This new valorization of Kate is racially inflected, because Britain’s most durable template of respectable womanhood—the “English rose”—is much less accessible to anyone foreign or dark-skinned. The language used to indicate Meghan’s blackness has been noted by some writers, even as it fails to register with many white Britons: She is “exotic,” “urban,” “straight outta Compton.” The author Afua Hirsch told NPR that mixed-race people see in the coverage of Meghan “very colonial narratives about how we should be so grateful that we were allowed in.” But this “English rose” framing is not an unalloyed benefit for those anointed as the “right” kind of women, either. If minority and working-class women are attacked for being unruly and ungrateful—for not knowing their place—their wealthier white sisters are, in the feminist theorist Catharine MacKinnon’s description, dismissed as “effete, pampered, privileged, protected, flighty, and self-indulgent.”

The pro-Meghan side has also embraced the culture war. She has been presented as a symbol of change—the first person of color in the royal family, an avowed feminist, a divorcée, and a woman with a successful career of her own. But as Nesrine Malik, the author of We Need New Stories, has argued, the radicalism of an actor marrying an aristocrat has often been overstated as a marker of progress. “When black and brown voices heralded the Meghan-Harry wedding as some sort of watershed moment on race it was, to use a problematic word, problematic,” she wrote. Inevitably, there are those who argue that any criticism of Meghan must be driven by racism. Although some of it undoubtedly is, Britain also has a long tradition of deeming royal women unsuitable— yet pointing this out is taken as denialism and white obliviousness.

As a result, much current commentary reads less like scrutiny of the specific situation at hand and more like artillery barrages in a proxy war. The real subject is anxiety over female emancipation and women’s roles in public life. In this framing, any praise for one duchess must be a negative commentary on the other. To be pro-Meghan is to be anti-Kate, and vice versa. Everyone is invited to pick a side, as if choosing a sports team. It is part of a broader trend where political discussions morph into something closer to battles between fandoms.

The trouble with a culture war—the reason there’s never a cease-fire—is that everyone gets what they want from it. One side prides itself on “defending traditional values,” speaking the plain truth about snowflake-Millennial duchesses and sticking up for the Queen (What did she do to deserve this?). The other sees itself as championing diversity and progressive values, standing up to racism and calling out the excesses of the media. Television and radio programs get inflammatory debates; participants burnish their in-group membership; big political arguments are thrashed out on-screen alongside pictures of attractive celebrities in lovely clothes.

Palace Forced to Deny Bullying of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by Prince William and Kate Middleton

Shows of royal fraternal unity have been rare enough in recent days, however, on Monday Prince William and Prince Harry united against their common enemy: the press.

Royal press officers leapt into action—a mere 11 hours after it appeared online—to deny a story in the U.K. paper of record, The Times, alleging that Harry and Meghan took their momentous decision to quit the royal family after “two years” of being “bullied” and “told their place” by other senior royals, including Prince William.

The Times was the clear target of the statement released this morning by Buckingham Palace, just hours before the brothers were due to gather with their father and grandmother for crunch talks at Sandringham.

It said, on behalf of the brothers: “Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between The Duke of Sussex and The Duke of Cambridge. For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.”

The Times also reported in a second story, which is not apparently being contested, that the decision to quit was being driven by Meghan, who told her husband “This isn’t working for me.”

The article disputed by the palace alleged that the couple felt pushed out of the royal family by Kate Middleton and Prince William’s “bullying attitude.”

The Times says that a source commented that the Cambridges were “not very friendly… quite early on they decided, right, ‘We are going to tell these people their place and we are going to push them away.’”

The source said: “If you are Meghan and Harry and you have had two years of constantly being told your place, constantly bullied as they would see it, constantly being told what you can’t do, Meghan has been thinking, ‘This is just nuts. Why would anyone put up with this?’”

The Queen has called the Prince of Wales, Prince William, and Prince Harry to talks at her country house in Sandringham today. Meghan is expected to dial in to the discussion from Canada, where she fled after spending just a few days in England after their six-week sabbatical in North America.

The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, will not be attending the meeting. Harry’s 98-year-old grandfather, who was hospitalized over Christmas, is said to have taken a heavy fall while showering in recent weeks.

Philip is said to have reacted by saying “What the hell are they playing at?” when told Harry and Meghan had decided to quit the royal family.

While officials are playing down the prospect of a deal being announced today, the Queen has made it known that the Sussexes’ future should be settled within days, not weeks.

