When the news came out that Harry had met Meghan, the world went a bit bonkers. Come November and the news we had all been expecting finally came, they were to be wed. Meghan has always had an influence in the fashion circle but the now royal has definitely followed in her sister-in-law’s footsteps with the Meghan effect.
Quite often copying a royal’s wardrobe comes with a price tag – although our Duchess has been known to wear the likes of Marks and Spencer – and I bet you don’t have the spare cash to get the exact pieces. Don’t worry I’m coming to your rescue, meet my latest Pinterest board ‘Meghan Markle royal fashion dupes‘
Top tip: Don’t try and recreate the look exactly the same. Use her looks to be inspired to recreate it with your own twist.
Look One: Invictus Games, 25 September 2017
One of my favourite Meghan looks of all time is last year (2017) at the Invictus Games in Toronto on 25 September. It was classic yet simple and oozed timeless chic. The occasion was their public debut and they appeared very much in love as they held hands heading into the games.
I’m kicking off with the most expensive outfit – but this has the most versatile pieces to add to your wardrobe! Keeping the look cool and casual, it would be perfect for the weekend or bank holiday.
From left to right: Pieces Oxford White Shirt at ASOS*, £22 | ASOS Latch Pointed Ballet Flats*, £14 | Dorothy Perkins Light Blue Ripped Knee Skinny Jeans*,
£30 £24 | Superdry Tan Metallic Reversable Tote Bag*, £40
Total cost of outfit: £100
A really simple way of mixing this look up is with the shirt, still keep it white but add a detailed sleeve or try swapping pointed tan flats to loafers. The main thing is to utilise what you already have in your wardrobe and for the pieces you don’t have invest in the classic, more staple items (like the white shirt).
Look Two: Arriving at Hotel the day before the Royal Wedding, 18 May 2018
Navy is definitely a colour perfect for all around – for all seasons, weather and occasions and this outfit from Meghan the day before her wedding is no exception! Perfect for a day at the office or team with a clutch and fascinator for a wedding. Once again showing us how simple can be elegant.

Total cost of outfit: £65
Look Three: Prince Charles 70th Garden Party, 22 May 2018
Newly-wed Meghan Markle is officially a royal and this also means conforming to the royal ways. Enter tights. Whilst it’s great she has embraced the royal dress code at least get the girl a pair which are a better shade! Whilst the dress alone costs nearly £600… *insert shocked face emoji here* you can easily get a similar look for less.
This look isn’t the easiest to find exact high street matches, so you do have to think outside the box but just think how much wear you could get out of the pieces that make up this ensemble – except for maybe the hat.
From left to right: Dorothy Perkins Petite Blush Pleat Neck Pencil Dress*,
£25 £20 | New Look Cream Wide Fit Nude Suedette Pointed Court Shoes*, £19.99 | Dorothy Perkins Blush Bar Top Clutch*, £15 | Debut at Debenhams Pink bow saucer fascinator, £39 £31.20
Total cost of outfit: £86.19
