It’s been quite the year for Meghan Markle, from giving birth to baby Archie and taking him on the royal tour of southern Africa, to launching her own clothing edit with Smart Works, guest editing Vogue and waging a legal battle against the tabloids with husband Harry, it’s fair to say she’s been in the headlines quite a bit.
Whatever the media threw at her this year, Markle’s superfans made sure she felt their presence by showing up to every public appearance, making every item she wore in public a sell-out success and commenting on, liking and sharing everything posted on @sussexroyal.
If you know someone who got more excited about Meghan and Harry’s wedding than their own, watched Suits before the name Meghan Markle was ever associated with British royalty and can spot a royal re-wear faster than you can say ‘The Tig’ – here are some of Meghan’s favourite beauty, fashion and homeware pieces you should buy them this Christmas.

AKA Meghan Markle's favourite wine. In fact, she loves it so much she named her blog after it. She explained the meaning behind the name on The Tig website; 'So there I am, with very minimal wine knowledge and I take a sip of this wine. It wasn't just red or white — suddenly I understood what people meant by the body, legs, structure of wine. It was an ah-ha moment at its finest. For me, it became a "Tig" moment — a moment of getting it. From that point on, any new awareness, any new discovery or "ohhhhh, I get it!" moment was a "Tig" moment.'
