While Prince Harry was busy supporting the Invictus Games, his wife was equally busy with a side hustle of her own – one not quite so worthy of cause as her husband’s, but which is equally dear to her heart. For – in her own head, at least – Meghan is patron of the Label Games, that fascinating sport, played predominantly (though not exclusively) by women whose goal is to assert their status through their wardrobe. Think of it as a bit like Top Trumps, only with Chanel as the Jack.
Or in Meghan’s case, Chanel, Valentino and Celine. With absolutely no nod whatsoever to the dire financial circumstances that all but the one per cent find themselves plunged into this year, Meghan packed an estimated £38,000 worth of clothes, accessories and jewellery for her trip, including a £3,200 Valentino suit, a £2,700 Celine jacket and a Cartier Love bracelet worth £5,800. The latter is no indicator of profligacy, since it belonged to Princess Diana. Her £12,800 Cartier necklace, however, is thought to be new.
