Meghan Markle's Janessa Leone straw hats

Meghan can't get enough of the straw beach hats by Janessa Leone – she owns both the natural wheat braid straw 'Serena' hat and the raffia ‘Sammy’ hat, which have both unfortunately sold out!

Meghan Markle's dark brown Cuyana straw hat

And during the Fourth of July 2022, Meghan took a family trip with Prince Harry to Wyoming, where the Duchess kept the sun out of her eyes with a gorgeous chocolate-hued wide brimmed Panama hat by Cuyana.

Duchess Meghan often wears the woman-built sustainable, fair trade label which promotes a “fewer, better” lifestyle, and true Meghan fashion fans might even remember the beautiful $348 wrap coat she wore in South Africa.

The Cuyana hat is "handmade with love" by artisans in Ecuador, and comes in five neutral colours ranging from natural to black.
