Duchess Meghan wore a cream Khaite bodysuit for the Invictus opening ceremony

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games today, Saturday April 16th. The wide-shots of the crowd are particularly moving. We haven’t seen an Invictus Games since 2019, and so much has happened since then, including a global pandemic. More than six million people have died from Covid since the last games were held. These veterans fought for their countries and then they fought to make it to the Hague, to celebrate their wounded warrior community. It’s so moving.

Prince Harry wore a grey suit with no tie, because the man said “f–k ties.” Meghan’s bodysuit has been ID’d as a piece from Khaite, but I don’t know the ID on the trousers. The trousers are GOOD. Those pants are maybe my favorite thing she’s worn in the Netherlands? The necklace is Cartier, and the shoes are probably Manolos.

As for the speeches… Meghan introduced Harry, and she almost cried speaking about his service and his work to make the games happen. Harry was super-emotional too. All of this has been such a rollercoaster.

    I love this look. Casual and dressy at the same time.

    • Bettyrose says:

      My favorite so far. I’m crying at how good they are at this. The athletes deserve the best and they’re getting it.

      • BeanieBean says:

        I think I’m getting weepy in my old age, everything about the Invictus Games is making me tear up.

    • Kate says:

      Agree! She certainly knows how to wear the hell out of a pair of trousers.

      • Becks1 says:

        Also my favorite look so far. Those trousers are fantastic and I love the bodysuit. She and Harry both seemed so emotional.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Definitely one of her best evening looks, ever. Hands down. She’s also lost more weight since the Vax event in NY. Just stunning with her hair back like that… that face! And I want *every* outfit she’s worn this weekend!!!!!

      I can’t help but compare this crowd’s cheering and welcoming of H&M in this auditorium to when W&K walked into the BAFTAs that time. Here, entering the room to the cheers and yells, the standing ovation BECAUSE OF RESPECT, not to quiet and standing because of “protocol”… Oh boy, think we’re going to have another heat wave just off the angry incandescence going on in Europe right now!

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Do we know that to be true though (the quiet part) or was that something put out there to hide the fact a lot of A list celebrities gave them a chilly reception at the 2020 BAFTAs? I’m basing that on this link I found. Love the looks on the faces on some and that a lot of people were not even looking at them. *evil cackle*

        We can compare it to that still entertaining video clip of Will at the Dubai Expo event and one of his people was doing the gesturing thing to get people to cheer for him.

    • Mirage says:

      So heartwarming to see both Meghan and Harry hosting an event. Their natural charisma and warmth is so endearing. Meghan in particular is an incredible speaker. I loved how she talked about Harry service in the army.

      If we must speak about looks, I wish Meghan dressed more according to her frame. She did it better when she lived in Europe. Indeed, a Scandinavian style would look great on her. One that doesn’t accentuate the waist. Like these:

      The first all white trouser suit she wore was perfection!

  2. C-Shell says:


    I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying! I got emotional right along with them, and the pics of Meghan sitting in the audience with the tracks of her tears on her cheeks just break me. They are so formidable as a team, and their love and support for each other is extraordinary in any case, but when set alongside the Other Ones, the contrast is SHOCKING.

    I have loved every scrap Meghan has worn so far, but this is my favorite by miles. The bodysuit* and slacks are perfect. I need to see the shoes. Badly.

    *🤣🤣🤣 at “Khaite”

    • Lorelei says:

      @C-Shell, we were posting at the same time but I had the same exact reaction to “Khaite!”
      I can’t wait to see how the derangers try to spin this into Meghan trying to “make a statement” or some such bs by wearing this designer. LMAO

    • Christine says:

      I have come to grips with the fact that I am going to need all of the Kleenex when watching videos from Invictus Games.

      Meghan looks stunning! I have loved all of her looks, but this one is particularly lovely.

