Meghan Markle’s Beautiful Birthday Dress Is From an Affordable Mall Brand

We’ve known for a week that Meghan Markle had plans to celebrate her first birthday as a Duchess at the wedding of  Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks, and since then have been eagerly waiting to see what the new royal would wear. So far, she has favored a wide range of brands, from high-end designer like Dior to affordable names like Polo Ralph Lauren. Lucky for us commoners, for the wedding of Prince Harry’s prep school friend, Meghan skewed mass, choosing the popular mall brand, Club Monaco. The colorblock dress rings in at $328 with a button-up neckline that the Duchess left open to reveal a lacy bra. Clearly the versatile frock works for more formal occasions such as a wedding, but could definitely feel right at the office as well. Meghan finished off the look with a Philip Treacy fascinator and slingback Aquazurra pumps. Scroll down to shop the look, and see how the royal family wished Meghan a happy birthday.
