She continued: “I think that she's such a beautiful, strong and wonderful woman. So, it was such an honor.” The Duchess of Sussex stepped out alongside her husband in style during Christmas Day service at Sandringham. Meghan, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the spring, wore a deep blue midi dress and long coat by the British designer. The 37-year-old Duchess completed her look with a matching fascinator and clutch. Victoria is no stranger to talking about the Duchess’ style.
