Having recently worn a bespoke Philip Treacy felt hat for the Christmas Day church service in Sandringham and a couture Ralph & Russo gown (estimated to cost a whopping $75,000!) for her official engagement photos, I've been losing faith that I'll ever be able to recreate Meghan Markle's iconic fashion moments.

After all, dressing like a princess doesn't come cheap, and I love my job, but I'm no princess!

But according to reports, the 36-year-old bagged a bargain when it came to searching for the perfect outfit for her first royal Christmas with Prince Harry last week.

The Sun reports the Californian beauty chose a burgundy 'Tay' velvet dress from Canadian clothes brand Club Monaco for lunch at Sandringham with the Queen, which costs approximately $298. I can work with that!


Hidden under a Sentaler wide-collar camel coat during her public appearance on Christmas Day, the dress features short, ruffled sleeves, a belted waist, and cuts just below the knee.


Taking to Instagram, a representative from Club Monaco said: "A very short term #fbf to Christmas Day when we got a peek at the lovely @meghanmarkle wearing our velvet Tay dress to visit the royal family."

Congrats to all involved — in particular that velvet dress, which is currently 30-percent off and not yet sold out! BRB!
