Cathy Cambridge and Meghan Markle at Commonwealth Day 2020

Posted on March 09, 2020

Cathy and Megs hit the bricks (literally!) in some bold and bright looks for Commonwealth Day.

 

Cathy Cambridge in Catherine Walker

Mrs. Cathy is a vision in red – all red – as she pairs one of her fave Catherine Walker coats with a stunning and totally royal sort of chapeau. It takes a certain something to pull of a hat like that and she didn’t always have the skill, but she’s really figured out how to master them – and which type suit her best. It’s all in her preferred matchy tones, but we appreciate that the shoes and bag coordinate at a darker shade than the coat and hat.

Megs pulls a three-fer on her goodbye tour. It’s official with this third look, which follows a pattern of suddenly embracing the kinds of bold colors that always suited her best, but that she avoided like the plague after she got married, Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor would like you all to stay mad as she happily esconces to another continent with her prince. That is the smile of a Duchess who’s feeling herself. We love the hat and the cape, but the shape of the dress leaves is a little underwhelmed. Love the un-royal bag but the beige shoes aren’t slaying us. Still, it’s boldly declarative and confident in a way her official Duchess-wear never was. She’s making a point.
