Meghan Markle made a rare appearance in a $3,260 trench: 11 best affordable dupes
It's not the first time the stylish royal has worn this timeless wardrobe staple.
Meghan Markle has been keeping a low profile since the Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan" premiered in late 2022. However, royal watchers were treated to a rare online appearance as the Duchess of Sussex was spotted in an Instagram video on Monday.
In the video shared to the Clevr Blends account, the brand's founder detailed the company's unique startup story, and shared glimpses at Meghan's support over the years (the Duchess first invested in Clevr Blends back in 2020).
As ever, Meghan pulled off her signature polished yet relaxed style. She could be seen rocking a Ralph Lauren Easy Care Cotton Broadcloth Shirt, Aquazzura Fenix Suede Ballet Flats and dark skinny jeans. She topped the look off with a sold-out Burberry Maythorne Mulberry Silk Trench.
The style is a favourite among the 41-year old royal, as she was first seen wearing it on tour in New Zealand in 2018.
A the time, the pregnant duchess opted to wear the Burberry trench with a fitted cream Brandon Maxwell midi dress and suede Stuart Weitzman heels.
The trench coat originally retailed for $3,260 CAD/$2,395 USD, making it a definite splurge purchase. However, with spring just a few short weeks away, Meghan's trench coat is the perfect style inspiration for the season.
