Meghan Markle wears a modest $ 118 J. Crew dress after being shot at for a lavish private jet


Meghan Markle had a reserved look at Saturday's US Open final, but was still the center of attention when her best friend – Serena Williams – was defeated in the final.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, experienced a series of emotions as she cheered on the former number 1 in the world, 37, who fought Canadian Bianca Andreescu at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens.

Meghan opted for a subtle summer look and wore a denim shirt dress from American fashion retailer J.Crew, which is available for retail at a modest $ 118. To complete the outfit, she wore a light gray cardigan coat – also from J.Crew and worth a little more than $ 99 (GBP 80) – and a pair of aviator glasses.

During the tournament, Markle immediately got up to cheer Williams when she went out onto the pitch and was behind the star's husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The Duchess, who also watched Williams at Wimbledon in July, flew after the argument over her and her husband Prince Harry, who made four private jet trips in eleven days last month.

On August 6, they flew to Ibiza on Meghan's 38th birthday with a private jet. Days later, they flew to Nice on an $ 18 million Cessna plane known as the "pinnacle of luxury".

Sir Elton said he paid for the flights to his vacation home and "made a reasonable contribution" to a carbon footprint fund to offset the environmental impact.

The Duchess' trip to Manhattan also comes when the helpers insisted that the Duchess and her husband Prince Harry were too busy working on charitable projects to join the Queen in Balmoral this weekend.

The Sussexes were under attack for taking private flights after claiming they had a maximum of two children to avoid environmental damage.

Meghan flew out of London Heathrow and left Prince Harry and her four-month-old son Archie in Windsor – although a security team is said to be with her.

It is believed that she boarded either the 8.25am flight or the 9.00am flight from Heathrow.

The flight at 8.25am was more than 30 minutes behind schedule. It was supposed to arrive in New York at 11:05 a.m. local time, but arrived at 12:22 p.m. instead.

"It's a last minute trip," said a Times source on Friday. "Excited to support her friend and then come back."

There were also rumors that the Sussexes would join the monarch at Balmoral in the Scottish Highlands this week with their young son Archie.

But while most members of the royal family have traveled all the way to Aberdeenshire, Harry and Meghan actually have no plans to fly to Scotland.

Sources close to the couple insist that the decision should not be seen as a "nudge" – and Harry rarely goes to Queen Deeside's estate these days.

Earlier this week, Harry defended his use of private jets, claiming that he needed them for his family's safety – despite calling on the public to reduce their carbon footprint.

This week, he was flying to Amsterdam on schedule to promote Travalyst, a green tourism program.

Meghan stayed up to watch the semi-finals, which ended at 1:30 p.m. British time yesterday, and is said to have boarded a flight in London around 8:30 a.m.

A source said on page 6: "Serena asked her coach if Meghan would come when she won last night, and everyone is concerned because tennis players are superstitious and Serena lost when Meghan watched her at Wimbledon."

This is Meghan's first trip to New York since her baby shower, which Williams helped organize when she and her celebrity friends celebrated five nights in a penthouse for $ 70,000 a night.

The party, which caused unrest in the UK due to its breathtaking total bill of $ 405,000, was hosted by Williams and longtime friend Jessica Mulroney.

On this occasion, Meghan flew with her private friend Amal Clooney in a private jet to and from the United States, which paid for the 13-hour round-trip trip that cost $ 16,000 an hour.

Meghan first met Williams at a Super Bowl party in 2010, and it is believed that her friendship has developed rapidly through frequent phone calls and lyrics.

After Meghan became Prince Harry's girlfriend and then duchess, Meghan is said to have relied on Williams to advise on how to deal with the media.

Williams, who attended their wedding in May 2018, said last year that they "had known each other for a long time, but we've been really reliant on each other lately."
