If Meghan Markle’s engagement announcement coat is the cue to her wedding dress, then she’s going to look stunning as a bride (not that we had any reasons to doubt that).
The would-be Duchess of the British royal family celebrated the happy news with a press conference in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, where Markle appeared in a white coat with the dapper Prince Harry to reveal her engagement ring to the cameras.
While speaking to press in the garden, Prince Harry revealed that he designed the ring and it was made by the jeweller Cleave and Company. The ring features three diamonds set on a gold band - one from Botswana (the country where he vacationed with Markle) and the other two are from the personal collection of Princess Diana, his mother. You can’t put a price on that, can you?
Markle chose a white belted jacket from a Canadian brand Line, which is popular amongst celebrities for its knitwear and coats. Markle is also a fan of the brand as she was spotted wearing a tan trench coat from the label to the Invictus Games earlier this fall.
“We are incredibly honoured that Meghan chose to wear a Line coat to mark this very special occasion. Meghan has an effortlessly chic sense of style, which we’ve always admired. We know this particular coat is one of her favourite pieces so we have officially decided to name it the ‘Meghan.’ We are elated for Meghan and wish her a lifetime of happiness with Prince Harry,” Line president and co-founder John Muscat shared with USA TODAY.
As per the brand, the coat is now sold out and is originally priced at $799 CAD roughly equivalent to Rs 40,265. Looks like after Kate, Markle is going to drive brand sales up.
Markle has worn a crepe crew-neck dress in green underneath her coat, from the Italian brand Parosh. It is originally retailing at €480, equivalent to Rs 36,800. She paired her look with the nude Matilde criss-cross pumps from Aquazzura which are already sold out BTW. She also wore the same to Canada’s One Young World Summit in fall 2016. The heels are originally priced at $695 which loosely translates to Rs 44,800.
In case you were wondering, here’s how the proposal came along,
