Harry plays second violin on Meghan’s show
Their biggest asset is an import. Like Meghan, Kate is a commoner. Unlike Meghan, she’s a woman who seems happy with what she signed up for – untold wealth and a loving marriage in return for the promotion and support of the crown, not her own interests.
In New York City, I barely noticed Harry, except for the moment he unbuttoned his business shirt and went up to a hotel bar with some guys who looked like middle managers at Deloitte.
After his role as a juggler in Meghan’s 40th birthday video and the Time magazine cover photo – him putting his hands on his wife’s shoulders like a barber asking if she’s happy with his blowing wave – the Duke may have peaked.
Now that Meghan has the influence of marriage herself to command the public with mayors and the 9/11 commemorative photo ops, Harry is the accompanist on her pantomime Evita. He feels those days of Veep’s Distraught Gary factotum, makeup bag carrier and potential fall guy.
So all eyes were on the Duchess, who put on her best performance since the Oprah interview. The message: I’m interviewing for the job I want, not the job I have.
Clothes. All valued at $ 125,000. Fabulous understated cashmere coats, turtlenecks and boot cut pants, accessorized with Princess Diana’s Cartier watch and relaxed diamond highlights.
The fact that the outfits – which would have been chosen by the stylists behind that of Jennifer Aniston Morning wars wardrobe, can’t take the girl out of Hollywood, etc. – did not suit the hot New York weather, that says it all.
For Meghan, it’s all about optics. Her style has been compared to that of Michelle Obama. It looked like she wanted to be a different Obama. My American compatriots, I announce my candidacy.
A return to the Kennedys’ Camelot, Meghan’s white Valentino change for the Citizen Live concert closely followed other WAG leader Kate showcasing her own pins (and big forehand) in a tennis skirt.
Kate had a hit with US Open champion Emma Raducanu before returning to the post-pandemic red carpet at the premiere of No time to die in London.
And, wow. Her Jenny Packham sheer gold dress and bun was just as fashionable as Meghan’s chic president: I’m the future real queen.
Some think about the music while we wait for the Sussexes Netflix series: do the Windsorsors play second fiddle to strangers or does it take their heat away for entertainment?
