It’s been just over one month since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their royal exit — and from the looks of it, the pair is happily adjusting. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently shared a casual family moment of celebrating their son Archie’s first birthday, offering a peek into their new life. But while said life may feel be more down-to-earth — complete with chambray shirts and messy buns — it’d be remiss the say the public won’t think fondly of their more formal moments as royals. Meghan Markle’s most iconic outfits have cemented the star into place as a modern fashion darling, and there’s no doubt her upcoming ensembles will be just as good, if not better. And as someone who has gone from a Hollywood celebrity to a member of the royal family — with the outfits to reflect it — the Duchess’ sartorial evolution is one worth watching.
When news first broke that Markle was in a relationship with Prince Harry in 2016, all eyes turned on her, and her style. Now, with a virtually infinite list of appearances under her belt, Markle has not only refined her style over the years, but she’s also become a key player in bringing attention to brands and designers of all sizes.
