Now that the Commonwealth event is nearly over, we have another treat ahead of us. Maxima in Indonesia!

In light of what happened on the previous thread, I'm going to take a leaf out of Elizabeth SMT Holmes' book and say critique the clothes and the styling but not the physical appearances of various royal women.

Thanks Queen!

Having seen a full length of Sophie's it's now my favourite of the day.

Sophie looks wonderful. As well as comfortable and confident.

Thank you your majesty grin

Though thought this was a beautiful shot of Meghan's cape in action

So many frocks today!
Kate - love her look today. The colour, the fit is great.

Sophie - love her dress - it fits well and the black panel prevents it from looking bridal

Meghan - the colour is great and the cape looks good in motion but in the close ups I'm not keen on the dress. It is a very "fitted" style - yet it hasn't been fitted to her - waist bunching issues and the bodice doesn't really suit her with the high neck and severe seam running from neck to waist.

Camilla - the opposite issue close ups look much better than the distance shots

I love the high neck of the cape and the way it and the hat frame her face.

Meanwhile Max has arrived in Jakarta in a dress that's not so much cold-shoulder as cold arm!

The cape plus the colour gives me a Robin Hood vibe. Capeless would have been better.

Spudlet Mon 09-Mar-20 15:45:01

@NoGravyForYou Ok, that shot may change my mind about the cape. That is a lovely picture! And I love that Harry’s jacket lining matches.

JayAlfredPrufrock Mon 09-Mar-20 15:45:55

I loved the iridescent shine on the flowers on Kate’s hat. And her up do was gorgeous.

Spudlet Mon 09-Mar-20 15:46:20

I love Max, but that dress is giving me major arm itches just looking at it.

frugalkitty Mon 09-Mar-20 15:46:23

Nice picture that shows the lining of Harry's suit matches Meghan's dress

Laniakea Mon 09-Mar-20 15:46:39

Sophie looks fab, really great!

I love a cloak, Meg’s doesn’t fit well; the colour is wonderful.

Kate is Kate - fits perfectly but hardly ground breaking (why fix it etc) ... are the earrings new? A loan from HMQ? Haven’t seen any good pictures yet.

NoGravyForYou Mon 09-Mar-20 15:48:51

Max's dress reminds me of a sundress I have, not sure how I feel about it.

Thanks Queen

frugalkitty Mon 09-Mar-20 15:49:19

Oh dear, Max.....I'm not a fan of cold shoulder anything so it's a miss for me.

@Spudlet yes, I'm not loving these capes that M has been wearing but it looks beautiful in that picture. I adore the colour she's wearing, I've been looking at several dresses in that colour for a wedding this summer.

frugalkitty Mon 09-Mar-20 15:52:43

Kate's earrings

MotherofPearl Mon 09-Mar-20 15:53:49

Looks like Max is also adopting namaste instead of handshakes. Makes sense I guess.

Are those earrings actual shells?!