The Sussexes want to divide their time between Britain and Canada, step back from royal duties, keep their titles, and withdraw from pooled media arrangements, but keep much of their funding and Frogmore Cottage, the house in Windsor that was controversially renovated for $3 million at taxpayers’ expense.

Sources have told The Daily Beast that Prince Charles will not agree to such terms and there has been a steady hardening of media and public opinion in the U.K. against Harry and Meghan, which could be exacerbated if they retain financial privileges.

What Not to Wear: Work Holiday Party

This topic came up recently as my coworkers and I discussed what we are wearing to the Camden holiday party. Since fashion trends come and go, I wanted to share a basic guide as to what is appropriate for a holiday party involving your boss and coworkers. The first thing to consider is whether or not a dress code is mentioned on the invitation. For example, ours simply states “no jeans”. Jeans aside, there are so many options for clothing to choose from. You could go dressy or business casual or even silly by wearing an “ugly Christmas sweater”. Make sure when you are planning your ensemble you know the restrictions and requirements for attire. The next thing would be to take into consideration the location of the event. Going to a luxury bar in Washington, DC you may want to wear a cocktail dress. If you are going to Dave and Busters, then pants may be a better option. If the location is a restaurant, then you may not have any idea what to wear. I suggest looking at pictures from the past 2-5 years to see what the majority wore. This will help make you feel more comfortable, and prevent you from being the only “ugly” sweater in a crowd of sequin dresses. Who is attending can be vital for what you wear. I highly recommend that steering clear of your most revealing top is crucial when your Regional Vice President is around. Keep up appearances can sometimes help when promotion time comes around. You also want to remember, these are the people you work with, not your high school bff or your family. My favorite things to wear at holiday parties are usually classic items. There will be photos taken, and that peplum top may look good in 2015, but when you look back 10 years from now when styles have changed, you may be amongst your coworkers saying, “What was I thinking?” On the flipside, this could be your time to break out of your shell. At Camden, we all wear the same business clothing provided by the same website. Now is our time to wear what we don’t normally do on a daily basis. Those heels you have been saving for a special occasion or that dress that still has a tag on it could be your ticket to a show stopping outfit. These are simply suggestions, and what works for one person may not work for your body.Our holiday party is this week, so I am curious to see what my colleagues wear. What is your favorite holiday party look?

Holiday Party Etiquette: Amal Clooney Demos the Difference Between Black Tie and Formal

Holiday season, aka the most wonderful time of the year, is here. What’s less than wonderful, though, is the “What do I wear?” panic when faced with an onslaught of confusing party dress codes. To prepare for the round of champagne-fueled festivities ahead, we turned to the experts — and Amal Clooney’s head-turning style — to figure out exactly what to wear for each occasion.

First, we had to know: How crucial is it to abide by the dress code after you’ve accepted the invite? “For weddings, black ties, and business occasions, do not mess with the dress code. Holiday parties that are social give you more leeway,” answers Lizzie Post, co-host of Awesome Etiquette on American Public Media’s podcast and great-great granddaughter of etiquette icon Emily Post. She also reminds us not to overshadow the host, especially when the event is in celebration of someone specific.

VIDEO: This Is How Kate Middleton Dresses for a Christmas Party

RELATED: Holiday Gifts for Your Sleek and Chic BFF

With that in mind, below are 8 holiday party dress codes defined by the professionals themselves.

Black Tie

Black tie attire requires tuxedos for men, but for women, it’s all about the hemline, which is why Clooney opted for a floor-length Maison Margiela piece at the 2015 Met Gala (above). “Ninety percent of the time black tie means a formal gown and you should be looking at something that is floor-length,” Post explains, despite today’s preference for knee-length dresses. “We do say a cocktail dress is OK, but it should be very formal. It can’t be just some jersey knit, no-wrinkle type thing. You need to dress it up, especially if you decide to go short.”

Seydoux puts it in layman’s terms: “Black tie means you need to be fancy. You need to have a beautiful long dress, maybe ball gown.” Troy Williams, an L.A.-based event planner who has staged parties for the Academy Awards and Golden Globes, says this dress code gives you the freedom to go long and whip out the good jewelry. “This is your Met Gala, like the top of the dressing chain, the top of the heap,” he says.

