“For this money, you can feed families”: the network criticizes Meghan Markle's luxury image during a visit to Harlem

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

The visit of 40-year-old Meghan Markle and 37-year-old Prince Harry to New York became one of the most talked about events of the past week. The live appearance of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in public was almost a flashback from the time of their royal tours, when Meghan and Harry had not yet resigned. Over the course of several days, the couple took part in many events, so the audience had a lot to discuss. And one visit of the couple caused a very violent reaction on social networks. It's about the arrival of Megan and Harry in Harlem and meeting with local schoolchildren.

The fact is that in public in this rather poor area of New York, Markle appeared in a cashmere Loro Piana coat worth $ 5,840 and trousers of the same brand for $ 1,685. And the total cost of Megan's jewelry was about 387 thousand dollars (of course, this included jewelry that the duchess always wears, for example, her engagement ring, which is estimated at 350 thousand dollars, and a Cartier watch worth 23 thousand dollars).

Many netizens were outraged by Megan's fashionable choice for a trip to Harlem, because Loro Piana is one of the most luxurious and expensive brands preferred in respectable millionaire circles. In addition, it was almost 22 degrees outside that day, and there was definitely no need for a warm cashmere coat. It is worth noting that the vast majority of the children Meghan has met receive free meals at school, as their families are considered poor.

Incredible! For this money, you can feed dozens of families in that area!

Is she still considered an aristocrat?

In some publications, the image of Megan was compared with the image of Michelle Obama at the inauguration ceremony of US President Joe Biden. Recall that then the former first lady of the United States also appeared in a coat and trousers of a similar wine shade. True, her fashion choice was then praised, because Michelle supported the young black American designer Sergio Hudson.

So netizens did not appreciate this comparison either.

Michelle looks great. But Megan “look at me” Markle – not really,

– wrote one of the commentators.

However, someone liked this “repeat”.

She's cosplaying Michelle at the inauguration and I'm here to say it's flawless

– one of the users of the social network expressed his opinion.

While attending school, Megan read to the students her children's book “The Bench”, which she released this year. After that, she willingly posed for photographs with schoolchildren.
