Ever since Prince Harry confirmed his relationship with Meghan Markle last November, all eyes have been on the couple’s burgeoning relationship. However, it’s not just their reported upcoming engagement that we've kept a close watch on, but Markle’s extremely covetable style. An expert in effortless dressing, whether she’s on the red carpet or an airport runway, the potential future royal always looks elegant and chic.
With Markle and her Prince making their first public appearance earlier this week, we decided it was high time we dissected her enviable wardrobe...
If In Doubt, Wear A White Shirt
When it comes to off-duty style, the Suits star seems to have a wardrobe stacked with white shirts. Whether it’s courtside at Wimbledon or out and about in New York, Meghan has turned to this classic and versatile piece on a plethora of occasions.
Most notably, Markle wore a white shirt for her trip to the Invictus Games with Prince Harry - their first public appearance as a couple. Paired with ripped jeans by Mother Denim and tan Sarah Flint flats, at an original glance the shirt seems fairly ordinary. However, as observant Markle fans have pointed out there is much more too the actress choosing the Misha Nonoo shirt than initially thought. First up, the designer Misha Nonoo is the close friend of Markle’s who apparently introduced her to prince Harry via her ex-husband Alexander Gilkes, an Eton alumni and friend of the royals. Secondly, the shirt in question is dubbed ‘the husband’, pointing to their reported upcoming engagement.

Embrace British Brands
Since Markle started dating Prince Harry her wardrobe has had somewhat of a British makeover. Back in February when Markle was visiting her royal boyfriend in London she stopped by a flower stall in High Street Ken wearing two quintessentially British brands: a Barbour jacket and Hunter wellies. Similarly, Mulberry is Markle’s first choice when it comes to handbags, and she is regularly snapped in her favourite West London based Finlay & Co sunnies.
Plus, following in the footsteps of the Middleton sisters, Markle turned to London-based Erdem for her dress when attending the wedding of one of Harry’s close school friends in Jamaica back in March.
Keep A Simple Colour Palette
Much like her onscreen alter ego, Markle tends to shun loud prints and stick to neutral colours and sleek silhouettes. She knows what she likes and sticks it, especially when it comes to evening wear when she is often spotted sporting dark maroon, classic red or understated black. ‘I like monochromatic and tonal dressing and I don't generally wear prints, and neither does Rachel now. Rachel wears a lot of separates - she's really the only character on the show who you'll see mix and match wardrobe basics like a normal person would,’ Markle told Glamour.
