Meghan Markle's Wimbledon 2019 blazer

Is the Duchess of Sussex your new Wimbledon fashion icon? Her preppy white blazer can be yours for £169…

Meghan Markle – or, to use her official royal title, the Duchess of Sussex – made a surprise appearance at Wimbledon on Thursday (4 July) to support her friend Serena Williams on Court One.

Dressed in a black cami, blue jeans, black courts, Panama hat and sunglasses, Meghan looked effortlessly stylish as she took her seat to watch her friend battle it out against Kaja Juvan.

All eyes, though, were on her preppy white blazer.

Meghan has always been a fashion icon, with pretty much every single thing she wears selling out almost instantly – a phenomenon which has since been dubbed the ‘Meghan effect’.

Despite the surge of interest in striped blazers after her Wimbledon appearance, though, it seems Meghan’s striped number is still available to buy online.

Better still? It’s on sale, too.

The L’Agence blazer – crafted from linen and fully lined – usually retails for $550. However, it’s currently on sale at Off Saks Fifth Avenue for $199.99. Or, y’know, £168.72, if you’re paying with the Queen’s currency.

And, if you’re interested in Meghan’s hat (and why wouldn’t you be, eh?), it clocks in at $60 – or £54.60 – on Madewell, the almost-century-old Canadian haberdashery.

While Meghan’s appearance at Wimbledon came as a surprise to many, Williams has since admitted that she knew her pal would be coming along.

“Yes I knew she was there and it’s always exciting when she comes out to watch and support the tennis so I was happy,” she said, as reported by Hello.

However, the tennis star dismissed rumours that she will become a godparent to Meghan’s baby son Archie Harrison on Saturday 6 July. Indeed, she will not be attending the royal christening, because… well, because she’s one of the world’s leading tennis players, Wimbledon is on, and she’s got work to do.

Williams, who is set to compete in Wimbledon’s mixed doubles alongside Andy Murray today, said: “I’m working on Saturday… [and Meghan] understands work.”

For those who are not already aware, Williams first met Markle met at a charity football game in 2014, and the duo have remained in touch ever since.

Indeed, in a Q&A with Williams posted to Meghan’s (now closed) lifestyle website The Tig, the royal dished on their friendship, saying: “We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff.

“So began our friendship […] and she quickly became a confidante I would text when I was travelling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down-to-earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto.”

Meghan added: “We are both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces, and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations – our endless ambition.”

All hail the power of female friendship, eh?
