Meghan Markle’s £185 Handbag Has the Most Amazing Backstory

At her official visits this year, Meghan Markle has shown she is a handbag person, as her bags are always a focal part of her outfit, whether it’s the latest Chloé It bag or a Strathberry crossbody. Today Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise visit to Northern Ireland, and she introduced the world to an unknown handbag label with an incredible backstory. Her tan top-handle £185 Bloomsbury bag is by designer Charlotte Elizabeth who launched her accessories brand when she was 21 and had been paralysed for over a year.

“I had a heart operation in 2012 and I had to leave school at 16 because of it. I couldn’t get A Levels or go to uni, and it was hard to find employment because of my physical health conditions,” she said to The Telegraph of launching her handbag brand. “I’m one of three sisters and noticed we were never happy with an every day handbag. I had such a clear a vision of what I wanted it to be – very clean cut, minimal and inspired by classic 50s handbags, when it was an experience to have a handbag.”

She began working on the designs for her classic handbags from her bed and with the support of The Prince’s Trust was able to begin manufacturing her designs in the UK. “I thought if I can create something through all of this I can do anything,” she explained to The Telegraph. “That’s why my business is so special to me as it started at the absolute rock bottom. It has been with me through my worst moments.”

All of the Bloomsbury handbags on Charlotte Elizabeth are currently sold out, however you can pre-order Meghan’s £185 version. Keep scrolling to join the hundreds who are signing up to pre-order this tan bag.
