The royal wedding is less than 24 hours away, and we don't know about you, but we can't contain our excitement! Meghan Markle has dominated our every thought since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced, of course. And while we celebrate all things royal wedding, we have to continue our appreciation of all things Meghan Markle—especially her style. Our powerhouse American princess has taken royal tradition and put her own spin on it when it comes to fashion. From wearing pantsuits, to cross bodybags, ditching pantyhose, and the much-lauded messy bun, this is one princess-to-be who is here to be taken seriously, and that means putting the Markle sparkle front and center. With every eye on her every sartorial move, it's no surprise our girl has stepped up her fashion game, and like Kate Middleton before her, turned the Meghan Markle Effect into a real thing. Retailers can't seem to keep the items Meghan steps out in in stock, and we can't wait to see what happens the minute she steps out at Windsor Castle in her wedding dress.

While we're majorly looking forward to the minute Meghan Markle and Prince Harry say "I do," we're taking a moment before the royal wedding madness to look back on Meghan's seriously enviable royal style. From the white coat she wore to the engagement announcement, to the navy blue dress she wore on her last day as a single lady. Keep scrolling for all of Meghan Markle's royal style moments so far.

OMG, a royal is wearing mismatched earrings! And we love it. Meghan continued to flirt with breaking royal protocol in a Stella McCartney coat, over a Theory blouse, Hiut Denim pants, Tabitha Simmons boots, and a DeMellier London Venice bag.
