    I don't love it. Her boobs look weird and the color is boring. Would look much better in a vibrant color IMO.

    This particular picture the gown looks nice, but if you peruse that tweeter’s other posts there are some that are not so flattering. One in particular, her belly looks very strange/lumpy.

    ETA: Hopefully I’m linking this correctly.

    Derek Momodu on Twitter

    ETA again: Could she be wearing a bulletproof vest under the gown?

    Wonder if they are betting in Vegas? Makes it all seem so much like a horse race.

    I’m thinking late March / early April. —Also, leaning towards a girl.

    I love the dual names some with great nicknames... like Dora or Doria, for Theodora?

    Frederick / Fredericka
    Daniel / Daniella
    Alexander / Alexandra
    Gerald / Geraldine
    Justin / Justine
    Phillip / Philippa
    Simon / Simone
    Theodore / Theodora
    Victor / Victoria

    IDK? Some kind of a smoothing undergarment? Looks, um, unified? As you mention, not so flattering.

    Absolutely approve of her longer sleeves & hemlines in this moderate Muslim nation!

    I “know” a couple who lives in Morocco. She must be in her fifties but she is in perfect shape. She wears tiny, flirty skirts. Her husband appears to be at least ten years younger.

    They love it there. It is cheap and they have all kinds of people that work for them as it is not expensive to employ cleaners and gardeners.

    I have not seen them this year but the people they visit here have traveled to visit an ill family member.

    Morocco is a very popular tourist destination

    She has the cutest face - no need for a bunch of makeup

    I saw Fergie’s wedding dress at the wax museum in London. I have no idea if it was the real one. It was stunning. It was embroidered with bees ( in white or cream. I forget fhe exact color of the dress)

    I still have my mom’s Geiger jackets; Swiss, I believe, warm boiled wool classic short jackets. I love them. Unfortunately, I don’t know what happened to my couple of 70’s Diane von Furstenburg (sp) wrap dresses. They were amazing. And one divine Halston simple evening dress went wayward, but that was definitely perfect for a young woman... I still have a sweet Laura Ashley dress from the late 80’s, I think. I wore just this year to an event. Timeless. Clothing was made to last, too.

    And I had platforms that I wore out. But come to find the company has been in business all this time... So, I got myself a couple pair of lower platforms from Korkease for warm weather dress up. Still as comfortable as ever.

    We hosted an exchange student from Morocco a few years back. He is a dentist now, his younger sister is a doctor.

    Morocco was controlled by France for decades, so women who look European or American -- lighter skin & hair -- have more leeway in dress.

    Still, her sleeve & hem length is appropriate professional dress as she represents the BRF overseas!

    Harry, of course, knows how to act as a Royal. I imagine they are given lessons on where to stand, what to say, etc, with their Royal meetings

    Has Meghan Markle adopted a British accent? - CNN Video

    I watched a video earlier this morning and was wondering myself if I heard a bit of a British accent? The video I watched of Meghan was really short and the sound quality wasn't so great so I couldn't really tell. I love, love, and love the British accent. I always have since I was a little girl. Growing up my uncle introduced me to his new girlfriend (now wife of 20 years) and I was so intrigued by her accent. I remember when I was 7 years old, I would often try to copy it. ha! It's just beautiful to me. :)

    She really does have such a pretty face. Here, she looks great.

    She needs to lose that bronzer contour thing and the misty mountain highlights. The pics in the red dress, it looked like someone started to ice the cake and left the job to take a phone call! She does not have high cheek bones, and her evening makeup accentuates it. Very distracting.

    Yes I think she's picked up a bit of a 'posh' accent but it's hardly surprisingly given who she's hanging out with!

    Is there a posh American accent? That's how I imagine it would sound.

    I've warmed to Megs a touch more seeing her looking fitting for a pregnant royal.
    The red and cream dresses are stunning and the looser tops are so very classy.

    I couldn't take to seeing her navel.
