Meghan Markle shamed for Invictus outfit

We never thought we’d live to see the day that a possible future royal would wear ripped jeans. But we also never thought we’d see the day that Prince Harry would settle down. Meghan Markle proved us wrong on both counts.

Meghan Markle shamed for Invictus outfit

The couple made their first official appearance together this weekend at the Invictus Games in Toronto. On Saturday, Markle wore a classy maroon dress, so on Monday — Day 3 of the games — she toned it down with a much more casual look. And some people aren’t too pleased.

The Suits star strolled the streets and watched the games in a $185 Misha Nonoo white button-down shirt called the Husband (hint, hint!). She wore the loose-fitting shirt half-tucked into a pair of Mother’s Love Gun skinny jeans ($114), which feature one ripped knee. She accessorized with Italian leather tan flats by Sarah Flint ($495), the Day Market Tote from Everlane ($165), and Percy shades by British brand Finlay & Co. ($180).

Some are loving that her look is relatable and affordable, while others feel someone dating a member of the royal family should never be dressed so casually — especially for her first public appearance with the prince.

“I think she would have wanted to look smarter in keeping with who she hopes to be — obviously not bred to be a Royal more a commoner like the rest of us!” someone wrote on Facebook. “There are people in the world who have to wear ripped clothes as they are too poor to buy new clothes. Then you have those with more money than sense who buy ripped clothes and think it’s fashionable,” wrote another. A third commenter called the outfit a “Big Mistake.”
