Meghan Markle is a huge fan of one of Strathberry's little handbags, and it's gotten a fabulous new makeover for spring. The fresh new hue blends cream, mustard and brown in a timeless design that will run you $755. Meghan wore the East/West Mini when she visited Scotland in February, easily recognizable thanks to its iconic Strathberry bar closure and a gold chain strap.
Meghan did something no other royal ever done before when she wore the bag in Edinburgh – she wore it across the body! The former Suits star wore the bag over the top of her coat, as opposed to it swinging from her shoulder or carried like a clutch. This modern way of dressing is slightly different and sent fans wild – particularly as the bag matched perfectly with her coordinating checked coat by Burberry.
The success of Strathberry has escalated hugely since Meghan first carried the iconic burgundy tote bag back in December 2017 on a visit to Nottingham – her very first official visit with husband-to-be Prince Harry after their engagement was announced.
Leeanne Hundleby, one of the founders of Strathberry, spoke to Hello! and explained the hysteria surrounding the aftermath of her wearing it: "We had no idea Meghan would be wearing the bag in Nottingham. We first realised something was going on when people started to call the office and ask if Meghan was carrying our bag." Leeanne also stated that a huge 3,500 shoppers signed up for stock updates on the burgundy bag, and that the phone didn't stop ringing. We're thinking more calls are coming her way with this new release.
