Since marrying Prince Harry in 2018, Meghan Markle has carefully chosen her own style with a sense of aesthetic independence not usually associated with members of the royal family.

Proudly proud of the fact that she does not use the services of a stylist, Meghan has strayed from many established royal conventions, both in her clothing choices and her working practices.

From commissioning a French fashion label to make her wedding dress to attending royal functions in bold and exciting colours, Meghan has a strong connection to the way she dresses.

A staple of the Duchess’s wardrobe that she particularly likes is the mini-dress. This 1960s invention was reinterpreted over the following decades to become a chic wardrobe staple. For the royal family however, the mini dress or skirt is a rarely worn item.

“Meghan Markle’s team reached out with picks of a few pieces she was interested in, I almost fell off my chair! I was so excited. In particular, they wanted our Leap of Faith blazer dress to be made without the sleeves. So, of course, we dropped everything to make it happen!”

She then added, “I’m so honored that she chose to wear one of my designs!”
