Sophia Money-Coutts, author and former features director at Tatler, dreams up a chic new wardrobe from Holland Cooper fit for a royal... 

So they’re getting married. Then what? Well, Meghan and Harry are expected to travel quite a bit over the next few months, perhaps off on a foreign Commonwealth jaunt and to Sydney for the Invictus Games in the autumn. But there will be engagements back home in Britain, too. And perhaps the odd shooting weekend, standing dutifully alongside her new husband. So Meghan needs tweed. And thick layers. And better hats. She needs all of the below, in fact.

 Chelsea Pencil Skirt

 Rumour has it Meghan’s Suits character, Rachel Zane, was contractually obliged to wear her swishy hair down. As a sassy lawyer, she also wore a number of high-waisted pencil skirts, loose shirt tucked in. A classic look – so long as you haven’t eaten too much lunch.

 

Windsor Jacket in Black

Meghan is into black. She wears it a lot. And with its particularly fitting name, she should throw this military black jacket into the mix.

How to win over your new father-in-law? Wear a tweed that’s named after him. Also, talk to him about his plants. He’s very into his plants.

 

Knightsbridge Blazer in Red Tartan

She wore a navy and green Burberry tartan coat to Scotland when visiting Scotland with Harry last year. Next time, she could shake it up with a brighter pattern.
