Meghan Markle Loves Strathberry Handbags. Here’s Where You Can Buy One for Yourself.
Once her romance with Prince Harry went public last year, Meghan Markle became a bona fide fashion icon, and the brands she wears rocket to instant popularity. That was definitely the case for Strathberry. The future Duchess of Sussex carried one of the Scottish brand’s handbags at her first public outing after her engagement was announced. The bag sold out in an astonishing 11 minutes.
Since then, Meghan’s been spotted with Strathberry bags several times. It’s clear she’s committed to the brand, which makes sleek, stylish, and functional leather bags. And now, it’s easier than ever to get your hands on one.
You can now buy Strathberry bags at Nordstrom
Nordstrom is now carrying a small selection of Strathberry bags.
Among them is the Tricolor Midi Leather Tote in navy, sand, and ember, which is similar to the bag Meghan toted when she visited Nottingham with Prince Harry in 2017. It costs $740.
You can also get the East/West Leather Crossbody bag in red, gray, or black for $700. Meghan carried the mini version of this bag in green when she visited Scotland in early 2018. A bicolor version in navy and sand is $775, while a mini version in gray with a navy, red, and white stripe is $675.
Finally, there’s the Nano Leather tote in black or ruby. The petite satchel is $420.
Other places to buy Strathberry bags
Nordstrom isn’t the only U.S. retailer stocking this suddenly popular brand. Saks Fifth Avenue also carries more than two dozen Strathberry styles, including the Mini East/West Crossbody Meghan’s been seen with. It’s available in bottle green or canary for $605.
You can also shop online at the Strathberry website, where you can buy everything from a cardholder for $110 to a tote embellished with a dragon design for $1,450. Shipping to the U.S. is free if you spend more than $300.
How to find a deal on your Strathberry handbag
Compared to some handbags which can sell for thousands of dollars, Strathberry’s offerings are pretty affordable. But if you’re not will to spend top-dollar for one of these Duchess-approved purses, you might still be able to find a deal.
Check resale apps like Poshmark, Tradesy, and the RealReal if you’re willing to settle for a gently used Strathberry, or if you’re looking for a color or design that you can’t find in store.
Meghan’s other favorite (affordable) bags
Strathberry isn’t the only handbag brand Meghan carries, and a few of her other favorites are even more affordable than Strathberry.
She carried a practical Everlane tote when she attended the Invictus games with Harry. It costs $175 and is available in seven colors. In July, Meghan accessorized with a rattan clutch from J. Crew that cost less than $100. (Unfortunately, it’s sold out.)
A crossbody bag from Australian brand Oroton costs $221, though it’s on backorder until January 2019. Meghan carried this bag in April when she attended a fuction with Prince Harry. The Mini Venice bag Meghan carried on a recent visit to Wales is from DeMellier London and costs $395.
Combine these budget-friendly bags with the Duchess’s other affordable styles, and it’s proof you don’t have to spend a fortune to dress like royalty.
