Here's Where To Buy A White Coat That Will Make You Look Exactly Like Meghan Markle In Her Engagement Photos
After more than a year of dating and plenty of speculation on their relationship, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged. As part of their engagement announcement, Markle was photographed wearing a perfectly luxe white wrap coat, the perfect bridal-adjacent outwear for the new princess-to-be. According to a tweet from Elle UK Digital Editor Jessica Vince, the coat is from Line The Label, a Canadian knitwear company.
“We are incredibly honored that Meghan chose to wear a LINE coat to mark this very special occasion," President and Co-Founder of LINE, John Muscat, said in astatement. "Meghan has an effortlessly chic sense of style, which we’ve always admired. We know this particular coat is one of her favourite pieces so we have officially decided to name it the ‘Meghan.’ We are elated for Meghan and wish her a lifetime of happiness with Prince Harry.”
A deep dive into the Line The Label website (currently down due to what one can assume is Markle-related traffic), the coat retailed at $799 CAD. It's a winter white wrap coat with a wide lapel and a belt, and though it is included in the on-site lookbook, finding the actual garment might be a challenge. Line The Label is sold in stores all over the United States and Canada. The website also directs to the Saks website, but it appears that no merchandise from Line The Label is available at this time.
If you're not into the idea of hunting this particular jacket down, but still want to channel Markle's epically royal look, never fear: There are other options available that you don't need to hire a private shopping investigator to find. First, let's take a look at Markle's look:
The newly engaged Markle wore the coat over what appears to be a hunter green dress, and paired with nude heels. The look is minimal and chic, and perfect for a particularly mild fall and winter.
According to Harper's Bazaar, Prince Harry proposed to Markle in early November 2017, and the wedding will take place in Spring 2018. The images of Markle in the stunning white coat come from a photo call the couple held at Kensington Palace, inside the Sunken Garden — a memorial to Princess Diana. Harper's also reported that Harry designed the rock himself, using from a brooch owned by Princess Diana.
The original coat is hard to find, but there are some amazing options to recreate the look. The best part? They're all available to non-future-royals.

A New Day Women's Wool Shawl Collar Wrap Coat, $69.99, target.com
This option is perfect for those of us who love the style of Markle's coat, but just so happen to avoid all things white for fear of wine stains. The slightly darker color will conceal all your decidedly non-royal clumsiness.

ELOQUII x Katie Sturino Tie Waist Robe Coat, $149.90, eloquii.com
Another option that's a bit darker than Markle's light white coat, but perfect for those plus size shoppers who want something in the same style that's less of a stain magnet.
Long Wrap Coat

This plus size option has a slightly different silhouette than Markle's coat, as it has versatile lapels that can be worn buttoned up for maximum warmth or open for a more casual look.
We can't all necessarily marry into centuries-old high status families, or track down luxury outwear with ease — however, even if you're as far away from Kensington Palace as one can be, you can still rock Meghan Markle's engagement photo style and feel royal AF.
