Meghan Markle spends more on her wardrobe even if she took maternity leave and had no royal engagements. Her outfits are also more expensive than Kate Middleton, a report says.

Meghan Markle Spending More On Her Dresses Than Kate Middleton After Megxit

The former Suits star has been known for wearing designer outfits. Since she married Prince Harry, she has been rocking outfits from Dior, Givenchy, Prada, and Channel. She usually pairs her luxurious outfits with expensive accessories.


In 2021, Meghan Markle spent $78, 822 (£58,388). It was $18,899 (£14,000) more from her wardrobe expenses in 2020. She also wore jewelry worth $59,653 (£44,188), Daily Mail reported.

The outlet noted that Markle's wardrobe expenses surpassed her sister-in-law Kate Middleton who only spent $64,799.28 (£48,000).

The increase in Markle's wardrobe expenses is a bit surprising because, unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, she is no longer a working royal and has no royal engagements to attend to. But she also made several appearances, like her trip to New York when she visited the state for the Global Citizen Live event.

Also, Markle took maternity leave last year after she gave birth to baby Lili in June. So, the duchess was out of public sight for a couple of months.

However, there was a vast reduction in Markle's wardrobe expenses compared to 2019, when she spent $285,782 (£211,693) for her outfits. At the time, Prince Harry and Markle were still working royals.
