The outrage over Prince Harry’s Dior suit was the best part of the coronation

One of my favorite things from coronation weekend was the collective Deranger freakout over Prince Harry’s lovely three-piece Dior suit, and Dior’s social media person making multiple posts about the suit. Keep in mind, I’ve wanted the Sussexes to have a brand ambassadorship for years now. I think they would do well with an ambassadorship with Dior, and I absolutely want Meghan to do a handbag ambassadorship, with Tod’s or Valentino or some high-end label. So I was already primed to enjoy the fact that Meghan and Harry are wearing high-end labels. It would not bother me at all if Meg and Harry are already doing some yet-to-be-announced sponsorship with Dior.

That’s what was bothering a lot of royalists this weekend – the idea that Harry might be getting paid to show up at the coronation in a Dior suit. To be fair, I don’t think he was being paid. I think if Dior had Harry under contract, they would just say that. It’s far more likely that Dior was simply proud to have dressed Harry for the Chubbly and they wanted to take credit for their work. But really, none of this is actually “about” Harry’s designer contacts. The same royalists who were crying and throwing tantrums about his Dior suit were crowing about how he’d been “banned” from wearing his military uniform. They wanted to punish him, to see him wear sackcloth and ashes, to look and be poor. But they can’t admit that, so they make everything about “why didn’t he wear a British label!??!”

Prince Harry’s Dior suit he wore for the Coronation could have been a rebellious move as he and Meghan Markle make a deal with the brand, experts claimed today. The Duke of Sussex looked smart in the bespoke three-piece suit designed by Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones especially for his appearance at Westminster Abbey.

But royal fashion expert and celebrity stylist Miranda Holder said Harry’s choice of a French brand showed he ‘did not get the fashion memo or was in a petulant mood’ as most other guests wore British labels, adding that his decision ‘spoke volumes’.

Brand and culture expert Nick Ede added that now the Sussexes are no longer working royals, they can ‘have an arrangement with one of the biggest fashion houses in the world’ and Dior would have ‘jumped at the chance’ to work with them.

Ms Holder told MailOnline: ‘Harry’s brief appearance at the Coronation was always going to be controversial, every second that he was under the watchful eye of the many cameras, every move he made would be ruthlessly scrutinised, and due to him not wearing any sort of ceremonial uniform, his style choices would be at the top of the list.’

She said most guests appeared to have ‘got the memo to support the best of British brands at such a uniquely patriotic occasion’. Ms Holder spoke of the ‘sea of exquisite British couture’ from the Alexander McQueen that ‘graced’ Kate Middleton and Charlotte, to the poppy red Emilia Wickstead coat worn by actress Emma Thompson which she decorated with her MBE.

But she continued: ‘It seemed however that Harry did not get the fashion memo – either that, or he was in a petulant mood. The Prince turned up looking smart if somewhat apprehensive in an immaculate Dior suit, a potentially rebellious move on his behalf. Harry would have been well-versed in the protocol of supporting domestic businesses, and the message doing so would convey. In true royal family style, Harry, like his late grandmother, is a true expert in visual representation, and his decision to wear a French designer to this historic occasion spoke volumes. The message was clearly, ‘I’m here, but I’m doing this my own way’, a firm assertion that his newfound independence was not going to change, that he would run alongside the royal pack rather than within it.’

[From The Daily Mail]

While Dior is a renowned French label, the current creative designer is Kim Jones, a British man. It’s a lot like Meghan choosing Givenchy for her wedding gown – really, she chose an English designer working for a French label. Anyway, I continue to enjoy how Harry had them gagged. They didn’t know why they were mad about or why, but they knew they were irate and incandescent with rage. He wore Dior! It’s French! Dior posted about it! Why didn’t he wear a British designer! Is he being paid!! I watched in real time as Tom & Lorenzo fought with those unhinged Derangers on Twitter. It was glorious.

    Just here to stare at the best prince looking fine, moisturized, and unbothered in his beautiful suit

    • Not a Subject says:

      Yup! Anyone with eyes could see that Harry was well and truly relaxed, jovial and back to his old charming charismatic self. The whole nation (and certainly family & press) knows that Harry wears his heart on his sleeve and is unable to hide true emotion from his face or body language. So this jovial, chill Harry was indeed how he really feels – he’s clean and clear. Got his truth out there. Walking in peace and future promise with his wife and children. He’s totally done and dusted with “the firm” – they know it and it scared the heck out of them.

