Let’s be honest, when Meghan Markle joined the royal family, she changed the sartorial game a little. Of course, Kate Middleton always looks impeccable, but the new Duchess of Sussex has broken the rules a little with her wardrobe (which is worth quite a lot it turns out).
They say the devil’s in the detail, and the former Suits actress’s accessories are certainly always on point, including her handbags, which incidentally totalled around £40,000 in 2018, apparently.
The Daily Mail kept track of all her arm candy she was spotted wearing at official engagements over the year, which included 38 handbags.
There was the Fendi Peekaboo bag she wore to visit the president in Dublin, the Altuzarra black Ghianda Saddle bag she wore to Wimbledon, and the Givenchy clutch bag she wore to see the Royal Academy of Arts’ new exhibition in September.
But our favourite one has to be the cute Victoria Beckham bag she wore to attend the royal family’s annual Christmas Day service. Meghan is rumoured to be friends with VB, so this is a nice way for her to support her designs, a bit like she did with Serena Williams’ clothes.
This last one was from her pre-fall 2018 collection and was shaped like a powder box, includes a little mirror inside and is priced at £1,550. Pretty and practical.
