Ever since the Duchess of Sussex joined the royal family, she has become a bonafide style icon! Her laid-back, LA-style outfits have always proved mega popular. But we have to say, Meghan's choice of handbags are pretty epic, too.

However, Scottish-based brand Strathberry always springs to mind when Meghan's arm candy is up for discussion; after all, it was the brand she picked for her first public royal appearance in Nottingham back in 2017.

Since then, Prince Harry's wife has been spotted carrying Strathberry bags on three different occasions, including on her official visit to Edinburgh back in 2018. Arguably her most popular choice - the stunning East/West Mini - is the most recognisable and is finally back in stock. It's available in 14 different colourways and is priced at £425. Meghan wore the design cross-body over her Burberry coat, something no other royal has done before. The fancy number features the iconic Strathberry bar closure and a gold chain strap, and comes complete with wide compartments and a cream lining. Why not treat yourself?

Meghan's Strathberry bag made headlines in 2018

Strathberry CEO Leeanne Hundleby previously spoke to HELLO!, and explained that having the Duchess carrying her bags frequently has given her business "such a boost."

When mother-of-two Meghan first carried the brand's burgundy tote, 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."
