Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Wear Their Sunday Best for the Christening of Prince Louis

Posted on July 09, 2018

Darlings, those nice Cambridges and that lovely Sussex couple got all dressed up for a family affair. We’re not here to judge anyone’s church clothes, but that doesn’t mean we all can’t have a nice look and … offer some gentle opinions.

 

The little prince has the most ostentatious dress out of anyone in this group, which is as it should be, per Kensington Palace: “Today Prince Louis will wear a replica of the Royal Christening Robe which was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.”

As for Cathy, she looks very elegant and this ensemble re-establishes her preference for white for church events. We tend to dislike her taste in fascinators and hats, but we really love this one. As she’s gotten older, her style has evolved slightly to become more stately and formidable in tone. She cuts a figure and demands attention without seeming like she’s trying to.

The Dukes aren’t just well-coordinated, they’re wearing practically identical outfits. We said before that this foursome seems to have their image as the future of the monarchy locked into place. They seem very committed to the idea of stepping out looking so coordinated it almost comes off like a uniform.

We’re surprised to see Meghan in another American designer. It certainly doesn’t bother us if she goes that route, but it seems like a fairly bold choice when the British press seems to be gunning for her at every turn. The color is an interesting choice. Low-key, but still rich. She hasn’t quite landed on the right hat just yet, but we imagine that’s a skill that takes some time to develop. It certainly took Cathy several years.
