Meghan Markle slammed on social media for blue floral dress

The new Duchess is just starting to adapt to royal life, but the public can't seem to stop their scrutiny of her every move and decision.


Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, married Prince Harry on May 19 in a beautiful ceremony in St George's Chapel at WIndsor Castle. Since then, she has started to make official appearances in a royal capacity, with the world watching closely.

On June 16, she stepped out with her husband at his cousin's wedding in Lincolnshire, and while high fashion sites praised her wardrobe choice for the day, the public took a rather scathing view of the loose-fitting Oscar De La Renta dress.

The garment was white with a blue floral pattern across the fabric. It featured a v-neck cut over a wrap-style top, an asymmetrical hemline that was longer in the back, and full length sleeves that seemed too long on the Duchess.

The dress was tied at her waist, but cut very loose on her tiny frame. The gown would have set the Duchess back over $5000.

Members of the public were less than charmed by the garment, with one even comparing it to his bedspread.


Some felt that the entire outfit was just a disaster.

And some couldn't understand why anyone would be praising the look.


Some thought the fail was the fault of the desinger.


While others couldn't understand how anyone could possibly think the outfit would work.

Meghan completed the outfit with a pair of sky-high white Aquazurra stilettos, and a white fascinator. She wore her hair in a loose bun at the base of her neck, and was all smiles as she enjoyed the event with her husband.

She only looked unsteady on one occasion, as she tried to navigate the uneven pathway in her heels. As she stumbled, her husband immediately reacted by throwing out a steady arm for her to grab to catch her balance.


Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told Town & Country that people need to stop being so quick to judge the new Duchess as she adjusts to royal life, and that there is nothing wrong with the clothing she is chosing to wear.

"Meghan will have been surrounded by people that are there to offer guidance and support, in particular Samantha Cohen, who has been working for the Queen for a number of years." Arbiter says, "and Camilla and Kate are there to offer any number of questions. But ultimately, there’s Prince Harry, and he’s not about to throw his new bride under the bus. She would have asked him, and he would have said 'Yes, that’s fine.'"

The wedding the couple were attending was that of Harry's first cousin, Celia McCorquodale – Princess Diana’s niece – who was celebrating her nuptials to George Woodhouse.
