From a young actress in New York in 2016 to a new royal enjoying Ascot with her husband the Duke this year, Meghan has never put a sartorial foot wrong. With her first birthday as a royal approaching, no doubt the Duchess of Sussex, who turns 37 on Saturday, is looking back at the past 12 months and reflecting on just how much her life has transformed.

After all, at this time last year Meghan was not even engaged to Prince Harry and the couple had still to make their first official appearance together. Now she has a role at the heart of the royal family, allowing her to serve her new country and carry out work for the causes close to her heart.
