Since her very first outing with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has had retailers everywhere crossing fingers and toes that she picks their brand for a hit of that “Markle Effect”. Each time she steps out, there’s a mad dash to quickly snatch up the exact styles of clothing, shoes, accessories, and makeup products that she’s seen wearing before they (inevitably) sell out. And while the Duchess of Sussex has seemingly unlimited options when it comes to her wardrobe, there are quite a few brands that she has worn on repeat. One of them being Edinburgh-based luxury handbag label, Strathberry.

Founded in 2013 and known for its timeless-but-still-on-trend leather goods, Strathberry’s ladylike handbags are defined by their clean lines and signature bar closure. Meghan has been seen carrying the brand’s designs since her very first official royal outing with Prince Harry in Nottingham in December 2017. The burgundy, navy, and, cream colorblocked tote that she carried not only sold out completely, but it sold out within 11 seconds.

Meghan was then spotted stepping out in February for a royal engagement in Edingburgh carrying the label’s East/West Leather Crossbody bag in Bottle Green to match her navy and green tartan plaid coat. And on her royal visit to Ireland in July, she was again seen carrying Strathberry's leather tote.


All three of her gorgeous leather bags have been out of stock for months, so getting your hands on one of them has seemed like a nearly impossible feat — until now. Lucky for us, Nordstrom just secretly restocked all three bag styles Meghan has carried! While it’s a bit more of an investment bag, the fact that the Duchess has carried the brand on multiple occasions is enough to make us think it’s worth every penny.

What’s even luckier is that Nordstrom secretly slashed prices on select styles of Meghan’s beloved Strathberry bags. This means you can snag a version of the Duchess’ East/West Leather Crossbody Bag for 33 percent off and her Midi Convertible Tote for just $503. But like everything else she wears (and given how quickly they sold out last time), we have a feeling these bags won’t be available much longer. So scroll down and snag your favorite Strathberry handbag on sale before it’s too late!
