Honestly, we didn't think it was possible to envy the Duchess of Sussex's wardrobe any more than we already do.

Whether she's donning cut-out dresses at the polo, Hermès coats in Canada or 90s-inspired outfits at film premieres, Meghan has the most impressive collection of designer items and we literally want every single piece.

Recently, she's been out on multiple occasions showcasing her sartorial prowess in a variety of top-notch looks, But it was her stunning vintage earring collection that has captured our attention every time.

From watching the Duke of Sussex play polo in Chanel to vintage Lanvin during her three-day trip to Nigeria, see some of her most glamorous retro pieces so far...

For a reception held at the Nigerian Defence Headquarters in Abuja, she stunned in a strapless column maxi dress by St Agni Studio, with Aquazzura ‘So Nude 105’ slingbacks and, of course, lashings of gold jewellery.

She paired her with the timeless Ariel Gordon diamond tennis bracelet, Cartier ‘Love’ bracelet, and Lorraine Schwartz's 'Against Evil Eye’ bracelet with vintage 'Gold Tone Love Knot' clip-on earrings from Dior.

Meghan perfected casual elegance in a Heidi Merrick maxi dress. Her jewellery selection proves the power of classic gold - she wore her go-to Cartier watch, bracelet and an Ariel Gordon tennis bracelet. 

In yet another stunning vintage earring moment, she opted for Lanvin Couture clip-ons featuring amethyst and citrine crystals.

Meghan in vintage... Chanel

To watch Prince Harry play polo in Florida in April, at an event held to raise money for his charity Sentebale, Meghan oozed sophistication in the 'Ginger' ivory silk dress from Heidi Merrick which she elevated with nude court heels from Aquazzura, a white and gold Valentino crossbody bag, gold jewellery including her Cartier Tank Française watch, and oversized black shades also by Heidi Merrick.

The pièce de résistance was her stunning disc-shaped gold vintage Chanel earrings. The jewellery perfected the balance between understated and striking - large enough to make a statement that says 'elegant glamour' but they're unfussy, not complicated and completely versatile.

Meghan in vintage... Dior (again)

She proved the power of the LBD at the Sentebale ‘Potential is Waiting’ panel discussion and seated dinner wearing a black, asymmetrical midi dress from Stagni.

Though her shoes were not visible in the images taken, author of So Many Thoughts on Royal Style Elizabeth Holmes reported on Instagram that she was told Meghan wore Mach & Mach shoes and Dior earrings that were most likely vintage. The dazzling bijouterie featured rhinestones and a contrasting black hoop - a signature design of Christian Dior's earrings around the 1980s.

Granted, Meghan's wardrobe is full of luxury gems, but she's often much more versatile with her accessories, whether she's wearing £46 bargains or Carolina Herrera designer steals. But her latest accessories roster possesses items that are unique and hard to come by. 

Could this be the first change to come under the guidance of her new fashion stylist? Let's wait and find out...