      • Mai B says:

        My faves 🥺🥺🥺❤❤❤

      • Meg says:

        I feel like the slacks make her midsection look boxy and not as flattering?
        Their emotions during this says so much about them and their care for others. What a loss for the royal family

      • Lorelei says:

        @Christine, this is my favorite, too! There is not a single color that she doesn’t glow in; it’s incredible. There’s also a long-sleeved version of Meghan’s shirt (the long-sleeved one is called the “Lili” btw!), which I love, but unfortunately they’re both $700+, so yeah that’s not happening. I’m sure there are less expensive alternatives, but I just love hers so much 😭

        (Although if anyone here wants to RepliMeghan, apparently if you use the code “CHERISH” at Khaite.com, it takes $100 off your order, good for the next 14 days.)

      • Christine says:

        I am with you, Lorelei, not in my budget, but I LOVE that Meghan is bringing attention to companies that we have never heard of, and they have codes at the ready. Of course they do, they would be idiots if they didn’t.

      • Chaine says:

        @Meg I agree with you. The top and pants are great as separate pieces but together they make her look oddly wide. I would have loved this bodysuit with the boyfriend jeans she wore earlier.

      • goofpuff says:

        @Meg and @Chaine

        What’s wrong with looking boxy?

      • cubed says:

        1 million amens @ goofpuff. I’ve been trying to figure out all day what’s wrong with boxy. She’s healthy and comfortable and rocking it. Boxy looks good to me.

    • Petra says:

      @C-Shell, Tears of joy for me too. The Duchess’s speech and introduction of Prince Harry were off the chart.
      Let it be known, Duchess Meghan said “This is service. This is dedication. And this is the Invictus family.” Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan mutually respect each other, when one shines so do the other. Their lights are shining bright

      • nutella toast says:

        “This is service”….Yes, yes it is.

        Taking tours on the backs of Commonwealth Countries is not.
        Using money from stolen lands and colonisation to pay for your son’s settlements is not.
        Wearing medals for…I don’t know….breathing (?) is not.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Those were very specific and well-chosen words. I can only aspire to be such a good public speaker.

    • sunny says:

      Love the looks here but what stands out is the love, friendship, pride, and respect they have for one another. I cannot fathom what they endured to get here but they are THRIVING. I cannot believe I am so happy for strangers.

      • Christine says:

        Word. I am THRILLED for both of them, and we get to watch their happiness, so win-win.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      @ C-Shell, truly a very excellent post. A plus plus plus. You covered it all. Watching the video I teared up. You can feel the sincerity and emotions. The truth of their feelings for the athletes and each other. On the otherhand, I love this outfit and recognize my own jealous feelings and appreciation for how fricking well she wears it. Madame Duchess has great shoulders and carriage.

      My goodness, the depth of their feelings for the IG and each other had me hearing…..
      I feel it in my fingers
      I feel it in my toes
      Love that’s all around me
      And so the feeling grows

    • SIde Eye says:

      I completely agree with you C-Shell this is one of my favorite looks! I absolutely love when she wears her hair like this. Also, no one rocks trousers like her. Her legs go on forever! They are so lovely, so sweet together, and I’m so proud of them. This is so moving. I sort of melted when he said: “thank you my love.” What a way to start this beautiful Sunday.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      I love the look too. Basically, want the whole ensemb!

  3. Amy Bee says:

    They both look great. Their emotional speeches tell me that they’ve been through hell these last 5 years. I’m glad they’ve been able to come out on the other side.

  4. Lorelei says:

    Meghan looks *ridiculously* beautiful!

    Also, I kept meaning to mention here on CB that I’d just recently learned there was a designer called “Khaite” and that a lot of their stuff looks like pieces that our hateful little Khate would wear (:

    Anyway, forget her— Meghan looks gorgeous, and that’s what’s important

    • vs says:

      I 100% agree…..Meghan’s beauty is just wow!!! she is stunning, really stunning but she is also smart, thoughtful, eloquent, etc….

      • Lorelei says:

        Eloquent, definitely! She is *such* an excellent speaker. Her speeches are always on point, no matter what the setting

    • C-Shell says:

      Re: “Khaite” — yes, we are all on that same page! Since I generally refer to The Rictus Grin as “Khate” it really cracks me up.

  5. KBeth says:

    She always looks lovely. They genuinely like each other, I think this concept is foreign within the royal family.

    • Jaded says:

      KBeth – I came here to say the exact same thing. As well as being in love, they LIKE each other, they’re best friends, and that is SO important for a relationship to be successful. The concept isn’t just restricted to the dysfunctional BRF, I see/know many couples who don’t seem to *like* each other very much. I love Mr. Jaded, but the real glue in the relationship is we really like each other and always have.