      • acha says:

        I especially love the thought pieces about how they don’t have a reason to “lure him back” after this. Hilarious that they 100% know he won’t bother with their BS unless it’s life or death.

    • SarahLee says:

      Harry wears the hell out of a suit. Any designer would be lucky to dress him. Looking like a fine, ginger snack!

      • SugarHere says:

        Agreed. Harry and Lady Louise, who was so demure and quietly elegant in her purple ensemble, were the jewels of the party.

        They upstaged all the embalmed mummies of their family.

      • acha says:

        Wouldn’t it be fantastic if an American designer picked him up as a spokesmodel? Some iconically American house, like Tom Ford? 😀 The British biddies would implode

      • Feeshalori says:

        I loved how Louise looked, the best I’ve seen her. She looked so elegant and dressed appropriately for her age and the event. She is such a lovely young lady.

    • LB says:

      Yes, Harry himself (suit included) was the best part of the coronation. He was the man to behold in that church. A close second is Harry rushing off immediately to see his family & his son on his birthday. Third is Charles getting so pissed off that W&K were late to arrive.

      • acha says:

        I also enjoyed the pictures of Louis yawning his little head off. Same, kid, same. 😀

    • Debbie says:

      Ah, but it was such a “patriotic occasion” the writer above tells us. I mean, it was so patriotic that they got Lionel Ritchie and Katy Perry to perform. Nothing says English-born more than those two. Who are these royal pests fooling? Let’s face it, Harry looked good because he wasn’t wearing McQueen, etc. Deal with it.

      It just blows my mind that, in one breath, they would say we were all set to criticize him and he knew it. Then, in the next breath to say, why oh why didn’t he wear a suit by a British designer to “show support” for this country? Huh?

      • Christine says:

        You’ve nailed all of it. “Let’s tear our hair out and scream about what Harry was wearing, while we praise our “king’s” chubbly concert…full of people that aren’t remotely from our side of the pond.”

        When is the moment these people recognize they are backing the losing horse? I’m seriously asking, who is this resonating with?

    • Elfje99 says:

      Haters and BM are getting off of #GoodKingHarry who wore a stylish bespoke #Dior suit, how ever fail to mention that Kate wore Alexander McQueen, owned by Gucci-which is French.

  2. Harry looked great added bonus it made salty isle angry! Doesn’t Can’t wear a lot of not English brands. This is all the have and it’s just fabulous. Cry more.

    • Chloe says:

      I am genuinely curious about what brand suits william wears. I wouldn’t be surprised if he started wearing dior. Since he wants everything harry has.

  3. Flowerlake says:

    I got an even better part for you.

    A poll about who was our favourite royal during the coronation.
    Guess who is winning:

    It’s easy to vote. I think I know who you guys will vote for 😀
    It’s from the Express hahaha. Let’s see if they will make an article about this.

    • I saw this yesterday and was thinking the incandescent rage fits would begin.

    • SAS says:

      Ahahahaha, what a landslide! Can’t blame bots for that one either lol.

      • Mary Pester says:

        Exactly, the screams of rage and the smell of burning wiglets have now reached cornwall 😂😂🔥🔥🔥. Harry came, he looked “hot and handsome. He wore the suit, unlike the rest whose capes jewels and buttons wore them. Harry doesn’t need permission or approval from anyone in the UK. He’s gone, he’s free, he’s happy, so the UK can just suck it up buttercups

    • Becks1 says:


    • Blithe says:

      Yay! Lol. I’m happy to be of service.

      And it seems that just like service, a few other things — including acknowledging the beauty of grace under pressure— may also be universal.

    • Jazz Hands says:

      Love that they list her as “Kate”. The whole Catherine thing worked just about as well as the rehabbing of Camilla’s image.

      • Flowerlake says:

        They’re probably afraid people don’t know who ‘Catherine’ is 😀

    • Emme says:

      And voted! 62% for our Harry, and STREETS ahead of the rest! Whoo hoo 🎉🎊

    • Pinkosaurus says:

      Just voted and Harry’s at 63%!

