Duchess Meghan steps out in NYC in a letterman jacket & a Altuzarra suit

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in New York right now. This is just a quick post, as it looks like it will take a bit longer to get photos from the Archewell Foundation Parents’ Summit, where Harry and Meghan appeared with the US Surgeon General and Carson Daly. Their first stop, before the summit, was to Brooklyn’s Marcy Lab School. Meghan wore a cute black ensemble topped with a letterman jacket given to her by UK students in March 2020. Then Meghan changed clothes into a white Altuzarra suit – wide-leg trousers and an off-the-shoulder blazer. It’s already sold out!

The Mail is already crying about how Meghan and Harry were moving around New York in a seven-vehicle convoy. Good. I’m glad they’re taking their security seriously and it sounds like they were prepared for the (British) media’s dangerous shenanigans this time.

I’m including video clips (via THR) and some social media photos below. We will have more coverage tomorrow, of course!

    The white suit 😍

  2. girl_ninja says:

    The off white suit is loevely and they both look healthy, happy and engaged in the matter at hand.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Yes! I will forever be jealous and have shoulder envy. Love the cream outfit and how beautifully she wears the off shoulder outfits. Gorgeous, intelligent, thoughtful, empathetic is Madame Duchess.

  3. Nic919 says:

    She looks amazing. The clips coming out are good too.
    Also interesting that Hollywood Reporter is at this event. Associated press is also reporting on it which means this goes to papers across canada and US.

    • Loreleii says:

      Good! They deserve to have coverage from legitimate outlets and not just the pathetic tabloids.

  4. Satish More says:

    She looks amazing. Absolutely amazing. She’s positively radiant. Love her in white & cream. Makeup is perfect. Great shoulders, too. Shoes are fantastic, same color family but not too matchy matchy with the rest of her outfit.
    Argh I am so jealous!!! 🙆🏾‍♀️

    Cue to Kate suddenly wearing some ill fitting, shoulder baring top, with equally ill fitting trousers to like, a senior citizens home or something. And being praised for it.

    • Rooo says:

      They’ve already “commissioned a study”


      K & W really don’t know how to have an original thought I guess

    • jane says:

      lets see how long psycho kate will copy the white suit ha ha ha!!

      • First comment says:

        She already did, today, as far as the ivory colour is concerned..she saw Meghan wearing white-ivory and she wore an ivory skirt and blouse…a monochromatic ensemble very close to Meghan’s suit

    • MrsCope says:

      I actually think she is stretching into terrain that Will’s wife can’t follow. It’s too far off the path. We know she copies Meghan, but their fan club (which is really a Meghan Hate Club) clings for dear life to the belief that she is stepping into womanhood with her own fashion sense 🤣. If she were to go off shoulder to a day event, or rock a letterman jacket EVER, it would be hard to deny. She will howy, go white and off shoulder ASAP for an evening event. Maybe when the Korean dignitaries visit next month?

  5. She looks lovely in that white suit!! Somebody must be exploding not being able to get it lol. Let’s see how long it takes for that someone to be seen in a letter jacket. Glad they are taking more precautions to stay safe!

    • bettyrose says:

      I would be terrified to attend a public event in a white suit. I realize she didn’t exactly take the subway and stop at a hotdog stand in that suit, but trust me that I could be chauffered in, only wearing the suit for a couple of hours with no food or drink involved, and there’d mysteriously still be coffee stains by now.

      • Loreleii says:

        @BettyRose, same. She can pull off *anything*. It’s incredible. I’m not quite sure she’s human at this point. The woman is incapable of taking a bad photo and she’s always glowing! If I didn’t love Meghan, I’d hate her so much out of sheer, unbridled jealousy.

        W&K are going to be seething when they see these photos. Absolutely raging. The Sussexes have ALREADY gotten more coverage than Bill’s entire trip to NYC!

    • TheFarmer'sWife says:

      The Duchess of Successful looked fabulous in both outfits. Meghan has an excellent speaking voice with great inflection and genuine warmth. What a great school to support and publicize.

