Duchess Meghan wore a crisp white Valentino suit in the Netherlands

What a great day for white suits, gold jewelry, sun-kissed skin, moisturizer and white purses. Here are the first photos of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the Netherlands, today, Good Friday. The Invictus Games’ Opening Ceremony is tomorrow, but clearly the VIPs have meetings, photo-ops and lots of handshakes. Harry and Meghan both look radiant, and I can tell that Meghan has been in the pool with the kids (or in the ocean). She looks happy and free. So does Harry. What a moment.

Meghan is apparently in a Valentino suit and bag. The latest season, Valentino was showing a lot of hot pink – wish we were so lucky – and baggy suits. This is sort of a retro silhouette, but I think the fit of the pants sort of saves the ensemble from looking too zoot-suity. The pants are great. Love the purse too, but I love a crisp white purse. Kate is going to cry again when she sees the number of buttons on Meghan’s jacket (twelve buttons total). Oh, and the shoes are Aquazzura? Perhaps even her wedding shoes?

Anyway, stay blessed! Everything about this makes me so happy.

    Gorgeous!!! ( screaming Voice)

    • Jacqueline says:

      They both look happy and wonderful.

      • This is what true happiness looks like. When it just radiates through you like this. They are living their best lives on their own terms and free from toxic bullies.

    • Princessk says:

      Yes! Yes! Yes! I knew that this would be the year that Meghan would claim her right to go wherever she wants and whenever she wants.

      A vision of beauty, authenticity and integrity. Long may she reign in our hearts.

    • booboocita says:

      Note to Khate: THIS is how you smile at a public event. Warm, friendly, relaxed, and glowing. No giant staring eyes or clenched jaw (when it’s not gaping).

  2. Eggbert says:

    Sooooo gorgeous! I’m filled with joy for them.

    • Giddy says:

      I feel the same. I’m so proud of “our” duchess and M&H looks so happy. There’s no strain in those smiles, they radiate happiness!

      • Nuks says:

        Now that’s how you do it. Take notes Kate, you self-conscious tree branch.

        Boy this makes me happy. That suit is 💯

    • QueenB says:

      Sickening DM saying Meghan was “inspired” by Khate’s ISLAND FAILURE tour dressing. OMG I FEEL RAGE

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ No worries @QueenB — In the Caribbean, Khate was trying to copy Meghan (and to pre-empt at the same time) by wearing that white pantsuit with the orange top. Duchess Meg is in her own Universe at the Hague Invictus Games wearing her crisp, pristine, on-point, all-over white!

        Khate never wore pantsuits to official events nor on tours until Meg slayed in that black McQueen ensemble with the white blouse, at her first Endeavour Awards, in February 2018!

        As we know, there ain’t no way to be ‘inspired’ by a jealous, hateful cold fish who is trying and failing to co-opt you. Eh! 😆

      • NiqGee says:

        The thing about Kate’s white suit is that she wore orange with it…to meet the leader of the political party whose colour is green. I’m sure she thought she did something with that suit but the only thing she did was insult the Prime Minister. She didn’t do the bare minimum of research or she would have known that orange is the colour of the Opposition party, not the party of the sitting government. No wonder he ‘fired’ them right on the spot.

        I say this as a Jamaican living in Jamaica.

  3. koko says:

    Lovely. She just radiates JOY.

  4. ChillinginDC says:

    Nice.

  5. C says:

    Radiant!! I’ve loved her Sophie Lis necklace ever since she wore it to her last visit to the National Theatre in 2020, so happy to see her rewearing it!

  6. MissMarirose says:

    I saw on Twitter that she also had a coat on at one point but gave it to a lady who had brought her newborn and didn’t anticipate the drop in temperature at the event.

    • thaisajs says:

      She did and what a wonderful thing to do. It’s the kind of thing Diana would have done. Because, you know, she cared about real people.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Aww..love that. Doesn’t surprise me. Meghan is someone who thinks about other people and their babies.

  7. Escondista says:

    So modern and fresh

  8. Cessily says:

    Absolutely stunning! Love this look on her, the color is perfect. She gave up her tan coat to keep an infant warm.. that made me a little teary eyed. She just has that special light that shines from within. Praying for a wonderful event for all the heroes that are competing.

  9. Cinders says:

    Living well is the best revenge.
    They both look great – relaxed, confident and happy.

    • Dutch says:

      What’s more everyone around them is that way. Compare that to the way everyone looked like they were waiting for their turn at the dentist during the Cambridge tour.

  10. Feeshalori says:

    A simply lovely look. What is the thread that encircles her wrist and extends to her finger?

    • Jaded says:

      I believe it is an East Indian Haath Phool or Panja “bridal” bracelet, which translated means “the flower of a hand”. They seem to be a happening jewelry item now!