      • Lorelei says:

        I honestly wonder if they — both the family members and the courtiers— realize how badly they fcked up by driving these two out when they see things like this, or if they’re too blinded by their racist hatred to see past it, and actually see what enormous, irreplaceable assets H&M both were.

        (Not that they’d ever *admit* it, but I’m curious to know if they even think it.)

      • Christine says:

        ME TOO, Lorelei. They will never say it out loud, but surely they are at least honest enough in their own minds to admit it.

    • Sofia says:

      Can’t remember who said this first but Harry loves Meghan the way Windsor men love their mistresses.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Sofia – ouch. It’s true though LOL.

        @Lorelei – yeah, I think some involved in the Firm know what they lost. But I don’t think the ones who matter fully get it.

  6. Liz version 700 says:

    They are so amazing. I alternate between getting teary eyed and cheering. Those pants are fabulous. I am loving the coverage! The entire event is beautiful!

    • Colby says:

      William and Kate could literally never.

      • Yup, Me says:

        Because Harry and Meghan do the work first and then their appearance is to help shine a spotlight on that work. It’s not smoke and mirrors in replacement of actual work.

        Could you imaging Harry or Meghan arriving at an event obviously unprepared and unfamiliar with their subject? THEY would never.

  7. Tessa says:

    They are fantastic.

  8. CoffeeChamp says:

    Just absolute perfection.

  9. Alexandria says:

    I’m so happy the warriors got their Invictus Games this year. May it go smoothly and be bigger and better every year. Diana must be so proud…

    Onward Invictus. Onward Harry and Meghan.

  10. Patricia says:

    I love all the pics,but them kissing just made me so happy.That a real marriage,not the distance a certain other couple have.

    • Chaine says:

      Right?! They love each other, like each other, genuinely have fun together and want to make each other shine.

  11. Liz version 700 says:

    When Harry talked about what Archie wants to be when he grows up…can you imagine how novel it must be for him to know his children can choose whatever path they want. And Harry making sure to tell them most of all their morals matter. 🥲

  12. Beverley says:

    The Duchess is flawless! Her skin, her style, her dazzling smile! And she and Harry seem more in love than ever.

  13. Red Weather Tiger says:

    It’s RIDICULOUS how much I love them and want only good things for them. Their speeches were both excellent. They are Killing. It. And I’m here for every moment of their smashing success.

    • Islandgirl says:

      Same here RWT. I am feeling so proud of them and how this event is unfolding…wishing then continued success. This outfit is my favourite so far!
      Thanks Kaiser ..really appreciate.

  14. Original penguin says:

    She looks fabulous here, the neckline is perfect for her. The jewellery is spot on and I love how she’s done her hair

  15. Sofia says:

    Love this look. What a great twist on evening wear. The top half looks like the top of a grown yet you see the trousers which could be used in any (professional) setting. It works as the opening evening event to the games but also a professional outfit in general.

    Oh and absolutely loved it when Harry called Meghan “my love” and I melted when I saw the pics of them sharing a kiss. I know I shouldn’t be getting emotional over a couple that doesn’t even know I exist but I can’t help it.

    • booboocita says:

      That “my love” melted me, too! And now I’m looking forward to Bulliam and Khate’s next public appearance, at which he’ll mutter “thanks, pookie” or somesuch to Khate, and she’ll try hard not to gag.

    • C-Shell says:

      I couldn’t agree more with your entire comment! 🥲

  16. Cessily says:

    So far I have loved her choices for every appearance. She just looks fabulous.

    Watched the opening ceremony it was so beautiful, it needed a tissue warning I’m still teary eyed.

  17. OG Bella says:

    “Thank you my love”

    That is EVERYTHING.

  18. Watson says:

    I like the top ruched portion of the body suit, but hate how it wrinkles and bags underneath. This with the pants makes her body look boxier than it really is.

    Loved her white oversized suit and her tweed jacket/jeans/Chanel flats way more than this outfit.