    • Debbie says:

      I’m also very glad about the safety precautions too. And trust the D. Fail to be snide about it.

  6. Jais says:

    Love that she’s wearing that letterman jacket that was gifted to her. Wasn’t that her last official uk event? The way she brought it back out after 3 years. Love it. The white suit. Off the shoulder. She’s got some signature and iconic looks that she’s made her own. Her face. Her eyes. I’m sorry but she radiates beauty. Can’t wait to get into more of the details of the talk tomorrow.

    • Yes that was gifted to her on her last uk event by the Robert Clack school I think.

      • SURE says:

        I wonder if the letterman jacket is just a nice sentimental touch or whether it might indicate a similar collaboration with the RC school?

      • Kingston says:


        The jacket was given to her by the debating team at the RC school in 2020 when M visited on World Mental Health Day.

        I have a strong feeling that she touched bases with them on this day…..the senior students back then would be in college now but the younger students who wd be the senior students now, might still be there.

  7. Qzie says:

    Say what you will (looking at all the nasty little comments on the Hello Instagram post), you gotta give it to Meghan.

    She is an incredibly poised public speaker with a lot of charisma. And even though at first I was surprised by her choice of the off the shoulder look, she looks absolutely stunning in it–the updo and wide pants seal the deal. Beautiful.

    I can’t even believe that people comment and say that Harry and Meghan try to copy Will and Kate—they simple have got to be kidding.

    • Flower says:

      When I see lovely comments like the one above on this board (from posters whom I am guessing are US based) it occurs to me why there is some confusion as to why some Brits are just so nasty.

      In British (English) terms Meghan is what some would refer to as a ‘tall Poppy’. She literally stands out in all her beauty, intelligence, splendour, and success with the ‘IT’ factor to match. Add to the fact that Brits are notoriously miserable, self depreciating and view people who successfully sell themselves as being ‘full of themselves’ I always knew she was going to get attacked in this country. Then add the fact she is a black American woman and it’s a wrap for some fragile small Brit minds.

      Moving to the US was the best thing H&M ever did because there is a very vocal minority who were always going to piss into the well water no matter what they did. They were the new whipping boy and girl and Meghan did more of a service to community race relations by leaving and saying no thank you. Another reason the gammons hate her.

      They wanted to break her, so every time she shines it makes me so happy.

      Also the RR’s are very cunningly constantly linking Meghan to Kate, because try as they might Kate does not sell copy as well. Yes she will get the odd 200+ comments but that is not enough to drive ad revenue for publications which are essentially oligarch funded propaganda rags.

      Also wanted to add that I have seen linking Kate to Meghan strategy play out in work the workplace. A colleague in another dept (black female) was up for promotion but her direct line manager was not 100% supportive as he had his own pick (who was far less qualified, productive, engaged and less liked by the business heads). He knew that his little drinking buddy did not have a hope in hell so he started linking both employees in tandem in all communications, thereby signifying they were at the same level etc. It got so insane that when they did a re-jig of the team structure (for other reasons), they moved her under a different manager in a different geographic location so she could eventually have her promotion signed off.

      I feel like this is what they’re doing with Kate – they’re trying to equate Kate with Meghan as if to say look they’re the same, doing the same work etc and Kate is leaning into it by cosplaying Meghan as she knows it means she will get the front pages. Women (and especially black women) know this is the oldest trick in the book – we mention an idea in aboard meeting and someone else mentions it and takes the credit.

      • MaryContrary says:

        Can we maybe not try and smear all the British people? Like the majority of nastiness comes from the disgusting tabloids and then idiots on the internet. Most Brits do not have a negative opinion of her, and they don’t love Kate either.

      • Flower says:


        ” because there is a very vocal minority who were always going to piss into the well water no matter what they did”

        In any case as a black woman the ‘not all Brits’ argument doesn’t wash with me. The rush to populism, Brexit, the circulation figures for the DM etc all tell me that even if it isn’t all Brits there is often very little pushback and if that is the only thing you took from what I said then maybe we should just agree to disagree – thank you.