    • Sarge says:

      Just voted he’s now 65%

    • Jaded says:

      Just voted — Harry’s at 66%, wayyyyy ahead of the rest!!

    • Shoegirl77 says:

      Just voted. He’s still at 66%. Closest is Bill with 10% 😉

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      I had to vote to see the results — Harry is currently at 68%. The funny thing is, royalists can’t even argue that having so many of the other family members “split the vote,” because even if you added up ALL other family members, the COMBINED total is still only HALF of Harry’s votes. LOL. I think even the most ardent royal supporters know what they’ve lost, and it kills them inside (hence the constant, over-the-top vitriol against the Sussexes).

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        I should have added, enjoy the poll results now while you can (and/or print it for your future amusement), because it’s only a matter of time before the royal family scrubs the internet of the results. Poll? What poll?

  4. Nubia says:

    This selective chose British is a joke, a Coronation that had stolen jewels from across the globe, American singers(Katy Perry couldn’t even bother to rewrite the 4th of July section in Fireworks song) and so many things not British.

    • Anne says:

      I saw a great response to GB News tweet keening about how ‘everything was British! And Harry had to go and wear Dior!)

      The response was *chef’s kiss*:

      “Charles was escorted by German Audis, by people carrying Swiss guns, he wore stolen Indian diamonds, in a carriage pulled by Canadian horses and you watched it sitting on a Swedish couch eating Chinese food on a Japanese TV.

      Pipe down.”

  5. Seraphina says:

    I agree with your assessment Kaiser. What is poetic justice is that these idiots would not allow him to wear his military uniform and BOTH times he comes out looking FINE and better then the clown outfits they had on. Live your best life – that is the best revenge for those who do not love or care for you.

    • Chloe says:

      That decision, and their argument for it, still doesn’t make sense. Anne’s husband was there in full military regalia.

      • MsDoe says:

        Because they just make up rules as they go along, with the intent of hurting or humiliating Harry and Meghan. It’s a set of rules the royals made up just for Harry because they are determined to bring him to heel. They could have accommodated Harry had they wanted to do so, as Prince Michael of Kent (and many others) had been accommodated, but they clearly wanted to punish and maim. The monarchy is just make believe, insubstantial and irrelevant. When their attempt to hurt work, when Harry and Meghan rise above it and succeed despite their efforts, they — the royals and their media friends — get angrier and angrier.

      • Bobsie says:

        Princess Anne’s husband is a retired active-duty Vice Admiral. Retired personnel may wear uniforms at ceremonies or official functions when the dignity of the occasion and good taste dictate.

        The poster below is misinformed. Harry could have worn his captain’s uniform. You are only allowed the rank you completed before you retired from service. What he is not allowed to wear are any of the honorary insignia that came with his royal status.

        Fwiw – a Captain’s rank is fairly common. First Lieutenants who have served six years are automatically promoted in rank. In fact all ranks are time-based and have nothing to do with where you served or whether you saw battle.

        Both of these cases are different from the ceremonial ranks of the royals. Those ranks and uniforms are for ceremonial purpose only.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      They “clarified” at Elizabeth’s funeral that it’s not “ok” to wear a military uniform as a combat veteran, but it IS ok to wear it as a recipient of a “courtesy” military title that the royal family gives to themselves. Yes, it’s stupid, but that’s the royal family for you.

  6. Smart&Messy says:

    That’s what thex have left to do. Pull out their hair, huff and puff and stomp their feet about H and M being hot commodities, charismatic and successful. And away.

  7. Rapunzel says:

    “I think if Dior had Harry under contract, they would just say that.”

    I think Dior would keep its mouth shut if asked by the Sussexes.

  8. Amie says:

    Yes, the whole reaction was super funny. I also loved how some derangers were like Dior is nothing, just another wannabe, low class designer.

    And also how they all pretended that Dior was the only fashion house who boasted about dressing someone at the Coronation.

    • Nubia says:

      EVEN Victoria Beckham was posted and they think a brand like Dior won’t.

  9. ThatsNotOkay says:

    You know brands were fighting to dress Harry. He, being the outcast unable to wear his military garb, had free rein to wear whatever else he wanted. And the brand gets the highest-profile publicity it could in a decade. Big win for Kim Jones and Dior.

