Back in 2017, Prince Harry's stunning (then) fiancée Meghan Markle worked the crowd during the happy couple's first joint royal engagement in Nottingham and everyone loved the bride-to-be's outfit! One of the items that went viral instantly was the actress's gorgeous Strathberry handbag. The plush tote, priced at £545, comes in a variety of shades but Meghan opted for a rich burgundy, which sold out in an incredible 11 minutes after the photos surfaced. If, like us, you've had your eye on this bag ever since, you will be pleased to know that it's going into the Black Friday sale! The Strathberry Midi Tote and a whole host of other bags will be discounted - up to 30 percent - from 26 November until 2 December.

Revealing how she felt when she discovered Meghan had been pictured with the bag, Leeanne said: "We had no idea Meghan would be wearing the bag in Nottingham. We first realised something was going on when people started to call the office and ask if Meghan was carrying our bag."
