When you’re a royal, dressing up is hard. After all, every outfit you wear in public will be photographed, analyzed and written about, so you have to get it right. This is something that Meghan Markle undoubtedly knows all too well – although getting to live in a palace may help her come to terms with it. Nevertheless, when the Duchess of Sussex wore a long-sleeved maxi dress to a wedding, the royal-watchers of the internet exploded.
Of course, fans have been eagerly following Meghan’s fashion choices for quite a while. Ever since she got engaged to Prince Harry and was photographed with him to celebrate, in fact, people have kept a sharp eye on her wardrobe. And in the run-up to Meghan’s wedding, bookmakers even took bets on what designer she might wear on the big day, such was the public interest.
That much-anticipated wedding dress turned out to be simple and stunning, naturally. Meghan chose a wide-necked number from Clare Waight Keller, the British artistic director of French label Givenchy. Unsurprisingly, the dress was very expensive. Yet the market very quickly became saturated with cheaper knock-offs for people wishing to emulate the royal bride.
