The website’s annual clothing calculations showed that with a grand total of $508,258 USD — a number that includes her Cartier Reflection wedding bracelet and earrings, but not her wedding gown — Markle donned the priciest clothes and accessories last year compared to 13 other royal women, including Princess Eugenie and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The amounts above were determined using only new clothing items added to the royal wardrobes, no fashion repeats. As a newly married royal, it’s worth noting that Markle perhaps had the most purchases to help with her royal glow-up.
As we’ve seen since her engagement to Prince Harry was first announced in November 2017, Markle’s sartorial style, reminiscent of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, is indeed worthy of royalty. From the white wrap coat she wore for her engagement pictures to her wedding dress and every trendy and adorable item in between, Markle’s ensembles have long dominated the news cycle, inspiring countless lookalikes and elevating some lesser-known brands to instant fame.
Many of the pieces Markle wears tend to sell out fast once photos of her wearing them hit the internet, too. For example, there’s the two-tone J.Crew navy coat she wore while in Birmingham with her hubby for International Women’s Day.
Then there’s the Serena Williams-designed “boss blazer” Markle showed off during a visit to Australia.
