Meghan Markle Hinted at Her Engagement Before It Was Confirmed — With This Clever Shirt
Remember when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance as a couple? It was the third day of the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto when they walked out hand in hand during the wheelchair tennis event, adorable smiles plastered on their faces as the cameras snapped away. All eyes were immediately on Meghan's casual-chic outfit, and phew, it certainly didn't disappoint. She rolled the sleeves of her white Misha Nonoo button-down to the elbows and styled it with distressed Mother jeans, Sarah Flint bow flats, a brown Everlane tote bag, and Finlay & Co. sunglasses. Needless to say, the pieces sold out quickly, and waitlists for many of the products she wore ensued.
Eagle-eyed royal family fans who tracked down Meghan's Misha Nonoo shirt online were quick to point out an interesting detail: it was, and still is to this day, called the Husband Shirt. At the time, many assumed it was her cheeky way of indicating her intentions to eventually tie the knot with Harry down the line. But as it turns out, she and Harry were apparently already engaged at that point — despite the fact that they waited until two months after the Invictus Games to officially announce the news.
According to royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand's new book Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, Meghan seemingly hinted at their little secret by wearing the Husband Shirt — quite the clever selection, if we do say so ourselves. Plus, Misha is the person who brought Meghan and Harry together in the first place, so it's a pretty sweet way to say "thanks for introducing me to my dream guy, pal!"
Although pieces worn by Meghan have consistently sold out in the past, the Husband Shirt is, indeed, still in stock today. You can shop it ahead before looking back on all the picture-perfect photos from their debut as a couple. Oh, the nostalgia!
