Meghan Markle's $85 'chic yet dramatic' sunglasses are perfect for summer
Meghan Markle's stylish specs are back in stock and perfect for summer.
Meghan Markle has an undeniable knack for style. From her designer gowns, sustainable sneakers and chic date night wear, the mother-of-two has become a primary source of sartorial inspiration.
While the Duchess of Sussex stepped back as a senior member of the royal family in 2020, she continues to dress to impress. Whatever Meghan wears in public, from a simple pair of jeans to an elegant blouse, almost instantly sells out.
Such is the case with the Le Specs Air Heart 51mm Cat Eye Sunglasses (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.). A particular favourite of the Duchess, this surprisingly affordable item immediately sold out after Meghan was seen wearing them during her baby shower in New York in 2019.
However, the stylish specs are back in stock and perfect for summer. To shop the royal-approved look ahead of the season, scroll below.

“I love these sunglasses. It's a chic yet dramatic look. The only disappointment with these sunglasses is that I didn't quite look like Meghan Markle in them, but I sure felt like a Duchess!” adds another shopper.
“I ordered these based off of a picture I saw of Meghan Markle wearing them and they did not disappoint!” writes another reviewer. “I also like that they stay in place and aren’t too tight.”