Tis the Season! Chase and I love to go to Christmas parties, and we can’t help but wear our best tacky Christmas attire. Over the last seven year, we’ve worn the gamut of Christmas clothing, including crazy accessories and vintage pieces. This year, we were invited to one of the largest annual gatherings we’ve ever been to, with food that would knock you over. Passed appetizers, custom bevvies and even an S’mores station! Chase and I wore some fun, comfortable pieces, but if you’re searching for tackyChristmass attire ideas, take a peek at my favorites below!

1. Ugly Christmas Sweaters

A total classic. Raid thrift stores, hit up amazon, or dig through your mom’s closet to find your favorite color, style or jingling knit. There are some real gems out there… I challenge you to find a new one!

2. Accessorize with Jingle Bell Antlers or Light Up Hats!

Grab any accessories you have, and combine them! Light up necklaces from the dollar store, your children’s funky santa hats, or these terrible, wonderful christmas tree glasses. Combine several pieces in a fun photo booth or go for as many as you can!

3. All Out-Decor

Some of my favorite tacky christmas outfits have been the strangest. Guests have shown up tangled in christmas lights, covered in gift bows or outrageous turtlenecks they found at Walmart. Each year I love to see the new combinations. If you only have one item that suits, show it off!

4. Christmas Jammies!

One year, I asked my guests to show up wearing Christmas PJs. I saw plaids, fair aisles, robes, onesies and even plain reds and greens topped with antlers and christmas lights. By far, the most comfortable of these has been my 2015 fair aisle reindeer Christmas onesie. Pockets, a hood and a full zip! I may not have slipper to the party, but I sure was feelin’ good!

5. Follow a Tacky Christmas Theme with Friends

Find any holiday theme and tell all your friends to follow suit. Whether it’s Santa, Frosty or even nutcrackers, friends are bound to surprise you with their creativity, and it’s always fun to see a running theme threaded throughout the party!

6. Class Up The Joint

Don’t have tacky attire? Don’t worry!! Effortlessly class up the joint with a LBD (Little Black Dress) and your brand new Louboutin heels! 🙂 I can’t believe the only photo I got of my lovely host was blinking… but nevertheless, she’s such a doll, and hosts quite the Christmas soiree!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry carried out a very appropriately festive engagement today – joining youth helpline The Mix for a volunteer Christmas party in support of their mental health campaign, Heads Together.


The day marks the Cambridges’ final official engagement of 2016. It’s a nice one to close the year with, as Heads Together has been a focal point for the young royals this year. The royal trio were all smiles upon arrival. Prince Harry has just enjoyed a romantic few days in London with girlfriend Meghan Markle, which included Christmas tree shopping and a theatre trip.

Meanwhile, the Cambridges are looking forward to Christmas with the Middletons in Bucklebury. Camilla Tominey reports Carole Middleton has been busy planning a Boxing Day shoot at the Yattendon estate in Thatcham, near the Middleton family home.

More on the work carried out by The Mix:
‘Life’s tough, we know that. It can throw a lot your way and make it hard to know what the hell to do with it all. So, welcome to The Mix. Whether you’re 13, 25, or any age in between, we’re here to take on the embarrassing problems, weird questions, and please-don’t-make-me-say-it-out-loud thoughts you have. We give you the information and support you need to deal with it all. Because you can. Because you’re awesome. We’ll connect you to experts and your peers who’ll give you the support and tools you need to take on any challenge you’re facing – for everything from homelessness to finding a job, from money to mental health, from break-ups to drugs.
We’re a free and confidential multi-channel service. That means that you choose how you access our support, without the worry of anyone else finding out. Whether it be through our articles and video content online or our phone, email, peer to peer and counselling services – we put the control in your hands. You can even volunteer with us too. We want to be the first place young people turn to get support. Sometimes what you’re told at school or at home just doesn’t cut it. We’re here whenever you need us, wherever you are. We can ensure you have all the best information to make the right choices for yourself. Life is hard, but support doesn’t have to be. We’ve got this.’
The Mix is passionate about applying a multi-faceted approach to helping young people with issues that often feel too embarrassing or overwhelming to discuss. Thanks to their digital support services, countless under-25s have availed of their help. Their vision is to be the first point of contact for young people, providing them with the knowledge that “with the right skills and opportunities, you can take on anything life throws your way”. It’s a very empowering and encouraging statement for anyone to hear.

There were several elements to the day, beginning when William, Kate and Harry joined an annual general meeting hosted by youth support service, The Mix, to celebrate the volunteers and counsellors who support people through tough times in their lives.

Next, the royals had the opportunity to see the organisation’s work first hand and participate.

The Duchess joined a live online chat about counselling with volunteers.

