The Instagram account of Kensington Palace uploaded a slideshow portraying Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry at Kingfisher Bay Resort in Australia. Meghan’s outfit didn’t please some of the followers.

In the first image of the slideshow, the Duchess of Sussex appeared in a squat position in front of a lady while holding her hand. Both of them were very excited as their smiles were one of the most striking aspects of the post.

For the second picture, the Royal couple was talking to another lady while Meghan was placing both hands on her belly as a way to protect her upcoming child. That photo gave a better glimpse of their outfits.

THEIR OUTFITS

Harry wore brown shoes, khaki pants, a dark shirt, and sunglasses. Meghan, on the other hand, chose brown strap sandals and a sleeveless, white and grey dress. The feature that attracted more attention to her clothes was her thigh-high slit.

PEOPLE’S REACTION

As soon as Kensington Palace uploaded those photos, followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts. Some of them pointed out that it was a “mess” and that, as a member of the British Royal family, Meghan should not have shown that much of her skin.

NEGATIVE COMMENTS

Others said that she probably has not understood the Dos and Don’ts about traditional British attire. A user labeled the Duchess of “attention seeker,” saying that she used to touch her hair a lot to show her wedding ring and now, she cannot stop touching her belly as a way to repeatedly tell the world that she is expecting a baby.

DEFENDING THE DUCHESS

Thankfully, a lot of people defended Meghan’s wardrobe decision saying that she looked “completely appropriate” for a walk at the beach on a hot day, especially for a pregnant woman.

Even though the couple announced the baby news less than a month ago, they have received several gifts already during their Australian tour.

ACCEPTING BABY GIFTS

Their first official presents came from Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lady Lynne Cosgrove during a reception at the Admiralty House.

The Royal couple received a fluffy stuffed kangaroo with a joey in its pouch and sheepskin Ugg booties. Harry said the gifts were “awesome,” but little did he know that they would have received many more presents from the citizens in Australia throughout their stay in the country, including more toys, clothes, and books.
