Meghan’s learning. Wearing Irish republican colours when she visited Ulster was a major mistake but she and her advisors apparently didn’t know the difference between the Republic of Ireland and NI, which is part of the U.K.

Supporting British fashion is what’s expected of Meghan.

I've probably added three or four new fashion companies, small brands at that, to my list because of Meghan.

And I got my Strathberry two days ago and its even more perfect in person!
Yes. It's quite amazing what she has been able to already do for smaller brands. Some pretty amazing stories from those companies just during the engagement. And as I consumer I do appreciate her putting more options forward, although my wallet has a different opinion.

My bank account was like "are we sure" when I got my Strathberrys Although I am glad I got two when I did because they have REALLY increased the price

I think the story of the Welsh jeans is really great. They are on my list as well.

IMO Meghan has brought some really, really local brands to the international spotlight in a way few royals have for the BRF.

I agree. I think it's especially great that she brought that small firm of jeans manufacturers into the spotlight and really improved their fortunes. Good on her!

Hmm, that's interesting about Strathberry. But I suppose supply and demand is the normal part of business. I believe Strathberry auctioned off the last bag that's like Meghan's Nottingham bag from that lot for charity. Not sure if they've subsequently restocked, but it was a nice gesture from them. I usually don't like buying bags until I've seen them in person, and I haven't had time to go track them down at Saks yet (which I believe is the only retailer in US for them?).

I do like these nice stories. Very uplifting. Especially when you hear about smaller businesses that really needs that boost. I loved her Burberry pants that sold out too, but that's probably a much smaller boost to their bottom line percentage wise.

I lucked out with Meghan's version of the Strathberry and got it a second before it sold out. I also got a different version I saw and liked too. I believe that is still available.

Still waiting on my Charlotte Elizabeth though!

And I agree, re bigger brands. Meghan supporting more indie UK brands is super important, probably moreso than flagship British brands although that is also important too.

Yes, both of the Strathberrys that she's been seen with are still out of stock.

Aww. Sweet article. I am glad they have been able to turn things around and even expand.

Why do people want to wear what Meghan (or any other royal) wears?

Because when she wears cute things, people think those things will look cute on them, too. I'm waiting for a few of her clothing pieces to show up from my favorite pattern designers so I can make my own knock offs.

Perfect neckline for her.

Same asymmetry but the brim is slightly different, difficult to say.

Edit: probably a different one, the crown(?) part is quite different.

Seems it's not a dress, but blazer (is it right word? I am no good in English fashion terms) and skirt.
