She fiddles with her frikkin hair and flashes the ring just like Waity ick

Now she just needs to perfect the crotch clasp and the "Diana faces".

The dress looks fine with the blazer, but from the pic of the dress alone in the article I find it a hideous dress, esp the shoulder part.
Overall also a dress for "brunch with friends", but not a good choice for an official/ diplomatic engagement.

PS I just remembered she has copied Diana's clothes and poses already too, oh well.... She's the perfect package then and fits well with Waity!

Meghan kept the blazer on this time.  I like the splash of colour for Spring. It's a nice print and shade of green IMO and the pleats are flattering. Like the bag too.

Good that Meghan met our PM Malcolm Turnbull and his wife Lucy as Harry/Meghan will be in Australia in October for the IG. High Commissioner Alexander Downer was greeting the couple too.

Yeah she kept the blazer on and thankfully didn't show the fugly part of the dress by keeping it on and also thankfully wore the blazer properly, as it's meant to be worn and not slung over.. Blazer, bag and shoes were nice.

That dress does not flatter her upper body, she doesn't have the right body shape to wear it, she has no boobs for that style. Plus, terrible print, IMHO. I like the green colour though.

A clip from the IG reception at Australia House today, with Harry calling 'Meg' to introduce her to some officials.

^ When he called her and she went over to him, she was about to again put her hand on his back and he then kinda shoved her towards the official. So annoying that she always wants to stroke, pat or touch him on arms or back like he's some kid. I tend to do that when I'm with kids, but not adults easter-sly

I suspect H was Napoleon in his past life, by the way he constantly has his hand on his stomach... sigh

When they were watching that video he was somewhat normal and she had her eyes wide open and that look on her face like she wants to look perfect for a picture just in case someone snaps some... I recognize that look!  bored3

Does Harry have any other suit choices besides navy blue?  Gettin' old, buddy. 

*despise* the dress, too low cut, looks cheap.  Love the blazer, though.  Well made/cut.  Scruffy shoes and I don't understand why suede would be a choice in spring.  She really uses the bondo on her face which is a disaster in the complexion dept.  Makeup is also an entirely different color than the rest of her body. 

She doesn't have the public rhythm down yet, either.  Her natural bent is to be front and center so she intuitively races in ahead of everybody, camera hunting.  This will be a change for her to be second place and I do wish they'd back off on shoving her in the media until the wedding now.  It's overkill.  And desperate.

^ I saw that dress on twitter somewhere without the blazer and the front is way way too low. 

She just comes across as someone acting a part, not someone who is a part of something.

Besides the too-low neckline...I didn't notice at first, but several DM comments pointed out that there are 3 see-through stitching areas on the dress. With the straps and cold-shoulders, it seems like the wrong dress for a future royal. Even if the blazer is left on. I think it sends the wrong message for the position. It looks like she is ready to remove the blazer for cocktail hour or date night. Even without DM showing the full photos of the dress for sale, the dress as worn sends that vibe. Wouldn't be appropriate for a business meeting (even casual)... Not for anyone who wants to be taken seriously!

I love the colour and pattern of the dress but agree that it's too casual for a business meeting with dignitaries.
There's a pattern with their engagements. She attends minor events but not the more meaningful ones like the commonwealth dinner at Buckingham Palace and hopefully the quee's birthday concert to be held tonight.

 She's too fashion forward and too effortlessly chic in her mind to dress per the occasion.

Wonder if she will have weights sewn into the hems of her dresses and skirts? If she does, then she has one thing going in her favor.