        This board literally calls the UK ‘salt island’ FFS !

      • Acha says:

        Love this comment, it explains the psyche of that subset of haters very well to me. Thanks, Flower!

      • Brassy Rebel says:

        Thanks for the sociology lesson on the British right wing, Flower. I often find myself puzzled by the strange happenings on “Salt Isle”!

      • bisynaptic says:

        Interesting perspective!

      • YOKOOHNO says:

        Thank you so much for posting Flower, I agree with everything you’ve said! And I think your “real world” colleague example is really pertinent to what’s happening with Meghan and Kate.

        Also I just want to say – as a white woman I don’t feel defensive reading this as I don’t see anything untrue. I have Brits in my family and British people really are generally self-deprecating. That’s not an insult, but when it’s combined with the (unfortunately many) Brits who are racist – I’m Canadian and we have lots too, it’s not just the UK – then it can become a powder keg of toxicity. I think a self-deprecating Brit who was not racist wouldn’t feel threatened by Meghan, just dazzled, it’s the combo that takes it up a notch, in my opinion.

        Hope this helps anyone who’s a little in their feelings about Flower’s comment, and hope that it’s okay for me to say this here. I felt uncomfortable that the first response was a “Not All” one, especially to such a good comment. (Also white women – we have to get better at working out our feelings on our own and not in Black women’s spaces.)

        Lastly – I love her outfits!! Love the jacket and the cream suit, just gorgeous.

      • Emme says:

        @MaryContrary, TOTALLY applaud you calling out @Flower smearing ALL the British people. How laughable is it, and lazy, smearing 67.33 million people like that. It’s like saying ALL of the 331.9 people in USA are bigots, racists, right-wing MAGAs, yawn….
        The Sussex squad who valiantly defend Meghan and Harry (I am one) are predominantly British and do NOT support or agree with the sleazy UK rags who print such daily rubbish about them. Nor do we want that pathetic, inept family on the throne!

      • Taytanish says:

        @Emme, but @Flower didn’t really smear ALL Brits.
        I read this in @Flower’s post: “Moving to the US was the best thing H&M ever did because there is a very vocal minority who were always going to piss into the well water no matter what they did. They were the new whipping boy and girl and Meghan did more of a service to community race relations by leaving and saying no thank you. Another reason the gammons hate her.” emphasis is on “a very vocal MINORITY” how is that smearing ALL 67+ million folks? I don’t really get why the attacks.

        Meghan Madam Duchess, you are very, very beautiful and you look so beautiful tonight. I love, LOVE, love, love every single outfit Meg wore today and tonight. Such a beautiful woman. Harry is a very, very lucky man and he knows it. And Meg is a very, very lucky woman to have married Prince Henry Charles Albert David the Duke of Sussex, Harry is a very handsome man with a terrific head on those broad shoulders; he too looked very, very dazzling tonight.

      • Flower says:

        @Taytanish thanks for your follow up comment.

        I thought my reference to the vocal majority was clear also but people will take things personally and that is ok – I still stand by my comment.

      • Flower says:

        @YOKOOHNO the ‘miserable and self-depreciating’ references were not meant as an ‘insult’ to Brits because even Brits make these social commentaries.

        Look at all the old Hugh Grant/ Working Title films and this is exactly how Brits are portrayed.

        It has been my experience that Brits are highly suspicious of ‘shiny happy people’ like Meghan from California.

        My younger brother who DGAF about the BRF said from the get go that they were going to come for Meghan not just for demographic reasons but because of her centre left politics. Meghan was the very definition of a threat to the establishment.

        I also think a lot of brits are in denial about how bigoted and racist the UK is. Being a black Brit post Brexit and Meghan really opened my eyes and broke my heart to what is going on in the UK.

    • ariel says:

      Holy crap- i was on the people site and i hit the photo which took me to the hello us insta page- and those commenters are nasty.
      I wanted to call out all the random and weird nastiness- the hugs look “fake” ??? but thought better of it.

