Twinning in red: 'The Morning Show' host Kylie Gillies poses in the same outfit as Meghan Markle
A day after new photographs of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were released from when the Sussexes attended the One Young World summit in Manchester a few days before the death of Queen Elizabeth II, 'The Morning Show' host Kylie Gillies noted a point of similarity between the Duchess and herself.
In her Instagram post, Gillies can be seen twinning with Markle in a similar red top. The side-by-side photo collage features Gilies with co-host Larry Emdur imitating the posture and expression of the original photograph of Meghan and Prince Harry. "The Duke and Duchess of BS," she writes.
"The Duke and Duchess of BS. That’s my caption. Larry’s caption is: 'At least two men in this photo have played naked billiards in Vegas. And at least two women in this photo would do anything to get the keys to a Castle' 😂😂😂 I think @larryemdur ‘s caption wins," reads the caption. Gillies notes that they were "a few segments into today’s Morning Show when [they] realised the fashion similarities," adding that it then took the co-hosts several extra shots and images during "another three segments to get the pic right 😂."
While the Duchess of Sussex paired the red top with trousers in a similar shade, the anchor chose to pair it with a high-waisted purple skirt. The seemingly innocuous red outfit worn by Markle had earlier been subject to a "Who wore it better" debate after 'Sunrise' host Natalie Barr posted a side-by-side comparison image claiming the Duchess stole her look.
"Glad the courier got it to you in Manchester in time for the speech Megs! #happytoloan," quipped Barr. Markle, who donned the red outfit during the opening ceremony of the One Young World summit in Manchester last month, had also been criticized by many for the timing of the release of the official portrait which came merely a couple of days after the publication of an official picture of the royal family. Prince Harry and Meghan were strikingly absent from the photograph released by Buckingham Palace which featured the "New Fab Four" of King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, and the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate.
