The former Meghan Markle may be our new Duchess of Sussex, but that doesn't mean we have to forget all about her previous life as an A-list actress! Meghan of course rose to fame playing Rachel Zane on law firm drama Suits, and made many a red carpet appearance in her time – from film premieres to fashion week. And while her new wardrobe has meant there are some subtle changes to the way she dresses, we can certainly see some similarities between her red carpet and royal style – from her strappy heels to her sleek, modern hairstyles.
Meghan once said of her go-to style: "I think as you get older you feel more confident and you don't need to put that much effort in - to be able to throw your hair up in that very French way doing things. If your outfit is on point, one thing has to be off for you to look perfect." We couldn't agree more! Scroll down through the gallery to see her signature looks on the red carpet, wearing everything from minidresses to jumpsuits and leather trousers...
