With her love for neutral tones and reduced designs, in addition to the cuts that hang from the figure that show her small waist and her enviable legs, Meghan Markle has a characteristic style that is instantly recognizable.
But four months after her marriage to Prince Harry, what draws attention is what the Duchess of Sussex does not use, of the 22 sets in which she has appeared since joining the Royal Family, only two have been of British stamps.
Since July, most of the time she is seen dressed in designs from North America, usually first class brands such as Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta.

It has also favored legendary European fashion houses such as Prada, Dior and Givenchy.
Some may think that it is a curious decision for a new member of our royal family, someone who surely wants to win public opinion in his adoptive homeland.
And, after all, the so-called "Kate effect" – where everything the Duchess of Cambridge sells instantly sells – is calculated to boost the UK economy by around £ 152 million a year.

Thanks to Markle's high profile in the USA UU., She could do the same. So why favor remote designers instead of local names?
A former actress who created a lifestyle blog (The Tig), Meghan is likely to have joined The Firm & # 39; with pre-established favorite designers, as well as friends and contacts in the fashion industry.
And as an American who spent a lot of time working in Toronto filming the TV series Suits, it's no surprise that he often prefers Canadian fashion brands that are virtually unknown in the UK.

Among them, House of Nonie – the pink gabardine dress she wore at the Southbank Center in July – and Judith & Charles, the black wool tuxedo mini dress she chose for a charity performance for Hamilton last month.
While Meghan has long been a supporter of the Calgary House of Nonie brand, there is another reason why the Duchess could favor these brands: her close friendship with Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney, whose three young children were among the attendees to Meghan's wedding.
Jessica is also a great fan of House of Nonie and, although Meghan does not have an official stylist, Jessica may be performing that duty for her. It certainly helped her choose the House of Nonie dress: the founder of the label, Nina Kharey, wrote on Instagram & # 39; thank Jessica Mulroney #wearcanada proud & # 39 ;, and said Hello! Canada & # 39;[Jessica has] I have been a client of some of my pieces and is also a strong advocate for Canadian designers, so I'm sure she showed [Meghan] my book of looks & # 39;

It is impossible to believe that Meghan is not aware of the strong message sent by the clothes: as Harry's fiancee, she wore a Scotch sack to go to Scotland and Welsh cowboys on her first official visit to Wales.
So, although his partner Jessica Mulroney might want to boost Canadian brands, it might be more appropriate for her new role if Meghan were the UK designers' champion, especially our promising talent.
