All of Meghan Markle's Looks Before and After She Became a Royal

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has always favoured classic pieces with modern updates and silhouettes (before and after she became a member of the royal family). However, we're now watching her adapt her wardrobe for her new role, following protocol with nude tights and weights fixed in her hems.

However, she is putting her own spin on royal dressing, creating her own signature style that isn't simply a carbon copy of the duchess of Cambridge's distinctive aesthetic. She wore an off-the-shoulder dress to her first Trooping the Colour, has worn denim and carries crossbody bags instead of the usual stiff top-handle totes favoured by the queen. For more formal occasions, Meghan favours elegant, conservative workwear—including pencil skirts, pointed court shoes, large structured totes and trouser suits with a polished look that is reminiscent of Claire Underwood in House of Cards.
