- Meghan Markle wore a coat from Line, a little-known Canadian brand, for her first public appearance as Prince Harry’s fiancée.
- The actress has lived in Canada for several years and reportedly met Harry in Toronto.
- Line’s website crashed soon after news broke that Markle wore the brand.
Meghan Markle gave tribute to her roots in her first public appearance after her engagement to Prince Harry was announced.
On Monday morning, Prince Harry and Markle posed for photos at Kensington Palace in London.
Markle wore a coat by the Canadian fashion brand Line.
The actress was born in the US but has resided in Toronto in recent years. The pair reportedly met in Toronto last year.
Soon after news broke that Markle wore a coat from Line on Monday, the brand’s website was slow or crashed for many people.
The couple’s plan to wed next year will make Markle a rare American to marry into the royal family.
Neither Markel nor Harry has spoken publicly about the relationship at great length. However, Markle has previously highlighted her North American roots through her fashion – she wore another Canadian brand, Aritzia, to the Invictus Games in September for the couple’s first public appearance together.
