Meghan commits major fashion blunder and fans are far from impressed

Must read

and are clearly enjoying their time in Nigeria, as they were snapped smiling and dancing at the Wuse Lightway Academy in the capital Abuja.

The couple are currently on a three-day visit to the West African country, having been invited by the Chief of Defence staff at last year’s Invictus Games in Germany.

They looked delighted as they were entertained by local children on their first engagement of the day, however Meghan’s long peach-coloured dress was less pleasing for royal fans online.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the floor-length sleeveless ‘Windsor’ dress by Heidi Merrick in Blush, accessorised with gold bangles and earrings but the hem of the garment was seen dragging on the ground.

One person commented on X: “How difficult is it to get things hemmed? I must be a genius as I have about the same height as Meghan and just a fraction of her budget or influence, yet manage to get things routinely tailored to fit.”

Another said: “That outfit is a disgrace, what is wrong with her”, while a third pointed out: “I agree, the dress is appalling. It doesn’t fit it hasn’t been fitted and it is inappropriate for the occasion.”

One X user added that in Nigeria it is currently 33C and 54 percent humidity, suggesting that the Sussexes have opted for comfort first and foremost.

Others suggested it was inappropriate for her to wear a dress that is semi-backless.

The couple landed in Abuja at 5am this morning and had a few hours rest at their hotel before arriving at their first activity at the Academy, with a packed schedule ahead of them.

During their time in Nigeria Harry and Meghan will also travel to Kaduna and Lagos before they head back to California on Monday.

Sport is one of the key themes of the trip as Harry’s own volleyball team will be playing a novelty match against the Chief of Defence’s team, and they will also watch a Giants of Africa basketball game.

The Duke and Duchess will spend time meeting with injured military veterans and the family members and loved ones of those killed in action, a cause Harry has shown his passion for with the Invictus Games.

In 2023 Nigeria competed in the Invictus Games for the first time, a particularly poignant moment for Meghan who is 43 percent Nigerian.
