Prince Harry and his fiancee, US actress Meghan Markle sported the bag designed in Edinburgh.

The stunning burgundy leather bag - complete with contrast navy blue and white elements and a funky long metal bar clasp - is designed by Strathberry.

The brand was founded in 2013 by designers Guy and Leanne Hundleby and they work out of their premises on the Capital’s Walker Street. The pair set up the business after noticing a gap in bags between High Street and designer ranges. Their now famous Strathberry bag - which was worn by the US actress yesterday - comes in a range of colours - with funky names such as Blossom Yellow and Rainbow Blue -and fabrics and costs £295.

After the Suits star was seen holding the bag it sold out within minutes on the company’s website.
