Meghan Markle looked elegant in a white wool wrap coat as she stepped out with Prince Harry on Monday following the news of their engagement. The design was quickly identified as a number by Canadian label LINE, retailing at £470. What's more, the brand were so honoured that the 36-year-old chose to wear the coat for such a special occasion, that they have since named the £470 design the 'Meghan' coat.

Meghan Markle's stylish LINE coat has since been named the 'Meghan' coat

The former Suits actress looked elegant and poised in a belted white trench coat, which sold out in record timer as the fiancée of Prince Harry stepped out in the design. The coat is the perfect outwear attire, for it is light enough for both warmer temperatures and when days are a little chilly, like the special engagement day! It appeared that the ‘Meghan Effect’ had already given way, with the brands website crashing after the actress donned the design. The coat is seen as a timeless item, for it could be worn with anything - tailored trousers, a dress and heels, and even over casual items like jeans. It adds a classic stance to any ensemble. The trench features a large collar, and also a high-waisted belt, so is great for defining the waist, like Meghan herself.
