As we are now in the homestretch leading to the Royal Wedding, we thought it would be fun to share with you some of our favourite moments from during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship – and share style details, of course – as we wait to see them start their lives together on May 19th.
In no particular order, here are 5 of our favourite moments of the last 18 months:
Meghan’s Last “Public” Appearance as an Actress
Meghan stepped out with her co-stars of ‘Suits’ in June of 2017 in Austin at the ATX Festival where they reminisced about their favorite moments of their hit show. It was the first “appearance” of Meghan since Pippa Middleton’s wedding and her last trip to the UK. There were lots of rumours flying around, and we absolutely loved the perfect floral dress Meghan chose as she re-read scenes from the début episode of ‘Suits’.
Stepping out in Jamaica
While they probably didn’t love the paparazzi intrusion, we loved seeing these first images of Meghan and Harry together – and of Meghan’s dreamy Erdem dress – while at a friend’s wedding in Jamaica. The dress was a mystery to many of us at the time, wondering how Meghan got a bespoke/advance season Erdem… But the Meghan effect had clearly already begun!
Meghan leaves the UK
Meghan departed from the UK to return home for the holidays after a trip to visit Prince Harry in December 2016. Looking casual, yet elegant, as she walked through Heathrow, this remains one of the most popularly searched airport looks on the blog. We love the 360 Cashmere sweater with the stars, which Meghan purchased with Jessica Mulroney at Ani+Wren in Toronto.
A Romantic Trip to Africa
Meghan and Harry jetted off to Africa for a romantic getaway – and we caught a glimpse of the happy couple on the tarmac! We fell in love with the super affordable pieces Meghan carried – like an Everlane backpack and J.Crew sandals. Nothing like a few stylish budget-friendly selections to win our hearts.
The day that royal watchers had been waiting for- news of a royal engagement! November 27th, 2017 saw an exciting announcement and a stunning photocall in the Sunken Gardens at Kensington Palace. We loved the classic, clean look and loved the interview of the couple afterwards even more.
Oh my goodness, these are all such great looks I don’t know how to choose!! I’ve always preferred “casual” Meghan and since I have the same J Crew sandals, I’ll say the candid airport photo is one of my favorites. The dress and coat she wore for the engagement announcement are stunning but just can’t hold a candle to her happy smile or the ultimate arm candy, Prince Harry!
Thanks MM for steering clear of the mess caused by Meghan’s father. I’ve commented to death about it on other sites and frankly I’m finding it nice to have a place where I can just focus on the fashion and style. Only a few more days and then we can all talk about wedding dresses and tiaras!!!
We love casual Meghan too, Lauri! It’s so relatable to everyday life for most of us, versus the beautiful but largely unrealistic ballgowns.
And thanks for the other comments. Can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the dress!
I agree with Lauri, it’s lovely to have a place where things are carrying on as normal in the fashion world minus the Tale of the Panicking Pater.
I hadn’t had a good look at the pretty orange Club Monaco sundress before and it’s great to catch up on the pretty detailing on the bodice. I adored the Erdem, a showstopper for me, and I hadn’t caught up with the Stella jumper before, fun but still a classic.
I’m not a big fan of the engagement coat, but love the bow detail sheath underneath. My own personal favourite from the courting days was the Berardi dress worn to Harry”s polo match. Thanks so much for the review, a real pleasure!
Thanks, Bertie! There is enough attention on all the gossip and speculation elsewhere that we thought we’d stick to what we know best 🙂
I’m loving your pre-wedding coverage, truly informative 🙂
Oh how I wish we got a better look at her Berardi dress, it looked (fuzzy) like the “perfect” dress! Thanks for remembering it Bertie!

Royal Fans around the world following with high attention the royal love story of prince Harry& Meghan are aware about what is going behind the scene since their engagement has been made public last year: A very dangerous plot against Prince Harry and Meghan has been revealed! A very few number of (fascists) people close to prince Harry who are against his union with Meghan have put a devil plan under way to destroy Meghan and prince Harry’s life by using the racist Media (Daily Mail) and Meghan’s devil sister Samantha and brother Thomas Jr.
To well understand and discover the truth about this plot, you just need to re-examine very carefully all the posts published by The Daily Mail UK against Meghan since the royal romance has become public, on the one hand, and the verbal aggression of Meghan’s devil sister as well as the strange damned letter wrote by Thomas Jr. insulting Meghan hatefully and asking for the royal wedding to be cancelled, on the other hand. These 2 Meghan’s relatives are being manipulated and misused by these few racists people within the royal family to destroy Meghan and Prince Harry. Samantha and her brother Thomas are being paid to do this devil job. The so called “paparazzi photos scandal” is part of this plot because it has been planned, well prepared to overshadow the royal wedding and Samantha Markle has been used to push her Father in to this trap to create a fake “scandal”, so he would be unable to travel to London for the royal wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle. Now these people are speaking about “hart operation” on Meghan’ Father just two days before the wedding! you know why? Because they want to kill him while the wedding is about to take place, so they want to disturb and destabilize the royal wedding. But this plot is out and revealed worldwide. Princes Harry& William, Meghan and Queen Elizabeth are aware about this plot. The royal wedding will take place even if they kill Thomas Markle sr.
Royal fans worldwide are looking forward to celebrating the big day with this lovely couple together. Be blessed Meghan and Prince Harry. God is protecting you all the time against your very close enemies. Be aware, be very careful.
