Meghan Markle is no stranger to the glamorous life, especially now that she is married to Prince Harry. Case in point: In Meghan’s first year of married life, she reportedly spent a total of $ 900,000 on clothing, Daily Mail reported. In fact, the clothing she wore for her 16-day Pacific tour with Prince Harry in 2018 came in at just $ 150,000, the outlet reported.
As such, many can’t help but pay attention to the Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe, and her influence is so powerful that any article of clothing she’s seen wearing is completely sold out in an hour or days. Vanity Fair refers to this phenomenon as the “Meghan Markle effect.”
The “Meghan Markle effect” has not slowed down recently, despite Harry and Meghan giving up their royal duties in March 2020. However, what has Markle’s penchant for glamor changed, as she appears to be opting for more casual looks now that she’s established herself in her hometown of Los Angeles. This difference was fully shown during an April 2020 Zoom call made by the Duchess of Sussex with the charity Smart Works, and the change in environment has generated headlines.

Meghan Markle’s vibe in America is much more relaxed
In a video call on April 29, 2020, Meghan Markle spoke to the charity Smart Works, which she has been a patron of since January 2019, according to Yahoo. The charity is focused on helping unemployed women find work, and Meghan appeared to provide support, even during isolation.
The video, which was shared on Instagram, shows the duchess looking relaxed and comfortable in a burgundy V-neck cashmere sweater from British company Joseph, according to Yahoo. Meghan has worn this sweater before, rocking it in a burgundy skirt in a One Young World discussion in October 2019.
As for Meghan’s glamor, she seemed to be wearing little or no makeup, seemingly opting for a low-key vibe. And her hair was styled in a half-up, half-down style, a look we’ve never seen her wear before.
For accessories, Meghan chose a very important necklace: the Edge of Ember Visionary Charm Necklace, which features a blue topaz evil eye in the center. This symbol is intended to protect its user from negative vibrations.
Apparently Meghan loves this brand because, on International Women’s Day in March 2020, she wore her Kismet Charm necklace, which brings good fortune through a four-leaf clover amulet and the number seven.
Honestly, Meghan still looks totally amazing during isolation, and it’s great to see the Duchess look more casual and homey.
