:

    Yeeeeeessssss!!!
    “Meghan’s entire wardrobe for her You Coulda Had A Bad Bitch farewell tour is the “real Meghan.” “

  76. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Has anyone seen the Instagram of Meghan’s visit to the Robert Clack school in honor of International Women’s Day? One photo shows a large group of youths actually *engaged* with her! What a refreshing thing to see.

  77. Molly says:

    Kaiser, I agree with you. This is why Harry loves Meghan so much. She is a beautiful woman yet she down played her beauty to alllow another to shine; All she got in return was a knife to the back. If the Brits think that Meghan just discovered GLAM and FASHION than they are indeed STUPID. Meghan do you….you have God’s favor

  78. paddingtonjr says:

    Dear Kate, this is how you do tone-on-tone monochromatic dressing! I’m not usually a fan of monochromatic outfits, but Meghan looks beautiful. I love the coordinating outfits H&M have worn over the last two days. They are such a good-looking couple and have looked healthier and more relaxed as their exit nears.

  79. Sheila D says:

    :) just sooo good!

  80. PrincessK says:

    The stupid Daily Fail online has a headline, Why are they Leaving? Meaning that the rapturous receptions they have been getting these past few days is proof that everything is good and wonderful. On Twitter an idiot Daily Unimpressed reporter said that going forward the Sussexes will need coverage from good quality media and journalists ( like himself??) to get good coverage of their future activities. He is completely deluded.

    • Jaded says:

      Ya…the Fail also tried to portray Harry as “looking anxious and upset” and “fiddling with his fingers” and all sorts of silly nonsense. Those two shine like a beacon of hope and I just know that Willileaks and Kween Katie are livid about it. That they haven’t made any time to see the Sussexes speaks volumes. Can’t wait to see photos from tomorrow, the body language experts are going to have a field day.

    • L4frimaire says:

      The thing is, if the Sussexes stayed and brought their A-game like this, the tabloids and courtiers would just be more vicious than they are now. They are so obsessed with protocol and hierarchy, to the point that they’d prefer that they do nothing, as long as those of higher rank do the bare minimum. Then they’d be attacked for that as well. Also, that pathetic journalist who said that is now trying to turn that school visit into a “ Meghan kissed a 16 yo boy” thing, even though that didn’t actually happen, ignored the whole point of the visit, and opens up a teenager to being attacked online and in the press. Royal reporters, full of sh*t and lies as usual.

      • GuestOne says:

        Thing is though if palace staff etc are so obsessed with protocol& hierarchy why wasn’t it an issue when press focus was on Kate& William for years or when single Harry was polling as the first or second most popular royal for years ? Why has there been a constant stream of future Queen articles for Kate since Meghan came on the scene- seeming to surpass Charles& Camilla? Why haven’t there been fits over Fail& Express polls (even recently) for throne to skip Charles& go straight to William? This overshadowing thing seemed to be acute when Meghan came on the scene.

  81. Essotea says:

    Anyone notice the change of music in their current instagram post….people are really mad over black people singing lol

  82. Heather says:

    Man. The RF really flubbed this one. They are magnetic and could have been a real asset for the monarchy. They both look so happy too. Good for them!

  83. Bohemian Angel says:

    👏👏👏 Well done Meg!!!

  84. Trish-a says:

    Beautiful. Their smiles say it all. Love rules.

  85. KellyRyan says:

    Kaiser, you used the word, sparkle. I’ve been referring to Meghan the last few days as Sparkle Markel. Nothing but nothing will stop her glow. I watched a few episodes of The Crown last evening and noted Margaret having enough of being considered second best. Sad her path was self-destructive. H&M have a beautiful future together. They look terrific.

  86. Pip says:

    I think we (Britain) may well look back at this whole sad bloody mess as the beginning of the end of the monarchy. They’ve really screwed up their biggest chance to become vaguely “modern” or “relevant” & have lost their only young stars.

    Even though I’m a republican, I think it’s a great shame – what a balls-up to lose someone so charismatic, articulate &, let’s face it, bloody beautiful. Makes the ones who are left look even more plain, dull, archaic & stupid.

    Roll on the next referendum!

    • Harla says:

      I hope this “whole sad bloody mess” will be the beginning of the end for the British tabloid press as well. They bullied and harassed the Duchess until there was no option left to her but to leave and they’ve also destroyed the lives of regular folk. And lets not forget the suicide of Caroline Flack! When is enough going to be enough? When will the British people stand up and say “NO MORE”?

