How to nab Meghan Markle’s sold out tote

Allison Yee

Step aside Kate Middleton, it’s all about the Meghan Markle effect and for those wanting to follow in the fashion footsteps of our favourite bride-to-be, there’s one way to get your hands on one of her most lusted after accessories.

Meghan made headlines around the world when she attended the Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair at Nottingham earlier this month.

But while everyone was buzzing about her and fiancé Prince Harry’s adorably touchy-feely display, style lovers were losing it over her beautiful burgandy tote by Scottish brand Strathberry.

Cue an international frenzy and the handbag selling out around the world in just over 10 minutes.

For those that missed out, there’s one way you can get Meghan’s handbag – and it’s actually for a good cause.

Strathberry are now acutioning off the last remaining tote on their website to raise funds for the Terrence Higgins trust.

“We were delighted to see Ms Markle carrying her Strathberry Midi Tote, a design which sold out within minutes on and which will remain unavailable until restocking in January/February,” the company explain on their website.

“We do however have one remaining Midi Tote in the same design, which came from the same small batch of production as Ms Markle's bag.

“As a gesture of gratitude Strathberry are auctioning this bag with all proceeds going to The Terrence Higgins Trust.”

If you do miss out, never fear, Strathberry are heading to our shores with their Meghan Markle-endorsed goods on select David Jones shelves from April.