Prince William and Prince Harry will each join a group breakout session where counsellors and volunteers will share knowledge and receive training on dealing with a range of issues, with a focus on supporting people who are suicidal and helping young people coping with homelessness.
The royals chatted with young people who shared their experiences.

During the party, Their Royal Highnesses kicked off The Mix Annual Awards by presenting the Volunteer of the Year Award to George Yeorghaki. It’s been a special year for The Mix and the other organisations involved in the Heads Together initiative; to mark this, volunteers from all the charity partners were invited.
More from Simon Perry’s story:
‘Volunteer George Yeorghaki also spent some time with the royals. “It was good to see them getting involved,” he says. “We spoke about the stigma around mental health and volunteering and getting more people to volunteer. At The Mix young people can contact us and talk about any issue they want to talk about.” The trio took part in making decorations and building gingerbread houses and met with those doing workshops and talks on homelessness, suicide prevention and counselling. He adds of the royals, “They have total understanding about the issues around mental health and the importance of trying to raise it in the public eye. They have huge passion and understanding of what we need to do to raise mental health up the agenda.”

Charity of the Year 2017, Virgin Money London Marathon – Heads Together campaign partners – are working together to tackle the taboo on talking about everyday mental health, so that people feel they can access support when they need it during tough times without fear of being judged.

A very festive-looking Duchess selected the by Vanessa Seward for the engagement. Kate has been experimenting with a host of new labels this year, and Vanessa Seward is a prestigious addition to her wardrobe. Having previously designed for Chanel and Azzaro her eponymous line is centred around chic, minimalist, classic basics. Born in Argentina in 1969, Vanessa grew up in London, later moving to Paris with her mother. Following the 2014 launch of her brand she noted: “It has always been one of my wildest dreams to start my own label.”
The combination of red and green makes the dress an excellent seasonal piece – and I’m sure the Duchess chose it with such an occasion in mind. It is described as “cut from a silk-jacquard woven with a subtle pattern. This knee-length design has a button-fastening neckline and side slit pockets. Cinch your waist with the tie-fastening sash”. As of writing, the dress is available in limited sizing at Net-A-Porter where it is reduced from $1,245 to $623.

The Telegraph shared their thoughts on the look:
‘While Seward might be a new designer for the Duchess, the dress’s delicate floral print and midi-length are tried-and tested style signatures. Indeed the last time we saw Kate in a dress like this was the L.K Bennett ‘Cersei’ dress which she chose for a visit to the Natural History Museum less than a month ago. The assumption that the dress has been bought on Net-A-Porter.com also implies that this is a piece Kate may have chosen from the comfort of her sofa, perhaps with a little help from her stylist Natasha Archer. Just last week the Duchess wore a cashmere jumper by Iris and Ink, the in- house label of TheOutnet.com, and she has worn several pieces purchased on MatchesFashion.com in the past. As reports have suggested that the Duke and Duchess won’t be attending the Royal family’s Christmas Day celebrations at Sandringham, and will instead be with the Middletons in Bucklebury, Berkshire, it’s unlikely that we’ll get to see how the Duchess decides to tackle Christmas Day dressing this year. But with this holly-like print and a Santa-style belt, she’s at least offering up some fun-yet-sophisticated festive fashion inspiration.’
The always insightful What Kate Wore noted actress Drew Barrymore recently wore the dress too. to view a short video of Drew modelling the piece.
It’s not the first time the Duchess and Drew have shared a fondness for the same sartorial piece. When Kate wore the colourful Tory Burch Floral Mesh Gown in Bhutan, several readers quickly noted Drew wore it that night to the annual Bergh Ball in New York.

Kate teamed the dress with her McQueen Glossed-Leather belt.

Meghan Markle’s Christmas Outfit Looked So Different Than Kate Middleton’s

Meghan Markle just spent her first holiday as a duchess and her Christmas service ensemble did not disappoint. While Kate Middleton sported a festive burgundy coat dress (to no one’s surprise), the newest member of the royal family dressed up her baby bump in monochromatic navy blue. Although it was quite a different look than what you’re used to seeing Middleton dressed in, Meghan Markle’s Christmas outfit was so typical of her everyday style.

On Tues., the royals attended Christmas Day service together at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk. It wasn’t the first time Markle joined in on the annual tradition; last year, she tagged along as Prince Harry’s fiancée. Wearing a tan wrap coat and chestnut hat, the duchess-to-be even did her first public curtsy when the Queen arrived. Now, one year later, she and Prince Harry are expecting the 92-year-old’s next grandchild.