      • Mara says:

        The British Press literally hacked a murdered girl’s phone and whilst NOTW closed down, Murdoch’s papers are still going strong. The tabloid press has done a lot of really awful things but their readers always forgive them because these publications pander to their prejudices and make them feel important in a world that is slowly shifting from valuing merit over background.

      • Chrissy says:

        They BRF also lost their most popular member (after the Queen) in Harry. How delusional to think he would sacrifice his wife and family to stay in their toxic and antiquated midst where he was so belittled and unhappy for so many years.

  87. Abby says:

    That picture of Harry watching her step,MELTS MY ❤️

  88. Oatmeal says:

    People magazine us ON IT today and I hope Kaiser posts about it

    Could it be even The Queen is realizing how much she fumbled thr bag?

    First a story about TQ talking about diversity and inclusion in a precursor speech for Commonwealth Day

    Then, the story about TQ wearing a powder blue outfit fit with a brooch given to her by a former Canadian PM/Ambassador some high mucketty muck

    Could it be TQ has seen the overwhelming popularity and star power of the Sussexes return to England and is like “ok…I see yall…my bad”??

    • Chrissy says:

      If so, too little, too late. These appearances this weekend, were a giant F U, to that whole institution. As a Canadian, I think we should leave the Commonwealth. Even looking at the Queen’s face on our paper money, upsets me at this point.

  89. Oatmeal says:

    I am LMFAO.

    First Kate in turquoise/powder blue with navy jeans in her pap stroll

    Now TQ in powder blue with a canadian given brooch

    House Sussex but especially Meghan gotten shook!

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Ah yes – Katie Keen in her pre-arranged ‘Look at MEEEEEEEE I’m just a normal mom buying books for my kids’ pap stroll.

      • Ina says:

        Can’t stand her and her desperate tricks.

      • MaryContrary says:

        Yes-I’m not a Kate hater but really? We never, ever see her out and about, but they just catch her by chance shopping? I’m sure there will be photos of her out with the kids within the next few days too . . .

  90. Digital Unicorn says:

    Both looked amazing last night – that dress!!!! This is but a taste of what’s to come with these guys. And Katie Keen can only fantasise about Willieleaks look at her like that – he has NEVER looked at her like that – it much burn.

    Also the BBC has a video of Meghan visiting a school on Dagenham on Friday (international womens day) and its epic. Those KIDS loved her, esp one cheeky lad. One young girl initially thought it was Kate getting out of the car because of the hair and when realised it was Meghan she was super excited – LOL.

    It must burn TQ and Chuck to see what they have let leave to appease Cain and Unable. Unless they reign in Billy the Basher the Sussex’s will never return to the fold.

    • Alexandria says:

      DU I saw the girl’s interview and had to laugh when she said she thought it was Kate…see how much of a difference when you see one of your own becoming a royal or someone influential. I am Asian but I was so excited when she married Harry and I’m not even a teenager. It meant a lot to see a non-white person being on that balcony. Of course I held back my admiration first because I wanted to see her work ethic. There was also an interview with another girl and she referred Meghan as a Duchess, a royal person who wanted to empower her. See you can’t take the royalty out of HM. And she got a standing ovation. Bravo.

  91. Lyn says:

    I think she probably had a list of donts given to her and she kept to it. Now she’s leaving she no longer has to abide by their rules.

    Poor Meghan never stood a chance in the firm. Even muting herself she still outshone them. Whatever she did was never going to be enough because she wasnt married to the heir and in that family no one can outshine those higher up in the hierarchy.

    And look at her, knowing what to wear, how to walk, how to engage and interact, how to build and grow projects, ppl meet her and they are charmed etc. She would have made a wonderful ambassador not just for the royals but also the country.

    But she couldnt be allowed bc she shone way too brightly for the palace. Oh well.

    • AGuest says:

      Agree. The Sussexes had to dim their light for the boring others. But I think this farewell tour has magnified their star power and increased the value of the their brand. Take a look at their latest Instagram post highlighting Meghan’s school visit. The background song is the same from their wedding, “This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine.” The Sussexes are sending an unmistakable message and I love ❤️ it.

  92. Marie says:

    Meghan looked amazing! I love how they are matching in colors for their events.

    The standing ovation they received made me choke up. It’s a shame that he can’t use his military titles for the next year and this may be the last event he will wear a uniform. It’s wrong. SO many people support them. You can tell the standing ovation made him emotional. It’s a shame his own family doesn’t support his decision.

    Also, the Queen asked them to go to church today. Too little too late.

