Just like her soon-to-be sister-in-law Princess Kate, Meghan Markle is a style influencer.
A spokesperson for the Scottish brand — which was launched in 2013 by Leeanne Hundleby and her husband Guy — told The Telegraph that “it’s just amazing for us, it really is the greatest.”
According to The Telegraph, at the time Leeanne decided to send Meghan a selection of purses, it had not yet been announced that Meghan and Harry were engaged.
“It was a fantastic surprise and we are really excited. We’re suddenly incredibly busy,” the spokesperson added.
Perhaps this is a sign that Meghan’s taking a sartorial cue from Queen Elizabeth, who’s rarely seen without her trusty purse.
The monarch’s bag of choice is Launer London — and she has reportedly owned more than 200 Launer handbags over the years. The Queen’s loyalty to the brand began in 1968, when designer Sam Launer sent her a bag.
While the contents of the 91-year-old monarch’s inspired a 2007 book — What’s in the Queen’s Handbag? And Other Royal Secrets, by Phil Dampier and Ashley Walton — when it comes to what’s inside Meghan’s bags, they likely contain a few of her favorite beauty products.
Meghan loves Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen ($42, sephora.com), which she told Beauty Banter is easy to blend and compact enough for on-the-go use. And she swears by the lash-boosting mascara Revitalash ($24, dermstore.com), which she may have carried with her for touch-ups throughout the day. She’s also rarely without sunglasses. She wore a pair of Finlay & Co. shades during her appearance at the Invictus Games in September.
