6 pictures that prove Meghan Markle's style was *very* different before she met Prince Harry

And no, it wasn't all 'Suits'.

Thanks to her major role in Suits and her (albeit brief) stint as a part of the British royal family, Meghan Markle has become one of the most well-known names in the world.

And while her acting prowess and charitable endeavours have no doubt earned her legions of fans and admirers across the globe, Meghan's sense of style has also become a source of joy and inspiration amongst the fashion crowd.

Whether she's plumping for high-end Erdem gowns or making a patriotic statement by opting for more low-key Canadian designers, Meghan's style knows no bounds. But, much like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Meghan's sartorial aesthetic was a very different story before she joined 'The Firm'.

Back in the early 2010s, before meeting her now-husband, Prince Harry, Meghan's wardrobe consisted of pared back jeans, knitted sweaters and tailored co-ords that wouldn't look out of place in any other Hollywood celebrity's early-naughties wardrobe.

Fast forward a few years and Meghan began working closely with her then-stylist, Jessica Mulroney, with whom she forged a friendship on the set of Suits as she helped style Meghan's character for the show. Jessica was even the brains behind the wedding dress Meghan tied the knot in on the show.

As Meghan's star rose in Hollywood, Jessica was on hand to style her for red carpet appearances. It was even thought that Jessica helped style Meghan for the royal wedding and, as the photos attest, Jessica was on hand to chaperone Meghan's bridal party into the church. In fact, her twin boys, Brian and John, were page boys with Prince George and her daughter, Ivy, was a bridesmaid alongside Princess Charlotte.

The women may have since reportedly gone their separate ways, but it seems Meghan's keen eye on fashion remains.

If you're in the mood to reminisce - and let's face it, we've all got a bit of time to right now - why not take a look back at the outfits Meghan wore before she met Prince Harry, as we daydream about the epic looks she might bring back now that she's stepped away from the tight sartorial constraints of the British royal family...

Pre-Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's style consisted of bootleg jeans, casual blazers and some rather regal pearls.
We've not seen Meghan in a pair of (presumably faux?) leather trousers since she married into the royal family, but we'd be keen to see them make a return to her wardrobe now that the couple have stepped back.
While the blazer-over-a-mini possibly won't be making a return into Meghan's sartorial repertoire, these black pumps should definitely make a comeback as they're bang on trend right now.
We're obsessed with this copper-coloured drape dress she wore to the GQ Men of the Year party in 2012.
Beige tonal dressing... it seems Meghan knew this trend was set to be huge at *least* seven years before the rest of us.
The ultimate shorts suit, Meghan may well become the spokesperson for this style having championed it religiously pre- wedding to Prince Harry.
