Whether she’s on press duties or hanging out with the Queen, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is on her way to becoming a bonafide style icon.
Royal expert, Katie Nicholl, recently told Entertainment Tonight that Meghan’s glamorous and often bespoke Royal wardrobe is estimated to be valued at over £750,000 (NZ$1.5M). However, her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is known for recycling her wares and accessories, and we can already see the new Duchess doing the same.
“I’m quite sure we will see Meghan step out of the outfits that she has worn before,” said Nicholl. “When you are buying that sort of couture with those sorts of price tags it would be criminal not to re-wear them.”
