Whether it’s for her fashion sense or her humanitarian work, Meghan Markle is an influencer on the rise.
Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, is an icon to many, but who are the ladies she looks up to?
So today we will talk about who all are her influences and inspirations? We take a look:
Her Mom, Doria Ragland
Meghan Markle has always credited her mom for her passion of yoga — but more importantly, the act of giving back. “My mom’s a yoga instructor, but she manages social work as well, and she works particularly with the geriatric society,” she wrote in an article for Glamour magazine. “For me to observe this level of life-long sensitivity to nurturing and caregiving, but at the same time, my mom has always been a free spirit. We can just have so much joy and time together, and yet, I’ll still find so much solace in her support. That duality synchronises the identical way it would in a best friend.”
Sharing a love of the chic French fashion house Givenchy, it’s obvious to see that Meghan catches more than a little fashion influence from the late actress and philanthropist, Audrey Hepburn. Meghan’s white silk Givenchy wedding gown was similar in fashion to not one, but two dresses Hepburn wore during her career.

Before becoming a member of the royal family, we often saw an off-duty Meghan in ripped jeans and ballet pumps. Her extra-casual appearances are inspired by another French style icon: Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris. In an interview with U.K’s Glamour magazine, Meghan revealed her go-to date night outfit would simply be jeans, a nice top and a blazer.
Rosie the Riveter
When it comes to campaigning for women’s rights, Meghan started young. “Growing up, I had a poster in my room of Rosie flexing her biceps,” she wrote in the Glamour essay. “When I was in grade school, I saw this sexist commercial for dish soap. With Rosie’s ‘We can do it!’ mantra in mind, I wrote a letter to Procter & Gamble, Hillary Clinton and Nick News anchor Linda Ellerbee, who sent a camera crew to meet me. Guess what? They changed the commercial.”

The pre-teen even filmed a video which featured on the news channel and in 2015, speaking at a U.N. Women’s conference, recalled her first brush with feminist activism: “At the age of 11, I created my small level of impact by standing up for equality.”
