Past Outfits Meghan Markle Can’t Wear Anymore Now That She’s Royal

Meghan Markle found fame playing the part of Rachel Zane in popular legal drama Suits, but it was her recent wedding to the world’s most eligible bachelor that saw her become a household name. For the American-born actress, marrying Prince Harry was a dream come true – but becoming the Duchess of Sussex comes at a cost.

Although she was footloose and fancy-free prior to the May 2018 nuptials, Markle was expected to stick to some tried and tested royal rules after marrying Harry – including what she can and can’t wear. Join us as we give a kiss goodbye to some of Meghan’s most memorable looks. What will you miss most?

Getting together with a British prince is one thing, but marrying him is an entirely different kettle of fish. Prince Harry and Meghan’s relationship was officially acknowledged in November of 2016 when Harry released a statement asking people to stop directing abuse at his new beau.

At this point, Meghan was still active on social media and could still wear what she wanted. Pictured here at the 2017 Invictus Games, Meghan wears a perfectly lovely pair of ripped jeans. Just over a month later and Harry put a ring on it, putting a nail in the coffin of Meg’s casual wardrobe and bidding farewell to those adorable mom jeans.