      • Feeshalori says:

        Thanks, Jaded. I remember the silver hand jewelry popular back in the 70’s, this is a more delicate look.

    • Merricat says:

      Lol, I sincerely doubt Kate would wear “the flower of the hand.”

      • Jaded says:

        Kate would wear “the switchblade of the hand”.

      • Feeshalori says:

        I just saw on another site that gave a rundown of Meghan‘s jewelry that this is a gold hand chain — called the “Kitten Mitten” — by the New York brand Catbird. It’s described as “easy breezy cool and super foxy.”

    • QueenB says:

      In Hindi, haath is hand and phul (phool) is flower; it’s an item worn by Indian brides, and on special occasions

    • Ennie says:

      Check the insta of Catbirdnyc, they are jewelers that Meghan loves. They call particular bracelet “kitten mitten”. They make beautiful, very delicate jewelry, I think Meghan has several items by them.
      Ha, other poster beat me to it, yes, their jewelry is beautiful, nothing huge.

  11. Babz says:

    She looks absolutely sun kissed, and she’s not trying to cover her freckles one bit. She’s pure California girl – relaxed, happy – you love to see it. I’m really digging the hand chain/bracelet attached to her wedding rings – haven’t seen this before from her. So effortlessly chic! Wishing them and all the veterans and their families wonderful, joyful Invictus Games!

    • bettyrose says:

      IKR? I don’t know why I’m surprised, but I guess I’ve mostly only seen pictures of her in Toronto or London since they haven’t been out much during the Pandemic. That’s the look of someone enjoying a California life.

  12. Case says:

    Beautiful and stylish per usual! She glows from the inside out.

  13. L4Frimaire says:

    She looks beautiful and glowing. I love the loose relaxed suit and the longer blazer, that it’s slightly androgynous. I love that you can’t see a blouse under the jacket. They both looks so happy and excited. It’s so great the Invictus Games are finally here after a 2 year delay!

  14. bettyrose says:

    I’ll just admit that I don’t understand white as a clothing color. It’s 100 kinds of disasters waiting to happen, or it would be on me. But the cut of the suit is amazing. That’s a power suit. It’s a totally appropriate look for the moment but also not a distraction from the real purpose of the event. They do this so well. I’m excited for their upcoming public appearances!

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      Yeah, on me an all-white ensemble would be a total disaster. Meghan, however, looks amazing.

    • mazzie says:

      Agreed but wth their wealth, they can afford the cleaning costs.

    • Denise says:

      I attended an all-white wedding this past weekend and sure enough, I had a stain on my dress by the end of the night. I was proud that it didn’t happen before dinner though. LOL. Also, my accessories were gold too so when I read that detail I screamed to myself, “Madame Duchess and I are twinning!” LOL.

  15. Isa says:

    I don’t think it fits her well, but she always looks radiant in white. I covet her jewelry collection. I love the dainty gold jewelry she tends to wear.

    • Jais says:

      Idk, I really love the fit. A little oversized and slouchy. That’s my jam but people have different tastes. Love her jewelry also. Overall, she is stunning.

      • Bethany have says:

        I think her outfit looks great on her. But I wish her slacks were a little shorter.

      • Lux says:

        Agreed. Just love the fit. As someone who also had two kids less than 3 years apart (I believe that’s the age difference between Lili and Archie…mine are even closer) I would LOVE that suit in a linen fabric and would wear it like pajamas. SO comfy/stylish/professional!

    • Thelma says:

      Love the jewelry. Not loving the fit of the suit. It looks boxy and big to me. I liked the fitted suits she used to wear on Suits and in London better. Having said that, she looks radiant! They both do and so happy. Living well is the best revenge.

      • Surly Gale says:

        I’m thinking it was a great choice so as to avoid figure/body comments. We can’t really see her private shape after 2 babies. I admire her more and more for how thoughtful she is … and consistent. If we do see her in a figure hugging outfit, it will be on her terms. For the opening though, I think this a brilliant choice. And very fashion current it would seem.

      • Bettyrose says:

        &Surly – Exactly! The cut detracts from body comments. She looks sleek and stylish without making the conversation about her look. Okay we’re talking about her look but we’re practically a Sussex fan page. Fashion first and then we’ll talk about the substance of the event.

      • Merricat says:

        Lol, please.

      • Ennie says:

        I was undecided, but I checked twice and I love the fit! It is perfect from the front, she has a booty, but it is not too loose. And the pants are not dragging, but show her AMAZING shoes.
        Everything looks great, I love that she is not killing herself to show how slim she is now. I know she is very healthy, tho, and a hard worker to boot!

