Even before her official royal days, Meghan Markle solidified her place at the top of the fashion game. During her time as an actress, Meghan wore mini-dresses, leather pants, and just about every other stylish thing we could imagine. But now that she's a duchess, her style has been elevated to a whole new level. Sure, gone are the days where Meghan can throw on a pair of shorts or jeans and suffer no repercussions, but this sacrifice was most certainly worth it, because the clothes she wears now are simply divine. Better yet ... regal. Her new HRH status does limit her fashion options a bit, but the things the Duchess of Sussex has done with her choices are amazing.

With the royal fashion budget this duchess has, it's no wonder that everything she steps out in immediately sends everyone into a fit of envy. Meghan has only been an official royal for less than a year, but she's already making us forget that she ever wore a pair of shorts. It's also amazing to think that she's still only months on the job, and she has yet to repeat a style or a dress. However, given her sister-in-law Kate Middleton's habit of re-wearing, we expect that it's only a matter of time before Meghan digs deep into her closet for an old ensemble.

But for now, Meghan should bask in the glory of her new clothes ... and her new royal style. From classic coats to dresses that Queen Elizabeth most certainly doesn't approve of, this new duchess has tried just about everything to find her signature royal look. And from where we stand, it seems that she found it pretty quickly. So, here are Meghan's 40 best royal outfits to date.

  • Tuxedo Dress