      • Jais says:

        The thing about those nasty comments is they look sooooo unhinged. They’re so bitter and nasty and a lot of them, at least on Twitter, are from people that have the wales couple in the title. So it just makes it seem like people from the wales team are unhinged bitter and nasty. Or at least their fans are.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Flower, thank you, that was an interesting post!

        @MaryContrary, I absolutely get where you’re coming from— as a white woman in America, I’m always sort of on the defensive because I know exactly what many people think of us. It had subsided for a while, but it’s been getting worse again recently, since it’s being discussed more and more as we get closer to another election. My knee-jerk reaction is to *always* say “We’re not all like that! I’m not one of THEM!!” But after being on CB for so long, I really believe that the majority of the posters here understand that the trash British tabloids do not represent what most British people think, just as they know that Fox News doesn’t represent what most Americans think.

        As for the nasty internet comments, studies have shown that it’s mostly American women doing the overwhelming majority of the shit-stirring about Meghan online! Why this is I’ll never understand, but speaking for myself, I think the British Celebitches are lovely, and whenever anyone here says “the British public” as a generalization when talking about the negative feelings toward the Sussexes or whatever, most of us absolutely know that it’s really only referring to a small group of hard-core royalists.

        If I wasn’t on CB or Twitter, I might have assumed that most Brits (and posters from Commonwealth countries) agree with the garbage the tabloids spout about H&M, simply because I wouldn’t have known any better, but I’ve learned here and from British Twitter “friends” that most people in the UK don’t think or care about the royals much at all, and those that do have varying opinions. That the Sussexes definitely have support from plenty of British people, and that there are many who see through the BS and see the BRF for the cult that it is.

        Anyway, that’s my two cents, FWIW.

        ETA: @Jais, I haven’t looked at any of the comments today, but ITA that in general they’re disturbing in how demented they are. It’s legitimately scary to think that the people who think and say these vile things walk among us.

    • PrincessK says:

      Yes, l was surprised at the off the shoulder style. Of course she looks beautiful but it would not be my choice for an event focused on mental health and young people.

    • Jais says:

      @flower’s first sentence is talking about some Brits being so nasty. Some Brits. So I didn’t see it as a smear. Also to add, when someone calls Americans racist magas, I don’t get mad and say but not all Americans and get upset at my whole country being smeared. There really are racist magas in America. Yeah, it sucks.

    • jane says:

      copy who and what;;;????????, frumpy kate wth charlie angels hairdo or arrogant entitled baldy both dresses like old people gosh!!

  8. JanetDR says:

    Happy to see them out doing their work and safely!
    I am always jealous of Meghan’s slender ankles. Mine look very sturdy but they are not.

    • Kathleen says:

      @JanetDr – “mine look very sturdy but are not” hahahahaahahahahahaha good lord, do I know exactly what you mean!

      • JanetDR says:


      • Avonan says:

        I very much appreciate your post, speaking as you do from the perspective of a black woman in the UK. Systemic racism permeates so much of everyday life in western “society,” and your calling it out on behalf of Meghan is revelatory.

      • Christine says:

        I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. I am 5’8″, and my ankles, when looked at, can only be described as “sturdy”, but they have never lived up to the job, for my entire life.

        She looks like she is balancing on toothpicks, to me, and every move is confident and not at all, “shit, my ankle is going to roll any minute now”.

        ETA: And I only wear sneakers and flats! How Meghan is this graceful is beyond me.

  9. QuiteContrary says:

    They both look great, but holy moly, that suit on Meghan! Perfection.

    Seeing Meghan in that letterman jacket reminded me of Princess Diana in a Philadelphia Eagles jacket of the same style. She also has Diana’s warmth and charisma.

    (Also, I know this is catty, but imagine Kate using the word “devolve” in a sentence.)

