It strikes me that Meghan is "showing" in a way that was not accounted for when all of her clothes on this journey were selected and fitted. The white gown is lovely, I loved the teal dress, and the red modified pleated dress was terrific. She is short-waisted under the best of circumstances, and contrasting belts might have added definition to her figure where it was lacking. But I'm thinking we can see, from beginning to end of the trip, that her little bump has had a growth spurt, and it has thrown off the tailoring. Belts now ride up. Also, longer midi-lengths do not flatter her. Just below the knee for day dresses looks like the sweet spot for her, rather than mid-calf or ballet length. When wearing full length gowns, she has been wise to choose columns of unfussed solid color, giving her height a visual boost. But I think we need to cut her some slack, all things considered.

She looks good here. It's a silhouette that works with a slight bump. Is the diamond bracelet new? Don't think we've seen it before. I know she has a thinner one, a gift from Charles and the wider deco Cartier piece she wore on her wedding day, but this one looks different than those two.

I love the cut and movement of this dress. I don’t really like the bedazzled accents on the shoulders...but she looks stunning. And that ring!!

Love that she wore the "Diana" aqua ring again. To bad, can't really see it in the pictures.

Just realized that diamond bracelet ikely was Diana's as I just came across that famous photo of her in that gorgeous blue and white beaded dress where's she's quite tan, holding a wine glass whilst showing the aquamarine ring. And there's the diamond bracelet that seems identical to the one Meghan is wearing with this dress.