    She is such a fantastic speaker though. This whole event is making Will and Kate look like IDIOTS especially when everyone is comparing their Land Rover imperialism tour photos with Harry and Meghan’s with the kids. Lolololo. I am
    here for this!!!!!!

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ LOL, you’re the second poster talking about the outfit making Meg look ‘boxy.’ First of all, Meghan has always been short-waisted. Second, she’s had three pregnancies in three years (two that came full term). Her body has been through a lot of changes, and it isn’t the same midsection she had in her 20s and early 30s. I love how she understands what looks good on her body, and how she isn’t fazed whatsoever by how pregnancy has changed her figure.

      Meghan has seemingly embraced everything fully, and allowed her body to naturally take its course. She’s not as heavy around the midsection as she was in November when she wore that gorgeous red dress that caressed her sexy curves. But she’s not as thin as she used to be either. I’m sure yoga, other exercise, meditation, taking care of her babies, and just being a good person and eating well keeps Meghan fit and happy. It’s such a bonus that she knows how to rock what she wears with such casual chic! She looks content, and her light shines from within.

      • Watson says:

        No where did I say that her body had to be the same as it was pre-archie, or that she had to be pin-thin to pull that outfit off. What I did say was that the top was unflattering, and made her look boxier than she was. I stand by that, because her *other* outfits made her look proportionate and GOOD.

      • Ines says:

        @aftershocks, chill. Watson doesn’t like the outfit and prefers the other two looks she wore. No need for a dissertation here, it is simply a matter of opinion.

      • Watson says:

        @Ines thank you for understanding.

      • minx says:

        Fashion is discussed on this site, no matter who is wearing it.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Oh, LOL guys. Meghan is short-waisted and she’s had three pregnancies. This is her shape now, and she embraces it, and as usual, with great style and panache!

        Meghan looks fine to me, and surely fine to Harry too. 😉 It’s not discussing fashion to suggest that Meg’s choices are making her look ‘boxy.’ She simply doesn’t have the same slim figure in her mid-section, and she’s never had a well-defined waist, because she’s short-waisted.

        Your preferences for Meghan, are just that, yours. Meg will do Meg’s Jam, so we may as well all chill in respect to Meghan’s personal styling and fashion instincts.

      • aftershocks says:

        As far as some posters not liking the top Meghan is wearing, I personally love the top. And so do many other posters in this thread. It seems to be a purposeful choice by Meghan, as evidenced by this tweet:

        Everyone has their likes and dislikes when it comes to sartorial matters. But trying to say this top isn’t right because of a particular figure flaw, is subject to debate. I don’t think Meghan is at all fixated upon being perfect anyway. She just has a chic, casual style and elegance that’s all her own. Her choices don’t and won’t please everyone.

        I don’t always like some of Meg’s styling choices, especially not for me and my figure. But I’m definitely inspired by her unique sense of style, and by the way she’s usually able to pull off everything she chooses to wear.

        LOL, if some people didn’t like the gorgeous cream-colored top Meg wore yesterday eve, they are certainly NOT gonna like today’s ‘boxy-looking’ white mini dress with the embroidered bodice!

  19. Athena says:

    I shed a tear when they gave Harry a standing ovation. Those soldiers have been through somethings and they understand that Harry has been through somethings.
    I’m happy for them that it’s going well. We all knew this would be a success without the British media’s support, maybe now the RR will finally understand that they cannot control Harry’s destiny.

    • Babz says:

      I was immediately taken back to their final appearance at the military tribute in London on their farewell tour. When they arrived, and then when they left, the prolonged standing ovation made Harry so emotional. He loves his military family, and they absolutely adore him. They will always have his six, as he will theirs. This entire weekend so far has been pitch perfect, and you don’t achieve something like that without being fully invested in what you’re doing. The BRF could never come close, and, deep down, they know it.

  20. Jasper says:

    Dammit, why are they getting me all weepy here? What’s that statement teachers always use “I hope they move from strength to strength”? Is that it? Well, I honestly wish the same for them – may they keep moving from strength to strength because honestly, when they do, everyone benefits. Every community they serve benefits.
    I am so happy for them!

