Meghan Markle has once again cemented her status as a fashion icon after a Dior handbag she held during an outing in New York City, which paid tribute to Princess Diana, sold out online.
On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Global Citizen Concert in New York City, where they spoke of the importance of vaccine equity. Following their appearance, the duchess, who wore a white Valentino dress, was photographed leaving the event while holding a black Lady D-Lite purse by Dior.
Meghan’s purse choice was meaningful, as the Dior Lady D-Lite Bag is the “sister bag” of the Lady Dior handbag, which is named for Prince William and Prince Harry’s late mother, Diana, according to the French fashion house.
“Wearing the sister bag of the iconic #LadyDior that was named after Princess Diana, Meghan Markle is the epitome of Dior elegance, as she steps out with her #LadyDLite bag at Global Citizen Live in New York,” Dior tweeted on Wednesday, alongside photos of the duchess carrying the black purse with gold details.
As noted by royal expert Omid Scobie, as of Thursday, the Medium Lady D-Lite Bag, which retails for $4,900, had sold out on Dior’s website.
“That was quick! Within hours of posting, @Dior sold out worldwide,” Scobie tweeted.
In addition to the black version held by Meghan, the brand’s Lady D-Lite bag, which is fully embroidered and features a Dior charm and a removable embroidered shoulder strap, also sold out in the gray and beige versions. However, the large Lady D-Lite is still available for $5,300.
The Lady D-Lite Bag was released by the fashion brand in 2020, with it described at the time as a more casual version of the iconic Lady Dior bag, which was a favourite of Princess Diana’s.
During the duke and duchess’s trip to New York City, Prince Harry also showed off an accessory emblazoned with a heartfelt monogram, with the royal’s portfolio embossed with “Archie’s Papa” in gold, in honour of the couple’s son.

“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what the pain feels like,” Harry said of his father. “I will always love him but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened.”
