Mysterious signals coming from space are 'deeper than first thought', researchers have revealed. The closest fast radio burst was spotted in 2018, at just 500…
With 17 public appearances under her belt Meghan Markle has cemented her status as a fashion icon honing her look down to a few simple style staples.
The key to Meghan’s look is keeping things pared back and simple, and the devil as they say is in the detail.
Over the past five months we’ve seen that Meghan likes classic tailored pieces and the key to her success is how she pulls her look together in an effortless way.
Here we explore Meghan’s style staples and show you where to buy them on the high street.
The Cross Body Bag
Meghan is a big fan of a cross body bag. Not only is this a stylish choice but it’s also a practical one as she likes to go hands free. On a visit to Edinburgh castle in February, she wore a £425 green East/West mini cross body bag by Edinburgh based luxury label Stathberry.
For a Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting this month she accessorised her Altuzarra dress with a £171 Oroton ‘Avalon’ Zip Top color-blocked cross body bag.

While Kate Middleton won a special place in our hearts for her love of nude LK Bennett pumps, Meghan loves a higher, sexier heel. Meghan is a fan of the Manolo Blahnik BB pump and wore them four times in one week alone.
We spotted the black version at Westminster Abbey on Anzac day, a nude pair at a memorial to commemorate Stephen Lawrence, a blue suede pair to celebrate the Queen’s 92nd birthday and a black suede pair at the Invictus Games reception.
Meghan also has a penchant for Jimmy Choo and she was also spotted in the Tamara Mellon ‘Paramour’ heel at a Commonwealth meeting in London. Her fabulous shoes add polish, elevating her outfits and giving them a feminine twist.

Accents of green
While Meghan sticks to a palette of neutrals favouring navy, camel and black the one accent colour she likes to inject into her wardrobe is green. She has worn the colour multiple times, including the day she announced her engagement, when she wore a green P.A.R.O.S.H dress underneath a white belted jacket.
On a visit to Wales she added a pop of colour to her all black ensemble with a forest green DeMellier top handle bag.
Similarily on a trip to Scotland, she wore a green check Burberry coat with a green bag by Edinburgh luxury label Strathberry.
Then on a visit to Northern Island, she teamed a cream Victoria Beckham sweater and nude Mackage coat with a green fluted skirt by Greta Constantine.
More recently she was photographed in a pretty green floral dress by Self Portrait at the Invictus Games reception.

Mid length hemlines
Meghan is a big fan of a mid length hemline. Not only is this a fashionable length, but by showing less, it adds to her demure appearance.
Most of Meghan’s dresses have been midi-length, including the Emilia Wickstead dress she wore on Anzac Day, the Hugo Boss dress she wore to the Stephen Lawrence memorial and the Self Portrait dress she wore to the Invictus Games reception. She also wore a Joseph midi skirt on a visit to Nottingham back in December last year.

Meghan’s ‘messy bun’
Of the 17 public appearances that Meghan’s carried out since announcing her engagement in November, she’s worn her hair in a low loose bun four times.
The style is now refereed to as Meghan’s ‘messy bun’ and while it may look unkempt, this is style that’s been carefully orchestrated to look like it’s been thrown up in seconds.
The key to recreating this look is to tie your hair back with a middle parting, then secure the bun in the nape of the neck. Then simply loosen a few strands around the hair line to frame the face.
Meghan’s hat trick
While Meghan’s first foray into hat wearing didn’t go down that well she’s honed her craft. While the brown beret she wore to the Sandringham Christmas day mass was criticised, since then she’s mastered the art.
The white Stephen Jones beret she wore for the Commonwealth Day Observance service Westminster Abbey looked incredibly chic and stylish. As did the black floppy hat followed by a black Stephen Jones beret she wore on Anzac Day.
- Cream beret, £12, ASOS
The belted coat
Meghan is a big fan of the belted coat. She wore a white Line The Label coat to announce her engagement, a classic camel style by Sentaler at Sandringham to celebrate Christmas with the Royals, a black Stella McCartney coat in Cardiff and a navy and white J Crew belted coat in Birmingham.
Meghan knows exactly how to flatter her figure and the belted style emphasises her waist by drawing her in at the middle. She is so adept at this style that she has even has her special technique for tying the belt. Meghan ties the belt into a small bow leaving the rest trailing downwards. Another easy styling trick we can all copy.
- ‘Alexandra’ belted coat, £199, Whistles
- Tan belted coat, £34.99, Next
