The real reason Meghan Markle won’t wear a Victoria Beckham dress

Words by Nola Ojomu

Meghan Markle is always keen to support her friends in fashion by wearing their designs during her royal engagements.

But there is one item you won’t see the Duchess of Sussex rocking any time soon – a Victoria Beckham dress.

While the Beckhams are good friends of the royal family – and even attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May – it turns out VB’s dresses aren’t such a perfect fit for the 37-year-old royal.

The reason

In a recently unearthed interview, the former Suits star explains why she would never wear a VB dress.

Speaking to Glamour back in 2017, Meghan explains: “Now what I’m starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn’t mean they’re going to look amazing on me.

“For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don’t have the long torso to support that silhouette.”

We’re sure Meghan would look great in a VB design but it is always good to know your body and dress for it.

The exception

While Meghan doesn’t think she can pull off a Victoria Beckham dress, she has been able to show her love for the brand during her time with Harry.

The mum-to-be actually wore a white cashmere sweater by VB in one of her engagement photos with Prince Harry.

Something tells us Victoria was pretty happy with that!
