Did Meghan Markle hint at royal family exit with her fashion?

With royal fans (not to mention a blindsided Buckingham Palace) still reeling over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s announcement that they’re stepping back from their senior roles in the monarchy, what’s next for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?

In this week’s episode of “Royal Roundtable,” we’re breaking down the drama swirling around Harry and Meghan’s major news — and discussing the fate of her royal wardrobe, which has evolved enormously over the past year.

Back when she first became a duchess in 2018, Markle constantly stepped out in brand-new designer duds from labels like Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, and was sometimes criticized for her expensive taste.

But since last summer, the duchess has “gone almost completely high street,” according to royal expert Emma Forbes, reaching for looks from less-expensive brands like J.Crew, Aritzia and Massimo Dutti.

She’s also increasingly opted to recycle old favorites rather than debut something new — seemingly foreshadowing her and Prince Harry’s decision to sever financial ties with the monarchy and start earning their own income.

Below, a look at Markle’s evolution from designer duchess to accessible style star:
