Does Meghan Markle's Victoria Beckham sweater look familiar? Here's why!

By Laura Sutcliffe

Meghan Markle and her fiancé Prince Harry gave fans the best start to their weekends on Friday (Mar. 23) as they made a surprise visit to Northern Ireland. The 36-year-old reinforced her style-icon status during an action-packed day of engagements, starting at the Eikon Centre, Maze Road in Lisburn. She paired Canadian designers Greta Constantine, responsible for her flouncy skirt, and Mackage, the duo behind her sand coat, with Jimmy Choo pumps and a brown bag by British label Charlotte Elizabeth. But one piece of her ensemble seemed very familiar: her cream Victoria Beckham sweater, and here's why! The 36-year-old wore the same top in her iconic engagement photographs, which were released in December by Kensington Place. After the American actress wore it, the $1250 top was an instant sell-out.

Meghan's beautiful hair was preened to perfection in Belfast – she wore it back in a casual bun which was pulled away from her face – showing off her dainty features. Her makeup looked particularly polished with glowing, dewy makeup which consisted of brown eyeshadow, a lit from within base and a smattering of nude lipstick.

Fashion fans everywhere took particular interest in Meghan's handbag. She carried the chestnut 'Bloomsbury' bag by British designer Charlotte Elizabeth which is priced at $320.

The choice of bag is particularly poignant as it shows Meghan is supporting her father-in-law, Prince Charles' charity. Charlotte told HELLO!: "It is wonderful to see Ms. Meghan Markle wearing Charlotte Elizabeth The Chestnut Bloomsbury today."

The designer creates her bags in a factory in Buckinghamshire and her company is supported by the Prince's Trust. A bag just like Meghan’s is available to pre-order on the Charlotte Elizabeth site and comes in chestnut, black and red. Expect a stampede!