    • Kimber says:

      @Marie That standing ovation was amazing! You could tell Harry was moved. It’s all so sad- I believe so strongly that those military appointments are so important to Harry and TQ and company knew it. Taking those away were purely to punish him and hurt him. It disgusts me.

      • aquarius64 says:

        In the standing ovation Meghan curtsied to Harry, practically saying this is for you babe.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        Me to. Harry worked for that and it was a direct clapback to make him fall to his knees and return. Well, if that didn’t get him to come back guess what? That one year re-do, come back or else, ain’t going to work.

      • A says:

        My god, don’t even get me started. The whole stripping of Harry’s military appointments is infuriating. This is an institution to which he was dedicated, would have likely continued on with, and was willing to give his life for, and put himself in danger for, and the Queen took it away knowing what a huge part of him and his identity it was. That was really the most disgusting thing. I wonder what people in the military who have worked with Harry (or otherwise) think about it.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        @A I think his brothers/sisters in-arms probably lost a LOT of respect for the country they fight/fought for after this. Of course, the UK is more than the Queen so hopefully, they can still be glad of their role.

      • Some chick says:

        I believe they only took away the honorary titles. The ones he earned, they can’t take away without a court-martial. And he’s probably way more proud of those.

        Be interesting to see HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York (Pedo) without his honorary medals. I doubt he’d have any.

        How about Charles? I know Anne would still have some.

  93. Well-Wisher says:

    Simply beautiful Meghan and proud Harry. Archie parents are above okay. I am so happy to see the confident woman emerge. The kids are alright.

    • bamaborn says:

      @Well Wisher…yes!! Just relieved all the toxicity does not appear to have deemed their spirits. I so stan for this couple. #You Couda Had A Bad Bitch, seems so appropriate.

  94. Jay says:

    The funny part is, in a short-sighted effort to move the spotlight away from the Sussexes, those involved have virtually guaranteed that this outshining will happen. Because H and M know how to show up, because people really seem to respond to them, because of their glamour and (in all honesty) because their visits will now be a rare treat, organized not by the royal protocol, but by themselves, for themselves.
    Leading up to every holiday for the next decade, Wills will spend weeks having to answer questions about whether the Sussexes are coming for Christmas, Trooping the Colour, or the Queen’s Jubilee etc. I can just picture him, with a tense grimace, refering all inquiries to his brother, “You’ll have to ask Harry etc”, admiting they aren’t in touch very often, and be asked if he plans to reconcile. There will be a sense of anticipation for every event where the Sussexes might possibly attend, and if they do come all eyes will rightly be on them. Additionally, I hope they will have the privacy, happiness, and the kind of comfortable Normal Person experience that William reportedly aspires to – he’ll never get credit for driving his car from one end of the palace to the other when Harry’s out there teaching Archie to ride a bike or picking up veggies at the farmers market. In short, this is the biggest self own I’ve seen in a long time, and I am unabashedly enjoying it.

  95. Loretta says:

    Meghan was simply stunning. What a beautiful dress!

  96. RoyalBlue says:

    Slay! my red Duchess and ginger Duke! Our Duchess with solutions, as they called her on the Southern Africa tour. Charisma, is the one thing Kate wishes she had. You can’t put on a pretty dress and a tiara and expect people to adore you. And no matter how much they play act no one is buying what the Cambridges are selling.

  97. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Why are they shaking hands????
    They have to go home to Archie!
    Gah!

  98. Nic919 says:

    Two iconic looks two days in a row.

    • L4frimaire says:

      She is wearing so many British designers and brands on this trip, and it looks great. From dresses and blouses to shoes and bags. She really is showcasing some really talented designers, and so many items are already sold out. Loved that Topshop blouse, that little barrel purse from the school visit ( that whole look, very Chanel-like, but more accessible),and her look at the National Theatre. The evening gowns were stunning but everything she’s worn is just amazing, and she did it with deliberation and thought. She could have shown up in U.S.or Canadian brands, but used almost exclusively UK based brands, and nothing was crazy expensive-except for the Manolo and Loewe bags. Even the evening gowns, though pricey, were not totally out there. Also, a lot of the designers are women, while others, while UK based, are foreign born, but have invested in the U.K. Very smart and strategic choices, and good for British businesses. The Royal family really let their pettiness bring out their worst and now they are leaving the island.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        Which makes you think – was 1.) she was being told what to wear to fit in? or 2.) did she cut back on her clothes budget deliberately due to the flack she got?

  99. anniefannie says:

    I’m reminded of a quote about her MIL….