  10. Myeh says:

    So glad to see the both of them flourishing while helping others prosper. Love love love the cream off the shoulder number. So classy and cozy looking at the same time. I expect to see a buttony single white femaling version cosplay on you know who soon…

    • Scooby Gang says:

      “I saw Meghan Markle wearing army pants and flip flops. So I bought army pants and flip flops.” #YouKnowWho 😂

      • Jais says:

        Googling varsity jackets…

      • HeatherC says:

        Given that the letter jacket M is wearing is from a UK school, I predict RepliKant will arrange for a visit to a high school and somehow get a jacket from that school prior to her visit so she can wear it there, it’ll hit two birds with one stone…SWF of Meghan and Keen Theme Dressing.

    • Murphy says:

      Oh my god, she’ll be doing it TOMORROW, she’s so predictable.

    • BeanieBean says:

      My personal taste runs opposite of most of y’all, apparently. I’m loving the black outfit with the letterman jacket and am less than crazy over the white suit–mostly because I can’t see myself in it, though Meghan looks lovely!

  11. Becks1 says:

    oh she looks amazing. Glowing and happy. Harry looks nice too, lol.

    Can’t wait for more coverage tomorrow! I was so excited to see this post as it is haha.

  12. s808 says:

    that white suit is gorgeous!!! I love that she wore the varsity jacket she got from the school she visited in 2020. that was one of the best engagements she had done during her time in the UK.

  13. Snuffles says:

    “The Mail is already crying about how Meghan and Harry were moving around New York in a seven-vehicle convoy. ”

    This is such a relief. It looks like NYPD is taking this shit seriously. What happened last time was not only dangerous to the public but an embarrassment for the city.

    That said. They look wonderful. I saw some small clips and by the looks on everyone’s faces, I’m expecting there were some gut wrenching stories told by the parents there.

    • Jaded says:

      I wonder what’s going on with the investigation? That was some serious sh*t they went through and could have resulted in much more serious consequences, and yet radio silence. Things that make you go hmmmm…

  14. bettyrose says:

    How exciting to get a late day post! They look so good and are such naturals at this. Good for them for taking security seriously, though. How ’bout we get a media agreement that if you sell papers by riling people up, sometimes to the point of violent fervor, you don’t get to comment on the size of someone’s security detail?

  15. Nanea says:

    It looks like both events, that at the Marcy Lab and the one at Hudson Yards, the Archewell Foundation Parents’ Summit, were a huge success.

    It’s good to see H&M have assembled a team at Archewell who are pros at what they’re doing, putting events like this together, and make sure word gets out.

    The Archewell merchandise!

    Of course it helps that H&M are charming and sincere, and knowledgeable.

    I love what they were wearing for both events, and of course the Altuzzarra top had sold out within minutes. The power of the squad! … and the Derangers derailing on social media, showing the true state of their mental health on this World Mental Health day.

  16. Harper says:

    Not only does Megan look positively angelic and stylish, but the whole aesthetic of the room was well-thought out. The white chairs and white flowers for the speakers, but even the attendees were seated in white chairs. Apparently there were some heartbreaking testimonials from parents and you can just see Meghan wanting to create a soothing and nurturing visual environment for them. Outstanding attention to detail obviously done out of love by Archewell.

  17. Laura says:

    Would be hilarious if Kate copy-keened the letterman jacket, a traditionally American thing.

  18. Realist says:

    I think she looks lovely but I don’t this this outfit works for the event. An all white outfit with with flowing pants and white (light? Can’t quite tell) heels don’t work in the middle of October, and I have no idea how a white off the shoulders top for a conference during the day would be considered appropriate.

    Maybe if this was a darker color, but even then , the off the shoulders do not work.

    • sparrow says:

      Totally agree. i couldn’t work out whether it was a day/evening event; why she was so dressed up and so differently from others; how it fitted the event. You’re right – it looked out of context. it’s just not that flattering an outfit, full stop. however, this is the thing with Meghan imo – her clothes can be (more often) hit or miss but the woman herself is always bang on; it’s what she does, not what she wears. She glows with purpose. Her engagement with those around her always strikes me more than what she’s wearing.