  21. L4Frimaire says:

    It was really touching to see how emotional their speeches were. Would have loved to be in the room. I want to check out some of the competitions so where is a US livestream? I love what Meghan is wearing, it’s a bit unexpected. I thought she’d wear a dress but the fit of those pants is fire. I like the bodysuit as well. They just looked so good together and so happy to see how well the games have come together after a two year delay and everything that’s been going on.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ I don’t think there is a U.S. livestream available. You need VPN and figuring out registering for BBC IPlayer in order to see live coverage. Otherwise, check for video clips on Twitter, etc. Obviously, Netflix will eventually drop a documentary that covers this fifth edition of the Invictus Games, in the Hague.

      • Shawna says:

        Maybe this is what Harry and his team need to start thinking about for the next Invictus Games: setting up international streaming.

  22. MsIam says:

    Wow, I’m speechless! From the car rides with the kids to this speech tonight and then the kiss? I’m just done. Harry and Meghan know how to bring it for sure. And the professionalism displayed putting together this event is amazing. Kudos to them! Love it!

  23. Isabella says:

    The black pants and accessories are stellar, but the white bodysuit chops off Meghan’s body and makes her look high-waisted. That same top looks great on camera from the waist up, because it frames Meghan’s beautiful face and shoulders .If that was the intention, mission accomplished. Would be perfect on Zoom.

    I’m happy to see Harry and Meghan look strong and healthy. And, now, parents of two with a home in the sun in the U.S., where they fit in beautifully.

    UK seems to be the only place where they face hostility. What’s not to like?

    • SAS says:

      As someone with the same shape as Meghan (short waisted, straight up and down at the waist) sometimes you just have to say fuck it, I’m wearing something that fits me beautifully, if people get mad that it doesn’t give the illusion of a waist that I don’t have, that’s their problem.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Right @SAS, and thanks for weighing in. Meghan has always been short-waisted with long legs. But she knows how to dress for her body, and she mostly gets it right for every occasion and for her personal style and taste. Some of her choices I like better than others, but I’m not as astute about fine points of fashion. I can just tell that she understands clothes and she knows how to dress well.

        Her midsection has also changed due to her pregnancies. She fully embraces her body’s changes. She’s not fussed about it. She’s on trend, but with her own casual chic style, exuding class and elegance.

        Both M&H have a laid-back approach to dressing. But Meghan has polished Harry’s grooming, and upped his sartorial style, so he looks less scruffy than he did pre-Meghan. Anyway, they are both sexy, glamorous, and charismatic.

      • one of the marys says:

        @ Sas this made me lol, I love the idea of Meghan in front of a mirror saying ‘fuck it I’m wearing this’ 😆😆

        I just love how healthy she looks. Women in the public eye get such unkind scrutiny.

        Thanks for all the Saturday posts

    • Watson says:

      My sentiments exactly. The off the shoulder suits her cause she does have gorgeous features (shoulders, neck, face) and it highlights them all. However, the way this cuts her off at the waist? HATE IT. The top would have been salvageable if she had added more volume to her lower body like an Aline skirt. Usually I’d suggest a belt, but I think it’d be too distracting with the pleats of the shoulder area.

  24. MangoAngelesque says:

    Between the earlier buttons and now KHate Khaite white (not primrose yellow), are we SURE there’s no sartorial trolling at all? Like, not enough to be blatant or mean, but enough to be a nudge? I’m loving it, and the best part is that she looks amazing in all of it.

    H&M are detail-oriented to a fault, no way would those little things have gone unnoticed…

    • Nic919 says:

      As much as it’s funny that the designer is named Khaite, I don’t think Meghan would be aware of the use of Khate unless someone from Archwell is scrolling all the blogs and comments that reference them. Even here it’s a name used in the comments but not by Kaiser.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ 🤣🤣😂 I too did a double take when I saw the designer name, Khaite. LOL! And the buttons too! Ha ha! Maybe it’s a slight nudge, but if so, you’re right that it’s not blatant. Perhaps it’s coincidental. Or, just a classy way of referencing awareness of Keen’s blatant co-splaying. Meghan is good and kind, and subtle, but also purposeful.

  25. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I love her pants! They look great and they absolutely have the hearts of servants.

