According to reports, the 36-year-old bagged a bargain when it came to searching for the perfect outfit for her first royal Christmas with Prince Harry last week.
The Sun reports the Californian beauty chose a burgundy ‘Tay’ velvet dress from Canadian clothes brand Club Monaco for lunch at Sandringham with the Queen, which costs approximately $298.
Hidden under a Sentaler wide-collar camel coat during her public appearance on Christmas Day, the dress features short, ruffled sleeves, a belted waist, and cuts just below the knee.
Taking to Instagram, a representative from Club Monaco said: “A very short term #fbf to Christmas Day when we got a peek at the lovely @meghanmarkle wearing our velvet Tay dress to visit the royal family.”

3% Of Millennials Believe Mariah Carey Wrote ‘Auld Lang Syne’
“Auld Lang Syne” has long been a traditional part of the annual celebrations, especially in Scotland.
But a new poll has found some people are very confused about the anthem’s origins.
Written in 1788 by Scottish poet Robert Burns, the song is set to the tune of a traditional folk song and is sung to say farewell to the past 12 months.
A new poll, however, has found the three per cent of 18-24-year-olds believe Mariah Carey wrote the song.
45 percent of those polled also thought Snoop Dogg’s lyrics to his song New Year’s Eve – “And every time I see you shine. It’s like the lights of midnight. On New Year’s Eve” – were part of the song.
40 percent of those polled mistakenly identified lyrics from The Beatles songs as Auld Lang Syne, 60 percent thought Abba lyrics were from the song, and 34 percent thought Taylor Swift lyrics were sung.