    • Carrotface says:

      I agree, I don’t love the boxy double breasted jacket look (on anyone – I think she looks as good as it is possible to look in that silhouette). I kind of wish I’d been able to see what the outfit looked like with the overcoat, but it was so sweet and thoughtful of her to lend it to the woman with the baby!

      I do love how great and healthy her hair looks and her whole general California beach energy vibe – even when I don’t love her outfits, she’s got this sort of internal illumination going on that elevates whatever she is wearing.

      • Tessa says:

        She is so radiant and beautiful she makes anything she wears look great.

      • Jais says:

        Internal illumination…love that and yes this is what Meghan has. On point, @carrotface.

      • Joey 🦘 says:

        I love white bc it’s a political statement for woman’s equality. Hilary Clinton wore white to give her acceptance speech for President of USA I’m really old time hairdresser but kept my education current. Cosmetologist have a group of stylist from around the globe. A clothes designer has a concept for NEXT years style. From hair makeup shoes..n everything in between. The hair committee was tasked to do the hair and submit looks this Is just progress. My clients wanted new n current looks. If it was any more contoured it would be dated. Same with her red dress…yet all the awards shows had the look. That’s why she’s an Icon. She’s exquisite. IMHO

      • LeahTheFrench says:

        I like the idea more than the execution here, I think. She looks radiant, her hair and makeup are perfect, and white looks fantastic on her. Also love a trouser suit, and it’s fine not to pull the focus away from the event with an outfit that would be too body-hugging (which we know would attract endless comments on her figure etc.) But this looks too boxy for her frame. The pants work in my view, but the jacket just looks 2 sizes too big. She makes up for it with a radiant smile and by projecting true joy, but I think her stylist could have done better.

    • Freaky Lizard says:

      Agreed. I really loved Kate’s well tailored white suit with orange top in Jamaica. That would’ve been perfect for Meghan to wear as a nod to the Netherlands.

      • Likeyoucare says:

        Theme dressing is kate style not meghan.

      • QueenB says:

        Yeah, I think you’re on the wrong page, glorifying Kate and implying she wore it better. Holy crumbling palaces, Batman….

      • Original Penguin says:

        We already know she looks amazing in that McQueen suit, as she already wore it in black. I want to say it was to the Endeavour awards? It was one of my favourite looks of hers when she was a ‘working royal’

      • Gingerbee says:

        @QueenB, they are not fooling anyone. They just have to get their dig in about Meghan. Duchess Meghan looks fantastic.

    • Carmen says:

      I’m not feeling the suit, the boxy cut isn’t doing her any favors, but white is definitely her color, and she and Harry both look radiantly happy and content with each other. That’s all I got.

      • Lee says:

        I agree with the commenters that don’t love the cut – I really dislike it. If anything, I think it opens the door for “is she pregnant” – and it’s likely just the trend, but I think it’s a trend that, as Tom and Lorenzo would say, is for models only.

        That being said, she looks amazing and white and is glowing and looks happy!

    • Rhea says:

      Yes, I think it will look nicer if it’s more fitted to her body but perhaps, it’s the trend now to wear relaxed silhouettes. The white looks great against her tan.

      • Isa says:

        Meghan has her own forming fitting suits- the black one she’s wore before would look incredible in white.
        I like the slouchy suit trend. I think she’s got the figure for it, whereas I would look like a kid playing dress up. I think it may be the sleeves or the pants throwing this one off.

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      I am also not a fan of the cut. She’s so petite that she’s swimming in it.
      She looks radiant, though…my mind is creating a split screen with Meghan on one side and yellow, peplumed curtain-dress Khate on the other, and laughing my behind off.

    • Poisonella says:

      I agree about the fit. She’s such a beautiful woman but I don’t think I have ever seen her in something that fit well. Even the fit of her wedding dress was off.

  16. Mooshe1 says:

    I can’t believe how beautiful she is!!! Just gorgeous

  17. SIde Eye says:

    I am so invested in this couple and their happiness. It just makes me so happy to see them win at life! Meghan looks so gorgeous!

  18. Mrs. Smith says:

    Gorgeous and stylish! They are both radiant—I love it! Also? It all seems effortless, from flying commercial (mostly) undetected, dropping in on Granny (waving to tourists + no photos), then arriving relaxed and smiling to throngs of fans. Compare this to the lives and work of the Cambs (oof).

  19. C-Shell says:

    And, she’s not dressed like a flag! This is sheer perfection. Her hair, glossy in loose waves, the subtle jewelry, the fabulous Aquazzura heels, the free and easy smiles … brings tears to my eyes. I love the suit. She looks chic but comfortable. PERFECT. 😄

    • Princessk says:

      Lol!

    • Ginni says:

      @C-Shell….l share your sentiments! She is perfection! I just love Harry and Meghan 🥰❤️

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes!!!! Meghan and Harry look like they are extremely happy and enjoying life to the fullest!!!

