If you’ve ever wondered why Meghan Markle had a monochrome wardrobe shortly after tying the knot with Prince Harry in May 2018, you’ve come to the right place.
Elizabeth Holmes (author of HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style) appeared on a recent episode of the Royally Obsessed podcast, where she chatted with hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito about the Duchess of Sussex’s fashion over the years. The royal expert revealed that Markle drew inspiration from her Suits character, Rachel Zane, whose wardrobe reflected how she was feeling. (For example, if she wore red, she was in love.)
“I remember watching that in real time thinking, ‘Oh, my gosh,’” she said, referring to Markle’s public outings after the wedding. “It was dress, after dress, after dress in blush, neutral or tan.”
