GALLERY: Meghan Markle’s Style Through The Years

She may be the fiancée of a Prince but Meghan Markle has been making things happen in her own right for years. Following a number of small TV roles, the actress shot to fame when she was cast as Rachel Zane in courtroom drama Suits. Since then, she has been involved in many projects; becoming a global ambassador for World Vision Canada in 2016 as well as being an advocate for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.

Nevertheless, a royal engagement will garner you more than a few headlines (even if you’re used to walking red carpets), and now more eyes are on her sartorial choices than ever before. Her style, she says is classic and non-fussy. “Wear what makes you comfortable, and isn’t going to make you cringe in three years when you see the photo,” she previously told when questioned about her go-to style choices.”I’m not very trend-driven. I’ll pepper it in here and there, but invest in classic pieces and you’ll never regret it.”

And knowing what looks right, despite a love of the designer in question is crucial. “Now what I’m starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn’t mean they’re going to look amazing on me,” she explained to Glamour. “For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don’t have the long torso to support that silhouette.” She cites French Vogue Editor Emmanuelle Alt as her style inspiration. “I like really classic pieces. I also love that French way of styling, where if your outfit is pulled together, then something’s got to be dishevelled – your hair, your make-up.”

We take a look at her style through the years in our gallery above.
