Meghan Markle In Altuzarra – CHOGM London 2018

[...]

I love the dress, but that blazer was so unnecessary.

Even if she was required to wear it as some to add some formality to her look, she should’ve worn it properly as it’s too structured to be slung over the shoulders successfully and comes off looking awkward and bulky.

The crossbody bag feels too informal. This was a meeting at the Commonwealth with delegates. Not brunch on Solane Square with your gal pals.

[...]

My sentiments exactly. This is such a miss. The blazer slung over the shoulders looked absolutely dreadful, esp from behind. Like she was hiding a hunchback or some weird contraption underneath. The pic belowe illustrates perfectly why this 80s throwback blazer with padded shoulders has to be worn as it is intended to - properly and not "I'm too kool for skool coz I'm Megsy."

Her whole outfit, the jewellery, it all just screams "informal" and is just not fit for purpose.

Don't even get me started on Eugenie today.

PS Not to mention overpriced. Throwing so much money at sth and looking like this.. smh! The dress is cute for brunch or whatever, perfectly put in the blog post, but still shockingly overpriced for a dungarees inspired casual dress!!

The Queen treats world leaders to stunning display of pomp and pageantry at Buckingham Palace as she tells them it is her 'sincere wish' they pick Prince Charles as leader of the Commonwealth

    Heads of state and dignitaries arrived at Buckingham Palace ahead of a summit for Commonwealth nations
    The Queen, Prince Charles and Theresa May were among those to speak inside the palace's grand ballroom
    More than 100 soldiers from the Coldstream Guards carried flags of the Commonwealth's 53 member states
    During the opening ceremony, the Prime Minister thanked the Queen for her devotion to the Commonwealth

I would've chosen this as the dress I wore to the event. It fits into that niché of casual enough depending on how you style the accesories but classy enough to look polished near delegats.

Why SHOULD Charles automatically replace his mother as head of the Commonwealth, asks JANET STREET-PORTER? It needs a charismatic leader from the real world - not someone served by fawning footmen

I hope this is all in the right threads, as it's all commonwealth stuff.

This dress is good, though as per protocol black is a no-no which everyone seems to ignore anyway. I like the dress and it's affordable (266 GBP, not heinously expensive and then cherry on top, inappropriate and/ or fugly).

I feel like I have seen the dress before on someone, but I can't place it for the life of me... easter-think

imo she should stop bronzing her cheeks, like Kate should do away with the blusher, it photographs terribly.

Black dress?  thumbsdown Megs should learn from the Queen to wear bright colored dresses so as to stand out. Imagine that dress in blue, green, or even purple  thumbsup

The bun is tidier, and thank goodness she isn't fidgeting with her hair.

He still is putting out the nauseating spin about Camilla. He should be grateful his mother is talking him up but he still apparently isn't satisfied. He never is.

How and when will we know if Prince Charles will succeed the Queen as the head of the Commonwealth?

I don't believe for a moment #TheQueen would have hinted about her wish for #ThePrinceofWales succeeding her as #HeadoftheCommonwealth without first having been given a clear indication by Commonwealth leaders that it was their wish for him to do so

I agree with Dickie. I think that Charles will get the position and Harry will assist him regarding the younger generation.

At this time at least the organisation needs to stay steady with someone with long experience and contacts.  Ms Street Porter is so predictable. Good idea if
Harry assists Charles with younger people in the Commonwealth.

Charles gets the nod: Prince WILL be next Head of the Commonwealth as group's leaders agree he should succeed the Queen

    The Queen said last night it was her 'sincere wish' her son should take over from her as she turns 92 tomorrow
    Leaders of 53 states are meeting at Windsor Castle today to make final decision on Prince of Wales' role
    Sources have said that the world leaders agree that he should get the job with official announcement later
    Some critics had urged Commonwealth to choose a foreign leader or rotate job around member countries
    Her Majesty's call has helped Charles' case with Justin Trudeau among leaders also backing him for the job

Why is it shocking?

It was totally expected.

Most of the leaders had already come out and said that they supported him in to take over from his mother as the figurehead Head of the Commonwealth. In Australia, for instance, he had the support of both sides of politics to have this position - even though the leaders of both sides would like Australia to be a republic.
