Get the White Coat Fit For a Princess Bride
A new coat-wearing princess is soon to be living in Kensington Palace and she’s as fashionable and fabulous as one could hope of a glamorous American actress. Meghan Markle is her name, and she is set to marry Prince Harry this spring. On the cold and blustery day the Royal Family announced the big news, they also announced a special photoshoot with the prince and his bride-to-be.
Beautiful brunette-haired Markle looked resplendent in an elegant white belted wool coat fit for a princess. She looked every inch the winter white bride-to-be in the style that was both chic and cold-weather appropriate. This white divinity of a coat caught the imagination of women all over the world, and Canadian brand Fine sold out the style quickly.
Never fear though, Paper Duchesses rounded up similar lookalike styles that will have you feeling like a princess this winter!
The ‘Meghan Effect’ Could be the New ‘Kate Effect’
Royal Bride-to-Be Meghan Markle seems to be having a similar effect to Kate Middleton when her royal engagement was announced. Both women managed to sell out fashion items within hours or minutes, and proved a huge boon to the ready-to-wear fashion community and local designers.
Meghan chose to wear a belted white coat by Canadian knit-wear brand Fine, and the style sold out almost immediately after she and Prince Harry made their photocall appearance on the chilly afternoon of November 27, 2017 in London. They arrived at the sunken garden outside of Nottingham Cottage where they have been living together and will reside after the Spring 2018 wedding.
It is expected Prince Harry will be given a Dukedom, making Meghan a Duchess just like her sister-in-law Catherine. Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry will probably also be given a country estate of modest size once they begin a family, which they look forward to doing ‘relatively soon’.