        Meghan seems to shine everywhere she goes!!! Meghan is a ray of pure happiness, brilliance, empathy and most importantly, a woman who knows her worth and is living her life of the terms that are important to her and her husband!!

        Harry and Meghan are a dynamic team together and there in NO denying the fact that they are the best couple to survive and thrive out of Salty Island of Petty and Jealous!!

        I am incredibly happy for both Harry and Meghan!! They deserve every bit of happiness that comes their way!!! 🥰🥰🥰

  20. HeatherC says:

    I love the look.

    As for my ginger brother (also a ginger), I hope he remembers his thinning head of hair needs sunblock too…(IDGAF about Elegant Bill….let his dome match his temper and experience pain….)
    (honest! When I went through chemo, I forgot about sunblock to my head. BIG PAINFUL MISTAKE!)

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Sunblock is so important!!! I started wearing it in my 30’s, which was 30 years ago. But I just bought my future SIL some 50SPF, as he is a ginger as well!!

    • schmootc says:

      I’m very pale and have learned to put sunblock on my part. Otherwise, it’s not good. And then when it starts peeling, it’s like you have the worst dandruff in the world. Bad news, for sure.

    • BeanieBean says:

      My hair is so thin, I always wear a hat when I’m outside. It’s just easier.

  21. lucy2 says:

    They look great, very happy and confident.
    I think I’d like the jacket a bit more fitted, but she looks fabulous.
    I would stain that suit with something before I got out the door.

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      @Lucy2
      I would stain it while it was still hanging in the closet in a protective garment bag 🙋

    • Kate says:

      Yeah, I don’t love the length of the jacket, but still think she looks amazing in this. She is such a stunning woman.

    • LBB says:

      I agree about the jacket, but she looks amazing as always. I also LOVE her jewelry choices. I am so happy to see them both.

  22. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    Hoo boy!!!!
    Who’s with me that there’s ALL of the temper tantrums going on right now in Cambridge land????

    • Jaded says:

      Multiple heads are blowing up as we speak and I heard there was an earthquake in Courchevel today.

    • Cinders says:

      What a delicious thought.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ MerlinsMom1018, you always bring us back to reality in regards to the how the Lambridges must be feeling right now…there were probably many avalanches due to tiny fists being slammed about all over town as well!!!

      This has been a glorious month as not only have the master of lazy, tone deaf and the incompetent completely destroyed a short charmless tour, but they are off on another expensive vacation that will be certainly filled with the ongoing tantrums of Inelegant Willi and his hair jumping ship from the anger stemming from his head!!! I would imagine he is inconsolable this week no matter how many bushes he is searching though…..and KHate is wondering why he is so angry this time as well!!

    • Tessa says:

      Will is probably incandescent and his vacation is ruined. LOL.

    • Rene says:

      Wet Willy is incandescent with rage

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yes, out of the country on yet another extravagant vacation and not home to leak to Wooten that the Sussexes were visiting the queen. Will Wooten demand an extra pound of flesh? Stay tuned.

  23. Truthiness says:

    Happiness looks so good on them, they are blooming in front of us. Let the games begin!

  24. tamsin says:

    Like the over-sized jacket. She wears it to perfection.

  25. Jaded says:

    She looks ahhhmaaazzzing!! Cue Cate “cosplay in white” in 3…2…1…

    • Layla says:

      Lololol @jaded she already did. Remember when Meghan wore the white suit when she and Harry were on that double date with Eugenie. Keeny immediately sent her minion to buy a white pantsuit. The “tell lizzy” outfit

  26. Z says:

    She has no business being so photogenic lol. She looks great, they both do…..I am going to enjoy the salty tears from salt island

  27. Fancyhat says:

    They both radiate happiness.

    I’ve already seen the RR trying to call out Meghan copying Kate for wearing a white suit. So absurd

    • L4Frimaire says:

      The amount of times Kate copies Meghan, she should be flattered if Meghan actually copies anything she wears. The only thing similar is the color of the suit and buttons. Love the relaxed fit and longer length.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Yeah, those two version of a white pantsuit could not be more different. Kate pairing an orange blouse with her suit was also super different from Meghan’s styling.

        Meghan looks so iconic here. She is picking up the ‘80s/‘90s trend but in a cool way.

  28. girl_ninja says:

    Ahhhh…living a life of love and happiness will surely show up on your face. Those two are glowing.

  29. Twinkle says:

    She looks happy. Good for her! Living well is the best revenge. I hate the cut of the suit. It looks too long on her and the cut is to boxy. It should have been cut a little more tailored in the waist, but still a comfy fit. That tailoring would have made the suit not look like she borrowed the outfit from a much bigger person. Those buttons look so cheap.

