The Royals LOVE dressing to a theme, especially when they are on a jolly good walkabout. So it’s no great surprise for her first Highland fling, Meghan Markle chose a tartan overcoat from the equally typically British brand, Burberry.
Available at Burberry at Net-a-porter | £1995
The former actress turned Princess in the making stepped out on Tuesday with her fiancé, Prince Harry, for an official royal visit to Scotland to see Edinburgh Castle. The coat in question was a navy, black, and green tartan button-up £1,995 Burberry coat, and it’s STILL IN STOCK! That’s if you are feeling a little flush!
The Scottish sartorial links didn’t stop there, pairing her ensemble with with black trousers and a green Strathberry cross body bag – an Edinburgh-based company. Prince Harry himself decided as normal to stick to his uniform tones of dark grey coat, white shirt and navy sweater.
The countdown to the wedding of the year (sorry Princess Eugenie) is seriously on, and the crowds in Scotland are very representative of the public thirst for Meghan and Harry.
Her long jacket is reminiscent of a similarly bold tartan look that Kate Middleton once wore in 2012 as she celebrated St. Andrew’s Day in England. It also harkens back to when Princess Diana chose a dark green oversized print coat on a trip to Venice in 1985.
It seems Meghan has royal dressing in her DNA, then.