    By continuing to punish Harry, they just end up elevating him even more. Will they never learn?

    *Narrator: Yes. They will never.

    • L84Tea says:

      Makes me wonder if they’re now regretting the ban on him wearing his uniform. 🙂

      • Laura D says:

        @L84Tea – Since the Dior tweet absolutely nothing has been printed about Harry’s humiliation because he wasn’t allowed to wear a uniform

        I burst out laughing when I saw the the tweet and read the comments by the derangers. These people get exactly what they want and they’re still not happy! 😆

      • swaz says:

        I think so, because if he was dressed in uniform he would just blend in with them. Now, he’s dressed in DIOR looking vogue, modern, fresh and vibrant 🤣🤣🤣 and made them all look old and dowdy 🙄😏

  10. Paulkid says:

    Harry didn’t wear a British label because he lives in America and can exercise free choice. I haven’t noticed any sniping over Chuck and Yuck appearing on American Idol, so it is obvious they are playing the Brit card to distract from the handsome appearance Harry had in Dior.

  11. Miranda says:

    Sure, Harry looked great. But if I were him, I would’ve turned up in one of those David August suits where the “pinstripes” are actually text. The lyrics to the Sex Pistols “God Save the Queen” (altered to “King”, of course), would’ve been nice.

  12. equality says:

    So you invite guests who represent other countries and expect them to support yours in how they dress?

  13. Becks1 says:

    For me, it was hilarious bc Harry walked up and I thought, wow he looks a lot better than he normally does in a morning suit (and I think he usually looks pretty good in one.) then i realized it was custom dior and I thought “oh, that’s why” LOL. A well made suit like that is a thing of beauty.

    I think the meltdown is for a couple of reasons:

    1) In general, at the coronation, Harry did not look embarrassed, or humiliated, or uncomfortable. He walked in there confidently and seemed to be the only one enjoying himself. so the RRs have to cling to something, anything, to make his appearance a negative.

    2) The RRs have been insisting for years that no one was going to want to touch H&M with a 10 foot pole. Everytime something else happens that proves them wrong, from the Netflix deal to Spotify to WME to a custom Dior suit – they have another breakdown because they don’t understand how H&M are not personas non grata since the RRs have said they should be.

    3) Harry looked much better in that custom Dior suit than we’ve pretty much ever seen William look in a morning suit. I don’t think we can underestimate this point, lol.

    Anyway, suck it haters, lol.

    • Jk says:

      Harry looks every inch a man whose conscience is clear because he’s been telling the truth all along. He has this lightness about him whereas Will, Kate, Charles and Camilla know they are guilty of spreading all those lies, and they can’t even look at him.

    • Mel says:

      He was the happiest person in the room. He looked good and he knew it and he also knew that once it was over he was going home. He didn’t have to put up with petty jerk behavior from his brother and he wasn’t obliged to smile in the face of Queen Jump Off. He was there for the giggles. I loved that .

    • Beverley says:

      Absolutely agree, Becks1. William has never looked as good as Harry looked in that custom Dior, not in any of his suits. Or in any other outfit for that matter. Never.

      It really sucks to be Willy.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      Agreed. And also to mention how Harry and Meghan appear when they are together: loved up, happy, confident, classy, gorgeous couple. William will never have THAT with his own wife. My gut tells me he is extremely jealous, and it could partly explain his incandescent rage that Harry “bested” him in marriage, and the desperation to embiggen Kate.

  14. Jais says:

    How do we know that Kate wore McQueen? Assuming KP informed the media. So cue the outrage right? Meanwhile, Harry’s Dior cost the uk nothing.

    • First comment says:

      Not only that but there are suspicions that there were 2 dresses not one made by McQueen judging from the photos..where’s the outrage for this?

    • Jan says:

      McQueen is owned by a French Company, so much for British.

  15. Haylie says:

    Coronation Quiche has entered the chat.

  16. Harper says:

    According to Spare, the only domestic business that Harry supported in his princely life was TKMaxx. And even that place has American origins.

