Completely missed the ball with the previous thread so hope this thread is easy enough to find!
I was getting all stressed when I realised there was no link at the end of the last thread. Phew!
I'm not convinced red and purple work together for the DoS today but love them individually and she's just glowing.
I thought The Favourite was an interesting film, unexpected in several places in a couple of different ways. It certainly made a refreshing change to see three female leads and none of them focused on a man.
Found ya (also I NC'd during the last thread so I'm not really a newbie)
Hello! I like the red and the purple. The colour blocking is bang on trend. I agree that the bag isn’t right though. Meghan needs a satin clutch bag but the Gladstone bag might be keeping her hospital notes in. If her pregnancy is going to continue until May then I hope she has an elective c-section
I’ve been trying to do the sums (based on DD1’s mid-May due date and when I would have had the first scan) and I think they were a bit preemptive announcing the pregnancy in Australia if she’s really not due until end of April. I guess she will have had access to more early scans than the rest of us though!
Hello! have pointed out the colour combo was a favourite of Diana’s...
CreakyBlinder was your former name also based on a TV programme?
Vamilla - do you really think that the DoS is carrying her hospital notes around with her? Surely at any twinge she will be whisked to the Portland, where they have all her info to hand. And if she is admitted somewhere else in an emergency (like Samantha Cameron in Cornwall), they will phone the Portland and get everything that they need immediately?
Or a lackey is charged with carrying stuff around the notes - but think of the tabloid fodder if they were inadvertently left somewhere publicly accessible
So from the last thread we have:
- Meghan is 6 months gone
- Meghan only has 7 weeks to go
- Meghan is due end April/early May
They can't all be true!
I think early April, myself. She hasn't got that 'developing own gravitational field' look yet... obviously that is totally non-scientific and a lighthearted guess, before I get shouted at!
Oh found you! Phew!
MM looks marvellous- what a stunningly lovely woman she is. Beautiful colours and I agree that the bag is not quite right.
I really admire her poise given the horrible media coverage. She's a trooper.
that's one huge bump for six month,
I think MM is well into her 3rd trimester vamila is right ,
I started getting my pregnancy mask , patches on my cheeks at around 30 weeks. In some photos you can see MM has them high on her cheeks.
"The Favourite is all based on fact."
Actually there is not a shred of evidence that Queen Anne was sexually involved with anyone except her husband.
There is no doubt whatsoever that she had a very close relationship with the Duchess of Marlborough, or that Abigail Masham supplanted Sarah as the Queen's favourite. But to leap from a very close and long standing friendship to not one but two lesbian relationships is merely artistic licence on the part of the film-makers.
Hi Gals, I’m back. Could not resist commenting on Megs in red and purple. Finally she is getting her colour on.
As said, bag is an odd choice. Perhaps they had a very early start, and she grabbed what she thought was a red bag, then noticed it was tan.
Speaking of tan and colour, ( sorry very bad segue); don’t H&M look like they’ve been away and got some sun? I suspect they had an New Year / early Jan babymoon in the Caribbean or something.Harry definitely looks like he’s got a tan.
In a larger version of that photo from ktay, you can see Meghan has a tan line from sunglasses next to her eye. I think actually it could be a ski tan. ( Meghan probably just spectating on a nice sunny terrace up a mountain)
I like the bag actually. But not with this outfit. She's got the bright purple and red already, not convinced a random brown is really right. Hell, bright yellow would almost work better! .
When I checked Madaboutmeghan, the way my computer showed the images I saw just her face and the coat collar before the dress. the red is just stunning on her. She needs to wear that exact shade a lot more often. It really is gorgeous.
I've always been convinced the "in the spring" for baby due date was early early spring. I think March or early April.
I see what you mean Curly. Do you think she’s been borrowing Princess Anne’s Adidas sunnies?
The bag doesn’t go. She looks like she’s grabbed a few random things at the last minute.
So glad you came back.
Re a holiday - I also thought Meghan had a lot more freckles than normal and a very healthy glow.
My post was the last one of the last thread. Could someone check back and answer my question re tights please?
PS thank you QueenoftheAndals for the new thread.
I forgot; thanks for the new thread @Queen and keeping the royal style and Gossip going through thick & thin.
So if Megs announced at 12 weeks ish in mid October, so she’s 6 months now. How huge Is she going to be at term.?
(Also what will she be clutching when the head engages?) I always felt like the baby was going to fall out by that point.
It doesn't look like she's wearing tights and I can't really blame her - they can be uncomfortable at the best of times, let alone when you've got a huge bump!
