  • Meghan Markle has already broken a number unspoken,
    traditional fashion rules within the royal family.
  • Since her engagement to Prince Harry she’s continued to
    own her more laid back, relaxed fashion style.
  • This week she was photographed wearing a cross-body
    purse, a first for someone in the royal family.

Meghan Markle is breaking a number of traditional fashion rules
within the royal family. From wearing a messy hair bun inside the
Cardiff Castle, to showing her legs sans pantyhose during her and
Prince Harry’s
engagement announcement
— she hasn’t compromised her own,
more relaxed, fashion style in the name of tradition.

This week, during a visit to Scotland, Markle was photographed
wearing a cross body purse — a first for someone within the royal
family. The bag, a Strathberry, was paired with a
large plaid coat, which had a fit less-tailored than most of the

closely watched by the media. In her and Prince Harry’s
official engagement photos

dress was considered a bold choice by some. Even her makeup
choices — contouring her cheeks with a deep blush has been noted.

Her decision to wear American fashion brands, such as Everlane,
is also a way Markle is stepping outside the traditional

Prior to the engagement announcement last November, Markle was
dressing even more casually — wearing torn jeans while out with
Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in September, and carrying a
large brown leather tote bag. While her style has already evolved
since then, she has still remained true to her roots.
