She’s a huge fan of brands from Down Under, opting for a Ralph and Russo number to pose in for her engagement portraits and even wearing a pair of UGG boots on Instagram.
But Princess-to-be Meghan Markle’s love for Australian designers extends to her accessories too.
The incoming royal bride, who will marry Prince Harry on May 19, chose to wear fine jewellery pieces by Australian designer Natalie Marie as she accompanied her soon-to-be husband to a meeting with youth delegates at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) on Tuesday.
Meghan Markle stepped out on a 25 degree day in London wearing not one but two Australian designers (pictured with Prince Harry)
The jacket appears to be from the Australian designers’ Camilla and Marc’s winter 2018 ready-to-wear collection, and costs $699
Prince Harry said that both he and Meghan were ‘excited’ to take on the challenge of their new role, helping young people around the world solving challenges of the future
At the meeting she opted for two of Natalie Marie’s Square Wire Rings, which retail for $220 each, and are excellent for stacking with the bands she already owns, including the Two Toned Heavy Faceted Band ($190.00)
Natalie Marie, who creates bespoke wedding jewellery from her Sydney-based store, has personally supplied jewellery to the former Suits star in the past.
‘Meghan has been a wonderful support to NMJ,’ Natalie Marie told FEMAIL.
‘It’s invaluable to have someone that truly loves and supports the brand wearing our pieces, as this translates very honestly and authentically to our collective following.
‘I think Meghan’s appeal is that she is a very genuine and open individual, who speaks very truthfully and sincerely whether the conversation is around her style choices or her extensive charity work,’ she added.
Earlier this week, Prince Harry was named by the Queen as a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador
Many complimented Meghan on her outfit, dubbing it her raciest royal look yet, as she removed her jacket inside the venue – which is uncustomary for royals
The future royal seemed ready for business as she joined Prince Harry to meet youth delegates taking part in this week’s high-profile Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting
At the meeting she opted for two of Natalie Marie’s Square Wire Rings, which retail for $220 each, and are excellent for stacking with the bands she already owns, including the Two Toned Heavy Faceted Band ($190.00).
She accompanied this with a $699 Marguerite jacket by Australian designers Camilla and Marc draped over her shoulders and a $295 cross-body bag from fellow Antipodean label Oroton slung over her shoulder.
She also appears to be wearing a dainty bracelet like the Fine Bangle sold on the Natalie Marie website for $400.

Previously, Meghan has been adorned in the Petite Rose Morganite ring, which costs $1,525.00, and the Dotted Oval Necklace for $200.
Both made an obvious appearance on her social media accounts when they were still active.
Natalie Marie offers a bespoke engagement and wedding ring service, one that can see her and her team take months to craft the perfect band, so might be a legitimate option for the royal-to-be at her upcoming wedding.
‘When you get the package of jewelry that makes your heart go pitter pat’, Ms Markle wrote, adding that the brand was her ‘very favourite’
The Australian jewellery designer also sent the Suits star this morganite and diamond ring in rose gold
Natalie Marie told FEMAIL brides considering a customised wedding piece should think about several factors from lifestyle through to personal aesthetic.
‘When I meet with brides who are designing their own ring, I always advise them to factor in their lifestyle, taste and long term factors.
‘Your engagement ring should be perfectly you,’ she concluded, ‘without influence from outside factors.’
