With this new revelation, it looks like their relationship is all set to change because of the famous Meghan Markle wardrobe

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex is a woman with many qualities. She is well-spoken, affable, beautifulgraceful and a true fashion icon, among other things. But a royal snub she is not. However, it looks like she may have to become one because of Victoria Beckham. 

The 37-year-old royal and the fashion designer are rumoured to be close BFFs. In fact, it was said that when Markle made the transition to the UK during her initial dating days, she was welcomed warmly by the Beckhams.

In the months following Markle's engagement to Prince Harry, the former actress even wore a VB jumper. She was seen donning a cream VB jumper to one of her official royal visits.    

Plus, the fact that the two share a mutual love for all things beauty cannot be denied. With all this camaraderie and closeness, it was natural to see the couple being invited to the royal wedding, as well. 

In fact, Vanity Fair earlier reported that Beckham had been giving Markle fashion advice ever since she came to England. 

"They get along well and have been in touch recently," a source revealed. "Meghan really likes Victoria's style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe. She loves Victoria's elegant but smart dresses, so expect her to wear one very soon," the source added.

But with a new revelation looks like their relationship is all set to change because of the famous Meghan Markle wardrobe.

In an interview with the Glamour magazine during her Suits days, Markle reportedly shared that she learnt the art  of dressing through her television stint. 

"What I'm starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn't mean they're going to look amazing on me," she shared. 

Markle Conscious About Her Short Physique, Forcing Her To Avoid Beckham's Designs

She quickly added that she now understands what looks best on her and while she'd love to wear Victoria Beckham dresses, she knows she cannot. 

"For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don't have the long torso to support that silhouette," she explained.

"I wear a lot of Burberry on the show, and I wear a lot of Prabal [Gurung], because Rachel's whole aesthetic is someone who comes from money and has a real classic design sensibility. It's really modern because she's still young," Meghan shared at the time.

In the same interview, Markle revealed that her character on television loves to wear fitted clothes. But she is personally more of a relaxed causal kind of gal. 
"On a normal day, I love a shift dress with flats and a little cropped jacket," she said about the famous Meghan Markle wardrobe. 

The now pregnant royal added, "That for me is my travel wear if it's not too chilly — you can throw a scarf over your legs if it's cold on the plane! On the show I wear things that are so body conscious, so it's nice to have things that are a little easier to breathe in."

"As I've gotten older, I like longer dresses, but my legs come up to my ears and I'm not very tall, so when I wear a short skirt I've got to be really conscious," she shared at the time.

Through the interview, she not only revealed more about the famous Meghan Markle wardrobe. But also what she loves about Victoria Beckham's designs, but also indirectly spoke about body positivity.

She shared that she felt conscious about her height and her short torso forcing her stay away from VB clothes, even though she is a fan. 

Let's not forget that Markle has happily worn an odd VB jumper here and there. But it doesn't look like she would be donning any of VB's designs that clearly more fit for supermodels than regular women.

If that isn't conjecture, then to that we say, good on you Meg!