  30. JRenee says:

    They are radiant…truly radiant!

  31. C says:

    People use the “it needs tailoring” line on Meghan’s clothes way too much imo. Particularly here when this is exactly how most if not all of the Valentino 2022 suits appeared on the runway.

    • Nic919 says:

      This is the current style which is a throwback to suits in the 90s with a more relaxed fit. And it works on her. White also is great on her.

  32. Erin says:

    She looks great. However, how she’s holding her hand to her chest makes it seem like she’s not comfortable w the deep V. I may be wrong!

    So happy to see them.

  33. Plums says:

    FRECKLES.

    That is all.

  34. Jasper says:

    She looks fantastic and happy! I’m so thrilled for them both. Extra kudos for wearing a white suit. The stains I would get on that in the first 3 minutes….

  35. February Pisces says:

    Love this look, she looks amazing. She just knows how to carry a look, she wears the clothes not the other way round. Anyway I’m going to go and search online for a budget version of the outfit.

  36. Imara219 says:

    She looks radiant but I’m not a huge fan of the look. Like I understand it conceptually looks good together but personally I feel the baggy pants would look better with a different top.

  37. aquarius64 says:

    It’s Valentino and the jewelry is hers, including the Welsh gold wedding ring. No borrowed bling from the royal vault that were stolen from colonized countries. The Fail has price pointed the jewellery.

  38. Red Weather Tiger says:

    She looks effortlessly fabulous, happy, and free. Giving her coat to the lady with the baby just makes me love her even more. 💕

    • Feeshalori says:

      I saw the clip on Twitter where Meghan is wrapping the coat around the baby and it’s so sweet. What a considerate gesture from one mom to another.

  39. Mamasan says:

    They look happy unlike the Royal Family.

  40. Kit says:

    I really like this look on Megan l know de Jacket is not fitted but that’s not de look she is going for here, it’s very her, she looks fresh and modern, gorgeous!

    Ps Lovvvve de bag !!

  41. Nev says:

    Go on Duchess!!!

  42. JFerber says:

    She looks spectacular!!!!! Effortless chic, as always. Wait for Bones (love the new nickname) to be wearing a white suit in 3, 2, 1 seconds.

    • Pork Chops and Applesauce says:

      That’s it, Kate IS “Bones”. She looks so unhappy in spite of the maniacal smile that’s glued to her face most of the time.

    • Feeshalori says:

      She already did wear a white suit during the disaster tour, but you can bet she’ll wear it again fairly soon.

  43. Eurydice says:

    Not a fan of such a long, boxy jacket, but she still looks wonderful – they both do.

    So interesting that the Daily Fail article is practically gushing over her. Of course, they can’t resist the dig here and there, but the tone is really different than before.

    • booboocita says:

      I noticed that too. I think someone at the Fail finally realized that criticism of H & M during the Invictus Games might be read as criticism of the Games themselves, and would go over poorly with their readership. They don’t want to be seen as unsupportive of British veterans. I expect the nastiness to resume after the Games.

      • Rene says:

        But as usual, the nasty posters on The Fail are as awful as ever. I get particularly annoyed when Americans bash Meghan and praise Kate

  44. LIONE says:

    Everyone is talking about the jacket not being fitted, but it’s actually too small and not too big.
    You see it on the pictures from the side especially, but also front. It’s not suppose to be that tight over the lower belly and hips. It’s suppose to be loose and a bit oversized.

    It’s a beeeeautiful suit and I understand why she would want to wear it.

    • Eurydice says:

      A gorgeous suit. To me, it looks more like a misses size on a petite body. This happens to me when the “waist” area is too long and tightens around the hips. I can tell the difference when I hike up the shoulders a few inches – then everything falls into place.

  45. Loretta says:

    I love everything about this look. So beautiful!

  46. Janet DR says:

    I am just ridiculously content to see them out and about, safe and happy!

  47. Kyliegirl says:

    They both look so happy! Makes me happy to see this. The suit and accessories look amazing on her. Even better in motion. The length is perfect.

    • Pork Chops and Applesauce says:

      That’s exactly it, when you see her outfit in motion, it looks fantastic. It has flow and a smooth motion, she glides in it.

  48. Lexistential says:

    I am overjoyed. THIS is how I’ve wanted to see her all this time: happy, at work, with purpose, and glowing.

    Shame on the BRF 1,000,000 times over for holding her back.

  49. Merricat says:

    I love that not only do the Sussexes look happy, the people around them look genuinely happy to see them.

  50. Polo says:

    They look so good!! Meghan looks so confident and radiant!! They both just look happy and carefree which is all I could hope for after what they’ve been through.
    Love that her earrings and shoes are from her wedding/engagement. So sweet!!

