Why, we do believe the future Princess Henry is starting to get the hang of this thing.
The coat is just the right size and shape, as are the pants. She’s had issues with both in the past, losing herself inside voluminous coats and hem-dragging elephant-leg pants. We can certainly understand why a gal in her position might unconsciously opt for cozy protection while interest in her reaches scarily stratospheric levels, but she is much, much better off – at least from a picture-taking/branding perspective – with sharp pieces that fit her well and make some sort of statement about who she’s going to be in this family.
She’s picked up two things from her future sis-in-law: stay away from colors and match your outfits to your husband’s.
Regardless of whether there’s a story behind this image or not, what it’s saying is amazingly powerful. It’s not for us to decide what Meghan will mean to her new people, but it sure feels like Great Britain got their own Michelle Obama out of the deal.