    “Someone with a natural nobility who was classless and who proved in the last year that she needed no royal title to continue to generate her particular brand of magic.”

  100. MaryContrary says:

    She is glowing. But in terms of her outfits during the last few days-no way Jessica Mulroney is still styling her. I’m guessing she’s actually getting help from Edward Enninful and British Vogue .
    . . .

  101. swirlmamad says:

    Check out People.com — TQ FINALLY invited Harry and Meg to church today and rode with them! Wonder what took SO long for that invite? If she’d done that, say, a year ago, maybe we wouldn’t be having the Farewell Tour right now. Hindsight is 20/20.

    • DM2 says:

      The Queen rode with them? I thought they met her at the church. It would have been nice if she did ride with them.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Ah, my mistake. I guess that would’ve been too much to ask for! Guess we should be satisfied with the invite itself 😉

  102. Joanna says:

    Obviously she is beautiful but she is also very photogenic as well! As someone who is not photogenic at all, I am quite jealous.

    • Jules says:

      Me too lol! Yes she is gorgeous, but I have never seen a bad photo of her. The camera loves her.

  103. aquarius64 says:

    This red number is Revenge Dress 2.0. And it reminded me of the Stevie Wonder song “Woman in Red”

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa0nQL239tY&list=RDQa0nQL239tY&start_radio=1

    By caving to the BM coven and Slick Willie the BRF lost a lot. I bet Bill told Kate to do the pap stroll to keep the focus on House Cambridge. This was too obvious. Kate is probably wondering what she is going to wear for the Commonwealth Service because she knows Meghan is going to be subtle but stun.

  104. Justwastingtime says:

    Full disclosure.. I don’t typically watch Fox News (shocker I know) so I can’t identify the anchor… but.. I was flipping channels the other night and I heard this old British lady say Meghan Markle so I stayed on the channel briefly.. basically she was spewing venom and said that Meghan Markle insulted the Queen, that American women who is one step away from being trailer trash. Not so surprising since Murdoch own fox and the daily mail and she is suing one of his entities right? The thing that made me laugh was the entirely blank face on the fox anchor.. no follow up questions and comments and he went straight to the next story as fast as possible. My sense was the delivery and claims were too toxic for Fox News and that is saying something

    • Alexandria says:

      Or the anchor just wanted that soundbite and couldn’t be bothered to muster up any defence due to lack of ethics as a person and/or lack of professionalism as a journalist.

  105. anon says:

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are absolutely killing it.

    And yes, I’m here for Otis Redding on their Instagram feed. Brilliant choice of music.

    Dear Meghan: I’ll see your Otis Redding and raise you Jennifer Lopez’s Get Right. Piers Morgan’s head would absolute explode, lol!

    Happy International Women’s Day. :)

  106. Jaded says:

    OK – compare her visit to the VERY excited students in Dagenham to the dry, personality-less and unengaged (except for mad grins) Kate – this just brought joy to my heart….https://www.itv.com/news/2020-03-07/meghan-visits-essex-school-ahead-of-international-women-s-day/

    • carmen says:

      It seems so natural and effortless the way Meghan is able to engage and captivate people. She just comes across as being so genuine. Kate seems so rehearsed and forced…Just my opinion based on what I’ve seen.

  107. Awkward symphony says:

    Goddess🤩🤩🤩 no wonder they felt intimidated by their charisma. My my Harry is also 🔥🤩

  108. Angel says:

    She looks gorgeous! I love the color, the fit, the cape, her styling, all of it!

    This is the best look she’s ever worn. She needs to keep doing this kind of fit and style in the future. (The turquoise was beautiful, but didn’t fit well in the bust and underarm area, per usual. This covers the bad fit there, if there is one.)

    And like others have said, I wish that I had her posture. They both look so good.

  109. aquarius64 says:

    That witch who called Meghan trailer trash is getting dragged on Twitter.

    I wonder what went down between the queen and the Sussexes? I wonder if she’s worried there will be crowds out for the service tomorrow to cheer the Sussexes ….or boo members of the BRF? She better not tell them not to come because that will go down worse. Or…the queen saw the crowds and wants to re-negotiate Sussexit?

  110. Suz says:

    Harry and Meghan are going to be seen as one of the greatest love stories, aren’t they? Leaving royalty to be with his love. Much better than Edward and Wallis what with the whole being buddies with Hitler thing.

  111. JRenee says:

    They look marvelous

  112. GuestOne says:

    Meghan is killing it in this goodbye tour lol. Stunned yesterday and the standing ovation was lovely. Clearly meant a lot to Harry. Of course the Fail says her wearing red, white and blue is because of Kate!