And Markle did not pass up the opportunity to show off that growing bump. She dressed for the occasion in a V-neck maternity midi dress and a long coat in the same hue, both by British designer Victoria Beckham. She, of course, accessorized with a matching, feather-clad fascinator and the most trend-forward black leather powder box. To top it off, the duchess traded in her usual pumps for sleek slouchy boots.

Markle’s sister-in-law and fellow royal trendsetter Kate Middleton has traditionally worn more festive looks to Christmas Day service. In 2017, for instance, when Markle played it safe in beige, Middleton dressed in a holiday-ready red-and-green plaid coat dress and an eye-catching fur hat.

This year, she opted for a wine-colored coat dress that is thought to be custom-made by her favorite designer, Catherine Walker, who was once a favorite of Princess Diana’s, too. Middleton accessorized her look with a halo-style Jane Taylor headband adorned with a black felt bow.

While the mom of three looked very Christmassy, the mom-to-be stuck with her usual dark, neutral palette and sophisticated silhouettes. This navy shade is proving to be the duchess’ go-to hue. She wore a navy Stella McCartney dress and matching Gillian Anderson coat to the Invictus Games in Oct., and during her 16-day tour of New Zealand and Australia, Markle seemed to sport exclusively dark blue: a sleeveless midi by Aussie designer Dion Lee, a ruffled Antonio Berardi frock, and more.

Her most recent look is exactly what you might have expected for a classic Meghan Markle holiday outfit. Although subtle, the ensemble will certainly go down in history.

Honoring a decades-old tradition, Meghan Markle joined Prince Harry and his family for Christmas Day church services in Sandringham this morning. The Duchess marked her first official holiday as a royal by walking to St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham along with the Cambridges, Queen Elizabeth, and Harry’s many relatives.

For the festive outing, the Duchess of Sussex chose a navy blue coat over a matching dress paired with boots, gloves (which she carried), and a hat embellished with two feathers.

Meghan chose to wear her hair up today, and added a little sparkle to her look with small stud earrings earrings.

It’s a markedly different outfit from Meghan’s choice last year, when she wore a camel-colored wrap coat with a darker brown hat and boots.

But of course, this year she’s dressing her bump. Meghan and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together sometime in the spring of next year. While Kensington Palace has yet to release a specific due date, royal reporters are predicting the baby could come as early as late March.

Following church, Meghan and Harry will return home to the Sandringham house with the rest of the Windsor crew for a turkey lunch in the Red Drawing room. Later in the day at 3 p.m., the whole group will reportedly gather around the television to watch the Queen’s annual Christmas message. One thing that will be missing from Meghan’s first royal Christmas Day? Opening presents. That will have happened on Christmas Eve, in a nod to the Windsor’s German heritage.

The Duchess of Sussex looked incredible at Sandringham on Christmas Day as she headed to church with her husband Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family for a festive service. Meghan, 37, who is pregnant with her first child, dazzled the crowd wearing a coat and boots by Victoria Beckham.

She wore her long raven-hair in her trademark bun and subtle makeup highlighted her glowing skin. The royal has never looked better and certainly had that elusive pregnancy ‘glow’. Her first child will be born in the Spring and we can’t wait to see pictures of the new royal baby.

Meghan dazzled in a Victoria Beckham coat

Meghan’s outfit is a little different to the design she sported last year – not long after her engagement to Harry was announced. The former Suits star rocked a cherry-red Club Monaco dress with a chic camel coat by luxury Canadian brand Sentaler.

We are still dreaming of her lovely outerwear staple – which was made from baby alpaca wool and retailed for £986 on the company’s website. The US-born beauty completed her ensemble with a brown hat by royal favourite Philip Treacy, matching brown Stuart Weitzman boots and a Chloe ‘Pixie’ bag, which you can still buy for £1400.

Duchess Meghan has worn some breathtaking outfits this year, but we think our favourite had to be the chic black dress she wore to the the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in November, which turned out to be a bit of a bargain! The classic design was actually from Marks & Spencer and no, we still can’t get over it! The Double Crepe Bodycon dress costs just £49.50, and what’s more, it’s currently online in all sizes – and even comes in a festive red shade too. HELLO! spoke to a spokesperson at M&S who said: “We thought Meghan looked beautiful in our M&S Collection dress. We are absolutely delighted she is a fan of M&S and the British high street.” We couldn’t agree more!