    • ArtFossil says:

      Yes, @Realist, I never wear white after Labor Day. (snark).

      More importantly, @Harper above has astute observations about how well thought out the whole aesthetic of the room was with the white flowers and white chairs. At this event, Harry and Meghan were center stage and they needed to pull focus without disrupting the soothing environment. Harry’s dark suit and Megan’s updo and off the shoulder look provided two focal points without clashing with the neutral color scheme.

      Finally (and fortunately), it is Meghan who decides what is “considered appropriate” for the events she attends, not some phantom arbiter.

    • M says:

      It’s winter white (aka cream) and light tan shoes. Perfectly lovely for Fall. And are we really saying shoulders are scandalous? Give me a break.

      • Debbie says:

        Of course, shoulders are scandalous, @M. Didn’t you know? See, women can’t show too much bare leg, bosom, or body-conscious clothes, mustn’t be sleeveless – just ask Michelle Obama, and their shoes, oh those shoes must hide all suggestion of toes, because women can’t wear open toed shoes unless it’s after dark. That woman should just wear a burka and be done with it, the way some people try to police her clothing.

      • Sweetpeas says:

        Thank you, it’s a Winter white . Some may even say eggshell. But it’s far from white. I have an long sweater dress with an matching cardigan, that stops right above my ankles. I usually wear the set with my winter white boots or 3 inch heels. This is one of my favorite colors to wear during winter.

    • Jais says:

      Gotta disagree. I think the white suit works works for October, mostly bc seasonal rules seem silly. She looks professional imo. Baring the shoulders in a quality suit does not make her unprofessional or less serious.

    • Eurydice says:

      Considering that she’s sitting right under the name of her own foundation, whatever she wants to wear is appropriate.

      • ProudTurtle says:

        Whatever she wears is appropriate. Her organization, her event, her taste and fashunz!
        She ALWAYS looks amazing because of her poise, posture, and inner beauty, periodt!

    • The Old Chick says:

      A lot of thought goes in to what she wears for events. She doesn’t slap on a random suit or a cosplay outfit. Winter white is beautiful if you can carry it off (and she can). It’s a summit to meet with parents. She’s dressed formally but not in an intimidating style. Not a power suit. She looks beautiful and professional and warm and inviting. The atmosphere should be relaxed. But there’s always someone.

    • Ameerah M says:

      The no-white after Labor Day rule was done away with ages ago and it’s an antiquated way of looking at fashion considering that only America celebrates that particular holiday. It’s an absurd fake rule. And I’m glad it’s gone the way of the dinosaurs where it belongs.

      Also – if you’re going to use that absurd rule you should at least get it “right”. Winter white doesn’t count. And never did. Which is what she’s wearing.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Dear @Realist, please explain further why the outfit in its entirety doesn’t work at this event. Is showing shoulders wrong? Is cream colored clothing wrong? I need to know these things. I have 2 super soft tunic sweaters from Nordstrom’s. One black, one cream colored. Nordstrom’s claimed the cream colored one was popular in winter. Were they lying? Off white heels don’t work in October? Pray tell!

    • Lady Esther says:

      Come sit by me. I’ve never liked that style on Meghan or anyone else; it looks like her shoulders are bound with loo roll. Her hair, makeup and shoes were on point and I love a great jumpsuit but this is not it….

    • Sunday says:

      It’s ivory, not white (subtle but different), and this was an event at which they were discussing the tragic loss of children’s lives. It’s an appopriate color for a memorial and seems like a respectful choice that’s true to Meghan’s own personal style.

      Also, she’s dressed for sitting down in a panel. Her outfit is comfortable and has tons of visual interest without being garish or disrespectful to the issue of the day.

  19. Ann says:

    I’m going to read more about the Marcy Lab school. If Kate wears a letterman jacket after this, I’m through. I love that white suit. I’d love to have it!

