When it comes to fairytale narratives, Meghan Markle's journey from small screen star of Suits to the Duchess of Sussex might just take the cake. With her recent marriage to Prince Harry, Meghan's life is now taking a royal turn, something that's clearly evident from her style evolution.
While Meghan — no stranger to the spotlight thanks to her career as an actor — has always had a savvy sartorial sense, since beginning her relationship with Harry, she's added more polished styles and sophisticated silhouettes to an already glamorous wardrobe, resulting in a fresh approach to dressing like a royal. Case in point: consider her choice to pair a crisp and classic white button down with a pair of artfully ripped skinny jeans and tan ballet flats for Harry's Invictus Games; while the shirt and flats speak to a genteel British aesthetic, the jeans add just enough free-spirited Americana to keep the outfit playful but still polished.
As we embrace Meghan's new role as the Duchess of Sussex, here's a look back at her best looks to date and how they've changed on her road to the palace.
