From her belted Mackie coat worn at her engagement photo call in November 2017 to the knotted strap worn she donned last week at the wedding of Prince Harry's childhood friend, Charlie Van Straubenzee, there's denying the Duchess's love for the somewhat overlooked accessory.
Like any father I wanted to say a few words. "I told her they wouldn't be able to come because they would never be able to afford the flight but that it would be a nice gesture on her part". "No one came to my door in Mexico", Thomas revealed.
In hindsight, he admits Harry was "absolutely right" to criticise him. I'm not mad at Meghan.
Depending how trustworthy you find tabloids, there is growing evidence that Ragland is preparing to move to London to be closer to Meghan, her only child.
Mr Markle said that he had been so upset at being berated while he recovered in hospital from a heart attack that he put the phone down on the prince.

Previous year also saw her release her most recent record, " A Brand New Me ", which marked her 42nd studio album. Her mother died before her 10th birthday and not long after, Franklin started singing in her first solo shows.
Mr Markle has also revealed he has not spoken to his daughter since the wedding and that he feels he had been "cut off" as a punishment for staging the fake paparazzi pictures.
Markle also made headlines when he pulled out of walking his daughter down the aisle for the Royal Wedding just days before it was set to take place.
However, despite locking horns with Harry, 33, over the pictures, Thomas was expecting the couple to visit him in the USA after their honeymoon - particularly as he had just undergone extensive surgery on his heart - but his wish never came true. It was Meghan who dealt with the most painful blow when she told her father he would not be allowed to make a speech at the wedding.
Thomas Markle has continued speaking to British media despite reports that Kensington Palace aides were trying to reach out to him and persuade him to stop.
In an interview with Marie Claire in 2013, she said: "I love to cook. The liaison with the royal family never answers back and there's no address I can write to", Markle said in video clips on the Sun website.
