Meghan Markle Continues to Champion British Talent Ahead of London Fashion Week

In The Daily Scoop by Lauren Parker, Accessories Magazine

Since her engagement to Prince Harry in November, Meghan Markle has made it her mission to embrace British design, wearing pieces from Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (to the Endeavour Fund Gala), Stella McCartney (for a visit to Cardiff Castle in Wales), and Marks and Spencer (to Reprezent 107.3 radio in Peckham). And today, when Markle stepped out with her fiancé to visit Edinburgh Castle, she donned a coat from Burberry—a fitting gesture on the eve of London Fashion Week and Christopher Bailey’s last show for the English house.

The look fell in line with Markle’s signature strong tailoring: a belted number from Sentaler for church services at Sandringhama chesterfield style from Smythe for a tour of Wales, and an optic white piece from Line the Label for her official engagement announcement. But Markle did take a cue from the more traditional style of her future in-law Kate Middleton by choosing a classic and location-appropriate Black Watch plaid print in blue, black, and green. (Black Watch plaid is the official tartan of the 3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland). Completing the look were Veronica Beard’s sailor trousers and a hunter green cross-body bag from Strathberry (a Scottish label) that picked up on the tones of her coat. Read more at Vogue
