Let's face it ... just about everyone is drawn to the California cool-girl attitude, right? This is something Meghan Markle has been showing off long before she met Prince Harry, and well, it makes her absolutely irresistible. Before she married the adorable Harry, Meghan was all about her blog The Tig, having drinks with her girlfriends, and swapping acting war stories. Things have changed quite a bit now that she's meeting with dignitaries and important public figures, but that hasn't made us want to be her best friend any less. In fact, we might was to join her inner circle even more now that she's earned her HRH status.

Now, this isn't because she has access to all of the royal perks now, but it's because the Duchess of Sussex has grown so much since she became a royal. And we think that would make her even a better friend than before. 

Sure, Meghan has an amazing closet (from before and after her royal status) and she's already friends with a long list of celebrities, but the Duchess of Sussex is also incredibly kind, gentle, and smart. We know from her marrying Prince Harry that she can appreciate a good joke or gag too, so why wouldn't Meghan be the person that we want at our girlfriend brunches?

Plus, being a member of Meghan's inner circle of friends also means direct access to the adorable Archie Harrison, and who wouldn't love that? So, because Meghan is the girlfriend we all wish we had, here are all the reasons we want to join her inner ranks of friendship.

  • Access to Her Amazing Closet