  26. zinjazin says:

    When you love

  27. Mrs. Smith says:

    I can’t watch one video about Invictus without crying, even the fun Aussie one made me tear up! Dammit! H&M complement each other so well, both of them deserve this happiness and success. Can you even imagine W referencing K as “my love.” ???

  28. Carrie says:

    They are both simply amazing.
    Love all the buttons and wearing Khaite. You don’t WSF Meghan and get away with it. 😂

  29. candy says:

    Omg they are SO cute.

  30. cassandra says:

    The glow her skin has is insane! I know it will never happen, but I would love to know her skincare routine. Though, looking at Doria, I’m sure most of it comes naturally.

    • Normades says:

      I preferred the white suit because it was more fashionable but I like this body con top because she doesn’t have a “small” waist and isn’t hiding it. She looks beautiful.

      • Babz says:

        She’s simply stunning. I figured that carrying two babies simply spread her rib cage and her hips; that’s not a change to be ashamed of, and she obviously isn’t. When she was pregnant, I was always astounded where she fit those babies in, because she’s so tiny. It looked like they were laying sideways, and wrapped around her, like they were hugging her. Three pregnancies in the same amount of years may have changed her figure a bit, but she’s still one of the most staggeringly beautiful women ever. It’s the glow of love and happiness and living an authentic life that surrounds her, and that can’t be duplicated. She and Harry have been spectacular this weekend!

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ 1,000 percent @Babz, and thank you! Well said!

    • aftershocks says:

      Check the Internet for past articles where Meghan discusses her beauty and skincare routine. There are a number of YouTube videos of Meghan related to fashion & beauty. Also, her Tig blog is a great resource, if you try the Wayback Machine to retrieve, or look for some retrieved features archived on Meghan-centric sites.

      There’s a book too that I think was well written, Meghan: The Life and Style of a Modern Royal, by Caroline Jones (2019). There’s a whole chapter on Meghan’s hair and skincare routine, with pictures and products listed.

  31. Normades says:

    Much preferred the white suit but they are so precious together. You can’t fake this emotion. The people there feel it

  32. Normades says:

    She is a true princess

  33. Fig says:

    I love this look except for the hem. It’s just too long and makes me paranoid about tripping and falling over

    • Normades says:

      The difference between the 2 couples couldn’t be any wider. One couple goes on a tone deaf fail tour all organized by incompetent others where they can’t even fake that people are excited to see them. The other couple goes to an international event that one of them founded and are adored. The BM really lost their only hope.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ Ha ha, I like Meghan’s look, but I get that how she carries herself so gracefully and with such erect posture is beyond many of us humans. I certainly would never be able to pull off walking in such high heels.

      However, she’s wearing well-made expensive heels, and she surely puts in all the work ensuring she prepares her feet, calves, and legs for walking in those heels, even with long pants. She likely changes to flats as soon as she can when these public events are over. Being introduced to yoga by her mother, at the age of 7, was a huge asset for Meghan (who said she appreciated it more as she got older).

  34. Nancy says:

    I am also very interested in her earrings! Everyone was positively radiant and spoke from the heart. Fantastic all of the way around.

  35. Normades says:

    That ´kiss and point’ Harry gives the crowd kills me. They all stopped cheering and listened. Amazing

  36. Talia says:

    Also H&M do the reading. There’s a post on twitter from a member of the Ukranian team (I think) saying they knew the back story of every person on the team when they met with them

    • Christine says:

      Stop. I am clearly going to be crying for the next week.

      That’s not in the least bit surprising that Harry and Meghan did their homework before showing up. They did the same thing for the Intrepid Museum Gala last November. (So glad there was opportunity in U.S. for Harry to share with military community around Veterans/ Remembrance Day so we didn’t have to hear about his vicious family firm disrespecting his wreath.)

    The Royal Family’s twitter site has Still not sent out a “good luck” to the GB Invictus Team.

  38. Thelma says:

    This was great. Meghan looks fantastic and appropriate and her intro was fabulous. So genuine and spoken from the heart. And loved the standing ovation for Harry and the “my love”. Swoon. They are winning effortlessly. In 20 years I don’t think I’ve heard Kate and Prince William speak warmly and affectionately of each other.

