Meghan Markle's sell-out glasses are FINALLY back in stock (but it has taken 180 days)

Prince Harry's fiancée has incredible selling power!

Laura Sutcliffe

Meghan Markle is having an effect on fashion in a BIG way. Everything the fiancée of Prince Harry wears sells out – and gets re-named in her honour. Be it handbags, dress coats, tailored trousers and shoes – the former Suits actress has the wardrobe we all want. Last year, the American actress caused a sensation when she went to the Invictus Games with then-boyfriend Prince Harry – and all eyes were (literally) on her fabulous tortoiseshell sunglasses by Finlay & Co. The £120 Percy Light Tortoise frames sold thousands and thousands of pairs after Meghan, 36, wore them. Pre-orders came in from over 50 countries from around the world and it has taken a whopping 180 days – but they are finally back in stock online!

The bride-to-be is also a fan of personalising her fashion items – she even has 'MM' engraved on the arm of her favourite sunglasses – and fans have been following in her footsteps but getting their own initials engraved on the stylish sunglasses – which costs an extra £40 on the brand's website.

The co-founder of the brand David Lochhead explained how the 'Meghan Effect' has profited his business even more than A-list celebrities: "Around 75% of all pairs sold online in the last six months were of the Percy style. We've had lots of customers coming in-store and asking to try the Percy style on. We have seen a sales uplift in the past from celebrities such as Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne wearing FINLAY, however, the impact from Meghan wearing has been on a different scale."

A similar chain of events happened when Meghan visited Scotland on an official visit in February – and her small green Stathberry handbag took centre stage when she wore it cross-body. The stunning East/West Mini tote, which is priced at £425 sold out instantly and is now available to pre-order due to popular demand.
