But probably not for much longer...
While the world gushed over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s adorable first outing at the Invictus Games last year, we honed in on one thing – her amazing tortoiseshell sunglasses from FINLAY London. Clearly, we weren’t the only ones as they instantly sold out and if you missed your chance the first time around, you’re in luck. They’ve just been restocked.
Her sunglasses are called the Percy Frames in Light Tortoise and are priced at £120. These round lens shades come in a number of colour ways on the site and unsurprisingly have been the most popular shades on the site – literally thousands of pairs have been sold on pre-orders alone since the Suits actress popped them on in Canada.
Priced at £120, available from FINLAY London
If you squint really hard, you might be able to make out one little detail on Meghan Markle’s shades: namely a small MM engraving on the side of her glasses. If you’re feeling a little extra, you can pay an extra £40 and get your initials carved into your pair too.
It isn’t the first time that Meghan Markle has caused a product to sell out within hours of wearing it. Her gorgeous £30 BaubleBar Ring also quickly ran out of stock and they’ve been struggling to keep up with the demand since. The Meghan Markle effect hasn’t been lost on FINLAY London, as they’ve credited the royal-to-be with a six figure spike in sales of their frames.
Dane Butler, the brand’s creative director and co-founder, said, ‘Over the last year or so, Meghan has become a global style icon with every detail of her outfits being scrutinised. We’re honoured that Meghan has been photographed wearing her FINLAY Percy frames on numerous occasions in the last few months.’
And Meghan’s in good company, given that Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne are also big fans of the brand. Now that it’s officially spring and the sun’s coming back out again, we don’t doubt we’ll see Meghan flashing her pair of FINLAYs around soon. Bring on the blue skies.