  39. swirlmamad says:

    My heart has been so warmed since they started the IG events yesterday. We KNEW they would bring it, but the games have been and will continue to be a raging success. And they both look so well, happy, healthy, and LOVED. They are goals in every single way and I love all of this so much for them.

  40. Athena says:

    There’s a picture of Princess Diana wearing a gown with a similar top, and the caption next to the picture of Diana says “She is free of restrictions,certainly you can see that”. Same can be said of Meghan.

  41. Teddy says:

    Harry created the Invictus Games, all heart and soul and profound meaning. And William came up with the Earthshot Prize, an empty and performative gesture.

    • L4Frimaire says:

      What I find interesting is that neither of the Cambridges set up any of their own initiatives until Meghan came into the family. The only thing was with Harry and that was only the Heads Together. They’re way behind the curve. The energy and enthusiasm of tripe first Invictus since the pandemic, after a two year delay and the Sussexes leaving the BRF, really speaks to their hard work and vision and hope it continues to be a huge success and inspiration.

      • Nic919 says:

        They attached themselves to Heads Together after Harry had done an event for mental health for veterans. And according to their PR kate came up with the name Heads Together. But ever since H and M left there has been nothing done by the other two for Heads Together. They expected to ride on Harry’s coattails for this.

  42. NemesisPuff says:

    What I’ve always liked about Meghan is that her interest in fashion has never been limited by her body changes, so her style has always shone through. Even at her publicly tiniest (Suits?) she wasn’t dressing in the smallest size she could fit into just because she could. Her style has remained consistent (and aged with her). Through pregnancies, post pregnancies, galas, tours, down time, she’s always known how to dress for her body.

    This put Kate’s fashion in even starker contrast, where it was clear that she had no clue how to dress herself, only that it would be “easier” if she was wafer thin. It’s a sad mindset to never have grown out of. Kate’s clearly also naturally slim, but she hasn’t learned that thin =/= style. And you can tell she holds that against Meghan, like “I’m thinner! Why are you more liked?” because she’s been taught that how you get the approval of critics/men is to not have an ounce of fat on you to criticise in the first place.

    Meghan’s so refreshing because she dresses for herself! And she knows how to show off the features she WANTS to show off. She gets that it’s about the overall look, not the individual pieces or features being shown off that create your style.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Meghan is even classy when (if?) she’s rightfully getting a dig back in. Part of me can’t imagine that “Khaite” bodysuit wasn’t recognized/mentioned by someone…..but I am SO here for it. LMAO

    • kelleybelle says:

      Actually Kate isn’t naturally thin. She’s naturally “healthy weight” and muscular. It’s like she’s petrified to gain weight since her marriage. She could use at least 10 lbs. on her. What she is now isn’t natural.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ Exactly @NemesisPuff! Thanks for sharing your observations about Meghan’s unique approach to dressing her body!

  43. Over it says:

    First off as others have said, thank you for posting this on your daily off Kaiser. We really appreciate it.
    The love, respect and adoration these two have for each other is what I hope each one of my children find one day in themselves and their significant other. I feel like a proud mom of two people I don’t even know. These two are incredible to watch, separate and together. Together they are a forced to be reckoned with and this is why they had to go because the British monarchy couldn’t control or contain the excellence that is these two.
    I am almost feeling bad for baldy and mcbuttons because you know they know they can’t ever do this. They will fall flat.
    I heard Megs speaking and I think she said something to the Ukrainian team I’m their language but it was drowned out by the clapping.
    Harry you did so well. You choose an equal, smart. Clever, beautiful, compassionate wife as a partner.
    Meghan, you have a man that loves and worships the ground you walk on . He is handsome, smart ,compassionate and giving.
    Your children couldn’t ask for two better parents in you two.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Hear hear, @Over it! Agree with you completely and I feel exactly the same. I feel protective over two people I don’t even know, and absolutely joyful that they have found a true soulmate in each other and are overcoming all the obstacles put in their path by tackling them together. The only famous people I truly stan.

    • Babz says:

      She said, “Slava Ukraine,” Glory to Ukraine. What got me emotional was the perfect pronunciation with which she said it. Even such a tiny phrase, and she made sure to say it correctly. That’s our Duchess, on the mark and perfect, down to the tiniest detail.

