Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Club Monaco – Daisy Jenks & Charlie Van Straubenzee’s Wedding

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Club Monaco - Daisy Jenks & Charlie Van Straubenzee's Wedding

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex spent her first birthday as a royal attending the wedding of one of Prince Harry’s close friends, Charlie Van Straubenzee, on Saturday (August 4) in Frensham, England.

The Duchess wore a colour-block shirtdress from Club Monaco with her go-to Aquazzura pumps, Shaun Leane diamond Signature Tusk bangle, Linda Farrow LFL512 sunglasses and a Philip Treacy hat.

Cutting right to at the chase. I don’t like the look.

Aside from the fact that I feel like this is terribly drab and uninspiring, who wears black to a wedding?

Yes, there are blocks of colour on the skirt and yes, she probably didn’t want to upstage the bride, but I’ll take another blush frock over this any day.

I’m so disappointed that I’m able to count on one hand Meghan’s looks that I have loved since she became a royal.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Carolina Herrera – Sentebale Polo 2018

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attended the Sentebale Polo held at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club this afternoon (July 26) in Windsor, England, alongside Prince Harry, who is staging a charity fundraising polo match in aid of children in Africa living with HIV and Aids.

I know I say this every day, but TODAY is the hottest day of the year in the UK, with temperatures expected to reach a record high of 36 degrees, so I was a little surprised by her look on this occasion.

The Duchess of Sussex, did look elegant in a ’50s-style Carolina Herrera belted wrap dress, but I wish she hadn’t reverted back to her love for all things navy.

The look was kept fresh with her J.Crew clutch and nude Aquazzura pumps, with a pair of chic Tom Ford ‘Emma’ shades providing the finishing touch.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Nonie – The Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has certainly been busy with royal outings this month.

From Prince Louis christening and her two-day visit to Dublin, to her Wimbledon outing with sister in law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the newlywed continues to bring something different to each occasion.

And her latest outing – for the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition with husband Prince Harry at the Southbank Centre in London on Tuesday (July 17) – was no different.

The Duchess wore a sleeveless trench dress from Canadian ready-to-wear label, Nonie.

The blush-coloured dress featured bold black buttons, a structured collar and a loose sash tied at the waist that was styled with a pink Mulberry clutch, nude Dior pumps, and Birks jewels; which saw her mix both British and Canadian brands.

According to reports, Meghan brought the dress from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection back in 2017 while still living in Toronto.

Personally I would love to see her incorporate -what I refer to as her pre-wedding- style to events like this, so the look and feels comes across more natural.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Ralph Lauren & Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – Wimbledon Championships

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex made her first Wimbledon appearance as a member of the royal family on Saturday (July 14) alongside Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex: Once again she looked absolutely stunning in an incredibly chic blue striped shirt and cream high-waisted trousers by Ralph Lauren, but much talk has been made about her breaking Wimbledon’s Royal Box dress code. While there was nothing wrong with the Alturzarra bag and Illesteva Leonard sunglasses, her Maison Michel hat is actually banned from the Royal Box. Protocol asks that ladies do not take hats into the Royal Box to not “obscure the vision of those seated behind them”. You have to wonder who is advising Meghan, and if they are setting her up to fail.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: The avid tennis fan always looks delightful at Wimbledon, and this was no exception. Catherine wore a Jenny Packham printed dress with what appears to be a tennis ball print featuring more details on the hip and shoulder. The look was styled with a Dolce & Gabbana top handle bag.

I know many comparisons will be made, but their styles couldn’t be more different.

Meghan is very much doing modern Meghan, while Catherine is also staying true to her ultra feminine summery style.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Roland Mouret & Givenchy – Ireland Visit

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has already presented two new look before lunchtime today (July 11) in Ireland, on day two of her visit with her husband Prince Harry.

Meeting Ireland’s President: Her first look was a taupe Roland Mouret bespoke ‘Clover’ dress which she styled with a Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ black bag and black Paul Andrew pumps. The look, which is very similar to her previous Roland Mouret dress, is very dignified and perfect for a presidential meeting. But the first question I asked myself was “why isn’t she celebrating Irish designers during this trip?” That’s the one thing I loved about Michelle Obama and Duchess Catherine when they traveled, as they always made it a point to find a way to represent the country they were in. Louise Kennedy, Simone Rocha and Paul Costelloe are three Irish designers I can think of off the top of my head, but the next generation of emerging designers could’ve also benefited from being spotlighted during this trip too.

Gaelic Athletic Association: Meghan’s second look saw her cut a stylish figure as she took the field in cropped black Givenchy suit and a white shirt, styled with a Givenchy belt and Sarah Flint pumps – when block heels or wedges would’ve been more appropriate considering the turf. On this occasion she traded in her Fendi bag for a small black clutch. Meghan hasn’t had much time to repeat, but this look did remind me of her Alexander McQueen look worn back in February.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Emilia Wickstead – Glencairn House Summer Party

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s third and final look of the day was revealed at the summer garden party hosted at the British Ambassador’s residence in Dublin, Ireland on Tuesday evening (July 10).

Following Emilia Wickstead criticism of Meghan’s Givenchy Haute Couture wedding gown, many believed that was the end of her royal connection; but that doesn’t appear to be the case as the Duchess wore a little black dress by the New Zealand-born fashion designer to show that she bares no hard feelings.

My feelings are that she once again looks chic and polished; but I kinda wanted a little bit more for a summer garden party.

Perhaps her disastrous foray in florals has made her a bit cautious about stepping out of her newly acquired comfort-zone, but I hope that on day two of her visit we get a bit more variety, even if it’s something cheesy like a red and white dress to support the national football team who play Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday.

Aquazurra Deneuve pumps and Birks earrings are fast becoming her go-to accessories, along with her Givenchy clutch.