    • A says:

      Now that Meghan has representation, I really, REALLY need Harry to become a brand ambassador for the following:

      – IKEA
      – TKMaxx

      And given the laundry situation he wrote about in the book (how he had to dry his underwear on the heater while watching Friends), I will also need:

      – a washer/dryer brand to reach out and partner with him or w/e
      – a Friends reunion with at LEAST Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry and Harry

      Come on universe, make these happen!!!! Or at least have Harry tell us WHICH IKEA lamp he bought, and which sofa he got on discount from!!!!!!! Please!!!!

      • Ameerah M says:

        Never TKMaxx who flat out lied on him when his book came out.

      • MrsH says:

        I would love to see him rock some Ralph Lauren – classic American style. Also, I think he would look great in Tom Ford.

  17. Brassy Rebel says:

    I’m confused. Harry’s magnificent morning suit was in fact designed by a British person, but, because it came from the house of Dior, Harry’s patriotism is questionable? Mais c’est fou!

  18. Chantal says:

    Haha these people are working overtime at the whole create your own reality business. No, Harry did not look “somewhat apprehensive” in any way, shape, or form. The hanger looked more stressed than Harry did. And once again Harry managed to outshine his relatives and look handsome, jovial and unbothered while doing it. So keep panicking…

  19. Blithe says:

    Lol: For once, I actually agree with the DM. I agree with, and enthusiastically support the “message”.

  20. Amy Bee says:

    I’m loving this royalist freak out. I think the real reason for this outrage is Harry leaving right after the service.

  21. Mrs. Smith says:

    Anyone with eyes can see how good he looked. Personally, I’m thrilled H is modeling how properly tailored pants are supposed to fit. Saville Row (or whoever it is that dresses W), still hasn’t managed to do it. 🫎

    • Honeyplease says:

      At first I didn’t like the cut of the suit on Harry, although I thought he looked good. I now realize that it’s the shirt that’s driving me bonkers. The shirt with the lapels are the suit are giving me a freak-out.

  22. SussexWatcher says:

    Does anyone know how a brand ambassadorship for the Sussexes and Dior would be different from what’s happening now, with them wearing Dior clothes/bags? Would it be exclusivity for big events? Would the Sussexes do ads for them/get paid? I think Meghan has already worn Dior 4 (more?) times that I can think of – Jubbly, QEII funeral, to a military-related event, and in Morocco. So I’m just confused as to what would be different? TIA for any info.

    Regarding Harry and his Chubbly suit, he looked 🔥 and I love seeing the British media and royalist heads exploding. The level of petulance from those groups is hilarious and I live for their salty tears. You wanted the Sussexes gone and they left, so good luck with that pale, stale, uncharismatic group you’ve got left. It’s what you deserve!

    • Ameerah M says:

      An ambassadorship means they get paid and are under contract. It would mean ad campaigns, etc. Right now they are probably receiving some free items but also paying for some.

      • SussexWatcher says:

        Got it. Thanks so much, Ameerah M!

        If that’s the case, I can’t see the Sussexes doing an official ambassadorship because I can’t see them doing ads. If they could work it out to just be exclusivity for big events and Dior publicizing it after the fact (like they already have done) then I could see it. I somehow just really can’t imagine Harry and Meghan doing ads. But I’m usually wrong lol, so they probably will.

      • Pinkosaurus says:

        I could see Harry doing an ambassadorship and ads with a clothing company if it supported his charities, for example, appearing in suits with Invictus athletes who also get free custom clothing. Remember Meghan’s project with Smart Works?

      • Ameerah M says:

        I think it would be great. For Meghan especially. But I also just want to see Meghan in Dior ads.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        I think Harry’s presence at the Clowning was the ad. His picture is plastered everywhere, and everyone knows he’s wearing Dior. Do you need more advertising than that?

      • Renae says:

        The ‘ad’ is the pic of him with the hanger that says DIOR.

  23. ChillinginDC says:

    I still love that one Black gentlemen who was doing the head nod when Harry strolled in. From his shoes (they were fantastic) to that suit he looked like a million dollars. I think honestly the RR are ticked because everyone else looked ghastly that day. Which is why they all should have worn suits and maybe a fancy dress. They working Royals looked like cartoon characters.

    I am still laughing at people getting on Dior’s Instagram saying they will boycott. Sure. Okay.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yes, as if these wing nuts shop at Dior every day as they do Walmart. They wanted to see him in a burlap bag suit covered in ashes. And you know that gentleman was saying approving, ”Uh, huh” under his breath when he saw Harry swagger in.

