Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is a fashion icon in her own right but received negative feedback after wearing an olive-colored dress to Prince Louis' christening.


As can be seen in the video clip shared by Kensington Palace, Meghan chose a Ralph Lauren creation which she paired with a Stephen Jones hat and matching high heeled shoes.

Her hair was swept back into an elegant bun, and Meghan carried a grey clutch bag. However, a critic known as Andronicus described it as 'another ugly dress and horrible colour.'

He added: 'Consistently very negative colour choice by this Duchess of Sussex.' Read more on our Twitter, @amomama_usa


Inquisitr also pointed out that the couple's outfits didn't match and added that her dress would have been less 'drab' if Prince Harry coordinated his suite to her dress.

Instead, he wore a dark blue suit with a white shirt and a vibrant light blue tie with white polka dot detail. According to Daily Mail, Meghan's go-to boatneck style dress let her down this time.

The dress also featured a belted waist and 3/4 length sleeves. This was Meghan's first appearance in a Ralph Lauren dress since joining the Royal Family two months ago.

Fans who want to copy her style could opt for the more affordable $65 Silk Fred olive boatneck dress for a fraction of the cost, or a Le Redoute dress which retails for $78.

Apart from the criticism, Prince Louis' christening marked the first time Prince Harry, 33, and the 36-year-old Meghan were seen with their 11-week-old nephew.

It is also the first time that Prince William and Duchess Catherine appeared in public with all three their children and the family-of-five made of a regal sight.

Catherine wore a white Alexander McQueen creation, her go-to designer, and completed the outfit with delicate pearl earrings and a Jane Taylor headpiece.