  20. Cel2495 says:

    Lord! She looks beautiful! I loooove that outfit and fits her amazingly.

    I want that outfit… but don’t have the money! 😂

  21. Teagirl says:

    Can anyone tell me what it’s like to wear something like the off the shoulder top? How does it stay in position? Does it slip down the arms? What is it made of, does anyone know?

    She looks absolutely glorious.

    • Debbie says:

      Will power. No, really, part of it is good posture but it’s also because clothes like that are constructed in such a way that they take care to anticipate accidents.

    • I see you too says:

      I would like to know tool I have a few like that but have never worn them.

      • Bee (not THAT Bee) says:

        Wear it around the house and get used to it. Like Debbie says, they’re designed not to fall down.

    • LynnInTx says:

      From my experience (both wearing and making) most (but not all) off the shoulder tops are in a knit, and those are usually made with a negative ease. That is, the actual measurements of the garment are smaller than the body. This helps friction of the fabric against the skin, among other things, keep it in place. In addition, usually the uppermost part of the top is cut even smaller, particularly than the bust line, which also helps it not slip down. If it’s cut right and falls in the correct place (which Meghan’s does), you can pretty freely move your arms even with that tightness and negative ease. Additionally, there may or may not be clear straps that go over the shoulders to help hold it in place. I’ve had more problems with them riding UP than any falling down.

      On topic – she looks amazing at both events, and I wish I had her shoulders and collarbones! Glad they had such a substantial security detail this trip too.

  22. AC says:

    Meghan is just on trend with everything(have said it before but I love her California cool 😊, but I’m also biased as it’s my state too lolz). . I saw some clips of her speaking at the event, she’s so well-spoken. The moment she speaks everyone’s attention is on her.

    I stand by my comments regarding her outfit, just like everyone else commenting on it likely stands by theirs.

      Well goody for you. Whatever would we do if some new name didn’t try to police Meghan’s body.
      Luckily YOU were here to tell us how inappropriate she was being.

      • one of the marys says:

        Are we not allowed to have a negative opinion on this board anymore? My God this comment is not policing Meghan’s body. The poster doesn’t think the ensemble is appropriate for a day time / business event. I happen to agree. It’s gorgeous and flattering and better suited for an evening reception or party. That’s my opinion which i should be free to share here.

    I know. I know. Don’t compare. We don’t have to, but I am petty cackling. It’s just that we have seen the copy of pantsuits. Meg said, bet! This is what it looks like when you’re the original, not the carbon copy.

    Come on. An off-the-shoulder blazer?

  25. Flying fish says:

    RepliKate is somewhere throwing pillows!

  26. Tessa says:

    Meghan looks fabulous. So great to see harry and meghan

  27. Crystal says:

    I’m so happy for them and they’re doing great work! It’s great that they have more security now because that last visit in NYC was so scary.

  28. Kozy Komfort says:

    I love this outfit.

  29. Kozy Komfort says:

    I love this look!

  30. J.Ferber says:

    I have NEVER seen Duchess Meghan look more gorgeous. Never. These pics will EXPLODE Khate’s head. How in the world do you COMPETE with one of the most beautiful and dynamic women in the world? Copykeening will just make Khate look dowdier and older. Good luck with that, Khate. You will NEED it.

    YESSS TO THAT WHITE OUTFIT! although i wouldn’t call that a suit?
    I like the letterman jacket. but have to say the skinny jeans is kinda meh now. reminds me too much of Kate’s jeggings.

  32. Mslove says:

    Meghan looks beautiful! I love her compassion. I still have my letterman’s jacket from school, maybe I should dig it out, lol.

  33. CM says:

    Killer suit- I want!!

  34. Lily says:

    At first I saw the white suit from a side angle and liked it. Front on, it made Meghan look wide and heavy and she’s not. So the cut from that angle was a no for me.

