The Duchess of Sussex has a handbag collection most would envy. From chic crossbody bags to vintage designer pieces and satin box clutches — the mom of two has a carefully curated handbag collection.
As a working royal, Meghan most often was spotted with single flap pochettes, slim clutches and a handful of chain crossbody bags. But now living in California — the former Tig blogger is embracing a beachy aesthetic and has been drawn to deep bucket bags which are spacious enough for carrying mom essentials as well everyday items like a cellphone, wallet and touch-up cosmetics like lipgloss or powder.
Here are Meghan Markle’s Six Most Stylish Bucket Bags:
This chic drawstring crossbody bag has cotton and leather detailing along with gold studded hardware. The Klay is perfect to for running errands, cocktails with girlfriends or school runs with the kids.
2. Lacoste Chantaco Bucket Bag
Worn for a Good Housekeeping photo shoot, the future royal was all smiles showing off a nautical minded style statement. Playing the part of captain, Meghan brought this bicolor premium leather bag accented with a drawstring fastening on board her own private sailboat.
3. Proenza Schouler Bucket Bag in White
Future royal bride Meghan brought this tiny grey bucket bag to Malta to visit a wine estate on behalf of Elle Magazine in March 2015. The Suits star toted this practical mini bag to visit this dreamy island in the Mediterranean and sample snacks, sightsee and spend time by the sea.
A supple leather bag with a fashion-forward braided top handle and chic contrast stitching — Meghan carried this Italian made bag for a shopping trip in Montecito in October 2022.
On a sushi date night with husband Prince Harry in Santa Barbara in mid-May 2023, the duchess was all smiles as she carried her Italian made bucket bag designed with an organic cotton canvas upper, gold-plated brass hardware and a basket bottom handwoven by female artisans in Rwanda. Meghan’s natural Cesta melange bag is the perfect addition to her collection of mom-on-the-go style staples.
Handcrafted in Florence with rolled top handles and gold hardware, this tan bucket bag is large enough for an iPad or substantial enough for a trove of baby gear (perfect for carrying Princess Lilibet’s essentials).