    A Times columnist who has been awful to Kate in the past& especially hideous to Meghan& was telling her to go back to America last year, is now lamenting how boring royal watching will be. Goes to show the abuse was like sport to some.

    Their final appearances this week have been going viral on social media and the school visit has attracted a lot of comments on what the royal family has lost in terms of representation. Ironic that the Queen has a note about importance of diversity for the Commonwealth Day service on the eve before Sussexes departure- as a result of racist abuse etc. Like with William’s bafta speech just shows these speeches are just empty words& platitudes.

    Pretty awful that press determination to smear Meghan means they have dragged a sixteen year old student into it& suggested he kissed her during her IWD school engagement when he didn’t. Just shows they are justified to not want to work with the royal rota anymore.

    Glad that the MSNBC commentator got so much pushback. She forgot she wasn’t in Britain where she could sadly probably get away with those comments with no pushback. Buzzfeed did an article showing she had a blog post where she talks about Harry’s apparent sexual obsession with Meghan. Combined with that article saying the Male reporters thought Meghan was too sexy to be a royal, there is a very problematic discourse around Meghan full of misogynoir.

  113. Liz version 700 says:

    She is breathtaking! They are a beautiful couple and she definitely came to let people know what they will be missing. Just stunning.

  114. AGuest says:

    There’s a photo on Pinterest of Princess Diana wearing a red caped gown similar to Meghan’s. Now that’s how you cos-play.

  115. Canadian bacon says:

    Think her Canadian friend is helping her with her wardrobe without any royal advisors!!

  116. aquarius64 says:

    That article that compared Meghan and Kate did neither woman any favors. These sleazy male reporters obviously believe Meghan should have been nothing more than Harry’s royal bed toy and Archie just a kid born on the wrong side of the blanket. An American women of color was and is Harry’s choice and now a Princess of the United Kingdom, the Duchess of Sussex, the Countess of Dumbarton, and the Baroness of Kilkeel. Their son Archie is heir to those subsidiary titles and a legitimate successor to the throne. Those RRs are salty because Harry didn’t marry an English Rose and now there is ebony in the royal line. The smear campaign was not necessarily meant to drive her out but to bring her to heel like with other members of the BRF. Meghan had enough and decided to step back and Harry went along with her, a move that shocked everyone’s system. And Meghan is still suing the tabloids which has to stick in the RRs’ craws.

    These same creepy guys like Kate because she is pretty and kind. Read she is non threatening, won’t take a stand and won’t make a fuss when William’s scepter prunes more than a Rose bush. Royal husbands are expected to step out and the wives are supposed to take it. If Kate made any public noise about William it would have been it for her.

    Both women are “commoners” that married into the royal machine. One got out and her husband willingly went with her.
    The other stays to put up with Byzantine plots for wealth and status; both that can change based on precedence ( Charles) and petulance (William).

  117. Islandgirl says:

    The BRF and the BM treated Meghan as if she were Kate. Had worked all her life to be a princess, didn’t know or want anything else and so would accept any kind of treatment no matter how reprehensible because….what else can you do?
    Big mistake..Meghan was an accomplished woman who had a life before becoming a royal and didn’t think that being a part of the royal family was the be all and end all.

  118. Stickybeak says:

    On the Fail someone commented on footage of MM looking questionable in the car afterwards. There’s a pic, can’t find the video?

    • Bren says:

      The picture you speak of was photoshopped, period.

    • Tina says:

      That pic if PHOTOSHOPPED! They didnt even include all of H’s medals in the fake pic. Just disgusting. This is the same crap they did to the Xmas photo.

  119. Awkward symphony says:

    @STICKYBEAK that’s a megxt doctored/photoshoped picture(look at the different brown makeup,missing earings..etc). They did the same with the Sussexs Christmas card. In a rush to BULLY Meghan they fell into another trap. I sense that her lawyers will be adding this and the Christmas card to her lawsuit against the fail. These fools will practically be paying H&M’s rent😏

  120. Gingerbee says:

    Wow, Meghan looks stunning and Harry is looking good too.

  121. Freddy says:

    OMG!!!! She looks AMAZING!!!! And I will be using “Petty Bettys” and “You Could’ve Had a Bad Bitch Farewell Tour”…LOL

  122. Hildog says:

    Just dropped in to say wow, she looks great in all of these bright colors. Also, the photo that shows off Megan’s perfect posture is inspiring me to go back to yoga and barre!
