Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall took inspiration from Duchess Meghan as she borrowed a piece from one of her iconic looks.

Over the years, the royal ladies have demonstrated their impeccable sense of style throughout their various public events and engagements.

From Duchess Meghan’s stunning Givenchy wedding dress to Duchess Camilla’s showstopping wide-leg navy jumpsuit and Duchess Kate’s envy-inducing shoe wardrobe, the royals have got us all constantly investing in the statement pieces they step out in.

And it seems like it’s not just us who the trendy ladies inspire – they even give inspiration to each other.

During one of her most recent engagements, the Duchess of Cornwall was seen in an elegant dark green outfit completed with a stylish handbag.

The Mini Venice handbag by London brand DeMellier comes in a chic forest grain leather finish with gold buckles.

And it looks like the Duchess may have taken inspiration from her step- daughter-in-law the Duchess of Sussex.

Duchess Meghan stepped out with the same bag back in 2018, during one of hers and Prince Harry’s first engagements after getting engaged towards the end of 2017.

The Duchess, then known as Meghan Markle, visited Cardiff Castle alongside her then-fiancé Prince Harry.

And as always, the former TV actress, looked stunning in her casual daytime outfit.

About our deals

Duchess Meghan cosied up in the winter cold in a warm tie-waist coast and skinny trousers with a pair of chunky-heeled black suede boots.

And the royal was seen carrying the same elegant handbag as Duchess Camilla used last month.

We wonder if the Duchesses went out on a shopping spree together…

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
