Meghan Markle’s gold-plated sunglasses cost a whopping $916

By Meaghan Wray

The Duchess of Sussex certainly has an eye for detail! When the birthday girl stepped out on Aug. 4 for Royal Family friend Charlie van Straubenzee’s wedding, Meghan debuted a new pair of very glamorous sunglasses – Linda Farrow’s 512 C3 Oval Sunglasses. Ringing in at a cool CA$916, the large frames are partially made form 18-22 carat gold-plated Japanese titanium, a luxe combination that’s both durable and stylish.

Royal watchers were quick to notice this new addition to her sunglass collection, immediately heading to the shops and online to get their hands on a pair, which the royal teamed with Club Monaco’s “Shoanah” dress , a Philip Treacy hat and her trusty Aquazzura bow pumps. The “Meghan effect” is in full swing and the frames have already sold out in America, though they’re still available on the brand’s UK website. The style is reminiscent of the first pair of sunnies she popularized, her tortoiseshell Finlay & Co glasses , which she wore for her and Prince Harry’s debut as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

But Meghan, 37, wasn’t the only one wearing a chic pair of sunglasses that day! Social media went crazy for Princess Eugenie ’s sci-fi-worthy shades, which Popsugar reports are by the brand Mr Boho. The small, plastic shades, lined with an inner white frame, really added some oomph to the princess’s look that day – a pastel-blue Whistles dress, a cream Topshop jacket and floral clutch by Charlotte Olympia. She was sided by her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, who looked dapper as ever in his formal morning coat for the society wedding.

The royal women were out in full force to celebrate Charlie’s wedding to photographer Daisy Jenks, who stunned in a boho-style wedding gown by designer Mira Zwillinger . The heartwarming nuptials were made even sweeter by the stunning weather in the quaint village of Frensham, Surrey, as Prince Harry took on the role of best man for one of his closest pals from primary school.