    I also love that Meghan has consistently embraced her post pregnancy body. A lot of celebs will rush to “snap back” to pre baby body but with both her pregnancy’s she seems to have taken her time and embraced the changes.
    I will say I’ve never really liked these kind of suits but she looks very chic, fresh, and modern.

  51. Concern Fae says:

    Can I confess that I would like to see Meghan with short hair (perhaps a wig), just to see if Wiglet cuts her own in jealousy after all the complements M gets?

    Just my petty thoughts.

    • Pork Chops and Applesauce says:

      Ha!

    • Rene says:

      I don’t think wiglet would look good with short hair. She has always worn it long

        ^^ @Rene, Khate cut her hair to shoulder-length for Wimbledon 2017, when she was named Patron or something something. The cut looked good. Khate was trying to get a fresh look to show off, and to drown out the rampant speculation as to whether Meghan would show up again that year.

        At the time, all the tabloids were displaying pics of Meg at Wimby in 2016 (around the time she first met Harry). Meg didn’t go in 2017. Serena was on maternity leave, and Meg was in a hot courtship with Harry, prepping for their August 2017 trip to Africa!

  52. Sofia says:

    Love the colour and Meghan just glows. She looks absolutely radiant. I’m not a fan of the oversized aesthetic on anyone but I think Meghan is pulling it off and looks good.

    • Che Che says:

      I agree .Meghan is owning this look with confidence . Years ago she wore a baggy blue floral dress to Harry’s cousin’s wedding. Many said the dress was too big, but I loved the audacity to not wear fitted looks on her slim , petite build. Her style is on point for her and others don’t need to follow.

      • Duch says:

        I thought of the same outfit seeing some of the comments. She looks great – esp as an opening outfit to her time there.

    • aftershocks says:

      @Sofia: ” I think Meghan is pulling it off and looks good.”

      Yep, I agree. Meg has a way of dressing just right for every occasion, in a way that suits her unique style and presence. 🤩

      Our Madame Duchess Meghan just has that flair, and that special something that comes from within. It can’t be taught, denied, nor duplicated! 💕

  53. Meg says:

    She looks radiant
    I really dont want to be a downer i promise but with these pictures
    I cant unsee a point someone made in a comment from a previous post – is the loose fitting clothing because shes wearing a bullet proof vest? or purely fashion? The jacket isnt just pretty loose its long past her waist covering her rear end as well

    • Elizabeth says:

      That would have to be a really low cut bulletproof vest though? I don’t think so in this case.

  54. Elizabeth says:

    A beautiful, deeply confident suit. Love how happy, warm, natural, and relaxed Meghan looks!

    • Elizabeth says:

      And this is nothing like the tight, short-legged suit Kate wore with that bright *orange* floofy blouse! literally only the color is similar.

  55. Tessa says:

    She looks fabulous. So nice to see them together so happy. I will enjoy these pictures so much. Bravo to them. The veterans appreciate these games.

  56. Julia K says:

    At this price point, the jacket should fit better. Needs to come up at shoulders to have it fit better around hips with no gap in back. Other than that she looks great.

  57. ML says:

    Yay, they’re here! They look happy and healthy and ready to support veterans on their way to recovery. Love it!
    De Stentor (it’s in Dutch) reported that about 300 paparazzi were line (some of whom waited over 5 hours) to get H&M’s picture.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      No bad way to spin that!

    • Laura D says:

      300 paps and some of them waiting for five hours! Yet if we believe what is written in the UK tabloids, no-one likes them and no-one is interested in them. After missing out on the “real scoop” at Windsor Castle on Thursday, I would wager (for all their awful articles about H&M) a Fail photographer was front and centre of those paps clicking anything and anyone who resembled H&M!

  58. MellyMel says:

    She looks gorgeous and happy! They both do! And the suit is perfection. Over-sized suits are very in right now and she’s wearing this perfectly. Seeing comments from ppl not getting that, that’s how it’s meant to look. Also the hand bracelet chain is from Catbird.

  59. Mai B says:

    Love everything about this look.

  60. Matthew says:

    Oversized is the biggest trend right now. Every top model wears it. She looks sick (in a good way lol).

  61. Yo says:

    ZERO FLOPS

  62. minx says:

    Love the jacket, looks very current, the pants I wish were just a tad shorter and not quite as baggy.

  63. Mslove says:

    Duchess Meghan looks stunning, love the suit & jewelry.

  64. Harper says:

    Effortlessly chic and that suit looks very comfortable. Harry looks good too!

