Emily Nash

The Queen and Prince of Wales will then present a new Queen's Colour to the @RoyalAirForce on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace and make a short speech. Members of the Royal Family will then view a flypast and Feu de Joie from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

BIG royal outing: The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William, Harry, Meghan, Andrew, Edward, Sophie and Edward will attend a service at Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force on July 10, ahead of #HarryandMeghan's visit to Dublin.

I think kate disappearing is a strategy. Did she disappear so much in her previous pregnancies?

Will she appear in Wimbledon? After not attending any event it does not look good.

I doubt she'll miss Wimbledon. Wonder if Squirrel Boy and Pips will pull another embarrassing stunt this year.

I also think she'll be at Wimbledon. I don't think she's missed even one year since marrying in, and it's never been in the CC anyway. Might be now that she took on some sort of role, but in any case I can't imagine she'll miss Wimbledon.

Britain salutes our heroes of the skies: Royal Family's Fab Four Harry, Meghan, William and Kate join the Queen for Westminster Abbey service to mark RAF centenary

    The Queen and royal family members have arrived at Westminster Abbey as part of day-long RAF celebrations
    Her Majesty was joined by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
    Royals will later appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to view a large flypast of up to 100 RAF aircraft
    It is 100 years since 1918 when the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF

I'm just here for the fashion...and a lil analysis  tehe

The Queen looked fab in her two different blues coat
https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/10/10/4E1492AF00000578-5937227-The_Queen-a-73_1531216211654.jpg

I like Camilla in white, Sophie as well!

I don't know about Anne, maybe if the entire outfit was the color of her jacket.

Kate is great. Why didn't she wear this for Prince Louis Christening?
https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/10/10/4E147F1100000578-5937227-Duchess_of_Cambridge-a-43_1531215247638.jpg

Meghan's dress color is navy according to Meghan's Mirror, but its a really dark navy that photographs black, oy. The full skirt looks really good but there goes that neckline again. And another non-British dress.
https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/10/11/4E148C6000000578-5937227-The_Duchess_of_Sussex_opted_for_an_ultra_feminine_black_dress_wi-a-92_1531217619995.jpg

I just can't with the suede shoes in spring/summer with Kate and Meghan, Sophie and Camilla are wearing the appropriate footwear - patent leather.  thumbsup

A lot of DM comments mention Harry looking glum around Meghan. I tried to find a picture of him smiling (half-smiling) at her, but the two below are the only ones that exists, on the article that is:
https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/10/13/4E1555C700000578-5937227-image-m-31_1531227255710.jpg

Harry only smiles when talking to others, which is what we all do, I think.

To me K's outfit is a fail, for the simple reason that it looks almost exactly like the yellow coat she had for Char's Christening, which she apparently had dulicated (with different sleeves) for Haz's wedding, and now basically again the same coat, only difference: the sleeves are shorter now and the coat's pastel blue.
The brooch is hideous and always has been, but I guess nice she dusted it off for this..

Murky's outfit's nice, but Dior, really? Guess she only wore British during the engagement period..
The dress does photograph very dark, but to me it's clearly dark blue.

All the nude shoes have to go, and suede in summer.... Goodness.

Is Meghan ever planning on wearing a British label, or something that isn’t from the couture houses? What does she have against the country she is now claiming to be part of?

Why is it her clothes appear badly made, even the debacle of the wedding frock.

^You're right.  Up close, the cut is badly tailored.  I've seen all I want of that neckline, too.  Her stuff always wrinkles and look like borderline cocktail dresses.

At least her hair is tamed.

^^The dress looks pulled severely tight across the chest area. Looks uncomfortable-I don't think she dare take a deep breath.

I noticed the chest area too. Surprising that such an expensive label makes that error. Maybe is the type of fabric but for that price...

Anyway Meghan the last two times seems like she is going somewhere else. This dress is pretty but she looks strange next to the other women of the RF. Maybe she made her wardrobe for autumn??

Also we complained about Kate wearing Mcqueen ehich is really expensive and temperley when she started... and Meghan is wearing hautr couture?? !! There is no one telling her maybe you should space your expensive clothing with repeats or cheap british labels?

I thought she was way smarter but she seems new rich and not seeing long term. Carole must be laughing all the time.

^Good point, Alex.  She’s definitely behaving like new money.  Time to harness her spending or space it out.

Besides, just because it’s haute couture doesn’t mean it is automatically appropriate for the person or occasion.  For someone who claims to know all about branding, she’s missed the mark pretty much every time.