  24. Alexandria says:

    They genuinely mad that H dressed well for a conation. You can’t make this stuff up.

  25. Amy T says:

    File under: Living well really is the best revenge, especially when you’re not doing it for anyone else.

  26. L4Frimaire says:

    I thought Harry looked amazing in his suit.I totally forgot about the whole uniform thing, as did a lot of other people. They wanted to once again use the uniform to embarrass him, but he looked so handsome and confident. Also, the senior royals looked so theatrical in their ceremonial garb, and seeing Andrew in those robes made it ridiculous and showed the blatant hypocrisy. The reaction is over the top, unhinged and hilarious. I hope he wears some of their more innovative looks to really send them over the edge. He looked really good, the Dior suit was incredibly well made and stylish, and he once again pulled focus just by being there.

  27. Normades says:

    Dior posted 3 times about the suit almost like they were doubling down, and the comments were lit. Tons of support but also deranged hate and my favorite comment, the famous “You just lost a customer!”. Yea right like you buy sooo much Dior.

    • BW says:

      “Just lost a customer” probably shops at Walmart or the British equivalent.

    • Becks1 says:

      I mean I’ve been boycotting Dior for years and years and they don’t seem to care LOL.

      (Boycotting = too rich for my wallet, hahahaha.)

    • tamsin says:

      Would Dior call the people who order their couture “customers?” Clients, perhaps.

      Harry wore couture Dior- quite a step up from TJ Maxx or whatever. The suit was exquisite and fit like a glove. Harry looked very fine. I do wish that he didn’t always wear his trousers too short, though. My only guess is that that’s how he likes them. That’s the only detail that wasn’t impeccable. And his shiny patent shoes! What’s he done with the pair with hole in the sole- the pair probably given by Pa, which he wrote about in Spare.

      • Lorelei says:

        William must be irate that Harry not only looked better in a suit than William ever has, but that he was forced to wear those ridiculously cartoonish robes on the same day. I love it.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Those robes look like striped hot air balloon material. Hot air being very apropos.

      • Normades says:

        I agree Tamsin. The upper cut was impeccable but they could have lengthened the pants by a couple of centimeters.

  28. The Old Chick says:

    Typical fail throwing in ‘apprehensive’ and ‘petulant’. Always painted in this way.

  29. Pam says:

    It’s probably merching, but I’m okay with this, as they need to pay for security somehow. Also, WTF? If they’re not going to let him wear his uniform or the royal robes, then what’s he supposed to do?

    • MsIam says:

      What’s he supposed to do? Pick up something from TKMaxx I suppose? And he’s no more merching than the rest of them. The first thing Daily Mail says about any of them is the designer name and the price.

  30. Laura says:

    He is so fine, my god.

  31. Visa Diva says:

    If you’re mad you know Harry wore Dior and you’re not mad you know Kate wore McQueen or Bruce Oldfeld gave about Camilla’s Coronation dress, you need to log off, go outside, and touch some grass for a reality check.

    • Christine says:

      This. All your “working royals” paid for their coronation clothes with your tax dollars.

  32. Athena says:

    Didn’t Harry also wear a Dior shirt when he was there for the trial?

  33. Vanessa says:

    All the royal reporters had all their sad Harry talking points ready and then Harry show up looking happy healthy dressed in Dior . That Trigger the royal reporter how dare Harry shows looking good in a designer suit so now they have to spin this into something bad because Harry didn’t wear British label . The royal reporter are desperately for storylines Harry and Meghan are done out their reach there nothing else for the royal family to do this was the last hoorah . So there desperate to make as much context as possible.

  34. j.ferber says:

    Now Will will have to be a brand representative for a French house of fashion, but he’d better make it English. Who would want to dress him anyway? Plus he gets all his clothes (such as they are) and especially his wife’s clothes for free. No one wants to look like Will or Kate Middleton. Now Rose is another story.

  35. Freddy says:

    Dior’s designer Kim Jones is British and last I checked Prince Harry is no longer a working royal and gets nothing from the UK taxpayer, so why does anyone think he’s obligated to wear a British brand? I can’t….

  36. Nicegirl says:

    Gorgeous, smart, unbothered.

