Meghan Markle's Wardrobe for Final Royal Engagements in the UK Reportedly Added up to $33,000
Meghan Markle donned a new wardrobe worth thousands of dollars for final royal engagements. The Duchess wore everything from her go-to brands to some of the top luxury designers.
Headlines had been buzzing over every single style choice Meghan Markle made since making her highly anticipated return to England when she joined Prince Harry for their final royal engagements.
The Duchess did not spare any expense on her new wardrobe for her five-day visit. It is reported, she racked up to $33,000 on clothing and accessories.
For her first public appearance with Harry since her return for London, she dazzled in a turquoise form-fitting dress by her designer friend, Victoria Beckham, for the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House.
For another solo engagement, she visited the national theatre in an almost $35 ivory organza sleeve blouse by Topshop.

The organza sleeve top has been sold out. Meghan paired her theatre look with a complementing chevron skirt by Roland Mouret and a black mini-handbag by Loewe.
Joining Harry at Mountbatten Festival, she wore a show-stopping red gown with a cape, by Safiyaa Kalika, worth over $1,500. She accessorized with a red satin clutch by Manolo Blahnik, also costing over $1,500.
The dress was made designer by Emilia Wickstead, which she wore with a matching fascinator by William Chambers.
The look caused quite the stir with royal fans who noted that it looked similar to an outfit worn by Princess Diana at the Trooping the Colors parade in 1982.
For her final solo engagement, Meghan went for another fitted looked and wore a navy blue dress by Scanlan Theodore with a matching clutch, and pointed heels.

Earlier this week The Duchess of Sussex, in her role as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), met with the bright minds from across the Commonwealth to hear about their commitment to tackling the global challenges we all face. The Duchess spoke with Scholars studying and researching important areas surrounding; cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving health outcomes for citizens, and supporting decent work and economic growth. Paving the way as the next generation of leaders, these inspirational scholars, are spread far across the Commonwealth from Malawi to Malaysia, Ghana to Sri Lanka – all of whom will use the skills and knowledge they gain while studying in the UK to make a difference when they return to their home countries. The Duchess, who also attended university with support of a scholarship, is a strong advocate of accessible education for all. As the Royal Patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official) since January 2019, The Duchess has met and engaged with students, academics, and staff from ACU member universities across the Commonwealth to learn more about the vital work they do to address global challenges. As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.
Reportedly, Meghan is looking forward to life outside of the monarchy because she had been unhappy with a lot of the protocol, which had limited her fashion choices over the past few years.
Fans had noticed that since her return to England, she had showcased looks that reminded many people of her Hollywood style before she married into the royal family.