  44. North of Boston says:

    This is exactly who Harry and Meghan have been for years.

    This is what it looks like when nobody’s ruling over them, insisting they be half of themselves, that they be less.

    “This little light of mine … I’m going to let it shine!” indeed! 🙂

    Remember that song at their wedding:


  45. Geebeth says:

    She looks gorgeous

  46. Star says:

    Wow this top is an EXACT replica of Di in the Mario Testino photographs

    • SAS says:

      Omg you’re right! I always think of this as more of a 50s style than going to Diana but wow is this a nicer homage than the birthday glamour shoot!

  47. Spiffypaws says:

    Beautiful couple. So glad they got away from that toxic family. The commoner rescued the prince!

  48. Carrotface says:

    I’m not sure I’m counting properly (I’m just going based on what I’ve seen here and on Scobie’s twitter)… but it strikes me that M & H seem to have done more events in these first two days of Invictus than egghead and airhead did in their entire Caribbean tour! So not only are they very gifted at interacting with people, so their events are more meaningful, they’re managing to do quite a lot of events as well. The BRF with their outdated hierarchical nonsense really messed up by pushing them away.

    • Christine says:

      Yeah, it has to burn for the host countries to have to pay for Cannot and Willnot’s vacation while they are either offensive or just not working at all. Meanwhile, the Montecito royals bring money TO the host country of Invictus Games, notwithstanding the incredible spotlight they are shining on wounded veterans.

  49. Joy says:

    I cannot wait for the British news outlets to say that H and M are directly attacking Cain and Unable by declaring their actual work as service. HOW dare they! LOL. The BRF were handed the greatest diplomatic gift of all time and they bungled it just like everything else.

  50. Badrockandroll says:

    All I have to say is that it takes a brave woman with a large bladder to wear back fly trousers with a bodysuit. And she probably doesn’t have to deal with long lineups to impossibly small stalls in public bathrooms. But I agree, those trousers are magnificent.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ LOL! Indeed, indeed! Thanks for pointing that out! Meghan is so boss in how she carries herself. Amazing. I didn’t realize those were back-fly trousers with a bodysuit. She must surely have taken care of powder room matters prior to donning that outfit! 😍

  51. JRenee says:

    Just lovely!

  52. Polo says:

    I have to say that I’m normally interested in fashion first but I was so moved by the opening ceremony that I’ve just been mush.
    I saw some of the competitors crying walking on the stage and just lost it!! This really means so much to them. Ugh 😭

    Then add in Meghan’s intro, the kiss, and Harry’s speech and I just felt so much love!!
    I came for Harry and Meghan but I’m also invested in these athletes.
    I feel so proud of Harry and what he’s created but also for both of them persevering above all the crap that has been thrown their way.

    I truly pray that they continue to be blessed!! That all their enemies especially William, the rota, RF, and BM would be exposed and their hate campaigns cease.
    Happy Easter y’all!

  53. Margo says:

    Will and Kate coming off a PR disaster when Harry and Meghan show up looking happy, relaxed, engaged, and modern. Oh, what could have been if only THE FIRM had managed things better and the FAMILY had behaved better.

  54. Carmen says:

    For a publication that hates them so much, the Daily Mail is giving them a sh*tload of space. And they always print tons of great photographs. What’s their point, unless to give their rabid readers another opportunity to vent? I don’t get it.

    • Princessk says:

      The Fail knows what it’s readers want…..lots of pictures of Meghan and Harry, and they make money from the click bait. But l can see that they have paid photographers a lot of money for those photos.

  55. Zen says:

    I have to say in response to the tabloids saying “William deigned to meet H&M when they visited the Queen” that I don’t think he even knew they were in the country nor was he invited. (It really bugs me when the tabloids take that approach as if its truth). Secondly did Kate & Will set a land speed record returning from their vacation in order to show the kids at Easter church service? Kaiser called that one, she knew they would pull out the kids once H&M got some positive press at the Games.

  56. lucy2 says:

    They are so good at this sort of thing. I’m glad they’re doing it on their own terms too, and you can tell they both truly care about this.
    I love her whole look her too.

  57. Terry+A says:

    Hmmm… I’m not liking this look as much, its not giving her any shape.