  65. Busyann says:

    I’ve missed them so much. 🙁

  66. Roo says:

    Does anyone else feel like a proud older sister or younger auntie when you see them making an impact and looking so healthy and happy while doing so? I always do. 🤗

  67. pocket litter says:

    Absolutely genuine and lovely. 💜

  68. anniefannie says:

    I think “radiant” ( particularly when applied to brides ) can be overused & exaggerated but in this case it’s almost an understatement. You can’t fake that!
    As for her suit & silhouette I’m of the same height and I’ve no idea how she’s pulling it off, but she does.
    These two are magic and after these last two years it’s exactly what’s needed

  69. VivaAviva says:

    They look so happy! I’m happy for them. Hate the suit, though. I’ll be glad when boxy goes out of style.

  70. Amy Bee says:

    She looks fabulous and they seem really happy and relaxed. Leaving the Royal Family was one of the best decisions they’ve ever made.

  71. highdensity says:

    She looks good, but suit is ill-fitting. Rarely do her clothes ever fit properly.

    • Cate says:

      I agree. She has an amazing glow and looks 100x better than I would so I can’t really hate on the poor fits but…I wish she would get a good tailor or something! In this case I think two big slouchy pieces is too much. Either the pants or or the blazer should have been a bit more fitted (not necessarily really figure hugging, just not soooo big and slouchy). She looks radiant regardless though.

      • minx says:

        Agree, I said that upthread. Fit the pants a bit more, that would be my choice. Not fitted, as you said, but just not with so much fabric.

  72. House of No says:

    I love how she makes elegant simplicity look grand. I’m so happy!!

  73. Mia1066 says:

    I love what she’s wearing (I had a boxy white double breasted suit in the 80s that was way more oversized ). I love this look on her. People always complain about the fit of her clothes but I’m not going down that road. She clearly doesn’t want skin tight. She’s had 3 pregnancies, birthed 2 babies, bodies change. Glad she’s not dieting herself down to a twig in order to be a clothes horse.

  74. Angela says:

    Gorgeous

  75. Jessica says:

    The suit fits her very well. It’s loose for a reason. Very tasteful.

  76. SourcesclosetoKate says:

    Now that’s how you do white! Not standing on a jeep doing photo ops, while ignoring those wanting reparations for essentially being kidnapped.

  77. Crowned Huntress says:

    I love her in all white but not a big fan of the cut of the blazer. If it was just a touch higher and a bit more tailored I think it would’ve looked a lot more flattering on her but she rocks it confidently and that’s all that matters.
    I love her jewelry and hair, Meghan continues to look so refreshed and happy and I love that for her.

    • Normades says:

      OMG screaming! The cut is perfect because it is absolutely on trend. The baggy suit is super trendy and business at the same time. Everyone saying it’s too baggy is missing the point. It’s baggy on purpose and she is rocking it. Kate could never be this cool and she is crying right now. Haha sorry.

      • Crowned Huntress says:

        Yes, that’s fine but not every trend looks great on every frame.🤷🏿‍♀️

        That jacket may as well be a dress on her. If she had worn it as a mini dress without the pants it would’ve looked better.
        Baggy jacket and baggy pants on her tiny frame makes her look like she’s swimming in fabric.

        Just an opinion. I adore Meghan all the same, which is why I offer fashion critique because I want her to look her absolute best any time she steps out in the public eye.

      • aftershocks says:

        LOL! Meg does Meg’s Jam. No one has to like every detail of everything Our gorgeous Duchess wears. Do any of us dress to please everybody??? That’s impossible. Meg dresses to please herself, and she’s the absolute bomb! The woman of the moment! The boss lady of our hearts in these times! She knows how to live with grace in every moment of her life. I’m older than Meg, but I’ve learned so much about how to live, and how to be by watching her navigate her amazing life experiences.

        Yeah, let’s have fun commenting in the knowledge that we can like what we like, prefer what we prefer, but Meg does Meg, no matter who is or isn’t on board with her choices. At the end of the day, it ain’t about the clothes anyway. It’s really not a fashion show with Meg. It’s about her brilliance, her energy, her unique vibe.

        Let’s enjoy seeing Meghan, and be grateful for seeing her, cuz she goin’ back to Montecito soon, and we gonna be missing her again for weeks on end. 😟 I hope M&H don’t show up at Jubbly. I’m waiting for Archetypes to drop in June. 🥰

      • minx says:

        Everyone is happy to see her, but that doesn’t mean we can’t critique her fashion.

  78. Totoro says:

    So refreshing to see proper pictures of the Duchess after so long. What strikes me is how genuinely happy and excited she looks to be there at the event. So different from the Cambridges Flop Tour where they just look like they’re there to be the centre of attention and to pose for their photo op, with their performative grimaces pasted on the face that don’t quite reach their eyes.

  79. Petra says:

    The is a great suit on Duchess Meghan. She’s wearing the heck out of this Valentino.
    Valentino’s 2022 collection of suits is supposed to fit loosely. A reinterpretation of vintage men’s tailoring, kinda like a zoot suit. I want this suit in the green colour that Tracee Ellis Ross has.