  35. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    Thank you for a late post! So beautiful❤️😍. I can’t necessarily afford the winter white outfit, but I’m glad it’s sold out so I can’t try and figure it out. 🤣😂

  36. Libra says:

    Love the black outfit with her hair down. How does she look like a teenager; aging in reverse? Not a fan of the later up do style with dangling tendrils. I’m still trying to decide how I feel about the white outfit.

  37. AC says:

    I also love her simple look with her letterman jacket. It gives that collegiate preppy look which is a classic style.

  38. L4Frimaire says:

    I love that she wore the varsity jacket from the UK school to the event in Brooklyn. No one had any idea they were making that stop and it’s such a cool program. This isn’t some little visit. Archewell has been working with and giving funds to the school for almost a year. Still only getting a smattering of details from Hudson Yards but it seemed very emotional, the Sussexes have spent a lot of time with these families and they were prepared. The white suit. That’s a lot of shoulder, not my style at all, but she looked fantastic in it. It fits well and very Meghan. Despite having buttons,don’t see it being copied so easily,lol. I loved the fit of the trousers, and she tailored the jacket to have better proportions. She radiates confidence and warmth. She looked really good. They both did. They clearly love their work and there is purpose and passion behind it.

    • sunny says:

      I really love both outfits. She looks gorgeous and happy. I’m so jealous of her ability to wear white! I look pretty good in white as a Black woman(the contrast is fantastic) but I am hella clumsy so that colour only stays pristine on me for a short time.

      But more importantly, love the work that their foundation is doing and the commitment to the work. It is so nice that they are thriving and I am glad they are taking lots of precautions with their security. I bet they are a bit nervous still after their last trip to New York.

      • Tila says:

        Oh that’s interesting. I’m black and really do not suit blanc white. I need an off white colour to suit the depth of my skin tone. I have a yellow base so I cannot wear blanc white. My sister has a blue base so can wear blanc.

  39. Lala11_7 says:

    I have a theory that she’s wearing bare shouldered outfits not only because SHE HAS GLORIOUS shoulders & neckline…but she ALSO keeps Kate from STRAIGHT hijacking those outfits…The juxtaposition between the creamy toned warm looking winter suit & her bare skin is PERFECTION❤️

    • MsIam says:

      That’s my theory too, that she’s trying to make sure Keen doesn’t copy, wearing the bare shoulders and shorts. She’s also, I think asserting her further independence from the palace machine. But mostly, I think Meghan is being herself and I’m here for that. I think her outfit is gorgeous and glamorous.

    • Sunday says:

      100% agree, I think it’s her diplomatic way of trying to stop the copykeening, which has to be disturbing. Same goes for the letterman jacket, shorts, and stylishly mussier hairstyles. Personally I think Meghan should start showing up everywhere in McQueen coat dresses until Kate is forced to start dressing like herself again.

  40. FancyPants says:

    It kinda feels like Meghan is trolling Kate with that varsity jacket, and I am 100% here for it. “Oh, you want to copy me? Let’s see you pull off this look!”

  41. Tila says:

    I have the same varsity jacket as Meghan! This is honestly one of the proudest moments of my life 😅

  42. Amy Bee says:

    Clearly Meghan was touched by her visit to the Robert Clarke School. It was a bright spot in a mostly terrible time in the UK. Meghan looked fabulous and she and Harry have every right to have a 7 car convey after what happened in NY the last time.

  43. mellie says:

    I love the letter jacket look….so cute! And the white/cream suit is beautiful. But, I love most what these two stand for, health and happiness and peace. I’m thankful for the fact that they spoke up and helped bring mental health awareness to the fore front. And Carson Daly’s speech at the event last night and his discussion about his own mental health struggles over the past couple of years have been very moving and important as well.

  44. kerfuffles says:

    This is no shade to Harry and Meghan at all, but I was not prepared for the sentence “Harry and Meghan appeared with the US Surgeon General and Carson Daly.” One of these things is not like the others. 😂

  45. Janice Hill says:

    Stunning yes. Always. I’m a big fan of the Duchess. But I’m not a fan of off shoulder unless it’s fancy dress or cocktails. This is not.
