Meghan Markle blends Canadian and British designers on latest outing

By Emmy Griffiths

Meghan Markle's seven years living in Toronto while filming Suits definitely fostered a love of homegrown designs, but in an ode to her new home the London-based future royal added a number of British pieces to her repertoire on her latest outing in the UK with her fiancé, Prince Harry.

The royal couple visited Reprezent FM in Brixton on Tuesday, and the 36-year-old waved at the crowds before entering the building, which was established a decade ago to help young people socialize through radio in response to the rise in knife crime.

Meghan looked classic as ever in a camel coat by Canadian brand Smythe, and co-founders Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe shared their excitement with HELLO!, saying, “Meghan has shown unwavering commitment to her timeless style — she’s owned this coat for over a year and has worn it previously. We are so proud and flattered that it made it to her new home in London.” The $995 coat has now been made available for pre-order.

The rest of the royal-to-be's ensemble was made up of mostly British brands, perhaps in a nod to her new home. Black Burberry trousers were paired with a Marks and Spencer Autograph jumper, which is £45 ($75) and still available in all sizes.

Meghan topped the look off with a scarf by the British brand Jigsaw, which is incidentally where her future sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, worked as a buyer before entering the royal family. Her shoes paid homage to her third home, as she slipped into American designer Sarah Flint's Jay pumps, and her jewelry was by Mai

Speaking about the radio station, Prince Harry told the founder and chief executive Shane Carey: "All this is amazing." Speaking about their visit, Shane told PA: "Since the visit was announced there's been massive excitement in the station - much more than I could have expected. We're having the spotlight shone on us from all the world's media pretty much, we've never had this attention. The whole point of this is that the young people learn how to be creative and then shine with it and they're really getting a chance now."

Presenter Gloria Beyi, 17, said: "For two people who are making headlines in the news to come to a place where there's usually just a little column in the newspaper (about us) - I think a lot of people thought those two worlds would never collide."
