Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry romance hints in clothing line for John Lewis and M&S

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, 35, wed in October 2018.

By this time the Duchess of Sussex had already won over many Britons, especially fashion fans who lauded her chic style.

Now, an expert has revealed how Meghan drew on pivotal moments in her relationship with Prince Harry for the line.

These moments were not only meaningful for the couple, but big moments for Meghan herself.

Meghan and Harry’s first official royal appearance together took place at the Invictus Games Toronto 2017.

Meghan had been spotted in the crowd the night before in a burgundy dress, but she sat with a friend away from the Duke.

However, on the third day of the event Harry and Meghan made it official by sitting together at the events.

The loved up couple smiled as they basked in the limelight, displaying their couple status for the world see.

While many might have been tempted to dress to the nines for the events – knowing the eyes of the world would be on them – Meghan went for a low key minimal look that is characteristic of her style.

She wore a white shirt and denim jeans with a stylish rip in the knee.

Fashion PR expert Dominique St. John told “We saw her sport a similar white shirt from Misha Nonoo on her first official appearance with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto.”

So it is not a surprise to see a white shirt in Meghan’s capsule collection, sold on the website of her friend Misha Nonoo.

Dominique said: “We also saw her look effortlessly chic in a familiar trouser suit combination when she stepped out to the Endeavour Awards in London.”

The Endeavour Awards 2018 was a big moment for Meghan and Harry. It was one of the couple’s first appearances together at an evening event.

Meghan also took to the stage that night, a moment that indicated her journey to the public facing Duchess we see today.

Interestingly, Meghan eschewed an evening gown, instead mirroring her husband in a suit. While most can’t afford the Alexander McQueen suit Meghan wore that night, they can now emulate her in a suit.

Fans can buy the Smart Set Paris Jacket for £199 and the Smart Set Paris Trouser for £120.

Dominique added: “You can notice that Meghan was very much involved in the making of the collection because the choice of clothing in her line reflects the clothing that she wears to her official engagements.”

Meghan Markle’s clothing line has been the target of scammers who are selling the items for inflated prices on eBay. 

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