  37. Beverley says:

    Harry bought that designer suit himself with money he earned. He didn’t stick the taxpayers with the bill. And that’s a claim none of the other “working” royals can make.

    So keep Prince Harry’s name outta your mouths – you pathetic, lame, piece of shite British “journalists”.

  38. Mary says:

    Harry is a traitor for wearing Dior but Kate “oozes glamour” (per the DM) in an Elie Saab outfit she wore to a garden party today and in the French house McQueen at the Coronation?! Make it make sense.

    I’m glad to hear that Tom & Lorenzo were fighting with derangers on Twitter. because I actually, for the first time ever, felt compelled to leave a comment on their site, in which I vigorously disagreed with some comments they made, where they stated that royals NEVER make statements or send messages with their clothing choices. They essentially stated that it is a myth that royals partake in symbolic dressing, and do not use their clothing to “say” what they verbally cannot. And I VIGOROUSLY disagreed.
    And also I like run on sentences.

      I read that comment differently. They were saying the RF don’t make private and subtle messages with their clothing – they make public and overt statements so that everyone will know and understand their status. Kate didn’t wear Diana’s earrings because she wanted to pay some kind of sentimental homage to Diana – she wore them to show that she’s the new Princess of Wales and the earrings are hers now.

    I suspect that it is personal for the fail newspaper. Dior rarely engages in their “play for pay” adverts. In the situations in the past when the fail have included their website as part of their horrible coverage of Meghan, Dior would remove the media’s link to their website.

    I remember looking for the Fail’s reaction to Harry’s initial appearance in said suit after the service was over.
    That suit was being hawked instantaneously.
    Maybe, just maybe Dior did its magic and PUFF…….
    Then on to the big whinge by the sycophants…

    Did anyone else take a look at the back of Harry’s suit. I LOVE that. Obviously, I can’t see everyones backs in the pics, but I think this different from the others.

    As I said above, having Harry wear a Dior at an event is all of the advertising Dior needs.

    • Well Wisher says:

      Yes. Excellent tailoring, reminded me of Meghan’s Louis Vuitton gown. Bespoke at its best.

  42. QuiteContrary says:

    Harry looked like he enjoyed wearing that gorgeous suit, which probably made Dior ecstatic. He looked fantastic.

    Harry IS a ginger snack. I love that description of him.

  44. j.ferber says:

    The Brits get their knickers in a twist because Harry wore a Dior suit, but they’re fine with their con-a-nation costing 150 million pounds? Okay then.

  45. Joanna says:

    Harry looks fine af! His style is so much better since he got w Meghan. He was always lovable but now he looks like a MAN!

  46. markhammom says:

    What I really want to know is….how long before we see Kate/Rose wear Meghan’s hikers?? I mean, it’s just a matter of time right?

    I was going to say the same lol – Katy Perry singing the words 4th of July to her Fireworks song in front of the BRF during the coronation concert was soo hilarious. My husband had to do a 2nd look when we were watching the clip on YouTube. He asked is this a British coronation or and American presidential inauguration(which was a more amazing performance). I love Nicole’s and Bocelli’s choice of songs but they’re written/composed/trademarked by Disney and Rodgers and Hammerstein. (As all American you can be).
    CC making an appearance in American idol was also the cheesiest thing ever. I mean shouldn’t they be talking to a British tv audience instead. With the exception of HM wedding, I’ve never seen this many US references in a very British event. And all the British tabloids/royalists can do is criticize Harry’s suit.
    You know how utterly ridiculous that sounds.. 😆

    Bruce Oldfield ( why dies he work with Cams?) posts on his Insta quite frequently about designs he has done for cams.

  49. sammi says:

    Daily Express apparently did another independent Poll on who was the most popular royal at the Coronation……….65% said Harry and th eothers polled under 10%.
    Did anyone know what happened to Bette Midler at the concert as seems it was a no show?

  50. eliza says:

    i think this confirms there’s a brand partnership btw the sussex and dior. most celebs have brand partnerships where they get clothes and wear it and allow the brands to say they dressed them. so this doesn’t surprise me.

  51. Sketchy says:

    The real problem is Harry looks good in that suit while everyone in those fussy robes looks completely unrelatable, and bizarre to the modern eye. We must make a point of why it’s wrong of Harry to be looking that stylish!
