Just back from holiday with internet intermittent at best so loads to catch up on. (You've all been very busy).

With KM recycling old outfits because Charles won't foot the bill for a layabout in KM, do you think this might be happening now to MM? Maybe because he doesn't approve of her? That's why her shoes are too big. She's still having to get freebies.

A click bait article if I ever saw one. The DM outdid even themselves. How do they know what she paid.

Charles can't be mean to Meghan and undo the good PR he got from escorting her down the aisle. Charles is image conscious IMO.

The wedding was a few weeks ago. Some outfits shown were pre marriage and she purchased the outfits but at book price? Actresses are lent clothes for the red carpet and jewels. This is a well known fact. So did she get to keep all those outfits? I doubt it. ANd actresses get discounts for some of the clothes. I have seen actresses on the red carpet in Chanel saying the outfit was borrowed. The DM is really trying to stir things up. Like they always do. I do find it amusing that some commentators on the DM find Kate lives "cheaply." I'm still laughing at that howler

^But, Kate isn’t a US citizen under our tax laws, is she and not really the topic here, either.

This is a Clickbait article IMO, and like the supposed cost of the Royal wedding security that the British tabloids banged on about for months before (£30 million, when it turned out to be in fact around £3 million, if that.)

I don't believe that any Royal pays any quoted price for items of clothing. I think there are huge discounts involved each time, with perhaps as much as a half taken off the price charged other customers. Nor do I believe that dress designers release the prices of their garments to newspapers, especially tabloids. And that goes for purveyors of shoes, jewellery and other accessories. And some items during the engagement period would have been loans.

What's more, I don't think it would be Charles ponying up for clothing during the engagement. He isn't that generous. Like his other daughter in law his remit for Meghan began on the wedding day for official duties outfits only.

Weren't the royals supposed to not take freebies and special discounts in exchange of merching?
So far we have over 1 mil for the jewels and the clothes in merely 7 months. IRS is happy, the tax payers (of which we are not) must be thrilled to have her and the only winner in all of this is Kate who has always been conscious and thrifty with her spending.

^^ Yes, that's the rule: the Winds have a self-imposed rule to not take freebies and always pay full price. However, we know for a fact that they do not adhere to this rule.
Kate isn't at all thrifty or conscious when it comes to spending, but the PR spin is a good one and her being seen in High Street stuff on engagements as well as privately is very very good. I do think she likes the High Street stuff too, why not. In any case, it's more PR than truth that she's "thrifty" or considerate in spending. She actually a huge spendthrift and has one of the highest bills of the women. Murky has surpassed her quickly and she isn't with the heir, so double shame on her.

Kate's, Cam's & Liz's spending aside, Murky's is disgraceful. I do however think much of it were freebies and that someone else paid, or M decided to raid her savings as she thinks she has a set future in the lap of luxury. Because her earnings weren't all that great, she's nowehere near the millionairess people think or make out she is.

Yes, actresses get loans, but only for red carpet events and also only certain actresses. Not even every Oscar nominee (esp men) gets loans, if they aren't very well known, they have to buy their own. (The same goes for the women. There are a number of stories of very good and somewhat famous actresses being refused for loans, and then had to go and buy their own dresses. Even some famous people don't get loans from everyone, as some are famous for destroying the loaned clotjong so rightly designers refuse to handout any further merch)

Kate has been in the Firm since 2011. Markle just came into the Firm so she could not possibly have surpassed Kate.

Kate's history has been doing as little work as possible and grabbing for the perks. I don't buy that she is thrifty with those expensive homes and her ordering new kitchens and so forth. I think her hairdressers do not come cheap.

Also, when some of the outfits were purchased by Markle it was before the wedding day I doubt Charles would pay for clothing pre wedding. She has her own money and actresses do get heavy discounts to promote designers.

I remember some actress talking about a 6 figure diamond necklace she was wearing (borrowed). This is common practice.

Meghan Markle Just Made History as the First Royal Nominated for a Teen Choice Award

Meghan Markle's royal style has just swiftly led her to make history, less than eight months after she and Prince Harry announced their engagement. Meghan has just been announced a nominee for the Teen Choice Award for Choice Style Icon. This is the first time a royal has ever been considered for an award for the U.S. show that started in 1999. Should Meghan win, it'd also be a first—and fascinating to see whether she'd attend or more likely, record a video acceptance speech for the honor.

New season, new 'do! Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney shows off a very short new hairstyle after cutting her long locks for summer
While she appears to have kept it the same shade of dark brown, Jessica chopped off quite a few inches and debuted new shoulder-length hair on Instagram this weekend.
'Le change is Le good,' she wrote on Instagram, tagging her stylist Ryan Dowell in the picture.
Though she didn't share more about the decision — and has generally been discrete and not given much away in interviews — the style expert has had a bit to say about her hair in the past.
The response has been so big one can only imagine how much the public would talk if Meghan ever decided to go shorter.
Even Jessica's husband Ben seemed bewildered by how many people cared about his wife's new 'do. Soon after her hairstyle was covered by a number media outlets, he screengrabbed the articles and shared them in his Instagram stories, joking: 'I'm thinking of frosting my tips for summer. Thoughts?'

What's the point of this article? Is it to tell Meghan to take out her extensions to get more attention on her?  huh

She looked like a wax figure at this engagement, pretty terrible. Highlighter (& blusher) were over-done and gave a very plastic look. Is she trying to be an instagram "makeup artist" or "model"? I don't particularly like the dress either, she looked underdressed for the occasion imo, and also: Prada, really?