  80. SAS says:

    So cool! So relaxed! Stunning look, I’m a sucker for the current oversized trend and this is perfectly styled (her hairrrrrrr!!!). Love how thrilled everyone around them looks- a stark difference to the flop tour!

    The hilarious thing is that it will be impossible for Kate to copykeen. Thanks to the commenter who previously worked retail and categorised Kate as a “stuffer” aka, the customer who would only buy the smallest size she could possibly fit into, it’s all I can see now!

  81. Karkopolo says:

    I love everything about this! She looks so happy, glowy, and proud. The look is on fire; it feels fresh and modern but still sleek. It seems good for the occasion, as it’s fashionable, not too flashy, but formal enough for meeting with Buttigieg, Duckworth, etc. I love the dainty jewelry, especially the Catbird bracelet.

    I just wish people understood that this is tailored for the intended fit of the suit and doesn’t need to be form-fitting. I like the cut; I think it actually makes her look taller.

    • minx says:

      I get that it’s the intended fit. That doesn’t mean it can’t be modified to look better. I think the pants would look sing with just a hair less fabric, they’re drowning her. The jacket is great.

  82. Bea says:

    Meghan radiates beauty. She’s a walking advertisement for the California sun kissed look.

  83. Original penguin says:

    She looks radiant and happy. And rocks the white as usual. But this suit is designed for someone of Maxima’s height and the designer should have worked with her to adjust. I do wish designers were more considerate of those of us who are of a similar height to Madame Duchess.

  84. Over it says:

    The bag, the shoes, the suit, the hair, the glow and the way Harry looks and continues to look at her like she is his everything, This has made my day. A Happy Harry and Meghan is what it’s about for me.

    • Lady Digby says:

      I am so happy for them proving that Service is universal and that positivity spreads the love. Tabs and TOB are like bitter exes who can’t let go and it must be aging. H and M are happy and thriving and doing good. TOB needs to stay in his own lane because he has got plenty of castles with toilets and all of those buttons dont unbutton themselves, do they? So there is no need to be jealous of his younger brother if he is so happy

    • Gingerbee says:

      I have to agree with you, Over It. The suit is sold out, as well as the outfits Meghan wore this morning.

  85. tamsin says:

    I think if all the alterations that are suggested, it would just be a completely different outfit and a completely different look, and expressing differences in taste. I think the trousers and jacket are in balance, although personally I hate the wide-legged long puddly look pant wearing myself. If I tried the over-sized look it would be orphan Annie dressed by Goodwill. I’d have to be altered out of that look completely.

  86. Sajka says:

    Sorry, but the suit looks terrible. The jacket is far too long and shapeless. She is usually so stylish, but this is a total mistake.

    • Ennie says:

      You know what is the good thing? She is so much more than looks. This event is so much more than about looks, it is a great cause that they embrace.
      I think she looks great and that white suit looks perfect on her.

      • Sajka says:

        We always judge other people’s clothes and styling here – no matter what the event. I’m glad you like it. I don’t. My opinion in no way detracts from the purpose of the event.

  87. Slippers4life says:

    She looks just what I picture Californian in my mind. It’s like 2022 version of Pretty Woman on Rodeo Drive to me. I also love the story if her giving her tan coat to protect a new baby. Wonder if the looks would have been different. I think Megan’s style is more of a “the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts” kind of style, which I think Kaiser has said before. Which is also similar to Diana. I think I wouldn’t have liked Diana’s clothes on the rack, but they all looked amazing on her. That’s what I see in Meghan as well. Very much, she wears the clothes they don’t wear her. Who I feel badly for is team GB. The British Press I have access to seems to be doing their usual cartwheels to hurt H and M and at best, passive aggressively acknowledged she looks good while judging the price of her clothes. Is NOBODY in the BM, BRF, or British Government going to wish team GB good luck? Whatever you think of H and M, can you not give props to the wounded war veterans who fought for you? Unless I only have access to the tabloids and am missing something, has nobody in Government, media or the BRF wished team GB well? How sad and incredibly rude!

  88. Digital Unicorn says:

    Not keen on the fit but she looks beautiful. Wonder how long we will have to wait for CopyKhate to come out with the same outfit, hair and accessories.

  89. MsIam says:

    I have to say overall she looks chic because the look has just the right accessories. Very minimal, clean and modern. I was watching a fashion video that said oversized is the trend but you have to have it accessorized correctly so you don’t look like a kid wearing your mother’s clothes. And I must have that white bag right now, today!

  90. Agreatreckoning says:

    D@mn, she’s gorgeous and absolutely beams with her inner light. Love the suit.

    I’ll have what she’s having.
